Mr Heater hums/whistles

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Just a quick question: Lately I've noticed my Mr. Heater starting to make a high pitched humming noise. It used to do this only for a few seconds after first turning it on. Now it has started doing it more and more. It works fine, but it sure gets annoying. More info: it does it constantly on low, sometimes on medium, and very little on high. I'm thinking it's got to be something to do with the amount of oxygen it is getting because this weekend a couple times when I zipped open my door and the wind blew in, it stopped right away. I know oxygen sometimes gets low in small spaces, but I have run other Mr. Heaters in my house without this problem occurring. Any recommendations? Is it going to blow up soon? blush Should I maybe just change out the thermocoupler? Thanks in advance!

That sound is the wind sucking the last out of the 2008 Packers Season. The fat lady is singing. Its over!

Changing the thermocouple won't help.

With your head away from the sunflower, put a finger over the air intake for a quick second. That would be the 1/2" hole on the stem of the heater. It'll flame up a little bit when you do that so watch that cheesehead. What your doing by changing the air for that split second interrupts the resonating that is going on.

Thanks Frank. I'll give it a try. I am left to take your Packer ribbing with a red face high hopes for next year. You are right. JH

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
