SOURCE: heater keeps shutting off !!

I have model 5532, but I think they all have the same problem. There seems to be a safety device in the ceramic heater that turns off if it gets too hot. It "remembers" when this happens as well and will shut off until it is unplugged for 10-15 minutes.

This happens on even lightly used heaters if used in dusty conditions. Dust builds up behind the ceramic heater and the lack of flow causes it to overheat. The unit must be dismantled and the dust brushed/vacuumed out. The good news is that not only will the heater work again, but it will have better airflow too!

To do this, tech support and other people say to "clean the rear grill", but my rear was not dirty. The front grill had some dust that I vacuumed clean, but did not help. In my unit there are no filters before the air goes through the heater element. The problem is in the center of the heater. Taking out the internal fan (four screws on the sides of the squirrel fan box), I could see that the radiator was over half covered in dust. I cleaned that dust out using a shop vac and the problem went away.

Opening the heater was a little tricky, two of the screws were triangle head screws. Once inside, however, it is a simple proceedure to remove the fan. Of course, you should unplug the heater and wait a while before opening it up to make sure there are no electrical charges stored in the unit.

SOURCE: I have a Charmglow propane heater model CGL300TQ

Depends what is actually wrong with fan, if tis the blower barrel part you can by replacements but if its the fan and you van't find manufacturer try an commercial or indutrial fan place to match the one you have be careful to make sure that it is electrically compatible and that it will connect to heater safely and do as old fan did as fan speeds on heaters can be important

SOURCE: I have a Charmglow model HBL-15SDLP/M20 electric

The switch itself is a (double pole single throw ) 15 amp 250 volt /20 amp 125 volt.You can buy any switch like that.The hard part is trying to find the same size to fit the hole in the heater.

My Kenmore Elite HE4 dryer keeps shutting off after a few minutes.


are u saying it shuts down or just stops heating? if it shuts down u may have bad motor windings and or brushes and motor is burning out if its stops heating that is usually due to bad moister sensor, cycling thermostat ( which would not usually shut appliance off though), short in heating element, defective hi limit thermostat etc and of course u already said u cleaned lint and ducts? including the blower? if its blocked with lint u have a shut off issue

My heater is an electric portable charmglow. it starts to heat up then makes a click and shuts off


Either the thermostat has gone bad, the anti tip switch, or the over heat switch is kicking in. Those are what need checking if you unit is really dusty you may try taking it outside and blowing it clean with compressed air.

Have a master 165,000 btu turbo heater it always starts and runs but sometimes it will run for 5 minutes 7 or 10 no matter where i set the built in thermostat,any tips ????


I would start by checking the fuel filter form the tank to the nozzle. If this is getting dirty the heater will slowly start loosing the red glow on the nose cone until the until shuts down.
Normally if it sets for a few minutes it will start and run again.

You can order a filter replacement kit that has all of your filters included.

Heater runs hot for a few minutes then stops heating


I would say from what you have described your problem is a bad thermostat heat sensor (you may have to replace the whole thermostat on this model!) This is a very common problem for this unit!

Dryer shuts off and won't restart until it cools off


more likely a bad motor ..excessive lint build up in dryer will reduce air flow through motor causing it to overheat problem is by the time the lint problem is found and corrected motor is already gone
