Question about Lakewood Oil-Filled Electric Radiator Heater

1 Answer

I have an old Lakewood 7000/A Heater which has not been used in a very long time. When I plugged it in I can hear a popping noise that I think is the oil heating. Is there a danger in using the heater while it's making the popping noise. I don't remember it ever making the noise before when we used it.

This is a normal noise while the unit is initially warming up...it shouldn't be making this noise once it warms up though

Replacement wheel for Lakewood Heater Model 7101


I did the drill think once. but today when trying to repair an old Lakewood 7101, I removed the two screws holding the front cover in place (top and bottom). the cover slides down and out. and underneath I see a large plug that can be unscrewed to drain or fill the heater!

No I never had any luck and the parts likely 1/2 the cost or more of a new one at wal mart and the heat element would still be old too

Need new electric cord for model 7000/a lakewood heater oil filled


Depending on handy you are, the power cords for heaters can be replaced, but may require soldering or other electrical and mechanical skills. You MUST replace the cord with one that has the same amperage and heat ratings.....that goes for the plug too.

ROCKER SWITCH DIAGRAM


89106a6.jpg
On the top of the switch (inside the heater) there is a common connection.....even though it looks as if it is connected (electrically), it isn't electrically affected by the switch; it's just used as a post. It's just the place where the striped wire connects to the "common" point for the heater coils (they are in a parallel). Also, while you're in there you might want to put some electrical grease on the exposed conductors.....mine had quite a bit of corrosion (which was the reason for the failure). I had to replace 3 of the female connectors.
