SOURCE: can not get the bricks to light on my empire corcho

I have the same htr in Mich. & have worked on gas htrs.for many years.
Does the flame go out when you let go of the button to lite it?
If it does, then the thermocouple is bad.

If the flame stays on, but goes out when you turn the dial,
the gas regulator is bad.

Probably a little more expensive to buy new then to fix it.

Michael.

SOURCE: My mother has a 3

Hopefully, Becca the unit won't have to be replaced at this time. It sounds like the burner(s) is clogged and and needs to be cleaned To do this, turn the pilot light OFF and allow the unit to cool. Remove the front of the heater cabinet to access all of the inside workings. Carefully remove the 3 ceramic plaques and set them aside, where they won't get broken.Using a vacuum cleaner that has a hose, brush attachment and crevice tool. Vacuum all of the interior of the heater that you can reach with the brush attachment and crevice tool. Then turn your attention to the burner(s), Vacuum them thoroughly using the brush attachment, then switch to the crevice tool attachment and vacuum all the little holes on the top of the burner(s) thoroughly. Before reassembling the heater, carefully vacuum the ceramic plaques on both sides using the brush attachment. Be careful not to drop them. Then reinstall the plaques and the front of the heater cabinet.
Light the pilot and allow it to burn for 2 minutes, before turning the control knob to ON. Watch the plaques and the flames to see that burn as they should after turning it ON.

If the above didn't solve the problem, depending on the age of the heater, it may be time to replace it.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Since it hasn't been used in at least 15 years, what you're seeing is the dust, dirt and spider webs that are being burned up by the heater. The strong smell is because of the clogged burners. Best suggestion is turn it OFF let it cool completely and thoroughly clean the unit. It may need to be dismantled some so that you can reach and clean everything. A shop vac with a house and brush attachment works well to accomplish this. Pay particular attention to the burner(s) and vacuum them several times. Dry clean everything you possibly can. Then reassemble the heater and relight the pilot and give it a try.

In closing, I must say, having been in the hearth business for 15 years, I' am totally shocked, that after 2 years of neglect, that a 15 year old gas heater would even light.
