Portable Heater keeps turning off

I have a Lasko 675900 Stanley Heater about one year old. Used it fine until a couple of months ago when it started turning itself off about three minutes after plugging in. Tried plugging into a larger extension cord (15 amp) and then directly into the wall - same thing happened. Tried turning it off for 10 minutes and trying again and same thing happened. Does it sound like heater is defective or someting else?

    My Stanley model 675900 heater keeps shutting off. I've done the reset and it only lasts about 5 min or less and it shuts off again.

I just fixed my Stanley Lasko 675900 FOR GOOD and would like to tell the world how to fix it!


1. Remove the front plastic grill. The bolts are torx heads with a center pin. You may be able to find a torx head driver with the center pin but I improvised. I Used a dremel tool with a small rounded diamond bit to grind the center pins out of each screw so I can use a standard torx head driver on the screws.
2. Remove the heating element. These should be Phillips screws.
3. Blow out the dust from the back side of the heating element. (be careful with the fragile fins)
4. put it all back together and it should work just fine.
5. (optional at your own risk!) I believe the small gadget attached to the top of the heating element with the white wire is the limiter. You can use pliers to slide the unit out of the element and either move the unit further toward the center area, or cut the device out completely with wire cutters and then splice it back together. If you do this REMEMBER TO CLEAN THE BACK OF TH HEATING ELEMENT EVERY MONTH TO PREVENT A DUST FIRE!

I hope this work for you and good luck!

Sounds like the heater is going out on limit, have you looked at the blower in it ? is the screen clogged ? is the fan covered with dust or debrie ? has the unit ever been dropped ? periodic cleaning with an air nozzle is a good idea to help keep the unit running properly, if these are not the problem then you may have a faulty limit inside it, check to make sure all connections inside the unit are tight make sure there is nothing blocking air flow, if the problem still persists, you may want to see if you can get a replacement under warranty as defective, I hope one of the suggestions will help it to work, but these unit are notorious for being tempermental, hope this helped, let us know and leave a rating, thanks ,

I used a standard dremel tip for the screws with no problem - I first opened the whole unit up and cleaned the back of the heating element - it was furry with dust. Then I plugged it in and again, after about 30 seconds, it stopped. I reopened the side grills and vacuumed out both sides of the fan, and now it seems to be working. I think sucking air back through the unit, the heater element, and the fan must have gotten a lot of gunk out. These things should have much better air filters on them. It's been running for about 3 minutes now, more than it has in several years. Thanks for the help, everybody

We used a compressor with a blow gun attachment to clean the dust out. Heater works like new. They put those massively annoying screws on the unit to stop people from hacking the units and causing fires. What's brilliant is anyone remotely interested in hacking will figure out how to get around those screws as evidenced by the gentleman in possession of a diamond tip dremel tip

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.

Stanley heater wont come on


Keith here. HI, every thing that produces heat today, and most transformers, are protected with a thermal fuse. They are rated in degrees Celsius with "*** C". Some are visible and appear as a metal can about 3/16 X 3/4 inch with leads out both ends, one with a ceramic cone around the lead. But some are hidden in white braided tubing. An ohm meter will easily ferret out an open one. It is important to always replace one with exact or slightly LOWER temp rating. Of course, they can't be soldered, and if the one you are replacing is riveted in place, I have used short chrome, high- temp **** splices. I lost track of all of them I have replaced for folks.

My little heater keeps shutting off after a couple of minutes. I tried resetting it, and that gets it running again....for a couple of minutes.


The cleaning suggestion worked well. I cleaned mine with a blower nozzle on my air compressor. After blowing out all the dust and dirt from the front to the wind turbine out the sides. I saw a cloud of dust blow out of mine until it stopped blowing out dust. After that it seems to not be shutting off anymore. So Im thinking next time i won't take it apart just try using the compressor blower attachment again. Thinking ill get the same result. Also i changed the screws to a standard Philips head so disassembley in the future will be easier. Some of the torques screws had the stopper in the center of the screw that had to be drilled out. Must be a stopper for people that like to repair things themselves.

Heater used once 3 yrs ago. Now wont start.


When the heater hums is the fan turning. If it is I would add more Kerosene. There is no shut off but the Kerosene is sucked out a tube from the top of the tank. This tube does not reach quite all the way to the bottom of the tank. Your heater should hold about 9 gallons if it is empty. A couple of gallons would give it plenty to run though. Let me know.

I believe the thermostat is going out: it heats for a short while and then needs to cool down before restarting.
