Fan on my big buddy heater just stopped working changed batteries still not working?tried the switch nothing .i only have radiant heat.

I would first check the wiring connections to fan and get a multi meter , set on 12 volts dc and see if fan motor has 12 vdc input voltage.
Too cheap to buy a voltage tester at wal mart ot harbor frieght, you can use a 12 volt bulb and socket, if you already have one. Remove fan wires & hook up 12 volt light bulb & if it lights, you got the juice. Carefull,dont let live wires touch because you short out $26.00 big buddy fan transformer. work with fan transformer unplugged from wall and dont plug in until you sure no wires touch.
use electrical or duct tape. electrical tape better.

otherwise,just buy the multi meter, they only $8.00 to $10.00
read & understand instructions, before you try to use it. otherwise,you could burn out your new meter.

well worth owning &
learning to use multi meter. I use it thousands of times.

if fan motor has juice but wont run, check fan shaft to see if it turns freely or scrapes or is stuck. oil fan motor bearings ,change the brushes.
make sure that the fan blades are not touching the fan housing and can turn freely.
if it still dont work, buy new fan motor.
if no juice at fan motor, check mr heater switch with the power off,unplug transformer from the wall or remove batteries.,
and use the ohm meter setting of the multi- meter to test for continuity of the switch when the switch is in the on position.
power must be off when using the ohm setting of a multimeter.
if power is on & using the ohm setting of the multi meter, you will blow out the multimeter. The ohm setting uses a 1.5 volt dc battery inside the multimeter to test for a compleated circuit.
so, 12volts dc would blow it out on ohms setting.
If the switch is good,reinstall it on mr.heater and test the output of the transformer or battery compartment using the 20 volt dc scale of the multi meter. the voltage scale you select ,must be higher than the voltage you expect to find ,in order to avoid damage to the multi meter.
observe polarity,positive to red and negative to black.

the dc voltmeter setting is totally polarity sensitive and a reversed hook up could blow out the meter.
multi meter means it can read ac volts, dc volts,ohms and dc amps. Read and understand the included instructions before using a multi meter
a good single battery in new condition reads 1.62volts dc
1.5 vdc is almost dead, a good used battery reads 1.58 to 1.6 vdc
below 1.58 vdc is weak battery and 1.48 vdc is usually totally dead, but may be enough for momentary usage under 1 minute.

I am working in our plastic injection molding machine.i already ordered new heater bands for the injection?still, the nozzle part didn't heat up and it says on the computer that''the heater wires are...

hi there,
well! its good if you know how to use multi tester,set multi tester on volt setting to test how does your voltage supply from the terminal of heater of the nozzle.,if it was supplied by 120v or 220v,what ever you get result relay the heater specification to the voltage reading you get from should relay on actual data in order not to confuse. heater are connected in series with the temperature control or thermostat check this one if the heater terminal are has no current flowing or no voltage supply.Also you can check the relay where the line connection of heaters are connected.hope you solve the problem now rate me and let me know if heater not work just log in to fixya.

I was wondering what size of wire is required to hook up a 1500 w baseboard heater.

You would need at least 1.5mm with 2mm preferable Cable.
1500Watts is 13 AMPS at 115Volts So you are going to need Industrial 3 core that can handle min 15 Amps @ 115V. Make sure you get fireproof cable too.

My heater makes this constipating noise and the "tilt" alarm goes off after 10 minutes. I'm never able to turn it to the high position.

This is the answer I got from Presto. I cleaned it with window cleaner, wooden spoon and paper towels. Dish works great now.

Buzzer sounds when heater:
- is tipped
- rests uneven on floor
- is too close to furniture or wall
- has too much dust on parabolic dish
The most common reason is that the parabolic dish is dusty.
To clean the heater:
1. Unplug the heater and clean it when it is cool
2. Spray a cloth with an all-purpose cleaner such as 409
3. Wrap the cloth around a long handle such as a wooden spoon
4. Wipe between the grate from the outer edge to the center
If you have further questions, please let me know. Or call us at 1-800-877-0441 Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central Time.

Check on the heater coil using the multi-tester. Set it at Ohms 1 x 10 position.
1. Switch it off and disconnect it .
2. Disassemble the electric heater.
3. Put the multi-tester probe (red and black) at each
end of the heater coil.
4. If the reading is almost zero, then it is okey.
Otherwise, you have to replace it.
5. Then, reassemble the electric heater.
6. Plug it back to the electric outlet, and switch on.

I ran it for four months straight and the ground side from the outlet burned up all the way through the unit. Can it be the power source?

What has happened is drawing to much amperage over time this happens with these type heaters. Your power source (was) probably ok, if this was plugged into a 110/120volt outlet and your heater is rated to push 1500watts you would need 12.5amps just to run that, on a normal 20 amp breaker you can only get 16 amps out of it before they start to trip. So if you was running the heater and also other devises on that same line, that would have caused your problem. For those type of heaters i always have a designated line ran for them because of this problem. I would take your out let out KILL POWER FIRST and visually inspect the connections. Hope this helps you

The heater will not ignite properly and the heater will not shut off

Judging by your pics (helpful, by the way) you have a high limit wired into your thermostat wire. Try disconnecting that wire nut connection in front of your valve and hooking the thermostat straight to the top and bottom posts on the valve (eliminating the high limit). If it runs fine, either the connection was poor or your high limit wire is pinched.

the pilot light is operated off a millivolt generator. that is the small tube directly in the pilot flame. its purpose is to generate a small dc current which is connected to the pilot valve inside the main valve. setting the control to pilot opens just the pilot gas supply. when operating normally the millivolt generator keeps a small electromagnet pulled in that keeps the pilot gas supply open. if it don't work the pilot gas supply valve closes. replace the thermocouple.
