Question about Lasko 5365 Ceramic Compact Heater

2 Answers

Unit shuts itself off after a minute or two.

It worked great until just recently. Now, it won't stay on for more than a minute or two. When it shuts itself off, the temperature display just keeps fading in and out, and none of the buttons work. Is there anything I can do, short of buying a new heater?

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!

I have a Frigidaire dehumidifer model FDL70S1 that wont stay running for more than 3 minutes and then it shuts the fan off, but still has power to the unit.

Hi lynn crisp, thanks for your post!

From my understanding you are having a challenging time with your Frigidaire dehumidifier shutting too quickly. It sounds like a possible problem with your sensor or control panel. Are you currently under warranty? I would contact your manufacturer for assistance to a proper resolution. -Matt

My TV won't stay on until it's warm?

have your unit power supply check, maybe some cold solder or leaky capacitor is the culprit.

Unit powers itself down

does it do this when on battery mode?
or when its plugged in?
i found they do tend to drain quicker the older it gets and that just because of a week internal battery.. i just leave mine plugged in to the cig lighter in my car and i dont have that problem but if you have to use battery power it will drain fast no real fix unless you get a new internal battery and its much easier to just leave it plugged in.
