Help! Dog Bit Through Electrical cord on Lakewood 2727. How to replace cord???

My dog ate right through the black cord...directly to the wires, and frayed them. You can see the metal wires all exposed and frayed. (Luckily it was unplugged when this happened).

How do I replace that cord? I put electrical tape around it (the black colored elec tape), but I don't think that's a good idea (particularly since the wires are frayed and exposed).

SO... either I throw it away and buy another one. OR, where/how can I replace the cord. The cord is not easily removed from the unit itself. What do I do???

Another option for you would be to use crimp on terminal connectors(**** connectors) you may purchase these from most hardware stores. Even using these I would still tape around the outside to ensure a good insulating surface.

Hi there my dog chew the eletric cord on my honeywell hz-341bl heater. what kind of cord should i use. thanks.

If you look at the cord it should tell you what kind of wire it is....... If not most of the little heater use 16ga stranded wire rated for 105degree C at 300 volts.

Dog chewed cord in half

Yes. Just take the plug to your local hardware store so they can match it up. It is important to get the proper size wire for proper operation and for safety. :-)

It got knocked over by the dog and now will not turn on.

I am not familiar with this make. However, all electcric heaters have a tip over safety switch on them somewhere. You will have to find it . I would look on the bottom for a plunger type switch, though it may be inside. I would expect that if it is otherwise undamaged, the switch should reset automatically. You may need to replace the switch if it is damaged.

Warning ... do not try to go around this safety device.

How/where can I get the power cord replaced? The dog chewed through the existing one

Any hardware store should sell 3 core wire flex for cable replacement.
Make sure it is at least 2.5mm squared cable as this is for a heater.
You will probably need a new plug too, as the existing one is probably moulded.

Connections inside the heater may be crimped Ring terminals. These are available from auto shops, and must use crimp pliars to connect them.

Mark the heater connections before removing the wires, and make sure the earth wire is connected securely.

Lakewood heater 7101 schematic

The power cord goes the switch terminal 1 and 3.
Terminal 2 must be the opposite of terminal 1, such that when switched on, 1 & 2 connects. Terminal 4 must be the opposite of terminal 3, such that 3 & 4 connects.
Under this setup, you may connect red to terminal 2
and black to terminal 4.
Be sure of the 1 & 2 pair, as well as the 3 & 4 pair.
then, connect the red and black wires.
Hope this will help you.

My dog just ate the male plug end of of the heater. which is neg/pos on both the wires and plug. one wire has the gauge size imprinted on to it.

White or red is the positive side while black is neutral.
The wider slot on the plug is used for neutral.

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.

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.
