CORCHO PROPANE INFARED WALL HEATER PROBLEM

Hi I have a Corcho CK-18 infared wall heater that has a problem, it worked fine last year but this year when I lit it only one side will heat up completely. it has 2 bricks in it, 1 is small and the other is large, the small one will turn bright orange like it is suppose to but the large side will only get about a 3rd as bright, I have taken it apart and made sure that the pipes and orfices to the bottom part was clear, could it be a control valve problem or could it be something else, any help would be very grateful, thanks Terry

SOURCE: can not get the bricks to light on my empire corcho

I have the same htr in Mich. & have worked on gas htrs.for many years.
Does the flame go out when you let go of the button to lite it?
If it does, then the thermocouple is bad.

If the flame stays on, but goes out when you turn the dial,
the gas regulator is bad.

Probably a little more expensive to buy new then to fix it.

Michael.

Pilot lite will not stay on when I release the igniter pressure knob REH-18-N wall heater!


IS there gas? YES ok. So if you can get the pilot lit, but when you let up on the button it goes out. Few things to check. On some heaters the manf. install a safety switch to drop the pilot out if its not venting or if its over heating.

Wall heater new 07, worked great all last season, turned on this


there could be something stuck in the pilot assembly since you added a new tank to system. Check to make sure flame is hitting thermalcouple. Can you wait for a repair man to come and take pilot assembly out and clean. He will also replace thermalcouple. If you can't wait and you feel comfortable with taking pilot assembly out. Turn gas and electric off to unit then pull cover panel off. Pilot assembly is held in with two screws. Take tube off of gas valve and take off thermalcouple line off gas valve too. take out pilot assebly. Once you have it out take gas line off bottom of pilot assembly. There is a orfice in side make sure you can see through the orfice. You can also clean thermalcouple with a wire brush or sand papper. Reinstall pilot assembly make sure all fittings are tight. turn gas back on and light pilot. If everything looks good turn power on. Turn heat up run heater for a few minutes then turn heater down and let sit to see if it will stay on.
