Re: heater will not operate!

Did you take it apart to see if the switch is good or the thermostat was functioning?  without looking inside, other than saying it don't work, isn't going to solve anything.

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.

I have a Holmes accutemp model HOH2520 TG-U. The heater operates for about 10-15 minutes and then the digital readout starts fluttering and it stops heating. The next day it does the same thing. Nice...

Will not turn on. Unit has been working great until tonight. Was on but now off and will not come on. Unpluged it for an hour but still not working.

This same thing happened to me, and yesterday as well no less. I've had mine for a 3-4 years. I think It had run out of oil, which is weird because I've had a Holmes heater for nearly 10 years and it still has plenty of oil left. If you shake it, can you hear the oil? I went and got another from Target last night (it was the coldest night of the year) and can hear the oil swishing around in it as I set it up. Hope it last longer than another 3-4 years or my next one will be a Holmes.

Heater is not coming on

That makes sense, you were pulling well over over 20 amps. It doesn't make sense but it appears the heater failed. I would assume the heater has an electronic control that got zapped by the surge generated by the vacuum cleaner when the breaker tripped. If it is not an expensive heater just get a replacement. Unless you are experienced in repairing these things it is much safer just to replace it.
Good Luck,

Control panel blinking

my heater did the same, very frustrating. i have solved this problem.  i took off the plastic cover to expose the electronic circuit board and noticed that there was a white residue on the board. I wiped this clean with rubbing alcohol and put everything back. as of 3 weeks ago i have used the heater frequently as normal and not had any problems. chazdee

My oil-filled Holmes heater HOH2520U will not heat now. it was working for a while the shut its self off and now the control panel is constantly blinking unless it is set at the room temp. HELP PLEASE

I had the same problem. this is what i did. unplug the heater. removed the plastic panel to expose the control panel where the blinking light is.  Removed all the dust and cobweb build up, then using rubbing alcohol, wiped the white residue that was on the green circuit board. I did this 10 days ago and the heater has been working fine since then. chaz

Not heating

Sounds like either the thermostat or the element. If you hear a clicking when you rotate the thermostat you can assume that it is working. My advise is to replacethe heater. The element is sealed inside the oil chamber and the thermostat will cost almost as much as a new heater, sorry.

Oil filled Heater will not turn on and heat.

First thing make sure: · Ensure that your circuit breaker or fuse is working properly. · Be sure the heater is plugged in and that the electrical outlet is working properly. · Check for any obstruction. If you find any obstruction, turn the heater ?OFF?. Unplug the heater and wait a few minutes for it to cool down. Carefully remove the obstruction. Plug the heater in and turn it on again by referring to the OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS. Second, If you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the heater and look for anything strange like a blown fuse. A lot of times you can buy replacement at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace.
