Dead Oil Filled Radiator

I have had the unit for over a year, and it is now dead. Looks like others have had the same problem with other brands, something about a power switch failure. These are relatively cheap units but I would like to fix it for less than the cost of a replacment if I can. An e-mail to the company has not produced any results to date. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...

    I have the same problem with my oil filled heater. A thermostat switch is gone and we cannot find one to fit. We tried calling the company and they said that unit is discontinued (of course). I have tried a number of small appliance repair shops and plumbers in the area, but no one can help. We bought it 3 yrs ago and only used it for a week or two, so it is not worn out by any means. There has to be a thermostat switch on this planet somewhere.

    Fahrenheat oil- filled heater worked fine last season for use, 3-5 times. This season used once and it heated beautifully, now there is no heat although it is turned to hightest level. Can't find s# or other manufacture details on heater. Manual is misplaced. Woe is me and I am cold. Cold-one.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FIX YOUR HEATER ...THAT IS STUPID AND WILL MORE THAN LIKELY CAUSE A FIRE. SO DONT. Just call the 1-800 number on the back of the unit. The customer rep will tell you what to do from there.

On lakewood radiator that was dead I found problem caused by what I believe is fuse opening. Part is located in white wire which goes from thermostat to common terminal on radiator terminal block. The part is in series with this wire and is covered by a white movable sleeve and is dressed/located under the terminal block.

If this is a generic problem then it is most likley the THERMOSTAT. This is the switch on the end of the radiator that regulates the temperature. It is possible to bypass the thermostat so that the radiator is permanantly on.

Hi Our Delonghi Rapido heater has just started leaking oil, maybe a mL or 2 a day. Can this be repaired?

When a compresser leaks oil it is dead. If this is an air/heat unit you are out of luck. If anything I said does not match the facts of your system disregard my comment.

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

If it feels like the whole thing is dead in the water, then it is probably your fuse in the back. always include the year and the make of your unit. then people can help more. fuses on modern refrigs are mounted on the circuit board in the back and have to be soldered off and on.

Unfortunately this tv has received many bad reviews. One being the remote does not function properly while trying to turn the tv on/off. Other negative reviews have read the remote has a very short range. Can you turn the tv on by using the buttons found on top of the tv itself? The remote comes with 2 AAA batteries. When you said the tv is dead did any lights come on the front? If so check the power supply for any bulging capacitors. You may have several whose life span has come to an end and stopped charging enouugh to power on the back lights which lights the screen. This may be your problem. Good Luck!!!!!!!
