Works only short term
With grill on, will only work to 2 minutes. Grill off works non-stop very well but not safe. Heat element only lasted 5 months on original and then only six months on the second did not use during the summer. After 18 months I have decided to replace this as it was not doing the job I had hoped it would. (heat a small bathroom).

    heater turns off too soon
    The problem with this heater is the grille is poorly design (back flow problem next to thermostat ). the grille get really hot due to design of grille. The unit cut out ever 45 sec to 1 min. The unit run much better without grille.

        Loose rivet
        Replaced a 15 year old 174a with a new 174a. The element is now cheaper made and lasted 1 year. Loose rivet in manufacturing to blame.

          In my opinion
          Bought the unit but it shut down after 45 sec. turn back on every so often - removed grill cover and it worked fine - in my opinion the cover creates a back flow of heat to sensor - I modified our grill so we have no problem - They need to redesign the cover/grill to allow the heat flow to discharge freely and I feel that the product would work fine

            Very weak unit. After much troubleshooting and re-installation, mine still shuts down very quickly. The metal grill traps most of the hot air in the unit. Tried replacing thermostat , but did not help.

              It was very easy to remove the existing heater (shut off the circuit breaker; remove the control knob, 2 cover screws & one retaining screw; unplug the electrical connection and remove the old heater). Reverse the procedure to install the new unit. It's quiet and heats our entryway just fine. No more putting on cold shoes & boots.
