It sounds like the space is too large for the BTU capacity output of the unit.

Did the unit ever heat the space?

Have you measured the temperature of the incoming air, vs the discharged air?

And finally, based on the Model number in the heading of this thread, this unit is cooling only, no heating (it's not a heat pump).

My thermostat is set on 68 degrees and it shows room temperature is 68, but the furnace still kickson, Honeywell said it has a 1 degree difference. so what's the problem then?


Yes there is a one degree tolerance, in fact my heater just kicked on and it is set to 67 and the inside temperature reads 67. It is also a Honeywell.

How do I Set the Thermostat Anticipator


If you have an older thermostat that has a heat anticipator in it then there are some things that you need to know about setting it and what it actually does.

First the function of the heat anticipator is to fake the thermostat into feeling the room temperature as hotter than it really is. The heat anticipator is actually a variable output heater inside your thermostat. The amount of heat that it actually produces is very, very small. This heat does, however, make a difference in how the room temperature feels to your thermostat.

If no extra heat is made inside the thermostat it will not react quickly enough to shut off the heating source. This will make the room “overshoot” the set point of the thermostat.
By heating the thermostat up very slightly it then shuts down the furnace or heat source before it actually reaches the temperature set point. This will allow the left over heat to go into the room and raise the temperature to the set point by the time it is all used up.

If you are experiencing wild temperature swings or the room temperatures are either not getting to the set point or going over the set point then the heat anticipator either is not adjusted right or it is burnt out and not working at all.

There are a couple of different types of heat anticipators. They will usually look like one of these.

If your heating is running too long then you will need to adjust the setting to a lower number. If you are not getting enough heat then go to a higher number. All you are changing when you do this is the amount of the heat coil you are using. Make small adjustments to the anticipator and then give it at least a half day before making more adjustments. Small changes can have a big effect if the heat anticipator is working correctly.

You also can set the anticipator by checking the current draw of the system. To do this you need to use an amp meter and measure the current draw of the heating unit when it is running. Then set the heat anticipator to the corresponding number of the current draw. This will at least get you a good starting point and some fine small adjustment can be made from there.

For more advanced digital thermostats there are cycle change features that do what this heat anticipator does in older thermostats. These often incorporate many things in determining the cycle length of the heating. These thermostats will not have a heat anticipator setting.

Like many things when it comes to your comfort, all people feel things a bit differently. You need to make the changes to the thermostat so that YOU feel comfortable. There is no right way it has to be done. Make it work for you and adjust the thermostat so that you are the most comfortable!

I do not have the manual to my fan forced heater (model HF-0034) and I am not sure how to work it. It keeps shutting off after a few seconds of heat. Then it will turn on again in 10 minutes and back off...


A lot of this, may be caused by the temperature setting and where the heater is placed. If the temperature is not set high enough, as opposed the ambient room temperature, it probably only turns ON briefly. Also, if the heater is placed near a heat source or in direct sun light, it's sensing the temperature from those sources, rather than the room air.

Try moving it to a another location and setting the temperature on the unit a bit higher.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know.

Can the internal thermostat be adjusted?


The Rinnai Model Number you listed is for a Direct Vent Heater, not a Vent-free or "Ductless Heater".

Whether it's Vent-free or Direct Vent, the thermostat can not be adjusted. If it's not producing enough heat, the air intake filter may need cleaning or there my be some object obstructing the heat output vent on the front of the heater at floor level. Also, not setting the thermostat high enough can also be a cause. And finally, the heater may not be properly sized (Btu Output) for the area you're trying to heat.

For more insight into the Model Number you listed, I have provided a link to the Owners Manual, that you can download and print for future reference. It will also provide you with what needs to be done as part of Routine Maintenance, that you can and need to perform.

Hope this helped to answer your question and provide further information.

My 80 series electric kenmore dyer runs but no heat


MY dryer has no heat
** UNPLUG a dryer before attempting ANY repairs. Lethal!
A dryer heater is controlled by the timer, a thermostat and a high-heat safety switch. The thermostat and safety switch are mounted on the housing around the heater.
Most likely - If the heater is blown, a visual inspection inside the heater housing will see a loose heater wire.
Next likely - Thermostat problems occur. I replace the thermostat and high-heat safety if either are suspect. Cheap, easy fix.9df7975.jpg
Least likely - Controller failure. This can be expensive ($80 - $400) so consider if you want to spend the money. A controller is actually fairly easy to change. Buy a new knob as you are likely to break it without experience and special tools.

Back up electric heater required.


A bit late for you probably Steve, but other browsers might be interested...

Micathermics are faster to warm up the room than other resistive heaters, but otherwise they're no more efficient - so it depends whether you feel that the fast warm up is worth the extra money that the micathermic would cost.

If your ceiling is well insulated (including over the wall plates at the top of the internal walls) then the large windows are very likely the reason that your underfloor heating can't get the heat high enough. Have you considered double glazing? 3M have a very cheap, disposable window insulation kit that you could put on for a cold season to see if it's worth putting in some more permanent double glazing (and in fact that kit will probably last 2 or 3 cold seasons if you just leave it up).

The heater power (kW) required to get that extra 2 degC depends on how well the room is insulated. Your best bet would be to find out how much kW your underfloor heating is putting out and how much degC it is warming up the room, then keep the same proportions to work out how much extra kW you need.

My appartment does not have cenral AC/heat, it has a GE cooling/heater unit in each room. You can set up low heat or high heat but it continues runing on until you manually stop it when is to hot. Is there...


the unit runs all the time because of the fan (ventilation motor)-but it is not working on cooling or heating all the time - The ventilation motor pushes the air from the room through the machine and when the termostat is reading that you set it up for cooler air or warm air it will turn on the air conditioning part or the heating part of the machine-it is very good system actually
