The first thing I would do is pull it apart and give the bricks a good cleaning with a wire brush to get any soot off. If they are broken beyond the point of replaceing them in the unit you will need new bricks.

Glo warm model FA3 burner one and two flame is too high #3 is fine


The higher flame on those 2 burners may be by rusted out. Of course this depends on how old the heater is and how well it has been annually maintained. Unfortunately, DESA International is no longer in business, but some parts are still available. You just have to search the internet for them.

Weatherking furnace is starting and stopping


This just sounds like a couple of problems. First, your blower is designed to only turn on once the heat exchanger heats up, so the flame will be on for a minute or two before the blower starts. it sounds like your blower is cooling down the heat exchanger too fast and causing it to shut off so it can warm up again...check blower speed for heat, it should be the lowest speed (black wire). Blue=medium speed, red= high speed. second problem could be your flame sensor rod is calcified, you just need to locate this and clean it off with some fine sand paper.it is located in the flames near the burners. Also change your filters, for proper air flow through your heat exchanger.

My Dyna GLo kerosene heater has excessive smoke and yellow flame


I'm wondering the same
Should a duraheat, etc., cylindrical convetion heater's flame be bright yellow, blue , or what? With the old wick the flame was blue, with the catalytic converter glowing red hot. Now with the new wick, I can't even see the CC, because the flame burns a bright yellow. Also I have to really fine tune it now. A wee bit too high, I get smoke and soot. A wee bit too low, same...smoke and possibly flame out.

Glo Warm propane heater started to go out. I blew out the pilot with air compressor. It is staying on, but the middle burner in back of the pilot light is flaming a little above the brick. The other...


sounds like when you blew heater out with air compressor you moved brick so flame isn't hitting bottom of brick like they should. You should try and put brick back on top of flame so that you don't get to much heat on the refractory of the heater.The refractory will take the heat for awhile then refractory will start to break down. Then you will either have to install new refractory or replace heater
