Hi Cindy,

It seems that your heater is not sensing the flame is lit and is shutting gas supply off. There should be what is called a flame sensor, it is a thin pc. of metal that sticks out into where the flame when lit.

This usually gets charred and dirty, if you unscrew it and clean it with a soft cloth then re-insert it, it will get you by. You should get a new sensor when you have a chance.

Good luck and be sure to disconnect from any power source or turn unit completely off when orking on it.

Thanks,
Paul

Pilot won't stay lit on Dyna glo wall mounted heater


I would check the flue out side first to make sure it is not blocked. If flue looks good i would try cleaning or replace thermalcoupl. Most of the dyna glo heater i have worked on have a thermal pile instead of thermalcoupl. If you have a thermal pile then i would lite pilot and hold knob down for about 3-5 minutes before you turn gas valve knob to on. If that doesnt work let me no and i can give you somemore ideas. I hope you get it working. What is the tempature out side?

It sounds like the thermocoupler is either not adjusted into the flame properly, or you may have gotten a bad one. The thermocouple is the main thing that makes the pilot work.

We had a problem keeping the pilot light to stay on, and this site recommended that it could possibly be the thermocoupler that was causing our problems also. We ordered the thermocouple, put it on,hooked it back up and it worked great! Thank you so much.
ordered thermocouple from www.masterparts.net
