Question about Heating & Cooling
My Sunbeam portable heaters won't turn on. I have 3 & they have a test/reset on the plug. I believe the test/reset buttons are faulty. None of them work.

you probably need to adjust the primary air mixture. There should be shutters on the front of the burner assy. If this does not correct the problem you may have dirty burners themselves. you could remove the burners and drag a wire brush across them to clean. but do not drills the openings unless you use a r&m bit

There is a flame sensor inside the burner unit. The sensor is like a photo cell that must see the light of the flame or it will tell the burner control to stop the power. You need to see if there is a soot film on the lense of the sensor and make sure the sensor is aimed straight. If the sensor is clean and aimed straight (and the problem persists) then there may be a clogged nozzle that is giving a poor flame and the sensor does not see a good flame therefore shuts down the unit. If the nozzle is at fault, then you for sure need to replace the oil filter. New nozzles are $4-8 and the size & spray angle is stamped on the nozzle. If there is still a problem, then you need to see if the pump is giving approx. 100psi pressure, then finally (the last step) would be to replace the burner control $60. Goodluck< Macgivor

This could be a few different problems, It could be flame sensing issues or blower issues, But if the flame is on for around three mins then it sounds like it is over heating. Check and make sure that your filters are clean. Also check the blower wheel for excess of dirt build up in the blades. If you are getting inadequate air flow then you would get this problem. When you reset the breaker you are just reseting the faults on the main board. When the problem happened there will be a led flashing on the mainboard. If there is a little window in the furnace than you can count the amount of flashes and it will give you are trouble shooting code. You might have to jimmy the door latch if there is no window to see it. Just be careful when you jimmy the door latch because the blower will start up and you dont want your figures in there at that time. If it is not dirty then there might be some other issues. The code would help out to determine the problem.
