Calore low profile heater that I can't get to work. The power is on to all the controls but won't heat. Can't find a instruction manual for troubleshooting. Got any ideas?

Calore model 63005 has a problem with the wiring to the heating elements being under rated, they burn out and the heater stops working. All the controls still work and it all seems ok but no heat comes out. I bought 2 of these heaters from Home Depot and both failed in the first week of operation. To fix u must have a qualified person replace the faulty wiring with 14 guage solid copper wire. This is what i did, But i do not suggest this course of action. heres what i suggest you do, first try to get a refund of your hard earned money, second take said heater, grab buy cord and smash on ground until it fits in a flat rate box from the post office and mail back to Calore with a note expressing your displeasure in them almost intentionally killing your family. I say intentionally because this product obviously has not been tested otherwise they would have found this problem and fixed if they really cared. In the worst case it has been tested and a decision was made to go ahead and market it with its problem relying on volume for profit. Anyway its just another product that demostrates that your money is more important than your safety to these companies. Dont buy any Calore products and send these companies a message that we will not tolerate such irresponsibilty.

Duracraft oil radiator - oil leak

The leak can be repaired, it is probably the sealant has dried and cracked. A plumber can fix this, so can a mechanic, so can a gas engineer or experienced electrician. Phone round your local businesses to see who will do the job cheapest. Tell them the heater is leaking from the seal between the radiator body and the thermostat where it screws in - you just think in needs fresh sealant. Shouldn't be expensive, its a 20minute job, unscrew the thermostat, clean up the threads, dab on the sealant and screw it back together.

My baseboard heaters humm while turned off. Not sure if this matters, but I believe that they are apox. 20+ years old. They work great when they are on, but I use my wood stove to save my power bill and...

I am assuming we are talking about a home or other domestic dwelling...

You didn't say what voltage the heaters operate on, but if you hear humming, then something is probably using power somewhere.

Go to the fuse or breaker panel and turn off the power to the heaters and see if the humming stops - it should.

Sometimes a relay gets stuck after several years and the heaters are "single phasing", or operating on 1/2 of the circuit. Most baseboard heaters (in the USA) are 220-240 volt so you can check to see if any power is present after the heating relay after the thermostat is off.

The problem could also be the thermostat itself especially if it operates on what is known as "line voltage." In this case, there probably won't be a heating relay. Again, check for power on the load side of the thermostat after you have turned it to its coldest setting and you are certain that the heat is off. Place a volt meter lead from each of the hot terminals to ground. No power should be present (going to the heaters). If power is there at either terminal then the T-stat is defective.

NOTE - if you are not familiar or comfortable with this type of work, it's best to call a licensed electrician to help.

We bought a house with a hot tub and do not have the instructions to it. We have a Manatee Electric spa heater made by Tropic Air Products, Inc manuf. 4/1997 model E-11 11 KW AMPS. We would love some...

I just looked at the exploded drawing for the Manatee. It looks like a very simple heater. The heater will simply come on whenever the pump is running and the thermostat says that the tub is not hot enough. So, for the heater, set it and forget it.

The adjustment you can make is by setting the low-speed pump timer. There should be a timer on the control box, somewhere. Generally, you set the timer to come on for a couple of hours, twice a day. During those times, the pump will come on low-speed and the heater will come on as needed.
Keep in mind that the tub will only heat when the pump is running so you will want to set the timer so that the tub has been running for at least an hour when you will be ready to use it.

Most controls will also allow you to put the pump on thermostat control, usually with a switch (timer/ t-stat). By running on t-stat control, the low-speed pump and heater will turn on whenever the temperature drops a couple of degrees.

Timer control is usually more efficient for two reasons:
1. The tub doesn't heat water when you don't need it (like while you are sleeping or at work).
2. The pump isn't cycling on and off all day and night. Cycling is not very efficient.

Tip: If you want to soak when the tub isn't hot, just turn the pump on for 10 minutes or so before you get in. That is a pretty big heater, and unless you have very poor insulation or a worn-out cover, the temp shouldn't drop too fast.

Another tip: The best way to save money on a tub is to maintain your pH. Check it EVERY WEEK! Incorrect pH will shorten the life of your heater and seals. One service call would have paid for a lot of electricity.

Please feel free to post follow-up questions.

Blower will not come on

could be the fan relay is bad. or the run capacitor. if these check good. you may have a bad heat sequencer. hard to tell, if you thave a/c you can turn thermostat fan swith to on and if blower comes on then relay and capacitor should be ok. some units have two or three heat sequencers 1 controls fan and the others control heat strips hopefully this helps good luck
