What type of heater? make/model should always be given so we have a fair chance of giving a good answer. In light of a lack of information, I must assume it is a portable electric heater.
Try adjusting the thermostat/temp control and see if it turns on. If it turns on but shuts off after a a minute, you may have it to close to other objects or a wall. The heater output can be blocked or recycled back into the heater which will cause the heater temp control to warm up fast and shut off.
"Consumers should stop using these heaters immediately, unplug them, and contact HCP at (800) 290-8495 between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. ET Monday through Sunday or log on to the company's website at www.honeywell.com to determine whether their heater is part of the recall."
As long as the burner works it is unlikly that the thermostat is your problem. It is more likly the fan limit switch needs replaced.Unfortunatly I am having no luck finding a wiring diagram for this model so I can't tell you where it is at,but I think that's the problem. Thank you. Sorry I'm not more help
Most of these heaters are not worth the price of repairing.You will spend more on labor then a new heater will cost. One thing you can try is to shut switch off on the heater and turn the thermostat to high then unplug unit for 10 mins. Plug back in and turn on. Some of these heaters will reset by doing this.It may not help but it costs nothing to try. Hope this helps you. Thanks
Turn the thermostat completely of leaving the propane on.Make sure it is plugged in and the ignitor functions Slowly turn the thermostat up and see if that works. Make sure the fan is working. Good Luck, Ned
the thermostat is a variable rotation type. turning it in one direction varies a gap on a set of contacts mounted on the inside of the front panel. take the heater apart by taking out the four screws in back. the front panel should come off and you'll see the thermostat contacts. rotate the knob and see what the contacts do. if they make up, your element might be shot.
