Honeywell surround heater shuts off

My heater turns on but after a few minutes it shuts off. It then sounds like it's trying to turn on. It does this for a while untill it finally turns back on. After which the process repeats itself.

    my heater does the same thing

  • NeonCities Oct 23, 2008

    The problem seems to be a bad thermostat inside the heater, possibly overheating because of the way it is housed. It overheats, and shuts the heater off even though you've not reached desired temperature. Has Honeywell done a recall?

    My heater turns on for about a minute maybe two minutes and then shuts off and then about 5 minutes later it will turn on again for 30 seconds to a min. I can't heat the room if its not staying on.

    my heater turns on and after 2 minutes it turns off with a click sound. i unplug it until i hear another click, plug it back on and it works again.. but the whole thing starts all over again.. LoL.. then one day it actually went on for more than 2 minutes.. so i left it on for hours. After that, i turned it off and unpluged it.. heard a click but ignored it. After a few hours i turned it on and it didn't work.. i shook it.. swore a few times but nothing worked. Now for some odd reason it's working again.. aaarrrrggghhh.. This heater sucks!

    Mine is on the floor next to my cat, and I know some cat hair got in there, so I'm wondering if it's shutting off so it doesn't overheat and catch on fire. I don't know, but it worked great until yesterday!!! Now my room is freezing!

Had the same problem. The cause: The coils have too much dust on them.
Soultion: Take the bottom of the base off and clean/vacuum. While the base is off, you also have access to the interior of the heater. Remove the 2 screws on the bottom front, then the 2 on the bottom back. The plastic panels will come off and you'll have access to all internal areas. Just clean thoroughly and you should be good to go. You wouldn't realize it, but even with a spotless house, the heater will **** any small particle of dust.

    How do you get the bottom off? Specifically those black screws?

Display says "CFH" but heatert wont fire up. Just makes a clicking sound

You don't have gas supplied to the heater. It sounds like you have a gas powered unit and the clicking you're hearing is the sparker sparking.

My hayward swimpro abg100 powers on but nothing happens. I can hear a buzz coming from it but it does not ignite or anything. What can I do?

Warranty status? Probably gas control valve and its connections to the "buzz" ignitor system. Gas is not a DIY thing!

I have a toastmaster model 2517 space heater. it comes on for a few minutes and then shuts off and then in a few minutes then comes back on. is that normal for that model? if not,how do I fix it?

it sounds like it is turning off when it reaches the temperature setting you have it at. turn it a little higher and see if it stays on longer.

When I turn on the projector, it works well, but after a few minutes, the colors are changing and flashing, until finally after about 5 minutes it shut down

Sounds like the color wheel malfunctions after warming up. Maybe a bad Aesir or main board issue. Seek service.

Rinnai RL94i - Produces hot water for 3 minutes, then stops

I just had this exact problem. It kept getting worse until we had no water. Our Rinnai tankless hot water heater started the same way though, with hot water for a few minutes and then would shut off with an error code 10. We just had to shut the hot water off and then back on, wait a minute or so and we had hot water back for a few minutes. Our unit would come on with a loud vibrating noise and remain until it shut off with an error code 10 (air flow fault). The solution was to remove the blower fan and blow out the squirrel cage. Ours had moths in it. We also vacuumed out the fan housing. Be careful to mark any wires you disconnect and take pictures before removal. Our unit is now almost silent when it comes on and supplies endless hot water.

Won't turn on

those tvs will try 3 times before completely shutting down. you can try and take the back off and check CP150 it is a large capactior located near the middle of the board on the left hand side(looking from back) if it looks and feels like the top is vented or puffed out then that could be the problem. if not i suggest having a qualified service tech take a look because there are too many things that could be the root cause.

My honeywell heater was working one minute and not working the next.

HI I have this heater and no manual , and I was doing research on the internet and found that these haeters have an automatic shut off if it gets too hot and it wont come back on for a while until it is cooled down. I just unplug mine awhile or turn it off and then it comes back on when it cools down.
