Question about Holmes Products HCH4953-U Ceramic Compact Heater
I have a "Holmes Whisper Quiet Twin Ceramic Heater (Model #: HCH4953)" that has a melted screw stud after a fault occured at one the sides of the power cord (the positive side of the cord; which it's on the narrow~prong side of the plug). As an electronics technician student, I'd already found the fault of this particular hearter of mine, but is there is a way that I can can somehow manage to mount the screw to the melted stud or allow the screw to stay in its appropiate place? Thank you very much to whom it may concern.^^
I am not sure I understand the description of the problem but let me take a shot at helping you. First off, you obviusly had a short of some sort that drew excessive current , causing a fault and ultimately got hot enough while drawing that excess current to melt something.. Here is where I am a bit confused. Power going to the heater elements comes off the thermostat and onto one side of your elements. If that is where the screw melted, can you remove th eoriginal screw and redrill and tap a new hole for a new screw to be used? If there is any question about the integrity of that termination then I wouldn't mess around with it since anything you do wrong , may result in a fire. So whatever you decide, be careful. If you can provide a picture or sketch of what it is that failed, I may be able to assist you further.
