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.

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!

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.

Review from a similar Oil Pan Pad in Oil Pan Heater


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.

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.

Review from a similar Oil Pan Pad in Oil Pan Heater


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!!

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 !!!

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.

Just received heater today.

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

  • How Does the Kat's Heater Engine Oil Heater # KH26150 Attach to Oil Pan
    The part # KH26150 that you referenced uses a flexible 4 X 5 inch heating pad that is attached by peeling the adhesive backing and sticking it to the surface you wish to heat. This is a 150 watt heating pad that has a silicone covering that resists oil and acid. Before attaching the pad I would recommend thoroughly cleaning the oil pan.

  • Can Oil Pan Engine Heater KH26150 Be Bent to Fit Oil Pan
    Yes you can bend the edge of the engine heating pad part # KH26150 if needed to fit your 2009 Subaru Forester.

  • Can Kat's Heaters Oil/Transmission Pan Heating Pad # KH26150 Bend to Fit Smaller Oil Pan
    Yes, it would be fine to have the heater pad curve along the surface of the oil pan. As long as all of the pad is contacting the oil pan you are fine.

  • Engine Oil Heater Recommendation for a 2014 Hyundai Accent
    The Kat's Heaters Custom Fit Engine Block Heater # KH11812 is designed to fit in the cartridge hole of the block of your 2014 Hyundai Accent. From the research I did this hole on your vehicle will be behind the exhaust manifold. Since that can be pretty difficult to access you may be also interested in the magnetic block heaters like the # KH26150 that attaches to the oil pan to keep the oil warm.

  • Can Engine Oil Heater Work On 3200 Watt Generator
    The Kat's Heaters Handi-Heat Magnum Magnetic Engine Oil Heater, part # KH1190 is designed to warm the engine oil in cars, trucks, and farm machinery. This features a magnetic base that attaches to a metal surface like an oil pan and has heat output between 300 and 400 degrees F. The heating area is approximately 20 square inches. I am not sure this would be ideal for a generator due to the size of the motor on a generator. Many times a generator will have aluminum oil pans which would...

  • Best Oil/Transmission Fluid Heater for Vehicle with Rounded Oil Pan or Transmission Fluid Resevoir
    I recommend using the Kat's Heaters Oil/Transmission Pan Heating Pad # KH26150 which is a malleable pad that is attached to your oil pan via a 3M sticky pad and provides heat to keep your oil or transmission fluid from thickening in sub zero temperatures. Since you'll be able to bend this pad to fit your rounded oil pan on your 2006 Subaru Legacy Outback, this is the perfect solution.

  • How Long is the Cord on the Kat's Heater's Oil Transmission Pan Heaters
    The Kat's Heaters Oil/Transmission Pan Heating Pad # KH26150 comes with a removable 6 foot long cord. You can upgrade to a 10 foot long cord with part # KH28416.

  • Oil Heater Compatible with 1995 Chevy C1500
    The Kat's Heaters Engine Oil Dipstick Heater # KH15200 is the only option in that style. If 5 inches of the heating element is submerged in the oil, it will still work for you, but that seems unlikely based on the 27 inch length of the original dipstick. Another option for you is to use the Kat's Heaters Oil/Transmission Pan Heating Pad - 5" x 4" - 120V - 150W - Grounded Plug # KH26150 to heat your oil pan and keep the fluid warm for easy startup.

  • 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.

  • Engine Oil Heater for a 2006 Ford F-150
    The Kat's Heaters Engine Oil Dipstick Heater part # KH15200 is a universal fit oil heater that is designed to work on a variety of applications. We have not yet tested this heater on a 2006 Ford F-150 but as long as your dipstick tube is 1/4" in diameter or larger and at least 5" of the 24" dipstick is submerged in oil, then this heater will work well for you. A better option would be to use a pad heater like the Kat's Heaters Heating Pad part # KH26150 which is compatible with almost...

  • Oil and Transmission Heater Recommendation for Grasshopper Mower
    For your application I would go with a universal application like the Kat's Heaters Oil/Transmission Pan Heating Pad # KH26150. The plugs that you were looking at are vehicle specific and Kat's Heaters only checks fits for vehicles so they wouldn't have a known fit for your mower engine.

  • Battery and Oil Heater Recommendation for Detroit Diesel Engine
    If you wanted a battery heating pad for underneath the battery you'd want the part # KH22600 that you referenced or if you were looking for something that wraps around it you'd want the part # KH22300. If I were you I'd go with the wrapped style of heater unless you don't have the room for it. The best option we have for an engine heater would be a pad that attaches to the oil pan like the part # KH26150. Using a pad like this with a battery heater would make cold start ups MUCH easier...
