Question about Cozy Enclosed Front Console Heater 70,000 btuh Natural Gas

1 Answer

I can't turn my cozy heater on - it has a small button in the back and I checked it out - there's zero ohms across the two wires - shouldn't there be? I am supposed to turn it on by holding down a gas-valve button turned to the "pilot" position while I repeatedly press an "ignitor" button on top. But while I press this gas-valve button, I don't even hear or smell any gas.

Sounds like the thermostat is either defective or has a bad connection. If you are familiar with using a multimeter (volt-ohm-current meter), it would be the device to use to trouble-shoot this problem. MAKE SURE THE HEATER IS UNPLUGGED!!!

With the meter set on Ohms, and the heater set on auto, set the heater to its lowest temperature setting. You want to see no resistance (close to zeor Ohms) when check across the thermostat (the temperature knob mounts on it). If you see high or infinite resistance, the thermostat's open and therefore defective. If the thermostat checks out OK, continue checking with the meter. You should have about zero Ohms between the hot pin on the power plug (the narrower one in N. America) and the heater motor lead. If it's open (high or infinite resistance), keep the one meter lead on the power plug and trace back, checking each connection until you find the defective one. Don't rule out a broken wire, maybe inside the insulation (but unlikely).

My 5600 lakewood heater is only 1 yr. old and will not come on, lights and all.

Good description of your Electric Heater problem-- thank you!

Well, if we have lights at the heater, then we know the wall receptacle and the appliance plug is fine, and the wire connecting it to the heater is fine-- So somewhere inside we have an open circuit.
Do you have a volt meter, to trace the power from where it comes in from the cord, thru the thermostat, and THRU A HIGH TEMPERATURE LIMIT DEVICE?

For likely -- either there is a High Temperature limit reset on the Thermostat (Like maybe pushing in on the dial, or rotating to maximum Counter Clock-wise-- or Clock-wise---- or a reset button?

Or there could be a high limit device inside, that looks like a small glass fuse-- but is actually a High Temperature LImit protector. (You will se Deg. C. stamped on it..)
Check for continuity across it.
If it is open,-- it needs to be replace-- Probably soldered into place?
Maybe your local Hardware can help you?-- or go back to the store you bought it at, and tell them what you found-- and get the part you need.

If all those switches and limit devices are OK-- can you find the heating element?-- It will be the bigger wires, and probably toward the bottom of the heater?

With the power cord pulled out of the wall-- can you check for continuity across the heating element? -- If you have an ohm meter-- you should be able to read in the 3- 8 ohms range.

Any charred wires?-- signs of overheating, or disconnected wires?-- Loose screws?

When you check these things out, get back with us, and let us know what you want to pursue next to continue trouble shooting your heater.

We want to help-- Give us more clues.

Cozy heater will not fire, replaced powerpile but gas valve will not open Jumped tstat also

pull stat wires off of valve and put a jumper wire across the 2 TH terminals on the valve, if it comes on could be the stat wire run a peice of stat wire from unit to stat to test.

Wires not connected to gas valve need wiring diagram for Cozy wall vent heater

I think you mean a milli-volt system. I went to the cozy heaters website and found the wiring diagram in an owners manual for a similar unit, a W355. I bet the wiring diagram will work for your.

My cozy heater was hit when another appliance fell on it and impacted it. Apparently some safety mechanism shut it off now I can't turn it back on. Thanx

Most heaters have safety switches on them in case they turn over. Ohm the wires and make sure the switch is closed. Most of them are inside and on the side of the heaters. They have 2 wires on them.

Blower does not turn on

check to make sure your fan switch is touching the metal.. the fan switch is tiny (size of a dime) with two stake on wire conectors going to it... check to make sure the speed switch (looks like a dimmer switch) is sending power to the fan switch... if all that is a yes then remove fan switch and hold a lighter to the back of it.. should come on in 5 seconds with direct flame.. if you still have nothing replace fan switch..

Cozy wall heater does not turn on

Hi, I will walk you through to check the stat. Pull off the cover 1st. You will need a screwdriver, a small one. Could be slotted or phillips. Loosen all of the screws you can see until the t-stat comes off. You have 3 sections counting cover. You will now see the sub-base and wires. You should have only 2 wires to the stat. You will need a piece of scrap insulated wire, even a piece of old speaker wire twisted togeter at each end will work. No worry of shock. Just jump or touch across the 2 terminals and hold them on and if it fires up and comes on, the thermostat is the fault. More then likely that will be the problem. Any hardware store will have one. Get a heat milivolt only, even if the salesman trys to sale you a heat/cool 24 volt stat which will work, but will cause problems in the future. I am sure it is stat. If not, contact me and I will walk you through what else would cause this. If the pilot is on, there is no ignitor on this furnace, either a thermopile generator or a thermocouple, a high limit switch and the main gas valve. Keep me posted, it will only take you a few minutes to test the t-stat. Let me know.

The heater will not ignite properly

How old is the thermostat? Also there a limit switches at different points on that unit. If you have a volt ohm meter find the round disc like safety's and ohm them out. Take the wires off the disc before testing them. You should have a continuity should be closed they only open if unit gets too hot. Say something like 180 degree's.

A fast way to check out the thermostat is take a small diameter wire take the cover off the t-stat and jump across the R and the W on the t-stat. If the furnace comes on then t-stat bad. Let me know if this is helpfull. Ken

Cozy wall heater

On top of the gas valve you will see a knob. Turn the knob to the position that says pilot. It's on the side of valve. Press the knob down with one hand and take your long lighter stick it by the pilot tube looks like a small aluminum tube should light pretty quickly hold for 30 seconds release the button you have been holding down. Now turn the knob to the on position. Make sure the thermostat is turned off so the flame don't fire up as soon as you turn knob. If you are uncomfortable gas your gas company and they should come out for free.

Cozy one sided wall furnace (no blower motor)

This is a weird one, but make sure all the wire connections are in the correct place. I accidentally miss wired a heater like this and it did the same thing.
