Question about Lasko Ceramic Heater
I have a Lasko ceramic heater that keeps shutting down & when it does all the lights blink and 88 blinks where it shows the temperature. It's there something wrong? What should I do?

SOURCE: lasko heater shut down
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!

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.

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.

If its a central heating unit you should make sure the batteries in the thermostat are good and the fan switch is on auto. then you can open the cover to the heater and tap on the relay. that will usually shut it off if its just sticking. It could be a black box by itself or a box on the circuit board depending on the model
