Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I have an electric Lasko Heater -Model 5269 -Need a replacement part for a part inside the heater

Heater fell over and hit the floor. Afterwards the heater would not come on. You could something rolling around inside. Took it apart and a round metal part with a plastic around it. The plastic had broken off. The number and letters on the metal part had STC -00 on it. It looked like the plastic part that was still attached was connected to the wires. Need to see if I can replace the round metal part.

SOURCE: Electric baseboard heater

You need a meter, it will be hard without this! If you have 220v in the wall, then think of it like this; each wire is 120v. Test to each other, you get 220v. The thermostat is a double pole, you said. So think of it like this, its an adjustable temperature controlled switch that lets electricity through at the temp. you set it at. If you have 120v from one wire connected to one end of the element, and the other 120v connected to the other end of the element, then it will work. DO NOT CONNECT THE 120V TOGETHER. IT MUST GO THROUGH THE ELEMENT FIRST. The thermostat should be between the power from the wall and the element, to control the temperature.

SOURCE: Replaced mercury thermostat w/Honeywell CT87K - doesn't work!

You need a specific thermostat for a Wall Furnace it is a Millivolt Thermostat and not a 24v standard thermostat....usually it will work anyway however if the powerpile (generator produces millivolts from the pilot light) is weak it may not be producing enough...or the Pilot light may be dirty and lazy...won't produce enough millivolts ...or you can have bad or dirty contacts or connections....or a combination of any of the above.....a 24v Thermostat and particularly a non-mercury thermostat has too much resistance in it for a millivolt system....as your Wall Furnace (other than the fan) runs on less than 1 volt

SOURCE: Cost per hour to run Model # 5840 heater

take the wattage of the heater, divide it by 1000 then multiply that by your cost per KW/hr from your electric bill, then multiply that by the number of hours you operate the heater. That will give you the exact cost to operate at full heating per hour.

I have a Lasko 5141 Ceramic Electric Heater, and when I turn it on, I smell burning and the heater makes a whining noise. I've tried vacuuming it, should I try again or is there another step I should take?


You have an excess amount of lint buildup inside the ceramic element, you need to take the unit apart to clean the element. The fan housing covers the backside of the element and blows the air forward, over a period of time lint builds up.

You need a qualified person to take it apart safely and clean it. It takes a Special Chinese Triangle Bit screwdriver to remove the 2 tamper proof screws from the back. Purchased mine at mcmastercarr.com

Triangle Bits

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.

I have a ;asko 5141 model space heater and every time we plug it into a different outlet it melts the plug or the end of the plug on the heater. i've only had this heater for a hort time. what is the cause...


Have an electrician check the cord for a short circuit. It unit is under 3 years old it will be covered under Lasko's Warranty. Cord can be replaced, but it takes a special bit to take apart and know how to replace cord. You need a person you know who is Electrically and Mechanically capable for a safe repair.

I have a Lasko Model 5532 electric heater. It has suddenly started shutting off often. I run it through the reset procedure (unplug 5-10 minutes, then restart) and that gets it going again, but then it...


All of these space heaters have thermal protection units in them. They are safety that shuts the unit down if it starts to overheat.If your fan is operating, then it sounds like the thermal protection circuit is faulty, and you'll need to contact Lasko for a replacement. These units do not have parts that can be purchased due to their UL compliance. Check the fan though, it might be obstructed. I have seen that more than once....Rob

Lasko 5365 heater making growling sound.


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
