SOURCE: Lasko 5610 red caution light, no power

In the bottom of th e 5610 there are 2 automatic reset breakers. In betwene the two there is wire connecting them together. In the middle of this wire is a thermal resister and thats what repaired mine. Replace it and your heater will heat again.

Take the top off of the heater and and clean the nozzel orifice, while you have it apart wipe off the photo cell and clean and regap spark plug. The nozzel unscews and you can clean it with a bread tie.

After this clean or change the fuel filter in the tank, and finally check the pump pressure and make sure it is inline with the owner manual. This is assuming that it is firing to begin with

SOURCE: after the normal delay period, my heater ignites

flame sensor rod is probably not bad but just has a soot build up on it. take some steel wool or I use a soft brass brush and make the rod shine. DO NOT USE ANYTHING COARSE, if you scratch the rod it will rust, then it is bad

I've got a redcore infared heater that will put out heat for 4-6 seconds and then shut off and won't turn on for a while. Is this fixable?

there is a thermostat fitted to the electrical wires, this will be the problem, you can sometimes fix them buy putting the copper connection back to its original place, over time and short term use the bent and get stuck, it's like over heating. to stop this you make sure you don't have the thermostat set to low setting, were by its on for a few minutes then off again.

Have a Remington space heater, runs for approx. 10 min. then shuts off, then if unplugged or switch turned off, then it will start again for short period of time

There may be an overheating sensor that is causing shutdown after 10 minutes. After a cooling off period, it is ready to heat for another 10 minutes.

Why will it only stay on for short time?

Hello Dawn
The reviews on your heater cite similar problems. It is a ceramic heater which means it is electronically controlled.

Here are the reviews

This link is to the warranty department of the company themselves. Contact them and complain.

It's only normal, if the heater reached the temperature level you have it set on. More than likely, the heater over heat switch shut the heater down. If that's the case, the heating element may simply need cleaning.

You can accomplish this by turning the unit OFF & Unplugging it. The heater element is under the stove and can be cleaned with a vacuum that has a hose and brush attachment. Even a crevice tool will help. The heaters over a short period of time, can get clogged with dust, lint, pet hair, etc. Keeping them clean will lengthen the longevity of the heater.

Hope this helps you. Please let me know.

If the water heater shuts off again unplug the white the sensor plug underneath the thermostat (The black plastic box). Then plug it back in. This sensor plug has a black and white wire going to it and it's possible the plug could have been loose going into the thermostat..

My tv will turn on for about 15 seconds and then just shut off by itself? What could the problem be?

There is a fault inside it - most likely a capacitor is near it's end of life so when it heats it acts like a short and the protection from the power source is shutting it down. The tv must be opened and tested by a pro.

Furnace short cycles

You could have a bad overtemp sensor which is activating at too low a tempreture. They should not be that expensive. I would just replace it to eliminate the control if it is bad. It is a small metallic disc attached to the heat excanger. Has two wires coming off it. Approximately 1 inch in diameter. Usually on the front of the heat exchanger. It should have the tempreture that it activates at stamed on it. The temp is probably in celceus. Prior to replaceing it you could determine the activation temp and if you have a thermometer, or better yet an infared thermometer, check it while running to see what temp it activates at. If it is bad it will activate at too low a tempreture and should be replaced. Let me know if you need anymore help.

You may have a control board issue, there is no sensor that is IN the water tank your thermostat controller are exterior to the tank under the black foam looking piece which I think is where your trouble lies
