Unit should now be in warm up mode. If the unit has a fast blinking light then there is a fault. If this is the case, then refer to the troubleshooting section.
When the trap is starting up, what is happening during the warm up.
- After you hit the power switch button the fan comes on.
- Start up will last 10 to 20 minutes, at this point the fan is blowing out anything that is in the burner box to allow for a better ignition when the gas is introduced into the burner box.
- After about 3 to 5 minutes you will hear the speed of the fan slow down. It is at this time that Propane starts to fill the burner box.
- Within a few minutes the igniter will heat up and ignite the gas.
- After the gas ignites, usually within 5 to 15 minutes, the unit should be fully operational. This will be indicated with a solid red light on the switch.
