Question about Lasko 5540 Ceramic Compact Heater

1 Answer

Absolutely no power to my Lasko 5540 heater

When I plugged in the heater I noticed that there was no power at all. I tried several outlets in the house and still nothing. I can not find any indication of it shorting out/burning out. Thanks

    Same problem, however I had the fused checked by an electrician and it tested ok. So that did not resolve my problem.

There is a thermal fuse in line with the power chord. Open your heater housing up and trace the power cord. It is located inside a white teflon sleeve. Locate the fuse and either replace it with the same value. Appliance repair shops will have them in stock. If you want heat right away, cut out the fuse and jumper the 2 wires together. Instant heat.

Hi, I have the Lasko Ceramic Elements heaters. When I plug it in, the light lights up to show it's plugged in, but when I try to press the POWER button turn it on, it beeps but does not do start heating...


If I am getting this right you just purchased this heater? I would return it and get another one. It sounds like the tip over switch is not made and will only show that power is getting to it but the tip switch is keeping it from heating.

You have too many things on the circuit you are on. Either move it to a different plug, or turn some things off. A plug in heater uses as much electricity as the breaker should carry if it is a 15 amp, like most are. Try to find a plug on a different circuit, or clear some things off of it.

Poping, smoking electric Lasko 5540 heater


It depends on where the smoke is coming from. If it's from the heating elements, it's normal as dust and residue burn off. If it is coming from the control section, it's bad and the heater should not be used.
