Question about Comfort Zone Heating & Cooling
The heater runs for a few minutes and then shuts off. the digital display goes dark for a minute or so and then lights back up but heater does not kick back on.have to click on again
I had the same problem. It would cut off after approx 30 sec to 1 min. If the power shuts off or screen and lights go off most likely the problem is the thermal cutoff switch comonly called a thermostat. (Be Sure you are getting good air flow also check filter JIC) I found the problem but the parts in the systema are cheap off brand parts. Low quality circuit boards and soldering. The PN on the switch was unknown. Since I didnt know the cutoff temp I called the mfg which did not offer any parts, prints etc. This is an expensive throw away heater is basically the answer I recieved. My unit also had very low use as it is used as a supplimental heat ocassionally. Instead of tossing the unit I looked a little closer at the switch. I found 120 deg C stamped on one of the .25 QC terminals. On the front it is stamped 120/240V 16A. After a search I found the SRL250. It is a 250 deg F 15A 120/240VAC. (120 deg C = 248 deg F). It is 1 amp less which is fine as the 1500W unit should not draw 15 or 16 Amp. I now have the heater running again. You can find this part online or you local appliance parts house should have it. Or Cross ref to another mfg. Hope this helps.

It is a strong possibility the flame sensing electronic thermocouple has become contaminated. Buildup on it causes malfuctioning like you described. To remedy it you simple remove the flame sensor and clean it with steel wool. here is a video I found on line:

Testimonial: "thanks, I think this just might be the problem. I really appreciate the help."
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.
PS Please keep me informed of the situation, as I would love to be of any help you may need.
