Oil-filled SoftHeat baseboard heater makes loud gurgling noises

We have several 5 - 6 yr. old 'Cadet 'SoftHeat' baseboard heaters - one now makes a loud gurgling noise while in operation. It ised to be completely silent. There is no sign of oil leakage. The product is now possibly out of warranty.

    Nope - this is a self-contained, sealed, plug-in heater with glycol fluid. The Model number I quoted is right on it.

I work at Cadet and what has happened is the heat transfer fluid which is a water glycol mix, the heater has a small pin hole leak that has allowed the water to evaporate out. There is no fix for this so the heater will need to be replaced. If your heater is still under warranty they will replace it at no charge. Call 360-397-2505 and ask for Tech Support. Make sure you have your model number handy.

I have the same (I think) electric baseboard heater (no, it's not a boiler system). Actually, we have three. Recently, one started making the loud noises, then it stopped working two days ago.

I'm wondering if the original poster ever found more information, or if anyone else has an idea. There is still power to the heater -- the little light on the knob is on. There's just no heat.

Thanks!

Yes it is acceptable and common practice. You do not need a neutral on a 220 Volt circuit. Just wrap it with black electrical tape so anyone who gets into the wiring later will know that both are hot. This is accepted by the National Electrical Code.

#1 you have to calculate the heatloss of your rooms,that will tell you ur wattage require. Oil filled or not,it's just as dry. As far as ur load to panel breakers, a rule of thumb is approx 3600 watts for 20 amps,using a number 12 wire. But ur wall heaterS should suffice

Good day, I just moved into my new home on August


It sounds to me that the motors on the units in question, may need a few drops of oil on the bearings. I have seen motors in these heaters and most do have a place to oil them, they wouldn't have sealed bearings as the newer motors.Check the blower wheels also for dirt build up on the blades, as this will cause them to be out of balance and cause some noise also.

Loud humming


If this is an electric resistance heater then there is no power supply or transformer. I had a baseboard heater that would hum loudly and I found there's a wire that runs along the bottom to connect the far end of the heat element to the electrical wiring at the supply end. This wire becomes magnetized from the current flowing through it and vibrates in the channel it runs through. I was able to open this channel and squirt a bit of silicone caulk in to keep the wire from vibrating and the hum is gone.
