Question about Lasko 5365 Ceramic Compact Heater
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.

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
