    Hi there, i have a problem with my gas heater. When I start using the heater, I stays on for a few minutes then goes out. After a few times of restarting it stays on but every few minutes it just about goes out then it ok again.

    Any idea of the cause??

    Partially blocked flue, partially blocked air intake, low gas pressure due to almost empty bottle, failing gas regulator.

    Hi D, thanks for replying. I just bought the caravan, it's only 4 years old. New gas bottle, I did buy a new regulator, the original one was faulty, the new one is very small com paired to the original one.

    Cheers
