The heater comes on for a few seconds then shuts off but once or twice a week it comes on and operates like a normal heater


Mine does the same thing. I have a gas heater. It will fire up- run for less then a minute then shut off. then 2 minutes later does the same thing. I'm thinking of going with a differeny brand because this is using a lot of gas evertime it fires up just for a minute. if I turn it up it stays on till it reaches the temp then does that on off thing again. i think it is just the so called "feature" Honeywell is claiming to maintain the temp in our home, not realizing it is wasting your gas or electricity.

The heater keeps shutting off, i unplug and wait a few minutes, then try again it works for a few more minutes then shuts off again.


Defective thermostat is shutting it down before it reaches the correct temperature. Essentially the thermostat is acting too sensitive.

Finding parts could be tricky probably worth replacing for the potential repair cost.

Sunbeam SLP3310-UM shuts off after 2 minutes. I unplug it and hear a relay clicking after a couple of minutes. Replug it, and shuts off again after 2 minutes. It worked fine last year, not this year.


It's broken --- call Sunbeam customer service (888) 264-9669 and have your receipt and serial number ready. They are aware that these have faulty switches in them.

Heater shuts off unexpectedly


I would suspect that either the reset (HA3003 Safety Control) or the photocell (HA3019) is bad. For test purposes only bypass them one at a time- see if the unit ron OK.

Blinking error codes?


Unplug the machine for 30 minutes , plug it back it, start it for 1 minute, unplug it again for 5 minutes then plug back it and it should work. If not then write back with the error codes so further diagnostics can be done
