Can't you exchange it at the store where you bought it and get a different one? It certainly shouldn't stop working after only two months of use.

SOURCE: Can someone please tell me what is the lowest temperature setting a Fahrenheat 3000 Watt Large Room Fan-Forced Wall Heater Model FZL3004 will turn on at ?

about the only way I can figure is to let the room get very cool and adjust the thermostat to its lowest setting. now turn on the unit. monitor the heat until the stat just opens. the thermostat bimetal will be closed and will open when the bimetal expands and opens its contacts. another way is to hitch up a chart recorder to measure temperature with its output connected to the heater. [too expensive for you or the DIY to accomplish]

ok, your unit must be propane. look on the back where the propane line feeds the nozzle. there should be a very small copper line with two spade connectors on it. this is your millivolt generator line. with a flame at the nozzle the generator makes a very small electrical current which feeds to the main valve and keeps it open. take a piece of wire and jumper these two spade connections together and try lighting the unit again. if it stays on, the hi limit is shot. you can get by with the connections jumped out, you just don't have the safety margin if it were connected. IF with the spade connections jumped out the unit still shuts off, the generator tube needs to be changed.

SOURCE: Rinnai freestanding Royale ETR flame fire (mains

I had the same problem with this unit and had the heater serviced which fixed the problem. The problem is caused by the pilot flame not being big enough to keep the thermocouple hot, so the heater thinks the flame is out and it turns the gas off! The thermocouple is effectively a switch that is on when hot and off when cold. The pilot flame is supposed to keep it hot, so its on and the main burner will get gas. When its off (ie cold) gas is blocked from the main burner for safety reasons! This manual is for a very similar heater: http://www.rinnaisales.co.nz/tradesmart/rinnai2/pdfs/service_info/171.pdf

You need to get at the pilot and clean it out!

The 5840 has a problem with dust getting on the heater element and turning itself off after 2 minutes running. HERE IS THE FIX. Unplug the unit from the AC outlet, Then using a can of dusting air ( the kind you use to clean a computer key board) aim the compressed air INTO the middle louver of the upper adjustable heater vent and blow out the dust that has gotten on the heater element. ( You are actually blowing into the unit, clearing off the lint/dust that has gotten on the backside of the heater element that you can not see without openning the entire case).You can see the front of the heater element inside the louvers, It's the shinny metal part that looks like a small radiator.It sits behind the middle louver. After blowing out the dust, shake the entire unit to allow the dust to settle to the bottom of the case. Using a vacum cleaner try to vacum out any dust from the LOWER FRONT intake. Once the dust has been blown OFF the heater element, the unit will work just as new and not shut itself down!

You're drawing more amps than your line is equipped for. Rather than modifying your electric, unplug something on the same line to reduce the current draw.

Heater shuts itself totaly off as soon as the room is warm


Difficult to guess what the problem might be due to the amount of electronics the unit has that could cause inconsistent or illogical functioning.

I noted one product review that said "if the room is too large the auto shutdown will engage".

I suggest you revisit the instruction manual and specifications before deciding whether to call a service engineer....

Not enought heat


I have the same heater and it works great in my bedroom (with a door). the room is about 12 x 14. For my living room and dining area I use 2 or 3 oscillating, ceramic, fan forced heaters spaced out.

As you say, logically...since heat rises, the heat comes off the top. Only 3 things that I can think of would make that heater not work: First, a factory defect (it doesn't heat period). Second, if you have it a room that is too large for that size heater. Third, if the room has no doors (such as a living room).

If you have a draft it can work to your advantage. By placing the heater in line with the draft it will actually accelerate the heat exchange process and distribute the heat faster for you.
