I think what might have happened was where the red wire connects to the coil there is a connector and it was loose which resulted in a short which consequently melted the wires. I was very lucky I had only left the heater unattended for 10-15 minutes as even though this heater is supposed to have a high temperature shutoff it hadn't kicked in.
I ended up buying a 10 gauge wire from Lowes and replacing the burnt wire. I soldered the wire to the limit switch and the coil so as not to have another loose connection issue. The heater works as it should again but now whenever I leave the room I'll turn it off and when I'm not using the heater I'll keep it unplugged. I definitely don't trust it!
I started off not with this NewAir G56 5600w heater, but rather with one of those infrared home space heaters at 1500w. That device increased the temperature of my garage by a mere 2 degrees. Granted, it's a large 2 car garage (26'x26') and generally un-insulated, so I wasn't expecting miracles, but come ON... 2 degrees? Really? ...and the cost for that 2 degrees was a whopping 20kWh+ per day which was unacceptable. But that wasn't this heater, it was the other heater, which I have yet to return.
After a lot more searching, I found this heater, and thought I'd give it a try. I had to have a 240v line installed in my garage... so please be aware that the plug type is a standard NEMA 6-30, which is a 30A 240v plug, a perfectly normal type for it's specifications... but will require an electrician (or you if you know what you're doing) to install the appropriate line and receptacle. So how did it work? Pretty good actually! With it 20 degrees outside (Western PA), it raised my garage temperature to about 38 degrees... not awesome, but definitely not bad either, since the goal was to make sure the garage stayed above freezing. Then I learned about weather stripping. (aha!) The garage on this house we just bought had NO garage door weather stripping, and had some gapping; so I bought some from Home Depot and installed it for about $75. Now the garage gets to 48 degrees with it 18 degrees outside, with the heater on full blast. (After all, the garage still isn't properly insulated, and a pretty large room, so I still wasn't expecting a 70 degree vacation spot.) The downside of full blast however is that it's expensive to operate, with the daily kWh usage of about 25 kWh... so I tested over a number of days in various conditions, and found that at the lowest setting it kept the garage just above freezing (about 38 degrees or so) and barely ever needed to turn itself on to accomplish that - the end result was about 2 to 5kWh per day (about 75 cents per day) just to keep things from freezing. And it gets the garage plenty warm enough to work out there with a sweatshirt or jacket on if I want it to by cranking it up for a few hours, and at all times keeps our fridge from freezing over, so all in all... good enough for me!!
As for the quality, it's worked since day one, is reasonably quiet for a garage heater, has no smell, doesn't take up a lot of space, and puts out a nice stream of very warm air. (Warm enough to warm up your hands, not hot enough to burn your house down.) I've had it about a month now, and I am glad that I bought it.
I'm not sure if it will suit your needs or not, but if your goal is to inexpensively keep things just above freezing in un-insulated space, then this will work nicely, at least if your garage is 26'x26' or smaller (I didn't test in a larger space.) If your goal is to have a nice toasty 65 to 70 degree garage for a man cave... then if your garage is fully insulated, I'm guessing it'll work nicely, if not insulated, then you'd better have a smaller garage or be prepared for an awesomely high electric bill to have it comfortable enough to use. Bottom line, I definitely recommend it, but just make sure it fits your goals and expectations.
I hope this helps someone decide whether or not to purchase the unit.
EDIT: After a bit more time with the unit, while the heater works well at producing heat, the thermostat's not very consistent at all. As such I've docked it an additional star. I very carefully adjusted it just a little bit at a time until I hit my 38 degree target consistently... then one day, voila, it's 20 degrees in there, and it wasn't turning on at all. I adjusted the thermostat upwards, and it eventually clicked on, but then it ran for a bit too long. I tried multiple times to find a "stable" thermostat setting, but it's just too inconsistent to rely on every day. To compensate, I'm building what's essentially a new thermostat with other parts here on Amazon that will serve to switch the unit on and off by giving/cutting power to it with much more reliability. For those of you that need to do this, find an SSR compatible temperature controller, an appropriate thermocouple for air temperature (essentially an electronic thermometer), an SSR (solid state relay) to enable/disable the 220v power, a heat sink for the SSR (if it doesn't come with one), a fan for the heat sink to make it more effective (I'm using an 80mm 12v computer case fan), some heavy duty wiring, and an enclosure that will fit that stuff in it.
EDIT2: The homemade thermostat is complete, working extremely well. (Perfectly in fact!) Here's the parts list:
Arlington EB1212-1 Electronic Equipment Enclosure Box, 12" x 12" x 4", Non-Metallic, 1-Pack
AGPtek PID Temperature Controller TA4-SNRWith 1 alarm
DC 3-32V Input AC 24-380V Output 60A SSR Solid State Relay w Aluminum Heat Sink
KingWin 80 x 80 mm Long Life Bearing Case Fan CF-08LB Black
12V 2A DC Universal Regulated Switching Power Supply (for 80mm fan, above)
-100-1250C 13mm Thread 5mm Probe K Type Thermocouple Temperature Sensor
You'll also need some 14 or 16 gauge AC wiring with plug for 110v for electronics, a length of 10 gauge Romex cabling for 240v, a NEMA 6-30 plug AND receptacle. This will allow you to plug the heater into the new enclosure, and plug the enclosure into the wall socket. You'll also need a couple of good screwdrivers, wire stripper, drill with hole saw and/or jigsaw for cutting plastic, etc.

They said they don't charge US customers for shipping but they charge Canadian customers. Look elsewhere if your North of the border!
