SOURCE: Heat turns off
Sounds like the high limit switch on the heater is kicking off. The flash is the switch shutting off the heating element. The only way to reset it is to turn unit off for about 5 minutes. Possible problems are: 1.) Bad thermostat 2.) blower motor not turning fast enough which means motor is bad.

Williams heaters have a manual reset for the spill safety switch. If the heater is not venting properly it will trip this switch and shut off main burner function. The switch is on the left side of the cover inside the small vent. You can use a screwdriver to push the button back in. If the heater then works you will need to get the vent inspected to make sure it is connected properly and there is no blockage.

Problem: firs let's identify the problem, there is a sensor on the inside panel, made originally for safety if you tipped the heater off, it kill the power causing it to turn off...after a year of so that sensor get a little rusty/dirty causing it not to work correctly...
let's find out how to fix that annoying turn off..
tool needed, a phillip screw driver.. electrical tape or soldering unit..
fixing it: take out the top and bottom screws, to open the panel. after you open the panel you'll see a metal bar screwed to the front controller...take all 6 screws out...the front panel comes off....then there is about 4 screws holding an inner box, open that up..
inside there, you;ll see lots of wires...look for 2 small blue wire running together to a black sensor that make noise everytime you move it....
disabling the sensor
2 ways you can do this..
-you can cut the wire off using a scissor, and connect the blue wires together, use the tape to tape them.
- you can solder them together on the back of sensor panel...
there you go problem solved...

Similar problem here. But in my case, it was a blown fuse. There's an in-line fuse on the internal wiring of the heater. Take the control-side off (remove the bottom grey plastic bracket, then remove a sheet metal screw, then slide the whole assembly down off of the radiator). Where the elements go into the reservoir at the bottom of the radiator, the white wire should have an inline fuse connected to it. It will probably be covered with what looks like heat-shrink tubing. Snip, snip, and replace.
