Question about Del-Rain 1500-V 1500 Watt Ceramic Heater

1 Answer

Heater smells like it got too hot!

My Del-Rain Model 1500-V has been working fine, but today it smelled like it got too hot, or something inside was burning.  Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong with the "LifeTime" heater and is is repairable?

Check for dust in the air path through the heater. the fan forces air through the element.  if you have an air blower - blow air in a reverse direction through it.

Try spraying water while it's running on the engine, plugs, wiring from a spray bottle to see if you can locate where it might be acting up from!
