I would guess that the element is burned out. As these are a relatively inexpensive item I would not waste a lot of time or effort trying to repair it. I hope this helps you. Thanks

First if you do not have previous electrical experience with heaters refer to an expert otherwise you will spoil the unit more. The problem with your unit is the thermostat it is either not set for your temperature or it is faulty. The thermostat is that component of your unit which regulates if the unit bring out heat or cold. When the thermostat does not function as it should the unit regardless of the wattage. Mostly when a thermostat is faulty the unit is more like not on because the thermostat which is responsible for its functioning is partly out of order.
Best get an expert to check the thermostat connections or replace it completely.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

While the original poster's unit may have been defective/damaged, even a properly-working Marvin 5460 can become noisy over time, as the fan will tend to become loose just through normal wear. My own heater developed an annoying fan rattle after 3+ years of fairly heavy winter use (4-5 months per year); eventually it was loud enough to be distracting.

Anyone else facing the same problem will be happy to know that Marvin designed these models very well. A loose/rattling fan can easily be fixed in seconds using only a screwdriver, without even opening the heater. (You should unplug it and let it cool first, of course, just to be safe.)

On the underside of the heater casing, pretty much dead-center, are a pair of screws side-by-side, about two inches apart. On my unit, they're a brassy color that clearly sets them apart from the case screws (which are silver). Those are the screws that secure the fan to the mounting bracket inside the heater. Simply hand-tighten both firmly, and that should eliminate any rattling or noise caused by a loose fan!

Marvin Quartz heater element


Very simple to install the replacement element. Insert one end of the element into the bottom receptacle on either side, press the element down (it's spring-loaded), then slide the top of the element into the center opening of the top receptacle, push to appropriate side (the side of receptacle, same as the bottom), then release. Then do the same with the other element (if both are out).

Hi Heaterman,

All reddy should have a label on the heater with their phone contact information. Isuggest calling them and asking them to send you all documentation on your heater.
