Bad smells from Temco ventless gas log Model AD31P/2000P

This ventless gas log had this problem years ago, so I replaced the pilot light orifice unit. This fixed it...for a while. When the smell came back, I spoke to technician who told me to blow it out. This worked for while, too; however, the smell came back again. I blew it out again, but it didn't fix the problem. I have removed the orifice and blew it out again and checked with a light. It was clean & clear and was reassembled, but it still has the bad smell. Anything else I can do or does it need replaced again?

SOURCE: I have a smell that

Hi David, this sounds to me like an internal problem with incomplete combustion, and this is why you have this continuing smell, as the fuel is not being completely burned off. Even with the main and secondary filters on this type of heater, they can and will pick up matter and cause this type of problem. These are very dependable heaters, and very much worth it to have it serviced by a shop that is near you that can work on this type of heater. To be honest with you, if you are still smelling this petrol, something is not working properly, so I would take it in for a deeper service. After getting this minor problem solved, it is very important to continue to clean the filters as most people will not take the time until they loose all operation and wonder why? So, yes if you can take it in this I recommend, as I am not on site to help you trouble shoot it properly. But, the problem is incomplete combustion due to an obstruction of some king, and with these fumes I wouldn't want you to have what we call is delayed combustion which is not good! I hope this has been of help to you David, and please keep me posted.
Sincerely,

SOURCE: I have a Comfortglow ventless

I would try calling M & S Service and ask for the technical service department they are very helpful there and can also provide parts.
Master Dist won't help you at all with any technical service questions and they do not give refunds if they sell you the wrong parts.

Can not get pilot to lite was working fine had to turn off gas will I changed out some water pipe went to relite and could not get pilot to lite


I would first make absolutly sure that I had all air bleed out of gas line to water heater. If you are trying to bleed air out thru pilot assembly this can take a long time because the opening in pilot orifice is very small. To speed up process if you have a union close to unit or flex connector,you can slightly loosen fitting till you can hear a little hiss of escaping air/gas. When you first smell gas immedieatly tighten fitting. Before you do this make sure there are no standing piloy lights or other sources of flame in the vicinity. When you smell gas and tighten fitting back up try to relight pilot to water heater.If you still can't get pilot to light I would remove pilot line from gas valve and burner. Check to see if you can blow thru it, visually inspect pilot orifice, and if blocked I would get a orifice cleaning tool from hardware or welding supply store. Be careful to select the right size for your orifice and clean it. Reinstall and try to light pilot again.Hope this helps. Thanks

Pilot light won't light on ventless fireplace


Ventless Gas logs, Vanguard, VS30PR. Propane gas
Pilot light stays lit various times, sometimes for several days then other times for a few minutes. Lights best when temp outside is below freezing. Pilot flame appears to receive too much air. How do you adjust the pilot flame? Is this done using two screws marked A & E? Do you have suggestions?
Thanks,
Ed

Sometimes when you turn a gas heater off for some time, if the source tank has been turned off, the line will bleed the propane and the line will contain mostly air. This is especially true if the supply line is long. In order to light the pilot, you will have to hold the pilot lighting button down for a while (a full minute or longer, depending on the size and length of the supply line) before pure propane arrives at the pilot light jet. You should keep a lighted lighter at the jet so that when the gas arrives, the lighter will light it. After the pilot lights, you will have to keep the button pressed long enough for the thermocouple to get hot enough to set the pilot to stay on. When it is hot enough, you should be able to release the pressed lighting button and the pilot should stay on. If it does, you should be able to light the heater. If the pilot jet never lights, gas is not getting to the regulator. If the pilot will not stay lit after a period of time waiting for it to heat the thermocouple, the thermocouple or the regulator may be bad and need replacement. :-)

Comfort glo propane ventless heater won't light


I have several of these heaters in my rent houses and love them. The most problem I have is not being able to ignite the pilot with the user control igniter. Remove the screws that hold the front cover in place along with the front cover. Hold the pilot control down and ignite with a lighter. Keep the pilot engaged until thermocouple is warm enough to keep pilot gas flowing. If it will light this way then you need to blow out the pilot orifice. It seems that every year I have to go in after the summer season when the heater is off and clean the pilot/orifice lines with high pressure air. I believe spiders/bugs/dust block pilot orifice when it is not in use. You can also tell that orifice is blocked when you don't get a good blue pilot flame with pressure behind it allowing the flame to submerse the thermocouple. If the the thermocouple is not getting enought heat it will turn pilot gas off for safety reasons.
