Taking off the white grill to clean the inside (wipe dust off)

Does anyone have the m and/or does the manual give you instruction how to take the white grill off?  I lost my manual.  I had other try to take off and have the same problem.  I can't believe customer is having this same problem.  I also saw this at Costco but the foot of the base looked dark gray, I wonder they upgrade to fix this problem.  Does anyone have the manual and can you please sran and e-mail to me and/or fax to me at 610 330-2265.  Thank you everyone for your support.

Remove the batteries, on the back.

You may remove the kerosene left over, by using your filling pump and transferring it, to the approved container, you use when buying Kerosene.

First, remove the wire handle. Pull gently outwards with the wire handle horizontally.

Second, lift one side of surrounding grill, until the top and bottom sides come off. Do the same on the opposite side.

Third, remove the top cover, by pulling upward.

fourth, unscrew the two side screws, located on the lower part of the cylindrical shape, that was surrounded by the wire grill, that was just removed.

Fifth, Remove the front know, by pullung outward.

Sixth, remove the cover and note that the balancing weight will come off. Very easy to reinstall.

Seventh, Remove four nuts, on the outer space of the wick and cover assembly.

Eight, Remove the wick by pulling downwards and nothing that there are two pins. When reassembling with new wicker, assure that the pins in the new wicker fit the hole openings, properly.

Installing follow the reverse of the above noted points. The whole work should not take more than 20 minutes.

Tools required are: flat screw driver, need nose pliers.

Be a little patient.

Call me at 610.217.8133 . Please note that I have the same model and have changed wicks, as per instructed by mfgr.. If you want a manual, I will send a copy. prepaid by all mayor credit cards, in the amount of $10.00.

Good luck.

I would definitly try to give your heater a through cleaning before before giving up on it. Remove screws that hold back cover on and remove cover. There shoulb be a fiter directly behind it,remove it and give it a through cleaning. I don't know on the new ones if the filter is made of foam material,the older ones like mine are.It is safe to wash them in warm water and a little dish soap. Rinse fully and pat dry. Clean any lint,hair,dust or any other foreign material from fan motor. Blow it out with compressed air if you can. You can use a tooth brush to clean around motor shaft and air ports on motor. You can use a couple of drops of fine grade machine oil on motor shaft,such as 3 in 1 oil or WD-40. Wipe off excess. Lightly brush heating elements and reassemble. I hope this works for you.

How do we clean the inside of the dish?


This is from Presto

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.

Portable Heater keeps turning off


I just fixed my Stanley Lasko 675900 FOR GOOD and would like to tell the world how to fix it!


1. Remove the front plastic grill. The bolts are torx heads with a center pin. You may be able to find a torx head driver with the center pin but I improvised. I Used a dremel tool with a small rounded diamond bit to grind the center pins out of each screw so I can use a standard torx head driver on the screws.
2. Remove the heating element. These should be Phillips screws.
3. Blow out the dust from the back side of the heating element. (be careful with the fragile fins)
4. put it all back together and it should work just fine.
5. (optional at your own risk!) I believe the small gadget attached to the top of the heating element with the white wire is the limiter. You can use pliers to slide the unit out of the element and either move the unit further toward the center area, or cut the device out completely with wire cutters and then splice it back together. If you do this REMEMBER TO CLEAN THE BACK OF TH HEATING ELEMENT EVERY MONTH TO PREVENT A DUST FIRE!

I hope this work for you and good luck!

Rinnai Convector 404


Hi pinkinfinite,

The 404 is a great heater. I am assuming it is a Natural Gas Heater. All it needs is a good blow out with compressed air. They tend to carbon up in the pilot light area. You will probably also find it is very dusty inside. Easiest way to clean the carbon out is to remove the hose at the heater and with compressed air blow through the fitting where you have removed the hose. Make sure you hold down the start button so the air can get through to the pilot light and jets. Don't connect the electricity for the fan when you do this.
To clean it out internally you only need to remove the front panelling. There are two screws holding the top panel (not to be confused with the side and top). The screws are located inside the bottom grill at the front. There are also screws for the bottom grill there which you will also need to remove and probably best to remove the bottom panel that house the front feet. It should expose all the inside workings of the heater except for the pilot light and jets etc. You should be able to see the fan - it is round and looks like a filter and sits behind the vent section. Make sure you give it a good blow out - it gets all dirt and dust around it. When you do it remove both the rear filters/covers. They are mesh. Blow the top one which is the larger metal one and make sure you blow inside where it fits over to remove the dust and dirt. Same with the other one which should be plastic with mesh. Once you do this put it all back together. Make sure all wires are connected and be wary with the compressed air as it may blow the connectors off from loose fitting parts. Once you get it all back together Test it and hopefully it should work. Hope this helps. I did one the same today that was having trouble starting and it now works like a new one.

Regards
Bryan

Heater keeps shutting off !!


I have model 5532, but I think they all have the same problem. There seems to be a safety device in the ceramic heater that turns off if it gets too hot. It "remembers" when this happens as well and will shut off until it is unplugged for 10-15 minutes.

This happens on even lightly used heaters if used in dusty conditions. Dust builds up behind the ceramic heater and the lack of flow causes it to overheat. The unit must be dismantled and the dust brushed/vacuumed out. The good news is that not only will the heater work again, but it will have better airflow too!

To do this, tech support and other people say to "clean the rear grill", but my rear was not dirty. The front grill had some dust that I vacuumed clean, but did not help. In my unit there are no filters before the air goes through the heater element. The problem is in the center of the heater. Taking out the internal fan (four screws on the sides of the squirrel fan box), I could see that the radiator was over half covered in dust. I cleaned that dust out using a shop vac and the problem went away.

Opening the heater was a little tricky, two of the screws were triangle head screws. Once inside, however, it is a simple proceedure to remove the fan. Of course, you should unplug the heater and wait a while before opening it up to make sure there are no electrical charges stored in the unit.

Cleaning the dish on my Presto space heater.


I pried the upper rim with needle nosed pliers --,just enough to get the grid off. After cleaning with Mister Bubbles, I popped the grid back in and bent the rim back down. I then took a hammer and
smoothed the rough edges. Looks almost like new!!
