First thing make sure: · Ensure that your circuit breaker or fuse is working properly. · Be sure the heater is plugged in and that the electrical outlet is working properly. · Check for any obstruction. If you find any obstruction, turn the heater ?OFF?. Unplug the heater and wait a few minutes for it to cool down. Carefully remove the obstruction. Plug the heater in and turn it on again by referring to the OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS. Second, If you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the heater and look for anything strange like a blown fuse. A lot of times you can buy replacement at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace.

Why won’t my edenpure heater throw heat even though I changed all the heat elements


It could be a fuse. They are small look kinda like a metal diode. Unplug heater, disconnect one side of power wire and do a continuity check on the heat strip circuit. You can also plug it in and do a voltage check on the two wires connected to the heat strip. Do this to see if you are getting voltage to the strips. Some heaters have safety switches that disconnect power when the heater falls over. It's a free swinging switch that might not have reset.

What is Technical Fault 51? It appeared a few moments ago on our machine, but when I switched it off and reset the machine it worked as normal again.

I HAVE A UNIDARE WMS724N, THE SOCKET SWITCH THAT SUPPLIES THE HEATER HAS BURNT THE SOCKET AND WILL NOT SWITCH OFF AT SWITCH, WHAT WOULD CAUSE THIS TO HAPPEN.


Please help us understand what you mean by 'The Socket Switch'-- are you talking about the socket where the heater is plugged into the wall outlet?- or are you talking about the on-off switch on the heater unit itself? (They do burn out, and 'weld the contacts together' internall-- and you can not shut them off, except by un-plugging.
Tell us more-- and we can help you more.- Mack B

I have a Big Maxx heater and it won't stop blowing and won't heat. The fan just keeps running! Anyone know what could be wrong?


Your pressure switch may not be activating (ie closing and making contacts) This means you could have a blocked flue, clogged pressure switch tube or a bad pressure switch. The pressure switch is a safety feature to ensure your exhaust is not blocked and operating correctly. Find owners manual. Look at trouble shooting section. Open cabinet and look for error code light. If blinking 3 times, try "jumping" the pressure switch. To jump pressure switch you need to clear code be turning off power. When the unit/thermostat calls for heat the power vent fan starts first, this is when you need to jump the pressure switch. You need to do this in sequence. That is the unit first starts the power vent exhaust thus activating the pressure switch allowing the ignition cycle to the burners and heat. So the power vent fan needs to start first BEFORE you put the jumper on to bypass the pressure switch. Once the jumper is on it will call for ignition after approx 30 seconds. If ignites your problem is one of the 3 stated at the opening of this paragraph

Heater won't operate


If the switch is easy to access, you could simply replace it -- but finding the switch may be nearly impossible, because of the type of unit you are talking about. Also, some of these oil gel heaters have the electronics encased in a non-acessable area, meaning if one component goes bad, the unit is basically done. Your best bet to find the switch is to start with the manufactures website. if there are no diagrams or repair manuals, you should be able to find some contact information about repairs
