The contact are just a set of points. If you can remove them, file or sand, or whatever will do the job, a little on the place where the contacts touch. Usually that's all it takes. Make sure when the switch is turned on the lever/spring assembly moves and at least tries to make them touch. I don't really see a problem with directly wiring the fan. The only drawback is there is no real control except pulling the plug.

look for the power rating of your heater (usually it is in Watts (W) and convert it to kilo Watts (kW) unit by diving it by 1000).

kW = W / 1000.

now divide the kW by hour many hours your planning to operate your unit.

power consumption = kW/operating hours

when you get your power consumption value then multiply it with the power cost (you can find it usually in your bill).

cost to operate = power consumption x power cost.

Sounds like the ceramic heater has lost it's ability to heat completely. In other words, it doesn't peak any more.

Can it be repaired? Possibly, but finding the part(s) may prove difficult. However, if you can safely disassemble the heater, I would recommend that you try cleaning the interior with a can of compressed air that has a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with). It may simply be a case that it's clogged with dust and lint. Try not to disturb any of the electrical parts when you do this.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

now divide the kW by hour many hours your planning to operate your unit.

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.

It makes a lot of noise and its dirty inside. I just wanted to know the best way to clean it


use a compressor and a blow gun attachment blow the air thru the fan opening then back thru the heating elements do this several times back and fort until you get no more dust from the heating elements. I have done this on my own heater and it works just fine. Try this and you will find yourself cleaning the heaters each year this way with out taking them apart.

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.

Have a lasko ceramic element heater


just wanted to say that I am having the same problem.  I turn it on and it stops working.  When I push the power, it only lights up for a second and beeps and then goes off.  Is there a solution to this yet? I think the company owes us an explanation.  I have already tried to plug it in to different outlets and still get the same results.
