Goldair oil column Heater

Hi, I have a Goldair oil column heater which is a few years old, it has 13 columns and two power switches and a rotating dial.
The heater was covered with a towel right where it shouldn't. It has a sticker saying not to cover, it has probably overheated and damaged something. Could it be just a fuse or a small part that I can replace or will it have caused major damage?

Regards

    Thanks for the reply. I thought that might be the case. I will pull it apart today and see if I can see anything and repost if I get stuck.

    Cheers

    I now have it apart it seems very basic but I can't see any damage. The cable comes in, the positive and neutral go to a choc block and the earth to a seperate metal frame. From the frame the earth goes to the base of the heater, neutral goes to the power switches (named I & II for full power or half power)and another wire to the base of the heater. Positive goes to the dial then to the switches. A Black and white wire come from the middle of the switches to the base of the heater. The base of the heater compises of a large hexagonal fitting with four wire inputs including the earth wire.
    Could the fuse-able link be a part of this setup?
    If you can shed any light on what could have failed for me I would be very greatful.
    Regards

    if you are able to get your hands on a multi meter or a contanuity tester. all you need to do is go acrossed the switches and limits to see if you have contanuity. or you can jump out one at a time with a wire. not recommended to leave jumped out if you get it working recommend replacing the part. any my questions just ask

Internal 1/2 psi propane regulator is not passing gas thru so that heater wont light. Are there recalls? Where can I buy a replacement part? Heater is 2 years old, never lit.


What's the pressure to the heater? It should be a minimum of 11 to 13 water column inches. Also, make sure that your heater is in fact a propane fueled heater. Don't go by whats on the box it came in. Look at the manufacturer's tag(s) on the heater. It may be a Natural Gas unit instead of Propane unit. I've seen this happen before. In which case it won't work and can not be converted.

Heater Core REMOVAL & INSTALLATION NOTE: Be sure to consult the laws in your area before beginning any procedure which requires servicing the air conditioning system. In some states, it is illegal to perform repairs involving refrigerant unless the work is done by a certified technician. CAUTION
When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old. NOTE: When removing the instrument panel, it may be beneficial to have a friend or assistant help you. Without Air Conditioning

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.

Heater core


18901fc.gifHere is an exploded view of the heating/air conditioning blower box. This contraption is located on the passengerside under the dash. I've changed heater cores on other cars but never worked on a caravan so not sure how difficult it'll be. You may need to remove a few cover panels to access this and the heater core #22 is located behind the distribution box #6 containing parts 7-18 and hopefully comes off as a unit. I wouldn't want to put it back together just looking at the pic. You may just need to remove the heater tube cover #4 to access the connections and slide out the core.....NAH couldn't be that simple!!! Hope this was of some help. Good luck.

Efficency with Oil Column heating


because it operates on room air temperature, if this is the only means of heat to this room, leaving it on would be more economical thus keeping the rise in air temp time less=less time it works hard to match what you desire. but if not only source of heat no. time to heat room would be almost the same thus you would save what you used during the day due to fluctuations in room temps between time your furnace would kick on and off.
