1980 Coleman Valley Forge - Furnace not working..
« on: July 04, 2016, 12:14:27 PM »
I have a 1980 Coleman Valley Forge...up until last trip (past weekend).  I usually would turn on LP propane for 2mins to purge system, turn to Pilot, light it and it would heat Thermocoupler right away. Then once Pilot stays lit, turn Propane dial on heater to ON.  Turn thermostat ON , then dial to desired temp. The burner on the Heater would then light up the rail and fan kicks in shortly after. 

This weekend the Pilot would not stay lit flame was Yellow and not hitting thermocoupler, so I took the heater assembly out, cleaned out all Pilot lines and reassembled. Once all was back together, the Pilot light was now BLUE and stayed on , as it heated the Thermocoupler correctly. I then turned dial to ON, turned on Thermostat ,set temp but the heater rail would not light? and the FAN would not kick on?  Spent hours troubleshooting and could not get the heater to light. The thermostat CLICKS on at desired Temp but doesn't kick on the heater??

HELP please
