There are four possible answers to this problem, if the heater starts normally, runs for a few seconds or minutes and the shuts down but was still running normally at the time of shut down, this could be caused by the photocell, also known as the flame out control. This safety device may be failing, shutting down even though the heater is working normally, check the operation of the photocell. The second cause may be partial fuel filter blockage, the heater is effectively starving itself of fuel, so the flame blows out, hence the puff of smoke, and then shuts down on the safety cut out. Third cause, if this model has a compressor at the rear of the motor, the problem could be low pump pressure, caused by wear or contamination of the carbon blades, this would cause the wrong amount of fuel to be syphoned up, with weak fuel mix the heater may blow itself out and shut down. The fourth cause, perhaps indicated by the puff of white smoke, is contamination of the fuel with water, water will cause the white smoke and also is indecated by white residues or a power like substance on the end plate of the heater which glows red hot when burning.

Runs for 15 secc.'s to 1 Min. Then Shuts off...


Steve- You've got to understandhow it's supposed to work before you can fix it.!
  1. The ignitor only glows for 5 seconds. Just long enough to start combustion.
  2. The photocell monitors the flame color. If it doesn't like the color of the flame (or no flame at all), then it shuts the heater down. Does this sound like what may be happening?
You must troubleshoot the system and decide whether you are having a fuel delivery/mixture problem or an electronics problem.

Read these troubleshooting tips.

Good luck.

Heater kicks out


Honeywell heaters like HZ3650 have a screen on the air inlet at the back side of the heater. This screen can be partially blocked off by an accumulation of lint, etc. The lint blocks some of the air flow which may cause heat increase within the heater to the point that the safety shutoff thermostat shuts off the power. Operation is returned after a cool down period only to repeat the shut down cycle after a short period of operation. If this is the cause of the problem the screen must be cleaned.

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 :)
