I have had this particular unit for 2 years now. This winter (2010/2011) will be the third season I have used it.
Heats up very fast and provides a VERY warm and comfortable environment even on the worst of winter days. Completely fills the room with even, warm heat.
I love the adjustable power selection and thermostat controls.
The castor wheels provide wonderful a wonderful and easy way to move from room to room.
Safety is outstanding as there are NO exposed elements
Best 'radiator / oil filled' heating unit I have ever bought.
I purchased a ceramic heater before this and that was directional and hard to use in my 1900 home. After much research I decided to get this oil-filled heater. BEST PURCHASE EVER. My bedroom was on a regular basis 45 degrees in the winter and I would put this on a timer and have it shut off during the day. Would recommend placing a bowl of water in your room to ensure you don't over dry the room or yourself. I would suggest this, and have, to any friend.
This heater is beautiful and functional. Heats very quickly and holds temp well. And what a GREAT price!! Ships fast as lightning. I highly recommend.
This is the second honeywell I have purchased. They do a superb job heating larger areas than the specs show. The large room temp readout is lacking on a lot of high-end models and the controls are intuitive. I am considering getting another one to save on heating another area of my home. With the cost of propane due to soar (along with gas prices), these little gems are a god sent. If you need a heater of this type, IMO, you can't do better.
This is the 2nd Honeywell heater I have purchased from Kaz. I like this particular heater because of it's features and it is a good value for the money. These little heaters can and do heat a much larger space than they are rated at as long as your home is well insulated. The thermostat works on all three heat settings and it keeps the room I use it in very comfortable. Very pleased with this product.

I have a room that's always the coldest in the house. It faces north and has 3 large windows. Great light for the house plants but without this heater, they'd freeze!
The Honeywell HZ-709 does a GREAT job of heating and maintaining the warmth in this room. (It's winter and I have 2 orchids about to bloom, miniature rose trees that are full of blooms, and very healthy foliage plants.) I also use this room as my office and I used to freeze in here.
All of this is due to the heat provided by the Honeywell heater. I can turn my central heating much lower than before and it has turned on a lot less than before I bought the Honeywell heater.
This was a very good purchase.
Pros: Consistent warmth, save money, great comfort, makes almost no audible noise
Cons: Kicking myself for not buying the heater sooner
Our Honeywell HZ 709 oil heating unit is brand new today, so we are just starting to use it. We do have an older Honeywell oil heating unit too that is still working well after many years. We have about 3,000 square foot of living space in our home and with the high cost of heating now days, we will supplement heating the home with both of the Honeywell oil units.
This is in addition to another Honeywell Electric Radiator Heater. Just what the Dr. ordered. Works great!!
A great heater, and very reliable when heating my livingroom and dineing room area. It is very cold and I am very satified with this heater and its performance.
We never bought a space heater before but this one is amazing. It is able to warm up an entire upstairs in only a few minutes and its easy to use an safe as well.
Easy to setup for use. Providing nice heat for a small room. Very quiet and easy to use.
I live in frigid Colorado, and this unit heats my bedroom perfectly. The digital thermostat keeps it +/- 3 degrees. The handle on the front makes it easy to move while still hot if need be. This unit makes almost no noise, and has never disturbed my sleep. I love the idea of no moving parts, and I anticipate this product will last me at least a decade.
The auto shut-off for the temputure is great. A peace of mind when your away from home and worrie about your heater being to high.
Very user friendly, easy to use. Attractive style I like that you can set temperature by one degree at a time. Three settings from low, med, to high, makes the room warm and safe to use.
I love this radiartor heater. It's very easy to setup and use. The thermostat is accurate.
Bought Unit for Large Master Bedroom. Heats up nicely and is very quiet. No Paint Burnoff odors as reported with other brands.
I had a number of heaters but none of them performed as well as this one. The settings allow me to set the time and temp. No noise with unit.
just got it, easy to put together,instructions easy,so far so good. it is heating nicely at this point.
