Customer Question

Im having problem starting my heater. I follow the instructions and can light the pilot i think. Its a tiny blue flame inbetween two little intake lines in a tiny hole? And the flame ignites the inside and it roars but the blower dont run. There is a swith for on and off on the right side of the blower and on top of that box is a button. I push it and the blower runs for 30 seconds and pushes heat. Then it shuts off and nothing.
JA: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?
Customer: Not lights
JA: What year is your Pilot?
Customer: Its on the left side of the blower
JA: Are you fixing your Pilot yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Only to light it and use the heater
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Its a 79 dodge sportsman brougham rv and the model number heater is fa7218
