Bionaire BH3950 Does not heat

My heater just wont heat, the power light is on but the appliance will not produce any heat even if it is turned on to high. On the opposite side it has instructions in case it shuts off. It says to turn mode to OFF and thermostat to high, unplug and then wait 30 minutes. After that you plug it back in and turn mode to on and tara! it should work... Well I did that exactly more than 10 times already and it doesn't do anything for this heater to work back again. I don't know whatesle to do. Please help!!!

    Just bought mine, took out of the box, and the green light won't come on, hence, the heater isn't working. I'm taking this piece back tomorrow and getting something else. I am freezing.

    Same problem as Pocahontasz. No heating at all despite the lights being on. Only used it one season, too, and lightly at that. I'm guessing the thermostat might be no good but maybe I'll plug it again to see if I can hear any "clicks" as the thermostat is kicking in.

I'm not an expert, but I have two of these units that are working fine.

The on/off switch (the top switch) has a light in it that illuminates when the heater is on and heating. If this light comes on and there is no heat, then the element is probably burned out.

The heater has a safety switch that prevents the unit from working if it is not upright. If the heater was stored for any length of time on its side, the safety switch might have stuck in the off position. Unplug the heater and with the heater upright, try shaking it or slapping it firmly with your hand to se if this fixes the problem.

If none of this works, then as sunmasc says, the thermostat is bad.

The thermostat seems to be faulty or the heating element is burnt out.

My Bionaire BCH9221um wont turn on.


You might want to open it up and check the thermal fuse. This is usually a small cylindrical device with a cone at one end and wire leads coming out of both ends. It opens permanently when it gets over a certain temperature, and sometimes will open prematurely. Check it for continuity with an Ohmmeter. If it is open, then it is the problem. You can usually read the temperature, or a part number on the side. Look it up on the web, or go to your local electronics parts store. You can get one for a buck or two. Replace it by crimping it on to the wires, do not attempt to solder it, as the heat will likely destroy it.

Good Luck.

Turn the Master switch to OFF and plug the heater and leave unplugged for 30 minutes, That should give it time to reset itself. If it doesn't work after that, it's probably fried.

Polohunt1@aol.com my bionaire bch9221 120 volt heater does not produce heat anymore.....i'm thinking that maybe an element within the unit is burned out.


Mine was doing the same thing. Took it apart and found that the white wire which hooked up from the circuit board to the heating element had burnt which broke the connection...hence no heat....replaced burnt wire and resoldered to heating element...put it back together and voila I have heat once more....still doesn't solve why the wire fried though....

Heater won't turn on, the lights keep flashing.


HI There is a product recall for this particular model of heater, you can search the internet for details on how to get the item collected by Bionair and get a full refund, these are a fire risk.
