You would have to drain the oil, look on the side normaly under the cover you would vind a drain plug.
After you replaced the thermostat , you just need to put the oil back, remember to tilt it to the side,throw the oil slowly so you dont cause any air lock's. then put the plug back and your set.

Good luck..

Oil filled heater won't heat up. It does turn on and the light illuminates but no heat. I't been in basement for the summer.


Could be that the thermostat is disconnecting because it senses too warm.

Plug the heater to the wall, turn on the switches.
Turn the thermostat knob all the way to min. It should make a click sound and the heater should not get warm.
Turn the thermostat knob all the way to max. It should make a click sound and the heater should get warm.
If the heater is still not warming up and/or you don't hear clicks, then the heater has bigger a problem.
With the cheap prices of the heaters, it is not worth trying to have an electrician check it out. Just buy a new one.

No heat in 2003 buick lesabre but engine overheating


The first thing you need to do is check the cooling system coolant level. If it is low or empty, there is not sufficient coolant to cool the engine or to transfer through the heater core to supply the cabin with heat. Fill it up and check for leaks. Once leaks have been repaired, change the thermostat, engine oil and oil filter. If it is full, you may need to change the coolant due to its age, as well as the thermostat, engine oil and oil filter. The reason for the oil change is due to the thermal breakdown of the oil in overheating conditions. Also inspect the water pump to ensure it is being driven by the belt. You may also have air in the cooling system that is causing all your problems. Generally only happens when the cooling system is improperly filled. Make sure you add the correct mixture of coolant and water. Incorrect ratios will cause you similar problems.Coolant protects the cooling system and the water dissipates the heat.

My Lakewood heater turns on but will not produce heat. Any ideas as to what is wrong????


Same symptom on my oil-filled Lakewood model 5500. Used an ohmmeter to check it out and found that 1) the thermostat is defective and potentially a fire hazard due to intermittent operation. 2) Then I learned of reports about some Lakewood oil-filled heaters squirting hot oil and injuring people, and 3) the manufacturer subsequently going out of business. Three strikes and you're out.

I cut off my heater's power cord and threw the whole thing away, and recommend others to do the same.

My crown 1500w oil filled heater will not work I have changed fuse in plug no different can you advise please?


Hi,

My experience with those oil filled heaters is that they don't make the thermostat and the internal wiring heavy enough... therefore the thermostat and/or the woring burns up in them...after enough time and heat they no longer work...they are repairable, but you cannot get the appropriate parts to fix them in most cases...

Lakewood oil-filled heater not heating up


It is quite possibly the thermostat. Dont risk your health these heaters are not very expensive and I would suggest going to buy a new one from your local department store.

Not heating


Sounds like either the thermostat or the element. If you hear a clicking when you rotate the thermostat you can assume that it is working. My advise is to replacethe heater. The element is sealed inside the oil chamber and the thermostat will cost almost as much as a new heater, sorry.
