Heater ignites when holding knob in as soon as you let go flame goes out so basicly it wont stay lit


safety interlock is not being disabled. Older types have a mercury filled bulb flame sensor, newer types have a thermocouple or millivolt sensor. Diagnose and repair the safety shutoff interlock, when the flame heats up the sensor the gas valve should keep the flame lit on its own.

Thermostat calls for heat, purge motor turns on, 15 seconds later hot igniter turns on, then gas turns on and burners are lit. Problem is, they only stay lit for 5 seconds then shut off and cycle repeats...


,Hello, Make sure the flame sensor is clean near the burners, The flame sensor is a metal rod that is on the opposite side of the ignitor. To clean the flame sensor you will need some steel wool, turn off power to the furnace and remove the flame sensor and clean it with the steel wool. After cleaning reinstall it and turn power back on to furnace.

Pilot will not stay lit and heater will not light


thermocouple probablly bad, is the flame covering the thermocouple.
the flame has to hit top portion of thermocouple to work correctlly.

Heater will fire but wont stay lit.


I assume that you are referring to a natural gas forced air furnace. If so you just described the symptoms of a dirty flame sensor. Remove the sensor with a 1/4" nutdriver. clean the flame sensor with a small piece of fine grit sandpaper or emery cloth. replace the sensor and turn the furnace back on.
Good luck.....

Flame goes out


the most common problem is the flame sensor located just behind the fire chamber, about two inches long in a round rubber boot with two wires. you can get one from mr. heater for about 3 bucks. the wires are a different color but all you have to do is splice them to your old wires. it doesn't matter how you connect them.

Glo warm wall heater will not stay lit


Hi Cindy,

It seems that your heater is not sensing the flame is lit and is shutting gas supply off. There should be what is called a flame sensor, it is a thin pc. of metal that sticks out into where the flame when lit.

This usually gets charred and dirty, if you unscrew it and clean it with a soft cloth then re-insert it, it will get you by. You should get a new sensor when you have a chance.

Good luck and be sure to disconnect from any power source or turn unit completely off when orking on it.

Thanks,
Paul

Wont stay lit


go to this site www dot desatech dot com. Here you'll find parts to repair your heater. a propane heater uses a millivolt generator to sense the flame. along it's cappilary are two push on spde connectors. these connect to the high limit temperature sensor which is mounted on the flame backplate of your heater. to see if it is the high limit shutting down your heater, jumper across the two spade connectors. if the heater stays on, this is your problem. if the flame still goes out, then the millivolt generator is shot.

Pilot and burners


You need to check a couple of things, first is the flame sensor, second is the thermostat. Without anymore detailed info this is the most I can give you.
