Lakewood 792/JR heater running w/o heat

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.

    Is there a identification part number for this fuse link? Where can it be purchased? Possibly at Radio Shack?

Got a lakewood heater jr 762 and the switch is burned out. Where do I got to find the replacement, or what's the part number? Thanks


I would assume you are talking about the thermostat switch. These switches are very simple to repair on your own. They are open without any housings and can be accesses by generally removing the panel from the heater. These thermostats fail at the two contact points due to the consistent arcing from opening and closing or on and off. These arcs create carbon buildup which then will not allow them to make the continuity necessary to turn the heater on. In some cases they may even fuse together keeping the heat source consistently running. If the heat source is continuously running with a faulty thermostat the thermal fuse may fault out. If the thermal fuse faults the fan may work but the heat source will not. These fuses will need replaced by an experienced person, you can generally pick these up on ebay for a few dollars. For carbon build up use a small wire brush to remove, while using fine sandpaper to drag between the contact points of the thermostat. Good luck. Mike

Lakewood Model 792/A My heater has stopped working. The light indicates that it is receiving power. I checked the tip switch to see if stuck open. OK Next step please? Jeff


Separate the case and trace out the wiring you are looking for an over heat limit switch. These are usually at the top of the case. You should also go over the element with a volt ohm meter make sure it is good, once you locate the thermal overload check it with the volt ohm meter it should read closed or dead short. If it reads open here is your culprit. It has been my observation that replacement parts can generally cost as much as replacing the entire heater. These I can pick up all day long for $19.00 at Home Depot the call them milk house heaters. Good luck with the repair.

Hello, I have a Lakewood space heater, Model # 792/JR, and one of my kids tried to dry her shirt by placing it over the heater and now it comes on but doesnt heat up. Can this be fixed?


The heater "over-heated". It's supposed to have a safety cut-out. The question is, can it reset itself? If there is no manual reset button on it, leave it unplugged for 30 minutes or so. If it still doesn't work, spend $20 on a new one.
