You have to hold the button down for 30 seconds at least before turning the knob to ON. If you are doing this and it still goes out after you let up on the knob, then it needs a new flame sensor, or thermocouple. Same thing different names.

I need two fan blades (squirrel cages) for the lower blower on 2 windchaser air conditioners, cant find parts.

A lot of portable units come out of overseas factories that build a certain amount for production and sales. They rarely supply any parts for after sales service however, as a lot of these machines are co-branded with other manufacturers, you may be able to acquire fans from another manufacturer. The only problem is determining what model number they use. You could try having a look in a retail store and picking one that is exactly the same a s yours but may be a different brand. You need to be definite though. Often the knobs, stickers, filter covers etc are different but when you have a very close look at the main parts such as the body mouldings, air inlet and outlet positions etc. You will soon pick which ones are the same machine, just different Brand..

Model 707 Lakewood portable heater stopped working

I don't know how to make your heater work again, but I do know (from long experience with Lakewood 707s) that the setting knobs often fail to function properly even if the heating element still works. My solution is to plug the heater into an adapter with an on/off switch on it and use that to control the power. I leave the setting knobs on the heater itself in the position where I usually use them (max heat). These are excellent heaters except for the knob problem.

Pilot will not stay lit unless red knob depressed

There is a thermocouple that protrudes up into the flame. If the thermocouple is bad or out of adjustment it will not produce enough electric current to lock the red knob down allowing the heater go into operating mode. This thermocouple is a safety device that senses weather there is a flame or not. If no flame no heat don't turn on. If heat then there must be flame OK turn on. The thermocouple should protrude into the flame about an inch to heat it sufficiently to trigger the valve if it doesn't adjust it into the flame more. If adjusting does no good replace it. Take the old thermocouple to the store you bought the heater at and get a replacement. If you cant get it there almost all hardware stores or heating stores will have generic replacements that will also work.
