Question about Bionaire Ceramic Tower Indoor Space Heater

1 Answer

Bionaire bch9221-um tower heater is still creating hot air but I think the fan is not blowing because it is not making that whirr sound that it usually makes and the hot air smells like it is burning on the ceramic heating unit. It happened all of a sudden without warning, just one day it wouldn't turn on and make that sound to let me know it's working properly. There was no signs it was going to give out, and like I said there is still heat but it smells like it's getting too hot and something is burning.\r\n What should I do to get this fixed? Is it best to bring it to a shop like Target (where I bought it from) or something with electronic repairs? How much would this cost me (I don't have a lot)? It is getting cold and I turned it on because I need it!

Hello christillejo,

A total CLEANING works wonders...!!

Check the fan for VOLTAGE... If present & ...

If it is not running... shut it all down... and clean your fan parts with at least 70% alcohol... blow it dry and set it aside while you find your HIGH-GRADE (CLOCK-TYPE) silicone oil...

Put a wee bit (oil) on your freshly cleaned bearing surfaces.

While the FAN might not run a complete 15 to 20 years it did before... this procedure can add years to your FAN'S life-cycle.
In the meantime... check your OPTIONS for an opportunity

My Bionaire Tower fan is Switching the sitting by itself from 1 speed to 2 speed. is it a defect?


I don't think it is a defect, but you may want ot check with the store.

I have a similar one that starts at a higher speed and switches down to low after a few seconds.
After that I can select the running speed.

Bionaire upright fan stopped blowing air


Throw it away. I have come to conclude that Bionaire is a junk brand that does not service their products. I have a bionaire model BCM646 humidifier purchased at COSCO and the water tank broke.
NO! I did not drop it, it just sat in the corner. I have not even used all the factory filters that came with it.
Who would have thought a made in China product (for American idiots) would break and not have replacement parts?
Such a shock considering their fine reputation.

Heater output goes from hot to cold


It sounds like you have a blocked heater core ( Small radiator that the interior fan blows through to create the heat inside the car), If you can get access to the heater core pipes you might be able to flush it out but usually they need replacing.
hope this help
