Try taking a can of compressed air and spray in the vents in the front and the back of the heater. The heater has a sensor that gets dusty and causes it to shutoff to prevent overheating.

The heater should function properly once the dust is blown off the sensor.

Good luck!

Toro porta heater only stays lit for 5 or 10 minutes then the heat goes out but the fan stays running. Re-light it and it does the same thing.


The fan will continue to run after the flame goes out to prevent the element from overheating from residual heat. It should stop after a minute or two, when the element is cooled down.

It could be a venting problem. Make sure the vents are clean. When it's not lit, air gets into it. When you light it, it slowly uses what air it has and it starves for oxygen.

It could be a misadjusted thermostat and it's turning off before you think it should. Try setting it higher and see if it runs a bit longer. My thermostat on my house furnace runs 10 degrees higher than it should, so I just keep it 10 degrees lower than it says.

If you have a standing pilot that wont stay lit and you have to keep relighting it, it can only be a couple of things that will do this.
1. Try tighting the thermocouple at the gas valve. (this is a thin copper line that goes from the gas valve and goes to the pilot light.)
2. Make sure that the tip of the thermocouple is in the pilot light flame.
3. Make sure that the thermocouple is clean.

Make sure that the thermocouple is well into the flame. Check to make sure the other end is secure into the gas valve. Check for any poor connection both gas and electric. If the LP cylinder is icing up, it is a vaporizing problem and the heater is sucking the available gas out of the cylinder faster than it can vaporize. You will need a larger cylinder.

It sounds more likely that your fan is not pushing enough air across the heat exchanger. If you have a multi-speed fan, I would suggest increasing the blower speed. Otherwise you will continue to cycle on and off on the high limit. Also make sure that you do not have any return or supply vents blocked off, as this often times will cause the same problem. Hope this helps.

Heater turns on, but intermittenly


Turn the power to the furnace off and then back on and see if it resets. If not you may have a bad ignitor or dirty sensor.
Hope this helps.

No Heat!


Sometimes too much dust around the heating elements can cause the heater to switch off to prevent a fire. Check for dust build up first. You can try using a can of compressed air that can be found at many electronic stores.
