Question about Patton PUH9000-U Heater

1 Answer

Space heater will power up, but not start,

This patton space heater is relatively new, within a year and hardly used. The on indicator light will go on, but the fan and heat will not. now I know this isn't the best solution, but sometimes it will work after we shake it a bit, almost like something is loose or stuck. thanks so much for any help!

These fans have a safey feature (sensor) that shuts the heater off if it is tipped over. It sounds like this component is not functioning correctly - may be set wrong and will not allow the heater to turn on unless you shake it to reset the sensor. If it is still under warranty return heater, if not call Patton and ask for help.

Will the patton electric heater significantly raise my electric bill

1500 watts is 1.5 kilowatts. Run it for 1 hour and you have 1.5 kilowatt hours. My electricity costs .08 per kilowatt hour so, when I run my 1500 watt space heater, it costs me a whopping .12 per hour to operate. I can afford 12 cents per hour, compared to oil at $3.50 per gallon and a burner that burns up to 3 gallons per hour.

I have a Patton Heater ( Brand New ) that was given to me. when I plug the heater in it lights up but the heater or fan does not come on. This heater has never been used. What could be causeing this?

Try spraying a LITTLE WD-40 on the fan bearings, with the heater unplugged, of course. You may have to remove the case to get access. Before you spray, try to spin the fan with your finger. Spray then try again with the finger. I think this will do it. If you don't have WD-40 ... try sewing machine or other light house hold oil.

Nickel Chrome hard wire in coils for heater element are not worth stocking as new complete heaters are very inexpensive and as a qualified electrician must fit it, to replace the heater element is not cost effective.

I need the lighted switch on front of Patton milkhouse space heater model puh680-u but can't track down web sight to order.

MILKHOUSE HEATER "CAUTION LIGHT" SOLUTION: Before I explain, let me clear this myth up: this is NOT an issue with the pendulum safety switch (some mistake that for a "mercury" switch). To begin, unplug the heater. Open it up and clean it out. I mean, buy a can of non-chlorinated brake cleaner and squirt all of the contacts good. Below the fan there is a sensor mounted on the heater element box on the bottom. That goes bad and causes it to trip. While you are there, squirt the motor bushings good with the brake cleaner and dab a drop of synthetic motor oil (just a drop) on EACH of the two motor bushings. Personally, I rewired this and bypassed all of the safety features. You can bypass that sensor without soldering or cutting any wires. All you have to do is unscrew the wires from the holder and then unscrew the tiny nuts and tiny bolts. Then bolt the together at one end (note the position) and put it back in the holder and tighten the screw to hold it in. This method fixes the issue completely as it removes the sensor from the equation. In fact, I just did that on my third milkhouse heater and it has been running solid for the last 15 minutes. Use your modified heater with caution! Let the brake cleaner dry before you energize this device!

What is the lowest temperature I can maintain with this heater ? That is, I plan to use it in crawl space where water pump and pressure tank and copper pipes and water heater are located and in winter...

YOu are asking a question that cannot be properly answered without knowing more of the situation. If this crawl space is subject to large air drafts and there are air vents that allow openess to this area, then you cannot be sure of the results. Since it will be winter, the humidity build-up is not so much a factor and you should take steps to isolate this area from air movement. Then you can apply heat. You may want to make a temporary plywood barrier around this area so your heat stays confined, thereby using the minimal heat needed to keep the temp you want. The heater will most likely handle the job; you should get a thermometer and keep the space at 40 degrees farenheit or slightly higher. When the warm weather arrives, remember to open the air venting again.
