So I never tested my heater when I bought it , and am just getting around to it, of course I cant get her working! I have read a bunch of threads on here and downloaded a few of the Suburban manuals hoping I could get her fired up, but no luck yet, and none of the manuals look like my heater when I take the vent off.
First of all I was hoping someone could help me figure out what model Suburban heater I have. I have read a lot about the NT12SE on the forum, but mine looks like it says NT12 MEF?!? Is that a thing?
Second, maybe you have some more insight in how to fire her up. I was plugged in and had the propane
on, all other lights
off as to prevent lag in the fan, ran the burners on the stove to get air bubbles out of the propane
lines, and check to make sure the gas line to the furnace
was on. I also cleared a few wasps nests out of the vents! Then when I turned the thermostat on the fan kicks on, goes for a few seconds, clicks to try and ignite, and nothing happens. I let it cycle through 3 attempts to ignite and nothing, turned it off at the thermostat and then tried it again. Still nothing. I did this a few times through a few different days hoping that it would cooperate another day...
I opened up the little window that is held closed by a wing nut and couldn't smell any propane
, I was thinking that maybe no gas was getting to the ignitor?
Any thought or advice would be great! I had an RV repair guy look at it and all he did was run it through a few cycles with no luck, and complain about how old my trailer was the whole time.
Told me to just take out the heater and throw it away!
Thanks in advance!
