    I have had this model 3 months & it just stopped. My circuit breaker isn't off. Yes it is plugged in. This is the 3rd Lakewood I have had this winter & all stopped working & had to be returned. Bad thing about this one is it is too late to take back to the store so your fabulous warranty says mail freight paid to you-what idiot does that. Who can pay for postage since it just went up again. I guess that is why you do that so you never have to honor your warranty. My last Lakewood you can be sure.

Hi, I have a nice master B150D that ran flawlessly last season,brought it out this year replaced nozzle,spark plug,new fuel. Fired it up ran for 30 sec. pop's the circuit breaker,reset,runs 20 sec....

if a circuit breaker pops i assume its an RCELD or is it a MCB type
it is some leakage to earth somewhere in the electrics
if it runs and pops the breaker
and you can plug it in and it will sit there
then i assume its something do do with the fan system
or ignitor . driver system
look for sources of leakage to earth
and you could measure the peek current it uses with a multimeter inline
set to AC amps

anyway its defo not a gonner just some bad electrics

Great device easy to use OK but the electric cord is always very warm when on. Also very high electric consummation. Not sure if it is just my device? I purchased it in Walmart in Grants Pass, OR last...

As far as the cord being warm that is pretty normal as is the power consumption depending on the temp. setting. However I think that much of a increase is excessive so I think if it was me I would return it to walmart and try to get a replacement. It has been my experience with walmart that they generally are quite good at in store replacement within 90 days.That way you could have a basis for comparison. Thank you.

My fireplace was purched in 2005. Since then I have replaced the Vanguard Thermalheostat blower twice the last time was last fall. It is now going bad. Is there a problem with these blowers? My next one...

I would try the makers of the fire place perhaps google them see if they have a tech line they should be able to tell you if this a common fault or offer help with this type of blower .

My fireplace was purched in 2005. Since then I have replaced the Vanguard Thermal/rheostat blower twice, the last time was last fall. It is now going bad. Is there a problem with these blowers? My next one...

I have not heard of a problem with the blowers or a recall. But depending on what unit you have, and who you purchase the blower from, perhaps you could get a warranty so that you aren't spending out of pocket everytime. The original Vangaurd manufacturer, Desa International, went out of business in 2008, but there is a new company that took over some lines of the units and are still making the blowers for most of them. They hold a warranty on the blowers if you purchase is from a Distributor. I hope this helps a little!

Electric fan motor sometimes wont start. It tries

Your unit is a year old and sits around most of the year. Disassemble the unit to get to the fan motor. When you can see the bushings on both ends of the motor shaft use a light oil such as 3-in-one to lubricate the bushings. Rotate the fan blades for a while. Relubricate. Continue until the motor turns freely. Clean up any oil spills. This should solve your problem if you haven't damaged the motor by trying to run it with dry bushings. The lubrication should be done at the end of each season and at the begining before the unit is put in service. Let me know if I can be of anymore help.


Thanks for using FixYa

Pilot flame moves off thermocouple when main flame

You must get the dust out of the ODS chamber that builds up during warmer months. If you go monkeying with the flap it will quit altogether. I use a simple squirt of rustbuster into the pilot, let it dry and all is well once more. You can get rustbuster at ace hardware for $2

Rinnai Energysaver 1001FT, ignites, blows 5mins then shuts down.

Sounds like it is reaching high limit...either the filters on the back are plugged, or the manifold pressure isn't adjusted properly. IF the exhaust were plugged on the unit, it wouldn't fire at all, since it has a pressure switch to verify vent flow. The slightest blockage, the unit will lock out to prevent damage to the unit.

Quit working

Well how about the cord, ? may be a safty switch has stuck, preventing it from comming on. Try thumpping the sides a few times stomp it on the floor. Not real hard just enough to jolt it a bit. this may free up a stickie switch in side.This has worked for me. DFD

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 may take a couple of times before it stops blowing the breaker, but it works.
