Question about Honeywell HZ-680 Oil Filled Radiator Heater
I noticed last year that oil was leaking around the fins and wonder if this heater is safe to use, any solutions? thanks
Here is a REAL solution... as i just fixed this myself... what you need to do is take apart the heater... this is easy to do, all you need is a screwdriver for this part... on top there is a panel, this can be taken off with a butter knife if you dont have a screwdriver... anyways, underneath this panel are 2 screws, take those out, flip the heater upside down, and take out the other two screws... now the whole side panel will come off... after that, you pull all three plugs off the thermostat with the heater on the flat side opposite, next use a pinch pliers to remove the bolt that the the plugs were just attached to, the next part they tell you not to do, well i guess they tell you not to do any of this... lol... but yeah, put engine oil inside... it heats the same as the heater oil... put the plug back in, and use Liquid Nails clear sealant under the electrical stuff (do not put it on the metal part surrounding it as this will be come a fire hazard then) reconnect the plugs in the order you took them off from (white one is on the bottom) put the heater back together and you are golden! XD hope this helps!
