Question about Desa International GWP20T GLOWARM Wall Mounted Panel Heater
Our heater was built in 10/ 2005 and has worked fine, no odor, etc until this year. The model #CBT30PY, serial 018365275. We have never had the problem before. We have checked all gas line, cleaned the unit before using it and the odor is still there. What can be done about this odor? Any information would be helpful.

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.

Usually it is a metal plate stamped to the unit.
Most common places to find it is usually located where the gas
valve and burner is located, it could be hooked to a chain.
Sometimes it is located on the side.

According to the Comfort Glow Website, this is a Natural Gas unit. If you use propane you will need
a minumum 100# LP Cylinder and a pressure regulator. I have a Comfort Glow unit and went through the same process.
If you have it hooked up to a 30lb cylinder without a regulator I would think that if you purged the gas line
of air you should be able to light the pilot.
On a new unit you can expect to push the spark ignitor button at least a dozen times while holding
down the gas valve button.
