Re: lakewood 7096 heater

Some of the newer models have a thermal fuse which may be blown. It doesn't look like a normal fuse at all. It is similar to a transistor in looks and should have continuity from one end to the other. It will be tied in to the incoming power cord inside the heater, and may be covered with rubber coating within the wire. It will look different when you notice it. Sometimes its too far down inside where the heat causes it to blow prematurely. The purpose is to cut the power to the unit in case it overheats. You can get one at radio shack for less than a couple of bucks. The older models don't normally have one, but I would suggest you put one in it if that's the case.

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.
