I have a Lakewood 7096 heater. We purchased it used and got 8 to 10 years of service out of it. It was never heavily used while in our possession, just to heat the bathroom for showers.
The 900W switch quit working after used it and showered Sunday. The 600W switch still works fine, but the unit doesn't produce much heat at any speed.
After looking at various posts on fixya today, I decided to pull the pair of switches out. The 900W switch is burnt. The wire attaching to the 900W switch is burnt and bare!!! I don't know what happened. I would be scared to use it again, even if I replaced the switches and the bare wire. I don't know if it's even safe to use the 600W setting.
Anyway, I purchased a sunbeam radiator heater this morning. The ol Lakewood has the wheels you are missing. If were to come to an agreement on price, I would be happy to ship them to you. They are in good shape, just a little squeeky, which a little oil would fix.
Remove one phillips head screw that is located approximately 4 inches above the switch you are about to replace. The complete face of the heater can now be removed, then compress the four tabs on the back side of the switch to remove the switch through the cover.
You can go to the radio shack and purchase a universal switch to replace it.As long as the replacement switch will hold 900 watts or more(125volts)it will work.Take the switch with you.Replacement parts are almost impossible to find.Hopefully,this will help you.As the heaters go out,switch or thermostat,or element,I but a new one,I have been for a long time.I end up with extra parts to fix one or two,so I end up using the heaters longer than expected.Don`t buy the digital L E D versions,they won`t work right,and go out quickley. If I can help,let me know.I hope this is helpful.
On the top of the switch (inside the heater) there is a common connection.....even though it looks as if it is connected (electrically), it isn't electrically affected by the switch; it's just used as a post. It's just the place where the striped wire connects to the "common" point for the heater coils (they are in a parallel). Also, while you're in there you might want to put some electrical grease on the exposed conductors.....mine had quite a bit of corrosion (which was the reason for the failure). I had to replace 3 of the female connectors.
i went all over town looking for a switch. finally found two lighted switches at grainger carling technology part no. 1A824. ground down the outsides glued both together jumped across top and bottom terminal with copper wire and it seems to work fine now.only time will tell. i hate our throw away society which the junk imported in from china seems to foster.
First of all complaining to FixYa isn't going to accomplish anything. I doubt that the supplier of your device even knows about FixYa. Now on to your problem --- can you get me any numbers off the rocker switch? I'll do the research and get back to you. Use my original email address which can be found in my profile.
