My heater is the HouseWarmer-35,000 BTU wall heater. When it’s idling it’s making an extremely noisy sound that I can’t quite identify.
Here’s a link to a video showing the sound: https://youtu.be/lDNbdVvY72I

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Probably the fan -- loose on its shaft or bad bearing

    Is there an auto/manual fan switch somewhere? Maybe someone pushed it by accident.
    Fan or assembly is out of balance or loose.

    Is it a really windy day where your at? Sounds like wind blowing in the exhaust vent.
