Question about Patton Electric Patton PUH680-U Electric Utility Heater 1500-Watt
I have two 1500 watt Patton Electric Heaters, model# PRH11. They have NEVER been turned over, so I don't understand why the alarm is sounding. I cannot find a way to turn the alarm off so I can use the heaters. This seems to occur when the heaters have been running at least one cycle, shut off, and then the thermostat attempts to restart the heater.
Got any ideas? I've been inside and see anything unusual or obviously wrong.
Thanks for your help.

This heater was the determined cause of my total loss house fire. I thought the company would atleast help me find some where else to live, they seem to care. But, as of lately they are doing nothing.
I am told this heater-(prh11- 2008 model- purchased at walmart for about $27.00)
- Had wiring that wasn't up to standards
-1/10,000 units cause fires
-something wrong with the heating element-stops working
- wouldn't stand level
-fires like mine have happened to a few other people
This came directly from a person at Jarden corporation(aka patton-sunbeam)

Try cleaning the sensor with a tooth brush. Worked for me.

I have the same irritating unit and there is not a solution beyond buying a different heater. The alarm is sounding because the heater's thermometer is hot and it thinks you are warm enough. You cannot tell it otherwise; all you can do is wait for the heater to think you are cold again, then it comes back on.
