Lasko 5610 red caution light, no power

My Lasko space heater's red "caution" light is on, and the heater no longer heats. What exactly is the message it's sending me? Element shorted out, switch not functioning, insufficient voltage? ls there anyway to reset it?

    I have the same model, and my "Caution" light recently came on, and the heater stopped working. Does this mean it needs to be replaced, or is there something I can do to safely reset it? I am not very familiar with the inner workings of electronic devices, so testing functions on a circuit board is out of the question for me unless made very straight-forward and simple.

The thermal resister between the two reset breakers on the bottom is what the problem with mine was

In the bottom of th e 5610 there are 2 automatic reset breakers. In betwene the two there is wire connecting them together. In the middle of this wire is a thermal resister and thats what repaired mine. Replace it and your heater will heat again.

The caution light is telling you something is wrong. most wired baseboard heaters have a hi limit cutout that may be bad.  it is connected into the heater circuit as a safety device.  you could jump out this element to test this theory.  if the element is shorted, certainly it would blow a fuse or circuit breaker.  if the element is open it won't heat at all.  you need to take it apart and use a test meter to troubleshoot it.

Schematic plf504d thermalinc

My experience with Lasko heaters is with the small portable ceramic types. On mine there are two knobs. One is the "Power"; the fan symbol is for fan only, then (I) Low Power and (II) High Power 1500 watts. The other know is the thermostat from (-) to (+). Set the thermostat towards (+) until the temp in the room is the way you want it. Then turn the thermostat know towards (-) until the unit shuts off. This is now the temperature setting and the heater will cycle on and off to this setting. Hope this helps.

Hi, I have the Lasko Ceramic Elements heaters. When I plug it in, the light lights up to show it's plugged in, but when I try to press the POWER button turn it on, it beeps but does not do start heating...

If I am getting this right you just purchased this heater? I would return it and get another one. It sounds like the tip over switch is not made and will only show that power is getting to it but the tip switch is keeping it from heating.

Yellow caution light

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.

Lasko heater model 5620

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.
