Re: Too noisy while running

Sorry to hear that. Mass produced in China or Taiwan units rarely need to pass a quality control check or they get josled about in transit. Some units made by Honeywell with overseas assembly and parts also have this same problem. Cheap labor, cheap parts. It shouldn't be on the part of the user to track down faults, but if you want to try to find the squeaks and vibrations - go inside the unit and look for loose components. Duct tape in the right places does have a calming effect. A little silicone sealer does wonders too! Just be careful! I'll probably get a "thanks for trying" rating but this is just my opinion.

The heater operation is very noisy compared to new. Perhaps it's the fan? The heater is six years old and I'm concerned that it may cause a fire.

Its most likely the bearings in the fan motor failing causing vibration. One simple way would be too check and make sure all nuts and screws and bolts are tight around th e fan. If so is the fan blade dirty it doesnt take much dirt on a fan blade to get it out of balance and cause bearing failure.

Noisy when operator...especially during start-up. A deep rumbling...a bearing wearing out? Vibration...something loose Thank you.

Depending on how much the heater has been used, you may just have carbon/soot built up on the exhaust fan blades. This can be remedied by removing the blower assembly and cleaning the exhaust fan blades. They are the set on top. If could also be a bearing as you suggest but I would check the fan blades first. Let me know if this doesn't fix the problem.

Loud humming

If this is an electric resistance heater then there is no power supply or transformer. I had a baseboard heater that would hum loudly and I found there's a wire that runs along the bottom to connect the far end of the heat element to the electrical wiring at the supply end. This wire becomes magnetized from the current flowing through it and vibrates in the channel it runs through. I was able to open this channel and squirt a bit of silicone caulk in to keep the wire from vibrating and the hum is gone.
