Should my wall heater glow red inside?

Only one of the four wall heaters I have in my home glows red inside. Is this indicative of a problem/fire hazard? I don't know what brand it is. Thanks.

What you are experiencing is common if the plaques are either out of alignment or the burner is dirty. I know you said you cleaned it with low pressure air, but you need at least 120 PS. of air to clean the burner and plaques as per the owners manual.

Most ready heaters have a fuel pressure setting on the back of the heater near the fan. There should be two small plastic covers, looking directly at the back, the one on the left can be removed and a pressure gauge installed. The one on the right is slotted for adjustment of pressure. I think the correct pressure for that model is 3.0 lbs.

Since you did not state anything about the presence of a flame, it sounds as if there is a fuel delivery problem. The Photocell is shutting the heater down because it does not see a flame.

Check with Ebay seller s.a.w.inc for available thermocouples. If that doesn't solve the problem the valve unit will likely need replaced.

Cozy gas wall heater won't ignite, pilot light is on


There are two types of igniters, spark-type or glow heater. The glow heaters wear out and crack or break and the spark-type spark gap gets fouled or dirty. Both could have electronics problems that drive the glow heater or spark systems. The Filtrete thermostat is not the issue. While rapping the unit makes the glow igniter come back together to glow again.

Coils aren't glowing red


Most of the new heaters dont glow red. Its a safety thing so it dont catch your sheets or curtains,couch,chair etc on fire. Because of the idiots in this world we cant get a good heater anymore. Thats just the way it is.

Wall covered with snow


You have a defrost problem , due to the " snow " . Most likely , the problem is a bad defrost heater , pt # WR51X10055 , but I would still suggest going thru the motions to make sure . The heater runs about $45.00 .
Pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board . Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it . Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . After about 3 min , look in the freezer , at the bottom , behind the crisper , look for a red glow . If no red glow , unplug the refrig , and reassemble the plug and cover . This no glow , indicates a shorted defrost heater WR51X10055 . It is also advisable to replace the defrost thermostat ( pt. number WR50X10068 ) when replacing the heater . To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The heater , is at the bottom of the coils , held on with 2 screws , and the thermostat , is the 1 " cylinder , with a blue and pink wire going to it , clipped on the top left of the coils .
If you do get a red glow , then the # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp and when to cycle off due to selected temperature

The brick does not glow red you see the flame all the time, goes up pass the brick. Is this repairable or dangerous? (Dyna glo gas wall heater -model RMI-70LP)


Both repairable and dangerous. The burner need blown out with a air compressor. This should take care of it. The unit not glowing red will create CO. Which will make you sick or even can kill you.

The back wall of my fridge is freezing up... I had a repair man replace two sensors and to no avail then I replaced the mother board and that did not work either... what now?


Unplug the refrigerator . Remove the motherboard cover . Remove the blue plug with large wires from the motherboard . Looking at the plug , you'll see wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Using a short piece of wire with both ends striped , insert the ends into wire2 and wire3 . Plug refrig back in . Look in the freezer at the bottom of the rear wall , for a red glow . May take several min . If no red glow , replace the defrost heater AND the defrost thermostat (bimetal ) . If red glow , bad control board .
The defrost heater and bimetal , are behind the rear lower panel inside the freezer section . The heater is at the bottom of the coils , and the bimetal is clipped on at the top of the coils ( blue and pink wire ) .
