Initial quality is questionable. Within a few days buying the unit the buttons stopped working. I was about to return it. I took a chance and I opened the unit and figured out the problem and fixed it buy tightening some screws and repositiong the circuit board. I am not sure how many would be inclined to do all that.

Why does it shut off completely and has to be manually turned back on?


Probably a safety feature to keep it from getting too hot. temperatures above a certain level could easily start a fire.
This unit has a temperature control with will turn it of after a certain temperature is reached it also has a timer that will turn it off.
It might also be a malfunction in one of those controls.

Hi, Will the Optimus H-4500 14-Inch Oscillating Pedistal Digital Dish Heater eventually heat up a 12' X 12' room? Thanks.


I guess it all depends on how warm you want the room. I typically sleep with mine on low in the master-bedroom with connecting bathroom. When it's not on the room is in the low 50's. When I do run it for about 5 hrs (while sleeping) it keeps the room around mid 60's.

Optimus heater h-4438


Check on the heater coil using the multi-tester. Set it at Ohms 1 x 10 position.
1. Switch it off and disconnect it .
2. Disassemble the electric heater.
3. Put the multi-tester probe (red and black) at each
end of the heater coil.
4. If the reading is almost zero, then it is okey.
Otherwise, you have to replace it.
5. Then, reassemble the electric heater.
6. Plug it back to the electric outlet, and switch on.

Problem w/ Optimus space heater model H-4438.


I have the same problem. I removed the center panel on the back of the dish and found a fuse inside a white insulating sleeve. The fuse is open, preventing the current from reaching the heating coils. On the fuse it says 121 C. and 15 A.; I assume that it is designed to blow if the temp. of the dish exceeds 121 centigrade or the current exceeds 15 Amps. I don't see any reason to believe that either has happened so I suspect that these fuses just spontaneously fail. Now I just need to find a source for new ones. I wouldn't recommend jumping the fuse as it could lead to a fire.
