Re: Quick Flipoff

The air intake vents in the rear were clogged with dust. They needed to be brushed and vaccumed.

Re: Quick Flipoff

I just took one apart with the same beeping problem. It wouldn't come on at all. I was going to clean the input filters although they didn't look like they really needed it. As I took off the 8 screws and removed the back cover to the unit, the thermocouple popped loose as it was apparently hot glued to the back cover somewhere near the top. I checked the fan and it moved fine, no apparent connection problems and set the unit back upright and plugged it in and it worked. The only thing that changed in removing the cover was that I spinned the motor fan manually to check the bearings and I broke loose the hot glue holding the thermocouple. Either the thermocouple doesn't like being operated in an upright mode (not likely) or the fan unit incorporates an RPM feedback to the controller to shut down the unit should the fan sieze up (more likely). Either way, it's operating again.

I installed a new Honeywell RTH74/75 series thermostat and it has the incorrect day displayed.

Yes it will reset itself when you do that, it really should not be too hard to figure out the day.

Remote doesn't work

well depending on brand and make there could be lots of resons for this first remote stuffed get new, or it's batteries are low and need replacing as remote signal will get weaker as batteries die, could have lost signal to rewciever box if has one like some gas heaters have wich they have a learn button on reciever box you push this button you need something thin as it is in a thin little hole to get to these buttons once pushed and reciver made some beeping sounds which sometimes when you let go of button after 5 sec's then press the on or mode button on remote it will beep again meaning signal is recieved or the reciever box has flat batteries in it which need changing then usually sometimes once batteries changed you need to learn in anyway if memroy gone from being flat to long, most remotes have their own manual or are in heater manual so if you have read up first to know what your looking at you shouldn't need a mechanic for this but if you unsure then i would contact one to fix most of the time it would probably be easier to contact mechanic i know this may coast you but whats a couple of hundred to be warm through winter also if it's not a portable heater and you can find a service agent get it serviced and mention control they will take care of ti for you and your heater will be more efficient for you through winter it is important to have heaters service i recomend once a year if you want it to work the same every year as it doesn't take long for them to start loosing efficiency usually only a couple months of running will start to clog up and if thier is a fan on heater its important to have them cleaned regulary for air movement i've seen a fan start to block up after a month it's basically like you vacuum sucking up dirt, dust and lint constantly while its running and is always alot worse if you have indoor furry pets

Heatrunner 33553 doesn't work

I had tried unplugging the unit for a few minutes but that didn't work, so I unplugged it for a few hours and it re-set to a working condition.

I just fixed this problem for my parents. All you have to do is hold the up and down arrows that sorround the power buttom for 3 seconds at the same time and the key symbol should dissapear and make a slight beep. Then you should be able to use the heater as normal =]
