Question about Lakewood Oil-Filled Electric Radiator Heater

1 Answer

Disposal of lakewood oil filled electric radiator (portable)

I live in austin, texas and nobody - not the city, not the manufacturer, not the landfill companies - seems to know how to dispose of these safely, or indeed whether they can be disposed of safely. hazardous waste won't even take it. they seem like a common product but their safe disposal is an area of almost universal ignorance. they are a sealed unit and cannot be emptied without rupturing or piercing the body. does anyone have any answers.

Take back to lowes or wallmart call a enviromental recycling company

    The Unit can be dismantled. Take off the controls and housing and there is a heating element that looks identical to the heating element on my electric water heater. It screws off with a large nut and the heating element comes out...and exposes the interior of the unit which probably has about a half gallon of Oil. Make sure the unit is turned so the oil doesn't leak out. Drain the Oil and recycle the steel radiator. I'm not sure what kind of oil it is but many automotive places will recyle auto oil. I've been looking into this.

How does one refill lakewood heater ?

These are sealed oil heaters and do not require refilling, if yours is leaking then it is bad and should be disposed of. They should not use oil or leak oil ever.

Reposting: I have a lakewood oil filled radiator heater that will NOT turn on. Is there someplace or something I can do to have it fixed?

Depending on its age, you can return it to the place of purchase. Because the cost of repair will almost certainly exceed the cost of replacement, it is not a practical option. If you have a friend who is comfortable with electrical systems, you could try that. There are a few brands of oil filled heater that have recalls. The consumer safety bureau or the manufacturer may have information about a recall on your product. This is a good time of year to purchase a new one as many stores are just starting sales on heating appliances. Farmerbear at FixYa
