It worked great until just recently. Now, it won't stay on for more than a minute or two. When it shuts itself off, the temperature display just keeps fading in and out, and none of the buttons work. Is there anything I can do, short of buying a new heater? Thanks.
. Try taking a can of compressed air and spray in the vents in the front and the back of the heater.The heater has a sensor that gets dusty and causes it to shutoff to prevent overheating. The heater should function properly once the dust is blown off the sensor. Good luck!

From my understanding you are having a challenging time with your Frigidaire dehumidifier shutting too quickly. It sounds like a possible problem with your sensor or control panel. Are you currently under warranty? I would contact your manufacturer for assistance to a proper resolution. -Matt
I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.
Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV
up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors.
Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although
were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of
preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected
due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.
One must be very careful of the quality of the replacement lamp. Many of the cheap 'deals' on the web for replacement lamps are substandard. I always recommend that replacement bulbs be the original manufacturers bulb.
