Question about Holmes Products HQH309 Compact Heater

Open Question

I have a Holmes HQH309 Tower Quartz Heater. Stopped working suddenly. Took case apart and it appears that the fan does not activate or stay activated. Fan starts to turn and periodically stays on, but shuts down at random. Any thoughts?

The diode-looking parts sound like thermal fuses. Typical thermal fuses resemble a 22-caliber bullet with the pointed end colored differently from the body. If they have failed, an ohm meter or continuity meter will tell you. Yes, they are a safety feature which should be kept.

Try your local appliance parts/repair store. Take the old ones in to compare. You will also need some crimp-on connectors to attach them to the wire ends.

SOURCE: Heater comes on but quickly over heats.

There is no Filter On this Model. Check to make sure there is Dirt in the Flow way of the two towers. if that is not it the back up fuse in the heater is going bad.

My holmes heater will not turn on, but the light comes on when the thermostat kob is turned to lo.. but the fan inside isnt working.. this happened out of nowhere

Same problem, I took it apart and found that the thermostat had failed, there are "points" burnt out (like in older cars distributors) that make contact at the thermostat and there were some solder joints which had come loose as well, adding up to no contact through the "hot" side of the wiring. Basically it's not something you can repair, just go buy a new heater, they're about $30. If you decide to try to fix it, beware, it might be dangerous if you don't do everything exactly right, also beware that parts might cost more than the heater.
