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.

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

I have a Pelonis oil-filled electric radiator heater that will not turn on even when plugged in to a good outlet. The switch seemed a little erratic but worked but when I bumped into it this morning i


Unplug it, then open it and inspect for a loose wiring connection. If that doesn't help, then jumper across the tip-over switch to see if the switch is bad.

Have you checked the outlet that the heater is plugged into, to be sure it's working. Unplug the heater and plug in a lamp. If the lamp doesn't turn on, than the problem is in the wall outlet or the circuit breaker has been tripped. Unplug the lamp, reset the circuit breaker and plug the lamp back in first. If the lamp works and doesn't trip the circuit breaker, unplug it and plug in the heater. If the heater trips it when you turn it on, there's an electrical problem in the heater.

Lowe's & Home Depot stock and sell this heater. See if either has one in stock. If they do, take it to the Customer Service Desk and they'll gladly make you a copy of the Owners Manual from the one in the box,

Hope this helps. Please let me know.

Pelonis HO-0128 makes strange noise


Nothing wrong with it. This is a normal sound made as the oil heats. As the heater heats up, the sounds should subside.

Pelonis model HO157C0110 will not turn on


Bypass the 3 way (hi, med, low) switch, unfortunately it'll always be in the high position when you do this. I have done this with one of my heaters and as long as the thermostat is working properly then it will work as it should on the high setting. I took the extra step of connecting the LED light to the bypass so I know when its on.

Just remember to turn it off you'll need to unplug it.