Very well engineered and thought-out
A seemingly well built
Good Website info
Quiett, heats up whole bathroom, energy efficient; much better than heaters with fans.
I had purchaised other oil heaters they burned out after a few uses, and they were an eye sore, they did not look as nice. The black exterior and lighted digital dials make this item's appearance apealing and very nice to look at. As soon as I plugged the heater in and turned it on it began to work. I like it alot, looking forward to using it for at least a few years.
Bought it for our bedroom. The digital programming it has is a nice feature. It's silent operation is another thing we like. It keeps the room comfortably warm, getting up and getting ready is more pleasant now!
the product works well .easy to put together, easy to set up, and provides a impressive appearance
Heater works perfect for where we need it. Heats up fast and makes no noise at all. Very pleased with our purchase.
We love this heater. It is energy efficient and warms our room very well. We have bought two of them. One has lasted several years. The other lasted less than a year but was replaced as it was still under warranty. Great product, great company.
Purchased one of these last year and it served my purpose very well. This is now a second heater. A small fan on the floor behind it distributes the heat and improves efficiency.
real happy with the oper, but now i need to repair it after diag. seams like the control board is inop.think you so much.
Love these heaters. This is my second one. So easy to use and affordable. I have heard that the plug in sometimes gets hot. Easily avoided by running the heater on medium and setting it for 4 or 5 hours at a time, turn off when out of the home.
I appreciate how quickly I rec'd this product. Thank You
Still working with this unit but I have high expectations & so far I am very satisfied. If there is a way to follow-up I would be happy to let you know of the outcome of my experience.
Well, four weeks in and this heater is leaking oil....It worked great for a while, never been moved, knocked over or abused in any way - it just started making puddles on the floor (glad it's in a room with vinyl flooring). I'm not too concerned because Honywell has always been great about replacing their defective products. So, will not complain except for the bad luck!
Very good product. I have a wide downstairs area that isn't heated much by my air system. This heater warms up fast and covers the whole space. So pleased with this product!
I use my 709-710 to heat a sun room and this heater surprised me in its ability to handle this 16 x 16 foot square room with wall to wall insulated windows. My old gas fired floor furnace provided 35,000 btu (input) when it died this fall after 30 plus years and I cannot find repair parts for it. I plugged up this heater and set it to max settings, but found it made the room too warm! (I have not tested it yet in reall cold weather, but believe it will keep the room warm enough overnight to protect my house plants).
My only complaint is that the timer function can only be set for continuous use by turning the power off and the back on, re-setting the heat and temperature controls (don't touch the center timer control if you want continuous use!).
A big improvement would be to provide a continuous run setting on the center timer control after the 18 hour setting.
Since natural gas is priced higher and electricity is lower in the winter here, it will be interesting to see if switching to electerial heat will be less expensive. Stay tuned!
I have had this heater for two years, for my sun room which is about 10X12. And it keeps it warm at 69 degrees all winter, and is easy to progrm.
I just purchased the heater, but upon its first use, I'm really impressed. There's very little setup involved, it's very quiet and easy to use. The automatic shut off and timer function make for a really functional item. You do need to be careful to keep your toddlers away, because this type of heater is not cool to the touch.
My 3 issues are the wheels are too cheap they break too easy and not option to change the default settings when is turn on is on High and 70 Degrees I will prefer Low and 68 Degrees last it gets pretty hot hotter than the conventional oil heaters.
I like the digital settings and that shutdowns by itself and that works pretty well too.
The Honeywell HZ-709 heater seems to work well. I would recommend it as being so far as a good product.
Easy to put together, control panel is easy to operate. Need to wait for the cold weather to set-in before we'll know just how good it does but so far not disappointed.
After trying a few other heaters to warm up an unheated breezeway, I tried this radiator style heater and it solved the problem. A comfortably warm room, without hearing a fan clicking on and off and only getting heat in a few areas of the room. It holds a constant temp, is silent and seems to be easy on electricity. I would recommened it to a friend.
