    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.

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.

I need to order a new quartz element or tube, the part that produces the heat. my email address is allen134078@yahoo.com


These heaters do not have off the shelf replacement parts and were not designed to be repaired/serviced in the field. But, you can return it for repair. Go to www.holmesproducts.com

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.

Sounds like the thermostat or nobstat is burnt up. I have the same prob. The contacts welded together on mine making it unable to turn off and burning up the thermostart. Looking for one but haven't found it.

IIcant find parts for the holmes heaters. Who carries them?


I have the same problem. I mean it keeps going off prematurely. The heating area is relatively clean and there is no reason for this other than the Thermal Circuit Breaker to be going bad.

I too have fruitlessly tried to find the part. It is made by Klixon and the info about it is as follows: 1NT15L-4165 It is a manual reset bimetal temperature circuit breaker. Mine says L86 L = Limit and 86 I believe represents 86 degrees Celsius which is about 187 degrees F for us Americans.

I found the Klixon people and they told me the part was not available through them; but only through Holmes themselves. So, I of course called Holmes Customer Service.

Turns out that I had a little spat with Holmes' CS Jerky... She informed me that Holmes does not sell parts and that the heaters they build and sell are not serviceable. So, I argued that they are irresponsible with regard to the environment. What, it's supposed to go to a landfill now?

But she insisted that this was so that people didn't start fires with their heaters. And she says that she has two young girls at home and wouldn't want anyone burning down their house and killing their family. So I guess after all that has nothing to do with her keeping her job by Holmes selling me another $79 heater, huh?? lol Yeah right!!! Because the guy at corporate would not want one of their heaters to start a fire. That wouldn't be an acceptable risk to make money. (Sarcasm, in case you missed it)

On another note... It's real unfortunate that you have to take the HQH307 completely apart to clean the heating area so as to not have the heater be a fire hazard. But I'm a risk to my family by taking the thing apart and then removing the two retaining screws out and two wire leads off to replace the malfunctioning part. WTF??? Since I can't get the part I suppose I could just bypass the circuit breaker. I know that's not a good idea.

Well, bottom line is, (can ya take a guess?), that I will not be buying another Holmes Heater EVER!!! Thanks Holmes...

Answer: As far as I know you cannot get the part.

If anyone has a lead on the part please let me know here.

Thanks, LightningMan

Cleaning behind front screen.


Sorry my friend. You and I both know the answer to this. A complete disassembly and cleaning is needed. A fire hazard is a very serious event waiting to happen. Take care of this ASAP!

Marvin Quartz heater element


Very simple to install the replacement element. Insert one end of the element into the bottom receptacle on either side, press the element down (it's spring-loaded), then slide the top of the element into the center opening of the top receptacle, push to appropriate side (the side of receptacle, same as the bottom), then release. Then do the same with the other element (if both are out).
