I think someone on this board can help but reply with more info. What is the model? And, does the heater have a spark plug or an ignitor (glowbar). Troubleshooting is different depending on type of heater.

I have a coleman furnace with a pilot light that keeps going out.When i manually light it the furnace runs 12 to 14 hours, then no more pilot light and i must relight.


Remove the burner and gas valve from the furnace and use compressed air to blow the area under the pilot area ans all around it. The dust and stuff usually cause a condition called "Lazy Pilot" and the flame is probably not going in the designed directions. While you have it out Id replace the thermocouple with a new one reassemble and re-lite and note the difference. The flame should be mostly Blue and no yellow (or vary little at the top end of the flame only) Orange in the top area indicates a good burning flame and the closer to the base the bluer it gets.


While you have the burner out look inside and inspect the inner heat exchanger for cracks or rusted open holes there should be none. Turn on your fan while inspecting and see if you feel the steady blow of air from it inside the heat exchanger indicating a hole. Don't confuse the air that may come down the flue with the air from the blower though. A little breeze is expected from this.

This will take care of over 90% of the problems with the "Blow out" symptom.

If you still have problems you can try and "turn up the pilot". Usually a screw close to the pilot tubing is covering the adjustment screw. Put some soap bubbles around it so you can see if it leaks or not and turn the screw out for more flame (CCW) and in (CW) for less.

Hope this helps Please grade me accordingly and good luck.

Not burning with top on


Ignite =Burn? I assume its gas. Sounds like its starved for combustion air and while open it is getting plenty of air. Check for obstruction to the burner inlet area and maybe a hornet built a mud nest during the off season in it so look closely. Also maybe the shutter (if so equipped) is not open. You don't mention any miscolored parts of the flame. It should be blue for the most part unless its a kerosene heater.

I had the same problem with a 110. It was the plactic cover over the filter it had cracks in it and would not push out enough fuel for it to run with the cover on. It would just blow out the flame. I replaced the cover with the adjustment screws on it and filters and runs like a champ.

Will not stay lit.


Sounds like you have a blockage to the main jet. If you have a compressor just blow the jet out from the top and with a bit of luck it will clear it. If not you may need to remove the outer covering and find the pipe to the main jet and again using compressed air just blow it out. Usually not much goes wrong with these apart from blockages every now and then and most of the servicing places just blow them out with compressed air. Just make sure if you remove a pipe you tighten the pipe up properly when re-fitting it. Hope this helps
