Heh, I just went searching for mine because it was getting cold. The left knob is (from left to right) Hi, Lo, and Fan Only. The right knob goes from Off on the bottom left to Hi on the right. It doesn't click or anything, since it's the one controlling how hot you want it to be.

I have provided a link to the Owner's Manual, that you can download and print for future reference. Please pay close attention to Page # 6 -Pre-Service Check List and Fault Finding. Each problem listed has a troubleshooting solution.

SOURCE: badger disposal has power, inside

When you turn it with the allen wrench, does it move a quarter turn fairly freely, then stop abruptly? If so there is something stuck in there. (Like a hard piece of bone, or glass but probably metal) Have a helper work the allen wrench while you look down in there with a nice bright light. On the other hand, if it moves a quarter turn but is very hard to turn for that quarter turn, then I am afraid you have some kind of fiber (string, fabric, or tendon) wrapped around the shaft where it would be very hard to get to. If that is the case, you might try removing and plugging the drain hose (that goes to the sink trap) and using some drain cleaner and letting it soak for a while --- but that is tricky because you will have to drain it out the hose wearing rubber gloves and full face protection. Good luck, Al K

I have a Big Maxx heater and it won't stop blowing and won't heat. The fan just keeps running! Anyone know what could be wrong?


Your pressure switch may not be activating (ie closing and making contacts) This means you could have a blocked flue, clogged pressure switch tube or a bad pressure switch. The pressure switch is a safety feature to ensure your exhaust is not blocked and operating correctly. Find owners manual. Look at trouble shooting section. Open cabinet and look for error code light. If blinking 3 times, try "jumping" the pressure switch. To jump pressure switch you need to clear code be turning off power. When the unit/thermostat calls for heat the power vent fan starts first, this is when you need to jump the pressure switch. You need to do this in sequence. That is the unit first starts the power vent exhaust thus activating the pressure switch allowing the ignition cycle to the burners and heat. So the power vent fan needs to start first BEFORE you put the jumper on to bypass the pressure switch. Once the jumper is on it will call for ignition after approx 30 seconds. If ignites your problem is one of the 3 stated at the opening of this paragraph

I have no heat replace tthermostat,anitifreeze,the hose , I have good air cominng out of the vents last years I had a small bit of heat when I turn on the heat but this year none. what do you think It is?


Assuming the car does not overheat (Ruling out the water pump), I would look for something not opening the heater door. I think this car uses a pneumatic system to open the door for the fan to blow air over the heater core. If that door does not open, you won't get any heat. You probably have a cracked or broken pnuematic line behind the dash that controls the door.

I do not have the manual to my fan forced heater (model HF-0034) and I am not sure how to work it. It keeps shutting off after a few seconds of heat. Then it will turn on again in 10 minutes and back off...


A lot of this, may be caused by the temperature setting and where the heater is placed. If the temperature is not set high enough, as opposed the ambient room temperature, it probably only turns ON briefly. Also, if the heater is placed near a heat source or in direct sun light, it's sensing the temperature from those sources, rather than the room air.

Try moving it to a another location and setting the temperature on the unit a bit higher.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know.

Not staying lit


Remove the front panel and tape down the door safety switch so the unit can turn on when door is off. Turn up thermostat to make sure there is a call for heat. The circuit board should indicate a call for heat with either a blinking light or a solid light. Then the exhaust fan should turn on clearing the venting from any fumes. When the fan has ran for a few seconds, the igniter should start glowing orange. After it reaches a predetermined temperature, the gas valve should open with a click. The flame will start at the burner closest to the igniter and travel away from the igniter. There is a small flame rod located in the flame path on the last burner that tells the circuit board it feels the flame. If the flame goes off within a few seconds of starting, you have a dirty flame rod. Clean it with a scotch-brite pad. Once you get the flame to stay on for 90 seconds or so, the room air blower will turn on. If it tries 2 or 3 times to start but does not, the circuit board will record a code and display it with a blinking light. Look on the door panel for a wiring diagram. There will also be a Diagnostic chart that will tell you what the pattern of blinking lights represent.

Good Luck!

Hello,Next is make sure the thermostat is set for ELECTRIC heat.In the back there is a dip switch or sometimes a small jumper that MUST be set to ELECTRIC setting.It will give a choice GAS/ELEC it needs to be set ELEC to bring on the BLOWER on a call for heat.It doese'nt matter if you have gas or oil or wood for fuel.

Rheem RHQA Heater:Blower works but no heat.


Is there a setting on the thermostat for Auto or Fan? If so, make sure it is in the Auto setting. You will have a contactor that turns on the elements and a relay for the fan. Follow the wiring diagram to see which relay energizes the fan then unplug it to see if the fan stops.

A solid red light


If you have the economy button on turn it off. If there is a draft around the room sensor it will read much lower than the room. That should make the heater run wide open all the time however. Make sure the screens and fan blades are spotless. When it is 4 degrees outside your heater may be working very hard to try to heat the room.

Stay warm,

Can someone please tell me what is the lowest temperature setting a Fahrenheat 3000 Watt Large Room Fan-Forced Wall Heater Model FZL3004 will turn on at ?


about the only way I can figure is to let the room get very cool and adjust the thermostat to its lowest setting. now turn on the unit. monitor the heat until the stat just opens. the thermostat bimetal will be closed and will open when the bimetal expands and opens its contacts. another way is to hitch up a chart recorder to measure temperature with its output connected to the heater. [too expensive for you or the DIY to accomplish]

Not enought heat


I have the same heater and it works great in my bedroom (with a door). the room is about 12 x 14. For my living room and dining area I use 2 or 3 oscillating, ceramic, fan forced heaters spaced out.

As you say, logically...since heat rises, the heat comes off the top. Only 3 things that I can think of would make that heater not work: First, a factory defect (it doesn't heat period). Second, if you have it a room that is too large for that size heater. Third, if the room has no doors (such as a living room).

If you have a draft it can work to your advantage. By placing the heater in line with the draft it will actually accelerate the heat exchange process and distribute the heat faster for you.
