You have to cut the blue wire, WAIT NO, the red wire. No the blue wire, yes cut the blue wire. Phew that was close. (How the hell is anyone going to know the answer this question? you took the think apart so you can see what the wires are for)
At least for the Model 5165, the "88" means there is a circuit error -- probably applies to other models as well. First, call Lasko Customer Service 1-800-233-0268 (M-F, 8AM-5PM, EST). Have your receipt ready. Lasko will ask for a engraved number at the bottom of the heater, may have to look a few times to see it, normally about the serial number. Hope this helps!
the caution light is telling you something is wrong. most wired baseboard heaters have a hi limit cutout that may be bad. it is connected into the heater circuit as a safety device. you could jump out this element to test this theory. if the element is shorted, certainly it would blow a fuse or circuit breaker. if the element is open it won't heat at all. you need to take it apart and use a test meter to troubleshoot it.
