Paulin Heater Problem

7 posts in this topic

I’ve got a heater problem with my Paulin 3500 heater/cooker. I was running it on Saturday in my garage and it quit working on me…. I told paulin all the specifics of what happened and they said what tends to happen is that spiders and insects can crawl down one of the holes in the frame of the unit and clog the orifices. My problem is how to fix it. Any place I take it to get fixed, if I could find one, would probably charge me more money in labor than if I just purchased a new one. What really stinks is that the unit is less than a year old.

Any ideas are appreciated.

Joe

First are you sure your not out of propane? smile.gif
Will light up again if you push in the thermocoupler botton. If so bend the the mounting tab closer to the sunflower. If it wont stay lite after doing this you need to replace the thermocoupler.

If the gas doesnt run with the button pushed in then I would guess that your orfice is pluged. There easy to take apart and clean. Maybe paulin has a place you can send it if you dont want to do it yourself.

Dont take it apart till you try what we suggested. Not sure what size the orfice is but a bread twister might fit.

When you say orifice, where are you referring to exactly? Where the vertical silver tube connects to the brass fixture on top?

Please excuse my ignorance...I really appreciate your help.

I pulled mine apart last year. Nothing to it actually. Made sure the orfice was clear. I don't actually remember why I pulled mine apart thou. Like ST said, if you hold the button in and hear gas (or stays lit) it's not plugged and your Tcouple is the problem.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
