SOURCE: keeps shutting off
I have a LASKO 5565 model fan and had a similiar problem. Cleaned the whole unit, thinking it was tripping the safety breakers, and it still would turn on and off. The control console was completely unusable. So then I thought that it was maybe the squat switch located on the bottom of the unit. I quickly deduced that not to be the problem and continued following the wiring. Just above the fan there is a 1/2"X1/2" thermostat. Upon touching it I almost burned myself. For some reason the unit was grounding here and cause the thermostat to heat up and shut the unit off. I took the thermostat out of the equation and the unit works great.
CAUTION: If you pursue this action you must understand that you no longer have a thermostat and the unit is now simply just a heater. It will either be on at full blast heat or it will be off. Good luck.

SOURCE: control panel blinking
my heater did the same, very frustrating. i have solved this problem. i took off the plastic cover to expose the electronic circuit board and noticed that there was a white residue on the board. I wiped this clean with rubbing alcohol and put everything back. as of 3 weeks ago i have used the heater frequently as normal and not had any problems. chazdee
