    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fix that cold bathroom This 1500 watt in-ceiling heater cured our cold bathroom syndrome. It requires a dedicated circuit. It works so well, we only have to have it on for a few minutes.

    The heater just went out. How do I fix it? Is there a fuse or would I need to replace the heater?

    Asked by: Bo
    I have replaced the heater element assembly (part 89756000 about $25 on this site) several times. It incorporates a thermal protection "fuse" that is not replaceable. The fan, motor, and housing have always been fine on my unit. To prevent overheating and triggering the thermal protection, inspect and clean the fan/heater unit as often as necessary in your conditions. For us (old house in Pacific NW), we need to clean it at least annually.

    Heater motor shuts off within 15 seconds after turning on

    The model is 9960-R02. The label on the heater motor shows model 665RP, 660RP, 605RP, 9965-R02, 9965F-R02, 9960-R02, 9905-R02. After a few weeks used, we noticed the heater consistently turned off within 15 seconds after being turned on. With the cover opened and the heater turned on, we observed a light reflected on top of the heater motor in the housing unit. It went away when the heater shut itself off within 15 seconds after it was turned on.

    can we use a thermostat with this product and maintain a temp of 70

    Asked by: cougar
    Thank you for the question on the model 9960 heater/light. It is possible to use a thermostat to control the heater portion of the 9960. Please remember that the 9960 is to be used as supplemental heat only and not for the main heating source in a room.

    Replacing light bulbs

    How exactly does the glass lens open for access to burned out bulbs
    Asked by: MajorK
    Thank you for your question on the model 9960 heater/light/night light. There is a plastic bezel around the lens that has two tabs on it. You would need to push the tabs in towards the lens and pull down. The lens and bezel assembly should swing down for access to the light bulbs. For further assistance please contact our Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151.
