3 There is a thermal protection cutout switch (on the top of the heater box, which you can see through the grille). When this trips the fan continues to run, but the unit blows cold air only as the heater circuit has been disabled. You can get it to 'reset' by switching the unit off and waiting for about a minute for the bimetal cutout to close again. Note that this is NOT the adjustable thermostat heat control on the front panel. It is a protection against overheating.
