Question about Lakewood Heating & Cooling

Open Question

Model # PH-10 - It runs for just a few minutes, then the caution light comes on and it quits. I turn it off, let it cool, then the process is repeated. Can anything be done or should I just replace it?

SOURCE: The Caution Light ?

to be absolutely certain what is turning on the caution light I'd have to see a circuit diagram on the heater. what it may be is that the air path is obstructed by something, the element is reaching too high a temperature and shutting off, if it has a fan, the bearings might be dry - hey! don't ever use wd-40 for lubing motors. use a light machine oil. the bearings in most of these heaters are oil-lite - sintered bronze. the material is porous enough to pass oil to the bearing surfaces and is free floating in their mounts.

SOURCE: won't heat

Is there a thermostat? where are you from and do you understand electrics? do you have a volt meter?

SOURCE: red caution light

The red light is in conjunction with a safety. This is there in case something goes wrong, the heater doesn't overheat and possibly catch fire. If its not getting too hot, and its sounds like its not. The safety needs to be replaced. It will be a little disc shaped thing with 2 wires connected to it. If this heater also has a tip over safety, there also may be some type of mercury switch too. If you are so inclined, when you find the safety disc it should have some numbers on it. This indicates the temperature it is made to turn off at. After removing it, connect the 2 wires together and turn the unit on with a thermometer in the spot where the disc was. If the temp. doesn't go higher than the #'s on the disc after 45 seconds like you said, then you know positively that is the problem. If it gets hotter very fast, then the elements need to be looked at for defects. If there are no numbers on the disc or you cant find a replacement, then it may just be easier to buy a new heater.

SOURCE: heater comes on fine runs

Are you using old fuel from last year? If so, drain/clean tank. Check/replace fuel filter. Refuel with fresh fuel & test again.

SOURCE: I have a coleman evcon

If the thermostat is ok which it probably is then your sequencer is most likely stuck i would say. You could verify that by removing 24 volts to the sequencer to see if it will shut down the heater
themobilian_598.jpg When low voltage from the thermostat is applied at the base of this sequencer it heats a bi-metal and turns on each coil and fan in a sequence that will insure the breaker don't throw from the power surge AND warm air comes out the vents when that fan comes on. I would start there.

I want to know that on my washing machine lg-80BKF21P model the time(min) 10 minutes was remaining and the washing process is done,it ends but after drying all is done but 10 minutes were remaining and...


tumble driers and combination washer driers have a 10 minute safety margin, where the heat fior drying is dispersed, to avoid people grabbing very hot clothing.. especially if it is not quite dry as this would make them, hotter to the touch.
Tumble driers usually continue to tumble, but blow cool air through the clothes to get rid of the heat, before stopping.

Outside unit starts but stops running in a few minutes. The rest of the a/c seems to be fine but doesn't cool


there could be quite a few problems with it. either it has something to do with the high or low safety pressure switches. Or you have a low voltage issue-not getting enough low voltage power to the coil of the contactor. how long do you wait after you turn the unit on? there is a 5 to 10 minute delay in the control board to keep the compressor from short cycling. meaning to keep the compressor from turning off then on again right away. short cycling a compressor too much will ruin it. There also could be an issue with the delay board it self. Or its a heat pump it could be an issue with the defrost board or the defrost sensor. I have even seen it to have a short in the wires of the coil of the contactor. But when that happens it will burn out the transformer or the low voltage fuse of the transformer or on the control board.

have you got it figured out already? If not can you give me more info on what it does? Or if it ever comes on after you wait at least ten minutes. Can you hear the hum the coil of the contactor makes when it is calling for the cooling. you might even have a problem with the contacts of the contactor not getting the proper power thru it to turn or keep the unit on.


Like I said there could be quite a few different possible issues with it to not stay on.

Maytag MZD2766GES refrigerator quit cooling, both sides. Noticed frosting on freezer contents, and next day the ice maker ice was melting and running on the floor. We can hear a clicking every 5-10 minutes...

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Remove the cardboard backing from the back bottom to access the compressor area.

Refrigerator model 309YBT quit working on Friday


Good day,
You did not say if it was running or not.
If not running at all, then it may be the cold control, (thermostat) that has failed. You can remove it, jump the 2 wires going to it, and see if it runs and cools.
If so, you may be able to contact your local appliance parts house for a replacement.
However, if running and not cooling, then 2 options.
1. If under 5 years, sealed system should be under warrant. Call your selling dealer for details.'
2. If over 5 years, not price effective.

My tv turns on properly but after a few minutes it goes blank


you are having a heat related issue and the component or parts are failing. using a hair dryer blowing into back of set will make it black out and a portable fan should cool it enough to come back on. unless you know a good cheap tech, repairs are costly. i left the business when t.v' s became disposable.

Cooling fan won't come on unless you turn the a/c on, then i turn the a/c off the cooling fan cycles normaly but will not cycle back on.


the fan turn on point on this model comes on at a very high temp gauge reading..not far from red or about 3/4 ways up...the engine will run quite a while before reaching this level. It should never go into the red which indicates problems but the design of the system gets it uncomfortably close. I've seen these needing to idle for 10 mins or so before the engine temp reaches the fan turn on point.One good thing about this design is when the fan does come on ,one should see immediate and noticeable drop below half in just a minute or two which indicates a good operating cooling system.

Lasko heater model 5620


Underneath the heater element are two thermostats that are run in series with each other. Inside the wire that connects them is a thermal fuse that opened up. Replacing the fuse corrected the problem.
