Question about Honeywell HZ-510MP Ceramic Heater

2 Answers

Diagnosing a short cycling honeywell HZ-510 heater

I bought a used HZ-510. It seemed to work fine pre-purchase.
After getting it home, it cycles off and on.
On about 1 to 3 min and off 3 to 5 min.

I removed the cover to diagnose the problem. I cleaned the temperature sensor located right over the ceramic coils, it had a small amount of dust. The thermostat seems to operating properly as it calls for heat and stops calling when it is turned down or is satisfied.
The fan is operating, the blades are clean, the coils are clean. I see nothing that would indicate improper air flow.

The only thing that is throwing me is what apears to be a temperature sensing device on the thermostat knob itself.
With the pendulum type wighted cylinder that opens the contact.
It is getting hot to the touch, is there a desighned temperature it is supposed to reach and not exeed?

I understand that being purchased used and not being the original owner it may not be under warranty.

Any ideas as to what is the problem and where to get parts if needed?
By the way, I am a heating and air conditioning contractor in NC if that makes a difference. MY HONEYWELL HZ-510 PROBLEM DESCRIBED BY meBNme IS THE
SAME PROBLEM I HAVE. ANY SOLUTION YET? PLEASE LET ME
KNOW. THANKS. BOB

There is no "official" way to fix this problem, but I did find a solution. You have to open the case by removing the 6 security screws on the bottom, and pull the height and thermostat knob off (they just pull off easily). You will see on the underside of the thermostat switch, a dangling weight (the tilt sensor). It is attached to 3 sandwiched metal arms. The very bottom arm is designed to bend upward when it gets hot, and it lifts the contacts apart. If you bend that bottom arm downward just a little (don't go too far, or you'll lose the thermostat feature altogether) it will allow the arm to heat up to a more reasonable temperature before shutting the heat off. Just reassemble, and it should work!

Honeywell portable heater HCE322V manual


Honeywell has the manual for the HCE322V ceramic tower heater on the product page: http://www.honeywellstore.com/store/products/digital-ceramic-tower-heater-hce322v.htm . Click on the Manuals tab. The direct link to the manual is http://www.honeywellstore.com/store/images/pdf/HCE311-HCE322-HCE323-honeywell-heater-manual.pdf .

I hope this helps. Note: the manual covers a few different models. You should ignore any section about the HCE323; that model has a remote and a few other extras.

Thermostat set at 73degrees , turns on and off to frequently


Hello Jean Thomson,

There are several reasons air-conditioning could go on & off frequently.

Thermostats can be set with close degree function...

Assuming your temperature variances are of no importance
the THERMOSTAT can be adjusted to be less sensitive...

BUT BY FAR... the most common reason for rapid cycling
of the A/C are air leaks and poor insulation...

Your local UTILITY provider will likely have FREE (or very reasonable) thermal analysis - evaluation programs... wit supported contractor services to improve your INSULATION and reduce ENERGY CONSUMPTION.

Also you might need to consider that your A/C system is simply poorly engineered to keep your home at a comfortable temperature...

Again... there are SPECIALISTS who are capable of analyzing your existing structure... and recommending appropriate systems sizing to economically operate efficiently....

Nothing here for the uninformed noviciate... all highly technical.

Save money... Get a PROFESSIONAL ANALYSIS..

Hope this helps!!

Yes there is a one degree tolerance, in fact my heater just kicked on and it is set to 67 and the inside temperature reads 67. It is also a Honeywell.

My termost set to a/c, the fan auto, blow very well, but when I switch to heat and the fan auto, doesn't work, but if I put fan on work why?


the thermostat says to call for heat buildup in the work if its not cold enough the thermostat won't call for heat and I won't go on but when it gets cold and the thermostat set to the temperature you want or hire someone that doesn't cycle

Household steamer not heating at all


Well, first thing, just hook up service water and turn it on so the water heats up. Leave it long enough for water to get hot. If water doesn't get hot like should, then heating unit is malfunctioning. If it is getting hot after a while, you pull the handle trigger and water comes out, you have to wait long enough for the hot water to get to the head/trigger for it to go into the nozzles. If it was working ok before, and you were waiting for the water to heat, then then it should be working fine. Tell me what is happening if you wait for water to heat and get to the nozzles. I'm right here at my computer and we can get this thing going if the heater unit is good. Regards, Rigger.
