    same problem... had space heater for 5-7 years now ... won't heat up but lights are on and appears to be working. We think it needs an oil refill? no owners manual. Any help would be appreciated!

did you take it apart to see if the switch is good or the thermostat was functioning?  without looking inside, other than saying it don't work, isn't going to solve anything.

Hello I have a Delonghi KR031225 found that after turning it on and it heated up it began leaking on the bottom corner on the same panel that holds the controls? What could be wrong? Is it beyond repair?
Thanks
Mel

I have two of these Holmes 2520 heaters, and strangely enough the one that shuts off and blinks is not under recall notice, and the one that works like a champ is. So I phoned Holmes and was told that ALL 2520 heaters are under recall. Phone them and send in your cord for a new heater!!!

Worked for me also. I had some coins down in the circuits too (4 year old). Working fine now, no more blinking.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. I don't have the answer to your knob problem other than to contact a Holmes Service Center. However, this particular heater was the subject of a recall (see link below.) Maybe you can get lucky and get a whole new heater vs the knobs should you have a unit with a product code listed at the bottom of this post..

http://www.holmesoilfilledheaterrecall.com

If you are in possession of a recalled model with a listed Production Code, contact us at (800) 306-2471 to confirm your eligibility and register for a replacement heater.

There is a 4 digit production code between 2 horizontal lines about 1/3 of the way down the product label.

These are the codes elligible for replacement:
Acceptable Production Codes 2305 0106 2405 0206 2505 0306 2605 0406 2705 0506 2805 0606 2905 0706 3005 0806 3105 0906 3205 1006 3305 1106 3405 1206 3505 1306 3605 1406 3705 1506 3805 1606 3905 1706 4005 1806 4105 1906 4205 2006 4305 2106 4405 2206 4505 2306 4605 2406 4705 2506 4805 2606 4905 2706 5005 2806 5105 2906 5205 3006

I have a Holmes accutemp model HOH2520 TG-U. The heater operates for about 10-15 minutes and then the digital readout starts fluttering and it stops heating. The next day it does the same thing. Nice...

Will not turn on. Unit has been working great until tonight. Was on but now off and will not come on. Unpluged it for an hour but still not working.


This same thing happened to me, and yesterday as well no less. I've had mine for a 3-4 years. I think It had run out of oil, which is weird because I've had a Holmes heater for nearly 10 years and it still has plenty of oil left. If you shake it, can you hear the oil? I went and got another from Target last night (it was the coldest night of the year) and can hear the oil swishing around in it as I set it up. Hope it last longer than another 3-4 years or my next one will be a Holmes.

Hi i havent used my radiator for 2 years is it ok to use now in my 8 month olds bedroom? also bit of a smell coming from it cant remember if i had that before or not is this normal for these radiator?


I would think it would be fine in your childs bedroom. First i would give it a good cleaning, brush it off,vacumn of blow out with compressed air. Also I would use your heater for a day or two in open area such as living room before I would trust it. I would guess that the smell you are getting is dust and hair,lint etc. burning off. But of course we don't want to take chances with our children. My son and daughter in-law used a holmes unit in my grandsons bedroom for the last four years and have had no problems. Hope this helps. Thanks

Trying to find part number / retailer for "mode" switch.


Try looking in the owners manual it should have a parts number section in there. If you dont have the owners manual you should be able to get it from the factories website. Hope this helps.

Heater is not coming on


That makes sense, you were pulling well over over 20 amps. It doesn't make sense but it appears the heater failed. I would assume the heater has an electronic control that got zapped by the surge generated by the vacuum cleaner when the breaker tripped. If it is not an expensive heater just get a replacement. Unless you are experienced in repairing these things it is much safer just to replace it.
Good Luck,

Not heating


Sounds like either the thermostat or the element. If you hear a clicking when you rotate the thermostat you can assume that it is working. My advise is to replacethe heater. The element is sealed inside the oil chamber and the thermostat will cost almost as much as a new heater, sorry.

take a hole punch and knock a hole in each end, one on the top, one on the bottom and drain the oil into a 2 litre plastic bottle. Now you can recycle both!
