Fumes from Glo-Warm gas heater made by Desa International

I installed the Glo-Warm gas heater made by Desa International about two years ago & have had no problems with it. http://www.fixya.com/support/p521160-desa_international_gwp20t_glowarm_wall

But now I am smelling some type of fumes. It doesn't smell like natural gas as this is a recognizable smell. But it is some type of fumes that it never put out before. I don't know if it is dangerous or if it can be adjusted in some way to prevent this.

    I wish it were that simple, but it's been running for days & it is still putting out the fumes. I recognize the smell of dust burning versus this smell.

If it has not been run for several months it could be dust burning off.

Glo warm model FA3 burner one and two flame is too high #3 is fine


The higher flame on those 2 burners may be by rusted out. Of course this depends on how old the heater is and how well it has been annually maintained. Unfortunately, DESA International is no longer in business, but some parts are still available. You just have to search the internet for them.

Can I convert my natural gas glo-warm wall heater to propane?


Converting gas appliances normally entails the replacement of a jet that controls the flow of gas and in most cases, the manufacturer will (or will not) have replacement jets available. If they do, it should not be costly or difficult since they are often only screwed on.

How and where do I replace a thermocouple on a warm glo wall furnace? Help


There should be a thermocouple in front of the burners that has a copper colored wire that runs from the gas valve to the thermocouple. It is located in the pilot flame as it is a pilot proving switch that tells the gas valve the pilot is lit and its okay to open the gas valve to the main burner.
