Heater won't relight after shutting down, but fan continues to run


Roger, you either have a gas supply issue or a voltage problem.
Since I don't know your aptitude and abilities pertaining to LP gas troubleshooting/testing procedures, I don't know how detailed you want to go...basically, make sure your propane tank isn't empty; or that the pressure regulator didn't freeze up. Make sure that it is rated and set for 28" of water column output.
Check to make sure all the wire connections are secure to the flame control terminal block and to each of the hi-limit switches.
Isolate & perform continuity checks to each electrical component, including the gas valve.
You'll need a manometer to test and set the gas input & output water column levels.

When the unit is running,, what color is the flame?
Is there a roaring sound?
Is the flame small and weak?

Lights while holding primer/pilot button then runs out of propane within seconds. If you wait a minute it builds up then does the same thing like the propane tank is empty but it is full.


Turn off the propane tank and disconnect the heater hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the heater hose/regulator to the propane t. Turn the tank valve on very, very slowly until it's completely open again. Now, try lighting the heater. If you are using a 20lb LP grill type tank, that should solve your problem.

Hope that helped.

Any time you run out of lp gas in a tank fed lp gas appliance what is the proper way to reignite the appliance when the gas lines have air in them?


Depends on the appliance. If it's a gas grill, turn the tank on very, very slowly until it's fully open.
If it's a gas heater or gas log set, the air will have to be purged out of the line, so the gas can reach the pilot, before relighting. If it's a gas range, depending on how long a run of piping, you may also need to purge it. If it's a gas furnace, you'll have to do the same thing. Unless, it's a high efficiency gas furnace, then it will purge itself when it runs thru the start up cycle.

Hope this helps.

Many newer grills have a safety feature built in where the valve will not
allow gas to flow if the burner valve is in ON position when the valve on
the tank is opened.

Try this - Shut of all valves, disconnect and then re-connect hose to tank,
turn on valve above LP tank, THEN turn on burner valve, light w/ spark or
match...

This feature can be really frustrating if you don't know it is in
operation...

Too much gas pressure. Are you sure that this is a LP heater and not a Natural gas heater? Is the regulator you have rated under 1/2 pound pressure? Try to throttle down the shutoff on the tank to see if pilot gets better. If so, you have a pressure issue. Gas you adjust the pilot gas valve?

Have a dayton hanging garage heater when trys to start acts like gas valve not opening heaters brand new.what should i look for


I have never seen a dayton gas heater but I will try. If this is an LP Gas
System are you using a 30lb. Cylinder, 100 lb cylinder or a whole house
Tank.

Next are you sure you got the right gas unit for the right gas system?
If using LP gas did you put an external pressure regulator before the unit?

Next is the a hot surface glow coil or a spark system ignition system?
If you have to hold the controller down and press a button similar to a outdoor gas grille is it sparking?

If it is sparking,did you bleed all of the air out? This could take several
tries on a new unit. Does this have a wall mounted thermostat that
controls the heater? Finally check to make sure that the gas valve
is switched on if it has that option.

Good Luck

Sounds like the thermocouple is not working or the flame is not hitting the thermocouple. It may take 30 seconds of flame or longer to keep it on. Check for a loose connection at the gas valve.

Either a 30# or 110# tank of propane will work. You might even get by for a short period of time using a gas grill tank, depending upon how cold it is outside.
