Question about Honeywell HZ-709 Oil Filled Radiator Heater
I had the exact same problem with the HZ-710 - it has the same controls and design. The manufacturer (KAZ) www.kaz.com indicates on their website that there are no parts available for these heaters - I suspect that it is cheaper to replace these inexpensive heaters than to have it fixed. There sevice phone is 800-477-0457
or email: ConsumerRelations@kaz.com
I discovered that my heater had a defective auto-shutoff sensor - there's two sensors that are wired in tandom - both need to have a connection to complete the circuit - I'm not sure if it was the sensors or the incredibly sloppy wire connection that was causing the problem - I disconnected the sensors and permanently soldered the wire connection myself. The unit works fine now.
Even though I voided the warranty - to me it was worth it not to hassle with any (non) customer service - for I suspect they would send me a note that stated the following - "At KAZ we pride ourselves in quality manufacturing and are sorry for any incovenience that you may have.blah, blah, blah, blah, blahhhhh, bla-bla-bla, buuuhlaaaa, blah, blah, blah, um, blah, blah, blahhhhh, b-b-b-b-lah, la, la, blah!

Thank you, thank you sayedz! We took my heater apart, somewhat like what you said - got enough from your post to figure it out, eliminated the bad tip-over sensor and now my heater is working! I'm so happy and WARM. We just used the tape version. I don't have children in the home, just pets, but I only use this heater in my office during the hours that I'm in there, so I don't think I'll have any safety concerns with not having that sensor intact.
I really appreciate you taking the time to explain how to fix it.
