Great until it stops working correctly...
We loved this heater so much we bought two for our sons rooms. Knowing it has digital temperature function helped knowing they wouldn’t get too hot and it would turn off at the temperature we selected. But sadly after three years one has stopped working correctly at all. Our son kept waking and through the baby monitor we could hear a very loud banging and clicking noise. I rang customer service and was told to take it to a repair centre which upon showing them they agreed the unit wasn’t working as it should and sounded like it was trying to c...onstantly click on or off. However after they spoke to a DeLonghi service manager, it was deemed a “normal” noise. They were embarrassed to call me and tell me they couldn’t do anything further even though the noise doesn’t sound right. It’s constant and extremely loud and never used to make this noise. I know these heaters can make some noise (our other one will make one click when it turns on or off) however for it to repetitively make a noise so loud it wakes us up from the baby monitor then it’s far too loud. Extremely disappointing customer service. It’s not a cheap product at $199.95. It’s not working as we bought it or how the other identical model works but to them... the noise is “normal”. Yeah right, thanks DeLonghi. I have lost all faith in your company and it’s products.

Good heater overall
Purchased this heater about 1.5 months ago.
Overall: Happy with the heating it provides. Would prefer analogue control rather than digital.
Heating: We bought it knowing that it won't be actively circulating heated air. More than enough to heat up a bedroom ~15sqm at 5.30am within about 15 minutes. It would take about 5 minutes to heat up a small bathroom with tiles. Our primary living room is larger (~35sqm) and has timber flooring and multiple windows with very poor insulation - so the heat seems to get lost very quickly. To be fair, this ...is not the fault of this heater. Digital control: Looks nice, but if I were to buy again I would buy one with analogue control. The timer is only capable of delayed start OR stop (eg. start in 2 hours or stop in 4 hours) - not both. Also, it is NOT capable of starting at a designated time on the 24hr clock. Additionally, this CANNOT be circumvented by using a smart-plug or an external timer at the power point, because the power button needs to be pressed manually after the "plugging in" in order for the heater to start working. In other words, it cannot be automated because merely plugging in to power does NOT start heating - someone MUST be there to press the ON button first. Robustness: The unit seems to cope with continued usage of ~12 hours at max output. So far, so good.

ALL THE WARMZ!!
I purchased this heater over a week ago from Harvey Norman. I was a bit hesitant because it's my first oil heater and due to all of the nasty smell review I read. I have the most sensitive nose so I thought I'd better plug it in on the deck outside. Within 12 hours I was able to use it. I tried it in the medium sized lounge room (4x7) and it made me nice and toasty within two hours! Over the moon with my purchase! Best heater I've ever!

Background heat only, not warm
Extremely disappointed with the heat emitted. If you stand very close to the heater, within one inch, YES it is warm. It does not effectively heat a room that is 20 square metres, it only provides background heat and for me, didn't feel like it took the chill off the room, DEFINITELY NOT WARM Enough. Bought from Harvey Norman for $199 who would not allow me to publish review on their website as it did not meet their guidelines. I ended up buying a $34 bar heater from Bunnings (3 heat settings: 750, 1500 and 2200). The 750 watts emitted from the cheap Arlec heater is proving to be far more effective than the Delonghi 2400 watt 'background' heater. Not worth the $199 spent. Don't waste your money.

Excellent room heater
Bought this heater a couple of weeks ago and it has been brilliant. Bought it to warm up a large bedroom and it has done the job only sitting on the medium heat setting. The thermostat was set once and hasn't needed to be readjusted again. Was considering buying the heater with the fan but it is definitely not required. Would not hesitate to recommend this heater

Very Useful Heater
Highly recommend this heater, we purchased this product for our sons nursery as we live in a very old house with no insulation so having the digital thermostat and timer function was a need.
The matte dark grey finish is very appealing compared to your tradition white heaters.
You have the function to set it on low or high function to ensure you get the full heat functionality in colder climates. The heater heats up very quickly, it is quite warm to touch so definitely keep it out of reach of children.
The buttons are quite loud when changing or turning on so not the best idea to change the heater settings while your child sleeps.
It is as energy efficient as a thermostat heater can be.

