Question about Pelonis WM-HO202C Oil Filled Radiator Heater

2 Answers

Pelonis HO-0128 makes strange noise

It sounds like the oil is squirting through some interior part. The noise lasts for a few seconds. The unit is not leaking, but I'm concerned that something is wrong with it.

Nothing wrong with it. This is a normal sound made as the oil heats. As the heater heats up, the sounds should subside.

Mine does that too. not to stated that our noise is one in the same, but I have located my high pitch noise coming from the controls (not the actual radiating heated part). I can quickly get rid of the sound by flipping the control setting from high to medium, then back to high. I too am concerned that there might be something inherently wrong with the heater, and that it might not last, or worse, catch fire later on. I will be returning and getting a replacement for it today. Got 2 of these heaters from Wally World, one is noisy and one is not.

Why wont 1996 Honda prelude start? No power at all. Turn key on lights (bells and whistle) so to speak work for a second. Now nothing no power

The battery sounds like it's dead, it may have enough power to make noise for a few but it not charging. May also be the alternator going bad and causing the battery not to fun

Model HO-0250H, heater makes a pair of snapping noises one after the other, perhaps from expansion/contraction. Heater is two months old.

The unit uses oil to create residual heat. The oil can contain small amounts of moisture and when the unit heats that moisture turns to steam, Steam has a great expansion ratio. When the steam condenses back to moisture it can conglomerate into large water droplets instead of being dispersed. This means that when it heats back up the steam expansion is more radical and makes noise. Unless the unit starts leaking oil, it is fine to continue using it.

Mine is only a few months old. It is a Westpointe radiator type. The orange light is lit. It just doesn't heat anymore. D. Weaver/

if you dust sweep vacuum around these heaters they pick-up small particals of dust which rises up thru the heater and get deposited on the curcuit board and wiring thru convection and they go into default mode, clean thoroughly, make sure it's unplugged be fore you start
