Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Loaned my heater to neighbor, he ran it out of fuel. put more fuel in and it started spitting raw fuel and firing intermittently. I cleaned igniter plug and blew out igniter hole and fan motor,generally everywhere I could get compressed air. It started again and runs but continually sputters, but no longer spits out raw fuel. any ideas how to make it run smooth again?

Heater is cycling on and off, less then one minute cycle time between cycles. Sometimes SPK code comes on and stays on without firing. Have shorted water press switch with no effect. Pretty sure gas...


The SPK Code, indicates that there is power to Igniter and should be producing a Spark to ignite fuel! If this is actually the case, then it is NOT a safety sensor issue, The igniter serves a dual purpose: produce a spark, and then CONFIRM a flame is consuming the fuel. If it does not get a proper Milivolt reading, then gas valve will shut off, hence a cycle occurs. Not enough reading is the same to the heater as no reading! Safety issue. If gas valve stays open, and no flame to consume raw fuel, it will build up and accumulate then when ignition takes place, it go...BOOM! Not Good.
Either insufficient fuel supply/pressure or faulty igniter. It's also not a Gas Valve. It's a simple switching valve, either open or closed.

Bang at start up pentair heater


What kind of bang, like an explosion? if so, then a burner orifice or more than one orifice or the burners, are plugged. What is happening, raw fuel is not reaching hot surface igniter quick enough. The raw fuel then collects from a further orifice, and by the time that it reaches the hot surface igniter, there's a little bit too much fuel, and there is an explosion. Which is not normal. You need to clean the orifices and the main burners.

Generator back firing from inlet manafold


Your symptoms are from running lean. Foam air filters put debris in carb jets. Check all the carb passageways and jets. Always start with a new plug.

No,4 plug not fireing changed plug wires.new coil.plug ran good for 100 miles then 4 stop again


You would need to figure out if it is a problem inside the cylinder or with something like the crank-cam sensor firing the coil. I would change the plug again to see if it works for a few days.
Could be a problem with the fuel injector or a vac leak if the plug is firing but no power from that cylinder.

Front cylinder dumping raw fuel, exits under exhaust pipe. Cylinder not firing.


pull the vacuum line from the regulator and turn the key on and see if gas drips or sprays out from the nipple on the regulator if so that's your problem the fuel is going threw the line into the intake port

I have a 95 Road King that isn't running right, it


Backfiring out of the exhaust is usually an ignition problem. Unburned fuel is getting into the exhaust system because it's not being ignited in the cylinder. When the engine fires on that cylinder again, it ignites the raw fuel in the exhaust causing the pop that people call a backfire. I'd investigate the ignition system. Connect a timing light to each of the spark plug wires if it has a single fire ignition or either of them if the ignition system is the stock dual fire. Start the engine and watch the timing light to tell if the engine is missing as the light will miss a flash.

Good Luck

When heater starts it does not always light, I get a C3 code


the ignitor is faulty, mine also did that and I noticed one night that it was shorting out right from the ignition box. I put in a new ignitor and flame sensor and it's fine now. All ignitors are basically the same you just have to do some creative wireing. reddyparts.com still has most parts for your heater.

Clicks but wont fire


make sure the high voltage lead to the sparkplug isn't touching anything metal on its way to the plug. the clicking may be the high voltage discharging to a metal part, not the plug. those wires age during use.
