I went to buy a new oil filled heater because mine was blowing the breaker. After I bought two, I heard the sales rep telling a customer to store the heater on it's side or upside down or give it a good shake to loosen the oil from the bottom. So, I went home and tried this...it may take a couple of times before it stops blowing the breaker, but it works.

My lakewood oil filled heater model 5600/7 just stopped working. It won't turn on..no lights. There is no history of tipping over.


The reason that it stopped is an open circuit. It is probably a blown thermal fuse. However, it could be any of the following if that is not the problem:

bad switch, broken or disconnected wire, burned open heater element, bad connections between terminals and wires, or between wire connectors and the wires within them.

If you take it apart, you will find the heat sensitive thermal fuse device under the heating elements, near the bottom of the unit. If the thermal fuse is good, it will appear as a short to an ohmmeter (zero ohms). If it is failed, it will appear as an open (infinite ohms).

The thermal fuse device can be replaced. Here is where to get one:

The thermal fuse may be this one, but check the temperature indication on yours first: Item#: TH-TF167C

Good luck.

I have 2 Lakewood 5500 oilfilled radiator heaters. The inline fuse has gone out in both of them. Where can I find this fuse?


Hi ladybug75846,
I have the same problem. My husband checked the continuity and found out the thermistor is the problem. The thermistor is stamped S.W.C. SW-122. If you find a source for these, would you kindly post it. Thanks!

No I never had any luck and the parts likely 1/2 the cost or more of a new one at wal mart and the heat element would still be old too

I have a lakewood 5600/7 doesnt work has power going into heater element none coming out. where can i get replacement element


Your best bet is to find someone who has discarded they heater,and get the part you need,these heaters are not affordable to repair,by the time you purchased a element,you could have bought a new one.Do like I do,and buy a new one,save all the ones that go out,year to year,and use them for parts,it really works.I hope I help you somewhat.

Need new electric cord for model 7000/a lakewood heater oil filled


Depending on handy you are, the power cords for heaters can be replaced, but may require soldering or other electrical and mechanical skills. You MUST replace the cord with one that has the same amperage and heat ratings.....that goes for the plug too.
