Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have an oil filled radiator heater. We had it on for most of the day yesterday. The plug was in a power board. When i went to unplug it, i noticed the plug was very hot. i pulled it out of the power board and noticed that one of the metal prongs had burnt a hole in the powerboard. Is this heater safe to use?

Check the plug for damage, if it has lost metal or is burnt up, replace it with the best in the store, one of the big round ones. The power board was probably too light for the job, also get the best you can. Heaters draw a lot of electricity, use heavy duty cords to power them. It's better to plug it directly into the wall if you can.

Kenwood Electric Oil Heater. Model EW7507EK. Can anyone tell me what color order of wires onto the circuit board? I feel like an silly for not taking a photo before starting the repair. F3-5


Look carefully on the board itself. Sometimes the wire color codes are labeled right next to the connector. If not, there may be some other letter codes and these should match the ones on the thermostat.

No steam coming out from steam cleaner


I know its a silly question but is it plugged in? and does it have water in it? Is there any lights on it to show that power is on? Have you plugged it in elsewhere? If no power light on check the fuse in the plug, only replace it with one of the same rating. If this cures the problem and the power light is on, it should be working, if it blows the fuse again then it has a short and needs repairing or replacing

Repair infrared space heater


It might have a fuse that has been blown internally. This may have happened to protect it from over heating because it was left on too long or something went bad and it got too hot.

Electric Furnace stopped running


You have one of two problems. Either the capacitor for the motor has failed or the motor has failed. I would turn off the power to the unit and see if you can locate the capacitor and remove it. An ac supply or electrical supply house can match up the capacitor. This is relatively inexpensive. Otherwise you will need a new motor.
