Question about Heating & Cooling
Well depending on the type of heater it sounds like the flame sensor needs to be cleaned or replaced. There is a rod that sits in the flame that has a single wire connected to it. Pull the flame sensor out and clean it with a piece of light grit sand paper or emery cloth and put it back in and the furnace should sustain flame.

Just go to Tate Heater repair shop for heaters and replace the Thermal Switch. The part number for the Switch is 113848-01. See if they have one if not they can order it for you. I just fix mine and it is now it purs like a kitten. Just the way the manufacture intended. I went also went down the road of buying a new thermocouple to find out that I did not need it. My advice change the less expencive Thermal Switch first in your part replacement list.

When you say that the fan starts then stops I assume you also mean that the burner starts and stops. If this is correct and the unit is more than a couple of years old you probably need to change the filter in the back and set the pump pressure. Both the filters and the gauges to set the pressure can be found at www.reddyheat.com along with a good explanation as to why you need the gauges. The pressure is set by bleed air pressure and must be exactly 3.5 psig. The gauge is the only accurate way to do it. The filters clog and change the pressure. When the difference is enough the unit will not run. Now with that said there are several other things which you should check. Check the fuel tank for water. Remove any you find. Remove the cover on the right side as you look at the unit from the front and remove the circuit board. Check for cracked connections. If you find any resolder them and reattach the board. That should take care of the unit and get you back to making heat. Let me know if you need anything else.
Thanks for using FixYa
