Lakewood heater got so hot - thermostat dial melted and fell off

Our Lakewood Oil-Filled Electric Radiator Heater got soooo hot last night that the thermostat dial/control melted right off the heater. If I hadn't seen the dial on the floor (when I woke up for one of my many bathroom trips, we could have burned to death if it had caught on fire! Freaked me out so bad, then just made me mad. We have gotten good service from this heater, until now. Is this something that happens often with a Lakewood (or other similar heaters)? Thank you!

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 lakewood electric heater plug gets hot and starts melting, I have to use a three prong adapter to plug this in..can u help?


Sounds like heat element is defective drawing too much current. Make sure you are not using an extension cord on this heater, it has to be plugged directly into wall socket. Post model number on here so we know what unit we are dealing with.
