If your heating unit shuts off unexpectedly:

  1. Be sure the power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet.
  2. Check for any obstructions. If you find one, turn the heating unit OFF and unplug it. Wait at least 10 minutes to allow the heating unit to cool completely before removing any obstruction. When done, plug in the heating unit and follow the Operation Instructions.
  3. Push the ‘Reset Button’ located on the top left section of the back of the unit. This button resets the built-in 15 amp circuit breaker. This feature protects the unit from any electrical surges that may occur.

If your heating unit tips over:

  1. Set the unit back in its upright position and check for any damage. If damage is detected unplug unit and contact customer service for further assistance.
  2. The unit automatically shuts off when tipped over. If no damage is detected, push the power button to turn the unit back on.
