Question about Blue Flame Heating & Cooling
Units are approximately one year old. The pilots even have orange tips, but stay lighted just fine. There's an old CharmGlo nearby running off the same gas source and its flame is still deep blue. Suspected a line pressure drop, so I tied in a tank and regulator from six feet away to test and there was absolutely no change. Would now figure the air intake needs to be adjusted, but why the orange pilots and why the exact symptoms on two heaters?

The pilot assembly is stopped up. It will need to be taken apart, blown out or cleaned and re-intalled. The yellow, lazy flame is preventing the thermocouple from getting warm enough to allow the main burner to ignite. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Pilot light seems to high
there may be an adjustment screw for pilot height. you'll have to look at the valve. a pilot should have an inner cone of greenish blue color and the surrounding flame should be a deep blue no yellow or orange tips. the pilot burns pure fuel no air. the main valve does mix air with the gas in order to burn.

All it needs is a good blow out with compressed air. They tend to carbon up in the pilot light area. You will probably also find it is very dusty inside. Easiest way to clean the carbon out is to remove the hose at the heater and with compressed air blow through the fitting where you have removed the hose. Make sure you hold down the start button so the air can get through to the pilot light and jets. Don't connect the electricity for the fan when you do this. If you can get to the top of the pilot light it may help to give that a blow out too.
To clean it out internally you only need to remove the front panelling. Just follow the screw configurations *** you go. I asm not familiar with that type of heater so thats about the best I can do. Regards Bryan

sounds like either a bad thermocouple or more likely a pressure regulator problem. should have unit checked by someone familiar with propane systems.
