Question about Lakewood Heating & Cooling

Is it possible to run the heater too high? The Lakewood 7000 a has a plug that looks burnt out. I know, we need to replace it, but what would be the cause of that?

The rolling feet are missing. Any idea how to find replacements


I have a Lakewood 7096 heater. We purchased it used and got 8 to 10 years of service out of it. It was never heavily used while in our possession, just to heat the bathroom for showers.

The 900W switch quit working after used it and showered Sunday. The 600W switch still works fine, but the unit doesn't produce much heat at any speed.

After looking at various posts on fixya today, I decided to pull the pair of switches out. The 900W switch is burnt. The wire attaching to the 900W switch is burnt and bare!!! I don't know what happened. I would be scared to use it again, even if I replaced the switches and the bare wire. I don't know if it's even safe to use the 600W setting.

Anyway, I purchased a sunbeam radiator heater this morning. The ol Lakewood has the wheels you are missing. If were to come to an agreement on price, I would be happy to ship them to you. They are in good shape, just a little squeeky, which a little oil would fix.

No lights on switch on--no heat--on LAKEWOOD mODEL 7000/A


Look for a thing called a Thermal Fuse, small, pencil sized cylindrical, silver, (usually) with stiff lead at each end. It should be in the Phase/Active line. Try replacing that.

No I never had any luck and the parts likely 1/2 the cost or more of a new one at wal mart and the heat element would still be old too

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.

ROCKER SWITCH DIAGRAM

On the top of the switch (inside the heater) there is a common connection.....even though it looks as if it is connected (electrically), it isn't electrically affected by the switch; it's just used as a post. It's just the place where the striped wire connects to the "common" point for the heater coils (they are in a parallel). Also, while you're in there you might want to put some electrical grease on the exposed conductors.....mine had quite a bit of corrosion (which was the reason for the failure). I had to replace 3 of the female connectors.
