How to clean ceramic panels of gas heater

Get It Serviced/investigated.Black soot is a sign of incomplete combustion which in turn leads to carbon monoxide production.Very dangerous.It should burn with a blue sharp flame not orange or yellow. As for cleaning ceramic radiants (i assume that's what they are) they can be cleaned very carefully with a soft brush such as a paint brush or vacuum cleaner.Be aware they are extremely delicate and once broken cannot be just stuck together but need replacing.

Heater bionaire bch9224-cn no heat

The Bionaire BCH9224-CN is a ceramic space heater, one of apparently 4 related units. The 9224 is the tallest in the family and I also have the shorter BCH9212-CN. They are electric so I have no idea what all this talk about 'gas', 'pilot light' and 'flame' is. My 9224 failed in a way that seems quite common with Bionaire space heaters in general, namely, first the smell of burning electrical insulation, then a snap or pop accompanied by a flash of light out the lower side, and then no more heat. It is possible that the original questioner had this happen but wasn't around to witness it. Now it is possible that the failure is in the electrical control board but in my case (and in fact I'm betting for many or most of the Bionaire failures) it was a wire running to the ceramic heating block (element) that fried at the connection to the ceramic element. I would say it is very unlikely the failures of the Bionaires are in the ceramic heater blocks themselves, and in fact the 9224 and the 9212 (and I assume many or most of the other Bionaires) actually have two ceramic blocks/elements fastened together, one being used for the 750 watt heating and both for the 1500 watt heating. The central wire running to the blocks must support enough current (about 12.5 amps) for both of the blocks, whereas the wires to the individual blocks need half that (about 6.25 amps). In my 9224 unit the weak spot was clearly where the central, common wire was connected to the spade-like connector that was crimped onto the central, common tab of the ceramic block pair. At first I thought I'd just toss the thing but then I opened it up, did the autopsy and repaired it by replacing the 3 wires from the circuit board to the ceramic blocks with 14 gauge wire, and made the connection of the wires to the three soft metal (tin or tin alloy?) tabs of the ceramic blocks by carefully drilling holes in the tabs and bolting eye, crimp-type wire connectors to the tabs using small screws. Oddly enough I opened up the smaller unit (the BCH9212-CN) and it has the same ceramic element pair but no indication of burnt wires.

I have a Lasko 5141 Ceramic Electric Heater, and when I turn it on, I smell burning and the heater makes a whining noise. I've tried vacuuming it, should I try again or is there another step I should take?

You have an excess amount of lint buildup inside the ceramic element, you need to take the unit apart to clean the element. The fan housing covers the backside of the element and blows the air forward, over a period of time lint builds up.

You need a qualified person to take it apart safely and clean it. It takes a Special Chinese Triangle Bit screwdriver to remove the 2 tamper proof screws from the back. Purchased mine at

Triangle Bits

These power bits have a 1/4" hex shank and are 2" long.

Which portable electric heater is better? Ceramic or Radiant?

This is probably a subjective answer-- but I will give you my opinion-- OK?-- and the reasons for why I say so--

First off: You get: 3,413 btu in a KW HR from electricity-- either way!

So-- Do you prefer to feel the radiant heat from radiant heat-- or from the ceramic heater?

Do you like the looks of the ceramic, versus the radiant?-- do you prefer the portability and the safety features of one over the other?

And what about cost?-- is there a big difference?

I would let features and safety help me in the decision making process--
But either way--
you only get 3,413 btu's of heat from every Kilowatt of electricity you buy--

And if you are trying to heat a house with that-- it can get mighty expensive! :-)

Light working but when the heater is turned on the breaker trips

The heating coil in a lot of this style heater is a springlike coil mounted in insulating holders. I am not sure about your particular heater but what has usually been the problem with these heaters is that the coil has broken and shorted to earth. Turn off power at the trip and remove the heating element cover and the electrical cover on the heater. If you can not see any physical damage put an ohm meter between the element and the earth screw in the electrical connection box. If the meter shows any continuity the element is faulty and needs to be replaced. Hope this is of some help.

Fan goes to slow speed when power cord is bent near unit.

This is a sign that the wire is possibly broken inside the insulation and would cause an amperage drop causing the fan to run slow. I suggest that you replace the cord with a cord of the same wire size and new plug. Myself I like safety factors so if the cord says it is #14awg go to #12awg and use a twenty amp rated plug be safe not sorry.

I have a Williams Ceramic Gas Wall Mounted Panel Heater, the pilot is on but the furnance is not working

Jump the two wires going to the thermostat, if it starts , you have either a bad thermostat or a broken thermostat wire. If it does not fire up, you will need to check for 24 volts AC going to the gas valve from the transformer. If you have voltage, you have a gas valve issue. If no voltage, check for a limit switch that may have overheated with an Ohm meter. If they all test good, replace the transformer.
