Question about Desa International GWP20T GLOWARM Wall Mounted Panel Heater

Open Question

MY comfort glow model CBT30PT vent free gas heater is putting off an odor when it is on? what can I do about the odor?

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Where is the model # located on my Comfort Glow propane heater?

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.
-Good Luck

SOURCE: I bought a comfort glow vent-less space heater

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.

Good Luck

Pilot won't light


You may have to bleed some more air out of the system.

Your ODS pilot may be clogged with dust or lint and needs to be blown out with air(less than 30 psi).

Your regulator or gas valve may be faulty.

Have Model CGP30TB Copmfort Glow propane heater. Pilot light won't stay lit. Flames also coming from what seem to be air vents just below flame on pilot light.


sounds like an obstruction in pilot assembly.try using canned compressed air to blow directly into pilot. this technique is successful about 70%. if not,pilot assembly must be removed and cleaned thorougly

Comfort Glow Vent-free Gas Heater CGN18B


the pilot light is operated off a millivolt generator. that is the small tube directly in the pilot flame. its purpose is to generate a small dc current which is connected to the pilot valve inside the main valve. setting the control to pilot opens just the pilot gas supply. when operating normally the millivolt generator keeps a small electromagnet pulled in that keeps the pilot gas supply open. if it don't work the pilot gas supply valve closes. replace the thermocouple.
