Mr. Heater problems

2 posts in this topic

I started having problems with my heater this past weekend and need some advice. The heater would burn okay then all of a sudden it would flame up. It continued this for hours and never did clear up. What could the problem be? I run it from a 10lb. tank and hose to the house. I have some ideas, but wanted to know if anyone else that might have experienced this problem.

Is the hole for air mixture clean? Is the tank sitting upright?

A dirty orifice could be the cause. When not enough fuel is sent to the sunflower it can't burn hot enough or clean enough. Instead of a hot orange glow you get flame. That flame isn't burning clean and your putting a ton of CO into your shelter. Don't use it like that.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
