There really isn't anyway to give a difinitive answer to your problem. it requires some trouble shooting. Did you blow the breaker on the circuit feeding the outlet you had your heater plugged into? Is there a power indicator light on your heater? If so, when the dog tipped the heater over was it still working (ON)? If no indicator the problem gets more tedious and techy.

Oil heaters are great and simply designed. They are closed systems with heating elements that connect to the other end of the wire that plugs into your wall. The switch is in between the two to allow current to pass or not. If any of those connections was shaken loose by the fall it would cause your heater to malfunction. That's something you (or a service person) can only verify by opening the unit up. Hope this has helped...:-)

I dusted the bottom of my heater and now the alarm light comes on and the heater want come on.

unplug it and leave it unplugged for over 24 hours then try plugging it in again. if that doesn't do anything then you have knocked off, broken or damaged a sensor that allows the heater to function properly.

It got knocked over by the dog and now will not turn on.

I am not familiar with this make. However, all electcric heaters have a tip over safety switch on them somewhere. You will have to find it . I would look on the bottom for a plunger type switch, though it may be inside. I would expect that if it is otherwise undamaged, the switch should reset automatically. You may need to replace the switch if it is damaged.

Warning ... do not try to go around this safety device.

The heater is turned on. All lights are on. The fan isn't running. No heat is coming out. It was working earlier in the day.

did it get set on its side, there is a saftey switch inside to kickout the heating element if its knocked over, unplug it, pick it up and turn it around at different angles, return upright, shake gently, plug in and see if it puts out heat

We were away for a month we got home 2 days ago our friends put the heating on for a few hours,but yesterday the rads that were hot yesterday arent warming up today nor the upstairs ones,we wondered if...

drain your system and check all your valves,if in dout get an engineer out,dont risk it.
refill the system and put it on low.
more likely you will have lying sludge and you will need a flush.

When I get a response from Honeywell I will share with the world :(~

Laser 56 EE6

EE 6 happens for several reasons. Most likely in your case when the stove runs for a while after you turn it back on, the code is due to and over heat. The circulating fan and cover need to be spotless. If they are then the code is due to low fuel, no fuel or dirty filte on tankor stove.

Heater turns on, but intermittenly

Turn the power to the furnace off and then back on and see if it resets. If not you may have a bad ignitor or dirty sensor.
Hope this helps.

Heater stopped working suddenly

In the past I have nothing but problems with DeLonghi heaters. I replaced them with Pelonis heaters and have had no problems since. Pelonis heaters are availible from Home Depot at a very reasonable price. This is based on my experience only. Hope it helps.

Lasko heater model 5620

Underneath the heater element are two thermostats that are run in series with each other. Inside the wire that connects them is a thermal fuse that opened up. Replacing the fuse corrected the problem.
