Question about Lakewood Oil-Filled Electric Radiator Heater
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.
