Question about Power Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a ComfortZone Quartz Infrared Heater Model CZ-1500P. I just noticed the plug was too hot to hang on to. Any idea what may be causing this?

The unit is still working great and I hate to get rid of it. I tried a couple different power outlets with same result.

According to the call line, hold down the up, down and enter buttons all at the same time and it should clear it. I took mine back and had it replaced so I never had a chance to try this.

I have the Comfortzone Infrared heater. The heating unit will not kick on. It tries to but then a code comes up that looks like AOS or AO5.


sounds like the outlet is not enough power for the heater. Remember with an electric heater youre dealing with watts and amps, It should be plugged into its own dedicated service for proper operating.

Unless you want a new house, stop using that heater immediately. There are severe internal electric problems with your heater. Since it's already 3 years old, I'm not sure it's worth trying to repair. With what you described, I'm surprised it didn't trip one of you circuit breakers.

Be safe, Don't continue to try to use this heater.

Marvin Quartz heater element


Very simple to install the replacement element. Insert one end of the element into the bottom receptacle on either side, press the element down (it's spring-loaded), then slide the top of the element into the center opening of the top receptacle, push to appropriate side (the side of receptacle, same as the bottom), then release. Then do the same with the other element (if both are out).
