Did it get set on its side, there is a saftey switch inside to kickout the heating element if its knocked over, unplug it, pick it up and turn it around at different angles, return upright, shake gently, plug in and see if it puts out heat

My heater isn't sending any heat .It seems like the fan isn't comming on


Most units heat comes on first. Does it get hot at all? may have over temp switch open and needs reset, after that check for fan operation. If fan does not come on it may lock out again. That would confirm bad blower motor.
Not sure if this unit needs this blower? Some space heaters it is an option.

Dishwasher not heating water already replaced in line heater element no change


Hello

Possible causes;

Incoming Water; Most manufacturers recommend that the water coming into your dishwasher be at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit. If the water is too cold, then your dishes don't clean properly. Or the dishwasher must run longer to heat up the water. Test the water temperature by running the hot water on your faucet for about 2 minutes or until it gets really hot. Place a waterproof thermometer under the water. If the water is too cold, increase the water temperature setting on your water heater.

Thermostat;The thermostat is responsible for regulating the water and drying cycle temperature. If this thermostat isn't working, the heating element at the base of the dishwasher tub may not come on. Test this element by selecting the hottest temperature setting. Run the dishwasher on the shortest cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and open it up. If the dishwasher water is not hot or the drying cycle isn't starting, order a new thermostat from a parts dealer since this component is difficult to fix.

Heating Element/Drying Fan; The heating element heats up the water and air. Access this element by removing the bottom rack. It looks like a long black rod. If any part of this component is broken or corroded, you must order a new one. You usually cannot fix this element. The drying fan is located in the main housing of the dishwasher, and it blows air around your dishes to dry them. Check this part by disconnecting the dishwasher from the power supply and opening up the housing. Examine the fan, and see if any dirt or debris is preventing it from moving. Clean it. If the fan won't turn at all or if the motor is burnt out, order a new fan since it's difficult to repair this part.

If your dishwasher isn't drying your dishes properly, see if you have selected a heated drying cycle. An air drying cycle doesn't completely dry your dishes. Never overload the dishwasher, as this prevents heat from circulating around your dishes, keeping them from drying properly. Plastic and Teflon

I have an aqualink rs and my spa heater isn't working. I checked the propane and it is full. The heater was working 2 days ago. Now I turn spa and spa heat on the filter pump comes on and the red light...


If the Aqualink is calling for heat then the problem is most likley in the heater. Without more information I can't tell you much more but if nothing has changed in the last couple of days. Before you call anyone be sure to clean your filter and baskets. The heater need a set amount of pressure to run and if things are dirty it won't get that pressure. Good luck.

I have a pentair minimax NT pool and spa heater. It is showing error code 4, which according to the troubleshooting part of the manual is a fan issue. However, when I first turn it on, the fan blows. ...


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

A fan error means one of two things; either the fan isn’t working (which you state it is) or the sensor that tells the heater the fan is working is failing. That sensor can be tricked by debris in the tubing that reads air pressure from the fan. Find the tube on the fan housing that leads to a pressure switch and remove it. Clean out the tube and the orifices it attached too. If the heater still won’t fire, replace the pressure switch the tube attaches too. The pressure indicator on the panel is reading your pool pump pressure, not the draft fan.

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

Heater won't blow heat and keeps running


first try to pull out the little white button on bottom left side. if it is already pulled out, then take cover off, lightly press on the center dial as you adjust the little adjusters that are in the dial. should be two of them, the first should say off set to 90, second one says on set to 130or 135. these steps may work. if not then one of the wire connections may be loose.

Question on a day and night gas forced air heater


it very well sounds like your fan switch , does your fan work at all, like in ac mode on by turning the fan on/auto switch on the thermostat to ON. If the fan does come on its the more and likely the limit switch. if it doesnt come on it could be the motor or the run capacitor. the limit switch has a dial on it that as it heats up it spins clicking on at a desired set temp ussually about 120 to 150 degrees F. turning on the fan if the fan doen't come in the the next setting clicks off the gas valve turning off the burners ussually set at about 220 degrees F. now if the fan is working when the heater is satisfied there is a setting at about 90 deegrees F. that shuts the fan off hope this helps
