You can also check that the back of the motor is clean of debris. i have the same issue but i recently cleaned the back of some cat hair, not too much and it seemed to be ok now. i never had this problem until about 6 yrs after i bought the fan so i know it isn't a heat issue or sensor control issue or it would have done that from the start

This thermal switch may be of the type where it is saving power by turning off motor when air is sufficiently cooled. You obviously want the air cooler, so you can place a wire across the two terminals of that switch to defeat the power save. If the switch is to prevent motor over-heating, however, then you cannot jumper that switch. Do this test: open back to locate switch. if switch is located directly on motor housing, then that switch is cannot be jumpered out. if switch is located in air stream, then it may be possible to jumper it out. Try the jumper and observe for many operations of fan useage to ensure jumper is safe. Ensure no bare wires or electric terminals exposed when done.

    added: if the motor is really not over-heating, then the switch is over-sensitive and it may be replaced...what is the current draw on fan's nameplate? If 5 amps or less, the switch may also be jumpered out for continuous operation, after ensuring that motor is not getting hot ever.

I purchased the Patton PUH9000 heater last year. I puts out a lot of heat at first, but shuts itself off after about 5 minutes, then cycles back on after a couple of minutes. Is this normal operation? I...


My Patton PUH682 utility heater from 2011 is otherwise in excellent condition but Auto Safety Shut-Off seems to be a design problem. My overheat sensor quickly shut off the unit when surrounding air was cool. It is inside the bottom of the fan box wired between the on/off potentiometer and heating coils.
I identified it by turning on the heater and watched the metal contacts separate as it tripped. On my unit, the defective overheat sensor is hardwired. Since it was otherwise useless as a heater, I decided to jerry-rig it and hope for the best. I pried back the sheet metal edge of the fan box and wrapped the sensor with electrical tape. Then I took a very small squeezable metal paper clip and lined it with electrical tape. I clamped it over the overheat sensor and it fits perfectly to prevent the metal plates from separating. Now the heater works the way it should. The cable, coils and plug don't overheat on Hot setting and it runs continuously.

The furnace send signal to the fan in about 30 seconds, now this fan is set in auto from my termostat, my problem is the fan is starting slowly and some time it don't start, but if I use the option manual...


Depending on the model of the furnace, the blower is either a 2 or 3 speed. When the furnace operates in heating mode with the thermostat in the auto position, the furnace starts the fan when the furnace reaches a specific temperature or after a set time delay, but it operates the fan in low or med low speed on heat mode, when you put the thermostat fan switch in the "ON" position, the furnace operates the fan in "HI" speed, the same speed used for cooling mode. You may have a blower moter that is starting to short. I would recommend having a professional replace the motor before now before it becomes an emergency in the middle of the night during a cold spell.

I have a manual and would be happy to upload a copy to you. I haven't found a Patton website yet. I'm ultimately hoping to find a place where I can buy replacement wheels for my Patton POH2501, but so far, no luck.

Let me know if you're still in need of the manual.