My heater broke late in the p.m. & my son ran to get a unit a Target. Only two of these units left so he grabbed one. All we had to do was put the legs on the bottom and we were ready to go! Instructions are very easy and the heater works well. Only thing I don't like is I find the cord too short and the unit is not to be used with an extension cord so you can't get the maximum use by moving the unit away from the walls.
To early to tell if will do the necessary heating. If it works as well as some of the others we have used it will be fine.
I was amaze how precise assemble and operating instruction was, also ease of operation. However there is no information about the Tip-Over Switch except it is mention on the box
I HAVE HAD IT FOR A FEW DAYS AND AM IMPRESSED. I CALLED THE BEDROOM WE SLEEP IN A MEAT LOCKER BECAUSE OF THE COLD. THIS HAS SOLVED OUR PROBLEM WITHOUT NOISE AND DANGER OF FIRE.
This is a very sleek unit and easy to move around with the nice handle in the front. It takes a little white to heat up, but once it is hot it keeps the room warm. The only things I would add would be a little longer cord and a fan would be nice. Good unit for the money. The timer is a nice option.
I have never used one of this type of Heater system needed on and I decided to try it, so
far it seems to be ok.

I owned and used the Model HZ-709 oil filled electric heat for 7 years. Just recently the heater's on and off switch seems to have stuck to the on position. The heater operated with an auto on and of thermostat feature which seems to have failed, and heater does not shut off when desired temperature is reached.
I like it. It heats the area I wanted heated. I just got it a few hours ago and it is heating up the dining, living room area that seems to stay cool. I shall see how it works when it gets below zero here in the northland.
The Honeywell HZ-709 space heater was purchased for my daughter's room. She uses it almost daily during the cold months. It has made her a much happier person in the mornings being able to wake up nice and warm!
The product is great, it will be exellent if it has internal clock and on/of programable time.
Initial reaction is that it is a good heater. Does not take up much space. Heats up quickly. The various features such as automatic shut-off timer and temperature setting based on degrees are very convenient. Digital display shows the curent room temp as will as what temp the thermostat is set to in addition to Low, Medium or High setting. Welcome improvements to a tried and true heater style.
I have had many different oil-filled radiator heaters over the past few years to help keep the bathroom warm in winter. This heater not only looks great in black it cranks the heat out. I love that it keeps the room at an overall average temperature, whereas with the other heaters you needed to either turn them down, off, or open the door wide. My grandson can play in his bath longer, and more comfortably than ever before.
I absolutely love this heater - we have used it a couple of times for camping, as well as in the home - it is a great product. The multiple power settings and timer control are a fantastic feature that has made this unit fit into our lifestyle perfectly.
I accidentally knocked the heater over and now it will not turn on. I'm afraid I have broken it, is there any thing I can do to correct the problem? Thanks, Paula
Very good functionig heater, I especially like the precise temp controls, I wish my 717 had the same temp setting selections.
It seemed to work very good at first..... but.... I set temp at 70* and next thing I know it's says the temp is 77* ..... and now all the numbers do is flash back and forth between 68 & 69.... At 1st thought it was adjusting to room temp but it never stopped!
This heater worked really well, but fell over easily when bumped. We only had it for about 3 months before it stopped working, which was very dissapointing.
I have bought these heater before and never had a problem with them. Until this year. I bought one to replace the other one and paid 3x the price as before and got it home and loved it. It ran exactly 7 weeks and then just quit. I tried different plugs just in case it was the plug ins. But no. I reset it like it said in the paper work. Again no. I will never buy another from them again.
I bought this heater last winter to use in my one room apt. and it was great! I was very happy with it and would recommend it, but the castor wheels roll terribly wanting to jam up every few inches. The result was the heater fell over on it's face plate while moving it and broke all the buttons. New winter....new heater but will spend less.
We just started using the heater today. We do not know how well it works yet.
purchased 2 of these heaters, one works great and one is leaking it's oil out all over.
