    my heater does the same thing

  • NeonCities Oct 23, 2008

    The problem seems to be a bad thermostat inside the heater, possibly overheating because of the way it is housed. It overheats, and shuts the heater off even though you've not reached desired temperature. Has Honeywell done a recall?

    My heater turns on for about a minute maybe two minutes and then shuts off and then about 5 minutes later it will turn on again for 30 seconds to a min. I can't heat the room if its not staying on.

    my heater turns on and after 2 minutes it turns off with a click sound. i unplug it until i hear another click, plug it back on and it works again.. but the whole thing starts all over again.. LoL.. then one day it actually went on for more than 2 minutes.. so i left it on for hours. After that, i turned it off and unpluged it.. heard a click but ignored it. After a few hours i turned it on and it didn't work.. i shook it.. swore a few times but nothing worked. Now for some odd reason it's working again.. aaarrrrggghhh.. This heater sucks!

    Mine is on the floor next to my cat, and I know some cat hair got in there, so I'm wondering if it's shutting off so it doesn't overheat and catch on fire. I don't know, but it worked great until yesterday!!! Now my room is freezing!

Had the same problem. The cause: The coils have too much dust on them.
Soultion: Take the bottom of the base off and clean/vacuum. While the base is off, you also have access to the interior of the heater. Remove the 2 screws on the bottom front, then the 2 on the bottom back. The plastic panels will come off and you'll have access to all internal areas. Just clean thoroughly and you should be good to go. You wouldn't realize it, but even with a spotless house, the heater will **** any small particle of dust.

    How do you get the bottom off? Specifically those black screws?


They will replace it if you call the number in the manual

Heater keeps turning on & off but no heat

What type of heater are we talking about? if its the home furnance, it sounds like the ignitor is coming on and shutting back down, the heat comes on ignite and the blower comes on like normal, then after a few minutes it will shut down, you will have to remove the ignitor, clean it with a little piece of sand paper to remove the carbon build-up, replace the ignitor and turn the furnance back on, this should correct the problem.

My honeywell heater was working one minute and not working the next.

HI I have this heater and no manual , and I was doing research on the internet and found that these haeters have an automatic shut off if it gets too hot and it wont come back on for a while until it is cooled down. I just unplug mine awhile or turn it off and then it comes back on when it cools down.

Heater won't stay on

This product does indeed have a problem with the safety switch, that is only supposed to kick in when the unit is turned over. I had a total of 3 units sent to me from Kaz. Each time the unit would work for a short time, then slowly begin to turn off and on. I finally decided to take the unit apart and look for any obvious problems. There is a weighted swivel that will raise a contact point to turn the unit off in an emergency. The contact points would spark off and on, depositing a black carbon on them until they would no longer allow power to pass through. I cleaned the contacts with a fine finger nail file and bent one of the contact arms inward to make better tension between the contacts. This allowed the unit to stay on for longer periods of time. But even with the thermo-stat turned all the way up, the unit does not stay on long enough to heat the room. In effect, what happens is the contacts will continue to ark, putting black deposits on the contacts until you're back to square one. Apparently the unit also has a thermo-stat related problem. I'm sending the unit back again (they only made me send the power cord last time), but will insist on a different model this time. Good Luck

Heat turns off

Sounds like the high limit switch on the heater is kicking off. The flash is the switch shutting off the heating element. The only way to reset it is to turn unit off for about 5 minutes. Possible problems are: 1.) Bad thermostat 2.) blower motor not turning fast enough which means motor is bad.

Honeywell HZ7040 shuts off after few minutes

This sounds like a theromostat problem. If you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the heater and look for the theromostat. A lot of times you can buy replacement at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Good luck!
