Problem with Mr Heater Cooker

4 posts in this topic

The heater lights and works great for about 2-5 min. then it make a loud hissing noise and starts spewing out a flame instead of the controled burn in the screen. This happens when using a 1lb. bottle for fuel. Is this thing toast or is there a fix for this problem? HTB

There is a fix. Either your air intake has some obstruction like spider web or the orifice is dirty. Unscrew the main tube. The area where the air mixture hole is where the orifice is. Its brass. Use a small wire, (thinner then a bread twister) and clean out the orifice. Don't force the wire or you'll make the hole larger.

Ya, what surface said.

This will happen when you put fingers on air intake holes on main tube going up to head of heater. I just read in my new grill's instruction about how spider webs can be a concern in a gas/vapor operated system. I never knew that.

Good luck!

If the 1# bottles get to cold,(sub-zero weather), you will have problems also!

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
