Legacy heater problem

Three years ago we purchesed a Legacy propane wall heater with a blower from TSC (Tractory Supply Company) Now that we are having a problem with it, we find out they no longer sell them. And cannot give us any information on trouble shooting. Everyone we call says they want to come out to look at it, and charge us money. And we cannot find anything on the internet about them, nor can we find our users manual.
The heater has the blue flame on the front, not the yellow one.
The problem we are having is that we are smelling alot of gas and a flame shoots out the front when it lights. So it seems that it is getting to much gas to it??? We were told that there is an ajustment on the Dynaflow ones, so there may be one on the Legacy. We do not move it around because it is in a permanent place. I have the same problem with mine recently and have also purchased ours from Tractor Supply, about 3 yrs ago as well, but used it for only 1 yr. and now we decided to use it and this problem started the other day. I am going to contact the CFM Corp. at 1866-333-4833 about this heater, maybe you should do the same,let me know what kind of response you got!

First make sure there is no obstructions in the burners, rust,dirt dobers nest or any kind of stuff stopping the burners up. the whole burner won't have to be stopped up to throw flames out.

I have a problem with my empire R-15 wall heater can you help?

Sounds as if you might have collected some lint in the pilot light area or even a cob web will also cause it. Check by using an air hose on it to blow it out, might just solve your problem.

Legacy heater won't stay light

Hi, Lets see if I can help you out. You have a wall furnace with a forced air fan, 120volts I am sure. It could be a couple of things happening. You say the pilot will light and the burners fire, but after the heat exchanger reaches it's fan on temp, all just shuts down? Does the blower ever come on? It sounds to me that this unit is shutting off on a safety such as the high limit switch.On wall units that don't use a blower, the limit is located in the upper section of the furnace when you remove the cover. If your fan motor never comes on at all, the heat will open this switch and shut down everything.Not knowing if the fan motor is any good, i am just giving you some ideas what would happen if it was bad, shorted, open windings ect.If the motor never comes on then check to see if you have power to it.If you do, then the motor is faulty. If the motor runs, then go to you're high limit. It is a small round flat disc, black wire in and out back to gas valve.Take a jumper wire and jump across this limit and see if it works for you. If so, it would be worth the cost of replacing the limit.If the blower is bad, replace the furnace.Make sure your thermostat is ok also. You can also jump out the stat to see if the unit comes on and stays on. Jump the red and white, you should have only two.If you do this and it runs, do it several times. If all works well, then replace the stat. So there are several things you can check yourself. Please let me know about the blower motors condition. Good Luck,

I have Legacy ventless propane heater 15,000btu.

Try to take pilot assembly apart and clean real good. This will work most of the time. If it does not work for you, you will need to replace the gas valve. It's expensive but I'm about positive that cleaning it will fix it. Gas burns dirty and after a couple seasons a scale builds up that causes this problem. It's pretty common and nothing to worry about after it's cleaned. Good luck.

Propane heater has spark but wont light

ODS/Pilot may be clogged make sure you clean it out according to the instructions in your owner's manual. If you need a copy of the manual let me know and I will try to find it for you. If it is still not working it could be the gas regulator or the ignitor cable. For Glow warm parts contact Master Parts at 800-446-1446 or you also can find them online at I hope this helps you!

Inefficient (big, yellow flame) on wall propane heater, using up propane too fast

A clue to what could be wrong is that you mentioned it took 10 minutes for the pilot to go out. It could be your gas valve. Get a technician in to check your gas pressure both before the gas valve and after. Have them check it as the water heater is running.
