Operator's Manual Online?? Patton heater model# POH2501

I am using a Patton heater model# POH2501 at work. I don't know where the operator's manual is, and I don't know what the knobs do or how to adjust it correctly.
Question:
1.) Is there a place online that has a manual for this heater?
2.) Does Patton have a website that I can download a manual?
3.) How come they still make products that are not intuitive and easy to use??

    Patton mdl.POH2501 does not heat. Power is getting to unit. Is it thermostat, heating switch, or element? Is there a manual on-line?

    I also have a POH2501, a couple of 3 years old, and it also stopped heating. Its getting power but doesn't get warm. Can these be repaired and by who? I live in St. Francis, WI. Can a small appliance repair person do it? Is it worth the cost or just by new? I don't remember what I payed for it but its in great shape and I hate to get rid of it if it will be a cheap fix.

I have a manual and would be happy to upload a copy to you. I haven't found a Patton website yet. I'm ultimately hoping to find a place where I can buy replacement wheels for my Patton POH2501, but so far, no luck.

Let me know if you're still in need of the manual.

I believe that I have a solution. My heater (model POH2501) was packed away and I now need to use it because one room in my house does not heat very well.

1.) There is no place that I have found yet that offers a manual online for this product. I have sent a few customer assistance messages though.

2.) There is a website called Patton Products. It is part of the Jarden Corporation. The link is: Patton Heaters and Fans Website.

3.) They still make products (I think) that would probably be easier to use. There also is a recall on some models of oil Heaters.

I have a POH2501 from a thrift store, no manual. Using a clamp amp device I determined that lower switch positions 1, 2 and 3 are incremental watt increases for the heater. Positions 1, 2 and 3 correspond to about 600, 900, and 1200 Watts. The upper know is a thermostat and controls the temperature of shut off, clockwise increases temp. I think that is all you need to know besides general safety information for this type of heater, and you can find that via a google search.

A few things left out, position 1 is off, the on light on my unit works strange, in that it is brightest on the lowest power position 1 setting, gets less bright on 2, and is nearly off in position 3 (weird and non intuitive, but no big deal). In addition I've read that these don't have a tip over switch, so put it in a safe place, or do what we do and only operate it in the 1 setting where it doesn't get very hot.

Are the thermostat knobs replacable?


Yes, they should have a set screw built in, or they will simply pull off without much effort. If the knob does not pull off without much resistance, then look around it for a hole with a allen screw inside. If this is the case, just loosen the screw and the knob will come off no problem.

CAN THIS HEATER CAUSE AFIRE AND IS THIS HEATER ON RECALL PATTON PUH680-U


I do not know if this heater is on any product recall but we have used patton heaters for years and pretty much have had good luck with them. However there is a fire hazard present if you set or store combustibles to close to the front.Tip over switches don't always work and I would never recommend using a heater of this type in a unsupervised area.I hope this is of some help to you. Thank you and happy holidays.

I have a patton puh682 1500 watt heater and after a while it just seems to turn off is there some kind of timer or heat control?


Under the main black knob is a bi-metal switch which shuts down the heat at various temps depending on your setting. Their is no timer.

Model PT 268 heater doesn't work at all but seems to have voltage


Hi,
Yes it would seem that the thermostat or the knob would be the problem...when checking for voltage you need to check for 220v across the two terminals for the heating element. You will have 120 feeding back and forth all over the place but the fan and element will only work if they have 220... so you can have voltage and it still not work...

Not heating


Sounds like either the thermostat or the element. If you hear a clicking when you rotate the thermostat you can assume that it is working. My advise is to replacethe heater. The element is sealed inside the oil chamber and the thermostat will cost almost as much as a new heater, sorry.

take a hole punch and knock a hole in each end, one on the top, one on the bottom and drain the oil into a 2 litre plastic bottle. Now you can recycle both!