I feel that this is the best heater that is manufactures today. I recently purchased the Model HZ-709 as a replacement for the same model I purchased 3 years ago. Unfortunately, the one this replaced started leaking oil onto the carpet. I'm hoping this one does not do the same thing. This is the only thing I have found wrong with the old one. Were it not for the oil leak, I would still be using it today and I would have given this product 5 Stars.
I HAVE USED ONE OF THESE HEATERS FOR 3 YEARS AND IT WAS FAITHFUL FOR THE FIRST 2 YEARS AND THE THIRD YEAR I WAS NEVER SURE IF IT WAS HOLDING THE CORRECT TEMPEERATURE.
I HAVE ANOTHER ONE THAT I HAVE BEEN USING IN THE WINTER FOR ALMOST 10 YEARS. AND IT IS STILL FAITHFUL. IT IS THE SAME BRND BUT AN OLDER MODEL.
We bought two. one got tipped and will not work anymore.
This heater was good for about a month. I've been using it to keep my room warm at night and setting it to automatically shut off in the morning. However, three times now I have had it on, shut it off to roll to another room and it wouldn't come back on. I would wait an hour or so and it still wouldn't come back on. It took the next day for it to work again. Now, it won't come back on at all. Even though it kept my room at a nice temp, it has become unreliable.
Good little heater that seems quite safe around the house.
But quit working after a year of use.
this was a gift and when opened it was missing the wheels and the remote as well as the Owners Manuel. But other then that it works so far.
Hi, my heater fell down, and i i try to turn it on and it didn't came on, i was wondering if i still have warranty for it? i don't think i fill out the little form, there is a number on the bottom 3173839, thanks.
Warms up room nicely but goes over the preset tempature so I have to turn it off when room gets too hot. Wish it came in white.
Purchased 2/10 used only 2 months. Started to reuse..... As I stated slight hard nudge in the dark..... heater did not even tip...... just rolled on wheels about 6 inches from previous position. Tried to troubleshoot as suggested to no avail. Only option ship at my expense plus pay Kaz 10.00 for handling to get it replaced. So in less than a year a 65.00 heater increases in cost for me to almost 100.00.
It would have been less cost and easier to just have installed a external reset switch.
As for heating a large room.... there is no way at best it might heat a small room about 5 x 7 room with no window
We bought this for our small kitchen area last year and it worked fine until we put it up after winter. I took it out this year 11-03-2010 and it wont heat at all. It doesnt warm up even! I cant believe this until cost me almost $80 dollars and I was only able to use it for 6 months before it quit!
Heater works quite well. But the electronic interface in the front of the panel has stopped functioning. The numbers do no display correctly and the controls do not respond either. The power button fails to switch off the unit so we have to continuously unplug from the wall in order to stop the unit. We would like to replace the unit but have lost our receipt from Home Depot. Please advise what can be done.
We bought our heater on 12-26-11. It was sitting in our hallway and one day my husband forgot it was there and knocked it over. I just figured that the safety tip over shut of switch had been tripped. So we unplugged it like the manual says, plugged it back in and it still won't come on..
The balance of this unit is extremely poor. I understand it's a heater and not meant to be bumped into, but when there are dogs in the house, things happen. My issue is that this unti's balance is so poor it can fall over in any direction with very little, to no pressure. Case in point, the day this unit died on me, I caught the toe of my shoe on the cord and I am still uncertain how it didn't just come unplugged, and after a fall with a mild thud, never worked again. Still trying to find the reciept to take it back to Wal-Mart but I may have to eat this one, at one year old and very hard, I don't think it will taste good. By the by, there is a note on the unit that claims automatic shutoff when the unit is tipped which is supposed to prevent damage... guess that missed the mark, it should say, "May fall a few times and still work, but probably not." Honestly, other than the balance issue it was a solidly mediocre heater and I would highly recommend it over frost bite.
my unit was along a wall and flat with that wall, but as i passed by with a package i tipped the unit over on its face dials and controls, on a carpeted floor no less, and the unit is toast. the front curicit board with the push switches was bent and cracked in two lines almost 3 pieces, and the one leading edge was along the end of a chip wich makes repair of the board almost impossible, without taking that chip off and then three of the switches seem not funtioning,, how can i get another board for this machine and or faceplate with the attached boards etc. this unit is just 2 years old and the winter is commin real soon. got it a walmart.
unit worked great except for the tipover which i feel wasnt that extreem, need to put a stiffener in that part so the boards wont be destroyed if it happens to them...
