SOLVED! in short, replace rivets, or bolt the front cowling to the back cowling. the rivets that attach the front cowling wore loose on mine. i thought, at first it was the back cage shorting out the thermocouple, by touching it. i took this whole thing apart to fix it. I resoldered lines, cleaned thermocoule, and soldered an alligator clamp on to the actually thermocouple, since solder will just melt. This must have been tig welded onto the thermocouple. if you remove that ground wire, it won't stay lit, after you stop pushing the lighting button in. I made it through a tank, after doing all this stuff, including putting new rivets in. switched tanks, then more flare ups, after about 10 minutes on new tank. i noticed the back of cowling getting red this last time, before it flared and shut off, so i looked and 3 of my new rivets had melted, because i used aluminum replacements. now i put steel rivets in, the back of cowling is tight, and air can't get in from the top to make the metal hot. which is what i believe causes the unit to shut off. If these rivets don't last, i'll just bolt the two pieces together.

Dyna-glo rmc tt30dgp wont turn on

Your regulator has failed, just like mine did. Contact GHP Group Inc, (877) 447-4768 to order a replacement regulator - MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE PROPER HEATER MODEL NUMBER. Replacement Part Number: S2TT0001B for the RMC-TT30DGP.

Replacement cost including shipping is a couple bits over $21.

When talking to the technician on the phone, he cautioned me against rapidly opening the tank valve, which hammers the regulator (the replacement one is more robust than the original), kinda' like how water-hammer can cause damage to water pipes and/or water appliances. Open the tank valve gently, don't just whip it open (like I used to), your regulator will last a lot longer that way.

Because of the press-fit and pins used in the regulator construction & assembly, self-repair is not possible or recommended since the regulator may not seal correctly afterwards.

Filters for dyna-glo pro

You can make your own filters out of felt and I have also found that with some minor modifications most of the parts from Mr. Heater will work with Dyna Glo. I have a 170btu kerosene heater and just installed an ignition, a high limit control and a flame sensor from Mr. Heater and it works like new.
