SOURCE: pilotlight will not light, getting spark, but no propane.

make sure you have the gas valve knob on turned to pilot while pressing that down while pushing the spark it should light or it is tripped on a safety like rollout switch or oxygen depletion sensor if equipped which all ventless heaters are

SOURCE: I have Legacy ventless propane heater 15,000btu.

Try to take pilot assembly apart and clean real good. This will work most of the time. If it does not work for you, you will need to replace the gas valve. It's expensive but I'm about positive that cleaning it will fix it. Gas burns dirty and after a couple seasons a scale builds up that causes this problem. It's pretty common and nothing to worry about after it's cleaned. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a Rinnai Tropic ventless propane heater. I

The thing with these is over the summer months when they are not in use they get dust inside the ODS safety pilot. When that dust gets in there it cuts down on the oxygen inside and the safety simply shuts down because it was designed to do that. What you need to do is flush the pilot and allow it to dry. I use a product caller but you could use shop air or even a soda straw to blow out the pilot. I used to sell these thermocouples for ODS systems and they are not cheap. Most times they do not solve the problem either because the pilot is dusty. A brand new one won't solve your problem and a cheaper thermocouple don't work on these. More HERE


Here is the whole thing for $52 not a bad price
The thermacouple alone for these cost nearly as much by itself.

SOURCE: ventlessreplaced fanblade /cutwires to motor

I wish you hadn't cut the wires. In any event, it sounds as if you have wired it in reverse. Don't use electrical tape to splice the wires, they may overheat. Use small wire nuts or Heat Shrink Tubing.
For more info check the Installation Manual that came with the blower.
Also, the Model # you listed ... is that for the Comfort Glow heater of the Blower? Or is it the Serial # for the heater?

Unless, it's a super old DESA heater, it doesn't match anything I have.

Thanks,
Rich

First of all you need to give more details with your questions.... is this an atmospheric burner, a ventless, a direct vent or a high efficiency. Since you haven't put this down, I will guess that it is an atmospheric (those who know little about propane always go with the cheapest option) As for your problems....The two are totally unrelated. Check your air gas mixture. it sounds like you need to adjust your burner venturi sleeve.

Cheap charlie pellet stove/pel-pro runs for 10min then shuts down


The auger is controlled by a T-stat on the side of the combustion chamber. Open the side of the stove and you can see the auger motor and the thermostat that feeds it. It has a manual reset button on the back of the thermostat, press it.

Propane was turned off for unrelated problem propane turned back on stove will not lite


If your stove has a standing pilot, it will need to be re-lit.

If this does not help, state the model of your stove.
