Question about Lakewood Oil-Filled Electric Radiator Heater

1 Answer

Lakewood model 7101 oil filled radiator

Front leg came off. the unit was on when I tipped the unit back and replaced the screws that held it in place. when I did so the unit began to smoke and smell a bit. Upon resetting the unit upright, the smoking stopped, however the unit stopped heating as well. I feel the element may have burnt out and would like to know how to replace it if that would indeed be the problem.

My Lakewood heater turns on but will not produce heat. Any ideas as to what is wrong????

Same symptom on my oil-filled Lakewood model 5500. Used an ohmmeter to check it out and found that 1) the thermostat is defective and potentially a fire hazard due to intermittent operation. 2) Then I learned of reports about some Lakewood oil-filled heaters squirting hot oil and injuring people, and 3) the manufacturer subsequently going out of business. Three strikes and you're out.

I cut off my heater's power cord and threw the whole thing away, and recommend others to do the same.

My oil filled heater does not seem as warm as it was when new. Does it need to be replaced?

Probably one or more of the heating elements are bad... they are not replacable... yes... you will need to buy a new one...

How do you know when the lakewood 7101 needs more oil added to it?

Your heater is sealed and never needs any more oil than already is there. In the unlikely event when the oil leaks out - replace the whole heater.

Light switches turn on but there is no heat. What am I to do with it? please help

This could be many things - like the thermostat, the wiring, one of the heating elements, etc. Unless this unit is less than 3 years old and depending on the use, it might be less expensive to replace it.

Need new electric cord for model 7000/a lakewood heater oil filled

Depending on handy you are, the power cords for heaters can be replaced, but may require soldering or other electrical and mechanical skills. You MUST replace the cord with one that has the same amperage and heat ratings.....that goes for the plug too.
