Mr Heater Big Buddy test - Epic failure

Postby Gunns » Thu Nov 22, 2012 2:08 pm

So I went to test my new emergency heat system. Hooked up the Mr Heater to a 20 lb tank, attached the twelve foot hose, turned on the tank, tested for leaks, found one and fixed it.

I then tried for over an hour to get it to work and I failed to do so. After a while I narrowed down to the Mr Heater hose. The little valve in the end that connects to the heater is stuck and won't open when screwed in.

So it's not the heater, I got it to work with one pounder bottles ok, but now I need to exchange the hose.

Thank god I test everything I buy, could you imagine, below zero, power goes out and like a smug turkey I hook it up and it don't work?

Yup. I bought a buddy knockoff brand. Would light & go out. Would not actually run. I had to exchange it. Good thing I didn't lose power in that snow storm. Reminds me: gotta check my genny
P!
