Paulin Brand Heater Question


Dobber

Question

I got this heater for Christmas and followed the directions EXACTLY but I still can't get it to light. The directions say "Open propane tank valve". Then "Turn regulator knob to HI position". Then "While holding a lit match at the hole in the screen of the heater, depress the plunger on the safety shutoff. After heater surface is lit, continue to hold the plunger in for about 30 seconds. Then release the plunger."
I've held the match on the screen hole long enough to smell propane but it still doesn't lite. Any ideas on how I can get this bugger lit? Will it just glow red when it is lit or will I see some sort of flame?
Thanks in advance for any help.

try holding the match towars the bottom of the screen. a small pilot light will be visible when the plunger is in, it heats the small rod next to it. when it detects the heat ( the rod) it will allow the gas to flow to the screen when the plunger is released. you should hear the 'roar' of gas burning and soon see the screen glow red. if the small rod does not detect the heat the pilot will go out when the plunger is released. its possible the rod needs to be adjusted closer to the flame, moved in shipping. check the tubing connection, from the rod, in to the main housing. if loose, will not allow full lite.

I had the same problem when I took mine out of storage this winter. The problem was the rod was bent back away from the screen and it would not stay on once I released the plunger thingy. I bent the rod in towards the screen and ...presto...it was fixed. Good luck.

I take it were talking about a sunflower IR heater? Are you using 1lb tanks or a 20 lb?
Aew you using a hose if so it takes a while for the propane to reach the heater.

I think I have the same exact heater your talking about. I have a problem with mine when using 1lb. tanks. It takes a long time for my screen to get hot and change to red and heat by itself. This only happens with new 1lb tanks. I have to hold the safety switch in for about 3 minutes before it gets hot enough to work on its own.

I have had similiar issues with my Paulin 3500 Heater / Cooker, especially when the 1 lb tanks are REALLY cold. I always get mine going by turning the knob to High, light it near the heating element, and keep the button depressed for about 20 seconds, let go of the button and make sure it stays red. When it is really cold and the 1 lb. tanks get "frozen" lighting it can take some effort.

i've had my heater and cooker for several years and i always gotta light it like 92python torches his up, when using cold 1 lb'ers. it's not what the book says, but it works. i've even had to tilt the unit a little to get it to "hold" until the thermocouple got hot enough to keep the main valve open. some times the flame rolls around a little, but it always lights. mine gets bounced around the sled, and its been bent up a few times. i have a coleman black cat that i use when its in the warmer temps. it lights crappy at times too. its catalytic and don't fume ya out. i use an otter magnum and the black cats ok sometimes. it's only like 4000BTU's. you can set the 1 lb. lp tank from the black cat in the coleman lp lantern base and cook on it too. but not as good as the paulin heater. later, keebo

      I think property management is more about communication than real estate as it requires regular interaction with property owners, tenants and staff. To create a base of loyal customers and ensure future growth in a competitive market, I recommend ordering the development of a mobile application fromhttps://djangostars.com/industries/proptech-real-estate/. Because managing a large real estate company that has been on the market for over 20 years can be a headache if you don't have the right software to manage it.

      Buying and selling, renting residential areas include many long-term labor-intensive processes. It is easy to optimize, speed up these operations - it is enough to order the creation of a mobile application for real estate.

      This is the right decision, because such software will allow her to work less and more conveniently. Therefore, find its own developers. In your city, if it is large, you can find such a team, if not, then on the Internet

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.
