Crack on iron baseboard heater.

Can you repair the crack in an iron baseboard heater with an epoxy or other compound or the whole thing needs to be replaced?

Thanks

I assume the baseboard is leaking? I would be very leery of trying any repair. What if it starts leaking again while you are away?

Replacement cast-iron baseboard units are still made (try Weil-McLain). Or it might be simpler to replace it with a fin-tube convector.
