Question about Lakewood LAKQTV22 Utility Heater

1 Answer

Power light comes on but it doesn't run

I bought this heater at the beginning of winter. We have used it in our basement regularly. I went to turn it on the other night and nothing happened.
The elements didn't heat up, the fan didn't come on. Its just dead. The power light comes on. I have no idea what to do. I threw away the box and can't find the information/direction guides. I no longer have the receipt any more either. I'm frustrated because it should of lasted longer than this. Any suggestions?

You need to trace the path of electricity. With it unplugged, remove the cover and look at the wiring from the power light on, Its possible that a wire burnt off, you will be able to see it easily if so. If its an internal short, like inside the thermostat or power switch, then you need a meter to accurately find the problem, or change parts and hope to get lucky.

The heater won't stay powered on


Locate the flame sensor (connected only to one wire) and remove it. Some people use fine sandpaper, I use WD-40 to clean it. And I do this every year at the beginning of Winter. Good luck!

My error is ee88, how low should i set the temp in my basement, i've been setting it at 54 i think it has to be atleast 56 degrees


Normally, the air temp in a basement doesn't change more than 10 degrees throughout the year (Unless, you live in an extremely cold environment). If your just trying to knock the chill off during the winter and keep pipes from freezing 55 degrees is adequate.

Is it safe to use in th basement


I grew up working for my electrical contractor father and we had kerosene heaters such as you have. Another thing, these units must burn kerosene, do NOT use diesel fuel or any other fuel in these heaters, it will not burn cleanly and some fuels might explode. We always used these heaters in a building in winter that was being constructed. By this I mean that there was always plenty of ventilation. We ALWAYS had enough air movement through the buildings to prevent CO poisoning. This is why I will advise you NOT to use this style of heater without there being a way for the fumes to exhaust out of the building. CO (carbon monoxide) bonds faster with your hemoglobin than oxygen does and you can DIE from this. CO poisoning takes months to get out of your system.
So, with a sealed building, I would say NO do NOT use this in your basement.

This will be our third winter in our home, and for some reason this years when we run the heater it smells. The smell is similar to a stinky bathroom odor (that's the best way I can describe it). I...


Contact your Gas company tell them you have a foul smell coming in when you turn on the heater. They typically wont charge for a technician to come out and inspect the heater for you.

Can you use diesel instead of kerosene in ready heaters?


No - diesel fuel is NOT the same as kerosene. Kerosene is #1, regular diesel is #2. They are not interchangeable.

Won't light


Are the ignitors intact? In other words, does the element make a loop back to the ceramic portion. The purpose of the LED is to notify the user of a defective ignitor. The other possibility is a bad control board.

If the ignitor is intact, but no power coming from the board (ignitor only glows for 5 seconds), then the board is bad or the fuse is blown. You might want to test the photocell while you are at it.

You will need to locate the correct model numbers to order the correct parts. "170T" & "125T" are only part of the correct model designation.

Post back if you have further questions.

Rinnai Tankless Water Heater


Question, is there any other equipment that uses propane? You indicate that the problem started after a delivery of propane after running out. If so, I suspect a blockage in either the gas train or the rinnai itself. If tou have the temperature control that regulates the water temperature, you can recall error codes to pinpoint the issue. They are optional equipment so if you can wire one in or ask your propane gas supplier if their service department has one, it will aide in the diagnosis.
