Default Hurricane Flame out

Hurricane tries to start and flames out. Did this last week and mechanic had to reset hi limit switch. Cycled several times and worked fine. It is flaming out again. Something seems to be throwing the hi limit switch. I have no idea what that switch does but I know that he pulled the side panel of the furnace toward the front of the coach off to get at it. He had no idea what caused it to throw. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I've had Hurricane Heater flameout problems when the diesel level was below 1/3 of a tank. Have you opened the fuel airtrap valve?

If you are having shut downs due to high temperatures, have you checked the coolant fluid level and the circulation pump. If the level is low or it is not circulating properly it might cause overheating.

Good luck!

Bill , We at Bluebird Wanderlodge put a high limit switch at the fuel pump as the D.O.T required a safety switch. If that switch is too close to the heat exchanger it prematurely set off. There needs to be a gap between the limit switch and the combustion changer.. When you take off the side cover it is at the end of the combustion chamber ... Always Your Friend TECH.

I have plenty of fuel. Does anybody know what specifically the high limit switch is and what causes it to need to be reset. I do not know if it is high temperature problem or not. My mechanic went through it prettly good the other day and said the furnace looked in good shape. I will ask him tomorrow if he check fluid level and pump.

Johnny, You said if the switch is to close to the heat exchanger it will shut off. I would assume that the switch is where is has always been since the coach was built. There is always the strong possibility that I am not understanding what you said about the hi limit switch.

There was a bulliten that went out to the dealers and if that has not been preformmed that would be the reason you are having this problem.

If that is the case, has the switch gotten weak over the years and that is allowing the heat to effect it at this point in time. Is the switch easily from its present location and should it be changed out with a new switch.
