Re: Not heating

Sounds like either the thermostat or the element. If you hear a clicking when you rotate the thermostat you can assume that it is working. My advise is to replacethe heater. The element is sealed inside the oil chamber and the thermostat will cost almost as much as a new heater, sorry.

How do I get this oil rad to stay on permanent? It goes off after it gets hot then doesn't come back on for a long time.

oil filled radiators have a thermostat that shuts unit off when its satisfied. just like any thermostat. I have used these heaters alot as temp overnight heat for customers with boiler/furnace problems till I could get parts in am. They always work well for me. I assume you have adjustments all the way up, what is the room temp when it shuts off and how much drop is there before it comes back on? You could have a faulty 'stat but I doubt it would be cost efficiant to replace considering the price off these heaters.

Does not heat up. Is there a way of opening the radiator?

Oil heaters produce no fumes or flames and feature whisper-quiet operation. Because the oil within the heater never needs to be replaced, oil-filled heaters are maintenance-free. In addition, these types of heaters are compact and portable - allowing you to carry them from room to room. Many also feature carrying handles or a set of casters for easy mobility
some of these types of heaters have a hole with a plug, that allow you to add oil, but few of these are in use today. so this being said it is most likely the heating element is failing to fully heat up the oil. parts may be found, if researched in detail on the net

also be known that the electrical componets are most likely to fail befor the oil evaporates. so look at all overheating controls and so on.

good luck,

I have a Patton Heater ( Brand New ) that was given to me. when I plug the heater in it lights up but the heater or fan does not come on. This heater has never been used. What could be causeing this?

Try spraying a LITTLE WD-40 on the fan bearings, with the heater unplugged, of course. You may have to remove the case to get access. Before you spray, try to spin the fan with your finger. Spray then try again with the finger. I think this will do it. If you don't have WD-40 ... try sewing machine or other light house hold oil.

Thanks for visiting today.

take a hole punch and knock a hole in each end, one on the top, one on the bottom and drain the oil into a 2 litre plastic bottle. Now you can recycle both!
