Bosch TF250 Not Heating up

There is propane gas coming in but not going out the solenoid the contacts are very dark it doesnt close to allow gas through, Batteries are new plenty of HV spark but no gas to ignite. Running the water still doesnt move that closing, the voltage across the solenoid is very very low if anything. Don't know what to think solenoid or HV might need replacing, There was a lot  green around the negative terminals of the batteries  cleaned that, will need new battery contacts after the oxide gets to it, who knows.

Is something blocking the gas to go in to the solenoid check that first.

    there is a sensor that goes from the gas valve to the pilot that is called a themocouple, change that and it will mostly solve your problem of not heatimg up.

    there may be a loose connection on the downstairs thermostat mounting plate ensure all power is off and check that all connections on the mounting plate and the pins that contact the controller are in good order.

    When a refrigerant is compressed it still contains the same amount of heat energy (don't confuse that with temperature, that's something else altoghether) that it had BEFORE it was compressed and since the volume is smaller, the temperature goes up. The state change (gas to liquid) also gives off a lot of heat, but don't let that part confuse you. The compressed (and heated) refrigerant is then passed through a coil of tubing and the heated refrigerant is cooled by the ambient air completing the gas to liquid state change.
    Then the compressed refrigerant passes through an orfice (a restriction in the tube) and is allowed to "flash" back to a gas. Now it's at a much lower pressure and the volume of refrigerant now contains much less heat (again, not to be confused with temperature) that it did when it was a liquid. Another part of the process is referred to as the "heat of vaporization", which really cools things off, sort of like the cooling from sweat when you get hot

    There is either a problem with the downstairs thermostat, or the wiring from that thermostat to the unit. First check the batteries in the thermostat. Yes the digital ones have batteries. :-) Next, if that doesn;t fix it, try switching your two thermostats. Be careful to wire them exactly as they were before. If your heat now works downstairs and not upstairs, replace the thermostat. If the problem remains unchanged and you still have heat up and not down - check your thermostat wiring. The voltage is low so a simple voltmeter can be used to confirm continuity from the end where it goes into the furnace to the end where it connects to the thermostat.

    replace the blower motor and flush the heater coil. I know the vents are working properly because they work when the temperature is selected to cold. I am wondering if there is something under the hood that redirects the aif flow either through the cooling coil or the heater coil based on the position of the temperature control. If so possibly the heater coil (air side) is clogged. I noticed that the heater coil is below the AC coil so it is possible that debris is down in it. I may try to pull it and clean it. Have you tried that?

Will only run with choke closed,is run on propane

check that the gas converter/ regulator is operational and allowing enough gas through with out the choke
With the choke closed your are creating high vacuum in the inlet manifold that is sucking enough gas past the regulator to run on
have it checked and tested by an accredited gas fitter

Blower works no heat

Most electric furnaces use time delay relays called sequencers to turn the heating elements on and off. If your thermostat is calling for heat, the sequencer coil should get 24 volts and the contacts will close in a pre-determined order bringing on each element individually. If the sequencer coil is getting 24 volts and the elements are not heating, then one of the following issues is going on. 1. The sequencer contacts are not closing because it is defective. Therefore the heating element is never getting proper voltage (usually 208/230V) 2. The heating element may be broken. 3. The high temperature limit switch for the element may be open, not allowing proper voltage to the element, or 4. The element is not getting proper voltage because of a blown fuse, tripped breaker, or broken wire. I hope this helps!!!

Am looking for a propane burner for a vermont castings radiance 2600- you can't get the conversion kit from natural to propane- what can I do to get this to run on propane?

Unfortunately, as you discovered, there are no gas conversion for your Vent-free gas log stove. There are none available for any Vent-free supplemental gas heating product. And despite what others may tell you, there's more to the conversion, than just changing the pilot orifice. By the time you bought all the parts to safely do it, it wold have cost you more than you would want to spend. The bottom line is, it can not be done safely. And any attempts to convert and operate it, puts all the liability on you if something where to go wrong.

I wish I had better news for you. But, it's always best to err on the side of caution and safety, when dealing with gas fired products.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The heater is attached to the propane tank properly; however, when I try to light the heater, the push valve does not allow the gas to pass to the heater to be lit. I do have all of the valves open on the...

Typically there is a safety device directly above the pilot light that must be up to temp for the gas to flow. You did not specify if the pilot is lit. If not, hold the lighter at the pilot light while depressing the button for one minute. This allows the sensor to warm to operating temp, thus allowing gas flow. Once pilot is lit adjust the temperature accordingly.

