If you are pressing a small round switch with a tiny button in the center...means a bad heat exchanger. The heat from the exchangeris going where it is not supposed to and tripping a roll out switch. Have the exchanger checked for cracks or holes.....check vent pipe to make sure not plugged

I have a two year old Redstone 30,000 BTU propane wall heater. There is a lot of dust behind the unit. After running for awhile on the 2 setting, it shuts down and the pilot is extinguished.


If it is a wall unit, it has an over temp safety switch which is most likely tripping from dust preventing proper airflow across it . A good cleaning should cure this.

Spark plug fired,( Sears -30,000 BTU) starts and runs for approx. 30 seconds, then cuts off. The reset button does not reset for restart for about another 20 - 30 seconds. Then the unit will restart...


check and see if the heater has a high temperature limit switch. if it does it will shut the machine off until it cools down.. just replace it with a new one.

Just bought a Dayton electric heater to heat a 12' X 20' greenhouse in October. When the heater comes on it now makes a loud sound as if the fan is hitting something. I have it mounted horizonally near...


If it sounds like the fan is hitting something, It is likely you will have to get a step ladder, and look closely at what is making the noise-
Likely something fell in there-- and needs to be removed.

When you shut the thermostat down, does the fan stop instantly?

I have a 150,000 BTU NATURAL GAS HEATER. IT WILL RUN FOR 10 SECONDS AND QUITS. IT WILL NOT IGNITE AGAIN UNLESS YOU SHUT IT OFF AND RESTART


Hi,
The heater is not proving the flame...and shutting down on safety...
Check the flame sensor and all connections of the ground from the burner to the ignition control...
The control may also be bad...

The QL300 has a range of 20,000 to 30,000 btus. That shouldn't be too big for your 300 square foot room with high ceilings and a loft. It has a thermostat, so it will shut off when the room gets warm. 1 pound of propane contains about 21,000 btus, so you will be burning 1 to 1.5 pounds each hour that the stove is running.
