Question about Bionaire BCH-4138 Ceramic Compact Heater
I usually set the temp at 71 and set it in the auto - low mode. But as soon as the room temp is 71 say from 67 or 68, the heater turns itself off.
It was working perfectly last winter, but now it's not reliable 'coz as soon as i am asleep - it's stops working and i wake in the middle of the night 'coz it's too cold.
I take it once the temp is set to 71, and the ambient temp reaches 68 or so, it shuts off, never to come on again?
If that is true the thermostat in the unit is damaged, worn out or in need or replacement, but try a couple tricks.
First, if there are access panels to clean, clean it per the manual, it could be that a dirty filter or air inlet is confusing the thermostat.
Next, unplug the unit for at least 5 minutes, try it again.
Next set the unit on it's highest temp and blower setting, let it rip for 20 minutes, shut it down, unplug and remain unplugged for 5 minutes.
Next set the unit at 71 HIGH MODE.
see if we have a mode switch problem or thermostat if it works on high mode, it is not the thermostat, but I imagine it is, but I am curious as to if it once goes off, it never again comes back on?
