I love this heater a lot, but the higher setting keeps breaking. I've bought 2 of these within 2 years because the hotter setting keeps breaking only after a few months to a year of use. It is not continuously on all day every day, just for a few hours to warm the room up and then let the temp gradually come down. If I try to turn it on the higher setting, it just refuses to turn on or in the case of the first one I still have, it'll produce a burning smell and I have to quickly turn it off. I want to love this product but the fact 2 in a row have died like that is a bummer. It does the job perfectly when it is working!
