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: how do i prevent my lasko heater to keep raising the temperature? i can't seem to set it to stay on one!

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

How do I regulate temp on my lasko heater


My experience with Lasko heaters is with the small portable ceramic types. On mine there are two knobs. One is the "Power"; the fan symbol is for fan only, then (I) Low Power and (II) High Power 1500 watts. The other know is the thermostat from (-) to (+). Set the thermostat towards (+) until the temp in the room is the way you want it. Then turn the thermostat know towards (-) until the unit shuts off. This is now the temperature setting and the heater will cycle on and off to this setting. Hope this helps.

Lasko 5141 - I set the temp to hold @ 68 degrees at night but it seems to ignore the setting and gets into the high 70's. This is with the rotation switch on if that makes a difference. Any Help ? Thanks


Remember it is always colder at the floor level, the heater is pretty close to temp when it is above 40 degrees outside, but as the temperature gets colder outside so does the temperature at the floor level in your house because heat rises.

I use my house furnace thermostat mounted half way up the wall as a guide, When the temp outside is in the teens, I have seen as much difference between the floor temp on the heater and the wall to be 4-6 degrees different. So this means as the tempurature outside drops you need to regulate the thermostat on the heater downward to compensate for the colder floor temperatures.

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.

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.
