E1 error code indicates an open thermistor or open thermistor circuit. A thermistor is a component that relays the temperature in the dryer to the control board. If the thermistor has failed, Error code E1 will be displayed.
You need to call a repair person to fix it.

How large and sealed of an area are you using it in? I ask because those units have a low oxygen sensor which will shut it down if there is not enough oxygen in the space.(kinda prevents that pesky suffocation thing). Otherwise if using it in larger cold spaces, the issue is can be from the smaller tanks. As mentioned above, a larger tank can solve this, because these units have a fairly good input rate, which will cause the smaller tanks to freeze, and lower the propane temperature and evaporation rate, basically runs out of gas until the tank warms back up.

The fan switch on this unit is a bi-metal switch located on the heat exchanger. Check for a bad connection. It is 120 volts so be careful when checking. you can test the switch with an volt meter or one of those probe lights to see if the switch closes when hot. you are looking for 120 volts to the blower motor. Spin the blower motor to see if that is bound up with debris.

The white smoke is the kerosene fuel hitting the hot combustion chamber. Your flame has went out. The cause for this could be many. The first thing you need to do is check your fuel. Remove your fuel cap and look at the bottom of the tank for trash or water. Use a good flash light. It will all settle to the bottom. If so, drain and clean out your tank. Add fresh kerosene. Check your fuel filter. Replace if dirty. Test again. If problem continues, It is possible that your photo eye could be deffective or just dirty. It is located next to the ignitor or spark plug. It sees the flame. If the flame goes out, the unit shuts down. The flame has to be smooth (not sputtering). Water in the fuel will make it sputter and the unit will shut down. When the water/moisture in tank settles to the bottom, your suction fuel line is just off the bottom which results in it picking up the water instead of good fuel. Always disgard the old fuel from previous year and start with fresh fuel. This will cut down alot of your problems in the future.
