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.

After running for a few minutes, my bottle top heaters start flaring and burning irregularly. The same thing happen when I hooked it up to another heater. Also when I turn the gas off it takes a lot of...


Are the propane tanks fitted with a pressure regulator?

The propane gas regulator is one of the most important parts of a propane gas system (or a compressed natural gas system as well).

The purpose of the regulator is to control the flow of gas and lower the pressure from the tank to the appliance(s) in the gas system.

The regulator not only acts as a control regarding the flow and distribution of propane (or CNS) but also as a safety barrier between the high pressure of the tank and the end use appliance(s).

Without it, you can cause serious damage to the appliance's gas valve and create a disaster- fire or explosion.

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.

Dyna-Glo 8000pgh. Gas not coming through, Pilot will not light. Any suggestions...besides buying a new one?


First, make sure that On/Off Valve on the gas supply line to the heater is turned ON.

Second, if your burning Propane Gas from a tank, be sure there's gas in the tank.

Thirdly, be sure that the control knob is exactly in the PILOT position. If the Control Knob doesn't go all the way in and you don't feel strong pressure (other than spring pressure) pushing back at you, the knob may be off by a hair one way or the other. Try repositioning the knob and pushing in on it and attempt to light the pilot, again.

The above, are 3 of the most common things that will lead you to believe there's no gas coming through. It's very, very rare for the control valve to fail. Generally, it's caused by forcing the valve to turn when it "appears" to be locked up.

I suspect, that one of the three solutions listed will solve your problem. If not, please get back to me.

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!!

Wall heater not working properly--sputtering blue flame


Ok, either your fuel pressure is too low or too high.. When you light the unit, Light it in low, then turn it up slowly Just crack open your tank valve.about1/4 turn. The air in the tubes has to be displaced with gas before you get a good flame
