Htr shuts off after awhile and won't come back on till it's cooled down

It's totally electric w/thermostat. After it runs for up to 20 min it shuts off. The motor is extremely warm. After everything cools down, it repeats the cycle. Please help? I have an ikder Reddy Heater 50,000 BTU, it runs for about ten minutes and then starts to sputter. After it sputters a few times it kicks the reset out.

I had the same problem with my heater. It was a cracked fuel line. I replaced the rubber hoses. On mine there was a pick up hose and a feed hose. They were dry cracked. Works great now. Hope that helps you out.

Why is my air conditioner unit only running properly on cool days? when its hot out it only runs about 5 mins at a time then shuts off to fan and dont come back on for another 20 mins.


Do you hear a click sound as the compressor shuts down? If so that is the clixon (heat sensitive circuit breaker) that is opening and shutting down the compressor when it overheats. You have not had the AC filled with refrigerant so overfilling the unit cannot be an issue.
And if it is not overfilled overheating is caused by excessive current going into the motor which could indicate a problem with the motor windings..

OR, If the thermostat is faulty it could be prematurely shutting down the compressor. If you jump (bypass) the therm and unit does not shut off then you have found the culprit.

A/c runs for 10 min. then shuts off for 3 min. temp will not com down over 4 degrees.


Check the thermostat to ensure it is calling for cooling. If you are savvy disconnect all electrical energy from the A/C and jumper across the terminals of the temp control, if the A/C runs as is should you need a new control. You can also test it by setting a multi-meter to A/C volts and putting one lead each on the connections to the thermostat, if when the machine shuts down at a warmer than desired temperature and the meter reads volts it is open and not demanding cooling, replace it. if the thermostat continues to demand cooling but the machine shuts down call a tech, you may have a safety causing the shut down.

My Kawasaki twin engine model FD 590 on my lawn tractor sputters, looses power and shuts down after about 15 min of running. Will star after it cool down. Cause please??


Immediately check for spark after it dies. A failing ignition module will quit after it gets hot (about 10 minutes) then work again after it cools. Other causes could be a blocked tank vent; try to run till it starts to act up and loosen the fuel cap. See if it starts to run right again or if it does die it starts right back up. A sticking shut-off solenoid, sticking float needle or partially clogged fuel filter can also cause these symptoms. They let some fuel in but not enough and eventually the motor starves for fuel. then slowly the fuel fills back into the bowl and it will run again for awhile till it runs out of gas again.

Hi i have a ready heater 170T i cleaned it last year to help out our main heater in our barn for when its get way to cold for our main heater to keep up so i turn this on when i am back there for the day...


Based on your description of the problem ............The part where you say "wont relight till it cools down" is a sign that the motor may be getting hot, the internal sensor in the motor is shutting things down for safety reasons. To find out run the heater til it shuts down then remove the cover. Feel the motor. It should be room temp or slightly warm. If hot- replace the motor with 102001-30.

Other possibilities would be a defective thermostat or temperature sensor. Eliminate these possibilities first.

Furnace is 7 years old. Will not stay running for more than 5 min. Will start up again after shutting off and then run for another 5 min. Suggestions?


Check the air filter. Jump out thermostat to see if it stays running longer, if so replace thermostat. Make sure all return air ducts are clear of debris. If furnace has a Fan/Limit switch, make sure tabs are set at 100, 140 and 200. Sounds like something may be heating up and shutting unit off till it cools back down.

I have 2003 Mercury Grand Mrq. the fan is not shut down when I shut down the car; it keeps running consuming the battery in the car, there is a kind of electrical connector next to the fan upper right...


You have an electric cooling fan - this is normal for this to occur. Do not be alarmed. The fan is controlled by a thermostat. If your fan continues to run after 20 minutes then I would trace the wires, and check the connections to the thermostat. Verify the reading across the terminals are out of spec before replacing it. First, time the fan to see how long it runs for - just sit there and look at a magazine while you wait - it shouldn't be that long. When you hear it stop, look at your watch. If it's more than 20 minutes (I sincerely doubt it will run that long) then trouble shoot the thermostat as mentioned previously.

Htr shuts off after awhile and won't come back on till it's cooled down


I believe your heater has a solid state relay to start the motor when the motor gets to speed it is supposed to shut off. It may be stuck in the on position.

Rheem furnaace blower stays on


On a furnace the fan is controlled by a computer and a sensor ot a oldstyle fan thermostat. Basically it waits till the furnace heats up a little and then turns it on and after it shuts off it will run till the thermostat cools back down may take a few mins. In cool mode the thermostat controls the fan so it shuts down immediatly. This is why the thermostat asks you if its electric or gas heat. Should have a switch somewhere for this.
