Heater kicks out

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?

Re: Heater kicks out

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.

Re: Heater kicks out

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.

Turns itself off after only 1-2 minutes running time.

There should be a thermoswitch. Set it to a higher level. If it already high, it is probably defective.

Need to set differential on my ct 1540 thermostat, the furnace kicks on at after it drops 1 degree this cant be right

Yes this is probably correct the newer thermostats will kick on with a 1 degree temerature drop. This is better since the furnace only has to make up one degree of temerature and has a shorter run cycle saving you money.

Fan keeps running.

Some programmable thermostats have a circulate feature. This feature will allow your fan to run approx. 20 minutes per hour. This will insure better circulation, a better balanced temperature throughout the home & better air quality do to more air filtration. Read your thermostat manual to see if your thermostat has this feature and how to turn it off if needed. Another possibility would be on an older furnace with a fan limit control. If the temperature settings are set to low on the fan limit (or if the control is malfunctioning) you could experience a fan that runs a lot even if the thermostat is off.
