20 Most Recent Windchaser Stainless Steel Patio Heater 40,000 BTU by - Model PHS - Page 4 Questions & Answers

If the air that's coming out is still cold, then you're probably fine. If it's running nonstop and it's not cooling down, you might be low on charge. Unfortunately, there's no simple way to check this yourself, and you'll need to call a service tech to verify that that's the problem and fill you back up. General charges (depending on the freon and the company) are somewhere around $100-300 for the visit, then $50-400 for the freon (depending on how much you need and the type).

There is no model with that number listed on their site so it's probably a custom one, made very recently specifically for a chain of stores. In that case this one should be very close to what you have


But if the unit is an older model (as in at least 5 years), the one with rotating dials, then this is its manual

Here s a link to the Owner's Manual that you can download and print for future reference. Take good care of your unit, as Windchaser went out of business about 4 or 5 months ago. And with it went all the repair parts.So follow all the recommendations for Routine Maintenance listed in the Owner's Manual.


I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Unfortunately, Al, Windchaser has been out of business for about 6+ months and finding replacement parts are like looking for a needle in a haystack.There may be a substitute for it, but it would mean reprogramming or replacing the receiver in the unit. In my searches, I have not been able to find a universal replacement for AC units. However, there is one place you might try
http://www.remotecontrols.com/ You will definitely need the correct model number of the hand held remote, when search for it.

I hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

FYI - You may need to change your cell phone number after posting it on here. As thousands of folks now have it.

The compressor is going into thermal overload.

"Backstroke" or I mean to check for power backward from the wall plug to the breaker box..

Windchaser... | Answered on Aug 22, 2008

Check the wall outlet with something known to work. Check the plug on the end of the air conditioner as many have a press-button reset.

If it has a dehumidifier built in, check the water doesn't need to be emptied.

Anything more than that, you need a refrigeration engineer to look at it.

I moved your question to the correct category.

you probably have air in the lines. keep trying to relight or maybe open a burner up and let it flow for a minute or two before relighting it

Heating &... | Answered 14 hours ago

That information is stamped on the serial number plate.

It has a tip-over safety switch that needs resetting according to this


The manual just says, place it upright and press the power button. Contact details are on Page 6.

After two years of not being used, it needs servicing. You can't work on it yourself, because you need to be a qualified technician to work on gas appliances.
