The red dials (I think - I can't find a pic where they are facing forward to see them) should control the wattage you have the heater set at. You can set it at 500 900 and 1500 watts usually. The first dial turned on would set the heater at 500. Turning the second dial on will set the heater at 900. And having both on will set it at 1500. And of course the more watts the more heat that will come out of the heater.

I have a customer who has a Warm Morning direct vent propane heater: model DV.203 AMA. His complaint is the thermostat does not seem to work properly. The dial is turned to the lowest setting and it...

Some thermostats have a default lower limit such as 60 degrees to prevent complete loss of heating. The lower limit is not set by the user.

How do you use the dial and what is it for

This heater has both a dial and a wattage selector. The dial is a thermostat, so it will turn the heater on and off as the temperature gets warmer and colder. Just like the thermostat on the wall in a house. The wattage selector switches let you pick how much heat goes in when the thermostat (the dial) tells the heater to turn on.
If you set the wattage at a higher level, the heater will use more power at once, but will turn on and off fewer times to keep the temperature determined by the dial setting.
If you set the wattage to a lower level, the heater will use less power at once, but will turn on more often and still use about the same amount of electricity.
So the dial really lets you pick how warm you want it to be in the room, and the wattage switches let you pick how often it turns on and gets hot. So this dial really determines how hot your room will be.

Went to sleep with the heater on on the highest heat setting, 3rd click on the dial. Woke up and the heater was face down and off. Opened it up and can't see any melted or damaged wires or elements. Any...

Set it upright and unplug it. Allow it to cool completely. This should reset the unit. You may also have a reset button on the outside of it. Check for that as well. Otherwise its a tip switch and it needs to be reset by setting it up right and unplugging it for 30 seconds.
Hope it helps...

Is it possible to manually ignite a corona 22dk kerosene heater safely with a butane lighter? the battery operated igniter is not working with new batteries installed.

I just use a match. Turn the setting dial to High. Open the little door in front. The one with glass in it. Light the match. Push the pedal down that you normally use to start it with the battery starter. Put the match into the heater and touch it to the wick. With just a regular match, I can reach in far enough to light the wick. When you have a complete ring of fire, lower the pedal slowly and close the door. It will smoke briefly and then burn. After 15 minutes lower the wick till the flame is smaller and whiter.

Pilot light can light and stay lit if I hold it

You have a possibility of two problems;
First:You need to check the pilot, when you areholding the pilot knob in, is the pilot flame covering the top of the thermocouple-the metal rod that is near the pilot, it will have a copper tube or maybe 2 wires, running back to the main gas valve. If the flame is covering the top 1/8" of the rod, it is ok. (For Now)
If the above checks out ok, now we move to the "Tip Sensor", this sensor is usually bebind the screen near the pilot knob. It has two wires running to it, the sensor is about the size of a dallor coin, inside this sensor is a metal ball, that makes contact with the two contacts inside the sensor, while the heater is standing upright, if the heater tips over, the ball moves and breaks the contacts in the sensor, shutting off the heater. This is a safety switch in case the heater tips over, sometimes the contacts in the sensor get dirty, try tapping the switch, basicly getting the ball to move around,then try it.
The final step - "Trouble Shooting purpose only", take the two wires coming to the sensor, cut them about 2" away from the sensor, and twist them together, then try it, if it works, the sensor is bad, take the sensor out, and shake it for awhile, then put it back in, rewire it to original wiring, if it still doesn't work, you will have to replace the sensor, contact the manufacture.
Please rate me, if this has been helpful, it keeps us keep on trying to help, LOL.
Contact me back if you have anymore questions.

I have a Cadet BTF2 Thermostat to mount to a baseboard heater. There are four wires. Two marked normally open and two are marked normally closed. Which two go to the 240 volt source? Thank you, MK

you will have to determine which set closes on a fall in temperature, (use ohm meter and dial the stat to lower temp) you want it to close to complete the circuit as the temperature falls

How to work a slimline creda nitestore heater

I have one of these heaters as well. The input/output dials are thermostats.

The higher the input dial is set, the more power the heater draws during its charge cycle (ie the "on" period that is set on your time panel). Which means a higher daily ration of heat, and a bigger power bill.

The higher the output dial is set, the more quickly the heater lets the stored heat out. So the highest setting would give you most of your daily ration of heat during the "on" period but less heat for the "off period... while the lowest setting would give you a relatively constant heat output throughout the day.

Don't know how to operate

The Dial is the thermostat setting. The rocker switches control the power. Turning on both switches activates the highest power setting. This will keep the heating operation as hot as possible. But it will use the most energy. Turning the switches only one at a time gives you the option of using less electricity at a lower amperage setting. Usually one is the lowest setting. The other is medium and both turned on is high.

Heater will not stay lit on auto procom ml 300 blue flame

If you have an ML300HGA, it is a manual-control heater, which means you turn it on and you turn it off. No thermostat. It does not have an AUTO setting.

Likewise, the thermostat-controlled models do not have a Manual mode. If you have the ML300TBA, it has a thermostat and will turn itself on/off in order to maintain a room temperature.

On manual models, the numbers (if any) on the dial are heat output selections. Set the control to the highest heat setting and that's what it does until you turn it off.

On automatic thermostat models, the numbers on the dial are temperature selections. Set the control to the highest heat setting and the heater will continue running until it is 85-90 degrees, then shut off. Set it around 2 and it will maintain a temp of around 70 degrees.

All Procom heaters are either automatic (thermostat-controlled) or Manual. None are both.
