Question about Lasko 5540 Ceramic Compact Heater

1 Answer

No power My heater worked perfectly. Tried to turn it on one day and nothing happened. I unplugged it...........waited 10-15 minutes and still nothing. Did this several times. I've never had any problems with it till now. There is no red light to show it's getting power of any kind. Don't know what to do. Any ideas?

I have a Pelonis oil-filled electric radiator heater that will not turn on even when plugged in to a good outlet. The switch seemed a little erratic but worked but when I bumped into it this morning i

Unplug it, then open it and inspect for a loose wiring connection. If that doesn't help, then jumper across the tip-over switch to see if the switch is bad.

We have a new OFC2400TIF heater. We have set a program which worked for a day. Now the heater will not work on either manual or auto. The display lights are all on, the screen indicates that the heater is...

The heater may need to reset itself. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the heater from the wall outlet. Wait 12 - 15 minutes and plug the heater back in. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the controls as you normally would. Hopefully, that 12 - 15 minute timeout allowed the heater to reset itself. If this continues to occur, contact Dimplex Technical Service at

Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Heatrunner 33553 doesn't work

I had tried unplugging the unit for a few minutes but that didn't work, so I unplugged it for a few hours and it re-set to a working condition.

Won't turn on or up

If there is a 'lock' button on the heater, push and hold till the green light goes out.
otherwise - tradesmart, energysavers.

The function Lock is ON. To turn it off push the v and ^ at the same time for 2 seconds. Then the stove should function normal.

This sounds like you will need to replace the thermostat!
That should fix this common problem!

Oil filled Heater will not turn on and heat.

First thing make sure: · Ensure that your circuit breaker or fuse is working properly. · Be sure the heater is plugged in and that the electrical outlet is working properly. · Check for any obstruction. If you find any obstruction, turn the heater ?OFF?. Unplug the heater and wait a few minutes for it to cool down. Carefully remove the obstruction. Plug the heater in and turn it on again by referring to the OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS. Second, If you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the heater and look for anything strange like a blown fuse. A lot of times you can buy replacement at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace.
