Re: honeywell surround heater shuts off

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.

There is a thermal disc inside the heater that will tell the heater if it is getting too hot to shut down. When the disc cools off then the heater will start up again. After a wile the disc gets weak or it gets stuck open not allowing the heater to turn on. You will need to replace the disc or purchase a new heater as parts for those are not easy to find.

good luck

When I turn the heat up on my thermostat, the gas turns on, ignites, blower kicks in, everything is running fine. After about 10 minutes, the whole thing shuts off, never having reached the desired...

Sounds as if the overload switch is turning it off, either because the burner chamber is overheating or the overload switch needs to be replaced. When you turn it off and then back on, the switch resets itself.

Problem with used honeywell surround HZZ 2200. run for a minute then shut off.

the way i got mine to run is by pulling off the thermostat knob and then grab the pin and turn it the same way as to turn it up it will loosen it seems it has a mechanical thermostat and its pressure based so adjust it as needed and you can even put the knob back on ... gl
personally i just removed the pin entirely so it runs non stop dunno if that disables any safety features .....

Honeywell heater turns off after 3 min. Never comes back on

It sounds like the temperature sensor has either failed or come loose and is sitting too close to the heating coil. Alternatively, the level-sensor, which shuts off the heater when it is tilted, may be malfunctioning.
If the heater is not sitting level, it will also shut itself off.
In any case, if it is under warranty, return to the manufacturer. If it isn't, a local appliance repair shop should be able to isolate the problem.

Oil filled heater wont stay on

I was having the same problem and did a search to find this link. This morning when I turned it on, I backed the temperature down to 66 when it first came on (defaults to 70) and it appears to be working now (it's been on for over 10 minutes)

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.

Honeywell Surround HZ2200 / HZ2204 /

A link to an Adobe (Acrobat) Reader format (.pdf) owner's manual for Honeywell® (Mini Tower) SURROUND HEAT™ HEATER FAN Models HZ-2200 (charcoal) and HZ-2204 (white) is here.

Some text from the manual:

• The Surround Heat™ Heater is designed to
disperse heat in either a 360° range or in one direction only.
• To select the desired heating mode, slide the Direction Control switch, located
on the top of the heater, to the position of your choice:
– to the right (full circle) for 360° Heating
– to the left (half circle) for forward only heating (One Direction

Select the appropriate heat dispersion mode. (See
Set-Up instructions.)
• With the Power knob in the OFF position, plug the
heater into a polarized 120V outlet.
• Turn the Thermostat control fully clockwise to the
HIGH setting.
• Turn the heater on using the Child Resistant switch
(Power knob). To operate the switch, push down
the two sides of the Power knob while turning it
clockwise to the desired position. The power
light will illuminate. The Child Resistant switch helps
ensure that the heater can not be turned on accidentally.
• When the room reaches a comfortable temperature, slowly turn the Thermostat
control counter-clockwise until the heater goes off. This is the point at which the
Thermostat setting equals the room temperature. At this setting, the Thermostat
will automatically turn the heater on and off to maintain this selected temperature.
• Push down and turn the Power knob to OFF and unplug the heater when you
are finished using it.

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!
