Why does heater run only if fan motor is started by hand and top replaced quickly?

1. When you open the top, do you see any dust/hair on the fan? remove dust with Q-tip. look closely at the motor. Usually there are small holes on each side of the bearing for oiling. or if not ,a broom straw can put a small drop of oil onto the motor shaft, each side. spin the blades a few times. start as you have been doing to work the oil in.Turn off, put back together. here is hoping What is your heater make and model?

What kind of oil does it use and where do you put it in?

Usually it is a mineral oil and it is supposed to be a sealed unit...there is no place to put in oil

I've got a reddy heater 125t I bought in 2002 and used it for a few months. I was in the military and deployed overseas and had it in storage until now. I've put more fuel in it, the ignite switch lights...

Is there a reset switch? Is there an in line fuse? If no to both we have some work to do here and hopefully in an hour have you up and running. Remove the top half of the heater, this exposes the burner tray and fan motor. Try spinning the fan motor by hand, should be free not bound up, use a light oil and oil front and back of fan motor at the bearings. Work the oil in by spinning the motor by hand and spin it until you feel that it is as free as it can spin. Now lets check all the other things I do yearly on mine.With the burner tray removed locate the fuel nozzle and remove it, they say you can not clean these. I say with a q-tip tooth pick and carb cleaner you can with out any damage, so clean it, now in behind the nozzle is a screen assembly these corrode clean it as well.Now put it back together and lets clean the flame sensor, locate it and now clean it with windex and soft terry cloth rag. Put the sensor back together and now reinstall the tray, make sure the sensor has a clear unobstructed view of the flame. At the back of the heater you will see the fuel pump and it has an air filter in it, remove it clean it and dry it real good put it back in. Inspect all fuel lines for holes, cracks, or dry rot. Follow the fuel line down to where it comes thru the tube, now remove the side cover and you will find the line and fuel filter. Remove the line from the filter and using a compressor blow air backwards thru the filter, instantly clean. Put everything back together and try firing it up, it should now work.

I have a Delonghi oil filled radiant heater.Oil has leaked out near the bottom on the side with the controls. Can I add oil back into the unit?

most oil filler radiator heaters are permanent oil filled, i do not think you can put back in the oil

I need a service manual for a Dayton oil fired 350,000 BTU heater.

I have a manual for a Dayton 3E218E. If you want a copy email me at and put "HEATER MANUAL" in the subject line. I can scan it in and email it back to you. This manual is for 2E510F, 2E511F, 3E218E and 3E219E. I also found a great web site for parts for all these models as well:

Honeywell oil heater HZ680

here is a REAL solution... as i just fixed this myself... what you need to do is take apart the heater... this is easy to do, all you need is a screwdriver for this part... on top there is a panel, this can be taken off with a butter knife if you dont have a screwdriver... anyways, underneath this panel are 2 screws, take those out, flip the heater upside down, and take out the other two screws... now the whole side panel will come off... after that, you pull all three plugs off the thermostat with the heater on the flat side opposite, next use a pinch pliers to remove the bolt that the the plugs were just attached to, the next part they tell you not to do, well i guess they tell you not to do any of this... lol... but yeah, put engine oil inside... it heats the same as the heater oil... put the plug back in, and use Liquid Nails clear sealant under the electrical stuff (do not put it on the metal part surrounding it as this will be come a fire hazard then) reconnect the plugs in the order you took them off from (white one is on the bottom) put the heater back together and you are golden! XD hope this helps!

Hwo to change oil filled heater thermostat

You would have to drain the oil, look on the side normaly under the cover you would vind a drain plug.
After you replaced the thermostat , you just need to put the oil back, remember to tilt it to the side,throw the oil slowly so you dont cause any air lock's. then put the plug back and your set.

Good luck..
