theis is the safety swith that senses overheating. If the fanmotor cuts off and the heater elements don't, this switch will sense excessive heat and open the circuit for both the heater fan and the heater element(s). If it is "shorted" it is because it is cool and not needing to activate to interrupt the power. The problem I am having is that the switch opens prematurely after just a coule minutes of operation. the unit has to cool down befoe it wll cycle on again for just a few minutes. Trying to find the part nubmer for the switch.
Yes it will probably still work, but with reduced output. About half to be more precise Though I would not recommend using it if it has a fan. The Fan also will run at a slower speed, and may not even start, causing the heater to overheat, or burn the element out.
USING IT MAY CAUSE A FIRE RISK. or burn it out.
If I have explained this clearly for you, a FixYa rating would be great. If you want to ask more questions, happy to help :)
Make sure that the heater is mounted where convection currents occur freely. When heat builds up around the top of the heater its temperature will rise uncontrollably. You'll be luck not to get a fire.
