Re: tip over switch

Might seem like an unusual way to reset a switch but try gently banging the base on a flat object. a tilt switch has to be mounted on a pivot of some sorts. it is probably a mercury switch. take the base apart and see if the pivoting switch is free to move.

TRN0812T does not turn on anymore

Put your hear at the thermostat. Move the dial with length. Can you hear an it click on and off?
Try another outlet. Is the outlet working?
Tilt it to the floor and back (safety to shut off if tilted).
There is not much to a heater. Element on/off switches. Thermostat. Tip over safety switch.
Noting meant to be repaired. Give it a good smack before throwing it away.

Hello I have a Holmes HS700 and it has been great until now. I was trying to dry something by tilting the heater but then realized it turned off each time I tilted it. Needless to say after a few...

Ed, try turning OFF the Master ON/OFF Switch and unplugging the unit. Wait 12-15 minutes and plug it back in. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls as you normally do. Hopefully the heater reset itself turn that 12-15 minute timeout. In the future don't tilt the heater and activate the tilt switch. Its like a Pin Ball Machine, you loose your turn if you tilt it.

Hope that helps to solve your problem.

My heater won't turn off ... the thermostat is uh524ta or qmark581320500000. Can you help with a replacement thermostat? David

fan motor control switches are set for 130 degrees to start and stop the fan, yours is fused shut so the fan will not turn off, there will be 2 such units in your heater the other is the high limit gas cut off switch locate your fan switch usually has an egg shape with a screw or nut holding on each tab,,so 2 screws or nuts, mark the locations the wires connect to the switch, some have a 3 wire unit, bring the faulty switch to a local plumbing and heating outlet and simply match yours to any available unit in the temp range yours is set to or 130 degree limit, and also has the same wire count, should be around 15 bucks or so good luck

Limit switch will not reset automaticly after power outage. no heat just fan with power comes back on.

The limit switch and the power outage should not be related. However if the switch is not reseting after a 30 degree drop it should be replaced.

if the switch at the top of unit is tripping there is something wrong with the vent , the switch is set at 350 degrees it detects back draft do to a improper vent or blockage of vent, if the installer use the old vent system that is more than likley the problem, have the installer call Cozy tech line at 502-589-5380 so they can go over how the unit is installed.

The tilt switch no longer works

if the unit will still heat when held at angle that would cause it to tip over if let go, the contacts in the tilt switch are stuck shut. switch should be replaced before further use as this is a safety/fire hazard.

Default temperature settings

if it is anything like a monitor - look on the right side bottom for a slider - reset temperature adjust. just move the slider to a lower temperature. if you have a power outage, the display starts to flash 88:88
