Lakewood oil-filled heater not heating up

I recently discovered that my heater wasn't heating anything - the power lights remained on, but there was no heat coming from it. I've tried different outlets in my home but still no luck. It's freezing in my apartment - could it be the thermostat?

If you think the thermostat is bad, try an emery board between the contacts. They get dirty and don't work. Don't overdo it.

It is quite possibly the thermostat. Dont risk your health these heaters are not very expensive and I would suggest going to buy a new one from your local department store.

My Lakewood oil-filled electric radiator makes some crackling noises when first heating - is this normal?


Yes, it is normal. the sound is from the oil heating up and moving through the fins. It will stop after a few minute. After the heater is used for a few months the noise will stop altogether. j

My Lakewood heater turns on but will not produce heat. Any ideas as to what is wrong????


Same symptom on my oil-filled Lakewood model 5500. Used an ohmmeter to check it out and found that 1) the thermostat is defective and potentially a fire hazard due to intermittent operation. 2) Then I learned of reports about some Lakewood oil-filled heaters squirting hot oil and injuring people, and 3) the manufacturer subsequently going out of business. Three strikes and you're out.

I cut off my heater's power cord and threw the whole thing away, and recommend others to do the same.

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.
