My Lakewood 792/JR space heater simply stopped working...

My Lakewood 792/JR simply stopped working. I opened it up, cleaned out most of the accumulated fuzz, and used the multimeter to find out how far juice was getting - where it stopped. I found that juice is not getting across a 'resistor' sort of device that jumps across two of the heater coil spacer legs. I need to know what this device really is, its value, and where I might find a replacement. I will solder it in place myself - that will probably fix the problem. Thanks!

SOURCE: Lakewood 792/JR heater running w/o heat

Hi Spybotics. I have the same problem and I traced mine down to a burned out over-heat fuse link. Check out my recent post. My guess is that you are having the same problem as me. It's not hard to tell - just take off the rear panel and test the link (looks like a small resistor in line with the element) with an ohm meter. Open circuit means burned out fuse link. DO NOT bypass the link, as an extreme fire hazard will exist without it.

SOURCE: need help with fixing my lakewood floor fan.

try cleaning it and put oil especially at the base of the shaft.then try wiggling the shaft for bushing tolerance.if you feel the shaft wiggles to wide, then you'll need to replace the bushing and the shaft.but before anything else check the thermal fuse.it is found on the motor itself or try to borrow a tester with resistance measurement to check for continuity of the winding by connecting the probes with the plug, one each terminal.then turn the fan on.the pointer should move if its ok, unless burn out.if not.then the thermal fuse blow-out.

The switch 750/1500 watt doesn't work


Replace it with any rated double throw double pole switch. Continuity check the switch first, to be sure it's the switch that's the problem.

Lakewood Model 792/A My heater has stopped working. The light indicates that it is receiving power. I checked the tip switch to see if stuck open. OK Next step please? Jeff


Separate the case and trace out the wiring you are looking for an over heat limit switch. These are usually at the top of the case. You should also go over the element with a volt ohm meter make sure it is good, once you locate the thermal overload check it with the volt ohm meter it should read closed or dead short. If it reads open here is your culprit. It has been my observation that replacement parts can generally cost as much as replacing the entire heater. These I can pick up all day long for $19.00 at Home Depot the call them milk house heaters. Good luck with the repair.

Hello, I have a Lakewood space heater, Model # 792/JR, and one of my kids tried to dry her shirt by placing it over the heater and now it comes on but doesnt heat up. Can this be fixed?


The heater "over-heated". It's supposed to have a safety cut-out. The question is, can it reset itself? If there is no manual reset button on it, leave it unplugged for 30 minutes or so. If it still doesn't work, spend $20 on a new one.
