I was cleaning out my Lasko ceramic heater 6000, looking for instructions on how to do so, and came across your comment. After I opened it up and cleaned everything out (really easy, no instructions needed, it is all obvious) I started thinking about how much I hate that beep as well. So I decided as long as I had it opened to try to disable it.
Well, I could tell from plugging and unplugging that it was (unfortunately) mounted on the under side of the green circuit board. You will have to unscrew the circuit board completely (all wires still attached) and (carefully!) move it so you can flip it upside down to get to the other side. Note: there were 7 screws to remove and 1 was under the motor and really hard to get to. The motor looked WAY too complicated to remove so I got the screw started just a little with a precision screw driver and turned it the rest of the way with needle nose pliers.
Once the circuit board is off, the beeper is a little black circular thing (about 1/2 inch in diameter) with a little hole in the middle. It has a serial number on it and a "+" symbol. It looks like it is built in two pieces (upper and lower), so I tried to carefully remove the upper piece with needle nose pliers while leaving the lower piece connected to the circuit board. Well, the whole thing ripped out! I thought two things: 1) It will never beep again, and 2) I hope this didn't break a circuit causing the whole thing to fail.
Well, I put the circuit board back on ( I left off the one difficult screw, as 6 of 7 is more than sufficient to hold it on). Put the whole unit back together, and . . . . IT WORKS FINE!!!!!
Good luck!

I have model 5532, but I think they all have the same problem. There seems to be a safety device in the ceramic heater that turns off if it gets too hot. It "remembers" when this happens as well and will shut off until it is unplugged for 10-15 minutes.

This happens on even lightly used heaters if used in dusty conditions. Dust builds up behind the ceramic heater and the lack of flow causes it to overheat. The unit must be dismantled and the dust brushed/vacuumed out. The good news is that not only will the heater work again, but it will have better airflow too!

To do this, tech support and other people say to "clean the rear grill", but my rear was not dirty. The front grill had some dust that I vacuumed clean, but did not help. In my unit there are no filters before the air goes through the heater element. The problem is in the center of the heater. Taking out the internal fan (four screws on the sides of the squirrel fan box), I could see that the radiator was over half covered in dust. I cleaned that dust out using a shop vac and the problem went away.

Opening the heater was a little tricky, two of the screws were triangle head screws. Once inside, however, it is a simple proceedure to remove the fan. Of course, you should unplug the heater and wait a while before opening it up to make sure there are no electrical charges stored in the unit.

1. A Tip-Over Switch is built in to prevent operation if the Heater is tipped over.2. A thermal overload protector is built in to prevent overheating.3. If an overheat temperature is reached, the Heater will automatically shut off. It can only resume operation when the user resetsthe unit.To Reset Heater:1. Unplug the Heater and wait 10 minutes for the Heater to cool down.2. After the Heater has cooled down, plug the unit into a 120V~ electrical outlet and follow the operation instructions describedin this manual.

If your heater shuts off unexpectedly or fails to operate, one of the above-mentioned safety features may have been activatedto prevent overheating.1. Be sure the power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet.2. Check your heater for obstructions blocking air flow and remove them.3. Make certain the Heater IS NOT FACING a wall or large object; this may restrict the air flow.If you have a problem that can not be resolved by the steps listed above, contact Technical Assistance at 800-233-0268, Monday throughFriday, between the hours of 8am and 5pm

I have 2 screws on this same model 6221 that will not release.. At least I am assuming they are screws one in the top corner and one in the bottom corner.

Bench test. With heater tore apart, energized, a volt meter connected across the sensor will indicate a voltage when it opens. take note of aproximate temperature and compare with the sensor temp rated value.
It takes a bit of skill to trouble shoot, repair, and put it back together. Toss it out if in doubt.

Either the Overheat switch, or perhaps the Tilt switch is shutting down the unit.

Make certain there is nothing in front of the unit.

Make certain the unit is flat on the floor.

I just fixed my Stanley Lasko 675900 FOR GOOD and would like to tell the world how to fix it!

1. Remove the front plastic grill. The bolts are torx heads with a center pin. You may be able to find a torx head driver with the center pin but I improvised. I Used a dremel tool with a small rounded diamond bit to grind the center pins out of each screw so I can use a standard torx head driver on the screws.
2. Remove the heating element. These should be Phillips screws.
3. Blow out the dust from the back side of the heating element. (be careful with the fragile fins)
4. put it all back together and it should work just fine.
5. (optional at your own risk!) I believe the small gadget attached to the top of the heating element with the white wire is the limiter. You can use pliers to slide the unit out of the element and either move the unit further toward the center area, or cut the device out completely with wire cutters and then splice it back together. If you do this REMEMBER TO CLEAN THE BACK OF TH HEATING ELEMENT EVERY MONTH TO PREVENT A DUST FIRE!

I hope this work for you and good luck!
