Heating elements The right heating element does not light up on low setting, but the left one lights up at the hight setting.. I asume the right element is out. I can't figure how to get the element out to replace it. The box says you don't need any tool; I tried to twist it like you do on neon lights but it isn't working. can you explain how to do this and ALSO WHERE CAN I BY A REPLACEMENT? Thank you Ken Duewell E-Mail

    pushing forward or back did not remove this element; the way it is removed is to push down on the element tube, the base retracts down ;therefore once pushed down it releases from he top,;very easy.

Is this one of those quartz type elements? If so I think you push it one way, forward or back to remove. Try a local appliance parts supply for the part.

    I asked what type element was first first, in case you didn't notice. But thanks for the rating anyway. This is why most questions go unanswered, not enough info. is given.

Test heating quartz heating element

put an ohm meter across the end terminals of the element. If you get a low ohm reading the element is good. If you get no reading the element is bad.

How do I check my hot water element?

1)Locate the upper heating element in the top access. The heating element is above the thermostat, and all you will see is a round disc with two wires attaching to the disk.
  • 2)Set your ohm meter to the X1 or RX 1 scale to measure the continuity of the heating element. Touch each of the ohm meter probes to each of the terminal screws on the heating element. A positive reading indicates a good element. If there is no reading, the element is faulty.
  • 3)Test for a possible short in the heating element with the ohm meter. Touch one ohm meter probe to one of the heating element terminals. Touch the other ohm meter probe to the bracket that secures the heating element. If you get a reading of zero, the element is good. If there is any positive reading on the scale, the element is grounding itself and will require replacement.
  • 4)Test the lower heating element exactly as the upper heating element.
  • 5)Place the access doors back on the water heater tank, and secure them with the screws.

  • Good luck

    I have a zeus patio heater. the right side element wont come on, but when i put the element in the left side it is fine. Can anyone help?

    The burner is either clogged or rusted out on the side that doesn't come ON. You will need to replace the entire burner though, to solve the problem.

    Hope this helped you.

    My Big Buddy heater inconsistently works on high. The low and medium settings work fine (single ceramic element) but when I turn it to high (activating the second element) the element does not fully light...

    I did some research on these units-- I pass them on to you-- Do these help?

    your Mr. Heater the model that uses two small one pound cylinders or you have the choice to hook it up to a single larger tank? if so, you must use the special filter connected to the Mr. Heater and then your hose to tank.
    This happened to me and after I hooked up the filter my problem was fixed.
    large and sealed of an area are you using it in? I ask because those units have a low oxygen sensor which will shut it down if there is not enough oxygen in the space.(kinda prevents that pesky suffocation thing). Otherwise if using it in larger cold spaces, the issue is can be from the smaller tanks. As mentioned above, a larger tank can solve this, because these units have a fairly good input rate, which will cause the smaller tanks to freeze, and lower the propane temperature and evaporation rate, basically runs out of gas until the tank warms back up.
    just one new cylinder, it will run on just one, to verify a problem with the cylinders. Also it could be the pilot light, sit and watch the pilot light to see if it goes out for some reason. If it does the heater will shutdown automatically, but you already know that.

    Let us know if we can help further?

    Heater fell over while transporting in car,now it will not heat up even though the on lights come on to set power..

    with heater unplugged, check all connections with an ohm meter, sounds like something got jarred loose. also check heating elements for resistance. if no ressistance, probably a broken heating element.

    Honeywell HZ-709 oil filled radiator heater-all controlls work but no heat produced. Possible reason?? Thanks

    There is a bottom element and a top element so the elements could be dead.

    More likey, there could be no power coming from the wall - there are switches on the front that need to light up or the thermostat could be set to off.

    Left Heater switched on over night, oil radiator de longhi dragon

    1st, check the electrical cord plug; because of the hielectric demand, thesaes plugs overheat and form a burn coating on the prongs that stops the hilevel of electric but allows a small level ofalaectric that still lights the lights but no power for heat.
    2nd, the thermostat is not making contact: it is a bi-metal contactor that sometimes burns or loses its strength and no matter where you turn it it wont work. You can simply cross the terminals of the thermostat to see if you get electric flowing (you have to open the oen housing to do this.
    3rd, the element could be burned-out or (as often happens) the connection to the heat element burns-off. Again, you need to open the end housing and look, or take it to a small appliance repair place.

    Heating element

    It depends on what kind of heating element you are referring to. If you have a test meter it is very easy. With the meter set to resistance put a test probe at each end of the element. The reading should be very low, almost short-circuit. If you're not technically minded, your probably completely lost by now...sorry.

    The only other thing you can do is take a close look at it. If it is badly discoloured or has blackened, it has probably had it.

    Without knowing more about the appliance and a few more details it is difficult to give any further advice.
