Honeywell heater turns off after 3 min. Never comes back on

My honeywell fan and heater turns off after 3 min. And never comes back on , the orange light glows with a false sence of warmth. My room was freezing. Now I have a head cold. And I blame honeywell overheat protection thingy in the heater. I just want a little warmth, now I have a stupid heater that never works past 3 minutes. I guess you can un plug it and restart it but , it would be nice to have the heater come on a few times a night by it self. Oh well my heater sucks. Im going to take it apart and try and rig it

It sounds like the temperature sensor has either failed or come loose and is sitting too close to the heating coil. Alternatively, the level-sensor, which shuts off the heater when it is tilted, may be malfunctioning.
If the heater is not sitting level, it will also shut itself off.
In any case, if it is under warranty, return to the manufacturer. If it isn't, a local appliance repair shop should be able to isolate the problem.

Honeywell Chronotherm iv fan keeps running even when heat and cool turned off. How do I turn it off?

To turn the fan off, press the "fan key" until it says "auto". This will turn the fan off. When the programs scheduled, changes, the fan will go on again. You have to repeat the fan to "auto" each time the schedule changes.

Honeywell RTH 7500d is not working.

If nothing is happening then I am wondering about tje power... If you have access to a digital meter, you should have 24v a/c across the R wire and the C wire...
Did you make sure to turn off the power at the air handler or furnace before unhooking the wires at the t-stat??? If not then you have blow a fuse in the control board or burnt out the transformer...

If you have power on R then jumper to G and the fan shoudl come on... if it does then the t-stat is bad...

This should give you a few things to try and is what I would be doing if it were my service call...

My heating/cooling blower (not the outside unit but the fan in the garage) does not turn off, even when my Honeywell TH8000 is set on automatic. What can I do to have the fan motor shut off?

try hard wiring your 24 volt that goes to the outside unit to the yellow wire coming back from your thermostat make sure the yellow wire is on the yellow terminal on the thermostat (honeywell) i have run into situations when this seemed to be the only thing that worked
