When I put a new propane tank on my Vanguard model#VP30BTB it take a very long time to light. Is this normal?

Nothing other than to hold down the ignition button down for short periods of time.

1st panel on Vanguard 22,000 btu ventless propane wall unit has overshooting flame causing strong exhaust-like odor in house. Has black residue coming out of top vents. No fan on this unit.Help!


good thing that you turned it off as it is now not operating as designed and that makes gas dangerous
call an accredited gas fitter to properly diagnosed the problem and repair/ replace it

I have a 20lb propane tank fells half full or better grill lights but won't heat up why? Put new tank on works fine.


Gas may have settled. Turn it upside down several times. Usually happens when it gets cold outside.

I have a Vanguard propane 5-burner heater. It will not start. The tank is full and there is nothing wrong with the pressure. The pilot light, lights just fine when I press down the selector switch and then...


You gotta wait till the pilot safety thermocouple heats up enough to generate the power needed to hold the safety magnet. Could be a bad thermocouple or safety magnet or simply corrosion in the connection. I would remove that thermocouple and use a pencil eraser to cl;ean out the hole then re install the thermocouple. i would flush out the pilot with solvent to clear any dust if this is indeed a vent free ODS type heater. Then I would retry. Might be all it takes.

Coleman heater model 5445c700 propane camp heater wont light. It did work fine. When I hold the knob in the light position you can hear gas but it barely ignites then goes out. I've tried new gas and...


If you're using a 20lb propane tank (Gas Grill Tank), that may be the problem. Turn off the propane tank at the tank valve and disconnect it from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reattach the heater hose to the tank. Turn the propane tank valve on very,very slowly until it's all the way open. Try lighting your heater now. If the pilot flame height returned to normal, that was the problem.

FYI - The Thermocouple has nothing to do with the length of the pilot flame. It's a safety feature that stops the gas if the pilot flame goes out for any reason.

Hope that solves your problem. Please let me know.

Pilot light too big, how do we adjust pilot light on a Vanguard KV1800?


There is no adjustment for a Pilot Flame's Length on a Vent-free Gas Appliance. However, if you're using Natural Gas and it's a Natural Gas Heater, the normal length of the pilot flame is 2 to 2 1/2".
If it's a Propane Gas Heater and the pilot flame is as long as previously stated, you probably have a pressure problem from your tank. Contact your Propane provider to have them check the pressure on their tank regulator.

I bought a comfort glow vent-less space heater model # CJ18NL. It had a natural gas valve on it and the guy said I could put on a propane valve, which I did. It's not lighting. Is this model only good...


According to the Comfort Glow Website, this is a Natural Gas unit. If you use propane you will need
a minumum 100# LP Cylinder and a pressure regulator. I have a Comfort Glow unit and went through the same process.

If you have it hooked up to a 30lb cylinder without a regulator I would think that if you purged the gas line
of air you should be able to light the pilot.

On a new unit you can expect to push the spark ignitor button at least a dozen times while holding
down the gas valve button.

Good Luck

Propane heater wont work


I'm not sure about that model, but I think you have to hold that button down for a minute or more to "prime" it.

I have a different model coleman propane heater that sits on the 20# tank. Mine is probably getting rusty, last time I used it I had to hold that button down for a long time.

I'm looking for a new heater now myself, as mine won't stay lit outdoors in much wind.
