SOURCE: No Heat!

Sometimes too much dust around the heating elements can cause the heater to switch off to prevent a fire. Check for dust build up first. You can try using a can of compressed air that can be found at many electronic stores.

Remove the nozzle and clean it. Clean the photo cell also. Check the fuel pump pressure it should be 5.1 #.

SOURCE: Heater wont blow hot air anymore.

Hello,
In all probability the heating element has failed and the cost to repair would be more than the cost to replace it. Inexpensive heaters do that over time.

SOURCE: my heater won't turn on.

There really isn't anyway to give a difinitive answer to your problem. it requires some trouble shooting. Did you blow the breaker on the circuit feeding the outlet you had your heater plugged into? Is there a power indicator light on your heater? If so, when the dog tipped the heater over was it still working (ON)? If no indicator the problem gets more tedious and techy.

Oil heaters are great and simply designed. They are closed systems with heating elements that connect to the other end of the wire that plugs into your wall. The switch is in between the two to allow current to pass or not. If any of those connections was shaken loose by the fall it would cause your heater to malfunction. That's something you (or a service person) can only verify by opening the unit up. Hope this has helped...:-)

Does this use a lot of electricity? My bill went up after using this for the first month.


It does use a lot of electricity, all stoves do. You can reduce the amount it uses by turning it off.

My Duraflame heater model dfs-550-0 , heats well but my flames no longer work . is there anything I can do to fix this problem? someone please help!


Actually, it could just be a burnt out light bulb. Open the back. The light bulb is easy to get to and easy to replace.

Duraflame heater runs for 5 mins and shuts off


try cleaning off the filter that is on the bottom in the back of the unit. It is a fail safe sensor that in the event the unot overheats it shuts off the heater. Worked for me on mine.
