Question about Desa International Blower Glow Warm Wall Heater

1 Answer

Glo warm wall heater 3 tiles, center tile burns with a big flame

Model 3b-fb, the center burner, the main one, burns with a large yellow flame instead of making the tiles glow red like the other 2 tiles (right and left). I have tried blowing the unit out with a can of "computer air" but it didn't do any good. The other 2 tiles burn fine, (I think) the tiles turn a bright red color and give off alot of heat while the center one just throws a big flame that looks like it could start a fire.

Thanks in advance for any help

They can be replaced, go to enerco/Mr.heater as they own Desa and they will hook you up with the parts you need at a fraction of the cost of a retail parts supplier. you can also cal 1-800-251-0001 and talk to a tech.

SOURCE: I have model # FA-3A.


To correct the problem the whple heater will need to be taken apart and eveything blown out with compressed air....
Dust and dirt gets into the heater and messes with the gas/air mixture and then does not burn right...

The heater needs to be taken apart and clean throughly piece by piece...

Then it will work again...
