Open Question

Element goes out

Have hanging propane shop heaters and one or more of the panels will pop out and have a soft blue flame, but next to it the panel is burning correctly. I shut it of and turn in back on and it works fine for a while.

Ours didn,t burn liquid propane too well, so ccheck your connections on your tank for vapor or liquid.

This sounds like a problem with your thermocouple.

Just remove the end of the thermocouple from where is goes into the gas valve and leave the end that goes into the flame in place.

Clean the end of the thermocouple connect by scraping off just a little metal from the end just about there the nut tightens the thermocouple into the gas valve. After you have exposed some new metal do the same inside the valve where the thermocouple seats into the gas valve.
Use a small pic or similar item to scrape inside the gas valve to expose some new metal there also.

Now reassemble the thermocouple into the gas valve and see if the heater works.

Here is a link with some more instructions.

If this does not solve the problem you may need a new thermocouple and you can find that at www.desaparts.com

Propane blue flame heater. Why does it flare/pop when the flame shuts off.Lights well ,flame is nice and blue but when the thermostat shuts it off it pops.?


Its just a small explosion from the mixture of propane and the oxygen rite at the time it gets to the percentage of O2-ph. Its safe. An oxy/acetlene set up does the same thing when the mix is to high in O2.

I have a Mr Heater infra red propane wall heater. My problem is it turns itself off (pilot light) after running for an hour or two. I have no problem getting it turned back on but for some reason it d


Your pilot flame should be blue with a small yellow tip, and it should cover the thermocouple (a small rod in front of the pilot light). If the flame is too small and doesn't cover the thermocouple, it may be adjusted too low, or you have low gas pressure or you have a leak in your gas line coming in to the heater. If the flame looks like a lazy yellow flame, you are probably not getting enough air to the flame. Check that your air openings around the pilot are not clogged up. If the flame looks like a waving blue flame then you probably have excessive draft at the pilot. If the pilot flame looks good and covers the thermocouple, then the thermocouple might be bad. Best of luck. I hope I have helped.

I have a propane heater that sits on the tank and has the ceramic plates for dissipating the heat. Instead of a nice blue flame, it has a lot of orange flame. Why?


I would shut off valve to heater and remove it from propane bottle. Carefully clean with soft bristle brush and blow out with medium pressure air. Reinstall and light heater and see if flame quality has improved. Often dirt,dust,and lint can build up in burner and cause fuel to not get good enough air to fully combust. Hope this helps you.Thanks

Heater won't stay lit after releasing yellow button


you need to replace the thermocouple at the burner tip it will be a copper line with a bulb in the flame tip with a copper tube leading back to the gas valve and it senses the flame and keeps the gas valve open
