Question about Lasko Ceramic Heater
I have a Lasko electric space heater. It works great, except whenever you press a button on the unit or the remote, it makes a super loud beep. It is painfully loud and will wake up anyone in the house.
I'd like to disable the speaker. Has anyone had any luck doing this?
It is a Lasko model 6000.
I was cleaning out my Lasko ceramic heater 6000, looking for instructions on how to do so, and came across your comment. After I opened it up and cleaned everything out (really easy, no instructions needed, it is all obvious) I started thinking about how much I hate that beep as well. So I decided as long as I had it opened to try to disable it.
Well, I could tell from plugging and unplugging that it was (unfortunately) mounted on the under side of the green circuit board. You will have to unscrew the circuit board completely (all wires still attached) and (carefully!) move it so you can flip it upside down to get to the other side. Note: there were 7 screws to remove and 1 was under the motor and really hard to get to. The motor looked WAY too complicated to remove so I got the screw started just a little with a precision screw driver and turned it the rest of the way with needle nose pliers.
Once the circuit board is off, the beeper is a little black circular thing (about 1/2 inch in diameter) with a little hole in the middle. It has a serial number on it and a "+" symbol. It looks like it is built in two pieces (upper and lower), so I tried to carefully remove the upper piece with needle nose pliers while leaving the lower piece connected to the circuit board. Well, the whole thing ripped out! I thought two things: 1) It will never beep again, and 2) I hope this didn't break a circuit causing the whole thing to fail.
Well, I put the circuit board back on ( I left off the one difficult screw, as 6 of 7 is more than sufficient to hold it on). Put the whole unit back together, and . . . . IT WORKS FINE!!!!!

THANK YOU!!! I did the same and it worked! I've had this heater for 2-3 years. I removed the cap by wriggling it out and it popped off with no problems.
My fiance is a light sleeper and he wakes up before 3am, so I don't want to wake him up because I'm trying to stay warm. :/
The top "control board" had screws so I removed it and it was easier you access the circuit board screws.
Thanks so much again!

THANK YOU FOR THIS! We were using the heater in our baby's room, and the loud annoying beeps would wake our baby every time we turned it on/off/adjusted the temp while he was sleeping. I have a different model of the ceramic Lasko heater, but the instructions were adequate for me to find the speaker. I did have to purchase a specialty T10 Security screwdriver (bought it from iFixit.com) in order to remove the back of the unit and access the circuit board.
