    IVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH MINE HAD MINE FOR 6 YEARS NEVER A PROBLEM NOPE NOPE MY HEATER CAME OUT AWESOME

  • Clark with Big Toast Dec 11, 2012

    MILKHOUSE HEATER "CAUTION LIGHT" SOLUTION: Unplug the heater. Open it up and clean it out. I mean, buy a can of non-chlorinated brake cleaner and squirt all of the contacts good. Below the fan there is a sensor mounted on the heater element box on the bottom. That goes bad and causes it to trip. While you are there, squirt the motor bushings good with the brake cleaner and dab a drop of synthetic motor oil (just a drop) on EACH of the two motor bushings. Personally, I rewired this and bypassed all of the safety features. You can bypass that sensor without soldering or cutting any wires. All you have to do is unscrew the wires from the holder and then unscrew the tiny nuts and tiny bolts. Then bolt the together at one end (note the position) and put it back in the holder and tighten the screw to hold it in. This method fixes the issue completely as it removes the sensor from the equation. In fact, I just did that on my third milkhouse heater and it has been running solid for the last 15 minutes. Use your modified heater with caution!

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.

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.

  • RedWireNut Dec 13, 2010

    Allied Electronics has these thermostats. Allied part # 557-0020 or mfr (Selco?)part # OR-350-QC. Price in 2009 catalog has gone up (doesn't everything?)

  • RedWireNut Dec 31, 2010

    The inline TCO thermal fuse located in the line between the two snap disc thermostats is a NTE #8181 and can be obtained from Newark Electronics.

How do i change the temperature setting on a lasko 5628 without a remote

Posted on Mar 11, 2012

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.
