The heater has Hi and Lo settings, but if turned on and set to Hi, it shuts itself off within seconds, unless the unit has been unplugged (not just turned off) for a length of time, prior to use.
Sometimes the heating element does not start when the unit is turned on, so the fan only blows cold air. This can usually be corrected by cycling the unit off and on.
The instruction sheet mentions adjusting the thermostat in the "troubleshooting" section. This unit has no accessible thermostat. This fact was confirmed by their phone customer service rep.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Will Bionaire 800-Watt heater
Very good heater for a small office or small room. It is very quiet in operation, has two heat settings, and it will turn itself off if it does not detect any movement within a two hour period.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BKL2 Product itself is good, but read below for other issues....
This office space heater is a great product. I love the automatic sensor and auto-off feature. The heat it gives off is 'localized'. It keeps your feet warm if kept on the floor. It doesn't give off a tremendous amount of heat to fill up a room though. The main problem.... the box, instructions, and heater smelled like mildew. The product is not kept in stock at Home Depot and had been shipped from a distributor to the Home Depot store for me to pick up. The distributor's warehouse clearly must be filled with mildew. Even after using it, I thought the smell would 'burn' off, but it did not, so I must return it. I called Home Depot and they cannot get me one from another warehouse, so I must repurchase it directly from the manufacturer. Another issue, which still has not been corrected, is the description of the product. This is an 800 watt heater, not 1500 watt. I notified Home Depot and as of this writing, they have not corrected it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maywati This space heater is really just the best.
It's a perfect size to fit under your work desk. Very quiet. With two heat settings you're always comfortable. The motion sensor is great when you need to step away from your desk, you know the unit is off. I'm so happy with this purchase, just wish I bought it sooner.
