SOURCE: I have blue rhino patio heater, the pilot will

If the pilot gets the least bit of dust in the safety will mimmick a low oxygen situation and cause the heater to shut down. The fix is easy. You must blow out the pilot safety device. More HERE

Do you have an external Thermostat mounted
nearby? It could be that it is to close to the heater and the thermostat is causing it to short cycle

I have an older sterling gas furnace hung from the garage ceiling that cuts out intermittently . It does not trip the breaker but often if I reset the breaker at the fuse panel box it will start up.


Hi,
The heater is going into "lockout"... it should be flashing a code on the ignition control that will tell you why it went into the lockout condition...

My guess would be that the high limit switch is bad or going bad and it is cutting out when it shouldn't be... or the flame sensor is loosing contact and cutting the burner off...

You could try to clean off the flame rod with a soft cloth...

We have yellow flame is that a problem


haven't had much to do with this type of heater but a yello9w falme is usually reducing the oxygen from the gas by the the air mixer on some flame effect fires they cover air holes on burner to get the flames yellow the only problem is they can carbon up from this in a heater you don't look into flames this may be ok but i would check the burner air mixture hole if has one but that smost likely the reason for yellow flame not blue so its probably no problem carbon in heat exchanger will make heat transfer a bit slower so probably best to try and fix
