Question about Heating & Cooling
Sometimes the pilot will light and the heater will come on and then it will go off and we have problems getting it to come back on. The gas company came and looked at it and said they fixed it but it is worse now than it was.
Hi there - seems you have the classic problem of the heater being clogged in the gas lines. Not knowing what sort of heater it is makes it a little hard. If you can get a compressor to the heater and blow the lines out with compressed air. Best way is to pull off the back panel or front panel to reveal the gas lines. Find the inlet gas line and unscrew it and blow compressed air through it which should clear it.
Sometimes you can clear them by blowing compressed air through the pilot light line and also through the top gas feeder line to the candles or heating elements. If you have candles keep the compressed air away from them as they become brittle over time and can break. You don't want to repair one problem only to create another problem.
Hopefully the compressed air will clear the lines and it will work like a new one. Hope I have been able to help you.
