    Same problem here. I was going to try to find this switch, or one like it. Might as well give up huh.

    We purchased the same unit in the fall of 2008 and 2 months ago the fan power switch totally fried and almost caused a fire in our home. We are looking for another switch for the unit as well and have run into the same problem with the company not having any parts.

The switch itself is a (double pole single throw ) 15 amp 250 volt /20 amp 125 volt.You can buy any switch like that.The hard part is trying to find the same size to fit the hole in the heater.

Yeah same problem here with heater switch. Almost caused a fire in our house. After taking the unit apart to take out the switch we noticed the wires connecting to the fan switch were all black and melted! Be carefull with this heater!

    Same model #, same problem with the rocker switch. Luckily the switch is stuck on the on position, so we plug it in and then unplug when finished. Any suggestions for parts?

I have a older Carrier heat pump, model 38YKC060. Does anyone know how cold it will continue to work at?


Heat pumps are of little or no value at temps around 40 degrees or below. And if you use the strips it will cost a small fortune if you have relatively high electric rates as most folks do.

We have royal red furnace to heat our home.The fan dose not stop.


Details.......does the furnace function normally otherwise? Might just be a stuck fan switch. Make sure the thermostat hasn't been set on Fan ON setting or summer air circ. on older furnaces.
Find the fan switch and tap it and see if fan quits. If it does,fan switch is bad.probably. Always make sure your air circ. filter(return air to furnace) is replaced every 3 mo. or so,too. don-ohio (:^)

How do I fix my electric heater


  • sounds like the sensor or bulb that tells it to start the blower is defective/ im not familiar with your unit but this seems the most logical answer most furnace will not turn the blower on right away usually 90 seconds after the ignition but will also run longer to exhume any dangerous carbon monoxide. Electricic heaters are different. What type of unit do you have

Repair infrared space heater


It might have a fuse that has been blown internally. This may have happened to protect it from over heating because it was left on too long or something went bad and it got too hot.

Electric Furnace stopped running


You have one of two problems. Either the capacitor for the motor has failed or the motor has failed. I would turn off the power to the unit and see if you can locate the capacitor and remove it. An ac supply or electrical supply house can match up the capacitor. This is relatively inexpensive. Otherwise you will need a new motor.
