Question about Heating & Cooling
Hi, Can u help me fix this stove? Stove turns itself off. When it is on it will only stay on for an hour or so. Help
This unit is designed to cycle on and off. Are you telling us that the unit just shuts off without reaching set temperature and does not come on again? If so, check the air filter for debris and clean if necessary. It is found on the top of the unit close to the wall. There are two. Next make sure the venting system is not restricted or sucking back in the exhaust in the air intake. The air intake is a slot in the outter chrome "desk bell" shaped metal cap. If you observe the steam being sucked back in, there is your problem. There is a a temperature sensor wire behind the unit enclosed within the sheet metal shroud. Remove the top of the shroud where the air filters are and look down to the lower right side (as you are standing in front of the heater) of the back of the heater and you will see a black plastic probe with a yellow wire attached. This is your temperature sensor. This sensor may be bad. To test it, while the unit is running and set for normal room temp, take your warm hand and cover the probe. The unit should turn off within a few seconds to a half minute. Next take an ice cube and wrap it in a small cloth. Place the cube on the same probe. The unit should turn back on. If not, replace the sensor.
Give us more details and we may be ble to help you more.
