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!

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