I live in Wisconsin (so it gets cold) and I just built a 1,000 sqft detached garage with 9' walls and I looking for the most efficient way to heat it. I will generally only be using it on weekends, but,...

Hi Rob - There are a bunch of variables that come into play. If you're going to use liquid fuels such as K1 kerosene or "home heating oil" (red dyed diesel fuel without the "road use tax"), you have to consider the tank location. Since home heating oil is really dyed diesel fuel, is reacts to cold just like diesel fuel does. It begins to gel - paraffin separates and the fuel gets cloudy around the 20 degree F mark and can clog the supply lines and filter. It gets worse as it gets colder. You can get around this somewhat by installing larger diameter and insulated fuel supply lines and moving the filter bowl assembly inside where it won't be subjected to that much cold. Your dealer may put additives in the fuel to prevent separation or you can add it yourself. K1 can be added to home heating oil tank to reduce clouding and straight K1 can be burned by an oil burner (you can not burn home heating oil in a K1 heater though). K1 on the other hand, flows just fine at these temps and lower. You'll need to supply storage tanks for these fuels.

The amount of heat or BTU's per gallon of these two fuels is significant. Home heating oil checks in with 50% more heat with around 140,000 BTUs per gallon while K1 has just over 90,000 BTUs per gallon. Cost is another factor. Typically, K1 sells for more than home heating oil, but has the benefits above. Prices for home heating oil and K1 are volatile and change daily and from dealer to dealer. Many dealers will lock prices and / or offer purchasing plans.

Next is natural gas (or just plain "gas") and propane (or LP). Gas is usually delivered via underground supply pipes and propane is delivered by truck to your on-site tank in areas that don't have the underground gas pipe infrastructure in place. The LP dealer will usually supply and install an above ground tank. You'll likely have just LP or both LP and gas available in your area. Heating appliances must be set up to burn one fuel or the other - not both. It is often a relatively inexpensive operation to convert from one fuel to the other, meaning separate appliances for either are not required. Gas prices are usually fixed for different times of the year, while LP prices may change daily and based on the volume used. Lower usage customers often pay more than their next door neighbors that use more from propane the same company. Like home heating oil and K1 dealers, many companies offer price locks and purchasing plans.

Gas and LP heating appliances burn "clean" meaning that there is little smoke, soot or tuning needed. Oil and K1 however, require regular tuning and cleaning to achieve maximum efficiency. Oil and K1 will burn but not rapidly combust - as gasoline would. LP and gas however, will explode if allowed to collect in an enclosed area and ignited by spark from a ringing telephone, etc. Prices of the heating appliance itself come into play as well.

You can heat the space by your choice of fuel and method of heat delivery. Forced hot air is probably going to be your best choice, but you could choose a forced hot water system if you add antifreeze to it. You'll also need a source of water to make up any lost due to pressure relief valve discharges, etc. If you chose the forced hot air system, you could probably get away without the expense of duct work - where a forced hot water design will require baseboard radiant heaters or a fan forced hot water coil.

That should be enough to get you thinking.. good luck!
Lastly, electric heat. Electric heat is 100% efficient, but is probably the most costly to operate. It's listed because it is available - not because I recommend it.

The best thing you can do is insulate. Insulation pays you back quicker with each rise in fuel costs. Put money into proper insulation as you can. Low E glass in your windows, weather strip doors, etc.

I have a propane gas fireplace that will come on and then occasionally go off for a while, then come back on. It may do this several times in a row. The flames look normal when on and I am not low on...

There are several possible things that could cause this problem. Fiirst you said you are not low on propane so the first thing I would want to know is your primary heat source or water heater also propane? If so and they are upstream of your fire place when they cycle they may be shorting your fuel supply. Second are you on a one or two regulator system? If you are on a single regulator you may be trying to draw more fuel than supply line can deliver.Either way the first thing I would do is contact your propane supplier and have them do a pressure check on your regulators. Most suppliers will due this free or at a minimal charge,but checks or adjustments should only be done by trained personnel. Where I live we have two stage system and propane supplier takes care of tank regulator free and house regulator at our expense. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

I installed Goodman equipment in my new house, but i will be using propane for heat and the furnace gas valve is for natural gas. I have heard that there is retrofit kit to conver the valves to propane.

there should be a supply house or a supply store that deals only with heating and air conditioning they should be able to help you . but i believe you need your epa license

The by pass pipe may be limed up. This apparently causes a reduced flow which will stop the heating side of the thing working. Call out Worcester Bosch engineer. It costs £210 including VAT and most parts and they almost guarantee to get it working.
