This is either one of two thing.
Either you pump is clogged, or failing and not providing adequate flow, or the heat exchanger has a hole in it. I would hope that it is just a flow issue as the exchangers are very expensive.
Check the pump first, and also make sure there is no leaking water from the heater

Rv furnace stopped working


Quick call the installer to see if it is still under warranty. There is something wrong if the motor is being replaced every other year. Most of the motors should be lubed with fan turbine oil and not 3 in 1, nor detergent containing oils. If the wrong oil is used, the bearings will go south in 1 to 2 years.

I have an aqualink rs and my spa heater isn't working. I checked the propane and it is full. The heater was working 2 days ago. Now I turn spa and spa heat on the filter pump comes on and the red light...


If the Aqualink is calling for heat then the problem is most likley in the heater. Without more information I can't tell you much more but if nothing has changed in the last couple of days. Before you call anyone be sure to clean your filter and baskets. The heater need a set amount of pressure to run and if things are dirty it won't get that pressure. Good luck.

After a few minutes of burner heating the water, gas shuts off.


A couple of things to check:

If possible, remove the pilot gas assembly and clean the gas jet and thermocouple - they can get carboned up and stop working properly. Make sure the pilot flame and deflector is aimed properly and making the thermocouple glow red hot. If the problem persists, you may want to replace the thermocouple and also check the propane regulator.

Intertherm propane furnace makes popping sound when running


It sounds like you have a possible hole in the heat exchanger. Turn the heat off and turn the fan on. If you feel any air coming back out of the heat exchanger, you have a hole. A yellow flame is not a good sign. I would even consider having a service professional come out and take a look.

No heat


First figure out if your unit is a heat pump, (where the unit outside both heats and cools your home) or it may be a propane or nat gas furnace, it could also be a hydronic heater (the water heater heats the home) let me know what you find out.
