    I have a Carlin G3B gas conversion gun, the problem is sporadic when the unit calls for heat the motor in the gun comes on but sometimes it does not fire. Is there a part that I should check or replace. It does not happen all the time but the motor could run all day without firing. What would cause this

    The ignitor which lights the flame is not working properly, although most units would test the flame and if it did not fire within a reasonable time, and after a few tries, it would shut the motor down.

    The motor does not shut down though it keeps running. Since I put the first post up it has been running OK. Any other ideas.

    I fixed the gun myself once already so I guess I'll try again. Thanks for your suggestions.
