Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

When I turn on the heater and set it to the temperature I want, it goes off when it reaches the temperature. It is not merely in standby, it is off. It beeps repeatedly (when it shuts itself off after being on for a few minutes) at odd intervals. I have tried not setting a temperature for it, and it still goes off after a few minutes of being on. When it shuts off, it will not stay on when I try to turn it back on. I just bought it today. I don't see how it could have a clogged filter or anything, but I have no diagram of the heater or troubleshooting tips to help me sort this out.

My pilot stays on on my propane furnace but will not light up


The Little Giant units use a Unitrol gas valve very similar to a water heater in the home. #1,urn the Unitrol gas valve to the "PILOT" position to ignite the pilot. Depress the plunger and hold it down then push the spark igniter button until you can see the pilot flame ignite.
You have a lit pilot so this is not a problem for you.
The pilot light stays on continuously by design.
Once the pilot flame is established, you then turn the on/off/pilot valve to the "ON" position and set the thermostat to the desired temperature range., it should then fire its main burner until the desired temperature is reached. Once the temperature is reached, the main burner will shut off and the heater will go into a standby mode with the pilot flame still burning.
If you have turned the pilot valve to on and set the temperature high, it should come on, if not a new gas valve is required, they can be very difficult to replace due to rust.and most cases require a new unit,

Caravan does't reach operating temperature


No one ever said new means good. Try another thermostat. Make sure it is the recommended temp for the vehicle. I would spend the extra money to buy a dealer thermostat. What controls temp is restriction of flow thru the system until a set temperature is reached and the thermostat opens. Has to be a thermostat.

The heater light light comes on when first low circulation cycle is pressed but turn off when you press again but only for 20 minutes


It is supposed to. When the heater reaches the temperature you set, it goes off and the indicator light goes off too telling you the heater is off. Soon the temperature drops again and the heater, and the indicator light, comes back on.----This is the working procedure.------ The pressure switch, float switch all needs to be inspected.------- Also what is the exact brand and model of your heater.This will help, to get exact cause of the problem. --------- Keep updated, thanks.Helpmech.

The thermostat is set at a certain temperature, when water is heated to this temperature, the pilot light goes off and won't come on again when the water cools down unless I press the button at the high...


sounds like maybe a bad high limit switch. the high limit is set @ 112 degrees by default.
if it is turning your system off before it reaches that temperature then it is bad.

My Kitchen Aid Supuerba top covection oven will heat to set temp 350-400 then drop over 100 degree's but still read on digital display 350 or 400


how do you know it is dropping 100 degrees ?
If the set temperature is 350-400 the heaters will work untill the thermostat will read that the temperature is reached - after that the heaters will shut down and the temperature will drop...and after few minutes when the temperature goes below thw set point (in this case 350-400) the heaters will turn on again - this will happen for the duration of the timing you have selected (example 45 minutes)
