Sound like the blower motor is burning out. after it has run for a while, shut off the power to your furnace, then fell the motor. if the motor is really hot(be careful) then its starting to burn out. This is a very common symptom of this.

Kozy world propane wall heater pilot will not light


This can be caused by several things:

1. The inline gas valve running to the the heater is OFF. Turn the valve ON.

2. The gas control knob on the heater is not exactly in the PILOT position. Unless the knob bottoms
out and you feel strong pressure (other than spring pressure) pushing back at you. It's not exactly
in the PILOT Position. Once the pilot lights, hold the control knob in for 30 seconds to 60 seconds
to allow the Thermocouple to full heat.

3. The pilot is dirty and needs to be cleaned, as do the burners.*

4. The LP Gas Tank is empty or to low to maintain te proper gas pressure.

* Here is a link to a demonstration on how to properly clean the pilot & burners.

My whirlpool water heater that i just installed is not heating up...it is for a mobil home...help


Are you on propane? and did you use a natural gas water heater for a replacement? If you did, it will not hardly have a flame.
You would need to install a propane water heater, which the info that you gave, that is about all I can come up with.
If you can give me some more info, I can help you.
Please rate the new guy :)
And get back to me with an answer to the above and also, what does the current flame look like? Nice blue flame, with 1/4" yellow tips? Total flame should be 3 to 5 inches tall.
Good Luck,
Paul Gibson

What color should the flame be on a coleman


hi the gas goes along aburner tube then comes out of the burner then it hits a baffle in side the heat exchanger as long as there is not sooting the flame will look yellow , i would say the best thing would be to contact the makers of the furnace direct they should have a technical department , they might be able to offer more help or have there own people to look at the heater most of these companys have a warrenty on there heaters

Heater won't stay lit after releasing yellow button


you need to replace the thermocouple at the burner tip it will be a copper line with a bulb in the flame tip with a copper tube leading back to the gas valve and it senses the flame and keeps the gas valve open
