You can reach the fan wheel by using a can of compressed air normally used to clean your compute keyboard. Make sure you hold a vacuum wand close to the heater when doing this to collect the debris. Using a small coffee stir straw, lubricate the end of the fan motor shaft with light motor oil. This will keep the motor alive for a bit longer.

It needs a service. The jets carbon up and when they heat up they stop the gas getting through. If you take it to a Gas Shop they will charge you around 90-00 to service it and all they will do is blow it out with compressed air. If you can get hold of an Air Compressor with an Air Blower on the end you can blow it out yourself. Remove the Gas Hose from the back and place the Air Blower into the hole where the gas goes through and hold down the ignitor switch to open up the jets. Give it a good blow out. Once you have done that give the candles a blow as they eget dirty also. You will see a white dust more than likely come out of them. If you want to give it a good clean out remove the cowling and clean (blow out) the inside of the Heater. The cowling from memory has only about 6 or 8 screws holding it on. That should take the top and sides off. I can't remember if you can remove the lower vent on that model - if so it will only be either 2 or 4 screws. Hope this Helps.

sounds like it has a faulty button. The "on" button on that model has a button on the front side which should hold the on button down after igniting. Check and make sure that it is there. I think it is a spring loaded button - maybe the spring has dis-lodged itself. If the button is faulty yhou can only replace it.
Hope this Helps

The thermocouple [s] require replacement, or in my experience try servicing the unit first. There is an injector for the main pilot and a secondary injector for the flame thrower ignition. Both of these are prone to blocking due to dust and can be enough to shut the unit down. Although usually this is thermocouple related as you are manually keeping the unit running when you hold down the button, if the tcouple is broken it wont send enough millivolts to hold the magnetic valve open when you release the button.
