space heater playing up


Postby terry38102 » Wed Apr 23, 2008 9:43 pm

hi there i have a propane space heater i use in the garage it is quite old all the model numbers are worn away so i am not sure what kind it is but it is a easy heat anyway when i switch it on for a start it will work fine for about a hour or so then it will cut out the fan stays on but no gas coming through and it wont light again

you have to leave it about 30mins before it will start again then after an hour it will cut out again just wandered if anyone knows anything about them and can suggest anything that may cause this to happen

i live in the north of scotland and even this time of year it can br a bit chilly

thanks

There is a little disc like thing normally with two screws which operates when over temp. If the regulator has been turned up at all this may trigger switching it off simple way is to turn down gas a little.
