Delonghi - Rapido Heater

We've got a fairly new model. It seems to have completely packed up. Tried the fuse (external). Has anyone got any suggestions? I wondered, for example, if there is an internal fuse I should check.
The heater is quite new and I can't think why it has packed up!

Many tks

Re: Delonghi - Rapido Heater

You'll need to take apart the heater. in back are some screws that you take out and the unit should split - front cover - back enclosure. separate the fan from the housing and blow out, brush out the junk that is blocking the heat path on the back of the heater element. then reassemble the heater. go to a hardware store and buy some poly filter media. cut a piece to fit the back of your heater and tape it in place. it'll trap airborne particles before the fan. then when it gets clogged, wash the filter and tape it back in place. its a heck of a lot easier to replace this media then having to take apart the heater again.

Check to see if the heating element has continuity or if it is even receiving power.

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.

Dragon wont turn on, have checked the fuse

We had the same problem. The on/off switch is likely to be broken inside. We tried to fix it but its likely the pcb is damaged. If you contact Delonghi direct they will help resolve. They sent us a new heater (10yr guarantee)!

Delonghi Solaris Heater Model No. TRN0812T NOT WORKING

In the past I have nothing but problems with DeLonghi heaters. I replaced them with Pelonis heaters and have had no problems since. Pelonis heaters are availible from Home Depot at a very reasonable price. This is based on my experience only. Hope it helps.

Noise coming from DeLonghi TRD0715T Oil Filled Heater

seems to me you have a bad bearing in the fan. if you can access the fan, have a few drops of oil poured on the shaft of the fan and see if it solves your prob.

Daily cost to operate

electric is billed at so many cents per kilowatt hour. a kilowatt hour is 1000 watts per hour. if your heater is rated at 3000 watts, running it for one hour will consume 3 kilowatts of energy at whatever your utility charges per kilowatt. if the amount on your bill is .026 per Kw it'll be 2.6 cents per hour.
