This sounds to me like the operating thermostat is going open prematurley. Check the sensing bulb end to ensure that it is not out of place and touching a heat riser. If this is not the case most likley you will need to replace the operating thermostat.

Hi there

On these heaters there are a number of safety cut out switches and some are not obvious,
1. If fitted I guess they have changed the thermocouple ( this sits in the pilot flame and connects to the gas valve) if they have changed the gas valve.
2. There is normally a control link to the heater to prevent it starting if the pump is not running or the pressure is too low. This is usually a wire that runs through the pump motor overload(if fitted) and the inlet or outlet water pressure switches ( if both fitted) and then to the time clock (again if fitted) and to the thermosts on the heater.

I hope this helps, but please come back to me if you need more info

Regards
Gordon

Sure is. You simply need to purchase a to 3/4" to 1/2" Male to female reducer. You didn't mention if your current gas piping is flexible copper, rigid black iron pipe or flexible stainless steel. In any event, get the one that matches your current gas piping. If all of your other gas appliances require an individual regulator, then you'll need one for the tankless water heater. If in doubt, contact your propane provider.

Hope this helped answer your question and provide a solution.

I HAVE A THERMOHEAT CABINET PROPANE HEATER...... LATELY IT SMELLS....NOT OF PROPANE ..BUT LIKE A RICH BURN ..WHY?


If it hasn't been cleaned and serviced on a regular basis (at least annually), that more than likely the problem. The dust, lint and/or pet hair as infiltrated the heater and is clogging things up. Particularly, the burner. Thoroughly cleaning the heater inside and out will more than likely solve your odor issues. Also, check your propane tank to make sure it's not running low on gas. That can also cause the odor issue.

Hope this helps to solve your problem. Please let me know.

AC runs for 5 minutes and then circuit breaker


What else do you have running on hydro while AC is running? Such as coffee maker, microwave, water heater, fridge. That 30 amp breaker is your main breaker I assume, or breaker on pole your plugged in to. Keep in mind your AC will normally draw approx. 15-17+ amps momentarily when compressor kicks in to cool, then drop back to 12-15 amps when running normal. If your AC is drawing too much current, then you would only normally trip 20 amp breaker for AC in your panel. Try switching other appliances to gas operation while running AC, such as water heater, and fridge. Make sure incoming voltage is up to specs as well . (115-120 volts)
If water heater takes 5-8 amps, and fridge takes same when they are calling for power, you'll be close or over the 20amp mark when you consider your on board converter etc. as well. That only leaves approx 10 amps for AC that requires approx 15 amps to run, and up to 20amps when compressor kicks in. If you switch all those other items over to propane, and it still happens, then a current draw test should be done on AC unit to see if perhaps a capacitor is faulty, or possible compressor faulty.

Have a dynaglo portable propane heater, it will light, but after a few minutes it sputters and stops working. it will relight but does the same again. dan


You will have to take out the fuel line to get to the filter or clean out the port at the carbuerator. It sounds like the fuel flow is not ample enough to continue burning

Fan continues to run after desired heat is established , I blew out the line at pilot and the unit is taking 10 to 15 mins for fan to cut off


Looks like your fan limit switch may be bad. It fits into the warm air side of the furnace. It tells the fan to come one and off when the heat is blowing over the limit switch. Now if that limit is defective it also will affect the lighting of your heater being it electronic ig-niter or just common thermocouple type controlled pilot light. Now above your post I think the wong information was given about your gas heater, so giving you the exact information will be difficult. Now from hearing you explanation of the problems, I hope my information was a help to you, Thanks Sea Breeze
