Soleus air HM1-10-32 Heater Not turning on

New heater and was working fine for a day. Suddenly stopped working. The heater is not powering on. The power light is not glowing. I have medium level knowledge about electrical circuits and hence opened the heater. What I saw inside was that the heater has a RT2A controller with leads such as 1 A 3 B, Voltage adjuster to adust the heating to low, high and eco and a Ball Tilt Switch. Everything looks fine. The voltage meter (power tester) has two leads. Unless I make contact at both AC lead points (similar to positive and negative points on a DC battery) the neon light doesnt glow.

A. I dont know where to check for the voltage
B. I dont know which one the following possibly can be problematic.
Thermostat / Power regulator / Voltage controller / Tilt Switch / Wiring.

Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

If you can hear a "click" when you turn the temperature knob, and the unit is plugged in, chances are the heating has failed.

If you have a multimeter, unplug the unit from the wall.

Put the meter on R x 1000 ohms, and put the meter probes on each of the plug blades. Rotate the temperature control through it's range. You should have just a few ohms when the control has clicked (you really don't care at this point), as you turn the temperature control to a hotter temperature. You should have no ohms when turning the other way (this all assumes you are in a typical room temperature environment.).

If no reading is obtained, either the element has failed, the temperature control has failed, the "tip-over" switch has failed, there is a burned terminal in the wiring, or sometimes a heat fuse fails.

If it's the element or temperature control, it's probably best just to buy a new heater. The other three are identify and replace.

SOLEUS KFHHP-22 - Heater doesn't blow air at all, warm or cold. Cooling works great but no heat.


Doesn't matter how hot it was when installed, there still should have been proper start up performed. That means running unit thru all cycles and checking charge. If it was installed this summer then installer should warranty service to return and complete install properly.

Vornado eh1-0020 was working fine and just suddenly stopped. No lights, no hum - just totally dead. Opened it, dusted, connections look ok. Anything else I can check or is it just


These heaters have a thermostatically controlled safety switch. It works very similar to your household iron for pressing clothes. On your iron, when the unit heats up the metal in the switch expands and "clicks" open stopping the power from heating up the element any more, then when it cools down it "clicks" closed and power is applied to the heating element again. Now here is the problem... in your heater, the elements are over-heating and causing the safety switch to "click" open stopping ALL power from going to the unit. IF you sit there long enough, you will eventually hear the "click" of the switch cooling down and then you will be able to turn it back on for a short time - then it will do it all over again. =( Unfortunately, this seems to be a common problem with this series of heater. There really is no "good" repair option as the price you will pay for someone to "fix" it, would probably be better spent going towards a new heater.

Heater works fine when its turned on but stops blowing heat after 3 mins.


mine just did the exact thing. I took it apart and blew it out with an air chuck and it works like new again. a couple of weeks ago i used a vaccum and it work a couple of days and then did it again. The squirrel cage and heat elements were filled with dust. It was not easy taking apart but now i know to only take the bottom off. thanks

Heater works fine but when you turn on Air Conditioner on it shuts off replaced the relay switch but still not working


MOST LIKELY NEEDS NEW BOARD , THERMOSTAT , TRANSFORMER , MAYBE FUSE ON THE BOARD AND
CHECK FOR WIRE BREAKS AND PROPERLY CONNECTED WIRES
AND IF IT STOPS THAT SUDDENLY THE COMPRESSSOR MAY
BE BAD SO CHECK FOR A GROUND OR TRIPPED BREAKER, AND
BURNT WIRES..CHECK FOR SIMPLEST 1ST. NARROW IT DOWN
AND MAKE SURE OUTSIDE UNIT IS RECEIVING POWER AND
CHECK CAPACITOR. LOOK AND CHECK FOR DISCONNECTED WIRES INSIDE AND OUT.

Heater won't start


Thanks for your question,
Sounds to me like you have a faulty fan in the unit, could be stuck, or might be a bad fan motor, try unplugging it first, find something to insert where the fan is and try spinning the blade, if its stuck or has alot of resistance, then you have a bad motor, if its free spinning, then try plugging it back in and see if it works, sometimes just by manually moving the motor shaft it frees it to work, if it still doesnt work, then you might look at replacing the fan motor, or replacing the unit, hope this helps ya,

Heater will not work, trips the reset button constantly. No help from manufacturer.


First of all I would make sure that you have it set up as instructed by the manufacturer guide or owners manual. If the plug is getting warm, replace the receptacle or try it in another outlet. Do not use an extension cord unless it is rated at the current that the unit is suppose to draw. If problem persist,contact Soleus International at contact@soleusair.com (888) 876-5387. They promise a 1 year warranty. http://www.soleusair.com/Consumer/index.htm If you are not satisfied with the unit and their warranty, contact the place you bought it from and try them. Report them to the BBB if still unsatisfied. Good luck. kstfas
