Question about HeatSafe ML250TPA Heater

1 Answer

Fluttering on 4th panel

When I turn my heater on, it seems to work fine. Then when it goes off automatically and comes back on, the 4th panel sputters and poofs, then all panels glow like it should. I took the noozle off and checked it out. It looked ok. No blockage. I took a small compressor on blew gently on the panels and the orfices. Tried again and still acts the same, when turning back on automaticlly. Bought last Spring, when the weather was getting warm. It acted the same, back then, but forgot about it. I did call either, ProComm or Habour Freight, but they didn't do me justice. Need help, Jim

It sounds like either the heater needs to be cleaned, but it sounds like you did that already. It also could be a crack in the panel. If it is a crack you will need to replace all the plaques because you cannot buy them separately. Sometime it can be expensive. I hope this helps!

Why is my 5 brick propanes sputtering on setting 2 also the brick that the fluttering is coming from does not burn as bright as the others.

Hello George, I would suggest you check the gas supply tubes after the gas control for any obstructions such as a spider web that might restrict the gas flow to the bricks.

It seems like you have a vacuum leak in a hose some where. Check under the hood for any rubber hoses that are dry-rotted, cracks, or sharp bends in any of them.

Loss of pressure on Kenmore 16322

I can tell you EXACTLY what is wrong. Remove the tank and open all valves to the grill. Reconnect the tank and turn it on just slightly. Relight the grill.
Ther is a safety device in the tank that needs to be reset. The only way to do it is removing the tank.

If you need further help, reach me via phone at
