Presto Quartz Heater element 1500 watts

I have one of these heaters and it has worked great for years.  It is kind of a tower and has two heating elements in it but one of them is cracked. Is there anyway to replace the element? I cannot find them anywhere.  I believe that it is about 17" long.

    I inherited my Mom's Presto Heater and unfortunately it needs elements, too. If anyone finds a source, please let me know. Great heater!

    My mother bought a PRESTO Quartz heater @ 20 years ago. She LOVES IT, but she needs to buy a couple quartz heating tubes. She has a couple on one side that does not work. I would like to know how & where to get these needed tubes.

    yup, same issue... need 1 of the two elements from my early '80's Presto quartz heater. Is a fantastic unit and i still use it w/just the one element working. I contacted Presto and they say they don't make replacement parts for it. Sounds like a great buisness opportunity for somebody out there :)

    Anyone ever hears of something, let me know.

    The source of supply no longer has a 16.5 " quartz elements available, Is there any other suppliers that these elements can be purchased?

    I have the same heater and cannot find an element. Does anyone have the Marvin website or a number to order a element.

I have one of these heaters it sound like the same unit. How do you know how many watts it is putting out? I didnt see a UL listing tag on it. The cord is not very heavy duty. Question is my heater possibly less than 1000 watts? If it is the same one that these people are looking for parts could I split the elements sell them to two different people and make three people happy? Would anyone interested send me a photo of their heater, and any other information to see if mine is the same.
That is my proposed solution to this issue, Please forward me any photos or information in regards to this heater.
Please forward e-mails to:
Thank you inadvance;

We have a Presto quartz heater and have gotten replacement tubes from: National Presto Industries, Inc., P. O. Box 1172, Eau Claire, WI 54702-1172
In 2004 the cost was 26.00 for two (S&H included). We bought the heater in 1984 and it is still running great - we love it!

Water heating not heating water

The Emmerson W152 is ordinary 1-year warranty 120Volt electric storage water heater, except with bronze tank. The bronze tank will not rust, and therefore tank does not have anode rod, and tank has 5 year warranty.
Actions to take:
1) Check circuit breaker.
2) Emmerson plugs into 120V outlet. See if outlet works for other 120Volt light or can opener.
3) Turn off power and do following:
4) Open cover on water heater, and press in reset button.
If reset will not reset, then replace thermostat with ordinary generic thermostat from hardware store.
5) If reset button is not tripped, test element.
6) Emmerson has 1500 watt element, and correct ohm reading at 120 volts should be around 9.6ohms
7) This element is 7" long, and is also generic, and should be available at hardware, or plumbing supply, or Google-search 'Emerson appliance water heater element.'

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at

Need replacement quartz tube <17" for my Presto

If Presto longer manufacturers or stocks parts for your heater, there may be a good reason for it. Other than they now have a better heater. My best advice is to scarp the heater and purchase a new one, Your model may have had a safety issue.

Is it safe to plug a 1500 watt Marvin quartz radiant heater, model 4940 into the same receptacle as a lamp with a 100 watt bulb ? We had both appliances plugged into the wall and started smelling smoke...

You had a low end cheap receptacle more than likely or possibly a loose wire on the receptacle. You should have #12 wire fed from a 20 amp breaker and a 20 amp spec grade receptacle.

Heater Shuts off at 1500 Watts

Could be a bad element if the heater does not run at all at 1500w.

If it runs a little before stopping, things could just be dirty causing the thermal sensor to shut it off. A good cleaning is needed in that case.

Good Luck,
