- Verified purchase
2 x units in undamaged cartons bought from Bunnings 23/05/2020.
Unit 1 run for about 12 hours across 2 days.
Early morning of 25/05/2020, 10yo daughter complains that the heater is spewing "smelly smoke stuff." Sure enough, hot oil has sprayed across the room, thankfully not burning kiddo, but the mess has required a professional carpet clean, left an oil stain on her mattress, and necessitated the purchase of new bed linen.
Close inspection of the unit shows some bending across the top fins, and some cracking of the powder coating between the columns. Suspect QC issue.
Unit 2 not run.
Good example of a sturdy oil heater.. Warranty??
Yeh look this is a great heater for the price! Heats the room well
But my problem here is, if I pay a little more, I can get the delonghi with 7 year warranty
I just wonder why only 12mths... $59. Or the delonghi $179. For 12mths warranty. Unfortunately for me the delonghi wasnt at bunnings when I purchased. There is nothing wrong with my arlec, but 12mths warranty versus 7yrs??
Questions & Answers
Our Arlec oil heater has stopped working and we are u sure why and whether it is possible to get it working again? It is still under warranty, under a year old. Not sure what to do?
