How do I clean the
Open the grills and use a long stem tipped with cloth dipped in kerosene to lightly clean the dust. Then use a similar arrangement of dry cloth wound on it to wipe clean the moist dirt. Repeat the process and you will have a clean blade. Use a jet air blower to assist you , use face mask and do it out in the open.

Need electric wire to plug
- Lakewood is long out of business and a stock cord is going to be next to impossible to find. But I can help you save some money and some headaches trying to find a new cord.
- If I remember right the 007 utilizes a simple two prong cord. The tip of the cord is simple the fatter end is your ground and the smaller end is the AC power feed. These fans don't draw to terribly much power either.
- It is a rare occasion I would buy an original cord because they are so darn over priced. Here is what I would do.
- Go to your local hardware store and get a cord with a two pron tip on it. This may cost $6 top. Just a medium use cord will work for this fan.
- Now you will see the wires for the cord on the back of the fan motor. The hot wire is usually black (In the USA and Canada) The green wire is ground and the white wire is neural. (This is for a three wire setup. For two wire omit the white wire. The wires on your fan should be colored Black and Green. Just remember that black is the hot wire and the other is the ground.
- To make this less difficult the black wire off the fan will go to the wire that leads to the small end of the connector and the other wire (ground) will go to the wire (on the new cord) that tracks to the thick en of the connector. Placing your new cored flat and even makes this easier.
- You will need to soldier the ends (or crimp the wires together) and make sure you insulate them with liquid electric tape, shrink tube etc.
- Total cost should be less than $7.
- I did find one place that sells the 3 prong cord http://www.nelsonappliance.com/Power+Cords+for+Lakewood+model+MC42+Fan.html for the fans. If yours should be a 3 prong tip then this one will work too but if memory serves yours is a two tip cord.
- If you have any questions or comments please feel free to ask but you won't find a stock cord just for this fan because they are out of business.
- Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
