I had this same exact problem on an 89 Holiday Rambler. The control board was bad on it. I tried everything before replacing it and that was the issue. It had something to do with the sail on the unit which sent a signal to the control board.

Hi , I have a Electronic pilot lighting system on my RUUD package unit. The pilot light flame keeps blowing out or is not working properly. I removed the panel to look and see what was wrong. I could not see any faults. The sparker worked just fine, the gas line tubing was fine no blockages( took it off to inspect it) every thing looked good. Worked fine for the last couple of weeks and now it will not ignite the pilot light to light the rest of the propane gas to heat the house. I tested the fl


Sounds like you have checked most things. A pilot will go out if it is dirty, if the gas valve is not holding or if the senser is dirty or bad. Remove the pilot and clean out the small orifice inside. Check all electrical connections, clean the senso ... Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner

Pilot light won't stay on when trying to switch on heater. Unit was serviced in August and was working recently. If the pilot light does stay on, it will eventually go out, so unable to use heater. It would appear that some adjustment has been set just 'on edge' as the heater was ok before servicing and cleaning. Baxi Brazilia 8000st

I have spark, I have gas, the fan is working, but will not light. Am I supposed to be using a propane regulator for this heater, or just direct from propane to inlet on the unit..... the solonoid is opening to allow the gas flow, spark is working for a short time after turning the switch on, just not firing.... do you think I need a new igniter, if so, where can I purchase one..... I would like to get a owner's manual for this unit.... thanks

My LG ducted reverse cycle air con went off over Xmas (when it was 42C). It seems to be working again but I have a small green light and a small red light (flickering) on the power board. Should the red light be off? I've tried turning off the power at the mains and at the unit but both lights are still on. Model number ABUW426KSAO.

I have a dometic ac with remote in our 2005 Keystone Zeppelin z261. We are camping in 95 degree Florida. While taking a nap, the ac remote quit working with the unit running wide open cold. I changed batteries in the remote, no change. The control panel on the unit itself showed the green light for cold, but the control did not respond. Turning off the main breaker made the unit turn off, reseting the breaker made the ac come back on. When I unplugged the modular cord connecting the control pane

Hi I have a Rinnai RCE-29H (gas heater) that I just got off a friend and it is working fine however the Filter light comes on from time to time. Once the light comes on it generally stays on for a while. We have pulled off the gauze from the back and washed it and the light still comes on....??? Are there any other filters that need to be cleaned? The unit has been in storage for a while prior to me acquiring it. I am trying to get my hands on an instruction / user manual for this model. Do y


No, Tina there's only the one filter. However, the filter should never be removed for cleaning while the heaters electronics are ON. If you're still getting the filter light. Turn the heater Off, using the Master On/Off Switch and unplug the electric ... Air Conditioners

Carrier 48nmx030 heater does not work. A/C does. Fan does. Bypassed thermostat and changed settings on thermostat to engage the unit. Main circuit board clicks suggesting that the switch on the board is functioning. There is no response at the igniter module at all. Could the igniter module be defective? There is no attempt by the igniter module to self start the heater.... no clicking or gas movement.


Yes it is most likely it has gone out.The igniter is usually the first thing to go.Moister and heat take a toll on the unit.You need to put a volt meter,(at least 24 volt).Not knowing the volt,off hand 12 or 24 volt,but the volt meter gauged for at ... Air Conditioners

I have a Fedders portable air conditioner Model AEP09D2B. I have been using the heater feature at night lately. I turned it off when I got up this morning. About an hour later, it began to beep and the Warning light was blinking. I unplugged it and went to work. When I got home, I plugged it back in. The Warning light resumed blinking and the unit began to beep again.


Do you have the owner's manual for your unit to see what the warning light is trying to tell you? I looked all over to down load one from the net to see what it meant and I can't find one.It may be a simple as the filter needing cleaned a ... Fedders AEP09D2BCOM Portable Air Conditioner

2001 Coleman Niagara Elite folding trailer: Cannot light the water heater. (Have not used the unit in 13 months but it lit just fine last year.) We have held down the pilot button and held the flame at the ignition point, but it is not lighting. The stove burners work fine so the LPG is flowing OK.


You may have one of two problems; The pilot orifice is very small and allows only a limited flow and any air trapped in the gas supply takes some time to bleed out while you are holding down the pilot button. Or the pilot orifice may be plugged in w ... Coleman Air Conditioners

No, you probably will not have to replace the entire unit. It may have just fried some of the circuitry, that can be replaced. But, trouble shooting it and repairing it should be done by a pro. They can advise you of the cost of repair, as opposed to ... Air Conditioners

I have a Mistral Inverter Reverse Cycle Split System Air Conditioner. MSS.3INV. The trouble we are having is the cooling will work for half an hour or so and the compressor will turn off leaving only the fan going and the comporessor and timer light flashing. This hapens before the desired cooling temp is reached. You can switch the main power off to the unit and back on again after a few minutes have past and the unit will operate again in cooling mode and then just do the same thing. The gas

Please advise how to correct the problem. Thanks!

I have a GE PTAC I have been working on. Our units are run by a wireless wall thermostat which sure doesnt help matters. Anyway at first I had nothing then got power lighting up on the circuit boards for the wireless. No power going to either the heater or the compressor. Changed out a couple circuit boards from spare parts and got power going to those now but still doesnt operate. I've checked the transformer and the capacitor. Checked the fuse and changed out thermister. Nothing. Any ideas

I have a few issues with an old probably dinosaur Coleman Presidential III 7995a-856 Heating unit. I've had 3 different repairmen look at it and they're clueless. The main pilot will light and stay lit until I turn on the heater from the thermostat. It'll click and the intense flame will begin shortly after the 3 min. delay. It will stay lit for approximately 2-4 minutes and it'll blow itself out. If I'm lucky, it'll stay lit and the fan will sound like it's starting but is tempermental. Some
