Question about Coleman Propane Forced Air Heater w/Electronic Ignition (50,000-80,000 BTU)

1 Answer

My Heater Sparks and shoots out smoke

I have a Coleman-Evcon heater for a 1999 mobile home. I just turned on the heat about 1 am yesterday morning, and it would not shut off. I had to throw the breaker to get it turn off. Then it blows out cold air all of a sudden. Now when it got turned on it sparked like it was going to catch on fire and a pillow of black smoke with something that smelled like it was fried came out. Can you help

Most likeley a bad transformer. Shut off the breaker, then remove the cover of the box containing the transformer & circuit board. If the transformer is bad, it will look and smell burnt. Mark the wires before you disconnect it, so you know how to connect the replacement. Then remove the bad transformer and bring it to a heating & AC parts store so they can match up a replacement part for you.

There should be one right above the burner tray. Look at the wiring diagram (pasted on one of the panels) and follow the wires Usually red orange or yellow) to the switch (may look like a rectangle plate with 2 prongs) and jump the switch with a jumper to test.

NO you cannot. I also advise you to completely disconnect all power to it until ready to do the work, you may cause a fire otherwise. Be safe.

I have a coleman evcon furnace that wont work. The electrical box green light is not on at all so it cannot pinpoint what the error is. Any thoughts?


Hi, I would just make sure you have power to the furnace. Check breakers or look for the power switch on the electrical box. Also, some mobile homes have a wall switch that cuts power to the furnace.

It should have a two part chimmney with a 4 inch inner exhaust section and a larger 6 inch outer section that goes over the flange on the top of the furnace. If your existing chimmney does not have this you may have to buy a chimmney kit for a mobile home application.

BEWARE OF HIGH VOLTAGE! 220VAC CAN KILL YOU! That said, it sounds like you have a short in the control (24VAC) curcuit to the condenser. A mouse probably made a home in the control compartment of your condenser. BEWARE OF HIGH VOLTAGE! 220VAC CAN KILL YOU!
