Heater comes on but quickly over heats.

Holmes model HCT460-U. The heater comes on but quickly over heats. The fans seems to be working when it comes on. Is there a filter on this heater which needs to be cleaned periodically? I have a Holmes utility heater model HCT460-U. The heater comes on but quickly over heats and shuts off. The fan is working, it seems to blow warm air. Is there a filter on this model which needs to be cleaned. If so where on the heater would it be located.

There is no Filter On this Model. Check to make sure there is Dirt in the Flow way of the two towers. if that is not it the back up fuse in the heater is going bad.

Space heater stops working after 2-3 minutes


The problem is most likely the over heating sensor thermostat located directly under the heating elements - The reason the over-heat safety thermostat sensor is tripping the warning buzzer is because either the cool air fan intake is obstructed with dust / dirt, or the fan motor stopped rotating, or the over-heating condition thermostat is defective, or over sensitive - Usually when the cool air intake is obstructed for any reason, the heating elements will glow brighter, and hotter without good air flow, and the elements may start to bow downwards closer to the over-heating safety thermostat - However, if the safety thermostat is defective, it can trigger the warning buzzer even though there may not be an over-heating condition / event present - The buzzer warning going off prematurely also occurred with my Holmes space heater - I checked the air flow first, and then the appliance tip-over switch second - Both were found functioning properly - It wasn't until I replaced the safety over-heating thermostat, did the buzzer stop going off moments after I plugged the space heater in an outlet.

Heater won't stay on, I heard there was a recall on this item.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
I am only answering part of your question (Recall) so do not rate the post so other experts can help you with your heater won't stay on problem.
Your heater model is not one of the 4 models that were recalled.

The recall involves Holmes® models HFH6498-U, HFH6500-U and HFH6500TG-U and Bionaire® model BFH3530-U. The recalled heaters also have date codes beginning with 2604 through 3804 for all units, except for Holmes® model 6500TG-U, which has date codes ranging from 2604 through 4704. The model and date code can be found on the silver label on the back of the unit. The heater fans are 26 inches tall; come in all gray, two-tone gray, or black and gray; and have either the word Holmes® or Bionaire® printed on the front of the base.

I think the warrenty on this heater is one year. If the heater housing and cord are not overheating then I would remove back panel and clean fiter and brush,vacumn,or use compressed air to clean motor and fan blades. It's possible that if you have not been using very much that it's just burning off debris and causing the smell. I hope this helps you. Thanks

Heater wont run on hi and doesn't get warm at all


One of two things here. You blew an internal fuse or the heating element is broken. Take your unit apart and check for bad fuses and also check that the heating coil has continuity. Let me know how you make out.