Great heater, keeps the room nice and warm
This is a great heater, it gets warm very quickly and can keep a room at a nice temperature at a lower setting. The 2400w really kicks in and makes the room really warm. However this comes with a bigger cost on the electricity bill and being 2400w is expensive to run - and not something you'd want on all day. Probably on a few hours in the evening at most.
It also has a nice 24hr timer which is handy.
It wouldn't be ideal for a huge open space, but does the job of keeping my main living area warm on cool nights.
The retractable/tuck in feet are really hand for storage. Although the machine itself is quiet heavy to lift and move.
Purchased in April 2019 at Myer for $135.00.
We bought this for our baby room 5 months ago. You need to use it at least 6 or 7 times in an open area, would be best to do it outside to get rid of the awful thick dusty smelling air. Only heats up small rooms.
Once finally in the baby room its makes really loud cracking sounds all night which wakes up the baby and us constantly. Randomly turns itself off. Its says its on, but you feel it and its cold and no heat is coming out of it.
Complete waste of money.
Perfect heater for bedroom
Heat up very fast in my master room, nice modern grey color with digital display. Eco mode and timer is also a good features. I am thinking getting another one for my other room :)
Also it’s come with 7 years warranty and the salesman couldn’t be bothered to sell me extend warranty. Lol
Sleak and working!
My previous Delonghi model had non-stop noise issue so I had to get a new one. This one looks so sleak and operates quietly, digital screen is a plus and thanks to temperature reading. Timer has to be set every time. I recommend this one and this pros will last long.

Powerful yet reliable heater
I was a bit sceptical about oil heater as some users suggested it could be slow to warm a room. Before deciding to go for one, I ensure it has enough power for my living room and the heater must be safe and reliable. After research, I went for DeLonghi for its wide range and longer warranty offered.
No regret at all after one whole winter. This oil heater would not overly dry the room so it's comfortable with it turned on even for longer duration. Power was sufficient for my living room as I have never needed to wait for the room to get warm e...
Was a litte more expensive then other similar units but is super quiet and doesnt make any crackling noises.. I do advise running it for an hour or so before first use as there is an oil smell first time using it but other then that it heats up very quickly and radiates heaps of heat
Very modern heater, quite attractive look and feel, very modern.
and I like the buttons and small screen, make it looks much smarter.
I bought it last winder, it can heater up a 20 square meter room. in about 30 mins.
But it does smells in the first few usage, after that it's fine
Great product, very good looking heater. and the digital panel is quite easy to use compare to the old model.
I bought it when the winter came this year, This heater can easily heater up a 20 square meter master room. in about 30 - 40 mins.
the cons is it's quite smell in the first few weeks. after about 2 weeks the smell are less and more acceptable.

Its a great heater... purchased from Myer. The heater heats up really fast and keeps the baby's room warm all night. Also, holds temperature of the room through cold nights very well. Very straight forward to use.
Only issue is... the smell when using 'maximum' - may need to be to be aired for longer than the manual recommends.
A quality heater. Issues with smell at first but seem to have gone after a month or so.
This is a good product which we have had no issues with apart from a strong metallic smell which lasted for 6 weeks or so. The brochure warns there will be a smell for the first few hours of operation but this lasted much longer. Anyway apart from this it has been a good heater. It heats a medium sized room. We largely leave it on over night on the low eco setting stop temp dropping too low. Apart from the smell it is a good unit.
Warms up my living area fast
Like: Warms up my massive house fast.save for kids to touch.it warms up my ensuit very quick .
I recommend people to buy this if they have a big house.happy with it and like it
dislike:its heavy to carry and hard to slide on carpet.I wish it had handles to move around
Bought a unit from the good guys on April.
Works pretty well and seems it warms up the small bedroom that we have pretty quickly.
The temperature setting let's me keep the room temperature to our desired temperature.
Wish it had been equipped with a remote control unit as well.

Excellent oil heater!
Love this heater! It works perfect in winter and since it is an oil heater, the heat last way longer than if we use a fan heater. Our room has a bathroom so it is quite a big space but this heater works well. One thing I love is because it has a timer so we can turn it on for 1-2 hour before we go to sleep and 1-2 hour before we wake up in the morning.
It also comes with 7 years warranty.
This is ok if u only need to heat a tiny room, If you used it in your bathroom it would not be to bad or maybe a small nursery but its not much good to me as I dai=nt have heaters going when I go to bed and by time it heats up its time to turn it off
Questions & Answers
Helllo, I'm looking at this product vs the DeLonghi dragon. Wondering if it has a room thermostat and if it turns off when hits the temp set. Also wondering if it can automatically switch between the high and low modes?
can you set the heater to come on at a specific time of day?
Hi, I've just explored the timer settings and it does not have a clock as such but it can be easily set to turn either on or off for many hours in 30 minute increments. Last night I turned it off at 10 pm and set it to come on in 7.5 hours. You can also set it to turn off at half hour increments. I'm not sure if it's possible to set both a turn off and turn on programme but I don't need that. What I want is for it to do a good morning warm up before the 7 am peak power rate cuts in and it does that quite well. I would highly recommend this heater. Due to the huge increase in gas prices, I'm hoping this will be my main heater this winter. I'm in a cool climate with mornings as low as -8 (Armidale NSW). I hope this info helps.
