    The pilot works well. When it is turned on the heater works well for about 5 to 10 minutes and shuts off. I can start the pilot again immediately, then set the heater to medium and it will burn about another 5 minutes and shut off.

    I have the same problem and I checked the manual and they indicated to take the appliance apart and clean the pilot as if the pilot goes off, so does the heater. Did that and noticed that when the unit is cool for awhile, the pilot has a nice large blue flame and after running and heating up, flame on pilot starts decreasing and then eventually go out. The longer it cools, the longer the flame on the pilot will stay lit. Is there a sensor that would be overheating there. Also, if it is left on the lowest heat setting, then longer the wait for the eventual demise of the flame of the pilot. Any ideas. Thanks

Pilot on my gas furnace won't stay lit


Try cleaning the thermocouple tip if you can see ashes or any buildup on it. If you know the wind isn't blowing it out (had mine blow out from high winds before) then I would change the thermocouple before anything else.

What makes the flame and pilot goes out about five minutes


wind, if there is any wind getting in your flu it will blow out your pilot light
which heats the thermo coupling and keeps your gas valve open its a safety device so if pilot blows out gas valve shuts down so as not to leak gas hopes this helps

Hi I have an H400 hayward. when heater is activated, it stays on for 5 seconds then shuts down eventually reading ignition failure code or IF on screen. the ignitor is new, the heat sensor is new, the gas...


When you say it stays on, Does the main burner actually light? If the burner never lights, then I'd look closely at the igniter, as it also acts as the flame sensor. Possibly you have a good enough ground to get a spark, but not good enough to sense the flame. If the main flame is starting, look and see if it is blowing off of the igniter. If this is the case, perhaps it isn't in the correct position, or there are still a few dirty passageways in the main burner. You can download a manual for your heater here: http://www.haywardnet.com/products/Manuals/pdfs/Manual285.pdf

My mr heater won't stay running


No pilot in this unit.
Check the thermocouple and its connections.
The thermocouple is the device that has the copper cable connecting it to the vave unit. It leads up into where the burner can "heat it up". This indicates to the controll valve that the gas is actually burning and keeps the valve open.

Wall furnace shuts off after about 10-20 mins


sounds like its not venting properly...it likely is shutting off on a "Spill switch" or "Vent safety switch"....check the vent/chimney first off.....also the pilot could be dirty..,..a lazy pilot tends to blow out easily....pilot should be blue and sharp,,,big enough to fully envelope the thermocouple

Stays lit for 25 minutes and shuts off


How large and sealed of an area are you using it in? I ask because those units have a low oxygen sensor which will shut it down if there is not enough oxygen in the space.(kinda prevents that pesky suffocation thing). Otherwise if using it in larger cold spaces, the issue is can be from the smaller tanks. As mentioned above, a larger tank can solve this, because these units have a fairly good input rate, which will cause the smaller tanks to freeze, and lower the propane temperature and evaporation rate, basically runs out of gas until the tank warms back up.
