SOURCE: Oil-filled heater smelling

yeah they do that, time for a good cleaning, if that fails, I'd replace with a ceramic heater... they are cheaper safer and cost less to operate.

Tip

Oil Filled Radiator Heater Leaking


<p>A very common and increasing popular source of <b>supplemental heat</b> in the last few years has been the <b>oil filled electric radiator. </b> <br /> <p>These <b>radiator heaters</b> are filled with an oil that circulates through the fins of the heater and is heated by <b>electric heating elements</b>. The result is a steady even type of heat that has a lower surface temperature then many <b>space heaters</b>, making them a great way to get <b>supplement heating</b> into a room when you have pets, small children or combustibles near by.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>One of the big questions that comes up with these <b>oil filled heaters</b> is what to do if they start to leak. The answer is that if the<b> oil heater</b> starts to leak then it is no good anymore and needs to be disposed of. These<b> heaters are filled with oil</b> at the factory and then are sealed tightly. Because of this there is no need to ever <b>refill the heater with oil</b> again. The heaters are sealed with the proper oil inside for the <b>best heating efficiency. </b> <br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>So what this means is that if you have one of these <b>oil filled radiator heaters, </b>you will never have any <b>maintenance</b> or worries about <b>adding oil to the heater</b>. But if there ever is a leak then the heater is also no good and will need to be throw out and replaced. Very few of these <b>oil filled heat units</b> ever leak, but as is always the case there are always some that do.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>A word of caution about heating efficiency. Always remember that when <b>heating with electricity</b>, the <b>laws of physics</b> always apply. <b>For every 1 KW of electric you will only ever get 3415 BTU's of heat.</b><br /> <p>There is no way to get any more or any less than that, so if anyone tries to tell you that their electric heater is more efficient then the next one they are not telling the truth.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p><br /> <br />

My radiator has a horrible smell,almost fish-like,what is the problem


It is most likely a very small leak. If there is no visible oil leakage, it may be a seam failing at the top of the unit. The fishy smell is the smell of the vapor of the oil the device uses to transfer heat to the fins. The unit may continue to work for a while, but the smell will get worse, and it may present a fire hazard. The cost of these devices is too low for repair to be worthwhile. Replace the unit as soon as possible.

Model 5700/7 Radiator heater won't work


May be safer to return the heater if it is new. You would not want to risk a short and/or electrical fire.

Smells like burn't plastic.


This is for the LFP6152E electric heater. I called tech support (800.642.HEAT), and explained the problem. I was told it was a diode that went bad, and they're sending me a repair kit. I guess I'll keep this number handy for the next few years.
