    Mie does the same thing, it runs for about 5 minutes, then shuts off, only to come on again when I hit the reset button. The heater was not used for a year prior to my turning it on again.

Hello I have a Holmes HS700 and it has been great until now. I was trying to dry something by tilting the heater but then realized it turned off each time I tilted it. Needless to say after a few...


Ed, try turning OFF the Master ON/OFF Switch and unplugging the unit. Wait 12-15 minutes and plug it back in. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls as you normally do. Hopefully the heater reset itself turn that 12-15 minute timeout. In the future don't tilt the heater and activate the tilt switch. Its like a Pin Ball Machine, you loose your turn if you tilt it.

Hope that helps to solve your problem.

I have a electralog fireplace model #cs 3311. It doesn't stay on very long. Even if i turn the thermostat up it doesn't turn on


It's probably the Temperature Cut Off Switch. It turns the heater off if it's overheating. To reset the switch turn the Main On/Off Switch to OFF . Wait 5 minutes and turn it back ON.

If you need to continuously reset the heater, unplug the unit and call Dimplex North
America Limited at 1-800-668-6663.

Hope this helped to solve your problem.

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

Humidifier does not reset


According to Holmes, one of the causes of the Reset light staying on is scale buildup on the heating element.

Remove Scale: Allow to cool before maintenance.
1. Repeat steps 1-5 in the Daily Maintenance section.
2. Clean the base by partially filling the base with one
8-oz cup of undiluted white vinegar. Let solution stand
20 minutes, cleaning all interior surfaces with a soft
brush. Dampen a cloth with undiluted white vinegar
and wipe out entire base to remove scale.
3. Rinse with clean warm water to remove scale and the
white vinegar solution before beginning to disinfect
the tank.
4. Wipe the heating element clean with a soft cloth after
it has had chance to cool.

If the scale has really built up it might take longer than 20 mins for the vinegar to get rid of it and you might need to refresh with new vinegar.

Good Luck.

Will not reset


Per the operators manual you have to reset it. 1. Unplug the unit
2. Remove and refill the water tank, being sure to follow the Daily
Maintenance Instructions. Replace the tank onto the base.
3. Wait 5 minutes for the Automatic Shut-Off to reset.
4. After the 5 minutes, plug in the unit and turn the unit on to HIGH
(HI). The RESET light should now be off (if not repeat steps 1 through
3). In about 2-3 minutes, the humidifier will begin to produce
moisture.

HM5081TG Reset Light won't turn off


Reset the unit once it is refilled by pushing the power button and holding it down for 5 seconds before releasing. This should reset your unit to factory settings.
