    First of all I have 2 Vornados. They are both model # EHI-0005 which I didn't see on your choice of model numbers. They were both rebilt in 2004 per a recall. I am having the "Fan shuts down, shortly after heater is turned on problem" on both of them. We have tried them both in different plugs and different rooms and still have the same problem. If there is nothing we can do to prevent this, we would be willing to send them to you for repair if the cost would be within reason.

    Thank you, Carol

Call 1-800-234-0604 - This is Vornado's consumer service line. This manufacturer is well known for great customer service, and they should be able to tell you if something is wrong with the unit. If so, and if the heater is under warranty, they will fix it or replace it for free. You won't even have to pay shipping to send the unit in.

The heater is turned on. All lights are on. The fan isn't running. No heat is coming out. It was working earlier in the day.


did it get set on its side, there is a saftey switch inside to kickout the heating element if its knocked over, unplug it, pick it up and turn it around at different angles, return upright, shake gently, plug in and see if it puts out heat

How to install programmable thermostat


If it is a wall furnace with a built-in thermostat(sounds like the 1 to 10 dial is the thermostat) into the control then you would need to buy an updated gas contol valve that will hook up to an external thermostat and a programmable thermostat. The old gas contol valve would need to be removed and the new one installed. Then the thermostat wires would connect to the gas control valve millivolt system. A heating company can perform this service for you and I highly recommend you have it professionaly installed if you are not experienced on this process. You could leave a gas leak or other hazardous situation if not installed correctly.

Lg window-type ac


Most little window units are mainly for 300-500 Square foot rooms.
Should be putting around 80-105 degrees top out of those little units, Make sure that your thermostat is set for heat rather then the normal setting of cooling (Turn more towards Heat) also if you have a fan setting you may want to try lowering the fan to low speed vs high fan, which should give you more heat.
Make sure the Filter is clean as well as the coils behind the filter or it will shut down the heaters quicker due to lack of air, shutting down your T-stat and bi-metals quicker.

Good luck!

Electric furnace/heater pump/fan unit won't shut off


There are dip switches on the main board.. When you remove the lower panel on the air handler there are instructions to where the dip switches should be for your units fan control. if the switches are in the correct configuration.. The Thermostat may be malfunctioning or not wired properly. and last.. and most expensive.. the motherboard may also be failing.

My Vornado TouchStone Vortex heat 500 Heater - temperature


After calling Vornado Corporation, they suggested that the room temperature monitor might be failing as it read 65 degrees no matter where you started the heater. I took the unit back to the store I purchased it from, and we unpacked another unit and found the same problem existed. Therefore, the product is not capable of heating a room properly and I will continue my search for a space heater to control the temperature in my upstairs office which does not have air ducts for heat.

If anyone has recommendations I would be interested in their comments.
Thank you.

Dayton 3E227A Heating Cycle


The sensor for the thermostat is probably going bad or has bad connections. It is (or thinks it is) heating up fast and therefore shuts of the heater.
