There may be no provision for adding oil (?). Most oil-filled radiators are filled and sealed at the factory.

i went all over town looking for a switch. finally found two lighted switches at grainger carling technology part no. 1A824. ground down the outsides glued both together jumped across top and bottom terminal with copper wire and it seems to work fine now.only time will tell. i hate our throw away society which the junk imported in from china seems to foster.

On the top of the switch (inside the heater) there is a common connection.....even though it looks as if it is connected (electrically), it isn't electrically affected by the switch; it's just used as a post. It's just the place where the striped wire connects to the "common" point for the heater coils (they are in a parallel). Also, while you're in there you might want to put some electrical grease on the exposed conductors.....mine had quite a bit of corrosion (which was the reason for the failure). I had to replace 3 of the female connectors.

Similar problem here. But in my case, it was a blown fuse. There's an in-line fuse on the internal wiring of the heater. Take the control-side off (remove the bottom grey plastic bracket, then remove a sheet metal screw, then slide the whole assembly down off of the radiator). Where the elements go into the reservoir at the bottom of the radiator, the white wire should have an inline fuse connected to it. It will probably be covered with what looks like heat-shrink tubing. Snip, snip, and replace.

We have these heaters and haven't had a fuse fail yet. I think it's because after the first time I got that crackling sound after moving it while it was on, I stopped doing that, and only move it with the power off, and wait two minutes before restarting it, so the oil can resettle.
However, the thermostats are now failing. Anyone know if this part is available?
