SOURCE: Empire Wall Heater(propane) won't stay lit

John Mac here...the solution was that we had shut the pilot off for the summer, and birds had made a nest inside the heat exchanger...coming in through the direct vent. Cleaned out the nest, and it works perfectly. My technician recommends that I leave the pilot buring through the summer to prevent this in the future.

SOURCE: install and hot wire heater

You can be assured that the element is 240 volt. The fan motor is also rated at 240 volt. the wires you have black - black are the connections you make to the line. Use a 12/2 with ground. Use a double pole 20 breaker in your panelbox. The green wire is the equipment ground - connect this to the bare wire from the 12/2. On the 12/2 cable - there will be two colors, one black and one white. Wrap a couple of turns of black tape on the white wire both at the heater location and on the white in the panelbox. connect the 12/2 to your 2 pole breaker, the black wire and the taped white to the breaker.

SOURCE: Century Dyna-Glo Propane Construction Heater, fan stays on?

The heater is designed to continueously run the igniter , so as if there is a flame-out ,it will reignite the burner,and not dispurse unburned gas into your enviroment.

How to repair exhaust fan rattle?


You can look at fan closely and see if there is a set screw holding the fan to the shaft. It could be loose causing the rattle. If that is not the problem then see if the shaft has a lot of play in it. It could be worn out and allowing the fan to rattle. If that is the case then replace the fan

Coleman evcon electrical furnace doesnt force air intermittently


It sounds like the fan is not functioning. With the breaker, SSU, and/or power off check the wiring, tighten any loose wiring, and make sure nothing is blocking the fan from spinning. Check to see if it will spin by hand, if there is access. If it does, and you have power, then the fan motor may need to be replaced.

Does this help? Let us know.

Gas is on can hear ignition. Doesn't light. May not have gas to heater. Air in line?


Check also to see if the valve on the gas valve itself is in the "ON" position. Is it on or off?
If it is on, then you may in fact have air in the gas line that needs to be purged.
BE CAREFUL WHEN PERFORMING THESE STEPS!! ESPECIALLY IF PROPANE GAS - LPG!!!!!!
Have a large piece of cardboard or the front cover/door of your heater will suffice.
If solid pipe to heater, then there is a union, if you have flexible gas line to heater then you have a flare nut.
With NO flames or sparks even close - NO SMOKING !!!Carefully & slowly loosen either the union or the flare nut with gas valve open. You will hear hissing sound. Leave open for about 30 seconds, until you smell the gas. Carefully & slowly tighten either the union or the flare. Take the cardboard or door, and fan towards the heater to push away and fan away any gas fumes. Do this for about a minute or so. Very Important you do this, again especially if Propane. Propane is a very heavy gas & it will linger in a "Puddle", unseen puddle near the heater. If you did not fan away these fumes, when the heater starts to ignite - .... not so pretty.
Anyway, if you had air in line, heater should fire. If it didn't try above steps one more time. If it still does not fire, possible bad gas valve.

Had a problem with the thermostat connected to GW-50-4 Wall furnace. One fan is not working at all, the other fan runs continuously even when the furnace isn't running. Is there a control swith or...


Jake, it sounds like the motor coil wiring on the blower that doesn't work may be damaged or has been disconnected.

Regarding the one that is still running. The automatic fan control is located on the bottom of the blower assembly. The fan control is a nonadjustable, automatic type. The fan control will require between 3 and 7 minutes of main burner operation before the fan control "closes" and activates the blower. The blower will continue to run between 3 and 7 minutes after the main burner shuts off, before the fan control "opens" and deactivates the blower. In which case, if it continues to run and run and run, the fan control switch (part # R-2503) may have failed and will need to be replaced. You can order the part from Empire Comfort Systems Tech Service 800-851-3153. Have the Model Number, Serial Number of the heater handy, as well a the Part Number. when you call.

To help you further, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual for that model wall heater. You can download and print it for future reference.

I hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Dv55ip empire wall gas furnace, the fan is very loud, needs help what to do.


Buday, it sounds like the blower fan and motor needs cleaning and oiling. This should be done annually and you can do it yourself. This should quite things down a bit.

According to your Owners Manual, here's what you need to do.

Servicing and Oiling the Fan Motor:
The fan motor should be cleaned and oiled once each heating season.
To reach the motor, withdraw the metal shroud surrounding the fan
blade by removing the screws on each side. Oil holes are located
on the top at each end of the motor. Use a few drops of #10 motor
oil. To clean the motor, blow air through its ventilation openings
with a vacuum cleaner or low pressure air source (canned air with a
straw nozzle like you clean your computer with works well).

I have a model 5BS520C. The light works but when I pull the chain for the fan, I hear the sound of three speeds but the blades do not turn. ed.pfohl@gmail.com


Here some toubleshooting:

Problem 1. Fan will not start.
Probable Cause
1. Fuse or circuit breaker blown.
2. Loose power line connections to the fan, or loose wire connections in the switch housing.
3. Reversing switch in neutral position.

Suggested Remedy
1. Check main and branch circuit fuses or circuit breakers.
2. Check line wire connections to fan and switch wire connections in the switch housing.
3. Make sure reversing switch position is all the way to one side.

WARNING: Make sure main power is turned off.

Problem 2. Fan sounds noisy.
Probable Cause
1. Blades not attached to fan.
2. Loose screws in motor housing.
3. Screws securing fan blade flanges to motor hub are loose.
4. Switch housing binding against the blade hub.
5. Wire connectors inside switch housing rattling.
6. Screws holding blades to flanges are loose.

Suggested Remedy
1. Attach blades to fan before operating.
2. Check to make sure all screws in motor housing are snug (not over-tight).
3. Check to make sure the screws which attach the fan flanges to the motor hub are tight.
4. Check to make sure that the switch housing does not bind against the blade hub.
5. Check to make sure wire connectors in switch housing are not rattling against each other or against the interior wall of the witch housing.
6. Tighten screws securely.

WARNING: Make sure main power is turned off.

Problem 3. Fan wobbles
Probable Cause
1. Setscrew in motor coupling is loose.
2. Setscrew in the hanger ball/downrod assembly is loose.
3. Screws securing fan blade flanges to motor hub are loose.
4. Fan blade flanges not seated properly.
5. Hanger bracket and/or outlet box is not securely fastened.
6. Fan blades could be out of balance.

Suggested Remedy
1. Tighten the setscrew in the motor coupling.
2. Tighten the setscrew in the hanger ball/downrod assembly.
3. Check to be sure screws which attach the fan blade to motor hub are tight.
4. Check to be sure the fan blade flanges seat firmly and uniformly to the surface of the motor hub. If flanges are seated incorrectly, loosen the flange screws and retighten.
5. Tighten the hanger bracket screws to the outlet box, and/or secure outlet box.
6. Interchanging an adjacent (side-by-side) blade pair can redistribute the weight and result in smoother operation.

WARNING: FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY TURN OFF POWER AT FUSE BOX OR CIRCUIT BREAKER BEFORE TROUBLESHOOTING YOUR FAN!!!

Hope helps.
