Has anyone experienced issues with smoking? unit turned on, got red hot, the fan never turned on and when I turned it off it

Yes, the heater that was delivered to me looks like it was damaged in transit as the fan was wedged against the front element. I pushed the motor housing back until the fan could turn freely. Personally I recommend not having this delivered as its to delicate internally to survive Fedex and UPS.

can you control the fan speed or is it just one speed? is it loud?

Can the fan be run without the heater? Say in summer as an air circulation or cooling fan?

YES it can,it comes with a adjustable thermostat !!! But I have 2 of them so I wired them each separately to a switchs 30 amp , and separate breakers 30 amp and 10g wire from the service breaker panel to a receptacle box with cover plate , then flexible romex conduit from receptacle box with a cover plate to heaters . I turn thermostat all the way up and use the switch. I use it just to knock the chill out. my ceiling is still open until I lay down plywood upstairs floor may be spring time.

I have a 4 car garage 1000 sqf will this heater work or could i get 2 of them and work? If so wha...

My garage is 440 sq ft. I have one heater that does a good job. Advertised heating area is 400 sq ft. I would recommend 2 heaters even spaced in your garage. The unit draws 21 amps as rated. This tells me EACH unit should be wired on its OWN circuit with a 30 amp 220-240 volt breaker with a minimum of 10 gauge wire. I used 8 gauge on mine for a higher safety factor.

Can this be wired with 12 gauge wire

No, it is 220v and is to be direct wired, I.e. there is no cord with a plug.

Customer review from newair.com logo
I purchased the G73 in November 2019 and used it for 6 months before it quit working. I purchased this one in January 2020 with a additional 2 year warranty. I hope this one works for more than 6 months ( that’s why I purchased the extended warranty) Newair did help out with an additional 18% discount. Their staff (Melissa) was very helpful in getting this done. The heater did work very well in keeping the 2 car garage warm while it was working. The problem was the 6 months of use. I could have gotten a bad one at first. I hope this one works longer. Mike MSG.

Cons:No wire diagram, made noise on startup (blade was hitting and needed to be bent), thermostat does not turn OFF. Pros: Heated my 1 car insulated garage very quickly. From 40 to 60 degrees in 25mins.

Owners manual should have a wiring diagram and not just a statement about hiring an electrician so you can identify the line, load and commons easily.

Nice heater.
Customer review from newair.com logo
I purchased this unit in November 2019. It looked small but I gave it a chance. I do woodworking on my 2 car garage. I set it at approximately 65 deg. I turn on the switch and about 45-60 minutes the space is up to temperature when the outside temperature is between 30-40 deg. and keeps it at temperature all day. Here in Kentucky it can get to single digits and the unit works well. It beats messing around with a kerosene. It was easy to install and wire it up. I would buy this again.

Heater is Dangerous
Customer review from newair.com logo
So I'm on my 2nd one of these heaters. Heating wise, they work great, but both have had the thermostats fail and the built in shut off failed as well. The first time this happened the temperature in my garage reached 127 degrees. The second time, this morning, the temperature reached 111 degrees. The 2nd unit was a replacement and I assumed the first issue was a fluke and I was lucky that my garage was still standing. There is nothing like walking into a room that is 127 degrees. The company doesn't seem to be overly concerned, but this should concern anyone that doesn't want a fire to occur. The first unit was inside of 2 years old and the the 2nd just inside of 4 years. The end result is that products can wear out, but the safety features should not fail as these have. Notice the high temp on the attached photo.

Quietest heater we own
Customer review from newair.com logo
Tested and reviewed this product on our YouTube channel, White House on the Hill. This heater will help keep our chicks and rabbits warm in our large shed this winter. I'm really impressed with how small and quiet it is. I don't hear it when it's on at all. Takes a little while to heat up, but it does a great job and I love that it has a temp control (Low to High) that turns off when it reaches the desired temp. The tilt on it is pretty great as well... from the corner of the shed, I can get it to point downwards at a pretty good angle to point towards us and the animals.

The heater warms my 400 sq ft garage nicely. In fact on full heat it gets too warm. I did have an electrician install it. It was wired from the breaker box behind the wall, above the ceiling, which you can see from the pic, is tyvek covering the insulation. I had it mounted above the pedestrian door. The electrician advised using a small fan on the opposite of the garage to keep the warm air moving. What a great suggestion as I can definitely feel the difference. I highly recommend the heater.

LOVE THIS HEATER!! Keeps my 800 sq/ft Garage nice and warm!!
Customer review from newair.com logo
Love this heater!! I used to have a small forced air electric heater, a propane forced air heater, and I've upgraded to this one. I've read many reviews about them and was somewhat sceptical, especially due to its small size, however you will be impressed by the heat this little thing generates. It is not large or cumbersome, yet does the job. They should have named this the NewAir LittleTank because its that good!!
