Pelonis HF-0034 turned off 10 sec after starting; won't restart

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?
Thanks.

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.

"and after being told to bad, the man hung up on me"

You were told to bad? How does one "bad", exactly? I didn't know that was a verb.

Switch it off and call a gas technician. That may be Carbon Monoxide also known as 'The Silent Kille**r'. It could also be an indication of not enough air being burnt with the gas.

Honeywell portable heater HCE322V manual


Honeywell has the manual for the HCE322V ceramic tower heater on the product page: http://www.honeywellstore.com/store/products/digital-ceramic-tower-heater-hce322v.htm . Click on the Manuals tab. The direct link to the manual is http://www.honeywellstore.com/store/images/pdf/HCE311-HCE322-HCE323-honeywell-heater-manual.pdf .

I hope this helps. Note: the manual covers a few different models. You should ignore any section about the HCE323; that model has a remote and a few other extras.

How do I fix my electric heater


  • sounds like the sensor or bulb that tells it to start the blower is defective/ im not familiar with your unit but this seems the most logical answer most furnace will not turn the blower on right away usually 90 seconds after the ignition but will also run longer to exhume any dangerous carbon monoxide.

Is it cost effective to replace draft inducer blower on 22 year old furnace?


Depends on the cost to repair. Probably a 22 year old furnace is not very efficient also. Take every thing into consideration.
If it still works it may work for a while but you don't want a break down in the middle of winter.

How do I remove the "Keepers" from the media of an Ultra Cool CP70? I'm meeting resistance trying to remove them & am concerned that using force will break them. I don't know if they pop off under pressure...


I used a Mac Tools UT018 blind panel removal tool for auto upholstery panel removal. similar items may be found at your local auto parts store. I slipped the tool under the round washer up against the media and simply pulled. It removes the washer without damaging the locking pin or the media so everything can be reused. Simply blow out the media panel from the inside to clean any dust or pet hair from the media. Reinstall.
