Question about Honeywell Surround HZ2200 / HZ2204 / HZ2205 Compact Heater

Open Question

Honeywell Surround I bought my Honeywell Heater about two months ago. I only saw good reviews about this heater. The problem is that it keeps cutting off. At first it was once a day, now it's within two minutes of turning it on. After looking up in Tech Support, it seems that a lot of people are having the same trouble. One person said that you would replace the heater. I have a problem with that. I feel that the new heater will probably do the same thing. I really liked the heater at first, now I'm really frustrated. What do I do??? Thank you for your time. Lisa Gardner

A link to an Adobe (Acrobat) Reader format (.pdf) owner's manual for Honeywell® (Mini Tower) SURROUND HEAT™ HEATER FAN Models HZ-2200 (charcoal) and HZ-2204 (white) is here.

Some text from the manual:

SET UP
• The Surround Heat™ Heater is designed to
disperse heat in either a 360° range or in one direction only.
• To select the desired heating mode, slide the Direction Control switch, located
on the top of the heater, to the position of your choice:
– to the right (full circle) for 360° Heating
– to the left (half circle) for forward only heating (One Direction
Heating)

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Select the appropriate heat dispersion mode. (See
Set-Up instructions.)
• With the Power knob in the OFF position, plug the
heater into a polarized 120V outlet.
• Turn the Thermostat control fully clockwise to the
HIGH setting.
• Turn the heater on using the Child Resistant switch
(Power knob). To operate the switch, push down
the two sides of the Power knob while turning it
clockwise to the desired position. The power
light will illuminate. The Child Resistant switch helps
ensure that the heater can not be turned on accidentally.
• When the room reaches a comfortable temperature, slowly turn the Thermostat
control counter-clockwise until the heater goes off. This is the point at which the
Thermostat setting equals the room temperature. At this setting, the Thermostat
will automatically turn the heater on and off to maintain this selected temperature.
• Push down and turn the Power knob to OFF and unplug the heater when you
are finished using it.

SOURCE: Dy/night heater turns on for 10 sec then and off, over and over

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

If I understand your concern, it is that the heater switches itself on for 10 seconds and then switches itself automatically off. A couple of ideas of you may want to explore/check:

  1. the built-in protection system detects an internal fault and to prevent any further damage switches itself off;
  2. the faults could be:
  • open heating element (assuming it is electrical);
  • blower not turning;
  • open limit switch. The limit switch is an inline cutoff to the heater that automatically opens up when the heater exceeds a pre-determined temperature independent of the settings in the thermostat. This is like a thermal fuse once gone bad will remain open;
  • whereas a thermostatic switch will turn on if temperature is below its threshold and turn off if the temperature is above. It is basically an on/off switch.
Often the limit switch would look like the image below.

To be able to provide a more detailed information/assistance, pls verify & post back the model number of the Day Night Heater. Model 8ou-19 does not turn up anything. Or perhaps you can share the website you were referring to.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

SOURCE: Honeywell heater turns off after 3 min. Never comes back on

It sounds like the temperature sensor has either failed or come loose and is sitting too close to the heating coil. Alternatively, the level-sensor, which shuts off the heater when it is tilted, may be malfunctioning.
If the heater is not sitting level, it will also shut itself off.
In any case, if it is under warranty, return to the manufacturer. If it isn't, a local appliance repair shop should be able to isolate the problem.

SOURCE: HZ-725 honeywell cooltouch heater..Lights on but no heat

The screws are "Tamper-Proof Torx" head, it takes a special T15H tool bit to remove the screws. I just disassembled one of these non-working units and the problem with this unit is a open diode on the heater element board. Not sure the purpose of the diode, but no voltage is going through it. I doubt if parts are available as I see no link for parts on the www.kaz.com website. This unit has been quite hot inside as the plastic mounting peg for the heater element board is melted near the diode area.

SOURCE: honeywell surround heater shuts off

Had the same problem. The cause: The coils have too much dust on them.
Soultion: Take the bottom of the base off and clean/vacuum. While the base is off, you also have access to the interior of the heater. Remove the 2 screws on the bottom front, then the 2 on the bottom back. The plastic panels will come off and you'll have access to all internal areas. Just clean thoroughly and you should be good to go. You wouldn't realize it, but even with a spotless house, the heater will **** any small particle of dust.

Problem with used honeywell surround HZZ 2200. run for a minute then shut off.

Wont heat up


I have an HZ519 that stopped working as well. I found that the anti tip switch is in fact a mechanical weight type if switch and not a mercury switch. The problem I'm having is that the plastic stud that the anti tip switch mounts to is melting causing the switch to come loose and fall to the bottom of the heater and therefore stop working properly depending upon the position the switch is in when it lands.
Does anyone know if Honeywell has a retrofit for this problem?
Thank you,
Randy
