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.

SOURCE: Cannot get the heating element to turn off properly on Lasko 5620

From whatI have seen on base board heaters if I recall correctly, the thermostat may be sepperate. Usually thermostats on these have a round knob. 1 line goes to this and the other side of the thermostat goes to 1 end of th element and the othe line attaches to the other side of the element. Its possible you have the element wired in directky if it came without a thermostat and without instructions it may till be connected directly. You should have an L1 and L2 connection and hope there is a wire diagram on the cover.
THE reason these basebord heaters used to come without a thermostat is because they are (OR WERE)set up to add on additional heaters comming right on down the wall. At the last one you could tie in and get a correct rated thermostat installed in the center of the series.
Return to LOWES and ask them to remove the instructions and copy them for you from another like model. Or have them contact the manufacturer and request they fax a copy of instructions with a diagram. Also ask if the heater comes with a thermostat. It may stoill be sepperate in another kit.

Lasko 18" cyclone 1843 quit working is there a fuse


  • Lasko Cyclone fans have a thermal fuse (typically 130 degrees C) placed on the armature of the motor, connected between the input voltage line and the start capacitor. It is not user replaceable, since it is soldered, taped and attached to the armature with cable ties. When the motor overheats, the thermal fuse blows, primarily protecting against a fire hazard. Like most low cost Chinese manufactured fans, the motor uses low quality sintered bronze bushings instead of ball bearings to save a few pennies in cost. The bushing (each motor has 2) is surrounded by padding which is infused with lubricant, and the lubricant seeps through the bushing to lubricate the rotor shaft of the motor when it is operating. Unfortunately over time, the lubricant dries out or the bushings clog, causing the rotor friction to increase, resulting in the motor current increasing as it tries to maintain motor speed. This heats up the armature coils, causing the thermal fuse to eventually blow. While the thermal fuse can be replaced with some effort and the padding re-lubricated, eventually the same thing will happen because of the low quality bushings.

Lasko outdoor tower fan #4305 no electricity getting to it. Is there a fuze?


There is a thermal fuse on all fan motors. When the motor heats up too much, this thermal fuse blows up. You may replace the thermal fuse or bypass it entirely but you will need to open up the motor, trace the line where the fuse is connected, usually the thermal fuse is connected to the starting capacitor and the main supply line. If you're up to it, please let me know so I can guide you step by step. It's kinda hard to do. Most repair technicians will tell you to just replace the motor.

Cant get the heat to go past 71


Check your thermostat. Maybe it's cutting off ahead of the set temperature. May need recalibration or replacement.

1 Answer

Our Lasko 5620 has a digital control, but we can't set the temperature. It says at 76 degrees, no matter what we do. Hitting the control buttons does not work.


Based from your comments, it seems that you have a
defective digital control. Have a check up for this item.
It may need to be replaced. Hope this will help you.

Yellow caution light


I also have the model 5620. with the yellow caution light on. After taking the unit completely apart I found 2 thermal fuses on the bottom of the unit(appox. size of a nickel). They are located under 'U" shaped brackets which are below the medal heating element. The thermal fuses do not reset. you could test them with a drip or two of souder or wire on the top - if you ran the heater this way it would be a safety problem as the fuse would be overridden. I am throwning mine away.
