My electric fireplace displays that same way. if you still have your remote for the heater, it may be call a zone heater, the red button is off, then heat, then lo, med, hi, then timer.


may I suggest going to a rental place like buddy's and ask questions on the heater. good luck.

Furnace transformer/fan-relay wiring to fan-motor


All you need is 2 fan speeds, 1 for cool and 1 for heat. Leave the low speed disconnected. Normally we have high speed for cooling, and med. or low for heat. So either speed connected to the heating circuit is fine.

Im on my 2nd big buddy and both of them the fan has gone out, the first on went in a week, and this one last a couple of months.


fans
1. oil the bearings,sae 30 or wd40 for places you cant get into.
dont take fan motor apart unelse you realy have to.

dont let your fan motor bearings get worn egg shaped from lack of oil.
2. make sure fan blades not hitting or scraping fan housing and fan blades are securely fastened to fan motor shaft.


3.mr heater fan motor is 12 volts DC , so it may have a segmated comutator and brushes.


I dont know because i have not yet needed to take my mr heater
fan motor apart but i have worked on hundereds of ac fan motors
in the past 65 years.
4. keep fan motors from getting wet. they hate water.
5. keep fans clean, they dont like foriegn materials.


Your specific problem: first fan 2 weeks,second fan 2 months.


how much you use them, are you wearing the brushes down?
Getting fan motor wet? foreign material getting pulled into fan or fan motor? off/on switch work ok. batterys good,battery contacts ok? fan transformer 110 vac to 12 vdc good? fan bearings oiled?
need more info to diagnose properly.
all of the above needs to be checked out to tell whats happened.
fan & fan motor needs to be inspected.

I have a ge electric skillet but it doesnt say what the degrees are to cook can you help


If you're not looking specifically for temp to cook specific food items, rather what lo, med low, med etc mean . . . from the packing insert lo is 185 degrees, med low is 225 degrees, med is 300 degrees, med hi is 375 degrees and hi is 415 degrees. I just purchased this item yesterday.

Low does not work, medium and high do


You probably cant fix it, this sounds like a multispeed blower with hi/medium/lo settings. You
can either replace the motor or connect one of the
working speeds to low/med or low/hi. or bump med to low and high to medium.

Heater blower works intermitantly


If you have access to a DC voltmeter; try this:
Check for voltage on each of the heater resistor terminals, when it is unplugged, key in the on position. With the heater switch on low, you should have 3 volts DC, on lo-med, 6 VDC, hi-med, 9 VDC and on hi, 12 vdc. It looks to me like you might have a bad heater switrch, if the voltages do not match exactly what is posted above, or vary when you slightly manipulate the switch, the switch contacts are bad. Hope this helps. If not, please repost for additinal info.

Fahrenheat baseboard heater knobs


go to a radio shack to find replacement knobs. get something called a "bar knob." this has a set screw which holds the knob on the thermo shaft. use a marker and print lo med high and off on the unit or use a brother p touch label maker.
