I purchased two of these units - both failed after a few weeks.Problem was identical - the units would work fine, but when shut off, would not power on again.The indicator light might blink, but then nothing.
I have found the problem is the cheap, polished 2 prong power plugs on these heaters.After a few uses they do not conduct enough current for the electronic control to be able to apply full power to the element.
The fix?Simple.Use an emory board to "roughen up" the plug power prongs so that a decent contact is made when the plug is inserted in the outlet.Then, buy a decent three conductor, grounded power cord and replace the AC cord entirely.At least, cut off the cheap power plug and replace it with a good plug with conductors that can carry the current needed.
If you can't do this competently, take the units to someone qualified to perform the repairs.Obviously, poor electrical connections can cause fires - and would, if these units didn't have the "smarts" to see the faulty power and shut off the unit entirely.
