    We have an older HQH307 heater that was working fine until the right side element went out. The left side continues to work fine. Does anyone know what may have caused this and where we can find parts and/or repair manuals?

We have a Presto quartz heater and have gotten replacement tubes from: National Presto Industries, Inc., P. O. Box 1172, Eau Claire, WI 54702-1172
In 2004 the cost was 26.00 for two (S&H included). We bought the heater in 1984 and it is still running great - we love it!

SOURCE: I have the holmes HQH307

Facing forward in the heating area at the top, between the elements is a round disc like object, about the diameter of a nickel. That's the thermal circuit breaker. With the power unplugged, try to clean the surface of it with some alcohol on a long cotton swap. Then use a can of compressed air and lightly blow at it with the guster. You'll need a long plastic blow tube to reach it. Make sure it is dry and that you actually forced the air into the breaker behind the disk to clean it out inside too. You can tell because as you blow around the edge it will lift the disk. You'll see.

I hope you can accomplish this and that it works for you. You could take the unit apart. But it is quite difficult to get it back together. As the grill, which you will have to remove, was not really intended for reassembly. Honestly, this is not a serviceable unit and I would not suggest taking it apart unless you have a lot of patience.

That part you are cleaning is not available, neither from the part manufacturer nor Holmes. They want to sell you a new heater. I won't buy anything else from Holmes now. Delonghi is the company I will try next for a heater. I'll see how that goes and if parts are available to service the unit in five years.

HELLO,
Sounds like you have a defrost problem since the freezer side is working okay . It probably is not blowing cold air into the refrigerator side , so to check the defrost circuit , unplug the refrigerator and inside the refrigerator section at the top about 2" in from each side in the back , there are "D" slots to put a finger in , and pull downward and forward , to remove the control panel cover . Once removed , there is a 1/4" screw on each side holding the adjustment indicator panel on , 1 phillips screw behind both light bulbs , and 1 screw holding the complete panel to the rear wall . After removing these 5 screws , at the top right corner , with about 6-8 wires going to it , is the adaptive defrost board . Sometimes you can see the electronic board and on newer refrig's , a white box will be seen. Inside this box , is the adaptive defrost control . Disconnect the plug going to the board and on the right side of the PLUG , the far right wire is yellow , then another color , then white . Useing a small insulated wire with both ends stripped , insert one end into the yellow wire hole and the other into the white wire hole . This will bypass the adaptive board and send power directly through the defrost bimetal ( thermostat ) AND heater to check if they are good .Plug the refrigerator back in . Now , wait about 3-5 min and look for a red glow at the bottom of the inside freezer panel , which will be the defrost heater or listen for sizzling which will be the frost melting and dripping onto the heater .If NO red glow , watch for a spark while removing the jumper wire you installed , from the plug . If a spark IS seen , then the heater was on and the heater AND bimetal are good . If you see the red glow , hear the sizzling , or see the spark , then the adaptive defrost board should be replaced . If no glow , sizzling or spark , then unplug the refrigerator and reinstall the refrigerator control section . Remove the food in the freezer section enough so that the 2 screws holding the lower freezer panel on and the freezer panel , can be removed . Remove the panel . If the heater (black element at the bottom of the coils ) wires are visible , trace then to the top of the coils and disconnect . Use an ohm meter to determine if the element is good . If the element IS good , at the top of the coils , is a 1" cylinder with 2 wires , clipped onto the coils . This is the defrost thermostat ( bimetal ) . Replace this part if the element shows good . If the element shows bad , replace the element . NOTE 1 : sometimes the element and the bimetal come wired togather and the replacement part comes with a new heater and bimetal already wired togather . This would be the adviseable replacement part . However , each part can still be replaced individually . NOTE 2 : If looking at the bimetal and the top plastic " cap " looks cockeyed , replace the bimetal as moisture has gotten inside and disturbed its designed function .

I hope this will help to solve the problem...

Need heating coils for HQH307. Where can I find them?


Unfortunately, you can't. These heaters are only repairable by the factory. If it's more than a few years old, it's best & cheaper to buy a new one.

dirt , foriegn material,spider web in gas feed line to the right side ceramic element of mr heater big buddy. take plastic back of heater
off, many #1 philips or smaller screws. find large air induction holes
in gas feed line to right side ceramic element and blow out with compressed air and fine tiped /straw tipped air blow gun.
straw tipped air blow gun is a better tool for this.
reassemble & try lit mr heater again.
If it dont work after air blow gun the gas feed tube, you didnt get the gas feed tube cleaned out ,***** & span (something still in there ) and will need to disassemble the gas feed tube and inspect for foreign material blocking the gas flow.

If this dont work,need to take the gas feed line off the gas valve attached to Mr. heater red knob. red knob just pulls straight out, might need pliers to grab red knob.
check gas valve output for dirt etc that stop gas from getting through. check inside the gas line to the ceramic burner for dirt,
foriegn material- that stop gas from flowing through strong.

any stopage of gas flow , even a slight stopage or dirverting of the gas flow, spider web is common, will stop ceramic element from burning properly.

needs to be clean ,like a carburator.

Top half of both fridge and freezer appears to have stopped working.


Your defrost heater or defrost thermostat may be bad. Test defrost heating element for continuity. If heater is good, replace the defrost thermostat. In most cases, replacing both is advisable.

I have a holmes heater,,one side of the heat elliment does not work now,,any replacement parts??


There are not any that I am aware of and if there is it is probably as much for a new element as what the heater cost. At Walmart the heaters can be purchased rather cheaply. Some items it is cheaper to replace the entire item than it is to replace parts. Cost of parts, then shipping, then your time installing them, not really cost effective. Sorry but that is the truth and possibly cheapest way.
