Question about Mr. Heater MHU45LP
I have just installed a Mr. Heater furnace in my garage. After I completed the installation I plugged the furnace in, set the thermostat and the furnace fired up and was running fine. I went into the house for about 30 minutes and when I came back out the blower was blowing cold air. When I checked the control board the LED was blinking 4 times which, according to the book means the high limit or roll out switch is open. The only information I can find in the book says that this normally closed switch opens on a temperature rise and to check for adequate combustion air before manually resetting switch. The switch is supposed to be located on the burner box top behind the ignition control board. I see what I believe is the switch they are talking about but I see no way to reset it. Can anyone help?
The roll out switch is a small disc shaped part about the size of a nickle. There may be more than one. anyway there is a button shaped like a small peg in the center if it, push it in and it should stay in. You may need to re examine the limit switch, because this is what it sounds like. they are rated for a set temperature, so your application may need a higher temp. A simple way to check parts like these is to by-pass them by taking the wires off the part and connecting them together. If this solves the problem, that it. My only concern is that this is a new installation, and maybe its not venting adequately or its burning up all the usable air in the room. That's why most of these parts are on the equipment.

1. Thermostat calls for heat. 2. Draft inducer motor starts. 3. Pressure switch attached by a small plastic or rubber tube senses the negative pressure produced by the draft inducer and closes. 4. Draft inducer runs for 30 seconds to a minute before you hear a gas hissing sound. The ignitor did not glow, the flame sensor (a small metal probe about 1/8" in diameter, with a white porcelain base) does not sense the flame, so after 8 to 10 seconds the hissing sounds stops with no ignition of gas to heat your home. Your furnace shuts down and goes into a lock out condition until you turn your power switch back off and on again. Then the sequence starts all over again with no ignition of the gas. Solution:You probably need to purchase and install a new ignitor. I would suggest that you inspect your ignitor closely for cracks. Make sure you do not touch the ignitor with your bare hands. If you do not visually see a crack, then you could have a furnace control board problem or a limit, rollout switch problem. The furnace's control board might not be supplying the voltage to the ignitor.If your furnace lights and the gas stays on for 8 to 10 seconds, then shuts right back off, then you need to clean your flame sensor with light sand paper or steel wool. You might need a new flame sensor, but most of the time they can be cleaned an will work well after cleaning.
