Question about Honeywell HZ365 Ceramic Compact Heater
I have a Honeywell heater, model # HZ3650. The problem I have is that the heater runs for approx" 1-5 minutes and then kicks out& it would not run again. Then the next day while playing with the heater it did start, but did kick out again and will not re start, even when given time to cool down. what is the problem?
Honeywell heaters like HZ3650 have a screen on the air inlet at the back side of the heater. This screen can be partially blocked off by an accumulation of lint, etc. The lint blocks some of the air flow which may cause heat increase within the heater to the point that the safety shutoff thermostat shuts off the power. Operation is returned after a cool down period only to repeat the shut down cycle after a short period of operation. If this is the cause of the problem the screen must be cleaned.

Follow-Up Question from another buyer of this product:
I live in a basement suite which seems to get quite cold in the winter, and this little fella puts out heat just fine, but turns itself off and will stay off until unplugged for a time - however, during this time, the room cools off too much and so it becomes a constant waiting game of the unit thinking it is 'too hot to start' and unplugging.. any suggestions or alternate products I could look at?
Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Loose connection to the thermostat. if the unit uses push on spade connectors, there could be sparking at the connection which expands the metal so it doesn't make contact. cooling down it makes contact again.
