SOURCE: vornado heater doesn't work on high setting but only at low setting

Dust on the inside of the unit can cause the overload switch to shut many vornados down. Blowing the dust out of the unit with compressed air or a blower may help.

Another problem that causes vornados to stop working (light on - no heat no fan) is when one of the bearings starts to go bad in the unit. This causes the fan to be slower and less effective and the unit’s inability to move the heat away from the thermal overload switch again causes it to shut down.

Though you could remove the front and rear bearings and try to get replacements if it's even replaceable ... Once the bearing starts to go bad there is little that can be done ... HOWEVER, here is one solution to get more life out of the unit.

First, use a blower to blow all the dust out of the unit.
Then, because it is typically the front bearing that goes bad first, lay the vornado on it’s back (so the unit would be blowing air up toward the ceiling), this will relieve the front bearing somewhat and rely more on the rear bearing which tends to last longer.

The vornados I’ve had are all thermistor units ... that is, they don’t just turn on and off when the set temp is reached but in fact slow themselves down (both heat and fan) to keep some level of air circulation in the room. This is a good thing by the way.
There are usually two toggle switches .... one is a heat switch - usually Low & High .... the other is the thermistor switch (this sometimes is labeled “fan”) - usually Auto & High.

Once the unit is on its back ... Now, change the settings as follows:
Turn the Heat switch to LOW
Turn the Fan switch to HIGH
Turn the dial (with the temperature in degrees on it) to the lowest setting - which is somewhere around 60’ish.

Now turn the unit on and it should stay working.
Three things that could cause it to turn back off ...
You turn the Fan switch back to Auto.
You turn the Heat switch back to High
You turn the temperature selection dial too high ... though, you can cautiously turn the dial up a few degrees at a time ... the unit will start shutting down again when you set the temp too high ... then just dial it back down ... unplug for a couple minutes, then turn back on.

I have a Rinnai 1004F, no manual. Vent Contol Button is in open position, its winter, should vent be closed at all? Economy button, whats it for?


Not sure about Vent Control however the Economy button is like a night time set back. Over a 2 hour period it will decrease the temperature up to 6 degrees from set point. In morning, just take off economy and unit will come up to temp. Go to www.rinnai.us for on-line manual.

Pentair 400 2 yrs old won't heat spa to 98 degrees F.


This could be a number of things. Most often it will be the internal by-pass. You find the assembly inside the water header, it controls water flow through the heater. When it goes bad it can open at a low temp and keep the water from going through the heater.
Also you will want to check the temp probe on the side of the header. If this is bad it will usually show up on the temp display though.

Temp is set at 68 degrees ,monitor is still running at 84 degrees in the room. what can be wrong.


Do you have the economy plus button light on? When you press the economy plus, the heater will run until it is 12 degrees above what you have it set on before it will cut off. If this is not the case then you may be looking at a circuit board issue.

we spoke earlier in chat about the problem. You might also be looking at a sensor that plug into the circuit board. The repair costs shouldn't be more than $100.

My furnace works intermittently.


You may have a dirty flame sensor. There are a number of other possible causes as well. Rheem/Ruud/Weatherking furnaces also have problems with the connection on the blower deck.
The flame sensor sometimes must be bypassed around the MOLEX CONNECTOR in the deck due to humidity.
Hope this helps.
