    Thanks all, for your comments! They're much appreciated. As an update, now my heater won't even turn on (usually there's a red light showing it's at least working, or has an electrical current)... Any ideas? Thanks so much!!!

SOURCE: Pelonis HO-0128 makes strange noise

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

Missmanda your heater should be fine , just put it in its normal position for 2 or 3 hours to allow the oil to drain down correctly, during this time visually check it for oil leaks ( the oil is usually vegetable oil ), look for oil drips around the base and from the side covers , if you find any do not use the heater , when you do come to turn it on stay with the heater for at least 30 minutes to check for smoke,sparking or any other evidance of damage.
Hope this helps

Pelonis heater smells like burning something


Three possibilities come to mind: First, there may be some foreign objects stuck between the sections of the coils where they connect or in their individual holes, the next is that the cord or outlet in your house is getting too hot (the circuit is being overloaded, perhaps; and finally, the clincher, you have a tiny oil leak in the coils themselves.

I wondering if my Pelonis gas-filled heater is emitting dangerous fume causing me to feel depressed... do you have the phone number of the company?


Have you tried not using the heater for several days to a week, to see if your depressive state improves? That would be the litmus test involving the heater, wouldn't it?

Never the less, their phone # is 1-866-876-4332

Doesn't heat up as first bought three years ago.


Not unless it leaks oil on the floor. The oil has nothing to do with heating, your unit is actually an electric heater with oil added as "thermal ballast."

The first suspect is the plug that you plug into the wall. These sometimes overheat and electrical continuity is lost.

Solution: new plug from the hardware store. Cut off the old one and take it with you so you can get something very similar. Don't do anything if you're not comfortable with handyman-level electrical repairs.

Next suspect is the cord itself. These have a hard life on electric heaters.

After that you're inside the unit. First suspect is the thermostat, since it's the only moving part. A burned out heating element, or a burned wire connection, is possible, but not the first thing to look for.

Generally, this kind of heater often lasts for years and years--and often doesn't. Once you're past replacing the plug it's not unlikely that repair will cost more than a new heater.

I'm not shilling for Home Ripoff, but they have a $60 "baseboard" (type) heater with remote control that I'm looking at, I've read good reviews about it. However look closely, it's very long, and sticks out from the baseboard more than you might expect.

The oil does not circulate or lubricat anything. It just holds heat. No harm done.

Won't heat


Is there a thermostat? where are you from and do you understand electrics? do you have a volt meter?
