Sounds like the heating element isn't getting current. If you have a continuity checker or ohm meter, test the element - isolated from the fan and/or switches. If that passes, look for a thermal fuse that looks like a 22-caliber bullet. See if it passes current. Then check the function of the switch, thermostat, and any safety cut-outs like tip-over switches.

My heating element is stamped 1275w. Is it okay to use a 1350w element?

If the flames glow then it seems that the heating element should be working. Can you supply any more information? And by the way you should never exceed any of the original heaters specifications because you may be creating a fire hazard even though it is only a small difference of 50 watts.

Fan cuts off, but still feel heat

I have had a element brake or burn in too and one of the strands falls and touches the side of the case which then acts as a ground and since there is power on one side of the circuit it will still produce heat and won't shut off. It won't trip the breaker because it is not a direct short because of the resistance of the heating element. To check this.... turn off all of the power to the heater and pull the heater out of the heater or if you can open up the duct work to see the heating element to see if that is what has happened.... Also a contactor could of welded shut and is supplying power to the elements. Hope this helps....

Heating elements

Heating elements in HVAC equipment uses sequencers to turn them on and off and decides how long they're energized, Not sure if you're referring to a space heater or what. Please be clear about the problem and equipment to get accurate answers.

It heats for a minute or two and then stops heating.

The heater overload switch is sensing an over heating problem and is turning the unit OFF. It may be as simple as a clogged heating element. Over time they do become clogged with dust, lint, pet hair, etc. This is because the air intake for the heating element is a floor level. So, whatever is floating in the household air gets sucked into the heating element when the fan is ON. Using a vacuum with a hose and brush attachment works well in cleaning the heater element. Be sure the unit is OFF & unplugged, before attempting this. You may be able to access the heating element thru the lower louvered door. Or consult your Owner's Manual regarding the cleaning of the unit.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

On my electralog heater, after about 5 minutes running the heat stops,fan is still running. Adjusting thermostat makes no change

From what you have described. it sound like the heating element is overheat and the automatic over heating sensor is shut it down. One of the primary reason these heaters overheat is that the become clogged with dust, lint & pet hair. Cleaning the heating element. may solve your problem. A vacuum cleaner (especially a Shop Vac) that has a hose, a brush attachment and a crevice tool, works well well in cleaning the heating element. Be sure the unit is OFF and unplugged, before attempting any cleaning.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

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.
