Defective Patton PUH680

I purchased a Patton Heater PUH682. We used it less than a week and it stopped working. I didn't save the box or receipt, so I could not return it. I feel cheated, as I didn't receive a good product. It appears the coil got too hot and broke inside the unit. Being a new heater, I believe the coil was defective or this would not have happened so soon, being new. I would like to send this one back an receive a new one, as I paid for the heater I expected to keep working. I hope someone will get back with me on this.

How did you pay for the heater? Cash, credit card, or check? What store did you buy it from?

If you paid by credit card, some stores can look the purchase up. Some stores will accept returns for an equal exchange based on lookup of the charge.
If by check, you can get a copy of the canceled check from your bank. Take the copy with the heater to the store that you bought it, and they will likely allow an exchange.

If you paid by cash, you can contact the manufacturer, and he will ask you for the date code or serial number of the unit (he will tell you where to look). You can then discuss with them how to proceed to have the unit repaired or replaced.

Where and how do I register my reliance hot water heater


Save receipt for warranty purpose.
Without receipt, the warranty is based on date of manufacture which can be several months, or 1-2-3 years before actual installation.
With reliance, first two digits of serial number are date of manufacture. Second two digits are week of the year.
Registration at following link using serial number located on label on side of tank:

Where can I find replacement thermostat/s for the PUH682 electric heater/s.


I would think the contacts are burning out on the line voltage thermostats. The contact areas have been reduced over the years so they last just past the warranty period. If it were mine, I'd locate a line voltage baseboard heater thermostat and adapt the control to operate the heater elements. Much higher amp rating and built more substantially.

These have poor quality safety parts that fail in about 1 season or less, the failure rate for these little cheaper units is high, go Honeywell next time!

I received the Patton Electric Heater model number PUH682 for a Christmas gift. It worked fine for about one week then just about 3 days ago, when I went to unplug it, the plug and cord were just red...


I saw your post and I encourage you to report your problem to The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. I called them to report the problem. The number to the company (Patton) is 763 444 8567. The number to The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is 1-800-638-2772. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission will take your report and if you know others that have this product and they have experienced the same thing encourage them to call and report it. The heater I had melted unto a ultility extention cord and was smoldering. It could have cause serious injury or damages to me and my family.

If this product could have injured you as well. The are a public hazard and need to be recalled.

CAN THIS HEATER CAUSE AFIRE AND IS THIS HEATER ON RECALL PATTON PUH680-U


I do not know if this heater is on any product recall but we have used patton heaters for years and pretty much have had good luck with them. However there is a fire hazard present if you set or store combustibles to close to the front.Tip over switches don't always work and I would never recommend using a heater of this type in a unsupervised area.I hope this is of some help to you. Thank you and happy holidays.
