Question about Fahrenheat LFP6152 Halogen Baseboard Heater
Greetings, I have the same problem. There is a one inch square diode with 5-prong connections held on the control end by a screw on the unit's back. That's where my burning smell and very hot area were located. Call Carrol Apl. 1-800-654-3545. They have the diode for $9 + $9.95 postage. Matt who works there knows the part. Problem must be widespread - China Mfr.= Garbage products and No US Jobs.

Last time i came across this the limit safety had melted. It is located in the panel right side of the unit. UNPLUG POWER before taking anything apart. You can contact the manufacturer to try to get parts to replace, do not use this heater until it is repaired it can cause a fire

I also had this diode stop working so that both lights stayed on and had the strong burning plastic smell. After searching many places online, I found many places carrying the exact same part. Here's a website containing the specs for the diode http://www.futurlec.com/Diodes/MB2510.shtml, and the site (www.futurlec.com) had the part "MB 2510" for 2.60 with $4.00 shipping. I bought two.
