SOURCE: My Vornado TouchStone Vortex heat 500 Heater - temperature

After calling Vornado Corporation, they suggested that the room temperature monitor might be failing as it read 65 degrees no matter where you started the heater. I took the unit back to the store I purchased it from, and we unpacked another unit and found the same problem existed. Therefore, the product is not capable of heating a room properly and I will continue my search for a space heater to control the temperature in my upstairs office which does not have air ducts for heat.

If anyone has recommendations I would be interested in their comments.
Thank you.

My Vornado VH2 heater stops heating several moments after switching on. The fan runs but no heat. The heating elements never get hot but all the wiring appears to be firmly in place. The tilt shutoff...


A big problem with these heaters ans well as others is the motor driving the fan. The bearings get stiff from dirt and do not spin fast enough activating the over temp device of the heating element. Check the motor out by placing the unit in fan mode them pull the plug or turn off looking at the fan to see how many revolutions is makes with no power applied. It should rotate like five times or more indicating freeness. If it hals to a stop immediately after power is removed the motor bearings are tight.
If your handy you take apart and oil the shafts using 3inone motor lube. Clean the motor of dust and dirt drop a few drops on the shafts near the bearings then work it in by hand rotating the blades. Do this a few times reassemble then ler ripp!!!

Does not turn on


This is a pretty common issue with these heaters. The switch can easily be replaced by opening the unit and swapping out the switch assembly. One switch I have found that works well and is reatively inexpensive (under $4) is the one from Radio Shack (P# 275-0020) which is a 16A 125VAC illuminated round rocker switch. Unlike the OEM one that drops in, the RS one is a panel type which you will have to screw into place. The whole procedure shouldn't take you more than 15min.

I need a new on/off switch


I have the same problem with a VH Vornado heater
No need to change switch.
The switch has to sets of contacts, but uses only one. This one is burnt out

Just reconnect the black cable (hot) to the opposite free switch connector.
Then interchange the white (resistance) with the brown cable (ground for switch light)

You may have to turn around the switch because the heater will turn on on the "OFF" position

Check your cables with tester, to avoid any short circuit.
