Anyone have any issues with the Fluval M series heater being placed horizontally?

From searching the web, I get 50/50 on it working and not working (breaking/blowing up). Checked with Fluval and they say to not use it horizontally as there is a sensor on top of it. not sure how it matters but they did say it can be used diagonally.

Being able to place a heater vertically and diagonally - as well as HORIZONTALLY - would be a selling point. The fact that the manufacturer stipulates NOT to place it horizontally is a recommendation to heed - presumably for safety's sake.

I turned mine sideways for a few weeks, didn't seem to want to heat up properly. Not sure why.
Yeah same here. Sideways don't work well for me.
