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!

Rheen PVW50 Hot Water Heater Making Buzzing Noise and Doesn't Light


Why is it always Rheem problems?
Every water heater problem is Rheem.
And Rheem doesn't post any service manuals, like the other two big manufacturers, AO Smith-American, and Bradford White.

Copy following link for troubleshoot by gas control valve.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

Scroll up and find pressure switch heading among links.

You can install gas control valve yourself.

Id try raising the chimney until you can get the smoke from a piece of paper to get sucked up under the draft hood. I believe theres a different problem then a cold pipe.raising the chim.might not be the answer.

To check to see if it is a bad element - turn the power off again and use a multimeter to check continuity (Ohms) in each element. It is not uncommon to have one element fail. Replacing an element is "elementary" :), if you have some mechanical aptitude. Just be sure and drain the tank to below the level of the failed element. Easier if it is the upper element of course. Again - be sure the power is OFF - check it with your meter before you begin and you may even want to lock out the breaker if there is any possibility of someone mistakenly turning it back on.

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.

The service to your basement needs to be upgraded if you are going to run the heater and other electrical units. I would guess that you have a 15 amp line and need to upgrade it up to at least a 20 amp and with a 12 gauge grounded line. In the short term you may be able to get by using a heater that draws fewer amps.
This definitely sounds like your need to consult an electrician.

2006 Dodge Durango Oil light comes on


It might be faulty oil pressure sensor or bad oil pump, but might be adressed to recent oil change. Sometimes oil get viscouse in winter and cause oil light to come on. For winter the recommended one is 5W-30
Oil light should come on for less then a second during starting the car. If it comes longer or when you push the brake it might be the sign of bad oil (sometimes), faulty oil pressure sensor (mosty), bad oil pump (often) or internal engine problem (very rare).
Good Luck
