Heat pump not keeping up to set temperature on thermostat but never drops below 63 degrees whens its 20 degrees outside.

It may be getting low on refrigerant due to a small leak. I'd have it serviced soon. When running at less than peak efficiency it will much more often switch on the heat strips and they are not cheap to operate.

Why has my oil wave heater stopped working and how can I fix it!?

There are several components which could be bad. Depending on the model, there could be the power switch, fuse, thermostat, and heating element. You'll need an AC voltmeter or AC test light or jumper wire in order to test each one.

Won't Turn On

My suggestion is that it is either the power control switch or failure of the heating element. Sudden failure can occur even in something brand new.

Bionaire BCH9212 does not produce heat

These Bionaires (including your 9212 and its taller version, the 9224) have a small temperature safety relay mounted slightly above the ceramic heating elements. Its purpose it to shut off the elements if they overheat, which I would assume would happen if the fan stops working or possibly if the outlet to the front becomes blocked (and these ceramic elements, which are like a radiator core, do get a lot of dust accumulated on the inside which will block air flow). The sensor is a small unit with exposed contacts and if these contacts open (driven by the temperature sensor connected to them) or if these contacts do not have good contact (say by dirt or oxidation build up that makes them effectively fully or partially open) then the ceramic elements will not work. My best suggestion to explain your problem is that the contacts on that safety switch became dirty during storage. The only way to verify that (and possibly repair the unit) requires taking the outside shell off and cleaning the contacts of the safety switch with either a small, fine file (like the old ignition files) or maybe fine emery cloth.

Our two heat dishes stopped working a few days apart. The power light comes on but the heat does not come on. Is there a fuse to replace or did they both burnout the heating element?

Can you use a continuity checker, and get into the inside of the control panel cover?

You need to check continuity, from one side of the plug, in thru the switch, thermostat, and limit device, thru the element, and back to the others side of the plug--

Can you do that?

Let me know how your continuity testing goes, and get back with me, on what you find.

The thermofuse that comes before the heating element is blown. Even when I jump it the element doesn't heat up. Once I replace the thermofuse will this solve the problem? Thanks Ray

I'm afraid the answer to your question is no it probably won't fix your heater. I think your element is bad or it should have worked when you jumpered it. Sorry I don't have better news. Thank you

Heating element isn't working

Sounds like the heating element isn't getting current. If you have a continuity checker or ohm meter, test the element - isolated from the fan and/or switches. If that passes, look for a thermal fuse that looks like a 22-caliber bullet. See if it passes current. Then check the function of the switch, thermostat, and any safety cut-outs like tip-over switches.

Loud buzzing after heating up

the buzzing is normal.  there is an element inside the quartz tube much like a filament in a light bulb.  as this heats up it starts to move.  where you have electrical energy you also have magnetism produced. metal objects vibrate when they are in or within a magnetic field. the element is tungsten wire and vibrates off this magnetic field.
