When plugging in to the good outlit, the on off switches both light up. It dosn seem like it is trying to heat up. Im wondering if it is the heating element? I cant see how to take apart to fix it, or even if it is still under warrenty(just over a year old) Thanks for your help,its cold!
It,s the same problem i have. It is the thermal unit that opens up when unit over-heats. I'm an electrician, and was able to take my unit apart. So far i can't find the part to fix it. One place on the internet says that Lakewood has filed chapter 7 . I could make heater work, if i jump out the part, but would be unsafe if a overheating problem acurrs.

I''m replying almost a year later, but this may help others who are having this problem. There seem to be a lot of problems with the tip over switch in the Comfort Zone radiator heaters (this is the switch at the very top, inside the panel, above the thermostat). I had the same problem- no heat, switches weren't lighting up. I bypassed the tip over switch (we have never tipped over one of our radiator heaters, so it's not an issue) and connected the switch wires with a wire nut and then further secured the wire nut with electrical tape. Now the heater works as it should again.
after 3 times of unsuccessful lighting it will lock out and you have to reset by unplugging it or turning power off ...where is it failing...is the hot surface ignitor glowing on unit or does it make it to that point... it is a porcelein glow plug in unit... the enducer draft motor should come on first then close the pressure switch this is the round device with a hose on it..check the hose pull it off and blow through it ... after the pressure switch closes then the ignitor should come on and you should be getting 120 volts to the plug on it...check that may be it ...after it glows then the gas valve opens and it fires once heated then the blower will come on... check on the burner assembly all your safety switches some of them have resets in the middle push the little buttons and make sure they are good.... hope this helps you out... the ignitor is a common problem
4 blinks indicates a failure at the high limit switch. This switch is usually located on the heat exchanger face plate and has two wires going to it. Usually it fails because the furnace has over heated. The most common reasons are a plugged filter or coil that is limiting the airflow over the heat exchanger. Turn off the power to the furnace, replace the filter, clean any coils in the plenum and verify that all the vents in the home are open. Then turn the power back on and see if it is fixed. :)
If the above solution does not fix the problem, the limit switch itself may be bad from excessive heat. Replace it with a new one. Good Luck!
No, that would just cause you to have huge flame. There is another high pressure switch located next to the flame sensor/ pilot genator that can cause this problem it is the size of a quarter and is screwed down with 2 phillip head screws
I'm not an expert, but I have two of these units that are working fine.
The on/off switch (the top switch) has a light in it that illuminates when the heater is on and heating. If this light comes on and there is no heat, then the element is probably burned out.
The heater has a safety switch that prevents the unit from working if it is not upright. If the heater was stored for any length of time on its side, the safety switch might have stuck in the off position. Unplug the heater and with the heater upright, try shaking it or slapping it firmly with your hand to se if this fixes the problem.
If none of this works, then as sunmasc says, the thermostat is bad.
