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: 150,000 BTU propane Reddy Heater shuts off after ignition

Is there a frost line on your LP tank, if so you may need to replace the tank with a larger tank or refill your tank. This can happen if the tank your using is too low or too small (use 100 lb tank or greater). If there is no frost line it may be an issue with the thermocouple. The manufacturer offers a service manual and owner's manuals on there site. This should assist you... www.desatech.com Thank you

Does a hayward gas heater have filters within the unit?


there are no filters in these units. there is a thermostat, low limit switches, high limit switches, pressure switch (1-5lbs), fireman switch etc. because it is a propane unit, fires and runs, i would suggest checking the supply pressure for the propane. if there is less than 30lbs in the tank, the system may not run properly. if it was plumbed with the wrong size supply pipe, that could be an issue.

Heater wire fire up but will not stay running


that code signifies an ignition failure. as your system is propane, ensure that the pressure from tank is over 30psi. under that, the system may not run properly. check to be sure that all the shut off valves are in the right position. get a technician to bleed the lines. if the heater hasnt been run for a while, it is common for the LP to not flow properly. if the outside temperature is low, this will also affect how the propane works

I have a propane heater that sits on the tank and has the ceramic plates for dissipating the heat. Instead of a nice blue flame, it has a lot of orange flame. Why?


I would shut off valve to heater and remove it from propane bottle. Carefully clean with soft bristle brush and blow out with medium pressure air. Reinstall and light heater and see if flame quality has improved. Often dirt,dust,and lint can build up in burner and cause fuel to not get good enough air to fully combust. Hope this helps you.Thanks

LOL.... your fuel is not boiling.... the closer propane gets to its vaporization point (-44%F) the less vapor it produces. clean the snow off of the 100# or lay it on its side to give it more surface area for vaporization.
