Question about Optimus H-4436 Electric Heater
Optimus H-4436 Electric Heater
i cannot locate a manual or figure out problem.
I have only had mine for 3 weeks when it did the same thing, I looked up and called Optimus Enterprizes @ 714 956-1300 they told me they warrenty it for 3 years. Send it back and they will repair or replace it. I am near them so I took it to their office @ 2201 E. Winston Rd. Anaheim, Calif. 92806. When I walked into the office the girl took my heater into the back and came out with a new one. No questions asked. I did not even have to show my Ebay paper work.
SO my solution is send it back.
you may call me and I can look up in my manual

I read another article and tried the "smack it" method that worked for some others, but alas no dice, no such luck for me. Upon removing the back round cover I noticed a section of the wiring which is covered by an insulation sleeve & screwed to the back of the heater with a little metal clip had a red wire going in one end and a white wire coming out the other, so I suspected something like a fuse was being hidden inside. Bingo! Its part number is "SF119U-1", made by SEFUSE rated 15Amps/125degC. You can get 5 of them for $5 on eBay, or they probably have them or an equivalent at Radio Shack. The not-so-fun part is that it's soldered, so if you don't already have the stuff needed to solder, you're in for a bit more expense to make this repair. If you're handy, you can avoid any future problems by installing a circuit breaker, which will allow you to reset it instead of replacing it. RadioShack has a 15Amp breaker (pt# R59-15A) made by NTE for $5, also available on eBay. It has spade terminals, so you could actually make the repair without soldering, but I like to overkill and crimp them on, AND solder them.
