Honeywell HZ517 Electric Baseboard Heater not powering up

My two Honeywell HZ517 Electric Baseboard Heaters will not turn on and they stopped working at the same hour. Was this defect built into the product during manufacturing in China?

First.... did they work in the past?? if so... you may have a defective thermastat. if not, usually it is a incorrect wiring problem. wiring in two baseboard heaters to one thermastat can be tricky if you do not know what you are doing. baseboard heaters by design seldom go bad.... if wired correctly the problem could be a defective thermastat or safety limit switch.

SOURCE: Honeywell HZ517 Baseboard Heater

This troubleshooting approach may be sound, but you need a deep security star screwdriver to open the heater up. I have looked in specialty tool and electronics shops and no one has a screwdriver that gets in deep enough. You won't go anywhere without this screwdriver, so if anyone can suggest a source, that would be great.

How about a free replacement heater?

There has been a recall since 2002 on some Honeywell portable baseboard heaters. Check this link, or call Honeywell ASAP. The ON/OFF switch failed (with a burning plastic odor) on my HZ-514.

http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2002/CPSC-Honeywell-Consumer-Products-Announce-Recall-of-Moveable-Baseboard-Heaters/

"Consumers should stop using these heaters immediately, unplug them, and contact HCP at (800) 290-8495 between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. ET Monday through Sunday or log on to the company's website at www.honeywell.com to determine whether their heater is part of the recall."

I hope this is a solution for you, and you are safely warm again in the near future.http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2002/CPSC-Honeywell-Consumer-Products-Announce-Recall-of-Moveable-Baseboard-Heaters/ not-heating-up-could-problem-some-gwybjxudtwjfkyidrgix5fxs-4-0.jpg

I have a electric baseboard heater and when I turn the thermostat up, it heats for awhile and then the heater stops throwing heat but never reaches themperature. Changed thermostat and still the same...


you either have an overheat switch opening up prematurely or a bad connection that faults when it gets hot. Check all connections with the power off and try jumping out the safety switch to see if the heater stays on.

You can try to disassemble the heater and look for something wrong like a loose wire: in order to do so: Unplug the heater and let it cool completely before disassembling it. Remove the rear grille and the control knobs. Remove the front grille by unscrewing the fasteners on the back of the housing. Remove the front grille by lifting the control housing and pulling the front grille toward you. The motor, fan, and heating element are now accessible for testing and repair. Remove the thermostat from the control housing and disconnect the wires. Remove the heat control's mounting screws and clips to access and disconnect wires. Good luck
