Now that's a FIRE!

As for posts surrounding the wire getting HOT and setting off the light on the heater.... Here's what I read in trouble shooting. Check to ensure that the connection to the socket is not loose.....
Yesterday, my unit had burnt the wall socket and heater plug. I hadn't had the wire (overheating) problem prior to this. Then my wife and I realized that the WALL SOCKET was not a "Tight Fit" with the heater plug. So It lead me to believe it was Arching which caused the socket to melt. Other sockets in my house are fine, nice and snug. So I'm replacing the socket today, along with the cord and let you know what happens. I just had no idea that a less than snug socket would possibly burn down my house.

SOURCE: Lakewood oil filled heater model 5600/7 won't turn on.

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.

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.

SOURCE: Need a thermal cutoff for our Lakewood 5500

We have these heaters and haven't had a fuse fail yet. I think it's because after the first time I got that crackling sound after moving it while it was on, I stopped doing that, and only move it with the power off, and wait two minutes before restarting it, so the oil can resettle.

However, the thermostats are now failing. Anyone know if this part is available?

There may be no provision for adding oil (?). Most oil-filled radiators are filled and sealed at the factory.

Reposting: I have a lakewood oil filled radiator heater that will NOT turn on. Is there someplace or something I can do to have it fixed?


Depending on its age, you can return it to the place of purchase. Because the cost of repair will almost certainly exceed the cost of replacement, it is not a practical option. If you have a friend who is comfortable with electrical systems, you could try that. There are a few brands of oil filled heater that have recalls. The consumer safety bureau or the manufacturer may have information about a recall on your product. This is a good time of year to purchase a new one as many stores are just starting sales on heating appliances. Farmerbear at FixYa
