I'm thinking of buying a house, but the heating looks like pic related.

I'm not really at home in convector builds. The home-owner says its the heat sensor and that it is only loose but still works.

Is he right?
Is this easy to fix?

please halp

diy is a slow board.. don't expect quick (<1 day) answers.

Convectors are just hot water radiators, tho some can use both hot water or steam.
The thermostat is bog simple, as long as the hollow tube that feeds the sensor isn't kinked or cut it's fine. If it is kinked or cut then you have to replace the whole valve assembly.

That does look like a frigging ratsnest.

Sorry for my inconvience ":)

And thanks for the reply.
It seems the owners have just pushed the wire through the grate and be done with it...

So in short, if I chech the metal tube and the wire for damage and find none (apart from the bends and twists) it should be ok?

Yep.
When the heat is on you can test it by dunking the bulb into a cup of cool water. That will trick the valve into opening and the unit should heat up. Same with really hot water and making it stop, but it's safer to do the cold water check. Just don't use a torch to check, that's too hot and can damage the valve.
