Region :RomaniaWhat region have you selected ?
I tried switching to Region : Romania but still no firmware updates.
Apart from that - good news and thanks for sharing , hope the firmware update will really fix the issue.
HI i did actually move the sensor. it was absolutley better and the heater now runs a bit calmer and not full effect all the time.I can confirm the FW update in the case of the German region (used in Hungary)!
(it popped up a few hours ago)

Experienced the same difference between the measured temperatures in the case when the heater works or it's turned off.
I'll try to "play" with the sensor as @rororo mentioned it, however, this is definitely progress about the original issue.
Hi, i voided the warranty of course and started with putting that just above the panel. i have another i will try to put it below the panel to see the differences.
Thanks, @TomTom66!Hi, i voided the warranty of course and started with putting that just above the panel. i have another i will try to put it below the panel to see the differences.
but i can already say that it runs on lower effects. and before my kid could burn himself on the cover. even indoors in a warm haous.
Hi, I had the similar problem. Room temp was 22 and the heater was set on 18. But it was still heating...problem was a very cold tiled floor. The temp sensor is located on the bottom of the heater and was reading the floor temp. You can place a towel or something else underneath the heater to avoid this. Than probably the problem is solved. ( Hopefully )Hello All,
I have a few functionally related questions about the Smart Space Heater S that I was hoping you might be able to help me with.
I purchased 2 pcs of this heater yesterday in the Official Xiaomi shop, Debrecen, Hungary (230V; EU plug).
I set up the heaters in the Xiaomi Home app successfully and start using them.
During the operation, I discovered several & similar malfunctions in the case of both heaters. Based on the product datasheet, I believe those aren’t normal and expected.
These malfunctions do not depend on the way how I’m using/operating the heaters (by application or by manually).
1, The heaters do not switch off when reaching the setup temperature in the constant temp mode. They still operate with a ~800W power (I measured the power consumption with a smart plug) without decreasing it or turn off.
I stopped them manually when the tested room temperature reached 28 celsius. It seems the digital thermometer or the regulator circuit does not work properly.
2, When I turn off & on the heater it starts working with the highest power ~2000W regardless of the set temperature. If I modify the constant temp, it will switch back again to ~800W and stay there until I power it off manually.
I believe these unexpected habits have to be fixed somehow because it can cause fire, therefore in this state the products are dangerous! In addition, it does not make any sense the six different temperature ranges and a lot of other features. I also found comments on different social platforms (Youtube, Facebook) where the users experienced the same issues.
Do you know or experienced similar issues with Smart Space Heater S?
Is there any chance to fix these somehow (a firmware upgrade or a component level repair)?
I’m asking this because those functions were the main reasons why I bought these products. To be honest, without them, this will be only a (dangerous) stock heater and for this price, a much better and safer one can be purchased from another manufacturer.
Thanks in advance!
I cannot update - the update shown but doens't do anything ! Doesn't start downloading !Region :Romania
The first time I received an update at Mi Home. When I entered the Mi Home application, I saw that an update for the heater appears. I did that update. It's still not clear if everything works. I'll come up with details in the next few days.
Same problem here. The update shows, i push "upgrade now", says "downloading 0%" for one or two seconds, and then does nothing.
I've tried a different region with the same result.
