Question about Cozy (W352E) Heater

1 Answer

Thermostat fails every year

I have a cozy dual sided wall heater and every year my thermostat needs to be replaced. I have tried millivolt only thermostats and that does not solve the problem. Should I just stock up on cheap thermostats or is this a known problem?

    Well, that may be true but I've have the mercury type thermostats in this long collection and they fail as well. The only difference is that COZY has recommended a millivolt ONLY style of thermostat. Previously I had been using the combo type. For the millivolt style, my choices are more limited and for the last 2 years these are 'contact' style. It just seems odd that every thermostat I've every had for the last 8 years has needed replacement the following year.

The term "you get what you pay for" applies here. Get a thermostat that at least has a mercury bulb style. the cheap contacts or points style may just need to be cleaned each year. The digital seem to be the best, but there is no need to go over board either. Keep it simple.

    The contact type thermostat usually can be solved by cleaning off the points on the contact. As this is a milli-volt heater, it means just that, its less than 1 volt usually .750. So it doesn't take much to break the path of electricity. During the summer and fall months when the heat is not being used, a layer of dust and or grease can accumulate in the contacts where they meet. A cleaning with a small file, emery cloth, or even fine grit sandpaper will do the job removing the stuff that is preventing the current from going through. Or you can just do as you said and stock up on some thermostats, they are inexpensive compared to the other types. You didn't say if you tried a digital one. The heater itself is a pretty simple system. I don't know of any other part that would cause premature failure of the thermostat, if that is what you were wondering.

make sure you have a millivolt stat and not a 24 volt stat should have a MV on the stat, you can pull the wires off of stat and twist together to get the unit to turn on if it does wrong stat.

What is easy way to replace the thermostate in

Hi, that thermostat should be a wall mount. This heater has only 2 wires and any "Heat only", "millivolt" thermostat will work. Remove the old T-Stat and mount the new one on the wall, only 2 wires and less than a volt so no shock danger, doesn't even matter which wire goes where. Good luck and comment back if you need any help.

Make sure you have a stat that is for a millivolt system, if the stat you have has 24v on it wrong one, need to purchase at a heating wholesaler home depot lowes do not carry them.The stat should have mv for millivolts on the box or stat.

Cozy dual sided wall heater

There isn't much to these things, its either the pilot generator or the gas valve. Or maybe both, try the first, then the second.
