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.

Pilot light lights but will not stay lit with full Propane tank.


Unscrew the thermocouple at the gas valve. Lightly sand the connections,seat and thermocouple end. Sometimes the tiny current generated that keeps a gas valve open will be diminished by corrosion. don-ohio

Gas valve not opening? Does it have the exhaust blower that pulls vacuum switch allowing burner to light?
(1) Thermostat not working? Has to complete the circuit in or gas valve to open.
(2)Can be a stuck or bad gas valve. Try tapping the side of the gas valve body while thermostat is calling for heat. Tapping,not pounding. Like lightly,yannow? don-ohio (:^)

Cannot get gas to flow to pilot flame with main valve parallel to gas pipe. Is there something I must push to make gas flow to the pilot flame pipe?


you said, in effect: Cannot get gas to light the pilot flame even though manual supply valve is open. Is there something I must push to light [ignite] the pilot? Permalink
The gas supply valve is open, and the pilot gas cutoff valve is open but [it seems like] gas will not flow to the pilot flame because it will not light when I supply a match or lighter flame. I remember there is a button or something I need to press...but where it it? I cannot find it.
