How do I access the filter in a Lasko 5566 ceramic heater

I can't see an easy way to remove and clean the air filters in a Lasko 5566 tower ceramic heater, without taking the entire unit apart. There are no "doors", hinges, slots, etc. The filters are right behind a plastic faceplate which runs the height of the tall unit, and which appears to be permanently attached. Any ideas how I can access these filters? Or must I dis-assemble the entire unit?

The manual for the Lasko 5155 is available here: http://www.devicemanuals.com/productsupport/Lasko_5155_manual.html . You will need to review the heater to download the manual. Other Lasko manuals are available from the Lasko site. The current tower heaters have the manuals on their individual product pages. You can access the list here: http://www.laskoproducts.com/ceramic-tower-heaters/ . Other manuals can be accessed here: http://www.laskoproducts.com/?s=Manuals... .

I hope this helps.

My Lasko 5307 oscillating ceramic tower simply does not "turn on" .... what's up?


Electricity is not suitable for use by you....
Check power point with another appliance. Check heater switch, high temp, etc....

Requires a special security screwdriver. I modified a slim old screwdriver by filing a small V in the middle of the blade. You can also buy 1/4" driver bits at Harbor Freight, etc.

How to clean the intake filter


I clean mine like this, unplug the fan and head outside, I use compressed air and a blow gun. I blow the air thru the intake and then backwards thru the front heating elements and repeat until you have clean air in both directions. I average about five times both directions and I am good for the year. I have made a practice of cleaning it out in the fall of each year.

Won't turn on. It gave me a beep when I plugged


Have you cleaned the filter that's on the back? This has happened to me, and I just took the filter out and cleaned it, and it worked fine after.

Clean the filter : Lasko Model #5812


First make sure heater is unplugged. Next, on the side of the heater locate two holes (see image) these are what's keeping everything in front together. unscrewing these and genty pulling sides out lwill release the top filter and front where control knob is and bottom filter where the heated air comes out. Clean filter & re assemble.

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.
