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.

Why would a torpedo heater fan turn backwards? every time I start my all pro 115,000 heater the fan starts to spin counterclockwise and the heater wont ignite. But when manually spin the fan blade clo


If the fan has a 'run' capacitor, in rare cases, a faulty capacitor will cause a single phase motor to start in reverse. In most cases a faulty capacitor will cause the motor to only hummmm and not start or start slowly running the right direction then overheat and shut off.

See if there is a capacitor, change it first. If that doesn't fix it it sounds like its time for a new motor.

Fi have a older furnace that operates like this. main burners will come on then the blower turns on and furnace continues to heat untill it shuts down on the high limit. there is no blockage on the cold...


Maybe there is a blockage in the air conditioning coil above the furnace? This happens when people have pets, or dont use filters. Single phase 120-240 volt motors won't run backwards if you reverse the wiring that's dc or three phase, you have to check the rotation of the wheel, the right rotation is usually marked on the blower case. Some motors will allow you to change the rotation but you have to check the wiring diagram. Also use new capacitors when they go bad the motor can run backward. God luck

Just bought a Dayton electric heater to heat a 12' X 20' greenhouse in October. When the heater comes on it now makes a loud sound as if the fan is hitting something. I have it mounted horizonally near...


If it sounds like the fan is hitting something, It is likely you will have to get a step ladder, and look closely at what is making the noise-
Likely something fell in there-- and needs to be removed.

When you shut the thermostat down, does the fan stop instantly?

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,
