Question about Lasko 5132 Ceramic Compact Heater
Heater will not turn on, acts as if it isn't getting any power. Have unplugged, let it sit and plugged back in. Just will not work at all.
SOURCE: Blinking lights. Shuts off.
Hello, Mne was also shutting down. Turns out that is was clogged with dust, therefore overheating and turning it self off.
If you're handy, you may want to open the heater and dust it off with a can of compressed air.
Worked for me.

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.

The 5840 has a problem with dust getting on the heater element and turning itself off after 2 minutes running. HERE IS THE FIX. Unplug the unit from the AC outlet, Then using a can of dusting air ( the kind you use to clean a computer key board) aim the compressed air INTO the middle louver of the upper adjustable heater vent and blow out the dust that has gotten on the heater element. ( You are actually blowing into the unit, clearing off the lint/dust that has gotten on the backside of the heater element that you can not see without openning the entire case).You can see the front of the heater element inside the louvers, It's the shinny metal part that looks like a small radiator.It sits behind the middle louver. After blowing out the dust, shake the entire unit to allow the dust to settle to the bottom of the case. Using a vacum cleaner try to vacum out any dust from the LOWER FRONT intake. Once the dust has been blown OFF the heater element, the unit will work just as new and not shut itself 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.
