Make sure the grate is in the holder like the others, and nothing is blocking the bottom of it. They often slip back where the fire misses the inside where it should hit.

Pilot light too big, how do we adjust pilot light on a Vanguard KV1800?


There is no adjustment for a Pilot Flame's Length on a Vent-free Gas Appliance. However, if you're using Natural Gas and it's a Natural Gas Heater, the normal length of the pilot flame is 2 to 2 1/2".
If it's a Propane Gas Heater and the pilot flame is as long as previously stated, you probably have a pressure problem from your tank. Contact your Propane provider to have them check the pressure on their tank regulator.

I need a universal propane orifice for a Vanguard heater to convert it to propane Any help


Sorry friend. Despite what you may have been told or think, it takes more than orifice change to convert a vent-free gas heater from one gas type to another. In any event, you "might" get it to work, but it would override the built-in safety features that are designed to shut it down within one minute, if something goes wrong. If you still have your Owners Manual, you will see that it can not be safely converted.

I highly recommend that you don't even attempt it. Is trying to saving a few $$ worth risking your or your family's life?

My flame is above the guard on the heater in the middle flame. How do I adjust the flame to be lower?


this is happening because the bricks need cleaning. I imagine the flame is burning blue instead of glowing red in the middle brick. Contact your local propane or natural gas dealer about getting the heater cleaned. This type of problem causes a huge loss of efficiency and could be dangerous.

Change from natural gas to propane


You could do it but it would be very expensive. You would need to change the ODS pilot and the gas valve itself. I am not sure even then it would work correctly. These are not conversion ready.

The burner and anything else that was damaged. You might want to get the advice of a local professional. Remember, this thing runs INSIDE your home, where you live, eat and sleep. You want it to be safe, my friend.

I turned my propane fireplace on and it set my smoke alarm off. We have lived here for three years and never had this problem before. Please advise.


check to see if the flame is pure blue. if not you have incomplete combustion letting CO or CO2 into the room. The flame will look yellow if this is the case. An orange flame indicates dust and dirt around the burner assembly. If it is yellow, the should be 1-2 set screws on the back of the burner assembly that will let you adjust the primary air being mixed with the propane.Adjust until you get blue flame and tighten set screws.
