Question about Holmes Products HQH307 Compact Heater
Facing forward in the heating area at the top, between the elements is a round disc like object, about the diameter of a nickel. That's the thermal circuit breaker. With the power unplugged, try to clean the surface of it with some alcohol on a long cotton swap. Then use a can of compressed air and lightly blow at it with the guster. You'll need a long plastic blow tube to reach it. Make sure it is dry and that you actually forced the air into the breaker behind the disk to clean it out inside too. You can tell because as you blow around the edge it will lift the disk. You'll see.
I hope you can accomplish this and that it works for you. You could take the unit apart. But it is quite difficult to get it back together. As the grill, which you will have to remove, was not really intended for reassembly. Honestly, this is not a serviceable unit and I would not suggest taking it apart unless you have a lot of patience.
That part you are cleaning is not available, neither from the part manufacturer nor Holmes. They want to sell you a new heater. I won't buy anything else from Holmes now. Delonghi is the company I will try next for a heater. I'll see how that goes and if parts are available to service the unit in five years.
