Question about DeLonghi TRD0715T Oil Filled Radiator Heater

1 Answer

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

My son has had this heater for a few years but only recently used for an extended period of time. It was placed in his watertank holding area, so the water and pipes would not freeze. Was in use for four months. Went into check fluid on the ground, thought it was water, checked everything. It was not. The heater had lost its oil and was leaking on the floor. Question is would this cause a fire in the building. A smoke detector is in the area but cannot hear it in the log house. Has anyone else had problems with these oil filled types of heaters leaking. Can they be refilled or would you want to refill one that may cause a fire.

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.

Just stop working.. one year old


It should still be in warranty, even if it is slightly past the 12 month period a phone call to the supplier might bring a pleasant surprise. It really should have lasted longer

Inside the rradiator, dust?. Let's assume you meant in the colis and fins. If #2 is the case, spray it with a degreaser and hose it out.

I have an oil column heater about two years old, this year it is emitting an adour, is this normal , does the oil get old?


You need to give this heater a good clean with a mild detergent and cloth with it unplugged let it dry for a few hours then try it again. The oil is sealed inside inturn you can't smell this unless it's leaking.

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.
