The reset is probably an inline circuit breaker. if you can get hold of am amprobe clamp around ammeter, check the current when the unit is running at full power. the reading you get check against the current rating of the inline breaker. your fan motor bearings may be dry increasing the current draw of the unit and tripping the breaker. try oiling the fan bearings with a light oil NOT WD-40.

Sounds like a bad temperature control switch. If it looks like it can be replaced, check with Johnstone or Grainger Supply company to match it up. Google it for their websites.

Thermostat for Fahrenheat 5000Watt Ceiling mount heater


You could do it. It would mean serious wiring though and you should use the factory thermostat because it is designed to operate on 240 Volts. Or you could use a remote thermostat at low voltage to throw a relay in the heater and get it to come on. The manual has good diagrams on how it is wired and it would not be too hard to do. IT would operate just like the outside unit on an HVAC system .

Can someone please tell me what is the lowest temperature setting a Fahrenheat 3000 Watt Large Room Fan-Forced Wall Heater Model FZL3004 will turn on at ?


about the only way I can figure is to let the room get very cool and adjust the thermostat to its lowest setting. now turn on the unit. monitor the heat until the stat just opens. the thermostat bimetal will be closed and will open when the bimetal expands and opens its contacts. another way is to hitch up a chart recorder to measure temperature with its output connected to the heater. [too expensive for you or the DIY to accomplish]
