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

    Thank you for trying to help but it seems a different kind of heater.

    Ours is not a fan heater though it is an oil filled radiator type. There are no screws anywhere and I can't see how it can have a fan unit. Im not sure we are talking about the same mode.

    my delonghi rapido blew up & fused my conservatory. it had been on for a couple of hours when a blue flash shorted out electrical circuit. we don't use the delonghi often but had sung its praises prior to this. it gives off a fantastic heat in a short perod of is portable but quiet heavy to move around.

    i bought it from argos november 2006 & also took out argos replacement product cover for 3years. has this product been recalled?

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.

What will keep heater fan from working( both fuses check good)?

The speeds are controlled by a resistor pack. Changing the resistor pack may restore full functionality. Volvo heater fans are notorious for squealing. Usually they are run at a speed that doesn't squeal. If it squeals at one speed, sometimes a different speed won't squeal. The resistors seem to eventually fail. They are fairly cheap to replace.

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.

Brand new delonghi PAC C120e, I got everything installed easily with the unit rite next to the window, I have it turned all the way down and it still does not cool my small room at night. It seems to blow...

Since the unit is new and under warranty and hopefully you have registered it with Delonghi. Your best bet, is to contact their Customer Support Rep 800-322-3848. Doing it this way has you totally covered.

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)!

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.
