I used this through a winter in the north where it regularly is at subzero temperatures. Truck always started without any issues. I also had heat pads on the oil pan and transmission that I bought from etrailer. At -40+ degrees the truck always started relatively easy.

Website was easy to use and shipping was quick!

Works great

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.

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!



by:

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

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.



by:

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.



by:

Needed this heater to keep the hydraulic oil reservoir in my bucket truck above freezing temperatures. Did a great job.



by:

As far as the product is concerned I am sure it will work as advertised they have a great reputation the service however was awesome Stacey was great there was a glitch and she was on it quick and clean very polite and she did it all with out sending me 25 emails or calling me 10 times a true professional thanks I will be back when the need arises..............

I put this heater on my RV water heater to prevent it from freezing. So far it works well.



by:

Article conforme a la description.



by:

Works as advertised



by:

Was disappointed. Their product description along with the installation instructions both refer to "self adhesive" but there is none. Called manufacture and they suggested High temp silicone RTV. Do to the location of installation this was difficult to do the clamping. Added 4 days for 2 people to the process to install.



by:

We use it on the oil pan of our sprinter fleet. We run in subzero temps a couple times a year and this works great for us when our fleet has to sit outside overnight. Great product just make sure to research the size you need for your application.



by:

Quality. I hope it works as well as it looks! Will install soon.



by:

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.



by:

I own and operate a tree service in MI, needless to say the winter months are hard on our equipment. I had searched for quit some time before I found this product, it was a very easy installation and makes a world of difference, I would highly recommend this to anyone who works in the cold weather. Thank you Kats !!!



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

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.

  • Can Kat's Heaters Oil or Transmission Pan Heating Pad # KH24150 Be Left On Overnight
    Yes, The Can Kat's Heaters Oil or Transmission Pan Heating Pad # KH24150 is intended to be left plugged in overnight, which will make your cold-weather morning starts a lot easier. As a note the cartridge heater should not be used with 100 percent antifreeze solutions, and the engine should not be started with the heater still plugged in. If you have any further questions please feel free to reach back out to me anytime and I will be more than happy to further assist you in your towing...

  • How to Install the Kat's Heaters Pan Heating Pad Part # KH24150
    In order to promote adhesion and ensure the Kat's Heaters Pan Heating Pad part # KH24150 sticks to the bottom of your oil pan you will want to first clean the surface. For this, I recommend taking some brake parts cleaner or engine degreaser and spraying down the bottom of the pan then using a wire brush to break up any leftover material.

  • Recommended Temperature Range For Installing A Kat's Heaters Heating Pad
    The ideal tape application temperature range is 70°F to 100°F (21°C to 38°C). Initial tape application to surfaces at temperatures below 50°F (10°C) is not recommended because the adhesive becomes too firm to adhere readily. However, once properly applied, low temperature holding is generally satisfactory. If it's 3 degrees right now where you live like it is for us here in Wentzville, Missouri then I recommend pulling your vehicle into a garage and using a space heater to warm the area...

  • Is Silicone Needed For Kat's Heaters Oil or Transmission Pan Heating
    Yes, the Kat's Heaters Oil or Transmission Pan Heating Pad - 4" x 5" - 120V - 150 Watts part # KH24150 will work on the 2014 Acura ILX 2.0. The heating pad attaches the oil or transmission pan with very strong 3m tape. It is already sealed with a silicone material to resist oil and acid so the silicone is not needed.

  • How Long Will a Kat's Oil Heater Pad Stay On and How Hot Will It Get
    As long as you clean the surface of the oil pan the Kat's Heaters Oil Pan Heating Pad # KH24150 is basically going to stick as long as you want it to. It won't wear out and fall off as the adhesive is very strong. The element of the Kat's Heaters Oil Pan Heating Pad get surprisingly hot. Kat's says it will get between 300 and 400 degrees if not attached to something that will allow the heat to dissipate into. Now how hot will it keep your oil? That depends a lot on the outside temperature,...

  • Why Does My Kats Heaters Transmission/Oil Heating Pad Have a Burning Smell When Plugged In
    If you turn on your Kat's Heaters Oil or Transmission Pan Heating Pad # KH24150 for the first time of the season and smell a burning dust, this is completely normal. It just means there's dust in your heating unit, which is harmless and should burn off quickly. However, If you smell an electrical burning smell, then this is not normal and would mean the unit has gone bad and would need replacing, and since your pads are 8-9 years old, this may be the case.

  • How Does the Kats Heaters Oil Pan Heating Pad # KH24150 Attach
    The backside of the Kat's Heaters Oil Pan Heating Pad # KH24150 that you referenced has an adhesive that will attach it to the oil pan of the vehicle it is used on. Basically you will peel back the backing of the pad and then you will stick it where you want it.

  • Oil Pan Heater for 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500
    I looked up how much oil a replacement oil pan for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 holds and found it to be 6 quarts, which would make the Kat's Heaters Oil/Transmission Pan Heating Pad - 5" x 4" - 120V - 150W # KH26150 a great option as it is designed for 5 - 8 quart engine oil pans. There is no specific size of oil pan heater that fits a 2015 Chevy Silverado as these heaters are not made for specific vehicles, they are made for the amount of oil the vehicle has, like you said.

  • Can Kat's Cartridge Style Engine Block Heater KH11814 Be Left Plugged In Overnight
    Engine heaters like the Kat's Cartridge Style Engine Block Heater # KH11814 are intended to be left plugged in overnight. Their pad-style oil/transmission pan heaters like # KH24150 also are made to be used this way so that your cold-weather morning starts are easier. The cartridge heater should not be used with a 100-percent antifreeze solution; the engine should not be started with the heater still plugged in.

  • Recommended Engine Oil Heater for a 2007 GMC Sierra
    I do have an option for you but Kat's does not make an Engine Oil Dipstick Heater like part # KH15200 long enough to work for your application. The above dipstick heater is for smaller vehicles and would not work well for your 2007 GMC Sierra. A better option for you would be to use a pad heater like the Kat's Heaters Heating Pad part # KH24150. The heating pad can be placed on either your vehicle's oil or transmission pan. The heater will be much more equipped for your truck as it is...

  • What Engine Block Heater Fits My 2010 Chevy Aveo5?
    i went ahead and contacted my tech at Five Start Manufacturing (the maker of Kat's Heaters). For your 2010 Chevy Aveo5, they actually made two engine options: 1.6L I.4 and the 1.6L XSE. The only way to use the Kat's Heater's Custom Engine Block Heater # KH11405 is if you have the 1.6L XSE. The way you can tell if you have the XSE engine is if your 8th digit in your VIN is an "E." The location of the plug is in the front left of the engine block. I went ahead and attached a diagram that...

  • Engine and Oil Heaters for 2017 Toyota Prius
    Kat's Heaters confirms that for the 2017 Toyota Prius base model their frost plug heater # KH11813 is a confirmed fit. Their install instructions are linked for you and these note the installation location is in the block core hole at the center of the front of the engine. It is not necessary to drain coolant. Another way to warm your engine for easier starting is to use a dipstick-type oil heater # KH15200 that simply slides into your dipstick tube. This oil heater will work on pretty...
