Where can I find replacement thermostat/s for the PUH682 electric heater/s.


I would think the contacts are burning out on the line voltage thermostats. The contact areas have been reduced over the years so they last just past the warranty period. If it were mine, I'd locate a line voltage baseboard heater thermostat and adapt the control to operate the heater elements. Much higher amp rating and built more substantially.

Has the patton 682 been recalled? I am trying to decide between the 680 and 682 as I'd like to purchase one or the other. However, i just noticed on the internet that 682 may have been recalled. Is that...


Depending on the age of your heater, there were actually two recalls. One in 1985 and the most recent in December of last year.

This a link to the 1985 recall http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml84/84025.html

This is the link to the most recent http://thestir.cafemom.com/home_garden/113974/huge_walmart_heater_recall_over This one list a number you can call for further information.

Hope this helps.

Yes, there is/was a recall on some Patton Heaters, but I don't recall if your model # is one of them. For more info search Google for Patton Heater Recall Notice and you'll find the correct site.

I need two more rubber pegs for the base of my Patton heater. It only came with two. How can I get 2 more?


Almost every manufacturer will supply free parts for new equipment that is missing them.
Call them and let them know and I'm sure they will mail them to you.

I saw your post and I encourage you to report your problem to The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. I called them to report the problem. The number to the company (Patton) is 763 444 8567. The number to The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is 1-800-638-2772. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission will take your report and if you know others that have this product and they have experienced the same thing encourage them to call and report it. The heater I had melted unto a ultility extention cord and was smoldering. It could have cause serious injury or damages to me and my family.

If this product could have injured you as well. The are a public hazard and need to be recalled.

Under the main black knob is a bi-metal switch which shuts down the heat at various temps depending on your setting. Their is no timer.

Defective Patton PUH680


How did you pay for the heater? Cash, credit card, or check? What store did you buy it from?

If you paid by credit card, some stores can look the purchase up. Some stores will accept returns for an equal exchange based on lookup of the charge.
If by check, you can get a copy of the canceled check from your bank. Take the copy with the heater to the store that you bought it, and they will likely allow an exchange.

If you paid by cash, you can contact the manufacturer, and he will ask you for the date code or serial number of the unit (he will tell you where to look). You can then discuss with them how to proceed to have the unit repaired or replaced.
