Question about Dyna-Glo RMC-8001SS Heater

Dyna-Glo RMC-8001SS I am able to light the pilot light but the ceramic panel will not "light" and turn red. The blue flame just flickers over the panel. Is there something to adjust or clean?

My heater will light but when you cut it on low or high it goes out. If you turn it on it's side then light the pilot then turn it upright and turn it on low it will light for about 10sec. and get hot then go out. kev

Replace the regulator. We had three for three with the same problem.

Flame flickers and jumps it will stay lit for a while then just puffs out

The pilot assembly probably has dust in it. With the unit off and cool, use a drinking straw and blow across the opening of where the pilot light flame lights. Do not blow directly into the pilot opening, as the dust will only become more lodged in the orfice. By blowing across the top of the opening, the moving air will 'vacuum' the dust up and out allowing a more staedy blue pilot light to engage the thermocouple. You may have to repeat this processa couple times depending on how much dust is in the opening. These OPD pilots are very sensitive.
