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.

Vornadofan electrical wiring. Old fan runs strong but replaced the wiring and now need to check which wires are what...can not find on vornado website, not in manuals either.


Good luck there. Vornado is very vague and does not disclose any information. If it is a vintage vornado, you can type the model number into the search box, hit images and they have a few showing the wiring.

Does not turn on


This is a pretty common issue with these heaters. The switch can easily be replaced by opening the unit and swapping out the switch assembly. One switch I have found that works well and is reatively inexpensive (under $4) is the one from Radio Shack (P# 275-0020) which is a 16A 125VAC illuminated round rocker switch. Unlike the OEM one that drops in, the RS one is a panel type which you will have to screw into place. The whole procedure shouldn't take you more than 15min.
