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?

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!

The Lakewood 5500 oil-filled heater has stopped working. When switched on, it's indicator lights come on but the heater doesn't heat. I looked for a fuse but found none visible. What must I do?


Similar problem here. But in my case, it was a blown fuse. There's an in-line fuse on the internal wiring of the heater. Take the control-side off (remove the bottom grey plastic bracket, then remove a sheet metal screw, then slide the whole assembly down off of the radiator). Where the elements go into the reservoir at the bottom of the radiator, the white wire should have an inline fuse connected to it. It will probably be covered with what looks like heat-shrink tubing. Snip, snip, and replace.

Need wiring for on-off switch


Hi Joe. Typically the switch interrupts the hot wire, which is black. Therefore, two black wires are connected to the two screws on the switch. Look in the area where you see the one black wire and you should find a second black wire. Connect each of the to the switch and you will be switching [controlling] the hot [black] wire.

The heat no longer comes on.


The Lakewood 5500 heater may not heat, yet all lights are on, due to the thermal fuse inside the control box being blown.

It works like a normal fuse, yet will blow if the temperature gets too hot. When it opens, it will prevent any electricity to get to the heating coils and connot be reset. It must be replaced.

You can open the control area by removing the front foot of the unit, removing another screw behind that foot. This will allow you to slide the whole control end off the unit. At the bottom next to the heating element, you will notice 3 wires to the elements - red, blue, & white.

The white wire runs underneath the terminals & is sheathed. Under this sheath is the thermal fuse.

Be sure to replace it with the same temperature rating (167 C).


I don't recommend bypassing the thermal fuse, however, due to it's a safety issue.

I found the fuse at the following link:

ROCKER SWITCH DIAGRAM


89106a6.jpg
On the top of the switch (inside the heater) there is a common connection.....even though it looks as if it is connected (electrically), it isn't electrically affected by the switch; it's just used as a post. It's just the place where the striped wire connects to the "common" point for the heater coils (they are in a parallel). Also, while you're in there you might want to put some electrical grease on the exposed conductors.....mine had quite a bit of corrosion (which was the reason for the failure). I had to replace 3 of the female connectors.

Window Fan switch bad


Steve, Your fan model is HV-18-WR; I have 2 with the same problem. I can't find a source for DYE-3606 switches either. Here is one source for rotary switches; one might be suitable: http://www.alliedelec.com/Catalog/Indices/Products.asp?sid=46BBAA8076DBE17F&N=4294828748 I can draw a diagram of how the existing switch is connected, but I don't know how that would translate to a replacement switch.
