Wall heater not working properly--sputtering blue flame

My 30,000 btu propane wall mounted heater was working fine till yesterday, when it started sputtering, and having a blue flame on the tiles. The last tile seems like it does not even want to light up, and just puffs off and on. I took off the long tube at the bottom, and the little holes are all opened for the gas to get through. I also used air to blow the tube clean, but did not find any blockages there.
Any suggestions?? Thanks in advance for any advice I can get on this. I also tried another full 20 lb. propane tank, but with the same results.

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

Our Blue Flame Natural Gas 30,000 BTU Stove Smokes the wall above it all the way to the ceiling and keeps the wall very hot, this is the second one we have tried, has anyone else had this problem?


It comes from the factor ready to use PROPANE, if you are using natural gas, then it needs to be re-jetted or orifices changed for the proper gas.

I have a two year old Redstone 30,000 BTU propane wall heater. There is a lot of dust behind the unit. After running for awhile on the 2 setting, it shuts down and the pilot is extinguished.


If it is a wall unit, it has an over temp safety switch which is most likely tripping from dust preventing proper airflow across it . A good cleaning should cure this.

My 35000 btu will not stay lit. after i take my finger off the propane gas butten the flame goes off. what is wrong. this is a ready heater


I would venture to say that it is the thermocouple not picking up signal to keep the gas valve open. You can try cleaning the bulb end with steel wool and positioning it in the flame remember the hottest part of the flame is out on the end.

Propane heater wont stay running


is the sensor for the thermocouple located in the right spot in the flame,remove it and if you have access to a propane torch,heat the end till its red hot and leave it connected to the gas valve,then start the unit and this will tell you if the sensor is properly positioned in the pilot flame on the unit itself,if not you could have a defective new thermocouple or another safety device keeping it from staying lit or the gas valve is faulty

150,000 BTU propane Reddy Heater shuts off after ignition


Is there a frost line on your LP tank, if so you may need to replace the tank with a larger tank or refill your tank. This can happen if the tank your using is too low or too small (use 100 lb tank or greater). If there is no frost line it may be an issue with the thermocouple. The manufacturer offers a service manual and owner's manuals on there site. This should assist you... www.desatech.com Thank you

It sounds like the thermocoupler is either not adjusted into the flame properly, or you may have gotten a bad one. The thermocouple is the main thing that makes the pilot work.
