SOURCE: my chauffe air heater will not give off any heat

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If an appliance that should produce heat does not, inspect the element for breaks or obvious damage. If you don't see any damage, test the element for continuity (see below).

  1. Turn off power to the appliance or device. If the unit is plugged in, unplug it from the electrical receptacle (outlet); if the device is wired into the circuit (such as an oven), turn off the circuit at the electrical service panel.
  2. Disassemble the appliance or device to access the heating element, following the guides in this book for your appliance. Some heating elements, such as plug-in units in electric ovens, are relatively easy to remove (see the Electric Oven Fix-It Guide).
  3. Set the multimeter to RX1 (resistance times 1).
  4. Touch the multimeter probes to each end of the element.
  5. High resistance (kilo-ohms or thousands of ohms) indicates the heating element is okay. A reading of infinite resistance indicates a broken element.
  6. If a heating element is faulty, replace it with one of the exact size, shape, power rating, and resistance.
  7. Reassemble the appliance or device and turn it on or plug it in to test it.

I have a New air 1400H and the blower fan has broke, can you tell me where to find replacement parts for this unit? I understand it has been discontinued for almost 5 years. Thanks for your help.Cont


You may have to remove the complete blower assembly, remove any dead squirrels, and take it around to various appliance parts suppliers to obtain a suitable replacement. You may need only a replacement motor if the squirrel cage is intact

I have a china electric fireplace model ND 20-B the blower motor needs to be replaced how hard is this to do and where do i find one


Not a whole lot of information about the fireplace/free standing stove you have. Other than it's a direct import from China and the specs, which didn't list a blower. http://cixijasun.en.made-in-china.com/product/NeCQduwOPHhD/China-Electric-Fireplace-ND-20B-.html

With only the little information about the company, there's not much chance in finding the part (blower) you're looking for. However, 98% of all the electric fireplaces and stoves, like yours are China imports and are made almost identically, but have some replacement parts available. The solution is, finding a similar unit to yours by another manufacturer, that uses the same size and type blower. Most use what are called squirrel cage blowers rated at 120 cfm and is rated for 230 volts. Based on the voltage requirement, I feel pretty sure, it was never sold in the USA. With some online research, you may can find one.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Take a long time for blower motor to get up to speed


The first thing I would do is to clean motor and squirrel cage. It would be best if you would remove it and take it somewhere that you had a air compressor to blow out motor ports and fins on squirrel cage. Most of the time you can remove by disconnecting modular plugs and removing two or more screws on rail that squirrel cage slids on.
If you can get it out you can use a fine wire brush to loosen dirt and dust from fins on cage then use air to blow out as much as you can.
Your motor may be getting worn so check the bearing by grasping cage and see how much it will slide side to side and if it moves more then about1/8 inch then you are going to need to replace it before much longer. Also make sure that the rim of squirrel cage is not rubbing on blower housing and if it is then loosen motor mounting screws and adjust ,then retighten screws.
I hope this helps you. Thanks

Heater works fine when its turned on but stops blowing heat after 3 mins.


mine just did the exact thing. I took it apart and blew it out with an air chuck and it works like new again. a couple of weeks ago i used a vaccum and it work a couple of days and then did it again. The squirrel cage and heat elements were filled with dust. It was not easy taking apart but now i know to only take the bottom off. thanks

Find an access door on the back or side or both.
check lightbulbs.
Do not replace with anything but exact bulb.
try taking the bulb to Lowes...I've gotten luck there before with odd bulbs...they have a special drawer for them.
Good luck,

Air conditioner/heater does not work. It hums but no air comes out.


Hard to say exactly, but it sounds like you may have debris in the squirrel cage for the blower and has stopped it or the squirrel cage came off and the motor is running. Is air coming out anywhere?

Squirrel cage installation.


If there is strong air flow blowing into the house the sq. cage should be OK. Possibly you need to replace the pads and make sure that the pump is not clogged and is distributing enough water to keep the pads wet.
