Question about Lasko 5365 Ceramic Compact Heater

1 Answer

Lasko 5365 Ceramic Compact Heater Troubleshooting Forum.

I have a Lasko 5365 portable heater and for what ever reason it has stopped working properly. Originally the problem started with turning it on high heat it would always shut off within 10 seconds. So it would basically only work on low mode. Now even the low mode is doing the same thing it is turned on and then shuts off by itself. However in the low mode it stays on for more then 10 seconds it can be several minutes, but it is guaranteed to shutdown every time. I am just hoping it could be a simple cleaning or something because it's a relatively inexpensive unit and is most likely not worth putting money into replacement parts. Any suggestions, tips, or hints would be greatly appreciated.

    Mine have done the same thing....TWO of them. The first year we used them they were wonderful and this year, just out of the blue, NEITHER will work! Runs for 10 seconds - sometimes longer - then just shuts off. Even unplugging and letting it reset for awhile may or MAY NOT work. What the heck???? These things were not cheap and I am highly disappointed in that we bought two of them and now they are totally worthless. DO NOT BUY!!!!!

Try taking a can of compressed air and spray in the vents in the front and the back of the heater. The heater has a sensor that gets dusty and causes it to shutoff to prevent overheating.

The heater should function properly once the dust is blown off the sensor.

Good luck!

Heater shows red ready button, but won't turn on. Any ideas? I've already unplugged, tried multiple outlets and vacuumed the heating elements.... ???? What next ????

Turn temperature setting all the way up.
If that does not fix, turn temperature setting all the way down, turn heater off, unplug for at least 10 minutes.

I have a lasko tower ceramic heater that keeps shutting down.

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.

Heater does not come back on

I found that if I unplug the heater from the power outlet for about 3 to 5 minutes, it goes back to normal. Ive had my heater about 1 year, and have successfully done this twice. Hope this helps~!

Will not stay on for more than a minute, reachers 57 degrees and turns off, can not be turned on again.

Try taking a can of compressed air and spray in the vents in the front and the back of the heater. The heater has a sensor that gets dusty and causes it to shutoff to prevent overheating.

The heater should function properly once the dust is blown off the sensor.

Good luck!
