Question about Pelonis WM-HO202C Oil Filled Radiator Heater

1 Answer

Won't heat I just got a used Pelonis oil-filled heater from a friend.  I plugged it in and it heated fairly well for about 10 minutes, then cooled off.  The caution light is on, I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but I'm frustrated and cold.  Is there anything I can do to get it working?

    I don't have a volt meter. I understand electrics fairly well i.e., if you had a solution that involved taking it apart and looking at the innards, I could figure it out. There is a dial from low to high, but no temperature gauge. I've tried it on all settings. I've shut it off, turned it back on, tried it in 2 different outlets, shaken it, but I'm reluctant to take it apart since I really don't know what I'm doing.

    I plugged the unit in and turned it on. It smelled really bad, so I turned it off in fear that it would blow up. 10 min later, I tried it again. NO smell, but no heat either. The lights are on, so it's getting power. But, no heat.

Is there a thermostat? where are you from and do you understand electrics? do you have a volt meter?

burnt thermo fuse or element. be sure to connect any wires tightly if you replace thermo fuse. test it with a mulimeter should show less than 1 ohm. no you do not need to add oil, if the unit leaks throw it out.

I have a Pelonis oil-filled electric radiator heater that will not turn on even when plugged in to a good outlet. The switch seemed a little erratic but worked but when I bumped into it this morning i


Unplug it, then open it and inspect for a loose wiring connection. If that doesn't help, then jumper across the tip-over switch to see if the switch is bad.

I don't understand what the controls do pelonis oil filled radiator


I would try the thermostat one by turning it up to a higher heat. I feel the other one may heat on high but would not shut off. You would have to do it manually.

A friend gave me the Pelonis heater. It looks brand new, but I do not have the manual or no how to use it, other than just plugging it in. Is there anything I need to do to?


There are two knobs on it and two selector switches.

The switches you can switch on only one for half power and two for full power.

One knob is the most important the thermostat which set the maximum temperature to reach in the room and when it reached it switch off the heating elements. Adjust to most comfortable one for you, it is not in degrees scale but in number 1-9 but you can test it and decide.

Final the knob that has all these small teeth

Pelonis heater does not heat


Hi, Have you checked to make sure that there is power at the outlet you are plugged into? I have looked up some information on this heater and it is in the top 5 oil filled heaters. I do know this, they are maintainence free. They are sealed and no place to fill will oil as the oil is heated to a certain temperature and not enough to burn the oil, so they never have to be filled. Anyway, check for power, and if you have power, check the cord over for any damage. If you can't find anything, you have a internal problem with the control on this heater. This is something you may want to take in to a appliance repair store and have checked out. There is no fuse to replace, so I would say a problem in the circuitry. There is not much for me to walk you through other then what I have mentioned, that it is getting power and cord is good. Please keep me posted.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
