Mr buddy safety features

8 posts in this topic

I thought I read somewhere that you can modify the safety feature on the buddy heaters so they dont shut off If there not level or if you bump them. How do I do this?

Thanks, TravP

I have not heard of this, and am not sure it is a good idea. If you ever have a power outage, and bring it in the house for a little auxiliary heat, you might never wake up again. Same thing goes if you have it in a sleeper sometime.

IMO, not worth it.

I've seen on some site somewhere, a picture of a metal guard that the guy installed over the pilot assembly that is supposed to make it more wind proof. I can't tell you if it works as I've had zero problems with mine.

i'm not worried abut usng it for indoor use, I bought it specifically for ice fishing. Got sick of always trying not to burn things with my cooker. With the buddy,I just put it in the sled of my scout and fire it up. The problem is with the slightest bump it goes out. Also, I already know about the wind guard idea but thanks.

I read about (on another site) someone who "improved" the big buddy safety features, and then had the propane dump and start a fire on the floor of his shack. Luckily he was able to shut off the 20# tank he had it hooked up to and didn't get any more damage than a slightly melted sled floor.

I wouldn't recommend any tampering. Same as Gissert said. You could also burn through a portable pretty quick if it didn't shut off. I'll keep lighting mine if it goes out, so far not a single problem keeping it lit though.

Yea, I don't think those are mods you want to make. They can be a pain though.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
