You need to bled the line longer and when you get lited hold down for a good minute.When the gas gave out ,there could trash in the line.I would take the line off and blow gas through it undtil you can smell it.

Propane heater


Are they both ran off of the same regulator? Is the vent open on the regulator? Do you have a full tank of propane or bottle?. Acts like you are running out of gas. Is there any other appliance that use the same gas supply and are they working? Just asking ? so maybe you can narrow down what the cause is..... Hard to tell with out putting a manometer to check gas pressure. Should be 11 to 14" of water column to gas valve and 10 to 11"WC manifold pressure. Hope this helps.

My fire place elecric starter won't work after running out of propane


Most likely, you need to "bleed the line". The new propane needs to travel to your fireplace, but you have a huge air pocket in there now since it ran dry. It takes forever for the air to "bleed" out through the tiny orifice of a pilot light, especially if the distance from the fireplace to the tank is far.

Kozy world propane wall heater pilot will not light


This can be caused by several things:

1. The inline gas valve running to the the heater is OFF. Turn the valve ON.

2. The gas control knob on the heater is not exactly in the PILOT position. Unless the knob bottoms
out and you feel strong pressure (other than spring pressure) pushing back at you. It's not exactly
in the PILOT Position. Once the pilot lights, hold the control knob in for 30 seconds to 60 seconds
to allow the Thermocouple to full heat.

3. The pilot is dirty and needs to be cleaned, as do the burners.*

4. The LP Gas Tank is empty or to low to maintain te proper gas pressure.

* Here is a link to a demonstration on how to properly clean the pilot & burners.

I bought a comfort glow vent-less space heater model # CJ18NL. It had a natural gas valve on it and the guy said I could put on a propane valve, which I did. It's not lighting. Is this model only good...


According to the Comfort Glow Website, this is a Natural Gas unit. If you use propane you will need
a minumum 100# LP Cylinder and a pressure regulator. I have a Comfort Glow unit and went through the same process.

If you have it hooked up to a 30lb cylinder without a regulator I would think that if you purged the gas line
of air you should be able to light the pilot.

On a new unit you can expect to push the spark ignitor button at least a dozen times while holding
down the gas valve button.

Good Luck

Gas vavles is letting propane gas through the gas control vavle.


If you have propane you better not mess around! with nat gas its lighter than air and drafts or flies away if it can.
not so with propane , its heavier than air and stays down low!! and the most explosive situation is 10% gas/ 90% air !!!! so a small leak??? there is no such thing with propane!! turn off all valves to it and get it fixed by expert this is one repair a handyman should never do!!

Pilotlight will not light, getting spark, but no propane.


make sure you have the gas valve knob on turned to pilot while pressing that down while pushing the spark it should light or it is tripped on a safety like rollout switch or oxygen depletion sensor if equipped which all ventless heaters are

Sta-rite gas heater won't ignite


I am not sure if either of these issues have been solved, but with the AGS light on, you will need to check the flow of water first. If it is below what is needed for the heater, this will light up. If the water flow is fine, then check the water temp on the display panel. If it is readin higher than that of the ACTUAL pool water temp, you need to replace the Thermister.

If the water temp displayed is about that of the pool water, then the Automatic Gas Shutoff will be the next thing to check and replace.

You can tell IF a Sta-Rite heater has been converted by the model number. The Convesion Kit is supposed to come with a sticker stating that the heater has been converted, but there are two options for the kit and the one without the sticker is cheaper.

If you take off the top two halves of the heater, on the Junction Box there should be a Tri-fold card there. Unfold it, if the model number ends with NA it is a Natural Gas Heater, LP would be Propane.
