Not knowing what kind of heater this is, I will assume that you are referring to a small plug in 110 volt room heater since you mention power outlet. Check the amp rating of your heater verses the breaker. Remember if it is a wall plug that there are other plugs on the same breaker. Breakers work two ways, as an over current (amps) and thermal protection (heat). It could range from too close of a current draw for the breaker and heating it up or a loose wiring connection at the breaker or wall plug. Loose could also be the problem for a central unit. After it runs a while place your finger on the front of the breaker to see if it feels hot, it should not get warm

Previous tenant left ac window unit Haier HWF05XC5, but took the remote. Can I manually turn on this ac unit? when turning the power button, only the fan turns on, I'm unable to switch to AC


According to the Model Number you listed, it's a Mechanically or Manually Controlled AC unit. There is no remote control for it.Please be certain the Model Number you listed is correct and get back to me.

If it's the correct model number and it's manually controlled. You should have 2 rocker switches. One is to turn the power ON & Off. The other is to set the Fan Speed either on Low or High. Then there is a dial, numbered 1 to 10 to set the cooling level. 1 is min cool and 10 is Max Cool.

If the controls on your unit match what I described above, it's a manually controlled unit. No remote.

I hope this helped you. Please advise. Thanks.

Hi there I am trying to help a friend who has a slightly older version of the Rinnai Timberflame Centrum and he was cleaning the controls on top of the heater and in doing so has pressed one of the...


Sue, have you friend turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the heater from the electrical outlet. Wait 15 - 20 minutes and plug the heater back in. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and the heaters electronics should revert back to the original factory settings. From there he can reset it to the settings he had, before the little mishap.

Hope this helps solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

this is very tricky because it could be one problem or a combination. first check to make sure the igniter is working. you may have the hot surface igniter, standing pilot or the direct spark ignition. if you have ignition then check the air pressure switch because it clicks when the correct air pressure is reached. these systems go through a sequence of operations and one failed operation can result in the furnace not working.

I've got a Danby DPAC 8399-4 portable heater/air conditioner. We usually use it as an A/C but we're trying to use the heater for the winter; we just brought it out of the closet. The fan barely works (and...


Check for obstructuions in the fan housing that may be hitting the fan blade, causing the noise and improper air flow.

Improper air flow will cause the uniot to overheat quickly and it will shut down on its high temperature limit switch.

You may also have a bad fan. Bad bearings will make a bad noise as well. Thios will cause the same symptoms described above.

Check for abstructions, if you can find one, remove it, if not replace the fan. You can usually reset the limit by simply turning off power and turning it back on after 10 min.
