Can not get the bricks to light on my empire corcho

Model # r-15 wall propane heater..empire corcho

i get the pilot light to light but when i try to get 1 brick or 2 bricks or all 3 bricks to light ...the flame goes out i cleaned the bricks with air cleaner but to no change????

i think it might be the part the knob is on that switches it from 1 to 2 to 3 bricks not sure what it is called maybe a regulator of some sort.... anyone have ever had this happen and what can be done thanks bill

    Have the same problem. Took a piece of sandpaper and cleaned the thermocouple seemed to help a little. Also try taking a broom straw and clean gas jet for the pilot.

    this happen to me and it was the gas regulator thats between heater and propane tank enough gas was getting by for pilot lite to stay lit but when i turn the knob to get 3 bricks going it wood go out and the only time this wood happen is when it was very cold outside the regulator was freezing up so when it gets real cold i put a drop lite next to regulator and that keeps it from freezing up

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.

I have an Empire Corcho model CH-15 that is at least 15 years old. I have not used it much until past 2 years. It just started emitting a strong smell and a white powder is laying on the heater, above the...


Since it hasn't been used in at least 15 years, what you're seeing is the dust, dirt and spider webs that are being burned up by the heater. The strong smell is because of the clogged burners. Best suggestion is turn it OFF let it cool completely and thoroughly clean the unit. It may need to be dismantled some so that you can reach and clean everything. A shop vac with a house and brush attachment works well to accomplish this. Pay particular attention to the burner(s) and vacuum them several times. Dry clean everything you possibly can. Then reassemble the heater and relight the pilot and give it a try.

In closing, I must say, having been in the hearth business for 15 years, I' am totally shocked, that after 2 years of neglect, that a 15 year old gas heater would even light.

Empire corcho ventless propane wall heater 15000 btu


LOL.... your fuel is not boiling.... the closer propane gets to its vaporization point (-44%F) the less vapor it produces. clean the snow off of the 100# or lay it on its side to give it more surface area for vaporization.

Pilot light won't stay lit


Look for dust and lint. Look for them in places where gas should be freely flowing. I had a similar problem with an Empire Corcho wall-mounted propane ceramic catalyst heater. First it was the pilot light, then the #2 ceramic mantle. After horsing around with the gas lines and pressure regulators and trying to re-aim the pilot, it all turned out to be dust and lint in the gas passages. A little dust bunny in the brass pilot tube gave me a pilot light the shape and color of a banana. One puff of compressed air, and I got back my razor-sharp pilot. And some dust in the chimney of the #2 burner kept it burning blue/yellow and blistering paint off the upper surfaces of the heater. A bit of cleaning with a shop-vac put that right. "Passive" heaters are very much prone to this sort of problem because they rely on convection currents (i.e. LOW velocity) to get the job done. Convection currents are notorious dust collectors, as in COBWEB CITY.

Empire Wall Heater(propane) won't stay lit


You have a crack in your heat exchanger and it is sucking in products of combustion. Replace the heater. OR there is a blockage in the intake or exhaust vent. GET IT FIXED OR REPLACED!
