It's only real drawback is that it takes a little while to make heat, otherwise it's a great heater. We've had ours for four years and it still works perfectly. I guess like anything, you can get lemons.
I'd buy another one tomorrow if this one dies.

[...] I have come into the office on a few cold mornings (@ 55 degrees F. inside) and turned on the Pelonis. Even at the highest setting of 1500 W it doesn't seem to put out quite enough heat to warm up this small space, so I will have to use it strictly as a supplement to the central heating. My old DeLonghi Solaris seems to put out much more heat, but that is a more elaborate and more expensive heater.

It was not used daily.It worked well for the bedroom.
I just walked in and almost slipped as all the oil leaked out.
It was not abused,dropped or hit.
I really liked it but it didn't last 7 months of intermittent
use.

      Bought this last night after 2 days without heat. Great design and lightweight but you would think they would put a handle on it so it can be carried upstairs while still warm. When the heat was restored I used the Pelonis heater to help restore the room temperature quicker. Took forever to get warm though and it only heated a small portion of the living room. It would be perfect for offices and small rooms.

        Comments about Pelonis® Oil-Fill Radiator Heater (HO-0221):

        I had this heater for 5 years, but this winter the "Off", "Low", "Medium", "High" switch would only work on "Off" or "High". Because of Farkus's review on 01/24/2014, I opened up the panel and indeed the tab was bent and the rotary dial was hanging out. After fixing the rotary dial, and pushing it back in the tab, it works again. Farkus saved me money, as I don't have to buy a new one. I hope this heater lasts another 5 years. Thank you Farkus. The four screws are located at: 2 on the bottom, one in the top front, and one holding the plastic top plate on.

            Worked fine last winter to add heat in my bedroom.
            It failed on the first cold day this year.
            I plugged it in and it started warming up
            but made sizzeling noise after about 15 minutes, then quit.
            I thought it had shutdown because of overheat so I turned
            it off and unplugged it for an houe but it never worked
            again.

                  I had a similar model that I bought three years ago. After two years, the temperature control switch failed. I opened it up and saw that the body of the switch had melted. You would think this would be a design consideration, and that it might be made out of something like Bakelite that wouldn't melt.

                  So, I hard-wired it to the highest setting. That got me another half year, before another part (I think the overheat sensor) gave out.

                  My Delonghi heater looks similar, and has similar specs, but has lasted over 10 years and is still going strong.

                  We own four of these heaters. Every one of them quit working for the same reason, but are easy to repair. The light would go on but no heat. The problem is the "Off" "Low" "Medium" "High" switch. It's a strange switch that is kept together with two metal tabs. On all of our heaters these tabs weren't clamped down tightly enough and the switch popped apart and quit making contact. You have to remove four screws to get to it, then you put it back together and clamp the tabs down tight. Haven't had any other problems with any of these heaters other than that wonky switch and they do a nice job heating a room. If I buy another new one, I'll open it up and clamp those tabs down right after I get it home. A better switch and I would give these five stars.

                  I just bought this product for about a month, and the power speed is messed up. There are different options on how high or low you want it. Well, when we turn the knob to off, the speed is on to III. When we turn the knob to III the heater turns off.. so it is basically the opposite. I don't know what happened. I just wasted money on it. It only worked for the first week, and then later on it doesn't heat the room anymore.

                    These heaters are awesome if you understand how they work. They do not blow out instant heat. It will take awhile to heat a room but once it does it maintains even heat. Its efficient because it heats the oil and then kicks off but the oil keeps the same temperature and when it begins to cool the heater kicks in and reheats the oil so it maintains an steady tempature. If I understand it correctly you don't ever replace the oil its sealed and contained. This one is very nice because it offers 3 different watts selection. Some houses cannot handle 1500 watts, I usually left it on 900 watts with no problems like lights flickering.

                    I have used these oil filled heaters for years now each winter and they save me a lot of money. I have one in each room. I keep the house heat on 60 (gas heat) and use these instead. I shut them off when going out. I have cut my heating bills in half. These heaters do not have a fan (unlike the fan heaters that suck electricity non stop) They heat up the oil, the oil radiates heat, the power goes off then when it gets down to a certain temp the power warms it up again. SO its not constantly running. I keep the livingroom one under a ceiling fan on low so it circulates the heat. Other rooms are smaller so the heater doesn't need a fan, but a very small fan on low will help circulate the heat. These are great!

                              I bought this to supplement the downstairs heat because my oil bill was bankrupting me. It brought consumption down fairly well. I have it running full blast. I have another Pelonis heater up in the MBR where the forced air heat doesn't get to so well & it keeps it toasty. I keep it on the 2nd of 3 settings. I can't use it on 3 as the house is old & both heaters are on the same breaker & it will trip. I use a fan to blow heat down the hall toward other rooms. If I close the door it get too warm (and I've covered up the register for the regular heat). MBR is ~16x14.

                                    I have a few of these heaters. My older ones have worked for years. My newest one, with very little wear and tear just stopped. Don't know what happened or what to do about it except put it out by the curb on garbage day.

                                        Landlord purchased two of these for either ends of the cottage. The central gas wall heater can not reach either end of the cottage, nor is the insulation any good in this almost 90 year old cottage. They were purchased to combat dampness.
                                        They have slightly taken the chill off the areas where they are located. You are not going to get toasty warm standing next to them. I think I will be using them instead of the gas wall heater... since I just got the bill for that. Yikes.

                                          I purchased the heater last winter and it worked great. I actually bragged about how much my electric bill decreased and that the heat pump was not working as much. Luckily, my husband happen to be lying on the sofa one evening and heard it snap and pop with flames shooting out of the controls. I would never leave this in a room unattended or on at night while sleeping.

                                              Heater has only one output: slightly less than 900 watts, regardless of the setting (low, medium or high). It is stuck on "medium", low isn't 600 watts and high isn't 1500 watts.

                                                  It's only real drawback is that it takes a little while to make heat, otherwise it's a great heater. We've had ours for four years and it still works perfectly. I guess like anything, you can get lemons.
                                                  I'd buy another one tomorrow if this one dies.

                                                    [...] I have come into the office on a few cold mornings (@ 55 degrees F. inside) and turned on the Pelonis. Even at the highest setting of 1500 W it doesn't seem to put out quite enough heat to warm up this small space, so I will have to use it strictly as a supplement to the central heating. My old DeLonghi Solaris seems to put out much more heat, but that is a more elaborate and more expensive heater.

                                                    I used this heater last winter with no problem. I started using it again this winter and after only 2 months, it started to leak. Fortunately, I purchased it on sale last winter and won't be out that much. I am definitely buying a different brand this time. My last oil filled heater worked for 8 years.

                                                      I just purchased it today, so it is early to give a rating. I will temporize with a 4. I bought it to heat an office of dimension 10 x 15. I turned it on low about 2 hrs ago and I turned the ceiling fan on low and set to push air down (counterclockwise rotation). The room, which was under 60 degrees and is well insulated, is now comfortable. I can touch the heater anywhere if the touch is brief (@ 1 sec), but there are points where a longer touch could burn. Fixing that would require either a more elaborate insulated, more expensive, radiator or a larger radiator. But I like the small size. This is a budget heater ([$] on sale at ACE), so I am OK with it. I hope it lasts longer than the 2 years Aroonie got. Perhaps it will at the low heat setting.

                                                      It's a wonderful product and I'm very disappointed it quit working after 2 winters. Shouldn't it last longer?
