Question about Vornado REH1-0001-01 VortexHeat Compact Heater

Vornado mystery component burned out!

I have a Vornado EH1-0012 type VH that suddenly stopped. With some quick testing I found that a "mystery component" has burned out. I can't tell if it is a resistor or diode or ???, but it is what connects the power to the primary heating coil. There are a couple numbers left on the burned component, but not enough to let me figure out what it is and what the replacement should be.

Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Thanks!

    Well I figured it out myself...turns out the small "rocket shaped" component is a Microtemp thermal protection fuse. I can't find an exact replacement, but Radio Shack has one that is close enough for under $2, so off I go!

Don't solder it in!
Use crimps.

SOURCE: I need a new on/off switch

I have the same problem with a VH Vornado heater
No need to change switch.
The switch has to sets of contacts, but uses only one. This one is burnt out

Just reconnect the black cable (hot) to the opposite free switch connector.
Then interchange the white (resistance) with the brown cable (ground for switch light)

You may have to turn around the switch because the heater will turn on on the "OFF" position

Check your cables with tester, to avoid any short circuit.

SOURCE: I have a Vornado TVH600.

Sounds like you got a lemon. Contact Vornado Customer Service - the TVH600 comes with a 5 year warranty that covers all costs associated with replacing or repairing the heater. They even pay for shipping costs as long as the unit is still under warranty. Just give the rep the serial number on the bottom of your product. The number is 1-800-234-0604. When you call, you'll actually get a real person, and the support team is very pleasant and helpful. Good luck with your heater!

SOURCE: vornado eh1-0020 was working fine and just suddenly stopped. No lights, no hum - just totally dead. Opened it, dusted, connections look ok. Anything else I can check or is it just

These heaters have a thermostatically controlled safety switch. It works very similar to your household iron for pressing clothes. On your iron, when the unit heats up the metal in the switch expands and "clicks" open stopping the power from heating up the element any more, then when it cools down it "clicks" closed and power is applied to the heating element again. Now here is the problem... in your heater, the elements are over-heating and causing the safety switch to "click" open stopping ALL power from going to the unit. IF you sit there long enough, you will eventually hear the "click" of the switch cooling down and then you will be able to turn it back on for a short time - then it will do it all over again. =( Unfortunately, this seems to be a common problem with this series of heater. There really is no "good" repair option as the price you will pay for someone to "fix" it, would probably be better spent going towards a new heater.

A common question it seems: Maytag Neptune ME9700AZW Electric Dryer stopped heating suddenly; no supply problems, doesn't appear to have a fuse and Heater Elements according to the parts list are


Someone will need to take a good electrical tester and, unplugging one item at a time, run separate tests on each of the items that could be the problem.
Only the heating element, or a burned or broken wire will be visible to the naked eye.
( Even the heating element can occasionally not show the problem)
The rest of the testing is on components that cannot be taken apart.
Oh, yes. dryer fuses sometimes look nothing like any fuse you have ever seen before.
Some are 2 inches long, 3/4 inch wide, and show nothing to tell you it is burned out.
Be blessed.

Suddenly my screen becomes only green


On a CRT monitor the usual cause is failure in the picture tube electron gun dealing with the green electron gun. The kathold is shorting out to the first control grid.

There are possible circuit problems that can also cause this, dealing with the driver components to the picture, but this is very rare compared to picture tube failure.

An experienced tech with CRT type monitor service can quickly diagnose the cause of the failure. I can tell you in advance a CRT monitor would be very expensive to service if parts can still be found for it.
