Hi this is tech crazy

the solution and reason to the problem mentioned by you is as follows:

As cold water comes in, it remains at the bottom of the tank because it is denser than hot water. If you use the hot water faster than the heating elements can heat the incoming cold water, and if you consume all of the hot water that the tank holds, you run out of hot water in the middle of your shower. If this seems to happen too often, it could mean that the bottom heating element in an electric water heater has burned out or that your water heater is too small for your house. Or it could mean that you are taking really, really long showers.

Hope this helps u a lot

Please do rate me on the above said solution

Low flame and heat output want 2 clean burners etc

This can be done by using an air compressor. Just simply blow out the orifices and the injection tube. That will clean everything out. This may also be a propane pressure problem. Try cleaning it first and then check the inches of water on propane or natural gas.

DV-35 safety

The Empire DV units have been in production for over 25 years with very few problems and no class action suites. Although the heaters do get hot, so don't wood stoves, kitchen ranges, etc... I suppose they could put a sticker on the cover stating not to put anything on the heater, but I suppose it would burn off eventually. I would not worry about a statement of a faulty furnace because he/she would be fighting with a very large company with plenty of lawyers on the payroll. It should be expected that a heater will produce heat. If the tenant is concerned, remove the heater, install electric heat and let them pay the electric bill. I am sorry but your tenant needs to start using some common sense! There are no safeties built into this unit to detect when someone puts something flammable on it and I know of no heater that does. Remember, you did not make the heater, you did not spend thousands of dollars getting it tested and approval from UL, you may have purchased the heater and had it installed to provide a low cost alternative to other heating equipment but it is not you that is responsible for what has happened. If I were you I would hand deliver a note to each tenant who has this type of heater alerting them of the risk of damage if they left gloves, hats, buckets, etc.. on the heater and have them sign that they read it. The furnace is designed to be safe, burn clean and heat. Good luck.

Empire wall heater with wall vent pilot light

It sounds like the gas valve is dropping out. Make sure the system is venting the exhaust(no restrictions). Then make sure all your wiring connections in the unit are tight. In a millivolt system if all wiring connections aren't tight and clean your circuit will drop in millivolts and the gas valve will drop out. The gas valve requires a certain millivolt to stay open. I hope I was of some assistance!! Good luck!!
