Thermostat (little dime size heat measuring disk with heatproof wires) is probably a little too close to the heat source. Try to bend it back a couple thousands of an inch at a time and see if it goes longer.

Hi, first of all you need to get a hand full of 5 amp auto type fuses and install one on the hot leg of the 24 volt secondary side of the transformer. Just use 2 female crimp on connectors and put the fuse in the middle of the hot wire. Saves $$$$ on replacing transformers when you have a dead short on the low or high voltage side of any transformer, just a trick of the trade, food for thought. Fuses are much cheaper. On your electric unit, you may not need the common on this to operate the digital stat if it has batteries. This may be your dead short. On the Janitrol condenser, the red is your 24v as you no. They are using blue in place of yellow for cooling. Red is hot, W is heat, G for fan, and blue is cooling on this Janitrol. Keep in mind you are connecting to a heat-pump also, so make sure the wiring is correct. Are you installing this for secondary Heat?? More then likely, the blue common you have added is the dead short as the janitrol uses the blue for a cooling relay in place of yellow. Anyway, use the 5 amp fuse, trick of the trade to save on the transformers. Please keep me posted, as I know know you have this under control.

I have JANITROL GAS FURNACE that the MAIN LIMIT


First, replace the limit. What causes a furnace to cycle frequently would be either a malfunctioning thermostat, a shorted thermostat wire, a bad control or the thermostats heat anticipator is not set right.

Make sure that there are no wires connected to the G terminal on the circuit board. There is a blower relay on the circuit board that is probably bad, replace board.

Auxilliary heat just started blowing cold air


SOund like you heating element has a open limit or the sequencer is bad. Another thing that it may be is the element wire has broken. Either way it sounds like you need a technician to come out and repair.

Vent free wall heater starves for gas


The 3/4 pipe will provide enough gas provided that it does not have a lot of elbows in the run. The more elbows you have, the less gas you have at the end of the run.

I recommend that you call the company which provides you with the gas and have them come out and look at your problem. They will be able to analyze your situatioin and make a recommendation to you. This is a free service. Good luck with it.

Built in thermostat and fuels


diesel fuel requirs a hotter spark for ignition and burns pretty dirty, better off with K1 kerosene. You could change the ignition system to a mutifuel but it's not cheap and may not mount to your current houseing but would still work. As for restarting it is one of two things: the hight heat limit control or most likely teh CAD flame sensor, both of which you can get from Mr. Heater for less than 3 bucks each. the mount for the limit control is different but you can simply remount it to your heater mount. Same thing with the flme sensor, the wires are different but you can splice the to your wire harness and it will be fine. there is no wrong way to hook them up so don't worry about ground or hot.
