    any one have problems with propane tank top heater going out and sounds like its blowing air through it. mine does this now after using it for about 10hrs total now it works for like 2 minutes and then does this.
     
  2. Mine did the same thing, but I had a one burner heater. It would actually make the shield start glowing red!:crazy:

    The little plunger safety valve thingy was no good and I had to replace it. I am not sure how this is setup on the dual burner however.:confused2:
