Question about Lasko 5365 Ceramic Compact Heater

1 Answer

Unit shuts itself off within a few minutes.

It worked great until just recently. Now, it won't stay on for more than a minute or two. When it shuts itself off, the temperature display just keeps fading in and out, and none of the buttons work. Is there anything I can do, short of buying a new heater? Thanks.

. 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!

When I turn the engine off the engine cooling fan stays on and does not shut off


depending on the engine temperature the fan is supposed to remain on after you turn the engine off, until the engine reaches a preset cooler temperature. when it reaches cooler temperature usually within 5 minutes or so it should cut off... if you cut it off and it is running 30 minutes later.. then there is a problem with the fan relay or temperature sending unit.

I have a Frigidaire dehumidifer model FDL70S1 that wont stay running for more than 3 minutes and then it shuts the fan off, but still has power to the unit.


Hi lynn crisp, thanks for your post!

From my understanding you are having a challenging time with your Frigidaire dehumidifier shutting too quickly. It sounds like a possible problem with your sensor or control panel. Are you currently under warranty? I would contact your manufacturer for assistance to a proper resolution. -Matt

Bosch Axxis WTE86300US turns itself off after ten minutes, won't turn back on for a few minutes after that


I would bet you have a bad sensor. There are a couple of sensors that monitor heat. When it gets too hot they shut it down as a safety precaution. Once it is cool enough it will start up again.

My iphone 4 has been working great, just went to make a call and its dead. Won't turn on?


I am guessing that your phone probably shut itself down to prevent data loss. When was the last time you shut it off by holding the top power button until it says slide to power off and then powering it off? I may be wrong in this but,... Okay, so have the phone unplugged and I want you to press and hold both buttons at the same time, the Top Power and the Home Screen Button and just continue to hold them, sometimes even for like a minute but I'm guessing within like 30 seconds or so the Apple logo will appear then you can release the buttons. If this does work you can prevent this from happening again by power cycling your phone on a daily basis or at least every other day. :-) I hope it helps good luck.

My TV won't stay on until it's warm?


have your unit power supply check, maybe some cold solder or leaky capacitor is the culprit.

Unit shuts down after 25 minutes


I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

Oven turns off if too hot


There is a temperature switch that shuts the power down if the temperature goes too high. This is to prevent a fire if your thermostat sticks on. Sometimes the switch will become weak and open the circuit at too low of a temperature. Replacing the switch should solve your problem.

If you need more assistance, post a comment with the model and s/n of your stove.

Thanks,

Tim
