I have a venstar t1700 thermostat which required a 24v transformer, hooked the two wire to R and C. Thermostats lights up and functioning. I have two wires running to propane heater a red wire and whi


R and C are the power terminals to the thermostat allowing it to run on 24 volts and not under battery power alone. Assuming that you used the R and C terminals from the propane heater to power the stat and NOT an external transformer, the W terminal on the thermostat then is connected to the W terminal on the propane heater. W energizes the heating control circuit when the thermostat calls for heat. The remaining portion of the control circuit should be prewired from the factory internal of the heater. If you do NOT have these terminals, more information is required for us to help you.

Heater won't relight after shutting down, but fan continues to run


Roger, you either have a gas supply issue or a voltage problem.
Since I don't know your aptitude and abilities pertaining to LP gas troubleshooting/testing procedures, I don't know how detailed you want to go...basically, make sure your propane tank isn't empty; or that the pressure regulator didn't freeze up. Make sure that it is rated and set for 28" of water column output.
Check to make sure all the wire connections are secure to the flame control terminal block and to each of the hi-limit switches.
Isolate & perform continuity checks to each electrical component, including the gas valve.
You'll need a manometer to test and set the gas input & output water column levels.

When the unit is running,, what color is the flame?
Is there a roaring sound?
Is the flame small and weak?

Internal 1/2 psi propane regulator is not passing gas thru so that heater wont light. Are there recalls? Where can I buy a replacement part? Heater is 2 years old, never lit.


What's the pressure to the heater? It should be a minimum of 11 to 13 water column inches. Also, make sure that your heater is in fact a propane fueled heater. Don't go by whats on the box it came in. Look at the manufacturer's tag(s) on the heater. It may be a Natural Gas unit instead of Propane unit. I've seen this happen before. In which case it won't work and can not be converted.

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

Furnace dont respond to t-stat's command.


Maybe you don't have power going to the unit for the thermostat work.Most thermostat work off low voltages like 24 volts. May the transformer is bad.
