Customer Questions & Answers

How do I keep the heater on longer ? It keeps shutting off

Asked by: Kee
Turn up the thermostat. If its shutting off when the thermostat is turned up all the way it could be the over heat protection.

The documentation with the heater doesn't list the wattage of the low setting but my guess would be around 750 watts.

1,500-Watt Electric Fan Portable Heater is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 256.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best heater I've ever had This is a great heater. Of the approximately 10 fan-forced heaters that I have used over the past few years, most have had at least one major flaw, whereas this heater’s only issues are quite minor for my purposes. Safety: this heater has enough safety features to make it perfectly usable, but lacks some features that other heaters have. For example, it doesn’t have tip-over protection. Some heaters have a switch on the bottom of the unit that turns it off when it is lifted or tipped over; this unit doesn’t have that. In my case that doesn’t really matter because with all my space heaters I screw a 1’x1’ piece of plywood to the bottom of the unit to make it very unlikely to tip over, even on an uneven surface. This piece of plywood also makes it easy to push around on carpet. I looked inside this heater and confirmed that it does have an over-temperature shut-off breaker, as advertised. Some other space heaters also have a thermal shut-off fuse, in addition to the breaker, but I did not see one on this unit. The user-controllable thermostat would likely also act as a over-temperature shut-off mechanism, but I haven’t tested that. Temperature settings and controls: I am very happy with the temperature settings on this heater. It has two heat settings and I find them to be quite comfortable. The high setting isn’t overwhelmingly hot thanks to this heater being a mid-sized unit. I have tried some heaters of equal wattage that had much smaller front grills. Because it is equal wattage, it puts out the same amount of heat, but by concentrating it into a smaller grill, the air temperature gets uncomfortably high: with those heaters, I had to sit back at least 2’ to be comfortable. Also, thanks to this heater being made of plastic, none of its surfaces get too hot to touch. I have tried some heaters that have metal front grills, which I find to be a big problem because the metal gets hot enough to cause minor burns. The low heat setting on this unit is also quite nice. On some heaters the low setting is so low that the air coming out is a bit too cool, but that is not the case with this one. I was initially hesitant to buy this heater because I wanted 3 heat settings (like on some other models), but I have come to find that because the two settings that it has are both very comfortable, 2 is enough. The thermostat is a very nice feature to have and it works well and predictably. All the controls on the unit feel solid and smooth. Noise: this heater is nicely quiet. It’s definitely not silent, but it’s one of the quietest fan-forced heaters of this size that I have ever had. I’m really sensitive to noise, yet I find this heater to be good. The noise that it does make it quite pleasant: just a simple white-noise-like sound, without any noticeable hums, buzzes, rattles, or other weird/annoying noises. Overall build and looks: this heater is well-built and feels solid. I can see it lasting many years with rough use, and decades with gentle use. I find that it looks quite good. It’s not too plain-looking, but also not too weird-looking that it doesn’t fit in with other furniture. My one complaint about its construction is that it doesn’t have a handle or any good spot to grip it. It’s light enough that this isn’t too much of a problem, but because I screw on a 1’x1’ piece of plywood to its bottom to give it stability from tipping over, the extra weight of the plywood makes me really want a handle. Conclusion: this is a great heater at a good price, and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a fan-forced heater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product! I just bought it last October 14 and it works very well! I have a small room that it can manage to warm even without the centralized heater in the house. I will try its durability and effectively in coming winter. Overall it's smell first the plastic but if you follow the product manual, it's working according to my expectations! Thumbs up for this!

I brought one and it was quick out of work less than a year; then I brought a second one and it was out of work yesterday. Both had the same problem, not working suddenly. Don't buy this model anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best heater fan ever I had my heater/fan for over a year, when my boss allowed us to buy some for the office I knew which ones would be a great fit. This product is an excellent buy and Home Depot should carry a larger quantity for this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This puppy is the bees' knees if... One has to have a simple tri-combo temp-humidistat-barometer(quite cheap to purchase btw). Why- the heater has 2 levels of heat. One is perfect for a small area. The highest heat level for larger rooms that may have an ante-room such as a small bedroom. U have to be able to know the temp level as u adjust the heater. U also have to know the humidity level you're at(in cold weather) because u will need a humidifier to keep the same area(s) at proper comfort levels. Over time u will get it right and believe me u will be glad u did. Basement apts are HUGE for this need - open at least one window a crack 365 days a yr so bad air(your exhaled breath) will go out !! Hot air rises - have a small fan placed in a pertinent spot that works for circulation and u'v got it made. Underground is ALWAYS colder(basement apts in particular) - for $20 and the additional cost of a really cheap humidifier and the above gauges - you'll have it made. It WORKS - but very few know and SUFFER 'underground' because of it, for one. Otherwise it's an incredible device no matter what- I've explained the 'science' - u do the rest. Cheers
