The ones which have a loose heater coil touching the body of the reflector, need to be replaced. When the wall mounting plug is heating up, replace it with a standard one. It should not be loosely connected to the socket.

I have one of the old fashion gas space heaters & it has smoked up my house! You can't see it coming from the heater, but there is soot all over walls & ceilings. What do I do, & is it dangerous?...


Yes, it is very dangerous. You are breathing carbon monoxide and it can be deadly. Turn off the unit and get it serviced immediately. Your heater probably has a blocked flue and will need to be cleaned or the burner has rusted away or is very dirty. Hire a professional to fix/clean the heater or just have it replaced it with a modern heater.

carbon monoxide in any concentration is deadly. It gets in the blood and prevents the blood from absorbing oxygen. Follow the technicians advice and find out why there is this gas in the house.10 ppm is easily achievable and you cannot smell it and won't know it until you feel sleepy

I have Wiiliams direct vent wall furnace. I smell gas only when pilot is on and burner is not on. It does not smell when it is fully running (burner is on)


Dear Alex191: I am shocked and amazed that the Williams heater company is STILL knowingly and willingly selling faulty direct vent gas heaters. My problems took place in 1988! I bought a 30,000 BTU Williams DIRECT VENT from The Home Depot. I took the time to remove window sashes and run gas line to the Williams heater that I had placed in the window aperture. I was glad to finally have heat and be able to heat the area of the house where I stayed. Then I began to smell gas when the Williams was OFF. I traced it to the area where the pilot light gas tubing entered the combustion chamber. I removed the Williams unit and replaced it with an identical make and model and the SAME THING HAPPENED!!! I sat on my bed and almost cried. I had the gas company come out and they labled the problem as a "fuzz leak". The warranty repairman came out and had no idea what to do. Tightening the retaining nut did nothing. I called Williams and even back then they said that they were aware of the problem. They called me back and wanted to send me a part and asked me, "Can you work on it?" I returned the Williams and bought a Perfection-Schwank CONSOL heater that burns the air in the room and vents horizontally to a 4 inch vertical gas vent and was very satisfied with it. When they went out of business I bought an "Empire" brand gas heater. I don't know if I'll ever buy another direct vent heater from anyone. I will be glad to write an affidavit should you decide to suit the Williams company.

What is easy way to replace the thermostate in


Hi, that thermostat should be a wall mount. This heater has only 2 wires and any "Heat only", "millivolt" thermostat will work. Remove the old T-Stat and mount the new one on the wall, only 2 wires and less than a volt so no shock danger, doesn't even matter which wire goes where. Good luck and comment back if you need any help.

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.

Hi i need a coupler i think / for a dyna-glo propane wallheater but i am not sure what the part looks like could you e-mail a pic please yo debbiejoannwallace@yahoo.comit is a D-E37


First of all you must be very careful with working with propane, unlike natural gas,propane is heavier than air and will not dissipate. Coupler (Thermocouple) There many different types, But what they all have in common is the tip. The unit may have what they call a pilot. Most customers know it as the pilot light. once you find the tip in the pilot in the following picture is a type of thermocouple. look at the tip. Then look at yours Follow tip assembly it should be attach to what we call a gas value 58caa1e.jpg

Is there an air filter for my ''Cozy'' Counter Flow Wall Furnace


Cozy most generally doesn't provide a place for a filter in its wall furnaces. I have seen people secure a typical house filter to the outside grill where to return air enters. It's cheesy but works.
