Your current purchase of fuel may have water in it. Go to an auto parts store and get a dryer/stabilizer for diesel fuel. That may temporarily solve your problem. I'd empty the heater tank and only fill with the treated fuel. The next time you buy diesel, go to someplace that sells to tractor trailer drivers. That way, you'll know the fuel hasn't set in the storage tanks that long.
This is dangerous! What has happened, is that wires have broken from use, right at the place where the wires enter the plug-- So, with less copper than the cord was desigened for, to carry the heavy current of the hedater-- that 'weak link' is dangerously overheating- Soo-- that spot will burn out-- and it could start a fire!
I recommend you unplug it NOW!
Are you handy at repairing things? You can buy a new plug at the local Hardware (even Walmart sells them)-- get a good one!-- for a heater draws A LOT of current-- so you will need a good one..
Let me know if you need help in replacing the old plug with a new one.
Untill monday, your furnace uses a 1/2 hp direct drive motor with at least 3 speeds. You can use a g.e motor or a fasco motor. Usually a fasco motor is cheaper around $75. Make sure you get the capacitor that goes with that motor. The box will tell you which one to use. You can get a part number from Harry Alter located in Lansing, IL. If you dont plan to buy from them cause you are not a contractor try other places in your area like a hardware store. Sunberg will sell to anyone and they are located thru out the usa.
By pass the safety device and you will experience a endless summer, my friend. Please do not even try to do this!
You probably have a spider ploblem in the gas supply line. Spiders love the smell of this gas and move in.
Disassemble the device (DO NOT DISASSEMBLE THE VALVE or the gas line to it!!!) and blow air through all hoses and pipes. Your propane dealer probably has a tool to clean the orifice. Go buy one ... while you are there, ask for his or her advice. If you get your gas at the BIG box store - go find the little BBQ store in your town - the guy that depends on selling grills and fireplace inserts for a living. He or she can help you.
Replace the thermocouple. It looks like a 1/8" diameter copper wire without any coating on it and goes from the gas valve to the pilot. They come in different lengths so bring the old one with you when buying a new one. Better hardware stores that sells gas space heaters will be a better chance at finding one.
