Question about Desa International Propane Portable Forced-Air Heater

Open Question

Have a model 55F Desa Heater - It ignites perfectly but will not stay lit when the ignition button is released. Have held it for as long as 2 minutes but still will not stay lit. Tried Switching 20 lb Propane Tanks To Full Tank -Same Thing. Every Now & again It DOES Stay Lit. Had It On This Afternoon, & It Finally Stayed Lit For About 30 Minutes - Then It Went Out. Tried To Re-light It & Same Problem - Works Fine Until Releasing The Ignition Button - Would Not Stay Lit. Any Suggestions ?

Re Williams 3003622 Heater Please advise how to ignite pilot light.


You will first need to turn the control knob to pilot. Then depress the control knob button and hold it. Then press the push button piezo igniter several times until pilot lights or open pilot inspection cover and manually light pilot with match/lighter. You may need to hold the control knob for at least a minute. Then release the control knob and if the pilot stays lit then turn the control knob to on. If it does not light then repeat the process again.

Glo-Warm Model #WMN20 20,000btu. Can hold down and ignite the pilot but as soon as i let go the pilot goes out and with out igniting the unit.


WITH THE HEATER OFF, clean the pilot flame unit with a can of compressed air. Blow directly into flame hole then try it again. if it continues to "not" stay lit then you need a new thermocouple.

I HAVE A DESA LP VENTLESS FIREPLACE AND THE PILOT WILL NOT STAY LIT


the heater makes use of a millivolt generator which generates a small dc voltage (500-750mv) that is applied to the pilot valve of your main gas valve. when you light your pilot, the flame bathes the generator with a flame. after a delay you release the pilot button. if the generator is working, the pilot valve will stay lit. if the generator is not working the flame will go out as soon as you release the pilot button. change the generator.

Nexgrill patio heater won't stay lit


I called Nexgrill technical support at 1-800-913-8999. They are sending me a new thermo couple to keep the valve open when ignited - so the patio heater will stay on. I needed to give them the serial number (inside the propane tank door) and fax them a copy of the receipt.

Hope this helps.

Unable To Keep Pilot Light Lit!


I have a Williams top vent gravity wall furnace (model 5009622) and I had the same problem. I had to take the cover off the furnace -- screw on top and two at the bottom (open the access door and there is one screw on each side) to get to the reset button for the vent safety shutoff system. On my furnace it's on the left side toward the top of the unit. I pressed the little red reset button and it's been working ever since. If your furnace is properly installed and doesn't have bird's nest in the chimney, it should work fine. Good luck!

Forced air propane heater won't stay lit


two items come into play here - 1) the hot surface cutout and 2) the flame detect Cd cell. Check alignment of the Cd cell or just replace it. The hot surface cutout has two terminals that plug into the two tabs on the millivolt generator.
