Have you checked the receptacle that the heater is plugged in to, to see if it's still working? You can do this by unplugging the heater and plugging a lamp into the receptacle and turning on the lamp. If that fails, then there's a circuit breaker tripped in your home's circuit breaker panel. Check that and if you find one, make sure nothing is plugged into the offending receptacle and reset the circuit breaker. Now, plug the heater back in. Does it work or does it trip the circuit breaker? If it trips the circuit breaker the heater has an electrical problem, that may or may not be able to be repaired.
Since you didn't mention what brand and model heater you have, there's not much more I can do to help you trouble shoot the problem.
Never the less, I hope this helps steer you in the right direction.
u probably have a lot on that breaker and on startup units always pull a lot more amps cause starting up is like when u start off in a car u have to push the pedal more to get up to speed once u get there u barely have to push the pedal at all so this is gonna be a problem look on the info plate and see what the amps are or it may say f.l.a. (full load amps)
If you flip the fan to on and it doesn't run then you may have a problem with the fan motor or possibly a capacitor if it has one. I'm not familiar with the Brant heaters. I usually work on Monitor and Toyostove heaters.
I had this problem once in an apartment I own. it was an EXTREMELY ease fix. my problem as that the set screws in the breakers were not tightened enough, and would cause heat to build up, and trip the breakers. so..... first try to tighten the set screws on your breakers.
yes, you did a good job. Sounds like you paralled them. Which is right buuuut what size are these heaters. Add the wattage of all of the heaters and divide by 120 and that is how much current you will be using. On a 20 amp breaker you can only pull 16 amps safely. I think you will be way over unless the heaters are 600 watts each. You are allowed 1800 watts on a 20 amp circuit.
