See if the ignitor wire came loose.

There are no repair centers anywhere. The people that work on these things are a local propane supplier or a rental center.

SOURCE: Turns on and Turns off

Does the furnace burners light? You could have a bad thermostat or a flame sensor. To check if it is thermostat turn power off to furnace take thermostat off wall take wires marked r & w and connect them together then turn power back on. If furnace comes on and stays on then you need a new themostat if not it is the flame sensor inside furnace. Also check furnace filter

The flame sensor is dirty - have the unit serviced. Modern furnaces require regular maintenance!

SOURCE: Gas wall heater won't light

You need to bled the line longer and when you get lited hold down for a good minute.When the gas gave out ,there could trash in the line.I would take the line off and blow gas through it undtil you can smell it.

Make sure that the thermocouple is well into the flame. Check to make sure the other end is secure into the gas valve. Check for any poor connection both gas and electric. If the LP cylinder is icing up, it is a vaporizing problem and the heater is sucking the available gas out of the cylinder faster than it can vaporize. You will need a larger cylinder.

Is the propane tank actually full? Is the valve turned on? You might want to try a different regulator on it.

Hi There. You have not mentioned that you also replaced the spring inside the gas valve suited for propane, please check. I strongly advise not to modify the unit's ignition system nor bypass safety device, this is for your own good. Check the gas valve spring first.

If you're using propane gas, the banging noise you hear is air in the gas line, which means either your tank is empty or the the tank regulator is frozen (if it's ,below freezing in your area). If the tank regulator is frozen, soak a bath towel in hot water and quickly place it around the regulator. It should thaw fairly quickly and the gas will start flowing again. However, you may need to purge the air out of the gas line to gas log burner. Rather than using the electronic ignitor, do it manually, until you smell gas, left off the control knob and wait 5 minutes and then try lighting the pilot electronically.

If you're using Natural Gas, it may still be a pressure problem to the burner. You'll need to have that professionally checked.

Hope this helped to solve your problem.

We had to switch propane tanks and run more copper tubing, our old tank ran empty. We are trying to relight heaters but they won't light. Is there something we need to do to the heater so they will...


yes - your husband is right, there is a auto cut off on the regulator itself. there is a chance that the cut off has failed. you can check this by simply undoing the gas line that leaves the regulator and cracking open the valve and see ( hear/smell ) if gas is coming out,, if gas is coming out then the cut off is working and the problem is down the line somewhere ( like another valve right at the heater ) ---... if you hear no gas coming out then the cut off is bad and you will need to replace the regulator with a new one.
also check for the smell and sound of gas at the heater while you are trying to light it -- ( NOTE: don't hold the gas button down to long if you do hear/smell gas and it is not lighting , because as soon as it does start it will flash in a BIG fire ball,,, between testings -- always let it air out some and then try again ) --- if the igniter is not lighting the fuel then use a lighter or a propane torch to get it going,, I have seen the thermo coupler go bad on the units and that will only allow the flow of gas during ' pilot ' light mode but will go out right away when you move the switch to ' ON '. ( just food for thought ).
stay warm out there ---

Propane dryer. Can hear the heat kick on but dryer doesn't heat


Try looking at the gas regulator. It should have a solenoid that opens and closes. It sounds to me like this is not opening or is only opening partially. I had this same problem on an oven.

Propane burns very dirty,I bet the burner and pilot are clogged with soot.In techinical terms the sound your hearing is blowback.If you check the burner/pilot you will likley see black soot,remove them and clean with soap and water.

Ignition


When you turn the gas valve to High or Ignite position..do you hear or smell gas going into the gas burner? If yes, then look at the position of the igniter in respect to the gas burner to see if it generates a spark either with or without gas running.. .. if you have gas entering the gas burner.. and if you've used the Grill a lot.. the jets may be clogged and need cleaned to allow gas flow thru them.. if the jets from the burner are clogged in or near the igniter..it may not ignite easily untill you get lots of propane in the area.. Check the gas jets to make sure you have gas coming out and then check the igniter to make sure it generates a spark.. Hope that helps..
