Question about Lasko Ceramic Heater

Open Question

Constant Rotation I bought a Lasko 360 stand up rotating heater from Lowes in October. I brought it home and it worked fine for a little while (meaning I could make it rotate 360, 180 and 90 degrees or stay still). Suddenly it stopped being able to be adjusted and only spins 360. When I set it on 90, 180 or 360 it appears on the display like it is doing the correct thing (even though it isn't) but when I set it to stationary it blinks.

    I have the same problem. It worked for a month, then reverted to 360-only operation. Lasko says they will replace it. I think I'll return it to Lowe's and get one with limited rotation.

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!

I just bought the Lasko model number 6221 and there are no instructions. Should I take it back (there were not anymore of this model) or can I get instructions?


Here's a link to a Lasko page where you can download an Owners Manual. Unfortunately, the link from that page no longer works, However, there is a 800 number for customer service. They can provide you with the Owners Manual. Hope this helped you.

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 got a 5135 last season plugged it up this season and it worked fine. I took it on my mobile home we have a generator 120 v, had a power shutdown and now when I plug it itup no power. I took it back...


It si very likely that the control board has been damaged by the power surge. There may well be a fuse on that board which can be replaced but the electronics could be damaged. Ask a competent electrical expert to check the control board and fuses You can email Lasko here producthelp@laskoproducts.com to see if they can help. There is a power cutout in the heater to prevent damage but it should reset after unplugging for 10 mins. Check all fuses
By the way it is never a good idea to put your contact details online so that they are publicly viewable. Please rate my reply thank you

Lasko heater beeps too LOUD


I was cleaning out my Lasko ceramic heater 6000, looking for instructions on how to do so, and came across your comment. After I opened it up and cleaned everything out (really easy, no instructions needed, it is all obvious) I started thinking about how much I hate that beep as well. So I decided as long as I had it opened to try to disable it.
Well, I could tell from plugging and unplugging that it was (unfortunately) mounted on the under side of the green circuit board. You will have to unscrew the circuit board completely (all wires still attached) and (carefully!) move it so you can flip it upside down to get to the other side. Note: there were 7 screws to remove and 1 was under the motor and really hard to get to. The motor looked WAY too complicated to remove so I got the screw started just a little with a precision screw driver and turned it the rest of the way with needle nose pliers.
Once the circuit board is off, the beeper is a little black circular thing (about 1/2 inch in diameter) with a little hole in the middle. It has a serial number on it and a "+" symbol. It looks like it is built in two pieces (upper and lower), so I tried to carefully remove the upper piece with needle nose pliers while leaving the lower piece connected to the circuit board. Well, the whole thing ripped out! I thought two things: 1) It will never beep again, and 2) I hope this didn't break a circuit causing the whole thing to fail.
Well, I put the circuit board back on ( I left off the one difficult screw, as 6 of 7 is more than sufficient to hold it on). Put the whole unit back together, and . . . . IT WORKS FINE!!!!!
Good luck!

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.
