Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have an oil filled radiator heater. We had it on for most of the day yesterday. The plug was in a power board. When i went to unplug it, i noticed the plug was very hot. i pulled it out of the power board and noticed that one of the metal prongs had burnt a hole in the powerboard. Is this heater safe to use?

Check the plug for damage, if it has lost metal or is burnt up, replace it with the best in the store, one of the big round ones. The power board was probably too light for the job, also get the best you can. Heaters draw a lot of electricity, use heavy duty cords to power them. It's better to plug it directly into the wall if you can.

Won't Turn On


My suggestion is that it is either the power control switch or failure of the heating element. Sudden failure can occur even in something brand new.

I have the bionaire oil heater boh2513g. I placed a towel over it to dry and I think it's went into overheating safety mode because the three lights are flashing but the appliance wont come on. Is there...


Turn the Master switch to OFF and plug the heater and leave unplugged for 30 minutes, That should give it time to reset itself. If it doesn't work after that, it's probably fried.

Will not turn on. Unit has been working great until tonight. Was on but now off and will not come on. Unpluged it for an hour but still not working.


This same thing happened to me, and yesterday as well no less. I've had mine for a 3-4 years. I think It had run out of oil, which is weird because I've had a Holmes heater for nearly 10 years and it still has plenty of oil left. If you shake it, can you hear the oil? I went and got another from Target last night (it was the coldest night of the year) and can hear the oil swishing around in it as I set it up. Hope it last longer than another 3-4 years or my next one will be a Holmes.
