Question about Desa International Blower Glow Warm Wall Heater

Glo-Warm flame problem

We have a Glo-Warm propane infrared 5 burner heater. On burners B1 & B2 the flame comes out the top and the grates never get yellow/red like the others. Can I replace the grates or do I have to replace the burners. What can I do to solve this problem? Do I just need to discard this heater and purchase a new one? This heater is 7 yrs old. It has given us good service with the Thermostat up until last year when the flames started coming out the top of the grate. I would really appreciate any help. If it is just the grates needing replacement, any ideal where I can order two?
Thank You

My glo warm plaq doesnt glow red but has flame.thanks

The plaque may be out of place or may need replacing, depending on the age of the heater.
Also, although you have flame, make sure you have flame at that plaque that's equal to the other plaques. If you don't the burner may simply need cleaning.

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.

Replacement propane control valve for a rmc-tt30dgp heater


Most of the time malfunction of the burner or no function is due to a burnt wire that got to close to the burner. The wire goes to the thermocoupler that senses that a flame is present. If no flame is present it turns off the gas.

PHONE: 877-447-4768
I talked to a guy name Steve. Ask for the flame sensor or thermocoupler coming off the propane manifold. It cost's $4 plus S & H. The company is in Illinois.

I had to go to Home Depot and get this info off the box for a new one.

Glo Warm propane heater started to go out. I blew out the pilot with air compressor. It is staying on, but the middle burner in back of the pilot light is flaming a little above the brick. The other...

sounds like when you blew heater out with air compressor you moved brick so flame isn't hitting bottom of brick like they should. You should try and put brick back on top of flame so that you don't get to much heat on the refractory of the heater.The refractory will take the heat for awhile then refractory will start to break down. Then you will either have to install new refractory or replace heater

Soot coming from Wall Heater

The fuel mix it too rich. There should be a place where the gas hose goes into the burner part, and an adjustment where you can adjust how much air it gets. The flame should be almost 100% blue. It can make the grates glow another color, but the flame should be mostly blue.
