Honeywell HZ-690 7 Fin Oil Filled Radiator Heater

I'm looking for a good oil filled radiator that is reliable and will last. I have 2 Honeywell HZ-690's (above link) but they aren't made anymore. They still work fine but I want an additional heater. Previously I had 2 Honeywell HZ-709's but the motherboards went bad and Honeywell (Kaz) sent me the 690's when I complained that the 709's were unreliable.

I have read reviews of the Delonghi heaters which also indicate unreliability and their 1-year warranty seems to imply little company confidence in their own product.

Does anyone know of a good, reliable (preferably mechanical -- not computer controlled) oil filled heater. I don't want bells & whistles that will break (e.g., digital thermostat control, timer etc.). Just old fashioned heat & reliability.

Thanks!

Years ago I bought a Delonghi heater for my small church office and it would not keep it warm at all

i like the lakewood oilfilled baseboard heater.. not sure if they make them anymore. they do a nice job in a bedroom. a lil dial thermostat you can set midway on low heat. i bought 5 of them at one time. i've been using 3 of them for 5 years.. no problem. i have 2 for back ups still in the box. nice and quiet.

We have 2 Delonghi oil filled heaters for 2 bedrooms and they have been reliable and worked well for last 15 years, and as atttested by their high ratings @Amazon. The bedroom size is we use is 12 x 15. Thermostat works well and I have to set on very low to keep room warm or it gets warm even when its below freezing outside and our central unit's thermostat is set at 62F. Consumer Report also rates them high!

So please tell us, what kind of electric heater kept the church office warm when the Delonghi did not?

Sorry never saw your post. Don't see a model No. on it but it says Type: 2507 1500 watts, Made in Italy.

Any gas filled Delonghi models will work great since we have acquired different units over differnt times and they all are simple devices that keep working.
