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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
