Hi Spybotics. I have the same problem and I traced mine down to a burned out over-heat fuse link. Check out my recent post. My guess is that you are having the same problem as me. It's not hard to tell - just take off the rear panel and test the link (looks like a small resistor in line with the element) with an ohm meter. Open circuit means burned out fuse link. DO NOT bypass the link, as an extreme fire hazard will exist without it.

sounds like a broken element or wire. with unit unplugged, using an ohm meter check all connections and check elements for resistance.

The bottom switch is bad. Unplug bottom wires and touch them together, if heat and fan comes on your switch is bad.

you can still use this heater, but continue to monitor its operation. If it gets hot enough to start smoking again, discontinue use and purchase a new one. Your safety means EVERYTHING!!!!!!

Separate the case and trace out the wiring you are looking for an over heat limit switch. These are usually at the top of the case. You should also go over the element with a volt ohm meter make sure it is good, once you locate the thermal overload check it with the volt ohm meter it should read closed or dead short. If it reads open here is your culprit. It has been my observation that replacement parts can generally cost as much as replacing the entire heater. These I can pick up all day long for $19.00 at Home Depot the call them milk house heaters. Good luck with the repair.

The fan is "sticking" before firing up. How do you correct the problem? Thanks for the help!


These motors normally use a sintered-bronze, graphite embedded bearing. They are normally pretty reliable but they can get clogged with a combination of graphite and contaminants from the air.
I would first try getting some WD-40 or other penetrating lubricant on the motor shafts if you can see them. It would work best if the fan was running if you can safely get some spray onto the shafts' ends.
BTW, WD-40 is not a lubricant and evaporates fairly quickly so isn't good for sewing machines for example. A resin-free light oil such as 3-in-1 is much better; it doesn't evaporate fast or leave sticky residue when it gets old.
