Schwank prefection wall furnace thermo control

We have a schwank prefection wall furnace and the temp control is very touchy. We barely move it to get a higher or lower tem and the temp in the room changes too much. This unit does not have a thermostat. It is a knob control. Can we put in a thermostat to control the temp or do we need a conversion something to do that? I do have the book but it is unclear if a conversion kit is needed. The model ASV120

I don't think there is any way to wire in a thermostat to this heater. There might be a conversion kit . How old is the heater?

It's possible that tapping the valve may be just enough to make the cylinder inside the valve move. Gas is impure and causes a sticky residue that causes valves to stick. If you are sure you MV is correct and that you have no loose connections, it may be the valve itself.

Good morning, try plugging the unit into a regular outlet. GFI outlets are notorious for tripping when used with large appliances. They are very touchy for safety reasons. A large current draw could be interpreted as a short and will trip. Hope that helps.

I have Wiiliams direct vent wall furnace. I smell gas only when pilot is on and burner is not on. It does not smell when it is fully running (burner is on)

Dear Alex191: I am shocked and amazed that the Williams heater company is STILL knowingly and willingly selling faulty direct vent gas heaters. My problems took place in 1988! I bought a 30,000 BTU Williams DIRECT VENT from The Home Depot. I took the time to remove window sashes and run gas line to the Williams heater that I had placed in the window aperture. I was glad to finally have heat and be able to heat the area of the house where I stayed. Then I began to smell gas when the Williams was OFF. I traced it to the area where the pilot light gas tubing entered the combustion chamber. I removed the Williams unit and replaced it with an identical make and model and the SAME THING HAPPENED!!! I sat on my bed and almost cried. I had the gas company come out and they labled the problem as a "fuzz leak". The warranty repairman came out and had no idea what to do. Tightening the retaining nut did nothing. I called Williams and even back then they said that they were aware of the problem. They called me back and wanted to send me a part and asked me, "Can you work on it?" I returned the Williams and bought a Perfection-Schwank CONSOL heater that burns the air in the room and vents horizontally to a 4 inch vertical gas vent and was very satisfied with it. When they went out of business I bought an "Empire" brand gas heater. I don't know if I'll ever buy another direct vent heater from anyone. I will be glad to write an affidavit should you decide to suit the Williams company.
