Installation was a snap as my generator was still hot from running. Peeled off the liner to expose the adhesive and stuck it squarely and securely on the underside of the oil pan. My review is only 4 stars because I haven't yet put the product to the test, but when that happens I will revisit and revise my review. Otherwise the heater arrived quickly and was as described.


Comments
The blockoil pan heater is used sporadically to heat the oil in our house generator when necessary. We are satisfied with the function of both products thus far. Thanks for reaching out.

So far so good. Bought 3 for our diesels. Be sure to clean the oil pan for any dust, grime or grease. We even lightly sanded the oil pan to ensure good adhesion then used high temp RTV silicone around the edges.


Comments
Absolutely zero problems. Continues to work great!!

Just received heater today.
Looks like
it should be perfect for the oil pan installation on my Kubota diesel UTV.
Hope to do a after season review next spring.

Working great. Diesel started every time!

Review from a similar Oil Pan Pad in Oil Pan Heater


I installed this on a DEF tank in my diesel to keep it from freezing when I’m parked overnight in sub zero temps. I ran the cord along the frame rail as far as it would reach then attached an extension cord and routed that to come out in the same area as my block heater plug. Be sure to clean the surface of whatever you’re attaching the pad to in order to get good adhesion.

Review from a similar Oil Pan Pad in Oil Pan Heater


Works awesome! This is the second one, the first burned out after two years. We use them on 4 wheelers in the winter, on timers for 2 hrs twice a day. Put on lower crank case to warm oil...starts much easier. This one still working well after 1 year.

Still working fine

Great Product! Volkswagen Jetta TDI makes no electrical heaters. There is NO frost plug on the engine either! Installed the KAT and life is good! Starts every time.
Roger in North Dakota.


Comments
The pan heater is going strong. The 2003 VW TDI does not offer any solutions to warming up the engine so I chose to do the pan heater over cutting into the cooling system. I would do it again!

Review from a similar Oil Pan Pad in Oil Pan Heater


I attached it to my air compressor to warm the oil before I start it when it's cold. Works well. I plug it in about 1 hour before using the compressor.



by:

Review from a similar Oil Pan Pad in Oil Pan Heater


I bought this pad heater for my air compressor that lives in the unheated side of my shop. I ruined two electric motors due to the oil in the compressor turning to molasses during the winter where it gets well below zero. So far so good. :)
The adhesive is solid, not peeling and the pad keeps my compressor nice and toasty. Before when I was away traveling I would forget to open the breaker for the compressor and come home to a ruined motor. That problem is history.
I highly recomend this heater, very small but very effective for oil pans of all types needing to be kept warm in freezing condition.

Thank you Kats !!!

This is the second Kats engine heater I have purchased and both are good quality and durable. This is also the second purchase I have made at eTrailer.com and I am totally satisfied with the cost, the no charge shipping, fast delivery and great follow up to make sure my order was correct and was delivered. I will definitely order from eTraler.com again should I need a component or a part.

Installed this heater on the transmission of my Ford Escape. Works perfectly. Now the truck will shift into gear in cold weather. (I know I need a new transmission but the truck is not worth it) but this heater has bought me an extra year out of my truck. Thanks etrailer.

Used it to keep oil warm on my GENERAC generator for easier starting during winter months but the electrical connections on the heater were so poor that they were arcing and sparking like July 4th fireworks!! So I ripped it off, too unsafe.

The product is what I ordered. I was
limited on smooth contact area to mount it. So, if functions as designed. I wish I could have installed a larger higher output unit for my application. Thanks for checking in. Have a great weekend.

Ask the Experts about this Kats Heaters Oil Pan Heater

  • Does Heating Pad Need to be Placed Directly on What it is Warming
    You can use the Kat's Heaters Oil or Transmission Pan Heating Pad - 4" x 5" # KH24100 and not stick it on the generator but doing that will greatly reduce, if not eliminate, its usefulness.

  • Oil Pan Heater Recommendation for 2016 Jeep Renegade
    While we don't have a frost plug style of heater confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Jeep Renegade with a 1.4 liter engine we do have a oil pan style heater that would work. You could use a heater like part # KH24100 which will attach directly to the oil pan and keep the oil at the bottom of the pan warm.

  • Which Kats Heater Do I Use for My 2016 Chevy Equinox 2.4L I-4 Engine
    I checked with Kat's Heaters and they determine which heater to use by the OEM parts that are available for your vehicle. The 2016 Chevy Equinox with the 2.4L I-4 engine did not use a plug heater like the # KH11811, but instead will use an oil pan heater to accomplish the same thing. You will want to use the Kat's Heaters Oil or Transmission Pan Heating Pad # KH24100, which is the correct heater for your vehicle and will work on oil or transmissions with no more than 7 quarts of fluid....

  • Block Heater Recommendation for a 2003 Dodge Sprinter
    To install the Kat's Heaters Custom Fit Engine Block Heater # KH11814 you will need to locate the cartridge hole on the block, which for a Chrysler it will be on the left or right rear of the block. You will need to clean the hole out and then apply silicone to the hole and the # KD11814 and then insert the heater. No coolant will need to be drained or lost. Once installed in the hole the heater will warm the block and surrounding coolant and oil. For a simpler install you could go with...

  • Will an Engine Oil Heater Help Me Start My Generator in the Cold
    I cannot say for certain but when the temperature that your generator is subjected to is cold, the oil inside the generator is also cold which means it is much thicker than at operating temperature. The thicker oil combined with your low oil shut-off is likely the reason as to why the generator will not fire up in the cold. I have done some additional research online and this seems to be the general consensus as well. The perfect way to combat this issue would indeed be to use the Kat's...

  • Recommended Heating Pad for 1 Liter Oil Pan
    The Kat's Heaters Oil or Transmission Pan Heating Pad - 4" x 5" - 120V - 100 Watts # KH24100 is rated for oil pans that are a little larger than what you have.
