Question about Sunbeam 738-400 Heater
It has worked fine for 1 and a half months. I don't have the model # with me at the present time: however the model has a timer, several temperature settings (65, 70, 75, 80, 85), and it has an economy setting if we leave it on for extended periods. It is basically brand new. When it quit working, I plugged it in about 30 minutes later and it came on for about 30 seconds and then stopped working agaiin. It cost us about 50 dollars from Lowes and we don't have the receipt anymore (we kept it for about a month, then my wife threw it away). It is perfect for how we use it, but I am reluctant to buy another Sunbeam product. Can you give some advice? Signed, Tom
did this heater get knock over, sometimes the safety switch gets hung up inside, cheap bi-metal switchs that cycle the heating element burn, power supply, bad plug or recepticle, heck put a high amp relay in and a wall thermostat,it'll probably say made in china on the back

Have you tested the receptacle that the heater is/was plugged into, to make sure it's working and a circuit breaker hasn't been tripped?
If not, plug a lamp into the receptacle to see if it works. If it doesn't, check your home's circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker. If you find one, make sure there's nothing still plugged into the offending receptacle and reset the breaker. Then, plug the heater in and turn it on. Does it trip the breaker again? If it does, there's some type of short in the electrical system of the heater. If it doesn't trip the breaker, but still doesn't work, return it to the place of purchase for a replacement. However, you must have your Proof of Purchase Receipt to do this.
Hope this helps solve your problem.
