    I have been told that I need to replace the blower AGAIN.  Third time in about 4 years.    Cost of part alone is $800.    We have the entire heater moved into the house over the winter because service guy told us that it corrodes over the winter from sitting outside.   The cost of removing and reinstalling and buying $800 parts almost every year plus installation is ridiculous.   They deliberately do not make just the motor which is the problem. They make you buy the entire fan assembly.

My gas fireplace shuts off after burning about five minutes - both main burner and pilot shut off.


Most fire place burners have an oxygen depletion sensor on them nowadays. If you can restart it after a while, a few minutes or so, and shuts off, it is probably the oxygen sensor. The owner lights fireplace and shuts the door, and the fire depletes the available oxygen and the fire will start producing copious amounts of CO which is a hazard. Most fireplaces have a fresh air supply available to provide combustion air but needs to be opened for the fireplace to work properly. Check the manufactures recommendation as to the proper installation of the fireplace furnace.
Hope this helps

The igniter fires the gas, it burns for a minute or less, then stops and won't restart unless the dryer is stopped and restarted? Is this a coil problem?


Sounds like a clogged vent. If you let it run for a few minutes after it shuts off, it will come back on. Your overtemp. thermostat doesn't allow it to work, because the hot air is not being sucked in. But to answer your question, not the coils for sure in my opinion. When coils fail, it won't turn on after 10 min of running or more. Not right away.

Kerosene heaters run for 30 mins then shuts off.


Sounds like the pump or air filter is dirty. If cleaning them doesn't help, the pump will need to be rebuilt.

Honeywell heater turns off after 3 min. Never comes back on


It sounds like the temperature sensor has either failed or come loose and is sitting too close to the heating coil. Alternatively, the level-sensor, which shuts off the heater when it is tilted, may be malfunctioning.
If the heater is not sitting level, it will also shut itself off.
In any case, if it is under warranty, return to the manufacturer. If it isn't, a local appliance repair shop should be able to isolate the problem.
