Pedastal ceramic heater 5565 shuts off after about 5 minutes willl not turn back on

    i have a 5566 that wouldn't turn on, and i found this thread when doing a search. i couldn't dismantle my unit because of the few triangle (or whatever) screws, and so i'm really glad i didn't start dismantling before reading about the weird screws or i would have wasted my time. instead, i just used the vacuum hose and sucked out whatever dust on the front of the heater and the back. and just that little effort made it work again-- no dismantling. before i read about all this i had no idea that dust was even the problem. so that was helpful. and knowing about the weird screws, which i already mentioned. good luck. PS if you have my model you might want to know it was recalled for fire hazard problems. i had no idea but found that out when typing 'lasko 5566' into google.

I have model 5532, but I think they all have the same problem. There seems to be a safety device in the ceramic heater that turns off if it gets too hot. It "remembers" when this happens as well and will shut off until it is unplugged for 10-15 minutes.

This happens on even lightly used heaters if used in dusty conditions. Dust builds up behind the ceramic heater and the lack of flow causes it to overheat. The unit must be dismantled and the dust brushed/vacuumed out. The good news is that not only will the heater work again, but it will have better airflow too!

To do this, tech support and other people say to "clean the rear grill", but my rear was not dirty. The front grill had some dust that I vacuumed clean, but did not help. In my unit there are no filters before the air goes through the heater element. The problem is in the center of the heater. Taking out the internal fan (four screws on the sides of the squirrel fan box), I could see that the radiator was over half covered in dust. I cleaned that dust out using a shop vac and the problem went away.

Opening the heater was a little tricky, two of the screws were triangle head screws. Once inside, however, it is a simple proceedure to remove the fan. Of course, you should unplug the heater and wait a while before opening it up to make sure there are no electrical charges stored in the unit.
