  • Works! Quiet, efficient heat.

    Nov 18, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's silent. Did not smell when first purchased. Saves me money on my heating bill.
    Cons: Once in a while I notice a faint "oily" smell. One of the wheels broke.

    Summary: I purchased one of these at Rona 3-4 years ago, and it's been one of the best heaters I've ever owned.Yes, it takes much longer to heat up than the other heating technologies out there. However, once it does heat up, it can maintain that ... read more

  • Not so hot...

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price
    Cons: Performance, Construction, Controls

    Summary: I was pretty surprised that no one has reviewed this oil-filled heater. With gas prices still high, I figured these were in high demand. After picking this one up from Target for 39 bucks, I was anxious to see it perform. I already have a Delonghi ... read more

    Pros: Great fire hazard for your home.
    Cons: Always develops LEAKS ! Cheap construction, noisy thermostat, etc.

    Summary: I bought two HZ-690 from a store, and one from another store — total of three (3). All these three units started leaking oil, between 6 and 18 months of use !!! I have been lucky that I noticed it every time, but it did ruin one floor (warranty ... read more

    Pros: Turn down the heat. Heats a 15x22' bedrom from 60 to 68 no problem. Silent.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: I've had this for 2 years. Got it at Target for 75% off at the end of the season, about $10. Got another one of a different brand for about $8 at the same time. Both still work ... read more

  • Crapiest Heater

    Pros: None
    Cons: Hot to touch, controls melt after two years, too tipsy

    Summary: I have had this heater for about two years the thing just melted one of the control knobs and was very hot to touch. An oil filled heater shouldn't be this hot to touch. Don't buy it. Its ... read more

  • MORE CHINA JUNK DO NOT BUY

    Pros: There are none for this heater
    Cons: Very dangerous, cheap China JUNK

    Summary: I have owned several electric heaters and 4 oil filled ones. This Honeywell hz-690 is a piece of junk, and dangerous. Within 90 days it started leaking oil, not much but enough to ruin the carpet. Took it back for replacement and the second one went up ... read more

  • Smells diesel after one week of use

    Rated Show
    Pros: Good heating.
    Cons: Smells diesel or oil.

    Summary: It was OK for the first week, than it started to smell like old bulldozer - smell of diesel. Heating was sufficient for a bedroom. Also, it was pretty heavy, 10-15 kg, what means lots of oil inside. But smell, smell is bad. I brought it back to ... read more

  • It smells even after 4 days

    Nov 20, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Has pretty long power cord.
    Cons: Heats slow and no way to know the temperature setting.

    Summary: It smells even after 4 days and having it cranked up to maximum for hours thinking there are residues from manufacturing but the smell does not go away. I hope what we smell is not harmful since it was intended for my 6 months old baby room to raise the ... read more
