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!

I would guess that the element is burned out. As these are a relatively inexpensive item I would not waste a lot of time or effort trying to repair it. I hope this helps you. Thanks

Do they have a fan in them. If they do then the noise maybe coming from a bent fan blade. If you are mecahanically inclined then I would go into it and see. That would be the only moving part in the thing other than the tip over thing inside. I hope this helps

Intermittent heater control Marvin 2060


On Monday, 1/21/08, I returned the Marvin 2060 heater to the store I purchased in 02/07 since the freeze guard stop working. The owner left me a voice message at home and said he after doing some research, he discovered Marvin went out of business in 12/07.
And the heater is no longer covered under the warranty. The owner gave me a telephone number, 800.326.3690 which carry the parts for Marvin Heater. I have not called the number since I am looking for another heater with the freeze guard feature since it something I need quickly.
