Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a customer who has a Warm Morning direct vent propane heater: model DV.203 AMA. His complaint is the thermostat does not seem to work properly. The dial is turned to the lowest setting and it maintains 60 degrees. Is that the lowest it will go or is there something wrong with his thermostat?

Some thermostats have a default lower limit such as 60 degrees to prevent complete loss of heating. The lower limit is not set by the user.

    Thanks for the reply. It seems to be working fine, my customer was just hoping he could have it a little cooler for when they're not there. Thanks again.

SOURCE: Can someone please tell me what is the lowest temperature setting a Fahrenheat 3000 Watt Large Room Fan-Forced Wall Heater Model FZL3004 will turn on at ?

about the only way I can figure is to let the room get very cool and adjust the thermostat to its lowest setting. now turn on the unit. monitor the heat until the stat just opens. the thermostat bimetal will be closed and will open when the bimetal expands and opens its contacts. another way is to hitch up a chart recorder to measure temperature with its output connected to the heater. [too expensive for you or the DIY to accomplish]

Hi ColdinSF,

You need to remove the covers from the unit and blow out the gas lines with compressed air. If you can remove the gas lines blow out the lines and what they connect to like the pilot light and main feed line to the burner. Usually they gunk up with use and just need to be blown out with compressed air to clear the lines again. Maybe you have some dirt or foreign object from your gas tank which has clogged the line. Also check the igniter electric lines as well and make sure everything is connected properly. Especially make sure you tighten the gas lines you remove. Hope this helps.

Regards
Bryan

SOURCE: The heater will not ignite properly and the heater will not shut off

Judging by your pics (helpful, by the way) you have a high limit wired into your thermostat wire. Try disconnecting that wire nut connection in front of your valve and hooking the thermostat straight to the top and bottom posts on the valve (eliminating the high limit). If it runs fine, either the connection was poor or your high limit wire is pinched.

Check with Ebay seller s.a.w.inc for available thermocouples. If that doesn't solve the problem the valve unit will likely need replaced.

I have a DV-55 direct vent... Blower kicks on for about 30 sec after it lights then goes of and continues to cycle this way then finally stays on


Hi,
That is normal...especially if the air is pretty cool when it starts... the air cools the heat exchanger too much and it cycles till everything gets warm... nothing to worry about.. :-)

You need to replace the thermostat if you have to force the contacts to close.

Make sure you get the right type of stat. It appears this is a thermopile millivolt type, as opposed to a standard thermocouple. The stats are not interchangeable.
I noted stats were available at Sears, but there I am sure there are other sources to purchase from.

Is this unit originally set up for natural gas? If so, the burner oriface and the gas valve need to be retro-fitted to propane. This is something only a qualified service technician should attempt as an incorrect retro-fit could cause an explosion resulting in someone getting hurt or even killed.
