Dead Oil Filled Radiator

I have had the unit for over a year, and it is now dead. Looks like others have had the same problem with other brands, something about a power switch failure. These are relatively cheap units but I would like to fix it for less than the cost of a replacment if I can. An e-mail to the company has not produced any results to date. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...

    I have the same problem with my oil filled heater. A thermostat switch is gone and we cannot find one to fit. We tried calling the company and they said that unit is discontinued (of course). I have tried a number of small appliance repair shops and plumbers in the area, but no one can help. We bought it 3 yrs ago and only used it for a week or two, so it is not worn out by any means. There has to be a thermostat switch on this planet somewhere.

    Fahrenheat oil- filled heater worked fine last season for use, 3-5 times. This season used once and it heated beautifully, now there is no heat although it is turned to hightest level. Can't find s# or other manufacture details on heater. Manual is misplaced. Woe is me and I am cold. Cold-one.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FIX YOUR HEATER ...THAT IS STUPID AND WILL MORE THAN LIKELY CAUSE A FIRE. SO DONT. Just call the 1-800 number on the back of the unit. The customer rep will tell you what to do from there.

On lakewood radiator that was dead I found problem caused by what I believe is fuse opening. Part is located in white wire which goes from thermostat to common terminal on radiator terminal block. The part is in series with this wire and is covered by a white movable sleeve and is dressed/located under the terminal block.

If this is a generic problem then it is most likley the THERMOSTAT. This is the switch on the end of the radiator that regulates the temperature. It is possible to bypass the thermostat so that the radiator is permanantly on.

Oil Filled Radiator Heater Leaking

<p>A very common and increasing popular source of <b>supplemental heat</b> in the last few years has been the <b>oil filled electric radiator. </b> <br /> <p>These <b>radiator heaters</b> are filled with an oil that circulates through the fins of the heater and is heated by <b>electric heating elements</b>. The result is a steady even type of heat that has a lower surface temperature then many <b>space heaters</b>, making them a great way to get <b>supplement heating</b> into a room when you have pets, small children or combustibles near by.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>One of the big questions that comes up with these <b>oil filled heaters</b> is what to do if they start to leak. The answer is that if the<b> oil heater</b> starts to leak then it is no good anymore and needs to be disposed of. These<b> heaters are filled with oil</b> at the factory and then are sealed tightly. Because of this there is no need to ever <b>refill the heater with oil</b> again. The heaters are sealed with the proper oil inside for the <b>best heating efficiency. </b> <br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>So what this means is that if you have one of these <b>oil filled radiator heaters, </b>you will never have any <b>maintenance</b> or worries about <b>adding oil to the heater</b>. But if there ever is a leak then the heater is also no good and will need to be throw out and replaced. Very few of these <b>oil filled heat units</b> ever leak, but as is always the case there are always some that do.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>A word of caution about heating efficiency. Always remember that when <b>heating with electricity</b>, the <b>laws of physics</b> always apply. <b>For every 1 KW of electric you will only ever get 3415 BTU's of heat.</b><br /> <p>There is no way to get any more or any less than that, so if anyone tries to tell you that their electric heater is more efficient then the next one they are not telling the truth.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p><br /> <br />

Hi Our Delonghi Rapido heater has just started leaking oil, maybe a mL or 2 a day. Can this be repaired?

When a compresser leaks oil it is dead. If this is an air/heat unit you are out of luck. If anything I said does not match the facts of your system disregard my comment.

Reposting: I have a lakewood oil filled radiator heater that will NOT turn on. Is there someplace or something I can do to have it fixed?

Depending on its age, you can return it to the place of purchase. Because the cost of repair will almost certainly exceed the cost of replacement, it is not a practical option. If you have a friend who is comfortable with electrical systems, you could try that. There are a few brands of oil filled heater that have recalls. The consumer safety bureau or the manufacturer may have information about a recall on your product. This is a good time of year to purchase a new one as many stores are just starting sales on heating appliances. Farmerbear at FixYa

It is completely dead. where can I find the fuse

How do you know that your unit has a fuse? If it does look at it and give me the information off of it and I can probably tell you where to get it.

I have an oil filled radiator heater. The brand name on the cover is TouchPoint. It looks like the control and form factor of the DeLonghi brand of oil heaters. The unit was made in China. It was tipped...

I am about to replace the switche on my DeLonghi, but have not received it yet. If you can wait a few days I will post the wiring points here. I'm cold too!

Honeywell HZ-709 oil filled radiator heater-all controlls work but no heat produced. Possible reason?? Thanks

There is a bottom element and a top element so the elements could be dead.

More likey, there could be no power coming from the wall - there are switches on the front that need to light up or the thermostat could be set to off.
