Problems with my Little Buddy heater

Before I just go buy a new one i thought I would check.
The problem is it will run for 5 minutes then shut off it will take at least 30 minutes before it will start again and 5 minutes later it shuts down again. They have a tip over shut off and it seems like thats whats happening but the not starting again is weird. It had been working great for the last year.
Any suggestions?
Thanks
Ron

Re: Problems with my Little Buddy heater

Just a thought. They have a built in O2 sensor don't they? Is it something that needs cleaned?

I haven't checked it yet but I'm sure they do.
Good thinking
Thanks

Re: Problems with my Little Buddy heater

They have an O2 or CO sensor, can't remember which. I know that when mine trips the safety shut off for either reason it's hard to get restarted.

Ron, altitudes over 7000 ft it will start to be interment. It is a common problem, hunters will buy them take them up to high elevations and they quite working. Then they return them??? Good luck

You might have hit it on the head there Jeremy, I believe Vedauwoo camp ground might just be 7000ft. I tested it today here in Jackson and it worked fine.

Thanks
