SOURCE: the 900w on/off switch does not work. any

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.

SOURCE: Hi! My name is

If the switch lights do come on when the switches are activated then the only parts that might be failed are the resistors that heat the oil or the thermostat. You will have to remove the cover on the panel (held in there with clips that you must pry open) and, using a basic multimeter set on resistance, check the continuity of the resistors. If they are ok then the thermostat has failed and it's no longer passing the current. You can bypass it but you must make sure the radiator doesn't overheats - from now on you will have to use it only supervised. Or you could visit several repair shops and find out if they have replacement ones - it will cost you around $60 to replace it.

I replaced the switch on my heater with compatible rocker switch from ebay:

It works very well.

Duromax xp4000s only puts out 15amps at 3600rpm???? wont carry a 900watt micro wave???


That is double the amperage required to run a 900W oven so the problem could be that the unit isn't producing the correct voltage as to not carry the oven at 15 A the voltage will be under 60V

I have 2 led transforms connected to a toggle switch. Can I put a toggle dimmer 600W controlling these transforms?


That depends on several things. Some LED power supplies are not dimmable, and will flash instead of dim properly when used with a dimmer. Many will work just fine. There are also specialty dimmers that are designed to work with transformers, though I've not found them much different.

The rolling feet are missing. Any idea how to find replacements


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.

How can I find our what the controls mean, the dots on the 6500????


thegreyone_0.jpg I could not easily find an instruction sheet, but I believe that the top knob is the thermostat... rotate it clockwise for higher temperatures and counter-clockwise to lower the temperature. The lower knob controls the number of heating elements. The first dot/dash if for the 600W element only, the second longer dot/dash is for the 900W element only; and the longest dot/dash is to select both the heating elements giving 1500W total output power.
I hope this helps...

Installing The Subwoofers to the amp... etc.


You should go with a 4 guage power wire kit. If your amp is going in and out
at high volume than that is your problem. 8 guage will work but, if you want
the proper current which is your power from your battery, going to your amp
than I would recomend the 4 guage amp install kit or just the main power
wire coming from your battery. If you would like contact me and I will send you
to a very good sight with all the info you will ever need for car amplifire installation.
