The instructions say this unit is not designed to be taken apart and they are right. Although i was able to unscrew the back plate and slip my hand into wipe the swivel base. It turns once again and my wife thinks I'm a genius.

when most ceramic room heaters stop working, the blower is clogged with lint and dust from floor use . get an air compressor, or a can of air. take unit outside using a small head philips driver remove screws while laying on an old sheet .disassemble cover carefully and blow dust away from you and clean blade without bending with a toothbrush in vinegar water not gettting any liquid on the electrical parts. reassemble. thanks karl

I'm presuming that your heater has a tilt switch that isn't working. Is this right?
Tilt switches used to contain mercury (which has been phased out because it's so toxic). They now contain ball bearings... which may have gotten frozen (especially if you live in a high-humidity area).
I'd first of all open up the heater, identify the switch (generally black plastic, around 1" long by 1/2" wide - something like that) and rotate the heater back & forth... listening for the sound of a ball bearing rolling back & forth. If you don't hear any sound, you can try CAREFULLY knocking the switch housing with, say, a ball-peen hammer to loosen it up.
If this doesn't work, you will probably want to replace the switch. You can find them on Google, ranging from $2-6. If you're handy with a soldering iron, you can easily replace it yourself. Otherwise, find a friend (or take it into a shop) for a very quick & easy fix. Don't forget to epoxy the housing of the switch to the heater, so it doesn't rattle around!
