Question about Sylvania Electric Stove Heater, Black Model S211 - Quality Craft Home Decor
The heater squeals from the time you start the flames since you have to turn them on first. it makes a squealing/rubbing sound. even after the thermostat kicks off it still makes noise. I need help since I bought this as a Christmas gift.
I had the same problem. If you remove the top row of screws on the backside of the unit, you'll see that the flame effect is created by a series of reflectors attached to a rod. Turning on the unit activates a motor that turns the rod. You'll see that the other end of the rod is just a loose end that is allowed to turn inside a plastic holder. Unfortunately, the rod rubbing against the plastic as it turns causes the annoying squealing sound. I solved the problem by wrapping a small amount of paper towel around the rod, pushing the PT into place inside that plastic rod-holder, and spraying it with a little bit of WD-40. I had to remove the entire back panel to get proper access. No more squealing noise (for now)! Time will tell if I need to reapply the WD-40.
