Depending where you live, here in Vermont we take square footage and multiply by 30 for a rule-of-thumb calculation. This gives us a very conservitive Btu rating. New York City use 20 Btu per square foot and Washington D.C. use 15.

Heater won't stay on, I heard there was a recall on this item.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
I am only answering part of your question (Recall) so do not rate the post so other experts can help you with your heater won't stay on problem.
Your heater model is not one of the 4 models that were recalled.

The recall involves Holmes® models HFH6498-U, HFH6500-U and HFH6500TG-U and Bionaire® model BFH3530-U. The recalled heaters also have date codes beginning with 2604 through 3804 for all units, except for Holmes® model 6500TG-U, which has date codes ranging from 2604 through 4704. The model and date code can be found on the silver label on the back of the unit. The heater fans are 26 inches tall; come in all gray, two-tone gray, or black and gray; and have either the word Holmes® or Bionaire® printed on the front of the base.

Off/on switch only stays in Of positmpsp2@alum.rpioion even though the u;nit turns on.


It seems to be a mechanical problem, the most probable cause is the bad switch.
Try to open it and see you will come to know about the faults.
There i nothing to worry because the product is working so everything is else is fine.

Remote for BFH3430-U


It is made by Holmes and like you I cannot find their heater parts - I wonder if it is not due to fire hazard by home repair

Heater comes on but quickly over heats.


There is no Filter On this Model. Check to make sure there is Dirt in the Flow way of the two towers. if that is not it the back up fuse in the heater is going bad.

figure out your square foot requirements - multiply 16 X 20 to get 320 sq ft. Find a heat formula to consider windows and doors and known insulation in the walls. this will give you BTu output required to raise the inside air from 68 degrees (norm) to 72 degrees.

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.
