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.

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.
