Likely a simple switching relay. Doesn't need to be the same one, just needs to do the same thing, AND be energized as well.

SOURCE: the rotary switch off/750/1500 is bad. Marvin 2060

replaced the rotary switch with a double poll single T. this makes the heater a 1500 watt with no 750 watt option.

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.

My Quartz heater is making a buzzing noise, what could that be?


The buzzing noise was coming from the back of hte unit on the lower left side. It may have been a "stuck" switch & tapping on the side seemed to fix it.

Marvin Quartz heater element


Very simple to install the replacement element. Insert one end of the element into the bottom receptacle on either side, press the element down (it's spring-loaded), then slide the top of the element into the center opening of the top receptacle, push to appropriate side (the side of receptacle, same as the bottom), then release. Then do the same with the other element (if both are out).

Loud buzzing after heating up


the buzzing is normal.  there is an element inside the quartz tube much like a filament in a light bulb.  as this heats up it starts to move.  where you have electrical energy you also have magnetism produced. metal objects vibrate when they are in or within a magnetic field. the element is tungsten wire and vibrates off this magnetic field.
