Re: Whistling Heater

There may be an obstruction in the burner tube where the gas mixes with air. look for a spider web or similar.

Take it out and see if the fan wil turn by hand. It may have somethng obstructing it. The clicking is the motor overload. It wil burn out if it continues to keep clicking.

I need the sheet to correct the wistle noise on the 1004 e moore

The whistling noise may be from an improper air intake shutter control adjustment. For a Natural Gas Unit the air shutter control should only be open about 1/4 " . Also, when checking that, look to see if it's clogged with dust and lint. If so, vacuum it out using a crevice tool on the hose of your vacuum.

Vent-free Gas Appliances should be cleaned and serviced at least once a year. Usually in the Fall before firing it up for the heating season. Twice if you have house pets. Especially one's that shed a lot.

My flame keeps going out. i can press the reset button and some times it will work for a week sometimes only 30 seconds. It is an intermittent igniter. The flame seems to "roll back" when it...

Your GMS unit should not be intermittent ignition but direct electronic ignition. In any case the flame should never roll out of the chamber. There can be a few reasons for the roll out but sometimes a good cleaning of the heat exchanger and a combustion analysis can cure that. The intermittent flame issue is probably a dirty flame sensor and can be cleaned with light sand paper or steel wool. Be careful not to touch the igniter only the flame sensor. It is usually on the opposite side of the burners from the ignition source. Hope this helps :)

There seems to be an intermittent problem with the heater itself. You may need to call a technician to provide you with more information.
