Re: The Gas Heater Saga

The wire came off, I resoldered it back on but it's just melting the solder, yet still running

Re: The Gas Heater Saga

I now have a new problem. The overheat switch has failed, but weirdly, the heater works, it just doesn't cycle on/off, just constantly on.

Re: Should I do it fellas?

Love the "tin Man" repair. I might have to do that as well, it would certainly continue the semi-steampunk look I am going for where all chrome will be copper.

Re: Corvair Gas Heater to LP conversion.

Having done this I assume you know more about these gas heaters than I do. I need to pick your brain, (kinda ASAP) on these devices. I have one, it was working, but I got stupid. I'm now trying to solve a problem. If you are on FB please contact me over on COG or email me directly please.

Gas Heater Comb. Air Blower Motor

My Combustion Air Blower (CAB ) has been making horrible noises lately and now the heater is not fully firing. I've narrowed it down to either something to do with the CAB not turning fast enough and therefore not opening/closing the points correctly or its the nozzle, which may have become clogged....

The Gas Heater Saga

In the last few week I think I may have become the leading expert in gas heaters in mid-coast Maine. I've driven from Trenton, to Bangor, to Searsport just to find someone that might know even just a little more than me on my quest to have functional heat and defrost in my daily driver this winter. ...
