By checking all the connections, do you mean you've looked at each component to make sure the machine is assembled so as to activate all of the safety features?
1) The back screen needs to be inserted so that the tab depresses the interior safety switch in the slot. You'll be able to hear it click. Wiggle the screen if the little tab seems loose. Some need to be inserted down on top of the switch, others need to push the switch back. Try both ways.
2) Have you checked the fuse? If it is blown, replace it with the EXACT same size, available from an auto parts store.
3) Is the wall socket live? (I know, that sounds totally stupid! But you'd be surprised at how often the wall socket is dead! (Often turned off by a switch somewhere else.)
4) If there's a switch on the far right side (some have this feature, some don't), set it to "Manual" and leave it there. The "auto" feature sometimes is deactivated or stops working.
5) Make sure the switch on the front is "On."
6) Try turning the knobs to different settings. Sometimes the lower settings are too low to activate the machine.
Hope this helps. If none of these troubleshooting steps helps, you can call Vollara (new name for Alpine/EcoQuest) and they'll give you some great options. 800-989-2299. Use #16618 if they ask for a referral number.
It sounds like you need to replace your Neutral Safety Switch. A (NSS) Neutral Safety Switch comes in all Auto Transmission cars and is a safety device that only lets you start your car only while it is in Park or Neutral. If you try to start it in any other gear or if your NSS is going bad it will prevent you from starting your car. You can replace it yourself it is right by the Auto Shift lever under the console plate. I would have it checked out first to confirm but I'm pretty sure that's what you need.
A common issue with these heaters is the safety switch which is part of the thermostatically controlled temp switch. A faulty safety switch would result in constant "on/off" cycle as the unit is sensing an over-heated safety condition. If you hear a "click" when it shuts off and then another "click" when it turns back on, it is that switch heating up and cooling down opening and closing the circuit.
The manufacturer must install a "master" kill switch to prevent the unit from overheating and catching fire. A faulty switch may be the issue you have been facing.
End result, more money in getting it "fixed" than what you could spend to buy another heater. All in all, great heater when it works - horrible when it decides to break!!
lights draw about 5 amps each.
a starter pulls 200 plus amps so sometimes low current things work. hook up a good battery and try it.
is it auto?look for a problem with the neutral safety switch,put in neutral and see if it turns over.if it is a standard,there is a switch on the clutch that is connected to the starter circuit,make sure it is ok.these things are all possible...battery,cables,,starter and solenoid, ignition switch,safety neutral switch.
