SOURCE: I have a holmes heater,,one side of the heat

There are not any that I am aware of and if there is it is probably as much for a new element as what the heater cost. At Walmart the heaters can be purchased rather cheaply. Some items it is cheaper to replace the entire item than it is to replace parts. Cost of parts, then shipping, then your time installing them, not really cost effective. Sorry but that is the truth and possibly cheapest way.

SOURCE: Hello, How do I get heat

Hi,

If the electric heater fan comes on when you turn on the heater, but no heat seems to be coming out, you could have a blown circuit or there is a break in the actual heater coil. Most parts can be ordered directly from the manufacturer and installed quickly and easily. Before you can order the parts you need, you will want to check the unit thoroughly to detect the source of your problem. Replacing a circuit can be easy, whereas replacing or repairing the coil can be much more complicated.

Materials Needed; Voltage regulator, Screwdriver or hex driver, Replacement coil, Replacement circuits, Replacement regulator, soldering gun and solder, Wire caps, Wire clamp and Wire stripping tool.

Step 1 - Locate the Source of the Problem

If the electric heater fan comes on, and you are not getting heat, it could be a blown circuit or resistor or a broken heater coil. You will want to open the case and start testing the circuits with the voltage regulator. Look for breaks in the electrical path, and know voltages will change between circuits that are separated by resistors. Resistors are the little white cylinders that connect to the board here and there on 2 wires. Once you have checked the circuits, also look at the coil. You want to see if there is a break in the line anywhere. These wires work as a complete circuit, and if it snaps from heating and cooling over a long period of use, the circuit will be broken and not give off heat.

Step 2 - Replace Burnt Out Circuits and Resisters

If you have determined that the circuits or resisters on your unit are the source of your problems, then simply use the soldering gun to heat the contacts and remove them. Replace them with parts that meet the voltage standard for their job. This will prevent you from having issues with short circuiting in the unit. If this was the only problem you could find, put the case back together and turn it on, checking the electric heater fan for warm air.

Step 3 - Replacing the Heater Coil

The coil is what will heat up, which builds temperature for the electric heater fan to blow into the room. Modern heaters generally have a replaceable heater coil unit that can simply be installed. Make sure you follow power down procedures before removing the coil to avoid electric shock or short circuiting. Find the electrical connections on the coil and remove them, and then dismount the coil. Install the new coil and close the case up. Be sure to reconnect everything properly before turning it on.

Step 4 - Repairing a Heater Coil

In older units, the electric heater fan is not connected to the temperature gauge. This usually means that the coil is going to be more difficult to replace, as they were not built for maintenance. To repair one of these, you will need a heat resistant metal wire clamp. It should be made of a conductive material such as steel so the current will pass through it to the connected wire. Take the 2 broken ends and clamp them tightly together to repair the broken circuit.

I hope the above was helpful....

Good luck.

SOURCE: I recently purchased a Holmes HQH319 heater. I want to use it in a room with tropical birds. Birds are very sensitive to chemical fumes. Is there any Teflon or other coatings on this heater that that

You would have to contact the makers of the heater to give you a clear answer on that , most heaters smell when first put on from new and you would have to burn this off first ,

How do i fix my stiebel eltron tankless electric water heater?It stop working..


Th easy fix would be installing a new heating element that has burned out. You don't say what size this tankless heater but if it stopped working entirely you might have just one heating element inside. You can test it by (1) turning off the circuit serving the heater, disconnecting one of the wires to the heating element, then taking an ohmmeter to see what the resistance of the element is. If it is "infinity" then it is open and burned out. Replace element. If it is around 6 ohms (for a 10kW heater running at 240V) then the heating element is OK. Unfortunately those heating elements don't last forever. Check the repair manual on how to replace the heating element.

Model 790.96009601 I replaced the heating element that burned out. New heating element does not work.


The replacement heating element could be defective, not burned out. Also, the replacement element could have been installed incorrectly.

Baking & broiling elements won't heat after baking element burned out and was replaced.


the surge from the original element burning out has destroyed the control board if you can't hear the relays on the board clicking when you power up the elements bake or broil then its either the low voltage side of the board,if you hear clicking then the relays are working but the contacts are burned out and can't pass the current to heat the oven or briol elements

After the humidifier runs for a few minutes it just shuts off.


You might need to clean around the heating element...
we have very hard water and calcium builds up on and around the heating element and all the surrounding parts. I take it apart and pour CPR around the element and scrub with a brush .. once you get it clean it should stay running.

We just bought a new water heater and it's not heating up water.


The heating element was bad. It's hard to believe that a brand new water heater would have a burn element, but that's the problem. I replace the heating element and its started working properly.

Both heating elements in the oven not working. I did inspect the h. elements found no burn. thankyou help


Ok, you can confirm element failuer by testing for continuity with a Ohm meter. A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

You can usually tell when the element itself burns out. It might have small holes or bubbles on the coil. Replace the element, if found defective.


Another reason, why the elements would not start, might be a defective infinite switch (located behind the control panel, with the burner knob on its shaft). Replace the switch if found defective.

If the elements show continuity, you will need to replace the entire control board(clock, EOC)..

The oven stopped working and heating up. The top range part works.


I suspect a heating element in the oven has burned out. Some ovens have 2 heating elements, one on the bottom for baking and one on the top for broiling. If this is the case, you can try setting the oven on broil and see if the top element gets hot. Usually the bottom element fails first because food gets dripped on it. In most cases you can unplug the old heating element by just pulling on it and plug the new one just as easily. You can check the resistance of the heating element with an ohm meter. If it's burned out the resistance will be very high, probably greater than a mega ohm. In some cases you will need to take the back off the oven to replace the heating element. Just make sure the oven is unplugged and cool when you start working on it.
