Burned Thermostaticaly Controled Switch

I require a new T.C. Switch for my 1 year old Presto Heat Dish. The copper filament connecting one of the contacts has melted away.

If available, I would like to find a supplier for the switch in Calgary Alberta.

Thanks!

    The TC switch copper fuse burned today morning. I tried few remedies such as sticking copper strips. But, they do not hold the high current. Mine is couple of years old, so can't even it return it.

    I guess I need it to junk it and buy something better.

no repairs, however you do have a full year warranty. Just return it to Costco and they will exchange it for you.

I bought a Presto Heat Dish at Costco (Calgary) and not even a year later the control switch's filament burned out. can you send a replacement switch or provide me with a local supplier so I can return the defective unit and repair it myself?


Thanks!

RE: Presto Heat Dish buzzer going off


I almost threw my heater out! I cleaned this morning with Window Cleaner and it works just fine now. It was just dust. I cleaned the round metal area not the coils.

Hope this helps.

Emailed Presto about replacing the buzzer and here is the answer I got:


There is no such part. Buzzer sounds when heater:
- is tipped
- rests uneven on floor
- is too close to furniture or wall
- has too much dust on parabolic dish
The most common reason is that the parabolic dish is dusty.
To clean the heater:
1. Unplug the heater and clean it when it is cool
2. Spray a cloth with an all-purpose cleaner such as 409
3. Wrap the cloth around a long handle such as a wooden spoon
4. Wipe between the grate from the outer edge to the center
If you have further questions, please let me know. Or call us at 1-800-877-0441 Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central Time.

Presto Heat Dish w/footlight


This heater must be flat on the floor or it will buzz, and the metal dish must be clean or it will transfer heat to the safety device. If this does not solve the problem call customer service at 800-877-0441.

Presto Heat Dish


The hardest part of cleaning the dish is that you can't get your hand inside the cage surrounding the dish. What I did was to use a wire cutter to snip enough pieces of the cage off so that I could get access to the dish. If you do it carefully, it looks as if it was intended and doesn't prevent the cage from working. If you think of the cage/dish as a clock, I cut all the strips between 9 and 11, and 1 and 3. Easy to clean the dish afterwards.

That might not solve the buzzing problem, though. It didn't solve it for me.

Presto Heat Dish Blows Circuit


It sounds like the heater is drawing more amps than your fuse is capable of handling. look at the i.d. plate and see what the wattage is for the appliance.
