SOURCE: COLEMAN FURNACE BURNER NOT LIGHTING

There is a thermocouple "wire" that is supposed to be touching the pilot flame.
The thermocouple senses a flame (hot) and allows the heater to operate. If the thermocouple does not sense that the pilot is on, then it will not allow the furnace to operate.
Bend the thermocouple wire (or the pilot tube) so that the pilot flame is touchingg the thermocouple.

That shouls work now.

The air from the fan should not be blowing through the same cxavity that the pilot is in.
If it is, then you may have a leaking furnace whereby carbon monoxide may be seeping into your living quarters.
If the fix above works and the pilot stays on after the heater starts, then there is probably no leak.

Let us know the results ... post a comment or "RATE" this or another expert's solution.

SOURCE: my colman forced air propane

No, it's not normal.

There are two things that can cause the problem: Low gas pressure or poor air intake at the air shutter control on the burner(s). The air intake may simply be clogged with dust and lint. In which case, you can clean it with a vacuum that has a hose and crevice tool attachment. Vacuuming the burners will also help.

As far as the low gas pressure is concerned , be sure your tank has enough gas to carry the heater. It may be running out. Gas pressure will have to be professionally checked.

The cleaning part, you can handle.

Hope this helps resolve your problem.

I've done an analysis of our choice to install a wood burning stove, trying to...


Fuel oil prices have been very volatile over the past few years. The price of electricity has increased dramatically for some areas recently and it will increase for many other areas in the near future. LP gas or Propane has jumped around with the changes in the oil pricing. The prices of natural gas have been fairly stable recently, but as fuel oil and electricity rise in cost the natural gas prices will follow as more and more large use customers convert to it to save money.


Even though the costs of many other home heating fuels has continued to rise the price of wood has stayed the same or even become lower. If you have easy access to this cheap fuel then you may want to consider burning wood as the way to heat your home.

The one fuel that has remained stable or dropped in price has been firewood. Because of the slowdown in the housing market many loggers that have been very busy for years cutting for lumber mills, now have time on their hands and are cutting firewood for some side money to survive and to just stay busy. Many timber stands that were under contract to be harvested are still standing because they are not worth cutting. All this means that if you are thinking about burning wood to heat your home, then now is the time to do it.

Check out the many possibilities that are available to use to heat your home comfortably and effectively. There are many ways that you can use to burn wood and heat easily and efficiently. Each home and situation is different. Make sure that you get the right wood burning appliance for your home.

Siegler oil stove


You need to bleed air from line, look for bleeder screw and unscrew while trying to start unit. Don't unscrew all the way, when oil comes out, screw back in and unit should start. Screw should be on filter housing and one on burner motor (where fuel line comes in).

Alternative Heating Pellet Stoves and Pellet Inserts


Pellet stoves usually use wood pellets as their primary heat source. A pellet stove is defined as a stove that burns either compressed wood or biomass pellets to make heat to warm a home or other space.

Pellet stoves come as either free-standing units or fireplace pellet inserts which can be vented into an existing chimney. As an insert, you are able to replace your wood burning stove with this efficient and cost effect stove. Inserts also give the homeowner more of the look of a fireplace than that of a pellet stove. Pellet inserts can also be a great alternative for people who have busy lifestyles and are looking to get the beauty of a fire but prefer a cleaner burning renewable heat source.

Pellet stoves are freestanding structures that can give you the feeling that an old pot bellied stove did, tucked into a corner of a living room, den, or kitchen. Either the pellet inserts or freestanding stoves are a great alternative heating solution for keeping a house warm during the winter.

Many stove manufacturers recommend the using a corn and pellet mixture, but some are UL listed for many fuels other than pellets. These can include wheat, corn, sunflower seeds, and cherry pits.

Pellet stoves are a bit more efficient, burn cleaner, and are easier to use than conventional wood burning stoves. Pellet stoves often look very similar to wood stoves or fireplace inserts, however the similarities end there.

If you are considering burning alternative fuels then you will want to look into a pellet stove as a great way to heat your home. Pellet stoves and pellet insets have many great advantages over regular wood stoves that make them a practical heat for busy lifestyles.

I have a toyostove laser 30 and it leaks at the bottom (there is no parts or stove damage) and it does not burn cleanly. I will smell terrible oil fumes after every heating cycle. What should I do? I have...


If you have a A model Laser 30 you will have to take the stove apart to get to the fuel sump pipe. 9/16 wrench will tighten it. If it's a B model you can reach it on the lower right side of the heater.

Solid fuel stove linked to oilsystem with two zone


Put a temperature operated control (aquastat) on the piping of the wood stove so that if it is on, it will interupt the circuit wired to the oil burner at the X&X terminals of the boiler control.As the wood stove cools off, it will close the connection allowing the oil system to fire.

Laser 73 quits without warning - Joint gasket is always destroyed


I called a guy who used to work for Cliff's Envirotherm heating and asked him - he solved the problem over the phone. I did as he instructed and found the fire pot full of oil. He asked me if the stove had recently been serviced and when I said yes he told me to open it - check the firepot and call him back. He was correct the fire pot was full of oil. He informed me that if the burner mat isn't installed correctly the oil pools. He is coming out to my place tomorrow to correct the burner mat. Thank you for your return e-mail.
