Customer Question
My reznor garage heater...

My reznor garage heater won't ignite , it will some times for about 20 sec and then goes out . is there a common problem

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Just started about a week ago

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I know a bit about them . if I can't I will get a tech

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The unit is about 8 yrs old

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat? And what about the unit's filters?

I disconnected the wires on the thermostat and joined them . the unit cuts in and I can hear it go through the cycle but won't ignite . I did think there was a filter in a suspended garage heater
