Question by jay: Why does my forced air electric heater shut off after a few minutes?
I have a Bryant forced air heater in my basement. I have to hit the breaker on the unit to get the thing to kick in for heat but it shuts off after a few minutes. Is this the heater thats bad or the thermostat?
Answer by Jay
If you have to reset the unit’s breaker switch it isn’t simply the thermostat. Like a hairdryer, the breaker switch will kick in if the heating elements become overheated or due to some other malfunction. If the unit has a filter, check to see if it’s clogged up or if the air is being obstructed for some other reason while flowing through the unit.
