Question about Lakewood Oil-Filled Electric Radiator Heater

1 Answer

I had my oil-filled radiator heater on last night in my bedroom, the door was cracked. I had it turned up on the highest settings (both temperature and wattage). Sometime during the night it quit. The light won't work and no heat comes out. Should I just get a new one?

Let me ask, What did the door have to do with it? :-) Have you chk'd the house circuit breakers. Are you sure someone didn't turn it off? Those units have timers on many models. Did it time out? Plug it in another receptacle and try it one more time before replacing it.They are also thermally protected to prevent overheating in case someone turns it to max near an open bedroom door and goes to sleep. Kidding, but the thermal safety is there If all considered and still inoperative, junk it and get a better one. Good Luck

My heater warms up then it trips out my electrics


Either you have to much on the circuit, like lamps, TV, and running,
or there is a problem with the heater and you should return it.

Try a bedroom outlet, make sure noting is on in all the bedrooms, or the kitchen if you have outlets above the counter, outlets above a kitchen counter are suppose to be on their own circuit.

If you try this and it trips the breaker, return the heater.

Will not turn on. Unit has been working great until tonight. Was on but now off and will not come on. Unpluged it for an hour but still not working.


This same thing happened to me, and yesterday as well no less. I've had mine for a 3-4 years. I think It had run out of oil, which is weird because I've had a Holmes heater for nearly 10 years and it still has plenty of oil left. If you shake it, can you hear the oil? I went and got another from Target last night (it was the coldest night of the year) and can hear the oil swishing around in it as I set it up. Hope it last longer than another 3-4 years or my next one will be a Holmes.

Just purchases a 1997 Ford Explorer AWD V8 and the heater isn't working. Put anti-freeze in it last night and it started to get warm. No such luck this morning, it's blowing cold air. The outside...


OK, recheck the anti-freeze level and fill if necessary. There may be a leak in the system.
If it is filled up to capacity (also check that the upper radiator hose is full of fluid by squeezing), then the next thing to check is the two heater hoses that enter the firewall for the heater core. If they aren't getting hot at normal operating temperature, the heater core is plugged up and will have to be flushed or replaced.

If the heater core hoses are hot, then a blend door problem exists for shuttling hot air from the heater core to the interior of the vehicle.

Good luck on this repair.

Hi i havent used my radiator for 2 years is it ok to use now in my 8 month olds bedroom? also bit of a smell coming from it cant remember if i had that before or not is this normal for these radiator?


I would think it would be fine in your childs bedroom. First i would give it a good cleaning, brush it off,vacumn of blow out with compressed air. Also I would use your heater for a day or two in open area such as living room before I would trust it. I would guess that the smell you are getting is dust and hair,lint etc. burning off. But of course we don't want to take chances with our children. My son and daughter in-law used a holmes unit in my grandsons bedroom for the last four years and have had no problems. Hope this helps. Thanks

Efficency with Oil Column heating


because it operates on room air temperature, if this is the only means of heat to this room, leaving it on would be more economical thus keeping the rise in air temp time less=less time it works hard to match what you desire. but if not only source of heat no. time to heat room would be almost the same thus you would save what you used during the day due to fluctuations in room temps between time your furnace would kick on and off.

Does it sound like oil bubbles? Sometimes when an oil heater is heating up you can hear the pop sound of the oil heating.
