Black & Decker BDCH200C Ceramic Heater

My heater was working a couple of days ago, now it will only stay on for a few minutes before the caution light comes on. It is plugged in, the filter in clean, and it is sitting on a flat surface.

There is a thermal fuse in this heater. A 133 deg. C fuse along with a bimetalic thermal cutout is attached to the top of the ceramic heater housing. This fuse is probably open, and is the most likely cause of your problem. This fuse is riveted in place, and is not easy to change.
Opening the heater case requires a special anti-tamper screwdriver. B&D don't want you inside this unit.

Use Torx T8 screw driver to get the special screws out and once inside find this thermal fuse and bypass it by soldering a piece of copper wire into each rivet. That thermal fuse is a safety feature that is a waste since there is a bi-metallic cutout that will trip the heater element out if the fan quits. Many small motors and appliances use these devices that fail and render the unit disposable and force you to buy a new one.

Underneath the heater element are two thermostats that are run in series with each other. Inside the wire that connects them is a thermal fuse that opened up. Replacing the fuse corrected the problem.

CAUTION LIGHT only -- no Fan or Heat


According to the manual, the "Caution Light" means that the unit has overheated. They suggest running on a lesser setting, but you also may want to see if you can return the unit (if it is still under warranty).

Unit shuts itself off within a few minutes.


. Try taking a can of compressed air and spray in the vents in the front and the back of the heater. The heater has a sensor that gets dusty and causes it to shutoff to prevent overheating.

The heater should function properly once the dust is blown off the sensor.

Good luck!
