Hello Jim Hyde - Try pressing the reset button on the plug, if you haven't so already. If the unit continues to not heat up, contact a professional that works with your manufacturer to move forward accurately. Keep in mind that for some air conditioners the heating option is simply a supplement to help heat up a room but in most cases it will not completely heat up the entire room.
what is the yellow residue around heating element? my fridge just isnt working right and sometimes stops all together, the freezer worked until lastnight but fridge hasnt cooled right for a week or so.
what kind of heater is this a household unit or a window unit... could be numerous problems if the heat starts to work is the fan continuing to run? also may want to check for obstructions such as a dirty coil which would make the unit get to hot and a limit is shutting unit off... what kind of unit and brand?
i work on heating /air and all major appliances for over 17 years let me know
Not starting can be a door switch problem. Maybe when you removed the cover, something came unplugged. Flame suddenly stopping can be a sooted or dusty flame sensor. They do go bad, too. See if it can be bypassed for a test ONLY.
It sounds like the unit has lost its first stage of Heat (It uses the outside unit to bring heat in with freon) When the thermostat is put 3deg higher than room temp it uses Heat Pump and heat strips, this is probably the only time yours heats. Have it checked as you will pay a lot on next month's electric bill.
