Question about Marvin Quartz Radiant Heater
While the original poster's unit may have been defective/damaged, even a properly-working Marvin 5460 can become noisy over time, as the fan will tend to become loose just through normal wear. My own heater developed an annoying fan rattle after 3+ years of fairly heavy winter use (4-5 months per year); eventually it was loud enough to be distracting.
Anyone else facing the same problem will be happy to know that Marvin designed these models very well. A loose/rattling fan can easily be fixed in seconds using only a screwdriver, without even opening the heater. (You should unplug it and let it cool first, of course, just to be safe.)
On the underside of the heater casing, pretty much dead-center, are a pair of screws side-by-side, about two inches apart. On my unit, they're a brassy color that clearly sets them apart from the case screws (which are silver). Those are the screws that secure the fan to the mounting bracket inside the heater. Simply hand-tighten both firmly, and that should eliminate any rattling or noise caused by a loose fan!
