It sounds like the unit is tripping the breaker because the breaker is not rated high enough to handle the heaters power usage! If its not that then it may very well be the thermostat needs replaced in unit!
Test at a friends house to see if its your system or the unit!

SOURCE: Torpedo heater runs for a minute or two then the breaker trips.

You can test the photocell by hooking up a ohm meter on thr rx1k scale. Photo cell should be out of the heater.Hold photocell up to a light bulb,with light on resistance of photocell should drop to 0 to 100 ohms.Holding finger over the photcell and blocking the light the resistance should go up to the maximum resistance

Stopped coming on. Checked breaker, CFI in b'room, etc. Took grill off, nothing apparently loose or disconnected. 18 months old. Any ideas to try b4 calling electrician? Jim @ 828-230-0077


This 120V / 12A heater *requires* the full capacity of a 15 amp circuit - which means it must be on its own 15 amp circuit and not added to any other 15 amp (outlet or lighting) circuit.

Double check for a circuit breaker in the tripped or off position (or blown fuse). Reset and turn on (or replace fuse) as needed. If circuit breakers and fuses look OK - it may be a faulty heater, thermostat, connection, etc.and calling an electrician might be the best and safest solution.

My Qmark electic heater keep tripping the breaker


You will need to provide additional diagnostic information. Most likely the breaker is defective. Warning: potential for injury is HIGH working on power electrical! Do not attempt if you do not have experience and training. Proper personal protective equipment and methods should be used. The running amps needs to be measured when the heater is turned on. Find the rating on the breaker and calculate 80% of this rating. The heater current should be less than this value. If the breaker is tripping when less than 80% is measured it is most likely defective. Measure all power legs on the heater. Also check the nameplate info on the heater Volts, Amps. Compare these values to the actual.

Dayton 100K btu kerosene salamander heater - been running fine until last night. Unit is about 15 yrs. old. Ran for about an hour , then tripped out. I reset it and it would run for 1 - 2 min. and trip...


On that motor there should be a thermal overload to shut motor off in the event that it gets to hot. There also should be a start capacitor and if it is getting weak that could account for the unit tripping the breaker if it is trying to draw to many amps on start up. I would start by replacing the capacitor with plan to install new motor soon.
You may be able to extend the life of your motor some by giving it and fan a good cleaning, Good luck and thank you.

How to ajust dayton 155000 btu torpedo heater when running smell like kerosen


You say: When running it smells like Kerosene--
That is what you are burning in it, right?

Is it smoking--- like there is a poor combustion mixture?
-- like maybe not enough air pressure?

There is a pressure adjustment for both-- Please check the manual for adjusting the pressures for your particular model.

Everstar portable ac 10000 btu


The everstar 10,000 BTU unit will require a dedicated 115 V 15 amp circuit. if there are other things pluged into outlets and running from the same breaker then the 15 amp breaker will trip. Or, these units also have a GFCI plug adapter. Be sure it has not been tripped due to an improperly grounded outlet, or wet location.
