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.

I received the Patton Electric Heater model number PUH682 for a Christmas gift. It worked fine for about one week then just about 3 days ago, when I went to unplug it, the plug and cord were just red...


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.

Any idea where I can get replacement metal fan blades for a Patton floor fan?


I'm not all up on Patton Model#s, but this is an older unit, correct? You may try contacting Patton (Owned by Holmes now so you may have to go through them)

If they cannot help you, try www.dtvintagefans.org There's collectors there that may have parts fans that they may be willing to sell a blade.

Alternatively, you may try Grainger, as they sell an assortment of blades. You will need to match a blade to your motor though, which should be fairly easy as the Patton fans use a common McMillan motor which most attic fans also use.

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.

Caught fire


>Should a microwave be obsolete after 5 years?

Not at all. You can just order a new rack support (or a whole set of them).

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Quite often this arcing is due to grease or food particles stuck between the holder and the hole it goes into, etc.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
