Sorry you're having trouble.
I'll do my best to help and opt out of the question if I cannot.
Did the air get restricted through the inlet grille for any reason?
Does anything on the control panel light up at all?
The air filter in the back was a little clogged up but I cleaned it out, and no lights on the control panel light up.
Sorry I missed you online.
I've never actually worked on one of these..but checking Edenpures' parts list...there appears to be a small control fuse on the PC board. Possible something zapped that fuse.
Other than that..there probably isn't much as far as 'repair' that can be done short of replacing components like the control board.
If you're adventurous you might try taking it apart and see if the fuse appears to be blown. I cannot tell by their pic if it's a simple plug in type...most furnaces nowdays use an automotive type plug in fuse...
Although from the pic it appears to be an odd amperage fuse. Something like 1.8 amps. But it would be the place where I would start if it were mine.
Sorry my link didn't work just right...you'll have to copy/paste into your toolbar
I'll check into it real quick. thanks.
IF yours is just like the photo..it's the blue object in the upper right part of the board near the terminal strip
Wow, you wouldn't believe the amount of screws in this thing.
Ahhh isn't going to fall apart huh?
Well, it's not the fuse
I think it may be the power transformer
it's a little brown on one side
Ahh that would do it also
I googled parts...there seems to be alot of parts dealers for Edenpure with a pretty wide range in price...
did you locate the fuse?
Yea, it's a 250v 1.6a
Do you own a volt meter?
you could connect the transformer to 110...and check output...
It should be around 13 volts output
Unplug it from the board and just check the transformer output
That would tell u if it's good or bad
That's about 30 more screws lol
I'll check it out quick
I may have to leave after awhile...but I'll check back in later this eve if I miss you.
Did the fuse appear ok?
should I put it on dc 10 50 250 or 500?
AC 50..it will probably peg 10 if it's any good
The transformer is simply knocking voltage down from 115 to 13 - 14 volts...no DC conversion
I got good power on everything
Well that's good...
did you check the fuse?
green = ground, black = hot, white =?
Yea I checked the fuse
white is neutal...assuming you're talking about the 115 volt line side?
from there I traced on back
What was the output voltage on the transformer?
No lights on the board?
As in the LEDs?
is there a power light normall?
None light up
Yea, there is a power light
Power to the board...good fuse..no lights....
No dark spots on anything on the board either
I would have to guess....(sorry no hands on experience) that the pc board died.
Yeah..sometimes those things die with no visual clues.
That's what I was pointing towards =/
Good thing it's only a $40 board
Well at least you know it's not the transformer
really..not much else in there on the control side that could cause it.
The transformer would've been cheaper haha
What does a whole unit run?
Paid around $300 for it about 4-5 years ago
Was not worth it.
Wow..that's quite a bit...
Guess you'll have to evaluate if it's worth it to try and repair
"Lower your bills!" Lowers the propane bills, skyrockets the electric
Yes...halogen lights are not cheap to run
they make tons of heat...translated..your meter spins
Right. Luckily I'm on a shut off protection plan because I'm paying my fiance's way overdue bill. So I'm only paying $140/month until that's paid off
That's why I'm using the Edenpure right now
I can relate..!
Sorry it died on you..
For what it's worth, I would never recommend this thing
i'll remember that!
It doesn't look like it would put out that much heat
Yea, It really doesn't heat the sq footage they claim it does
I'm pretty damn sure my living room isn't 2,000 sq foot, and It has a hard time keeping that warm
That does sound like a big claim
Wouldn't cut it here in Iowa..!
Doesn't in Michigan either
I'm sure. ...
Looks like you may need a space heater
Well..good troubleshooting....looks like you've gone about as far as you can with it for now.
Anything else I can do for you?
Yup. Thank you very much for the help
Nope, I think that'll do it
No problem....you're welcome!
Have a wonderful day, Sir!
