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

1 Answer

Central locking on el ford falcon wagon keeps going up and down.

When locking the car with a key as I don't have the remote any more (problem still existed when had remote as well), the lock will continue up and down for sometimes up to 30 secs before stopping at either locked or unlocked. You can't walk away from the car because you don't know if it will stop at locked or unlocked. Any assistance in resolving this issue would be appreciated. thank you

    Same problem here, just bought the car a couple of months ago, had the car serviced, but the mechanics didn't know how to fix it. Sometimes it's more than 30 seconds, I've been waiting for almost 5 minutes in some cases. I think when holding the key in the close positition, you can actually force the lock to stop at the lock position. But it's a workaround, not a solution. Any help appreciated.

Is there a trick to starting the Pyrox 400? Turned the fan on and press on low then repeatedly press the ignition pilot light, start to smell of gas after a minute. Won't start Help please

Is the ignition sparking? When you press and hold down the buttons, the ignition should be sparking at the centre electrode. At the same time when you hold the buttons down, the gas valve is manually held open to release the gas. The spark is then supposed to ignite the gas. Hold the knobs down for about 3 to 5 seconds after ignition and the gas valve will stay on. If it lights but the flame wont stay on, it could be anything from a partially blocked aeration port to a worn knob. When you push down on the knob, it is supposed to press down on an electromagnetic lock which keeps the gas valve open when the flame is burning. When the knob or shaft isn't pushing down enough, it doesn't keep the gas valve locked and the flame will go out as soon as you let the knob go.

Hi ,I have a rinnai blaze 21TR, The lock is on and we have lost the manual so don't know how to get it off. Not sure how it go on in the first place. I'm assuming that is what the problem is as...

The heater's electronics should reset, if you turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the heater for 30 minutes. Then plug it back in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The electronics should revert back to the original factory settings. From there, you can reset them the way you had them - minus the lock out feature.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
