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.

    • The older Toyota trucks with the 4 banger and the stick were good for off-road, too, but they were even worse than Jeeps in the rust department...    
    •   They're a little different because they had a boxed frame, which tended to collect mud and hold moisture, so it's tough to find an older one with a solid frame.  The frame usually rotted out ahead of the rear wheels.   http://www.carproblemzoo.com/jeep/wrangler/frame-rust-problems.php
    • Mostly body rust. Rocker panels, fenders and the rear corners. Not really any different than any pickup truck.
    • I am out in MN this morning.  Flock gobbling in the valley below me.  Going to start with my bow this time.  Have a few days to hunt.  Oh and Sutty is with me.  Set up across the field with one of his daughters.  Trying to talk him into picking up a youth tag for her.
    • Time to try again.  Not a sound yet. Next day and a half is about turkeys!
    •   They're definitely a nice rig for the backroads, and they hold their value very well if they're kept in decent shape.  The biggest issue with the older Jeeps, including CJs, is they are serious rusters - including frame rust.   Not sure if they ever resolved the rust issues or not with the newer models.  A buddy of mine has a Wrangler Unlimited, and he really likes it.  I think he has a little too much invested in it to use it for an off-road rig, though, so it probably qualifies more in the "fulfilling childhood dreams" category than a true bush buggy....              
    • Was doing some work in the woods today and found these. Of course I stopped and spent two hours looking for more, but this was it. Oh well, will probably be the earliest I've ever gotten to eat them.  
    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
