Actually, he was a mobile mechanic who came to my storage lot. He did a quick flue disassembly and brushing without compressed air. Some rust, some red dirt from boondocking in Utah. I thought that $40 for a 'house call' repair was quite a bargain!

I thought the 23' units had full height refers. On my unit, it has an inaccessible flue top. Yours must be different?

Our flue is accessible behind the lower of the two louvered vents on the port side.

Yup, definitely different. I only have a lower louvered vent, and then a roof top "scoop" covered vent. I can only access the bottom of the flue.

Probably a simple and easy fix. Same thing happened to me about a month ago..

Take off the over to the ignitor for our burner. You'll have a tip on one end and a burn tube on the other. clean out the tube and remove the tip and make sure that is clean and clog free.

as you're putting everything back together make sure the thermo-couple is touching the flame.
