Question about DeLonghi TRD0715T Oil Filled Radiator Heater

1 Answer

Won't heat I have an oil filled heater, my dog knocked my heater over and it fell on a sleeping bag. I didn't even know it fell, so it didn't fall on a hard floor. So i picked it up and turned it off and unplugged it. I tried to turn it back on and the lights come on, but now it won't heat. It has only been used for 1/2 a season, so it's almost new.

Won't heat my studio - even on "HIGH"

Does it get hot? If so, that is all you will get! It is not made to heat a room of 20 X 15 X 8 feet high. That is 2400 cubic feet of air space that may or may not be insulated. You need a quartz heater or two that are designed with fans to heat larger areas (see the specifications on them). The oil filled radiator is to put next to your rocking chair or under your desk near your feet!

Will my down-filled sleeping bag get ruined if it gets wet?

If your down-filled sleeping bag gets wet the only thing that will be ruined is a good nights sleep. If the insulation gets wet, you should throw it in the dryer on low heat for about 30 minutes.

My dog knocked something heavy onto my heater and broke two of the wheels. I need to know what material the wheels are made of (what type of plastic) so I can try to fix them. I think they can be glued...

ok well you shouldn't need any special material should be able to glue back or find four wheels that bolt to a tall toolbox which should be cheap at any hardware or lowes, homedepo store drill a hole where ever is not the oil tank, preferably where the tires use to be u know like where the old wheels useta be bolt down an good to go

I switch it on and with in ten mins its smokeing, whats the best way to get it fix it

Hey how's it goin'?

I had the same problem too.

There's a couple reasons the heater will do that, neither of them are good.

One reason is the heater has developed a leak and you can't fix that. The units are oil filled and if it was dropped or the dog chewed a hole in it ( I had a pretty mean dog ) then you can't seal it, it's time for it to go.

How the heater works;
Oil inside the unit heats up, expands and holds heat while you're getting warm. If the unit is leaking oil, you might even smell something like motor oil burning. That would be a gigantic tel-tale sign.

One other reason, and I had this problem too, is the wiring is getting tired and the wire jackets are getting too hot.

There's a couple reasons for that too, but unless you're a wiring expert or electrician, you're outta luck again.

Once the jackets of these heaters wiring starts to burn, there's no turning back. You need to replace all the wiring and terminals or solder new wiring inside. Special wiring, terminals the whole nine yards.

Rewiring one of these baby's is a job for an expert, even I might shy away from one. And I've been in the industry for 35 years.

The final question is this;
Is your dog's life worth saving $20 at a garage sale?
I know, I know, it can be a toss up.



Good luck.

Heater fell over while transporting in car,now it will not heat up even though the on lights come on to set power..

with heater unplugged, check all connections with an ohm meter, sounds like something got jarred loose. also check heating elements for resistance. if no ressistance, probably a broken heating element.

My heater won't turn on.

There really isn't anyway to give a difinitive answer to your problem. it requires some trouble shooting. Did you blow the breaker on the circuit feeding the outlet you had your heater plugged into? Is there a power indicator light on your heater? If so, when the dog tipped the heater over was it still working (ON)? If no indicator the problem gets more tedious and techy.

Oil heaters are great and simply designed. They are closed systems with heating elements that connect to the other end of the wire that plugs into your wall. The switch is in between the two to allow current to pass or not. If any of those connections was shaken loose by the fall it would cause your heater to malfunction. That's something you (or a service person) can only verify by opening the unit up. Hope this has helped...:-)
