SOURCE: 20 lb tanks

Yes you can use a 20lb tank to run the heater. I purchased a adaptor hose it hand screws into heater & screws onto tank works fine. Bought the adaptor hose at HD.

There may be dust building up in the ODS safety pilot assembly. The simplest way toresolve this is to flish the pilot with rust buster. Why rustbuster? It has a telescoping tube that makes it easy to direct the squirt into the pilot. Let it dry then retry. You will be amazed.

SOURCE: Can I install 4500 wt elements in a marathon MR50238? The tank specs are the same as MR 50245.

1) Product warranty will be voided if you install 4500 watt elements in year-2008 model MR50238 3800 watt marathon tank.
Older 3800 watt element models have been discontinued.

2) Copy following links for Marathon resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Review-Rheem-Marathon-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-water-heater-element.html

3) Product warranty is voided if element wattage exceeds label on side of unit.

4) Marathon has a problem with elements burning out frequently.
To solve this problem, they suggest installing element with lower wattage, such as the 3800 watt.
Upper 3800 SP610130
Lower 3800 SP210197

Do I need to have both or one pound bottle to use 12'hose on 20 pound tank? I see some don't use any is there a chance a leak may happen?


you can use either the 1 pound bottles or the 20 pound, The hose that you screw into the Mr Heater, goes onto the connection that a 1 pound bottle would go on. The right side bottle is where I have mine connected, there are no leaks

I did some research on these units-- I pass them on to you-- Do these help?

your Mr. Heater the model that uses two small one pound cylinders or you have the choice to hook it up to a single larger tank? if so, you must use the special filter connected to the Mr. Heater and then your hose to tank.
This happened to me and after I hooked up the filter my problem was fixed.

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.
just one new cylinder, it will run on just one, to verify a problem with the cylinders. Also it could be the pilot light, sit and watch the pilot light to see if it goes out for some reason. If it does the heater will shutdown automatically, but you already know that.


Let us know if we can help further?

My heater stays lit for a few minutes then goes out. Also it has a high pitch whistle when on low.

Hayward heater not working


You'll never get enough gas from a 20 pound tank. Even 100# tanks struggle to evaporate enough gas to keep up with that heater.

In the mean time, what is the output pressure on your regulator?
