Question about Lakewood 792/JR Utility Heater
I have purchased several Lakewood 792/JR portable heaters and when new, they work fine. However, after about 1 year, they quit producing heat. I don't want to keep replacing the whole heater ... even though they're only $20-25 ... every year. Is there something that can be purchased locally and replaced that will restore the heat? Thanks, Michael
Hi Spybotics. I have the same problem and I traced mine down to a burned out over-heat fuse link. Check out my recent post. My guess is that you are having the same problem as me. It's not hard to tell - just take off the rear panel and test the link (looks like a small resistor in line with the element) with an ohm meter. Open circuit means burned out fuse link. DO NOT bypass the link, as an extreme fire hazard will exist without it.

Only use the heater on the 750 watt setting and it runs for years no problems:')
