Replace the fan motor. It could also be the control board depending on the heater.

Why won't it continue burning more than 15min.?

If this is an electric heater it may have a blower/fan behind the heating elements. If this fan fails to run at its normal RPM than the heater is likely to overheat and shut down It may take a few minutes if the fan is turning but slower then the normal speed.

When heat turned on it trips out

Heaters tend to have safety features to make sure they don't start fires. Depending on the particulars of your heater, some things to consider:
  1. Most heaters have a tip sensor, so that they'll turn off if they are tipped over. If it's tipped right now, put it level and see if that helps. you might also try tipping it (while unplugged) through a wide range of angles, see if you can hear a switch engaging/disengaging, or something like a pendulum making contact with a wall. If that switch is stuck or mis-aligned, that may be the issue.
  2. If the heater has a fan to blow air in the room, see if the inlet side of the fan is clogged with dust bunnies or an inadvertently dropped rag. Or if it's been backed against something that may be blocking the inlet. No air going through to move heat away is an overheat danger and possible lock-out.
  3. If the heater has a pivot to turn the outlet side to side, see if it is impeded or blocked. If the pivot is engaged and the swinging head hits something, it can tip the heater over. Run into something, stop moving, probably shut off the heater.
  4. Heater usually has some sort of thermostat, or level-of-heat setting. if this sensor is defective, it may think that the system is too hot, and shut the system off. Many systems like this will be rigged to shut off if the sensor fails or goes open circuit, so that a defective or broken temp sensor doesn't just register as 'really cold, ramp up the heat power' and cause a fire.
Hope this is useful to you!

Once the heater reaches the set temperature at the thermostat it shuts off.the flame goes out but the pilot light stays on. the heater will not kick back on automaticaly when it gets cold however it will...

you will have to look into why the unit is tripping and needs resetting. Heaters usually have a fan delay, meaning that when the heat is satisfied, the fan continues to run for about an minute. If not, it could cause an overheating issue and trip a safety. Look for that to start with.

How do you turn on the heater?

Mine has two switches one says cool - off - heat, the other says fan on - fan auto. For heat I set the first to heat and the second to auto. This puts everything in to heat mode and the fan runs from the furnace control now not constantly. Hope this helps you out.

Furnace fires up and heats to desired heat setting and burner shuts down , but the main blower continues to run on.

its the fan control AFC not shutting off , it comes on at temp rise say 150f drops back to 130f with fan on , burner shuts off fan runs untill temp falls to 100f the fan shuts off in this case it keeps running

My heat runs but the fan will not shut off unless I throw the breaker to shut off heat and fan. what do I do?

How old is the furnace? Depending on the control, the fan is turned on & off by a printed circuit board or a thermal mechanical switch that turns on the fan when the heat exchanger heats up. Either way it sounds like the control is sticking due to contacts that are inside the control being burned or pitted causing them to weld together when the fan is energized.

All pro heater runs for a couple of minutes.then

it only shuts down because of an overheating condition or the lack of fuel. if you have an ohm or multimeter, check the ohms on the fan and see if you have any resistance. If you do the fan is good but may still not be putting enough air across the heat exchanger to safely alloww the heater to run without causing a fire.

Rheem RHQA Heater:Blower works but no heat.

Is there a setting on the thermostat for Auto or Fan? If so, make sure it is in the Auto setting. You will have a contactor that turns on the elements and a relay for the fan. Follow the wiring diagram to see which relay energizes the fan then unplug it to see if the fan stops.
