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.

    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
    • Buddies from Michigan, MN, ND and WY got here Sunday, started hunting yesterday. Yesterday coulda gone better and coulda gone worse. We had 2 spots in a marsh that we were debating on setting up. Chose spot B. Had we chose spot A, we woulda been absolutely covered up in birds. There was about 1500 pins, teal and a few wigeon sitting there when we came by. at least we shot a couple nice bwt. Total take was 17. One drake bwt was already in the freezer when the pic was taken.    Day 2 was a diver hunt. Mainly had redheads come in, with one nice flock of scaup that we dropped 7 drakes out of. Had 3 flocks of buffies buzz the edge of the longlines but not commit to
