Question about Ace Hardware ML250TPA Infra-Red Wall Mounted Panel Heater

1 Answer

My desa vent free propane heater's pilot light starts fine but when the thermostat kicks in it looks like the pilot flame gets sucked up into the heating flame. Once the heater shuts of the pilot light is out. Very frustrating in the greenhouse. Any idea? Thanks

    I will try that, even though the heater is basically brand new, purchased in October. Can it get dirty that quickly? Thank you!

I would turn your has off. Then take apart your pilot gas line, and clean out where the gas come out. There is a very small hole there that will get dirty.

    No it should not get dirty that fast. I was unaware that the unit was new.

Remove the small copper colores tubing going from the gas valve to the pilot assembly. Take it to a good hardware store that sells heaters and ask them for a new one.It is called a thermocouple.

I cant get the logs to light only the pilot light


Can you smell gas when the pilot goes out? If so, you may have too much pressure. If you just changed bottles and didn't do anything else, look at the flame sensor. It may be the problem. Good luck...Lee
