Rated 4 out of 5Â by iMickey503 One great compact little heater that will last you a long time with proper care!
Easy to use and clean and can last a long time if you do some maintenance to the unit. Easy to repair and fix Looks great and won't break.
-Can be used with a Min 400 invertor, but best to use with a 750 watt unit.
-Can be washed cleaned, if need be
-Controls knobs break, so get spares
-Cord jacket needed if you store the heater for the summer,
-Fan stops due to dust or FOD and needs lubrication to get working again
-unit fails to start sometimes due to THermistor going out of calibration on temp settings
-Internal plastic parts may break due to stress/shock
This is one great unit if you keep up on the maintenance aspect of the unit. You can't really go wrong with this unit. Best if you just set it on high and don't mess with the controls. Easy to fix when a problem arises. Takes a long time to reset if thermal protection is reached. best if used in Small to medium size rooms.
Will not heat up a really cold room, or maybe a car when it's cold outside (But works great for those cold nights working on a car in a garage when it is close by
For best operation, clean it out with compressed air or a shop vac on blow setting.
Mine has failed numerous times and was easy to fix.
If the unit fails to come on, the problem is the Heater switch that controls the temp. As far as I can tell this is also the thermal safety switch that you may need to bend the pins back in for it to work again,
Even if you keep the unit clean you will have to lube the motor. Not sure what best type of oil to use, but I know your hobbyshop that deals with electric motors can hook you up there.
You can wash the unit and it will work if you dry it out very well, but I don't recommend it. But the simple Analogue controls inside means no IC to fix.
The unit works great as a bathroom heater for showers or to dry off your shoes as well.
This unit will last you YEARS! if you take good care of it.
Best use would be a bedroom heater.
VERY SAFE TO USE overall and I give it a glowing recommendation.
Make sure to order extra knobs if you plan to keep it in use for a while.
Lastly, make sure you take care of the cord, and the unit NEVER gets hot to the touch.
That is one of it's BEST features!
Very kid safe. Even the grill does not get hot and it WILL NOT BURN YOUR FINGERS! Also, to my use, I never had it burn the carpet when it fell over on to the carpet , So if you have KIDS. it is a good SAFE heater.
I have gotten a few from Home Depot, and MAN are they a GREAT VALUE!
Heat output is not the best for it's size, but this is not made to be used as a main heater, it is for getting that cold small room like your bathroom warm before your shower.
Also the cord NEVER gets hot with use. This is a well made unit. Made in China, but MADE WELL!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Honey My favorite little heater.
I had one of these heaters for about 10 years.....I use this every day in the cold weather....so I use this product a lot! Finally the knob broke and I needed a new one and Home Depot came to my rescue. Ordered online and picked up in the store a few days later.....This Heater is very small and does an excellent job and certainly lasted a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gigi This product works great
Heats a large area fast. Does not make any noise. Very compact heater and a long cord. Large buttons so easy to adjust the dials.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by NorthernFreeze NOT FOR HEATING A TRULY COLD ROOM
I purchased this heat in October, which the temperature outside was about 40-50 degrees. It worked great. Kept my small room toasty to a bit too hot. It is now December with temperatures in the 30s and below where I am. This heater is not heating as it once did. I've cleaned it for dust thoroughly using a vacuum and straightened paper clip. The heater still looses it heating power 6 inches from the front of machine, I actually measured. Its great if say you want to keep your feet/legs under a table warm or knock a small chilly out of a 40 or 50 degree area. But if you are looking to heat a room in a cold weather climate DON'T LOOK AT THIS ONE.
