Default RE: Cheetahs

snobird:

Two things to check;

1. did you rotate the turbine in the mounts so the name Cheetah is on top. . .that is facing upward toward the top of the nacelle? Please do so if not already accomplished.

2. "Ignition fail" is just that. . .failed to get ignition. The manual describes the parameter to be adjusted if you get failed ignition. Also, please check both the 3mm and 4mm lines from your fuel source to the turbine for any restrictions.

Thanks for the question

Eric
