Hello I have a Delonghi KR031225 found that after turning it on and it heated up it began leaking on the bottom corner on the same panel that holds the controls? What could be wrong? Is it beyond repair?
Thanks
Mel

Unfortunately, the model number you listed does appear to be correct. However, if you can find the correct model number, you can possibly find the wheel assembly at the following link.

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.

My radiator leaks oil after turning it on for about 10 mins. It worked ok for about 20 days, how can I fix the problem?


These are sealed units and should never leak or need refilled. If the unit is only twenty days old I would suggest that you return it to the store you bought it from and try another one. Sorry this is probably not the answer you wanted to hear but it is just the way they are, a sealed unit.

I switch it on and with in ten mins its smokeing, whats the best way to get it fix it


Hey how's it goin'?

I had the same problem too.

There's a couple reasons the heater will do that, neither of them are good.

One reason is the heater has developed a leak and you can't fix that. The units are oil filled and if it was dropped or the dog chewed a hole in it ( I had a pretty mean dog ) then you can't seal it, it's time for it to go.

How the heater works;
Oil inside the unit heats up, expands and holds heat while you're getting warm. If the unit is leaking oil, you might even smell something like motor oil burning. That would be a gigantic tel-tale sign.

One other reason, and I had this problem too, is the wiring is getting tired and the wire jackets are getting too hot.

There's a couple reasons for that too, but unless you're a wiring expert or electrician, you're outta luck again.

Once the jackets of these heaters wiring starts to burn, there's no turning back. You need to replace all the wiring and terminals or solder new wiring inside. Special wiring, terminals the whole nine yards.

Rewiring one of these baby's is a job for an expert, even I might shy away from one. And I've been in the industry for 35 years.

The final question is this;
Is your dog's life worth saving $20 at a garage sale?
I know, I know, it can be a toss up.

But make sure and DO NOT USE A HEATER THAT SMOKES.

TURN IT OFF
UNPLUG IT
TAKE IT OUT OF SERVICE TILL REPAIRS ARE MADE
IF YOU WONT FIX IT, DISPOSE OF PROPERLY

Good luck.

Oil radiating heater won't heat


It could be many things, but the first thing to check is if the heating element is good. You'll have to (carefully) disassemble the unit.
Another thing that is possible, depending on the unit, is that the fuse is blown on the internal circuitry of the oil heater. A third possibility is that the thermostat is defective or has a short circuit.
If you are not comfortable monkeying around in the guts of the unit, call the company and ask what service options are available.

Delonghi 5 fin 700/800/1500w, oil filled heater.


It sounds like you have a lemon. The heat exchanger tube has developed a hole somewhere. These things are designed for the small element inside to heat up the oil, and that is supposed to radiate the heat. It would be dangerous to use without any kind of oil. The element would burn out hopefully before it started a fire, but not necessarily. I don't know what kind of oil they use, but its a thin viscosity, like some turbine oil. You can patch the hole and try some pump oil or something, but I personally don't think its a good idea. I wouldn't do it.

Leaking Oil from the front


DONT BUY A NEW ONE THEY ARE EXPENSIVE ... THEY PUT OUT VERY LITTLE ACTUAL BTU'S OF HEAT ...IT WOULD BE DANGEROUS TO TRY AND BRAZE ANY LEAK POINTS AND THE OIL IS NOT CAR OIL AND NEEDS TO BE FILLED TO FACTORY SPECIFIED LEVELS. (THESE ARE NOT MEANT TO BE RE-FILLED OR DOES THE OIL USUALLY DIASAPATE). OIL HEATERS OF THIS TYPE USE PLENTY OF ELECTRICITY. I SUGGEST A "HIGH QUALITY, THICK CASED, WITH TILT SAFTY, ELECTRIC SPACE HETER WITH A FAN. THEY HEAT PROBLEM AREAS SAFE AND EFFECTIVELY.
