Electronic eye could be an issue, however it could be a multitude of issues. Cracked fuel line, or cracked air line. Fuel filter partially clogged or impurities in tank. Low fuel pressure or poor spark. Plug partially clogged or fouled or spark plug gap issue.

    CAD sensor (electronic eye) is used to detect flame. If no flame is present, it will kick the reset breaker. Cleaning would be the first step to Dx this issue.

Most likely cause is the CAD flame sensor.

    Just wanted to add a little more detail, the flame sensor is under the main hood, just behind the combustion chamber. It looks like a rubber boot about two inches long and simply slides out of the mounting bracket. Sometimes they are just dirty and you can clean it with a Qtip slightly damp with isopropyl alcohol. Chanches are it's bad. you can get one from Mr. heater for about 3 bucks, the wires aren't the same color but all you have to do is clip the old ones and the new ones and splice them together. There is no hot or ground wire so there is no wrong way to connect them. Good luck...

You must make sure the mist is not to close to the igniter . If it is it wont be misty enough to ignite. And make sure its in the path of the mist. If its new return it to the store.

Ready heater r110 I have replaced nozzle, filers all, cleaned sensor, runs some times for 30 sec shuts down


The R110 is a spark plug heater, as you know. It does not have the sophisticated electronics that the newer heaters have.

My guess: SP heater runs 30 seconds & shuts down- bypassphotocell. If it runs fine, then the photocell is defective.The test is simpleIf the photocell proves to be good follow these troubleshooting tips

Wont stay burning if you let off ignition button


this could be a bad thermo coupling -- try and hold down the gas button for about 15 to 20 seconds while it is running and then let go and see if it stays running ( the thermo coupling needs to reach the proper temp ) -- if it shuts down after that then replace the coupling and all should be good.

A 1979 Colman RV furnace. Blower shuts off shortly after burner shuts off leaving a hot heat exchanger. After 15 seconds blower comes on again blows for 10 seconds shuts off comes on in 15 seconds blows...


The fan limiting switch is acting up. It should stay running until lower temp is reached. It will cycle until the temp stays below or at the low setting. Limit switches are adjustable.

Pool heater wont start but when i turn off the pump and start back again the pool heater comes on for 2 seconds and shuts off AGAIN


Heater must have water before it will fire up. There is a delay relay that may be dozing off. Not a bad thing but should be chk'd by a pool sevice.
