Heater won't come on

Heater won't come and heat up

    I have a Honeywell Baseboard Heater, Model Nr. HZ-517, which is similar to Model: HZ-519. It was working just fine, until this morning when I attempted to turn it ON. The Power-ON light doesn't light, and there is no click when the Power ON button is pushed. No advanced warnings...

    Where can I purchase the special screwdriver needed to remove the cover of the unit, and where can I get an electrical diagram for it?

    I'll appreciate any help!!!

Its difficult to make a homeowner an expert in troubleshooting his/her equipment if he/she has no technical background - but - I will try. First check the cord to plug connection. Is it tight? Does it look melted? Next, take the unit apart where the cord goes into the unit. Check the wiring path. Look at each connection. Look for burnt off wires at connections. Most connectors are the push on type and are mechanically fastened to the wires. if they are burned off you'll need replacement spade terminals and a crimping tool. (radio shack) has these. one wire will go through a thermostat and out to an element terminal. one wire may go through a thermodisc overload, then to the thermostat and then to the element. the other wire will definitely go straight to the element. there may be some extra connections for lights etc. if you have to take apart the heater make a diagram of which wires go where. use some masking tape with numbers written on it to make sure the wires go back to the same place you took them off.

Why won’t my edenpure heater throw heat even though I changed all the heat elements

It could be a fuse. They are small look kinda like a metal diode. Unplug heater, disconnect one side of power wire and do a continuity check on the heat strip circuit. You can also plug it in and do a voltage check on the two wires connected to the heat strip. Do this to see if you are getting voltage to the strips. Some heaters have safety switches that disconnect power when the heater falls over. It's a free swinging switch that might not have reset.
