I don't have manual, it's a borrowed one. Several days later, I pushed the botton at the bottom several times, looks it solved my problem.

take the wattage of the heater, divide it by 1000 then multiply that by your cost per KW/hr from your electric bill, then multiply that by the number of hours you operate the heater. That will give you the exact cost to operate at full heating per hour.

mine does the same thing every year. I just clean out the dust from the vents on the back of the heater so the heater can breath otherwise it could get too hot and the safety fetcher kick in and makes the heater stop working.

look for the power rating of your heater (usually it is in Watts (W) and convert it to kilo Watts (kW) unit by diving it by 1000).

kW = W / 1000.

now divide the kW by hour many hours your planning to operate your unit.

power consumption = kW/operating hours

when you get your power consumption value then multiply it with the power cost (you can find it usually in your bill).

cost to operate = power consumption x power cost.

Happy New YEAR!!!!

### My lasko 5160 is flashing 88 with some other lights on,what do i do

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!

### Absolutely no power to my Lasko 5540 heater

There is a thermal fuse in line with the power chord. Open your heater housing up and trace the power cord. It is located inside a white teflon sleeve. Locate the fuse and either replace it with the same value. Appliance repair shops will have them in stock. If you want heat right away, cut out the fuse and jumper the 2 wires together. Instant heat.
