I have the same heater and when that happens just unplug it for about 15 minutes and plug it back in and it should work fine. It only does this for me when I am using a extension cord or a power strip. It needs a dedicated power supply (wall outlet) with nothing else attached. If you must use a extension cord I have found that the heavy gauge orange power cord is the only one that does not overheat and causes the heater to shut off. The heater comes with a 3 year warranty, the longest warranty I have ever seen with a heater.

Please check for power to it. Maybe the power cord is broken or it may have overheated and the internal thermal protection keeps it from coming on.
Ceck for any manual resets on or inside the heater.
Unplug the power cord before going inside of it.

Will not turn on. Unit has been working great until tonight. Was on but now off and will not come on. Unpluged it for an hour but still not working.

This same thing happened to me, and yesterday as well no less. I've had mine for a 3-4 years. I think It had run out of oil, which is weird because I've had a Holmes heater for nearly 10 years and it still has plenty of oil left. If you shake it, can you hear the oil? I went and got another from Target last night (it was the coldest night of the year) and can hear the oil swishing around in it as I set it up. Hope it last longer than another 3-4 years or my next one will be a Holmes.

My furnace was working last night but when we woke up it was not working. Pilot light was out. Tried to relight but it wouldn't stay lit. Replaced the thermal cuppling. Still nothing

new one is working?Tight? Is it in a fair amount of flame? You'll need a tester ,the thermal coulpling should put out a few hundred millivolts when can check coil on gas valve with ohm meter.I went on a service call recently where the new thermal cupple wasn't tight.

Last night we woke up to a very full room of heavy plastic smoke, The control panel on our Delonghi heater was burning. The heater was set on 3 and we were only useing The lower setting. Our daughter has...

You are lucky to be writing this, plastic fumes can be poison to humans and animals. It appears you had it in a safe area as the house did not catch on fire. I would not use the other unit but keep it. Contact the manufacturer and see what they have to say. If they want the unit back contact a lawyer before sending back. You may also ask them to cover the cost of cleanup of your home.
Good Luck,

I woke up to a wet floor. The furnace is working well. It has a Hartell KT-15-1ul automatic condensate pump, could this pump have quit working?

Have you condensate pump checked for a leak in the
mechanical seal. The pump may still be working, I hope.
Have this checked ASAP.

Went to bed last night with heat woke up today everything house was cold, looked at thermastat it said 63degrees,, checked out furnace it starts up but doesnt ignite, sounds like its in the start up stage...

Does the hot surface igniter glow? If not, it is probably cracked. If this is
a 90% furnace, it could be that yuor intake air is causing the problem.

Hello I have a Unidare night store heater that

ive just bought a house with unidare night stoarge heaters and one of mine hasnt worked - i found something on a site that said this:

"My Unidare storage heaters have a fused link (may be the wrong term ) that melt ever few years. Are you able to unscrew the top of the unit and look ( all turned off etc ) -A Fused link looks like an inch long piece of 5 mm solder - if yours has melted it will probably be in silver balls/blobs - replacing is easy if you have got to them."

so this could be why they arent working...

at night set the input to high (6) and output to about the morning set the output to 2/3 so a bit of heat will be released when at work, and then when you come in set the output to 6 (max)....should work! ive only just learnt what to do but ive they arent great!

I have a thermador bathroom ceiling heater fan. Where can I get a replacement? bathroom ceiling heater Broan Product Detail

If you have the old Thermador ceiling type of heater that must be mounted on the ceiling surface there aren't many choices. Only the Broan-Nutone 154 & 157 models. The 154 @ $37 didn't seem to last too long but it's 1/3 the price of the radiant 157 model at about $100+ dollars. The radiant model may last longer