Unit was used just 2 mild southern seasons and just quit. Unplugged it in the spring and stored it in a closet over the summer months. Plugged it in 11-5-10 and nothing happens. Avoid this product.
Wish I had checked these reviews before purchase! My unit died the very first time it accidentally tipped over. It wasn't on and the fall was inconsequential, but apparently any tip over kills this unit's electronics. Absolutely worthless! And since I can't find the receipt, it was a very expensive accident!
I purchased this unit from walmart in september and barely used it. Today is December 1st and after the first snow of the season I came home to find the unit completely dead. It will not turn on. The company must have cut back on the quality of their products because for $70.00 I had hoped the heater would have worked for longer than 2 months.
I got 1 year out of it.Now it shuts off after a few minutes for no reason.To have it service ,I need to pay a service fee of $10 dollars plus shipping ,which is probably over $30.The warranty is a joke and so is its reliability.
Worst excuse for a heater I have ever had. If it had a fan to disperse the heat it would do well. However, you need to practically sit on top of it to get the heat. Very poor product. I rated it 1 star, because I could not find a negative rating.
Right out of box, this heater would not work! Got as a gift 4 months ago and just opened and tried to use it but nothing. Am going to try to return.
I bought this heater last year and was very happy with it. I doesn't blow the heat but gently heats the surrounding air. This year when I plugged it in it just stopped working. I have tried plugging it in different outlets and everything else I can think of. I have been looking for a reset and can't find it. I don't have animals or children so no one has been touching or bumping it. I just can't figure out what caused it to stop working. I miss it and hate to buy another since I don't know what caused it to stop in the first place. Hope others have better luck.
This was a good heater when it worked. Winter has just started and one day I pushed the on button and heard a little pop. Heater now doesn't turn on, this heater is less than a year old now and shouldn't have this problem. I will buy only an old fashion analog switch heater from now on.
Just bought this heater last night for my basement; plug it in this morning and it doesn't work. Digital display is reading an 88, which must be an error code.(basement is definatley not 88 degrees). None of the control, including the on/off button are responding. I dont know if this will be an easy fix, havent gotten that far, only got on-line to look up troubleshooting tips and this is where I ended up. Can't believe Im troubleshooting right out of the box!!!!!
We have had this heater for less than a year and only used it occasionally and it no longer works. When we plug the unit in there is no response from the power switch at all. We let it sit for 20 min plus as suggested in a troubleshooting recommendation and it still does not work. The breaker was not tripped. We would like a full refund or a replacement heater. We are very dissappointed with this product.
Please help to rectify the situation and keep us as a valued customer.
I was using my heater the today and noticed a odd wire burning smell. I took a flash light and shined behind the control panel, looking through the small groves and saw a wire that was melting. I unpluged the unit and need to have it replaced under warranty. I cannot find my purchase reciept from Walmart
I got this last year and it worked great, but when I brought it out this winter the temperature setting doesn't work. It goes WAY past the setting. And if you put it on high setting, the plug gets really hot. Dissapointed in this product.
I bought this heater about a year ago. It has provided a great deal of heat to a bedroom and I have enjoyed it until now. One day it just wouldn't turn on. Kaz offered to replace it because it's under warranty but the shipping is almost as much as a new one. I'm bummed!
This heater is less than 2 years old and has stopped working. It's not worth the trouble of packaging and shipping for repair. This is the second product we purchased with the name honeywell. The last one only lasted 4 months. We will never own another product with honeywell on it. Lesson learned.
