Hello, these type of heaters do not run out of oil, unless they have a leak ... in that case there will be good sized spot of oil under it.

.

These things tend to have fairly short life spans, if its over 5 years old its not worth the high cost of repair, you can buy a new heater, with the same BTU rating, ceramic type is best, ***** ***** $60 if you shop around.

Good luck with the ankle

.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
