Honeywell HZ7040 shuts off after few minutes

My HZ7040 turns on and all functions work however after abuout a minute of operation, I hear a light click sound see inside a small spark when what looks like a bi-metalic strip with two points open up and the whole unit shuts off. The LCD screen goes blank. After a little bit, it will turn on again,(LCD works) and the cycle repeats - only working for a about a minute before shutting itself off.

Poor Quality Snap disc thermostats are the problem with many Honeywell products from day one. Since these are throw away products good luck in finding a replacement part.

Re: Honeywell HZ7040 shuts off after few minutes

This sounds like a theromostat problem. If you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the heater and look for the theromostat. A lot of times you can buy replacement at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Good luck!

Thermostat not running furnace properly


Assuming that particular thermostat has a common mercury switch, the wiring behind or just inside the unit may be causing a strong enough magnetic field to throw off the balance of the mercury (liquid metal). The same scenario could be caused by other wiring or devices near the thermostat.
To test this theory, hold a compass as near as possible to the thermostat and wait it to come on automatically. If the needle moves when the switch engages, the magnetic field is strong enough the throw the balance off.


When tucking-in the wires for the thermostat, avoid winding the wires in a spiral or wrapping them around anything. An active current through wrapped or winding wires will create an electromagnetic field.

Buzzing sound when aux heat comes on


Sounds like it could be a effiency function to warn you that the heat elements are on. Check your thermostat manual and see if you can turn this feature off. If this is not a feature then the thermostat may be wired wrong or something in the circuit may be trying to short out.

Cz 446 comfort zone ceramic heater shuts off


Hi, the problem you are having is the thermostat control, and dimming the lights is a indication of the neutral side of the control if faulty.It is drawing enough amps to make you're home lights blink, so I would stop using it now and if you are inclined to replace this control yourself I would. If this is something you would not care to take on, I would get an estimate for repair at a appliance repair store, compared to replacing the unit with a different one.I am sorry to tell you this, but it will only get worse and what I have recommend is for you're safety.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS Please keep me informed of the situation, as I would love to be of any help you may need.

The bat lo message will not go away even after replacing batteries.. No functions either


One thing you might want to try is to remove the batteries and wait for a few minutes until everything clears. It could take around 10 minutes or so. This will reset the thermostat. Also look on the back and/or on the board of the thermostat to see if there is a reset button.

I hope this helps! :)

Honeywell heater turns off after 3 min. Never comes back on


It sounds like the temperature sensor has either failed or come loose and is sitting too close to the heating coil. Alternatively, the level-sensor, which shuts off the heater when it is tilted, may be malfunctioning.
If the heater is not sitting level, it will also shut itself off.
In any case, if it is under warranty, return to the manufacturer. If it isn't, a local appliance repair shop should be able to isolate the problem.

Oil filled heater wont stay on


I was having the same problem and did a search to find this link. This morning when I turned it on, I backed the temperature down to 66 when it first came on (defaults to 70) and it appears to be working now (it's been on for over 10 minutes)

Honeywell surround heater shuts off


Had the same problem. The cause: The coils have too much dust on them.
Soultion: Take the bottom of the base off and clean/vacuum. While the base is off, you also have access to the interior of the heater. Remove the 2 screws on the bottom front, then the 2 on the bottom back. The plastic panels will come off and you'll have access to all internal areas. Just clean thoroughly and you should be good to go. You wouldn't realize it, but even with a spotless house, the heater will **** any small particle of dust.

My honeywell heater was working one minute and not working the next.


HI I have this heater and no manual , and I was doing research on the internet and found that these haeters have an automatic shut off if it gets too hot and it wont come back on for a while until it is cooled down. I just unplug mine awhile or turn it off and then it comes back on when it cools down.
