    Fired up the lounge Atwood heater for the first time in ages, heard the fan running then the ignitor clicking followed by the gas lighting then a few seconds later it cut out.. just cold air. :Doh: Tried the bedroom heater and it was fine so that ruled out the gas supply..

    Armed with a can of WD40 and multimeter I went to investigate and asked Jan to try again while I watched and listened, same again.. ignition, fire up then went off after a few seconds.. by now I'm thinking either sticking sail switch, bad connection or faulty ignitor board.. :cry:

    Then I recalled we had stored a few things under the rock n roll sofa bed and yes, you guessed, the fresh air intake to the heater was blocked with the blanket .. :Doh::Doh:

    Sorry Linda, no order just yet.. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
