SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Cannot get the heating element to turn off properly on Lasko 5620

From whatI have seen on base board heaters if I recall correctly, the thermostat may be sepperate. Usually thermostats on these have a round knob. 1 line goes to this and the other side of the thermostat goes to 1 end of th element and the othe line attaches to the other side of the element. Its possible you have the element wired in directky if it came without a thermostat and without instructions it may till be connected directly. You should have an L1 and L2 connection and hope there is a wire diagram on the cover.
THE reason these basebord heaters used to come without a thermostat is because they are (OR WERE)set up to add on additional heaters comming right on down the wall. At the last one you could tie in and get a correct rated thermostat installed in the center of the series.
Return to LOWES and ask them to remove the instructions and copy them for you from another like model. Or have them contact the manufacturer and request they fax a copy of instructions with a diagram. Also ask if the heater comes with a thermostat. It may stoill be sepperate in another kit.

SOURCE: yellow caution light

I also have the model 5620. with the yellow caution light on. After taking the unit completely apart I found 2 thermal fuses on the bottom of the unit(appox. size of a nickel). They are located under 'U" shaped brackets which are below the medal heating element. The thermal fuses do not reset. you could test them with a drip or two of souder or wire on the top - if you ran the heater this way it would be a safety problem as the fuse would be overridden. I am throwning mine away.

Cant get the heat to go past 71


Check your thermostat. Maybe it's cutting off ahead of the set temperature. May need recalibration or replacement.

Orange light came on


Hi,
The orange light is just an indicator light to show you that the heater is working...there is nothing wrong and nothing to worry about...

Heater thermostat kiks off aftre about 5 min.


Hi,
First check the wiring to make sure that there are no loose connections... also check the thermostat to make sure that the heat is not affesting it directly and that the sensing part of the thermostat is away from the elemnt enough to sense the ait temperature and not the element heat....
If all of that checks out then try to change the t-stat... it is bad...

Our Lasko 5620 has a digital control, but we can't set the temperature. It says at 76 degrees, no matter what we do. Hitting the control buttons does not work.


Based from your comments, it seems that you have a
defective digital control. Have a check up for this item.
It may need to be replaced. Hope this will help you.

Absolutely no power to my Lasko 5540 heater


There is a thermal fuse in line with the power chord. Open your heater housing up and trace the power cord. It is located inside a white teflon sleeve. Locate the fuse and either replace it with the same value. Appliance repair shops will have them in stock. If you want heat right away, cut out the fuse and jumper the 2 wires together. Instant heat.
