Paulin Heater/Cooker doesn't run off a bulk tank

Question

Hookmaster

I have a Paulin 3000 heater/cooker which looks like a Mr. Heater heater/cooker. It will run fine on the 1# disposables but when I try and run it off a 20# tank, no gas is coming through to the burner. The gas is coming through the hose since I depressed the seal to check. This hose is a Mr. Heater brand hose not a Paulin. Do you think the the seal on the end of the hose is recessed too far and is not being depressed by the nipple on the valve?

Are you useing a tank with an OPD valve on it. If you are try taking the hose off the tank, I think this resets the valve, then put the hose back on the tank and the heater, open the valve on the tank very slowly until you here the hose filling with gas, once the hose is full you can open the valve the rest of the way. I had this problem once the OPD valves can be touchy.

Hookmatster;

I have the same set up and have “NO PROBLEM” with using the 8-foot hose on my 20 pounder. I don’t know which hose I have though??? This could be the problem, not sure. Are you setting the tank outside where it is extremely cold?? I have had propane not flow when it gets really cold (Not sure the exact temp where it stops flowing) but it does make a difference.

Good Luck Hook!!!

The tank has an OPD valve and it was 15 degrees out when I tested it. The gas is flowing from the tank and through the hose since when I insert a screw driver in to the end of the hose that hooks to the heater gas comes out. I'll call Paulin and see what they say.

I have to really tighten my hose adapter in tight or mine won't open the safety valve. Give it a try.

Well I compared the "nipple" on the Paulin heater to my Mr. Heater Junior. The Mr. Heater Junior's nipple is probably 1/8 to 3/16 inches longer than the Paulin. So the nipple on the Paulin isn't depressing the seal on the end of the hose. I am going to try and buy a Mr. Heater/Cooker valve and see if that fits on the Paulin.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
