Question about Patton PUH9000-U Heater

2 Answers

I purchased the Patton PUH9000 heater last year. I puts out a lot of heat at first, but shuts itself off after about 5 minutes, then cycles back on after a couple of minutes. Is this normal operation? I have used several space heaters, but I have never seen one that cycles on and off the entire time it is in use.

My Patton PUH682 utility heater from 2011 is otherwise in excellent condition but Auto Safety Shut-Off seems to be a design problem. My overheat sensor quickly shut off the unit when surrounding air was cool. It is inside the bottom of the fan box wired between the on/off potentiometer and heating coils.
I identified it by turning on the heater and watched the metal contacts separate as it tripped. On my unit, the defective overheat sensor is hardwired. Since it was otherwise useless as a heater, I decided to jerry-rig it and hope for the best. I pried back the sheet metal edge of the fan box and wrapped the sensor with electrical tape. Then I took a very small squeezable metal paper clip and lined it with electrical tape. I clamped it over the overheat sensor and it fits perfectly to prevent the metal plates from separating. Now the heater works the way it should. The cable, coils and plug don't overheat on Hot setting and it runs continuously.

These have poor quality safety parts that fail in about 1 season or less, the failure rate for these little cheaper units is high, go Honeywell next time!

Here's a link to the site that has a phone number to call concerning the recall of last December.
Use it to determine if your model Patton heater was included in the recall.

There was also a recall in 1985.

I have a glow warm 20000 btu natural gas unvented heater. The unit is wall mounted. It won't stay on for more than 15 minutes, then shuts itself off. Its in a corner if that makes a difference... but has...


well, these heaters are typically thermostat-bound, and I have found that they simply will not burn continuously, like a blue-flame heater. Try turning up the setting--this will make it come on/off more often, effectively heating at least one med-lg room, and partially for adjoining areas. Keep in mind that these only rated for 700-1500 SF--that is NOT the floor measurements, but square feet of airspace; eg., a 10' x 15' room has 10' x 15' x 8' (8 foot ceiling) =1200 sf. That said, My 15k btu wall unit had been the sole heating source for my entire home for 5 years, until last year, when I acquired another smaller unit. However, I typically only use a few rooms, and shut off unused areas (ya, was 'cool' in unused back room areas).

I bought it new, about one week ago. I plugged it in, sparks flew from inside and now the fan works, but there is no heat.


if you blow a limit switch the fan continues to run in an attempt to cool it down,try unpluging it and letting it sit for about 30min to reset the limit switch,plug it back in if the fan continues to run with no heat replace the limit switch.

Space heater will power up, but not start,


These fans have a safey feature (sensor) that shuts the heater off if it is tipped over. It sounds like this component is not functioning correctly - may be set wrong and will not allow the heater to turn on unless you shake it to reset the sensor. If it is still under warranty return heater, if not call Patton and ask for help.
