Question about Mr. Heater Heating & Cooling
Yesterday right after discharging my 12ga slug gun, the heater caught fire with visible flames coming from and all around the back of the heater. It made a loud "whooshing" sound at the same time. It extinguished itself after a few seconds. I checked it today for dead bugs, cob webs, and gas leaks and none were found. I operated the unit with no problems today. I can only assume that the muzzle blast of the shotgun (5 feet away) caused the problem. My question is: is this normal with this type of heater? Have you had any complaints of the same thing happening to other hunters? I will really appreciate any thoughts or comments!
Well first thing is don't discharge a 12 gauge indoors! Having said that, good job this time because it has identified a propane leak! Check all the joints for leaks using soapy water and look for bubbles. The flamey explosion will have got rids of the bugs and cobwebs. :>)
Invest in a Carbon Monoxide Monitor as well.
