Question about Pelonis HF-0019 OSCILLATING HEATER - OFF WHITE
My Pelonis HF-0034 turns off after a few seconds; won't restart. When unplugged for a period of time, it will repeat the same problem. Any idea what the problem is?
I've been through 4 or 5 of these (and similar models) with the same problem after anywhere from 3 months to 1 year of use. It appears to be an overheat condition. Unplugging for about 10 minutes resets the overheat protector, but it will overheat again after running a short time.
Sometimes you can extend the life by blowing out the heater with compressed air, especially around the electronics at the very top and the contact points at the top of the circular heating element.
I'm currently trying a Lasko 755320 from amazon.com -- cheaper, more features, better user interface, more heat, and it almost has to be more reliable than the pelonis.

We had one of these heaters also. Used for one year for short periods of time to heat an extra room. Went to plug in and nothing. My husband took the bottom plate off to see if there was a blown fuse and instead found a burnt wire, which had melted part of the plastic disk. If I were you, I would throw it away and get something else. This model is discontinued and I am sure for many reasons. I would look for a different manufacture also. I called customer service and after being told to bad, the man hung up on me. Great customer service. :(

I had the same problem with this pos a few seconds ago. Try shutting off the oscillation (red/orange OSC switch) and spin the unit incrementally on its base while trying to turn it on. It seems to be some problem with the oscillation pulling wires loose or something.as once I shut of the osc and spun it a little it lit back up and started working again. If I turn the osc on again the problem recurs once it spins far enough. It's probably a defect as the model was discontinued. Unfortunately mine and likely yours are out of warranty. Hope this helps, but you and I should probably just buy a new one instead of potentially burning the house down due to arcs from loose wiring.
