    NO. I am living with the machine as is. I leave it on 74-78, and it brings the room to 64! must have rejected thermostats installed. Nice going, Holmes. jk

Fan on gas wall heater shuts off and on every 3 minutes, but the flame is on the entire time.


It always helps to add the model number of the item you want help on. However if it's like the newer units, the fan operates whenever the heater wall has reached a high enough temperature and shuts off when the heater cools off. It is not wired into your thermostat or electrically wired to the heater. It does that with a temperature driven fan switch in a little junction box mounted to the heater. Normally when that box gets hot because the heater is on the fan comes on, when it cools off the fan goes off. The junction box will have an ac cord coming out of it. If this fan switch junction box is not properly mounted it could be getting cooled off when the fan starts and then shuts itself off. After it heats up again it starts the fan. The other possibility is the temperature based fan switch is failing and needs replacement. See link.

My heay surge stove will run for awhile and then shut down


The heater is thermostatically controlled, so once the room temperatures reaches the heater's preset temperature, the heater cycles off. This is normal.

However, If the heater goes off BEFORE the room reaches the preset temperature, suspect a high temperature safety switch that may be tripping. Does the heater come back on after it cools down?

How do I use the Delonghi trv0715 1500w Vento High speed convection heater


The owner's manual is available as a PDF here: http://www.delonghiusa.com/index.php?product&nid=107 .

Many recommend you plug the heater in and turn it on in a well-ventilated room (like a garage) for the few hours of use. If you are using the heater to warm a room, plug it in with the thermostat set to maximum and set the power selector to 3 until the room reaches the desired temperature. Then rotate the thermostat clockwise until you hear a click. You can set the power level to 1 or 2 to conserve energy while maintaining the current temperature settings.

If you are trying to avoid frozen pipes in an area, plug in the heater and set the power selector to 3 and thermostat to *.

Always remember to keep anything flammable away from the heater (loose drapes etc.) There is an overheating protection circuit built into the unit. To reset it, you need to call the DeLonghi service center.

I hope this helps.

I just installed a honeywell 5-2 progammable thermostate.. Everything is hooked up fine and I have my days, hours wake, sleep, leave...etc all set, but when it goes on.. for example, I have it set for...


You didn't include a model number, so it's hard to know for sure - but I'll take a stab at this one. Many of these t-stats have a programmable offset to reduce "hunting". This can be as little as 1 degree or more than 2 degrees.

This means if you set the offset to 1 degree and the room temperature to about 65 degrees, the furnace will heat the room until the t-stat registers a rising temperature of 66 degrees. The furnace shuts off and will not turn on again until the t-stat registers a falling temperature of 64 degrees. The average is 65 degrees, and prevents the furnace from starting and stopping numerous times instead of just once with the 1 degree offset.

You can further reduce the number of furnace start and stops by increasing the offset to 2 degrees. This would work like this when the t-stat is set to 65 degrees and the room is cool:

Room Temp Furnace
63 On
64 On
65 On
66 On
67 On
68 Off

The room is now warm and heat or furnace is off. The room begins to cool like below:

67 Off
66 Off
65 Off
64 Off
63 Off
62 On

With a 1 degree offset, the room temperature varies +/-1 degree (about 2 degrees total). With a 2 degree offset, the temperature about varies +/ -2 degrees (about 4 degrees total).

Also, when the thermostat shut the heat off, the heat that was made is delivered to the space instead of wasted by sending outdoors - so the room will get a little warmer even though no fuel is being burned. The same holds true at the other end. When the t-stat turn heat on, fuel is burned, but there's little heat until the source has reached the optimum temperature and then the heat is delivered to the space.

I hope this helps & good luck! Pleas rate my reply - thanks!

I have a minimax ch 150 heater and the heater is running but the water coming out is not as hot as it used to be. Though the heater is extremely hot on the outside. Any tips?


Check your SENSOR. With the Minimax ch heater, you might be using an 'IntelliTouch' panel that controls your equipment. If you are, check the reading that the panel says the water temperature is and then check the temperature of the water 'coming out' (spa??) manually with a floating thermometer. When the heater cycles off, check the difference between the 2 numbers. Say the panel says 102 & the thermometer says 95?? - that is a faulty sensor, telling the heater that the water has reached 102, so it cycles off before ever getting hot. If you're not using the IntelliTouch, you will be checking the display panel on the actual heater itself & again the floating thermometer. Now... if the temperature is less than a 4 degree difference you can always calibrate/or have calibrated the heater.

Honeywell Thermostat RTH7400D


The thermostat will not cut off the A/C until the thermometer reading gets to 76.

If there is not a heat source near/behind the thermostat which is causing the thermometer to read higher than actual room temperature, it sounds like the thermostat thermometer is out of calibration.

There are ways to calibrate it, but much to involved to go into here.

One solution is to just set the thermostat at 80, knowing that it's really set on 76.

Another solution is to replace the thermostat.

My Vornado TouchStone Vortex heat 500 Heater - temperature


After calling Vornado Corporation, they suggested that the room temperature monitor might be failing as it read 65 degrees no matter where you started the heater. I took the unit back to the store I purchased it from, and we unpacked another unit and found the same problem existed. Therefore, the product is not capable of heating a room properly and I will continue my search for a space heater to control the temperature in my upstairs office which does not have air ducts for heat.

If anyone has recommendations I would be interested in their comments.
Thank you.
