I lost it in another thread because I dislike Amart Alecs and those
who thrives on attacking others.
Just want to let you know that I appreciate the help I got from nice
If anyone can gudie me to a group where I can post a question on
Holmes 1 Touch portable heater, I'd appreciate it. I need to post a
question on the item I have (see pic below).
You can ask it here. Not a bad looking heater, the same power as most space
heaters, but with a small fan and small size. If price is a concern, you
can find heaters with the same output for half that price. They may or may
not fit your needs.
I got it for $25 at Walmart 3 years ago. Until recently, I didn't use
it much - I used to only to take the chill out of the bed sheet for
like a VERY short period in winter. I just sleep w/o heater, using
many layers of blankets with one being handquilted wool.
But recently, I got creative and got silly I migth add. I placed the
unit under the sheet next to me under to give an enclosed environment
cus my bedroom is really big, actully, because the room connects to
the area where there are closets and basins, preventing em to use any
(I have recently sealed that connection by putting a styrofaom at
night so that I can use oil-filled radiant heater and have the room
not cold when I get out of bed in the morning. Also, by keeping the
bedroom to the hallway closed and using oil-filled radiant heater, I
find that the central heater (via the thermostat from downstairs) can
warm the hallway area of upstairs better. This hallway is open to
downstairs since the upstairs of the house not for the whole house. I
don't know the right words to explain. )
Anyway, I was abusive of this small heater, not waiting for 10 mins
before trying to start again when it stops partly because I didn't
remember about the tiny print on the back that says to wait for 10
mins when ti stops. (I just saw it when broguth next to my PC for no
So it stopped working altogether and I wonder whether it's just the
wire blowing up. I have a family friend, like a brother, an
Electrical Engineer, who will be visiting me in a week or two. I am
thinking to ask him to take a look if it is just the wire. This unit
has some sort of sensor, right? Could that be that sensor?
I don't want to bother him if it is the sensor that got damaged
You put an electric heater under a sheet. OK. You'd better read every word
of the owner's manual that someone else pointed you to. It doesn't matter if
it's for a slightly different model, or for yours specifically. Read every

not to use the product while soaking in the tub was a bit over the
top. Now I'm not so sure. =:-0

I think it will be about 350, and my normal body temp on the outside
is 98 or less.
And then there are the ones that tell you to let things cool for a
minute, or cookies for 45 minutes, when they are their best when warm.
You have to know what to ignore, too.
Hey, I was testing, okay? It's not liek I put it there and fall
asleep. I tuned it off before I sleep. And I wasn't doing it except
for a couple of nights when it was too cold. I didn't like to use
central heating because I hate getting out of bed to turn it off. if I
don't, it gets hot and wake me up in the middle of the night.
Optimum night temperature is 64 degrees when you're
all snugged under the covers. A setback thermostat could do
that for you automatically, and it's usually just a matter of
putting the right colored wire to the right spot.

You guys are talking as if you know w/o asking me how the air

Of course, you can tell me to get a professional look into fixing ...

I deal with it the way I see fit. If I need any suggestion, I will ask

Good knowledge is how little you know. At least I learned that, LOL!
Fixing 3 year old heater by a pro? Time to replace it with new one, IMO.
Heater needs air to circulate, never operate it under the blanket on
bed. If you leave your bedroom door open during night, your room might
Younger as in what age range? I have been like this all my life, but
was in hot and humid climate. Wearing cotton socks was enough.
If there really is such a thing, I would check into it. After
realizing how unproductive I have become int he morning when trying to
work in the study room ( faced away from the rising sun) after moving
into this hosue, I started wearing cashmere blend leg warmer and it
solved the problem. Came from another state (hot and humid) and
didn't realize that leg warmer would do the trick though I did get
different sweater and jackets and cashmere blend socks.
"JoeSpareBedroom", others. C'mon, find somewhere else to get your jollies, OK?
Obviously this is someone who just needs a few questions answered. Are there no
elders or others in your family needing a bit of extra help (in more ways than
one)? Don't you recognize that? Is this what you do about it?
