I have a new Cougar, furnace comes on, fan runs, normal expected noise.

After the set time, propane delivery starts, furnace fires up and heat is good.

But when the propane delivery starts, it sounds like a jet engine, very, very loud.

I've looked at the LPG line, to see if it rattled with something... Could not find anything.

Anyone has any idea?

Thanks.

Yes sounds like the burner needs adjustment or cleaning.

Good idea. It's brand new, so I guess it needs adjustment. Will look into it.

It's a Dometic / Atwood.

Thank you

Dometic IS Atwood.....

There is NO adjustment of Gas flow or air flow...both are fixed
Orifice/LP System pressure determine gas flow
Venturi affect of gas flow determines air flow.

Loud Roaring Flame suggests damaged burner or high system pressure


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Are you talking about a roaring out the exhaust pipe? And is the furnace working normal?

I have had one that always sounded like a jet outside and also have heard others like that in a camp ground.

So is the noise inside or outside?
