Hello

Have a Carver 1800S which refuses to remain alight after ignition.

The flame looks a good clean blue and the flame failure device is getting
(red) hot

Anyone know the likely cause/ spares availablity?

Thanks in advance

The likely cause is the thermo-couple flame failure device

My local dealer told be that spare for mine were no longer available

At the moment I'm having a friend of mine ( a corgi gas plumber ) looking for a
universal one to fit

Hi
A possible cause could be the air intake position under the floor
Try turning it away from the direction of the wind
