Question about Bionaire BH3900-U Oil Filled Radiator Heater
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!!!
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.
