Ice Castle Heater Problem

5 posts in this topic

My heater in my ice castle won't shut off. If my batteries have a low charge could this effect the thermostat. Has this happened to anyone else. Thanks

unless you have a defective themostat------pull one of the wires on the t-stat and see if the furnace shuts down

Or if the wires are touching each other it won't shut off.

I had the same issue when I built my house. I found out that I stuck a staple through the wires and they were grounding out. Pull the thermostat wires at the heating unit and run completely separate wires to your t-stat. See if that fixes your issue.

Plus, note that when those units shut down, the fans run for a couple of minutes to cool themselves down. It should cycle completely off after that.

I second the fact that the fans run for a while after the heater kicks out. It might be that before the fans shut down the temp drops and the thermostat kicks the heater in again.

If the above suggestions don't work, try opening the window a little further, (I'm assuming that you are cracking a window for some fresh air, don't run your furnace without doing that) I found that if I open the window on the wall that the thermostat is on about 1/3 of the way the furnace regulates better and shuts off when it get's up to temp.

I also set my thermostat at 65 instead of 70 like I would do in my home. It still heats to 70 or so. When I set it at 70 the furnace runs constantly.

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
