Customer Question

Good Afternoon:
I have a Panasonic #FV-11VHL2 (fan/heat/light/night-light combo) appliance in the ceiling of my bathroom. The appliance was put in in the fall of 2012. Within the last week or so the heater does not work. The fan (vent) light and night light all are operational.
I have checked the electrical panel in the basement although only the heater does not work.
Have you heard of this problem before? What might i have to do to repair it?
Best Regards
RMC

you need to get at the heater and check it for continuity with a meter and also check the thermal high limit that is mounted on the heater for continuity. See link below part #42 is the thermal limiter and where the other arrow is pointing is the heater connections....You should have a White wire going to one side of the heater and a Black wire going from the other side of the heater to that thermal limiter. Click Here All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, tips are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!
