Question about Empire GWT-50 Wall Mounted Panel Heater
Our Empire GWT-50 two-sided heater has started creating soot on and around the ceiling of the unit. The ceiling is 8 foot and the unit is installed to specifications. We have had a service guy come out recently. He said pilot and the heater flame was burning correctly. He cycled the unit several times and found no problems based on his knowledge. He did not charge us for the site visit.
The other night my brother had a “flash” from the heater starting up. It was described as a “whoosh with a yellow glow outside of the burner tubes”. This flash has happen two times now. The unit is very clean with no cobwebs or dust. We are at a loss on this problem. Ken
If it giving off soot then it is wrong it sounds like the air mixture is wrong and the flames are light back to the injector that would be the woosh , no heat er should give off soot if combustion is correct
