Heater will not turn on after a tip over

Some heaters are equipped with a safety switch that removes power if it is tipped. The switch may not have reset or it may be necessary to try turning the heater in various ways to get it to reset. There is a possibility that the tipover switch may have acted only once, then failed.

I have an Bionaire BPH1520 Micathermic Electric heater which will not heat up. I turned it off after use and now will not heat up when switched on. Digital display still lights up? Is there an internal...


The heater has a built in safety device which

will switch off the heater automatically in case

of accidental overheating. It can only resume

operation when the user has reset the unit. For the

BPH1520 (OH)will display in an overheat situation.

To reset the heater:

1. Unplug the heater and wait for 30 minutes

for the heater to cool down.

2. After the 30 minutes, plug the heater in

again and operate normally.

Problem with the DeLonghi HHP1500 Mid-Size Heater The heater has worked well for two seasons. We just got back from a long weekend having left the heater on low. When we got back, the light was still on...

There is a overheat safety feature and it can usually be reset. Unplug the heater for 5 to 10 minutes and the plug it back in. If that doesn't solve the problem, there is an internal reset switch, but it's a little hard to find. You will have to remove the back cover, then look for a red button/switch that has 2 wires coming out of it, that go to the heating element. Press that, to reset the safety switch.

But, I must add, the other solution/answer you received ... that it may have burned up the heating element is certainly a reality. In any event, it's not safe to leave a space heater ON and unattended for any length of time. Particularly, since this one somehow slipped of the fireplace hearth while no one was at home. Just be glad the overheat safety switch worked as it should. Electric space heaters are one of the biggest causes of house fires in the U.S.

This heater sits for a year without use and now I can not turn it on. Does it have multi-button reset to turn it on again?

These types of plug in portable 1500 watt or less heaters use fusible links, limits, safetys etc some of which dont auto reset, many times failing due to one of these essentially non servicable components,I have several times taken these various defective heaters apart, rarely unless an older better built unit, have I seen fan motors fail, nor heat strips, 90% are some safetys/limit, the rest are the switch. unles you can bang or tap it to come on its through. I myself hack the heaters bypassing the failed part, often running them direct , no limit, fusible link or even switch, only to use them in situations where I wont sleep or leave the area, as there is zero safetys now! i do not recommend this to anyone except a technician, i have several motors and coils hanging by the cords running sans their plastic housings a naked heater, they work for years this way so clearly the limits/safetys are the weak pots on these units, by design I suspect.

I need to reset the thermal safety switch (

It is self resetting. There is no button or "reset". If it has not reset, you'll need to buy a new one. This usually caused from plugged filters or blower motor not working. Be sure to correct the problem before replacing the safety.

I need to reset my Delonghi radiator. it overheated

Unscrew the four screws holding the front faceplate on (two are on the bottom of the radiator). From the bottom end gently pry up the faceplate, it will stay attached at the top end near the temperature selector. Look inside and you will see a black bridge like piece of metal with a plastic and metal thing stuck to it's center with two wires leading into it. It's basically a connection that melts when high temperatures are reached, therefore it must be replaced (pictured). You can bypass this by prying the metal bridge out, removing the wires leads from the switch and connecting them using a wire nut. BE AWARE THAT THIS WILL OVERRIDE THE HIGH TEMPERATURE SHUT OFF MECHANISM, so don't use it for drying off your coat again._361.jpg

Heater flashes 3 times says it means combustion switch failed to close

Combustion switch is your vent safety.. Check your vents outside for blockage, sometimes the intake pipe will freeze or frost up not allowing the preassure switch(vent safety)to close. putting furnace into a lock out.. you can reset the furnace by turning the power on and off.. if there is no power switch just remove the bottom door and reinstall...

Does our heater have a reset switch

Turn power off at the emergency switch or breaker. You may want to test the safeties in the unit. Sometimes they pop and are not resettable and have to be replaced
