Patton PRH11 Buzzer Sounds on HIGH after 2 minutes
There is a round sensor under the heating elements which sets off the alarm when it thinks it is overheating on the PRH11. Unfortunately, a dirty sensor will fool it into reacting like it is overheated. I cleaned the sensor which was dark and revealed it to be a lighter goldish maybe brass in its original color. If your sensor is dark, it will continue to trip the alarm for overheating and will need to be replaced. If you were lucky like I was and can clean it, the problem should be resolved and it will operate like normal until it gets dirty again. This procedure lasted for 3 days and I had to clean it again. I believe I left the dirt on too long and now my sensor has tarnished plus I live in a rural area with significant dust requiring this recleaning every few days. I only used a damp paper towel with water to clean. Cleaning may work better with alcohol or a tarnish removal solution.

Yes, there is/was a recall on some Patton Heaters, but I don't recall if your model # is one of them. For more info search Google for Patton Heater Recall Notice and you'll find the correct site.

Where the filters located in a ge ambassador mark 2 furnace?
I purchased a home a GE Ambassador Mark // furnace.
Pilot will not light.
• Pressured gas at union.
• No gas at pilot opening.
• Pilot tube appears clear (can blow through tube)
Holding down pilot button, no gas.
Presuming a new gas value needed. Age of the heater has be debating replace valve, or replace heater. Plenty of rust below the burners. Hard to say if heat exchanger is worth the effort of putting on a value.
How do you test the value w/a meter to determine if value is bad?
How do you determine if replacement is needed instead?
Would there be a safety somewhere that would prevent gas from going to the pilot tube - something I could reset?
