Oil filled heater won't heat up. It does turn on and the light illuminates but no heat. I't been in basement for the summer.


Could be that the thermostat is disconnecting because it senses too warm.

Plug the heater to the wall, turn on the switches.
Turn the thermostat knob all the way to min. It should make a click sound and the heater should not get warm.
Turn the thermostat knob all the way to max. It should make a click sound and the heater should get warm.
If the heater is still not warming up and/or you don't hear clicks, then the heater has bigger a problem.
With the cheap prices of the heaters, it is not worth trying to have an electrician check it out. Just buy a new one.

I have a Lakewood convection air heater model 515-T. I need a leg and 3 screws. Is that possible., Thanks


Well, they don't seem to sell parts for these. So the best bet would be to try ebay or craigs list, for a used heater for parts.

Our coleman fireplace insert starts to warm and then shorts out


Not sure if you have an electric fireplace or a gas fireplace. But, from the way you worded the description of your problem, I'm going to assume that it's electric. I'm also assuming that all the other features of the fireplace work, but the heater doesn' t. If that is the case, below is what the Owners Manual recommends doing.

5. Flame effect operates, but heater does not blow warm air

The TEMPERATURE button is a thermostat control for the heater. Each preset temperature setting has a different thermostat setting as shown to the right:

The heater will NOT activate if the room temperature is above the thermostat setting. If the ambient room temperature is 78° F the user will need to select Setting 3 in order for the heater to be activated. It is normal in warmer climates and in rooms with higher ambient temperatures for the heater to not activate on the lower settings due to the thermostat control. 5a. Try increasing the temperature setting. See drawing:

temp-control-fig.jpg 6. If unit heater does not function, but Power and Heater switches are in the "ON" position and thermostat is set on "HI" 6a. Turn all switches to the "OFF" position and unplug the unit from the wall outlet for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes plug the unit back into the wall outlet, and operate as normal.

Need a thermal cutoff for our Lakewood 5500


We have these heaters and haven't had a fuse fail yet. I think it's because after the first time I got that crackling sound after moving it while it was on, I stopped doing that, and only move it with the power off, and wait two minutes before restarting it, so the oil can resettle.

However, the thermostats are now failing. Anyone know if this part is available?

If i turn the switches on they light up but nothing happens! no heating up or nothing not a sound. does it take a while for it to warm? is i suppose to be silent? or should i be able to hear it start up?


very little sound and it does take quite a while to heat up .. you should feel warmth in 15 min .. if it doesnt heat at all then there might be an open "over temperature" fuse inside ... one of the good things about this heater is that its so quiet ..
