Vent free is the problem, 1 of the combustion byproducts is a large amount of water vapor. Crack a door to the room a little and maybe even a windw slightly (as it most likely states in the owners manual) and see if the problem goes away.

high himidity + warm air+ cold window glass = condensation

fresh air circulation = less condensation and also less CO and other bad things in the air you are breathing...just because its vent free does not mean its not dangerous in a tightly closed room. The vent frere designation assumes a certain number of air changes per hour and you are not getting them.

How much steam should be comming out of vent pipe on a rayvac propane heater?


You'll see steam if it vents outside,especially in cold weather. Burning propane creates water as a by-product. That's why well-insulated houses get condensation on the insides of their windows when unvented heaters are in use. don-ohio (:^)

2000 Mitsubishi diamante runs great till weather turned cold now having problems with idle dropping at lights and dying. New plugs and wires new battery cables and wires and good battery. Need opinion


  • This will happen to a lot of people as the weather begins to cool. I suggest making sure you get gas from a reputable service station for one. Just as important make sure to put a bottle of HEAT in your tank with every fill up(half a bottle for half a tank fill up on fuel).

  • What happens is there is already a certain amount of water no matter where you get fuel from as the storage tanks have a lot of water in them. That alone with the colder weather makes for rough starts and at times poor running conditions in the colder months because water freezes and makes the gas hard to pass through to the injectors and greatly effecting the engine firing properly. Heat will dry this water up and make your fuel flow much easier and burn a little better too.


  • Try this and you will notice a difference. Just about anyone will during the colder months.

  • Hope this helps.

Have a customer who has model # 1403622, when not in use the customer gets cold air coming inside from outside. suggestions?


This is a recurring problem with all Direct Vent Gas Appliances. Whether it be a Direct Vent Gas Fireplace or a Direct Vent Heater like you customer has. Not to mention, that they are very inefficient.

Unfortunately, there are only 2 solutions: Cover the direct vent outside when not in use. Of course, that means remembering to uncover it before each use. The other solution and the most efficient is replacing it with a properly sized Vent-Free Gas Heater or perhaps a Vent-free Gas Fireplace depending on what type and size room the present heater is in.

The following website as a lot of information o these types of products and how to properly size them.

Bosch AquaStar tankless natural gas water heater pilot goes out periodically--after a few hours or a few days, whether weather hot or cold, whether windy or not. This condition has been the same from day...


I had a similar problem with mine and it turned out to be a plugged air vent sceen. This is the small dome like sceen on the gas valve. I vaccumed out the unit and have not had the pilot go out in over a year.
