There could be something stuck in the pilot assembly since you added a new tank to system. Check to make sure flame is hitting thermalcouple. Can you wait for a repair man to come and take pilot assembly out and clean. He will also replace thermalcouple. If you can't wait and you feel comfortable with taking pilot assembly out. Turn gas and electric off to unit then pull cover panel off. Pilot assembly is held in with two screws. Take tube off of gas valve and take off thermalcouple line off gas valve too. take out pilot assebly. Once you have it out take gas line off bottom of pilot assembly. There is a orfice in side make sure you can see through the orfice. You can also clean thermalcouple with a wire brush or sand papper. Reinstall pilot assembly make sure all fittings are tight. turn gas back on and light pilot. If everything looks good turn power on. Turn heat up run heater for a few minutes then turn heater down and let sit to see if it will stay on.

Need some troubleshooting tips on a fireplace. I've got the pilot on but when I flip the wall switch nothing happens.


Most of these unit are controlled with a millivolt signal that is generated from the thermopile.
We see this often at the beginning of the year.
Remove the wires from you wall switch and clean them so you have new metal showing and tighten them back to the wall switch.

With your gas valve in the on position try the switch.

If this doe not work do the same thing to the wires on the gas valve where they hook to the TP/TH connecting and the Th connection.

Will not turn on. Unit has been working great until tonight. Was on but now off and will not come on. Unpluged it for an hour but still not working.


This same thing happened to me, and yesterday as well no less. I've had mine for a 3-4 years. I think It had run out of oil, which is weird because I've had a Holmes heater for nearly 10 years and it still has plenty of oil left. If you shake it, can you hear the oil? I went and got another from Target last night (it was the coldest night of the year) and can hear the oil swishing around in it as I set it up. Hope it last longer than another 3-4 years or my next one will be a Holmes.

DO NOT USE this heater until you have an expert look at it . Propane or Natural gas heaters that are not burning properly can and will emit C.O. (Carbon Monoxide) a deadly gas . When C.O is produced , although odourless in itself , does have a very strong burning type odour that comes from Aldehydes that are also produced along with the C.O.

Wall heater not working properly--sputtering blue flame


Ok, either your fuel pressure is too low or too high.. When you light the unit, Light it in low, then turn it up slowly Just crack open your tank valve.about1/4 turn. The air in the tubes has to be displaced with gas before you get a good flame

Inefficient (big, yellow flame) on wall propane heater, using up propane too fast


A clue to what could be wrong is that you mentioned it took 10 minutes for the pilot to go out. It could be your gas valve. Get a technician in to check your gas pressure both before the gas valve and after. Have them check it as the water heater is running.
