  • Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Five stars except it is noisy. Best small heater I have because it blows more hot air to where you want. Would have given it 5 stars except it was noisy. I took it apart and found a a few things that were rubbing each other and put foam weather stripping on the feet to keep from transferring the noise. Much quieter now! Dont even use the other brands I own, just the Broan. August 22, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent space heater for a small to medium size area. Very well constructed and a great value for the money. The space heater had been used last winter and preformed flawlessly. August 21, 2013

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. Unlike, the vent section of an exhaust fan, heaters are not given a definitive sound rating by the Home Ventilating Institute (HVI) or anyone else. The answer to this question depends on many factors, such as how sound the individual sleeps, etc. Unfortunately, we are unable to answer your question for these reasons.

    heater cycles continuously

    heater goes on and off and on and off and on and off and does not merely stay on for a period of time unless it is set to maximum heat.

    I tried to buy a new thermostat, but the parts store says that I do not have the correct model number....6201-A is the model number, and that is the same as the net page.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 6201 portable heater. When you set the thermostat, it will turn on when the temperature is lower than the setting and turn off when the temperature gets above the setting. It sounds like the unit is working properly. If you believe that it is defective, please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.
