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?

    Thank you for the help.

    First posting here, this was meant to be a 'problem' not a solution as below, apologies...

    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.

    I have the exact same problem. You can let it cool for days, but unless you unplug it and wait a little longer, it won't start up again. While unplugged, it makes a tick sound, and after that it will start again (for a short few seconds to a minute.)



    Is there a part that can be fixed or replaced?

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.

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.

AC runs for 5 minutes and then circuit breaker


What else do you have running on hydro while AC is running? Such as coffee maker, microwave, water heater, fridge. That 30 amp breaker is your main breaker I assume, or breaker on pole your plugged in to. Keep in mind your AC will normally draw approx. 15-17+ amps momentarily when compressor kicks in to cool, then drop back to 12-15 amps when running normal. If your AC is drawing too much current, then you would only normally trip 20 amp breaker for AC in your panel. Try switching other appliances to gas operation while running AC, such as water heater, and fridge. Make sure incoming voltage is up to specs as well . (115-120 volts)
If water heater takes 5-8 amps, and fridge takes same when they are calling for power, you'll be close or over the 20amp mark when you consider your on board converter etc. as well. That only leaves approx 10 amps for AC that requires approx 15 amps to run, and up to 20amps when compressor kicks in. If you switch all those other items over to propane, and it still happens, then a current draw test should be done on AC unit to see if perhaps a capacitor is faulty, or possible compressor faulty.

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.
