Nothing happens when we turn the heater on. The on/off lights do not light up and the heater never heats up. Our power source has been checked and is fine. We used this heater all last year and it worked great.
First thing make sure:
· Ensure that your circuit breaker or fuse is working properly.
· Be sure the heater is plugged in and that the electrical outlet is working properly.
· Check for any obstruction. If you find any obstruction, turn the heater ?OFF?. Unplug the heater and wait a few minutes for it to cool down. Carefully remove the obstruction. Plug the heater in and turn it on again by referring to the OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS.
If you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the heater and look for anything strange like a blown fuse. A lot of times you can buy replacement at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace.

Have you checked the circuit breaker or fuse for the circuit that your heater is on? It's possible that you had something else come on that, combined with the current draw of your heater, popped the breaker. If that turns out to be the case, turn the heater switch from high to medium or from medium to low so that you're drawing less current.
Could be that the thermostat is disconnecting because it senses too warm.
Plug the heater to the wall, turn on the switches. Turn the thermostat knob all the way to min. It should make a click sound and the heater should not get warm. Turn the thermostat knob all the way to max. It should make a click sound and the heater should get warm. If the heater is still not warming up and/or you don't hear clicks, then the heater has bigger a problem. With the cheap prices of the heaters, it is not worth trying to have an electrician check it out. Just buy a new one.
very little sound and it does take quite a while to heat up .. you should feel warmth in 15 min .. if it doesnt heat at all then there might be an open "over temperature" fuse inside ... one of the good things about this heater is that its so quiet ..
1st, check the electrical cord plug; because of the hielectric demand, thesaes plugs overheat and form a burn coating on the prongs that stops the hilevel of electric but allows a small level ofalaectric that still lights the lights but no power for heat.
2nd, the thermostat is not making contact: it is a bi-metal contactor that sometimes burns or loses its strength and no matter where you turn it it wont work. You can simply cross the terminals of the thermostat to see if you get electric flowing (you have to open the oen housing to do this.
3rd, the element could be burned-out or (as often happens) the connection to the heat element burns-off. Again, you need to open the end housing and look, or take it to a small appliance repair place.
