Life smart heater....does it have a reset button or something
Hello, Karen -
I have found several user manuals for Lifesmart heaters online and have looked through them.
None of the manuals I looked through mention reset buttons.
You have not stated the model number for your Lifesmart heater. If you choose Comment and type the model number in the Comment box, perhaps I can find the right manual for your heater and give you the link to download a copy of the manual.
Is your problem that while using your heater is suddenly turns off? If so . . . following is the information I found in the Lifesmart heater manuals (several different models:
Overheat Safety Feature
This heater is equipped with an overheat safety feature. When the internal components of the heater reach
a certain temperature that could cause overheating or possible ?re, the heater will automatically shut of
If that is the case with your heater, you will need to let it cool down before restarting it. You will need to make sure the Power button is turned to Off and then unplug the heater to allow it to cool down.
If you indicate the model of your heater, I will try to find the right user manual for you to download.
Patio doors leaking
Contact a local door installer and have them replace the weatherstripping all around. With worn weatherstripping a lot of air comes in around the rollers and at the center posts where the doors hook together (when closed). If you have a pet door installed you may be unaware that the center posts are not linking up. This is a huge gap of 1/2 to 1 inch for the wind to blow right through. Take out the pet door or find a way to close the gap where the sliding doors no longer meet.
If the major air infiltration is at the top then very likely the original installer did not keep the track straight and level -- usually this is caused by screws pulling the top track upward to the framing header. Shims should be used to correct this but cannot be done without removing trim and possibly requiring the top track be removed too. A door installer can tell you whether moving the track down or making it straight will stop the air infiltration. Weatherstripping will only seal if there is contact between the door and the top track sides -- at least as wide as the weatherstrip and completely including the weatherstrip in the contacting surfaces.
