I have a 3VE53 heater and was wondering about how much eletricity does it use if I keep it at 65-70 degrees for 9 hrs. a day?

Our last eletric bill was around 3 times as much and I am just trying to find out why.

Okay, for example a 100 watt bulb left on for 10hrs uses 100x10 =1000. so 1000= 1kwh. so look at the watt rating on the fan motor and times that by 9hrsand then do the math, then look at your bill and see what you pay per kwh (kilowatt per hour) and times that with your answer, for example lets say the heater blower is 10watts, take 10 X 9 = 90, then 90 divided into 1000=.09 so it .09 of a kilo watt almost a tenth of a kilo watt. so if you pay 3.25 a kwh then you would say .06X3.25=.195 less than one cent, hope this helps

Where is the mechanical fuel pump, im not getting any fuel to the carb and have already hit the fuel pump relay under the heater core inside the cab

if the truck has a fuel pump relay, then it's not a mechanical pump it's eletrical. If you're SURE it has a relay, then the ELETRICAL pump is in the fuel tank. If it's mechanical, it will be on the motor, near the belts. Not sure which side on a ford.

Eletric PTO is not working

The PTO draws a pretty good current, so a weak or loose contact in the switch, or in the connections on the back of the switch, could cause this overheating. But it could also happen if the PTO clutch itself or the wiring to it has a short. If the mower's still under warranty, get the dealer to diagnose and fix it. If not, then I'd measure the resistance of the PTO clutch - should be about 2 ohms - and make sure the wiring to it isn't shorted. If all that is OK, then just replace the PTO switch and any melted connectors and wiring. Good luck!
