Here is your problem and yes it can be fixed.

More than likely your thermal cutoff tripped because your heater got too hot.

Solution:
1. Unplug unit.
2. remove front support feet and screw underneath face plate will slide off.
3. You will see the heating element, a white wire is coming out of it. There is a white sleeve on the wire tucked up into the element. Pull the wire out and slide sleeve off to expose the thermal switch labeled (S.W.C. sw-120t ect.) You can google it to learn more about the cutoff. If you know how you can test the cutoff with a ammeter or voltmeter, If you don't google how to test electrical systems. Remember "first do no harm"
4.
a. If you can replace the cutoff do so (this is the recommended way)
b. If you don't want to replace it cut the cutoff out and solder the wires back together. (be warned that this will bypass the safety system) If you do this be careful to not leave your radiator unattended.
5. After soldering the wire, taping it will electrical tape. Replace face plate from step 1 and 2 and your heater will work.
P.s. If your heater is still under warranty just contact lakewood.

Now that's a FIRE!

As for posts surrounding the wire getting HOT and setting off the light on the heater.... Here's what I read in trouble shooting. Check to ensure that the connection to the socket is not loose.....
Yesterday, my unit had burnt the wall socket and heater plug. I hadn't had the wire (overheating) problem prior to this. Then my wife and I realized that the WALL SOCKET was not a "Tight Fit" with the heater plug. So It lead me to believe it was Arching which caused the socket to melt. Other sockets in my house are fine, nice and snug. So I'm replacing the socket today, along with the cord and let you know what happens. I just had no idea that a less than snug socket would possibly burn down my house.

My EW6708K stopped working after a power outage (was not on at the time, just plugged in). I couldn't find any info online. So I used my last option: I took it apart. Two screws on the bottom opens the unit's electronics. Two more screws inside to get tol the circuit board. I was looking for a reset button. There was a tiny white “thing” on the circuit board. I pressed it and reassembled the unit. That did the trick! Simple. Just be neat and put everything back the way it was.

Tip

Oil Filled Radiator Heater Leaking


<p>A very common and increasing popular source of <b>supplemental heat</b> in the last few years has been the <b>oil filled electric radiator. </b> <br /> <p>These <b>radiator heaters</b> are filled with an oil that circulates through the fins of the heater and is heated by <b>electric heating elements</b>. The result is a steady even type of heat that has a lower surface temperature then many <b>space heaters</b>, making them a great way to get <b>supplement heating</b> into a room when you have pets, small children or combustibles near by.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>One of the big questions that comes up with these <b>oil filled heaters</b> is what to do if they start to leak. The answer is that if the<b> oil heater</b> starts to leak then it is no good anymore and needs to be disposed of. These<b> heaters are filled with oil</b> at the factory and then are sealed tightly. Because of this there is no need to ever <b>refill the heater with oil</b> again. The heaters are sealed with the proper oil inside for the <b>best heating efficiency. </b> <br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>So what this means is that if you have one of these <b>oil filled radiator heaters, </b>you will never have any <b>maintenance</b> or worries about <b>adding oil to the heater</b>. But if there ever is a leak then the heater is also no good and will need to be throw out and replaced. Very few of these <b>oil filled heat units</b> ever leak, but as is always the case there are always some that do.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>A word of caution about heating efficiency. Always remember that when <b>heating with electricity</b>, the <b>laws of physics</b> always apply. <b>For every 1 KW of electric you will only ever get 3415 BTU's of heat.</b><br /> <p>There is no way to get any more or any less than that, so if anyone tries to tell you that their electric heater is more efficient then the next one they are not telling the truth.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p><br /> <br />

Does not heat up. Is there a way of opening the radiator?


Oil heaters produce no fumes or flames and feature whisper-quiet operation. Because the oil within the heater never needs to be replaced, oil-filled heaters are maintenance-free. In addition, these types of heaters are compact and portable - allowing you to carry them from room to room. Many also feature carrying handles or a set of casters for easy mobility
some of these types of heaters have a hole with a plug, that allow you to add oil, but few of these are in use today. so this being said it is most likely the heating element is failing to fully heat up the oil. parts may be found, if researched in detail on the net


also be known that the electrical componets are most likely to fail befor the oil evaporates. so look at all overheating controls and so on.

good luck,

Lakewood radiator heater model number 5101. The heater just stopped working all of a sudden. The buttons still light up when switched on but there is no heating. please help as I dont have any other...


Sounds as if the element is burnt out or the tstat is broken. the tstat is the more common as they use very cheap ones. Unfortunately you can't get these. My suggestion is to buy a new one.

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
