Question about Heaters
I have a ready heater that is pretty much automatic. Plug and play if you will.
it started to go bad a week or so ago and i thought i could solve the problem myself. Thinking logically, first i tested the polarity of the igniter and no problems found. I then cleaned and replaced the fuel nozzle, same problem.
Lastly i replaced the photocell and still can't keep it going.
Heater lights right away but goes out after about 20 seconds or so.
Guess I'm not a heater mech after all. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Check pressure of the air compressor should be in the 3.0 to 3.5 range. not enough won't suck fuel, too much will blow out the flame. igniter either lights or it doesn't no in between. does the main flame come on?
