Question about Lasko 5610 Baseboard Heater
My Lasko space heater's red "caution" light is on, and the heater no longer heats. What exactly is the message it's sending me? Element shorted out, switch not functioning, insufficient voltage? ls there anyway to reset it?
The thermal resister between the two reset breakers on the bottom is what the problem with mine was

In the bottom of th e 5610 there are 2 automatic reset breakers. In betwene the two there is wire connecting them together. In the middle of this wire is a thermal resister and thats what repaired mine. Replace it and your heater will heat again.

The caution light is telling you something is wrong. most wired baseboard heaters have a hi limit cutout that may be bad. it is connected into the heater circuit as a safety device. you could jump out this element to test this theory. if the element is shorted, certainly it would blow a fuse or circuit breaker. if the element is open it won't heat at all. you need to take it apart and use a test meter to troubleshoot it.
