Re: lasko heater model 5620
One of the two thermostats died in mine. They are NC170 deg C thermostats. (NC = normally closed) Since they are NC they read shorted at room temp, just use an Ohm meter or check for continuity and you are all set.
I have the same problem, i bought this from lowes about 4 months ago and the orange light came on a few days ago so i unplugged it for a day and when i plug it back up, same thing, I cant get it to work. Any suggestions, please post
Got this info off their website: SAFETY FEATURES 1. A thermal overload protector is built in to prevent overheating. 2. When an overheat temperature is reached, the Heater will be automatically shut off and the CAUTION light will be lit. After the CAUTION light goes off, you may resume normal operation. 3. If the Heater senses that the room temperature is too high, the Heater will shut off, the display will begin to flash and the green heating light will also flash. To reset the unit, unplug the Heater and wait 10 minutes for the Heater to cool down. 4. After the Heater has cooled down, follow the operation instructions described in this manual. MODEL 5620 TROUBLE TIPS If your heater shuts off unexpectedly or fails to operate, one of the above-mentioned safety features may have been activated to prevent overheating. 1. Be sure the power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet. 2. Check your Thermostat setting. The Heater may be off because it has reached the desired temperature setting. If you have a problem that can not be resolve by the steps listed above, contact Technical Assistance at 800-233-0268, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8am and 5pm EST.

Make sure the tank outside has oil ( Kerosene) in it. Check the fuel tap (under the tank) is turned on. When you press and hold the heat control button, it should ignite after a few minutes. The lever on the bottom is the fan control switch (high speed or low speed fan) Make sure that the unit is plugged into the power. If I remember correctly, a red light appears to say it is powered up on the bottom left hand side.
You could take a table lamp or a drop light a electric drill or anything similar,and see if you can unplug the insert and plug one of these items in and see if the plug works I am taking for granted that you can get to the plug without having to pull the insert out or at least not all the way out If you can't do that Turn the breaker off to that circuit pull the switch out and make sure nothing is touching Hook a tester to the wires and then turn the breaker on and see If you have power to that switch turn the switch off and on watch the meter and see if it does turn on and off If you have power coming out of the switch. and you can't reach the plug then you only option would be to pull the insert As for a fuse there may be one but not look like what you are thinking a fuse will look like it is usually a temperature fuse that is shaped similar to a diode the symbol for it can be two ways it could have what looks like a c laying on its side upright and also another c beside it on its side aiming down like a snake crawling. The other symbol looks like a rocket with no fins on its side with a with a what looks like a T laid sideways coming off one end
1. Plug unit in

3. Adjust desired temp with + / - buttons
4. Press Power button again to set time
5. Adjust desired time with + / - buttons

Has anyone had the probelm with this heater (HPH15LED) that it doesn't continually turn back on to maintain a constant temp? I find it reaches the set temp and then doesn't come back on??
To cancel the ON TIMER here's what you need to do: . Press the "ON Timer" button or press the "ON-OFF" button. The setting will be canceled and the timer indicators will go out.
TO RESET THE UNIT
The ON Timer will be canceled if the power plug is removed from the power point, a power failure while the appliance was in standby mode, or if the ON Timer setting is canceled. "00" will flash on the digital monitor when power is reinstated. Pressing the ON button and starting the unit will delete the =00".
there is a thermostat trip switch which has probably safety cut out. Unplug the unit from the mains power. Remove the three screws holding the control section to the radiator main body (two at the base - you will have to remove the wheel bracket to access the screws) and one behind a plastic cover in the recess at the top of the unit above the theromstat control. Gently remove the control unit. You will now see three sets of electrical connections to the unit main body. Select the top connection and between where the two wires meet the connection is a black bump. Gently press this and you will hear a click. The unit is now reset. Replace the control section to the main body with the three screws as above, replace the wheels and your unit is fully functional again.Hope that this helps. I have just repaired my unit in this exact way.
Hi, if you are talking about the control on this heater and it is broken or worn out, you will need to kill power and pull it out far enough to excess wires to this control.You may have to open the entire unit to get it pulled out. After you do get to it, I am sure you will have several wires coming into switch from heater and the power cord coming in. You will need to by- pass this switch. The hot and neutral and ground if you have one, will come in to switch. Disconnect them and note on a drawing where they were connected for future termination. If this is a 3 posistion switch, high, med, low, you can use either one. Neutral from power in will go to neutral in unit white wire.One of the colored wires from the switch will go to the black side of the power cord. You can change them to see what temp and speed they are and use the one you want. Please use caution when having the wires exposed and plugged in when checking it out. I Wouldn't want you to get a jolt or burn!! Please update me on this unit and what you have done. You can contact me by my user name. Best of Luck, Sincerely, Shastalaker7
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.
