Just needs a little TLC: We just bought this heater at Goodwill and it's still in very good condition. The fan wasn't working either, but there was definitely heat. So we took it home and took it apart just to the point where we could give the fan a good q-tip/tweezers cleaning (lots of dust was in there) and then used Penzoil motor high temp grease via a toothpick on the spinning fan axle and voila! The fan works now and doesn't make anymore noise either. Just a note: this is a tedious task that requires an extra hand to help hold things in place since you can't take the fan out completely.

    Awesome solution. It is hard to believe that a little dust does such a harm. Great advice on assembly too. The design should be improved to malke it a snap to put things back.

My batteries died on mt heat control, I changed them and now have nothing


http://www.gogeisel.com/geiselonline/support/Honeywell/CT3300_CT3355.pdf this is the programming manual- they have a note that if you show low battery after replacing the battery- put the battery in backwards, wait 10 seconds, then put the battery in correctly again to reset it- you will have to reprogram the clock time and date and any settings you had previously.

My heater is flashing filter and itis clean and the number 14 is flashing as well whats going on?


The 14 code is for an over heat. Even if the filters are clean you may have to look at the fan itself. Make sure the louvers in the front are open to let the air out of the cabinet.

Keep us posted,

2000 Silhouette: HEATER WONT GIVE OFF HEAT THEIR IS HEAT BUT WONT S...


Check the water level. If the water is low it will not allow water into the heater core to produce heat. If there is water keep an eye on your temperature gauge It should reach at least 140 to 170 degrees. If it is staying colder than that you have a stuck thermostat which is allowing the water to flow to much and not let the engine warm up. The only other solution is if the fan is not working properly replace the fan relay for you blower.

Heater wont work a fuse maybe? some how I doubt it. the rear window heater works. fan dead perhaps? no fan at all. not sure about heat.


Hi: Sounds like a possible heater resistor problem. First check to see if heater fan working, unplug heater under hood and put 12 volts to it from the battery with a wire (single black wire running to back of fan). If works then problem probably the resistor which is located on the fan housing under the hood to the right of the fan. The resistor has wires to it running from the heater fan, 2 - 7mm screws holding resistor in place, check resistor to see if any of the 3 elements are melted off, if so replace. Note: Rear window defrost has nothing to do with heater fan. Hope this helps...

Van is overheating and stays hot


first of all make sure that there is no air pockets left in the motor. these will cause an overheat right away.

the way to cure these is run engine with and radaitor funnel and once thermo opens, run the heater on high, this should take about 10 to 15 minutes.

WORST CASE SCENERIO:
You have a bad water pump!
