Sounds like your pressure screw on the back could need adjusting or look at your manual under troubleshooting it will give you the correct answer to your problem.

SOURCE: heater won't stay on

This product does indeed have a problem with the safety switch, that is only supposed to kick in when the unit is turned over. I had a total of 3 units sent to me from Kaz. Each time the unit would work for a short time, then slowly begin to turn off and on. I finally decided to take the unit apart and look for any obvious problems. There is a weighted swivel that will raise a contact point to turn the unit off in an emergency. The contact points would spark off and on, depositing a black carbon on them until they would no longer allow power to pass through. I cleaned the contacts with a fine finger nail file and bent one of the contact arms inward to make better tension between the contacts. This allowed the unit to stay on for longer periods of time. But even with the thermo-stat turned all the way up, the unit does not stay on long enough to heat the room. In effect, what happens is the contacts will continue to ark, putting black deposits on the contacts until you're back to square one. Apparently the unit also has a thermo-stat related problem. I'm sending the unit back again (they only made me send the power cord last time), but will insist on a different model this time. Good Luck

SOURCE: heater keeps shutting off !!

I have model 5532, but I think they all have the same problem. There seems to be a safety device in the ceramic heater that turns off if it gets too hot. It "remembers" when this happens as well and will shut off until it is unplugged for 10-15 minutes.

This happens on even lightly used heaters if used in dusty conditions. Dust builds up behind the ceramic heater and the lack of flow causes it to overheat. The unit must be dismantled and the dust brushed/vacuumed out. The good news is that not only will the heater work again, but it will have better airflow too!

To do this, tech support and other people say to "clean the rear grill", but my rear was not dirty. The front grill had some dust that I vacuumed clean, but did not help. In my unit there are no filters before the air goes through the heater element. The problem is in the center of the heater. Taking out the internal fan (four screws on the sides of the squirrel fan box), I could see that the radiator was over half covered in dust. I cleaned that dust out using a shop vac and the problem went away.

Opening the heater was a little tricky, two of the screws were triangle head screws. Once inside, however, it is a simple proceedure to remove the fan. Of course, you should unplug the heater and wait a while before opening it up to make sure there are no electrical charges stored in the unit.

SOURCE: Honeywell Surround HZ2200 / HZ2204 /

A link to an Adobe (Acrobat) Reader format (.pdf) owner's manual for Honeywell® (Mini Tower) SURROUND HEAT™ HEATER FAN Models HZ-2200 (charcoal) and HZ-2204 (white) is here.

Some text from the manual:

SET UP
• The Surround Heat™ Heater is designed to
disperse heat in either a 360° range or in one direction only.
• To select the desired heating mode, slide the Direction Control switch, located
on the top of the heater, to the position of your choice:
– to the right (full circle) for 360° Heating
– to the left (half circle) for forward only heating (One Direction
Heating)

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Select the appropriate heat dispersion mode. (See
Set-Up instructions.)
• With the Power knob in the OFF position, plug the
heater into a polarized 120V outlet.
• Turn the Thermostat control fully clockwise to the
HIGH setting.
• Turn the heater on using the Child Resistant switch
(Power knob). To operate the switch, push down
the two sides of the Power knob while turning it
clockwise to the desired position. The power
light will illuminate. The Child Resistant switch helps
ensure that the heater can not be turned on accidentally.
• When the room reaches a comfortable temperature, slowly turn the Thermostat
control counter-clockwise until the heater goes off. This is the point at which the
Thermostat setting equals the room temperature. At this setting, the Thermostat
will automatically turn the heater on and off to maintain this selected temperature.
• Push down and turn the Power knob to OFF and unplug the heater when you
are finished using it.

My best guess is that you are are connecting to your AC receptacle with an extention cord that is too small. The Reddy Heater contains a computer that will shut the unit off if it cannot pull enough amps from your service. The longer the cord the higher the loss from receptacle to unit. This loss can be reduced by increasing the size of your extention cord. I run a 100' 10/2 cord.

Hope this helps!

Sounds like the pump or air filter is dirty. If cleaning them doesn't help, the pump will need to be rebuilt.

After receiving the smart heater above ground pool sunheater I found out that it needs 6 hours of sun. The pool is covered by trees therefore no sun. Should I return the heater or will it add at least a...


The panel must have direct sunlight for it to heat. At 6 hours of direct light the 2'x20' panel should "collect" around 40,000 BTUs of sun heat energy. If water is circulated through the collector when sunlight is not warming it, the collector will act like a radiator and you will actually cool the water, so if you run your filter at night be sure to divert the water directly to the return and by passing the collector. So, if the entire area where the collector will be is always in the shade, it will not add a few degrees but actually cool the pool instead.

Pro 110, runs 10 min., blows white smoke ,shuts off


the first thing you need to do is go back to useing K1 kerosene, diesel fuel not only burns dirty but also has a tendency to gel up in cold weather which could be makeing it hard for the heater to draw the proper amount of fuel. To reset the pressure you will need a gage, it should run at about 6-7 psi. you can order a pressure gage from mr. heater online, they are by far the cheapest I have found as they are the actual manufacturer or call 1-800-251-0001

sequence of operation is just like the monitor. combustion blower comes on to purge chamber of fumes. after the delay, the solenoid pump comes on and deposits fuel to the burner mat, within 20 sec the igniter comes on, incandesces and ignites the fuel if there is no flame, the flame rod is supposed to shut down heater and go into a lockout condition until shut off or unplugged to reset. check solenoid pump first. you already know the igniter works. check the fuel filter in the fuel sump might be clogged. check the fuel sump float valve, might be stuck, supposed to hang free in the sump with needle valve open. thermostat is digital just starts and shuts down the burner and solenoid pump.
