Separate the case and trace out the wiring you are looking for an over heat limit switch. These are usually at the top of the case. You should also go over the element with a volt ohm meter make sure it is good, once you locate the thermal overload check it with the volt ohm meter it should read closed or dead short. If it reads open here is your culprit. It has been my observation that replacement parts can generally cost as much as replacing the entire heater. These I can pick up all day long for $19.00 at Home Depot the call them milk house heaters. Good luck with the repair.

Replace it with any rated double throw double pole switch. Continuity check the switch first, to be sure it's the switch that's the problem.

Find tip-over switch on Lakewood Heater


lakewood makes several styles of heaters,if it is the steam looking version,i don't think it has a tip over switch,because it cant start a fire...the tip over switch version has the counter balance switch in the casing under the coil and fan area..to check to see if it is working ,just turn it on and tip it over ,try it a couple of directions,if it shuts off it works.its not a thermocouple...

My lakewood oil filled heater model 5600/7 just stopped working. It won't turn on..no lights. There is no history of tipping over.


The reason that it stopped is an open circuit. It is probably a blown thermal fuse. However, it could be any of the following if that is not the problem:

bad switch, broken or disconnected wire, burned open heater element, bad connections between terminals and wires, or between wire connectors and the wires within them.

If you take it apart, you will find the heat sensitive thermal fuse device under the heating elements, near the bottom of the unit. If the thermal fuse is good, it will appear as a short to an ohmmeter (zero ohms). If it is failed, it will appear as an open (infinite ohms).

The thermal fuse device can be replaced. Here is where to get one:

The thermal fuse may be this one, but check the temperature indication on yours first: Item#: TH-TF167C

Good luck.

Lakewood heater 792 will not work


The bottom switch is bad. Unplug bottom wires and touch them together, if heat and fan comes on your switch is bad.

Lakewood heater 792/AA Fan works and pushes warm air, but element/coils never heat up where heater actually gets hot.


sounds like a broken element or wire. with unit unplugged, using an ohm meter check all connections and check elements for resistance.

Lakewood 792/JR heater running w/o heat


Hi Spybotics. I have the same problem and I traced mine down to a burned out over-heat fuse link. Check out my recent post. My guess is that you are having the same problem as me. It's not hard to tell - just take off the rear panel and test the link (looks like a small resistor in line with the element) with an ohm meter. Open circuit means burned out fuse link. DO NOT bypass the link, as an extreme fire hazard will exist without it.
