Question about Cozy Heaters

Cozy Challenger Floor Furnace will not ignite

The 62,000 BTU floor furnace has a good pilot, thermostat, etc.
When the thermostat kicks on, or if it is bypassed, the burner will not start unless you give the valve a small tap.

SOURCE: cozy wall heater lights fine then goes out after 3 or 4 minutes

Make sure all the wire connections are good and tight. Next lift off the cover and look for a little thermal disc mounted up by top of the heat exchanger. Most have a re-set button but not all. If you have this ,by-pass it ,see if that solves the problem, if so it may be defective, or doing its job and you have a venting problem. If you don't have this and have changed the thermocouple (was it a copper tube with a fitting that screwed into the gas valve, or did it have 2 wires, that is a pilot generator, kind of same thing) make sure the probe is set correct, with the pilot flame heating the top 1/3rd of the probe. The only thing left is the gas valve.

SOURCE: Cozy wall furnace burner will not light. Pilot

Hi, have done this to many times not to know. I will walk you through this. It is good that the pilot is lit. Go to the stat and remove cover. Don't worry as this is a milivolt unit, no voltage or such a small amount you wont even notice as this is why it is called milivolts.Take a small screw driver to remove the next section which is the thermostat and will expose the sub-base where you will find 2 wires connected to it. You may have 2 or 3 screws to take loose to get to this last section. Anyway, if you have a piece of insulated wire laying around, even old speaker wire will work, take it and touch the wire across the 2 terminals and hold. If the furnace comes on, the thermostat is faulty, and you will need to buy a new one. No power to shut down, and simple to change. Cost about $12.00 dollars. Try and get a heat only milivolt stat as they are much less expensive and will have less problems with them. Go to home DEPOT to get one, or O.C.S.H. will also carry them. Don't let the salesman talk you into buying a programable heat and cool stat, 24 volts as they will work, but cost more and you don't need it!! Look around even if you need to go to a wholesale Refrigeration, Air Conditioning, and Heating parts house. Tell them you need one for a unit in some apts you own, and you will pay cash as you want a cash account. They will only ask what job its for, and just tell them your name. This is not illegal and I wouldnt tell you this if it was!! You will still have to pay taxes but will get a wholesale price for it. I am sure it will fire up when you touch the 2 wires and prove stat is bad. For some reason it is not the stat, follow the 2 wires from the stat down to gas valve and jump the same 2 terminals there also. If it fires up, you will have a problem in the wires from the stat to heater and will need to be replaced. I don't think this is the case. But, on the chance it will not fire after you have done all of the steps I have had you do, then you have a faulty main gas valve(MGV) and will need to replace. This is all easy to repair.I am a 100% sure it will fire up when you jump the 2 wires together, and you will need the stat. Please let me know as I will be waiting for an update! Good Luck,
Shastalaker7
PS When you install the new stat, make sure it is Level.

SOURCE: Cozy Wall Gas Furnace Pilot won't stay lit

Hi, if you have replaced the thermocouple or thermopile generator, and it keeps going out, you will need to replace the gas valve. That's all it can be is the milivolt coil on the valve, trust me. I have been through this many times.
Sincerely,

SOURCE: The pilot light will not stay lit, I was told

Hi, this heater doesn't have a thermocouple, it uses a pilot generator which is more reliable so I doubt you need to change it out. First thing to check is that you have a clean "sharp" blue pilot, you should be able to hear it quietly roar. If it is yellow and appears "soft", the pilot need to be cleaned. The easiest way is to use a straw or tubing of some sort to blow into the pilot, gently tapping the pilot assembly. That should clean it up and heat the pilot generator properly. Tighten the the screw terminals at the control valve to assure good electrical connections and last but not least turn off the thermostat until you get a standing pilot. Good luck and stay warm.

SOURCE: Cozy wall furnace (propane) does not respond to

Try jumping the two thermostat wires together to see if the heater starts. If so, replace your thermostat. If not, jump the two terminals where the thermosta twires attach to the furnace. If it starts, you have a bad thermostat wire or connection.

I've got good flame replaced Powerpile pilot won&#t stay lit


The flame sensor is not producing enough volts to hold the gas valve open for the pilot light. Make sure the SIDE of the pilot flame is touching the sensor. If it in engulfed by the flame it won't work right.

Dear Sir,
That glass inspection cap is not made anymore, and it is very dangerous to operate with out one in place. Many people are in the same spot as you are.
I have had success working with glass companies, they can make a glass piece out of glass that can withstand high heat, it is time consuming and expensive, so you will have to shop around, but it can be done, but not for cheap.
Those old floor furnaces can heat so nice, Just for the information these floor furnaces are still being made, though they heat a bit differently as they don't get as hot, just a new code put into place, to keep children from burning thier little feet.
"Cozy" is one of the new manufactures.
I hope I have answered your questions.
Sincerely,
Paul Gibson

Check your exhaust pipe for blockage, Make sure pilot light is located just above or below the burner. Make sure that there is a good supply of air going to the burner and that the intake pipe (if it has one) is not restricted. A furnace that old needs to be replaced what ever you find. You could have a cracked heat exchanger.

Have the thermocouple replaced, ensure the pilot flame is blue - not yellow, yellow indicates blockage in pilot

Pilot lights fine, furnace fires up, when it turns off the pilot goes out


need to have at least 3 feet of vent out of the roof, if it is to low the coll air will cold soak down to the pilot and shut it down.
