The Big Maxx Forced Air Unit Heater is efficient and effective convection heat for your garage or workshop for residential or commercial use. If you are looking to turn your garage or barn into a work space you can use all year-round, you will have to find a safe quiet and reliable heat source. The heaters use a built-in electric high velocity fan to pull cool air into the rear of the heater, across a heat exchanger, then force warm air into the surrounding areas. These heaters only require 115v AC power and can be vented vertically or horizontally - please check local codes and restrictions. With a mounting clearance of only 1 inch, the supplied brackets, external access to power, and thermostat connections - installation is a cinch. With the durable spark ignition and robust factory standard self-diagnostic control module, we offer a 3 year factory warranty on all parts and burners and a 10 year warranty on any defects in the heat exchanger. This heater offers the operating versatility and safety that you have come to expect from Mr. Heater.
UNIT HEATER FAQS
The connections are on the terminal strip on the circuit board marked in white, R for red and W for white.
Check the 3amp fuse on the upper left portion of the Circuit Board.
Check your connection at your thermostat. Check for broken wire to the thermostat. If the wires are good disconnect from the thermostat and jumper them together to start the heater automatically. If the heater runs the thermostat is bad.
MHU50 uses 2.3amps, MHU80 uses 2.3amps, and the MHU125 is 3amps
The Unit Heaters are 80% efficient.
Horizontal Vent Kit has to be stainless steel, which is more expensive.
No. If you use compressed air through your pressure valve on any gas heater, you will blow out the gasket and it will destroy the gas valve and will void your warranty.
Most likely not. The pressure switch being faulty is the least likely issue. Please execute the following tests to eliminate all possibilities. First, pull the vacuum tube off the pressure switch and blow into it. If it does not have good flow or no flow at all, then clean out the vacuum hose connector with a 5/64in drill bit. If it is not that, then turn the heater on with the vacuum hose connected to the pressure switch. Turn the thermostat on then suck on the hose to create a vacuum and pinch the hose to keep the pressure. If the heater fires up, reconnect the hose to the hose connecter on the vent motor. Once that is done, if this shuts the heater down then you have something blocking your exhaust. If after these steps the heater still does not function, then replace the pressure switch.
