Timex Timer model no 12/874

I bought this last year and lost the instructions. I remembered that I needed to plug it in to charge. I did that for about 32 hours. Still not working. LED is blank, no matter what buttons I push. Can you help?

Sorry, there really isn't a product catagory that fits this.

Take the remote unit apart and find the NiCd battery pack. It may need changing. If it won't charge then one or more cells are not accepting a charge and the others won't charge as well. There are sites on the web that sell replacements for a number of units.

I have a holmes model#hwh2605 heater that i think got cracked when it got knocked down &is leaking now.And now isnt heating right and then shuts off automatically. Can i refill it or is it junk?

Turn the heater so that the leak is at the top. Clean the area around the leak down to the metal and seal the leak with Pratley Steel Paste or equivalent. Leave the paste to dry for a few hours and refill the unit. Remember not to fill it right to the top as you have to leave space for the liquid to expand when it gets hot.If you do not leave space for expansion It will blow the heating elements.
If you cleaned it properly and mixed the two pastes as per instructions, Is should last for years to come.

I bought a Sunbeam Heating Pad (Ultraheat) last year which I just took it out of the box last night. It is brand new, not used until last night and it smell like it was burning. I instantly unplugged it....

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

i think from sitting in the box for a year, the material can smell, form its first time usage.
I suggest you put the pad on or in a baking dish on the stove..plug in and see if the smell burns off. I think it will.

if not return to Sunbeam (800) 435-1250

Doesn't heat up as first bought three years ago.

Not unless it leaks oil on the floor. The oil has nothing to do with heating, your unit is actually an electric heater with oil added as "thermal ballast."

The first suspect is the plug that you plug into the wall. These sometimes overheat and electrical continuity is lost.

Solution: new plug from the hardware store. Cut off the old one and take it with you so you can get something very similar. Don't do anything if you're not comfortable with handyman-level electrical repairs.

Next suspect is the cord itself. These have a hard life on electric heaters.

After that you're inside the unit. First suspect is the thermostat, since it's the only moving part. A burned out heating element, or a burned wire connection, is possible, but not the first thing to look for.

Generally, this kind of heater often lasts for years and years--and often doesn't. Once you're past replacing the plug it's not unlikely that repair will cost more than a new heater.

I'm not shilling for Home Ripoff, but they have a $60 "baseboard" (type) heater with remote control that I'm looking at, I've read good reviews about it. However look closely, it's very long, and sticks out from the baseboard more than you might expect.

Please can you tell me if it is energy efficient to use an electric timer on a small domestic unvented hot water system or is it best left on continually

with a newer hot water heater (manufactured in the last few years) it works rather well as the newer models are better insulated than the old ones were

it is also very important to make sure the timer is rated for the load of the water heater. Using a timer that is not rated for the load can cause a fire.

Make sure that you start the timer early enough to have the water be hot when you need it.

How do I turn the timer off my Creda slim line panel heater ? keeps coming on when not required. I have lost my instruction booklet. Many thanks bev

You can stop the unit coming on by turning the temperature dial down to as low as it will go. Also it could be turned off at the wall if all else fails and there is a plug point.

Bionaire BSH3818 Heater Instructions

I think on that particular model you just set the timer and it will run automatically until the timer runs out. Sometimes if you go to the manufacturer's website you can download the user manual, or at least get a phone number to call and request a manual be sebt to you. hope this helps!

I had the same problem...and I accidentally discovered the solution...

One thing you have to remember is that the temperature that is shown on the screen is actually the room temperature and not the "wind" temperature.

To set the "wind" temperature, press the "m" button (aka temp/timer) should show a flashing thermostat and the temperature screen changes to show the default "wind" temperature (it's 74 degrees)...

Next use the "down" button to the right of the screen to reduce the wind temperature to the desired temperature and that's all you have to do. IMPORTANT: if you wish to increase or decrease the temperature of the "wind" you just use the "up" or "down" button; DO NOT HIT "m" again since if you hit "m" again, it will cycle through the "timer" and then "temp" again, and it will reset the "wind" temperature to the default 74 degrees.
