We have one in our office where our entry is pretty close to teh main door. It used to buzz all the time after being on for maybe 10 minutes. One day I got sick of it and took a cloth and some windex and cleaned the reflecting dish, and that actually stopped it

Where can i locate the on/off machinism for the presto heat dish?


Handy top-mounted thermostatic control maintains the desired temperature automatically plus it has a special safeguard features turn the heater off automatically in case of accidental tip-over. Because of this technology they eliminated an on/off switch. You have to unplug it if you want it to be totally off. sorry

RE: Presto Heat Dish buzzer going off


I almost threw my heater out! I cleaned this morning with Window Cleaner and it works just fine now. It was just dust. I cleaned the round metal area not the coils.

Hope this helps.

Emailed Presto about replacing the buzzer and here is the answer I got:


There is no such part. Buzzer sounds when heater:
- is tipped
- rests uneven on floor
- is too close to furniture or wall
- has too much dust on parabolic dish
The most common reason is that the parabolic dish is dusty.
To clean the heater:
1. Unplug the heater and clean it when it is cool
2. Spray a cloth with an all-purpose cleaner such as 409
3. Wrap the cloth around a long handle such as a wooden spoon
4. Wipe between the grate from the outer edge to the center
If you have further questions, please let me know. Or call us at 1-800-877-0441 Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central Time.

My heater makes this constipating noise and the "tilt" alarm goes off after 10 minutes. I'm never able to turn it to the high position.


This is the answer I got from Presto. I cleaned it with window cleaner, wooden spoon and paper towels. Dish works great now.

Presto Heat Dish w/footlight


This heater must be flat on the floor or it will buzz, and the metal dish must be clean or it will transfer heat to the safety device. If this does not solve the problem call customer service at 800-877-0441.

Presto HeatDish Problem


I rewired my heat dish. I UNPLUGGED THE HEAT DISH. I loosened the three screws on the back and removed them. Then I unclipped the dish at the bottom. The dish should be loose and the bottom section of the dish should be detached from the plastic casing. Look inside the casing at the bottom. There is a red cable attached to the buzzer (it’s the silver metallic piece). Detach the red cable from the buzzer. Now look directly behind the buzzer is a black wire that connects to the circuit next the buzzer. Attach the red cable to the female receptor foot the black cable. Plug it in and it should work fine. This will permantly disable the buzzer, SO YOUR HEATDISSH NOW LOINGER HAS A WARNING SYSYTEM. IF YOU TURN YOUR HEATER OVER THE BUZZER DOES NOT GO OFF, THE BUZZER ALSO INDICATES OVERHEATING OF THE UNIT. SO BE CAREFULL. MAKE SURE THE UNIT IS UNPLUGGED WHEN WORKING ON IT. GOOD LUCK AND BE SAFE
