Question about Patton Electric Patton PUH680-U Electric Utility Heater 1500-Watt

Model PT 268 heater doesn't work at all but seems to have voltage

I'm trying to trouble shoot a Patton 220v/amp portable heater for a friend.She said that in the past sometimes wiggling the knob would get the heater to come on, but not anymore.So that seems like that would the obvious problem,but when I turn the knob on I get voltage to the other side. I get voltage to both sides of what i think is a thermal cut out and at the element. Seem to have voltage everywhere! But the fan never comes on either. The element looks good and I get a proper resistance of about 15. It's a 4000w heater. Any ideas for me?

Hi,
Yes it would seem that the thermostat or the knob would be the problem...when checking for voltage you need to check for 220v across the two terminals for the heating element. You will have 120 feeding back and forth all over the place but the fan and element will only work if they have 220... so you can have voltage and it still not work...

Where can I find replacement thermostat/s for the PUH682 electric heater/s.


I would think the contacts are burning out on the line voltage thermostats. The contact areas have been reduced over the years so they last just past the warranty period. If it were mine, I'd locate a line voltage baseboard heater thermostat and adapt the control to operate the heater elements. Much higher amp rating and built more substantially.

My patton prh11 heater keeps acting like its going to come on for maybe about a minute or so and then actually comes on. It just keeps turning on and off constantly. Maybe about 15 times in a minute.


These heaters all have safety devises in them some for tip over and all for over heating. Your problem sounds as if it has a bad over heating sensor. These will have two wires one in one out, it is usually a positive wire. When they sense that the heater is to hot it shuts it down upon cooling it allows the heater to turn back on. The tip switch does the same if upright it turns on if tipped it turns it off. They are mechanical and thermal switches and they do go bad. These can be jumped out to trouble shoot the problem but I would not run it with out these safety devices in it.

When the alarm on the Patton Electric Heater sounds, whay does one do to fix that?


This heater was the determined cause of my total loss house fire. I thought the company would atleast help me find some where else to live, they seem to care. But, as of lately they are doing nothing.
I am told this heater-(prh11- 2008 model- purchased at walmart for about $27.00)
- Had wiring that wasn't up to standards
-1/10,000 units cause fires
-something wrong with the heating element-stops working
- wouldn't stand level
-heating coils
-fires like mine have happened to a few other people
This came directly from a person at Jarden corporation(aka patton-sunbeam)
