Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a charmglow bedroom heater with a remote starter.The remote no longer starts the blower or the flame. The light on the remote unit lights up as does the red light on the "junction box' that plugs into the wall socket. There is an audible click when activating the remote switch matching the same audible click emitting from the heating unit. The model # is 47-1001 "Whatchathink"

This click in the heater unit, is probably a relay, and it's possible that the contacts are oxidized, dirty, or bad. You'll have to take the heater apart to figure this out. You can look up "how relays work" on google, and find out how to test it. Aside from the relay being bad, the element could have a bad electrical connector, or it could be open- you can ohm elements out to tell.
The relay will be a rectangular metal or plastic encased coil with a set of movable contacts, and they can have quite a few legs, but this one will probably have 6 or 8.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Charmglow CGL300TQ Keep shutting off after a minute???


Not too familiar with this product, but it looks like a vent free heater. ALL vent free heaters are required to have an ODS pilot light. These pilots monitor the oxygen level in the room and if it detects a low oxygen level, it shuts down the whole heater. This is what I think is really happening. And the solution is simple. Near the rear of the metal tube where the pilot light flame comes out, you will find two very small holes. If these holes get even a little plugged up with dust you will have this problem. Just get a can of air or use an air compressor and blow air through these holes. I bet that this will solve your problem. It is also a good idea to keep the area around your heater clean and free of dust. I have a free standing gas log heater and at the start of each season I take the logs out and vacuum everything, inside and out, and also underneath the unit. Then I use my air compressor to blow out any remaining dust, especially around the pilot light, and of course, I then blow air through the two tiny holes in the pilot light tube. Since I started doing this, I have not had any problems with my heater.

Charmglow Electric Fireplace ***NO HEAT** just lights up, HELP :(


Take the fan power switch apart and clean the 2 point contacts. Also clean the 4 male studs that the wires plug into. That should solve the problem.

Charmglow patio heater


Well, I just went out this morning and worked on the heater after it would not light last night. Turns out that a spider or moth set up camp in the pilot light intake housing and plugged up the two small mixer holes that pull in air for the pilot light. This would explain the 'yellow-flame'. I took a punch awl and some compressed air and cleaned out the hole, then re-installed the cover and knob. Lastly, I turned and depressed the knob and the pilot light ignited almost instantly, stayed on when I let the knob up, and the heater turned on normally after that. Good luck, I hope this helps.
