    I have several of these heaters, they work very well however the thermostat could be better designed, it is hard to tell where hi and lo are we usually have to turn it way down about 1/4 from low and it does cycle and the temp varys about 10-12 degrees before it kicks back on, we have had no problem with reliability and it travels down the road heating in a cargo trailer, no failures yet, been using them about 6 years and hundreds of thousands of miles

    I bought the G73 used from a guy at work, he says it was used very little and works good. I wired it up in my garage and it is off more tnan it is on. runs for 2 minutes and off for five. I read in the directions that it will cycle when below 50 degrees, I ask how will it ever get to 50 degrees. I have heated my garage up to 70 with a torpedo heater in addition to the G73. when the torpedo was shut off the temp continued to drop in the garage. By the way the garage is fully insulated with the house on two sides. I left the G73 on at the end of one day when the garge was heated to 65 with the torpedo, and the next day it was 40 in there with an outside temp of 25. Any solutions, could I have some wires mixed up? I checked the eattage jumpers and they are on high.

I just got my G73.  It comes with a new note that says "below 50 degrees the fan will cycle randomly (and might seem like its not working correctly) but once it is above 50 it will cycle normally."  it uses that to let the element re-heat quickly to bring the room up to temp faster.

Check the thermostat settings and try with different settings.
It sounds like is set at very low heat and the room is at that temperature.

Ac works fine when fan is on low but fan cuts off after a couple of minutes on high


Bad fan motor. Multi-speed motors have a set of windings for each speed. Your high speed is bad so the only solution is to replace the complete motor. When motors are going bad they will over heat and kick out on the heat safety. As it cools back down it will start again for a short time again until it gets hot again.

Fan Runs On and Off


the problem is dry bushes on the fan shaft. It is best to replace the fan motor unless you have a good appliance electrician who can pull the motor apart ad knows how to lubricate the bushes.

After highway driving for 2 hours and stopping for gas the car would initially start and then stall, it would run again until the car cooled for 30 minutes.


Sounds like your coolant level might be low. At highway speed you probably have enough coolant and with the air passing thru the radiator keeps the temp down, but at idle not so much. Or depending whether you have a belt drive or electric fan. Belt driven, could need a new belt.

Vehicle unused with dead battery for 6 months will start but not maintain idle


The automatic idle speed control system has lost its adaptive idle learning due to the dead battery. To help to correct this in the short term run the engine at 2000 RPM until warm, then back down to 1500 RPM for 3 minutes, then 1000 RPM for 3 minutes, then let it idle for 5 minutes, this should get the system to a point in the idle learn that it doesn't stall out, then drive it for 20 miles under varied conditions of highway and stop and go and low speed operation, that should get all to work again. If you still have problems you will need to have the system scanned to see what is going on that is causing a stall. Also add fresh fuel, gas goes bad in about 3 months. Use the recommended grade of fuel.

Yes, but it will require some knowledge of electric to do that. You will need a line voltage thermostat and mostly like have to have that run a contactor that will be wired to bypass the heater thermostat. A good electrician should be able to to this for you very easily.
