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.

Masterbuilt Smokehouse model 20070712 won't smoke wood chips at 225 degrees

I had this exact same problem with my Masterbuilt Smokehouse even when brand new. I notice there is some variability in the space between the top surface of the heating element and the bottom surface of the wood chip box. I measured about 1/4 inch between the two surfaces when the heating element was seated bottomed out and touching the wire grill below it. What I did to fix the problem was to gently (make sure everything is completely cold before doing this) lift up the end of the heating element farthest away from where it enters the enclosure just a little bit so that when you put the woodchip box in where it is supposed to go, the top surface of the heating element will now be in contact with the bottom surface of the woodchip box. This arrangement allows much greater heat to heat the wood chips during the part of the heating cycle when the heating element is on (naturally the heating element cycles on and off to regulate whatever temperature your are targeting for your food being cooked). Now, because of this contact, every time the heating element comes on, enough heat will enter the woodchip box to keep the chips ignited. My next step is I am going to put a small 1/4 inch thick piece of metal beneath the heating element and the rack that is under it to force the heating element to stay sitting 1/4 inch higher so that it is always in contact with the lower surface of the woodchip box. Making these improvements allowed me to continuously get smoke when the big smoke box was at 225 degrees F.
Without making this fix, the unit would stop producing smoke at 225. Hope this makes sense and helps you.

Reliance 606 Hot water Heating element (Pilot light) won't stay lit

Gas water heaters don't have elements, so I am confused about what type water heater you have..
Look on the side of tank for the label.
Find the brand, and type. Does it show BTUs? Or does it show wattage?
Then re-post question with this information, for best possible answer.
Also post question on Tank forum.

When i compress the propane knob for the pilot light, the whole element has propane run through it. Then when i let go of the pilot to run gas to the element, the flame goes out...? Pls help. Its brand...

Hold the knob down for at least three minutes after lighting the pilot. This give the thermocouple plenty of time to heat up and should stay lit.

I light the piuolot button and when i let go of the pilot button the pilot goes out does not light burner wont stay lit

When you light the pilot lite you have to hold the button down until it gets the element hot enough to stay lit. If you hold down the button and lite the pilot and let it go right away it will go out. What to do is hold down the button and lite the pilot and continue to hold the buttn down for about 45 seconds to a minute then let it up very slowly and you will see if it is going to go out by the flame getting smaller as you let up on the button. If it does start to get smaller conitnue to hold it again for a few seconds and repeat the process of letting it up slowly. when the control element gets to the right temperature it will stay lit then turn your valve to "ON" and the fire will start up and continue to heat the water.
