Question about Heating & Cooling
Simple I should think the thermostats have gone. These are silver round objects with one wire in and one wire out. They have a bimetallic disc inside which flips when a certain predetermined temperature is reached. Sounds like yours is flipping out fairly quickly. Can you hear the fire click just after the element starts turning orange? These thermostats are fairly universal and have a number on them which determines the value. Before investigation definitely unplug the fire as this ill definitely kill you!! You can check the thermostat by disconnecting the wires, and checking the resistance from each terminal when it is cold, it should be an open circuit.....no reading....a simple way to see if it is tripping out very quickly, heat it gently with a hair dryer...if it clicks really quickly......definitely the stat. Also, if there is a trip switch, this would indicate a different fault such as a faulty or burnt wire causing a short circuit. Hopefully this is not the case, especially as it seems you are not blowing a fuse or tripping your fuse box. Good luck. Stats on eBay, same as the type that are used in tumble dryers.

Your prob is their is a thermostatic solinode that is trigger the unit to go off--because it thinks itself as too hot and unsafe to be on--this trigger was defective or damaged by disuse and/or fatigue------give it a shake-- better yet, when cool and unplugged-vacuum or blow out with compressed air-with out disturbing integrity of workmanship on device--if that no worky--time for new one---thermostatic element is dirty, device being of differing Mghz than outlet, if fairly new device--amperage of outlet is too small for device to work properly. If it is a 240 volt or a 120 volt device and your attempiting to use the wrong voltage outlet--STOP USING THE DEVICE

first try to pull out the little white button on bottom left side. if it is already pulled out, then take cover off, lightly press on the center dial as you adjust the little adjusters that are in the dial. should be two of them, the first should say off set to 90, second one says on set to 130or 135. these steps may work. if not then one of the wire connections may be loose.
