    I also bought this heater last winter and have only used it to take the chill off the room on those really cold mornings. It has only been used for a few hours at a time and not that often. The other day it started to heat but was cold when I turn it off. It will not heat at all now. The lights come on. It has never been tipped over or used for long periods.

    I have this same model number heater and used it only for a very short period of time. Purchased at Walmart and now it does not heat at all. The lights come on and that is all it does.

Instaled new Hampton Maris fan, when turned on loud ticking sound began. Checked connections and did not find any obvious problems

Is the ticking sound the pull chains tapping on the globe? Sometimes when the blades are not balanced then the chains will make a ticking sound.

Was the unit running when it was warm? If it was then you need a tech to look at the sealed system. If it wasnt running then you need to adjust the icemaker ejector blade so its straight up (12 oclock) Thats when it will allow the compressor to come on.

Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 (not FI) funky sound after shut down

Hi, Yes it is an electric fuel pump and the ticking is the pump working. So if you hear the ticking your pump should be OK. After turning off the petcock and running the carbs dry the next time you turn it back on you should leave the kill switch on and turn the key on and wait till the ticking stops, turn the key off and back on and wait for the ticking to stop again. You should do this a couple of times to make sure the system fills. Normally you should always use your kill switch to turn off your engine. Also under normal conditions you will not hear the ticking as it only ticks a couple of times to fill the system once it is full. Good Luck to you, This should Fixya!

Sorry...i joined the first problem

When it is a no start does the engine crank over but not start? if so check the fuel pressure sounds like a fuel pump issue.
