When we first bought the heater the coils did not turn red but they are now . what could cause this , and is it dangerous?


when you first bought the heater even if it wasnt "red" as you say did you get heat from it? now those type of heaters are good when they work. First the heater has 2 settings say low and high now in low the wattage will turn some of the elements partly red the reason you dont see it is because it is fan forced heat on those type heaters which causes the elements to look like they are not red but they are on, only low will do this. Now high will cause all elements to get "red" even while the fan is running. If there is no heat someone needs to bypass switch to see if they work.process of iliminitation.Hope this helps for you.

Auxilliary heat works, normal heat does not appear to be working.


Are you talking about a heat pump? Is the compressor and fan running in the outside unit? What is the outside temp? If the compressor is not running it could be a bad capacitor or bad compressor. If the lines are icing up it could be a low charge.

Heater wont run on hi and doesn't get warm at all


One of two things here. You blew an internal fuse or the heating element is broken. Take your unit apart and check for bad fuses and also check that the heating coil has continuity. Let me know how you make out.

You have a bad sequencer or thermal relay it controls the low fan and the heat strips. Normally there are tou but the one connected to the fan relay is the bad one.

My heater fan wont turn on in auto mode but will in manual


Well you have a good transformer and the fuse is not blown. So I would look for the most obvious thing which is the relay. Why the relay? Well most units do double duty as air conditioner and heater. AC and heat require different fan speeds. The relay shifts the fan from low to high for ac. The fan runs on low for heat. In rare instances it could be a bad wall thermostat but most times not. You know the fan is good because you can get it to come on manually.

Limit cycle error 4 blinks. if i shut the power off then back on it seems to run fine. it will cycle 4 or 5 times then shut down. ( even when not up to temp. the only way to get it going again is to turn...


If the fan speed is not set correctly and running on low or medium for heat then the high limit could be tripping fan should be running in high speed for heat.

Fan keeps running.


Some programmable thermostats have a circulate feature. This feature will allow your fan to run approx. 20 minutes per hour. This will insure better circulation, a better balanced temperature throughout the home & better air quality do to more air filtration. Read your thermostat manual to see if your thermostat has this feature and how to turn it off if needed. Another possibility would be on an older furnace with a fan limit control. If the temperature settings are set to low on the fan limit (or if the control is malfunctioning) you could experience a fan that runs a lot even if the thermostat is off.

Wont stay running


Reddy suggests: 1. Propane supply may be inadequate 2. High surrounding air temperature causing thermal limit device to shut down heater 3. Restricted air flow 4. Damaged fan 5. Excessive dust or debris in surrounding area solutions are: 1. A) Refill tank B) Provide additional and/or larger tanks. 2. This can happen when running heater in temperatures above 85° F (29° C). Run heater in cooler temperatures 3. Check heater inlet and outlet. Remove any obstructions 4. Replace fan. 5. Clean heater. could not get manual for your exact model but if you want manual for RLP 125 then; http://12.153.20.74/manuals/113893-01C.PDF appears to be the same beast. Hope helps :)
