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!

      I think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.
