Check the air pump. If you are lucky the rotor is busted. If not, see if the fan spins freely with no binding. If so, the starter relay is bad, if equipped. Some heaters have external relays, others have internal relays and are not serviceable. Could also be a bad bearing. Could also be - someone sat on the heater or dropped something on it, or it fell out of the truck and the sheet metal is squashed and is against the fan blade.

First thing is to download the service manual.

You need to make sure the filters are clean and that you are getting the proper air pump pressure.

If the units starts up and runs good and slowly goes out it will normally be due to a lack of fuel getting to the nozzle. When there is not enough fuel being delivered to the nozzle from either a clogged fuel filter of dirty air pump output filter the unit will slowly shut down from lack of fuel.

If the unit shuts down while it is running properly and the nose come is orange then you probably have a problem with a photocell or the flame out control.

This type of heater is meant to be used in a ventilated area. The fumes will build up if you are in a closed area and it will soon become overpowering. This can also be dangerous from poisonous gases. Take heed to the warning label on the unit. It probably states use in a well ventilated area.
Hope that helps you.

Just installed a 30,000 btu Mr Heater blue flame heater last night, worked perfectly. This morning the flames and pilot light are burning mostly orange. What could be causing this.


That is a bad air/fuel mix... could be anything like clogged orifice or just needs to be adjusted.

Check out your warranty support first... and keep in mind poorly burning gas appliance can be EXTREMELY DANGEROUS.

Consider putting in carbon gas detectors in addition to a liberal sprinkling of smoke detectors!!

Be safe

The heat exchanger is burning due to high limit saftey stat. What should I do


The high limits are designed to shut the heater off if the water temp exiting the heat exchanger gets too high. One is set at 135f the other at 150f. The thermostat should shut the heater off once the pool water gets to temperature.

I'm not sure what you mean by "burning". The operating temp in a 400K btu heater is around 2000 degrees. If you are getting a lot of "sooting" that is typically caused by low gas supply. That's where you get orange flame instead of blue flame. Can you give me more detail?

What colour should your gas heater flame be


Hello,
It should be blue. If it's got orange tips, it's burning dust, If it's got yellow flames or tips, it may need the air shutter adjusted, regulator pressure adjusted, the vent unblocked or just a real good cleaning. Douglas
