Question about Mr. Heater Model MH12TS - Single Tank-top Propane Heater

1 Answer

Tank-top propane unit won't stay lit

Portable tank-top heater (for 20# tank) lights for a moment but then makes very loud air-fluttering sound and flame goes out. Has to be shut off or vertical tube heats up in a very scary way.

    So I need to remove the regulator...Do I take it apart and replace the filter or just replace the whole regulator?

  • David Shaub May 11, 2010

    There is a filter in the screw in part of the regulator. It looks like brass shavings. If it gets clogged, it won't allow enough gas pressure to keep the fire on the catalytic burner. It needs replaced.

I had to replace the regulator. If you have a propane appliance shop near you, you can probably just get the nipple that goes into the bottle. It's aboit 3/16" diameter, 3/4" long and may have a 6 sided end up inside the screw on cap of the regulator.

the drain hole and tube is blocked or the evaporator core is covered in gunk and holding the water up and not dripping where it is designed to

How do I fix my electric heater


  • sounds like the sensor or bulb that tells it to start the blower is defective/ im not familiar with your unit but this seems the most logical answer most furnace will not turn the blower on right away usually 90 seconds after the ignition but will also run longer to exhume any dangerous carbon monoxide. Electricic heaters are different. What type of unit do you have
