I have a Delonghi HVR 9033 Retro fan heater and amd having issues with it. When i plug it in the red light on top goes on and the fan will go round for maybe 1 minute before turning off. Regardless of what i then do with then dial it doesn't repsond and the heater fan won't turn and emit any heat. It only responds when i then set the dial back to 0 and the light goes off.

Re: Delonghi Floor heater
Since it is only 6 months old, it is still under warranty. In this case, I think the best thing to do would be to get it serviced/replaced under warranty, and I wouldn't want to touch anything on it to void the warranty. Looks like there is a circuitry issue here.

I don't know your particular unit, but typically multiple plugs on the same board have a slightly different configuration from each other making it impossible to install incorrectly. I would suggest closely inspecting the male ends one by one and compare them to the female receptacles and see if that holds true on your application.
Make sure the tank outside has oil ( Kerosene) in it. Check the fuel tap (under the tank) is turned on. When you press and hold the heat control button, it should ignite after a few minutes. The lever on the bottom is the fan control switch (high speed or low speed fan) Make sure that the unit is plugged into the power. If I remember correctly, a red light appears to say it is powered up on the bottom left hand side.
The fan motor is bad, it will give you a power light but nothing else. To be quite honest with you it is cheaper to replace the heater then to go thru the agrivation of replacing the fan motor. Sorry this is probably not the answer you were hoping for.
MILKHOUSE HEATER "CAUTION LIGHT" SOLUTION: Before I explain, let me clear this myth up: this is NOT an issue with the pendulum safety switch (some mistake that for a "mercury" switch). To begin, unplug the heater. Open it up and clean it out. I mean, buy a can of non-chlorinated brake cleaner and squirt all of the contacts good. Below the fan there is a sensor mounted on the heater element box on the bottom. That goes bad and causes it to trip. While you are there, squirt the motor bushings good with the brake cleaner and dab a drop of synthetic motor oil (just a drop) on EACH of the two motor bushings. Personally, I rewired this and bypassed all of the safety features. You can bypass that sensor without soldering or cutting any wires. All you have to do is unscrew the wires from the holder and then unscrew the tiny nuts and tiny bolts. Then bolt the together at one end (note the position) and put it back in the holder and tighten the screw to hold it in. This method fixes the issue completely as it removes the sensor from the equation. In fact, I just did that on my third milkhouse heater and it has been running solid for the last 15 minutes. Use your modified heater with caution! Let the brake cleaner dry before you energize this device!
The 1 setting is a 750watt setting and the 2 is a 1500watt or twice the heat...the light will always be on when you have power...the fan will go on if there is a call for heat and if the room if fairly warm it will be all the way to the top..does the company charge for assistance??? never heard of such a thing...
1. Check electricity is on.
2. Check oil is in the tank and valve turned on.
3. Switch the fan off at the bottom left hand corner.
4. Switch oil knob to No.1.
5. Set Air knob to No.3.
6. Operate re set button (right hand corner of heater under settings dial). Either press in until it clicks or if the pull out version pull out until it clicks.
Wait - ignition should take place in a few minutes and flames will appear on the left of the burner under the radiants.
You should get occasional yellow crests above the pure blue flame just visible below the top row of burner holes under the radiants.
After the red warning light goes out you can adjust to higher settings.
The radiants do not glow on low setting.
You can adjust the heater on to higher settings but this should be done gradually - no more than 2 settings at a time.
* The unit must be correctly earthed.
* Do not use anything except heater oil.
* Never attempt to re-light the heater when it is hot.
* If the red light does not appear when the oil knob is switched on, immediately turn the oil knob off. Reasons include: Heater is too hot; Electric plug turned off; failure of ignition system.
Good luck - no responsibility taken for the advice (but it is largely copied from my Vulcan heaters instruction manual which I still have (installed in 1967).
