No Kristen, I use the same size of heated pail and mine had been fine (touch wood) could it be something simple like the water is warm enough it isn't kicking in or maybe the plug became loose? Hope you can figure it out soon, this is my first year using one and I wouldn't be without it!!!

Like anything else that is convenient and useful I bet you will end up having to buy a whole new bucket, I know there costly,I paid $60 for my 16 gallon heated tub. But oh how nice

I think it's a conspiracy and that they are set to expire after exactly one year.

We've had to replace our 5 gallon heateds every year.

Oh NO!! I just ordered one, and it was right around $48.00.
I'd HATE to have to replace it next year, YIKES!!

With electrical items, it can be one of any number of things.

The heater element burned out.

The sensor is shot.

The cord is frayed.

The plug is loose.

It got banged somehow and that loosened something or disconnected something that allowed it to function.

Without seeing it, we really cannot help. Do you have an electrician in the family? Or can you take the bucket to one for a look see?
