Question about Lasko 5132 Ceramic Compact Heater

1 Answer

Blinking lights. Shuts off.

We have a Lasko 5132 Ceramic Tower Heater. We plug it in and after about 5 seconds, it shuts down and the low and high lights just blink. I have tried the reset (unplug and wait and try again) and it does the same thing. Last time we left it unplugged for 8 hours or so and it still does the same thing. Any help would be great.

Hello, Mne was also shutting down. Turns out that is was clogged with dust, therefore overheating and turning it self off. If you're handy, you may want to open the heater and dust it off with a can of compressed air. 
Worked for me.

How do I regulate temp on my lasko heater


My experience with Lasko heaters is with the small portable ceramic types. On mine there are two knobs. One is the "Power"; the fan symbol is for fan only, then (I) Low Power and (II) High Power 1500 watts. The other know is the thermostat from (-) to (+). Set the thermostat towards (+) until the temp in the room is the way you want it. Then turn the thermostat know towards (-) until the unit shuts off. This is now the temperature setting and the heater will cycle on and off to this setting. Hope this helps.

Mine lasko 5132 is shutt off 5 or 10 mts after tunr on i clened but is the same problem


Hi, I fixed mine. Spread the word far to everyone that has one. Borrowed an air blower (the kind used to blow away leaves etc), and just blew it inside the cracks and back end of the heater, got all the dust out. Previous reports that the sensor was probably being blocked with dust is correct. Thing has been running more powerfully and doesn't shut off like it did previously. So, just take something with high air pressure, and get all the junk out. No need to even disassemble.

I have a lasko tower ceramic heater that keeps shutting down.


mine does the same thing every year. I just clean out the dust from the vents on the back of the heater so the heater can breath otherwise it could get too hot and the safety fetcher kick in and makes the heater stop working.

There was a recall on this model and it was deemed a fire hazard as the plug can overheat at the base.

Try taking a can of compressed air and spray in the vents in the front and the back of the heater. The heater has a sensor that gets dusty and causes it to shutoff to prevent overheating.

The heater should function properly once the dust is blown off the sensor.

Good luck!
