Asked by: Lightsleeper
Mine was kind of a noise maker, when I shook it the broken parts would rattle. Mine was DOA.

Does the cabinet (outside) of the heater get too hot to touch (i.e., will it burn you)?

Asked by: mieranjel
The handle is so convenient that I have no recollection of ever trying to move the heater by holding it by the cabinet. However, in two years of using two different heaters in my tiny, sometimes very crowded travel trailer, I have bumped into them many times and never remember being burned. When I lift them by the handle, I can say for sure that mine only leave a slightly warm spot on the vinyl or faux wood floor. I know because I always touch the floor when I move them...just to be sure the heater isn't overheating. You probably won't have any issues wit h burning yourself if you are careful, but please contact the company if you plan to use this in a child's room. Sorry I could not be more specific, but the HD site will not let me enter my other review comments without all the comments being filled out.

what is the upper limit setting on the thermostat?

Asked by: JoefromCinti
I do not know, but I can state that both heaters I own just keep going when on high. I manually turn them back a bit once I reach the desired temperature level. I have never had these heaters shut down before the room was toasty. That is one of the pluses of this heater.

I bought it to use in my tent camper in late April with nighttime temps down to 35 and it kept us comfortable. My son uses it in our basement to take the chill off. Surprisingly, the unit does not get that hot underneath or on the sides either. Love it.

These little powerhouses are definitely living up to those claims. We have a 36 ft. motorhome and the furnace seems to be a lemon. It chooses the coldest weather to go on the fritz and we are often not near a place to get repairs. We got these heaters to assure that we will not be without heat on a cold winter night. One of them is adequate to heat the whole place until it gets below freezing, then we kick the other on at the lower (1250w) setting. We haven't had to use our furnace at all since these little guys arrived. We are thinking they will be enough to get us through any weather we encounter. We are currently in the Northwest US.

In all my years of buying stuff online I've never spent more trying to repack a defective product than I did actually testing it. As soon as I got the small box from the porch I could hear parts rattling around. The shipping/retail box is a very tight fit so not much protection. Unlike Amazon who packs smaller boxes in a bigger protective box Home Depot chooses to roll the dice. Good thing I'm going to the store soon, now I can return their broken item. Of course, it's still winter and I'm still freakin' cold.

This heater, as small as it is, really does put out a lot of heat. I keep it set at the low range and still maintain a comfortable 80 degrees. It shuts off when temp is set, then comes back on when needed. The fan is very quiet and since the heating element is ceramic, I don't have to worry about leaving it running all night. I am thinking of getting a seconed one for my garage. This little heater is awsum!!

Love that it is ceramic not infrared as I've read infrared doesn't last that long. Also love the safety features, though I haven't tested them out. Overall, this is a good buy! In researching online other ceramic heaters with these features cost 2 to 3 times as much. I was surprised at how small it was, but equally surprised at the good amount of heat it puts out.

I don’t want to raise the thermostat for the whole house so this works. I start it beforehand so the room is comfortable. I considered a heat/vent but I have 2 bathrooms; I can move this heater to either one. It works well for me.

I ended up reordering and will hope the replacement unit performs better. The heat output is excellent but for the fact that the fan rattled significantly on high.
