Lasko 5365 heater making growling sound.

The heater is making a loud growling/grinding sound when turned on. Heats just fine. The sound is louder on high. When I run the heater on low, it makes the sound off and on then it no longer makes the sound after awhile. Thank you, Kristi

Sounds to me like you have a fan blade hitting something inside the unit, or the motor is going bad, thats the only moving parts to the unit unless it has a sweeping mode, moves from side to side, if it doesnt have that, then its your fan motor or blade, you probably need to replace the motor or the whole unit, as they are fairly inexspecive, but its your call, look inside the unit to see if anything is in there that might be making the noise as well, best of luck, hope that helped

My heater stopped as a blanket covered it by mistake


Hi,
after letting it cool down the heater should reset it's self and work again...
If it does not then it is no good anymore as the thermal switch is not replaceable...

Heater shows red ready button, but won't turn on. Any ideas? I've already unplugged, tried multiple outlets and vacuumed the heating elements.... ???? What next ????


Turn temperature setting all the way up.
If that does not fix, turn temperature setting all the way down, turn heater off, unplug for at least 10 minutes.

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.

Will not stay on for more than a minute, reachers 57 degrees and turns off, can not be turned on again.


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!
