There may be an obstruction in the burner tube where the gas mixes with air. look for a spider web or similar.

What does ILO mean?

Ignition lock out
This happens when a safety feature kicked in and the heater tried to start up again. Turn the power off at the breaker for 10 seconds and try again.
It should fire up or give an error code for possible issues

Hey Tbs,
You are correct in assuming it will get worse.. if you are leaking antifreeze, it wil not fix itself (DO NOT put any kind of "radiator stop leak" in it) .... take it to a qualified professional and tell them whast happening and let them repair it!! (a radiator shop - NOT the dealer)..

I need the sheet to correct the wistle noise on the 1004 e moore

The whistling noise may be from an improper air intake shutter control adjustment. For a Natural Gas Unit the air shutter control should only be open about 1/4 " . Also, when checking that, look to see if it's clogged with dust and lint. If so, vacuum it out using a crevice tool on the hose of your vacuum.

Vent-free Gas Appliances should be cleaned and serviced at least once a year. Usually in the Fall before firing it up for the heating season. Twice if you have house pets. Especially one's that shed a lot.

My flame keeps going out. i can press the reset button and some times it will work for a week sometimes only 30 seconds. It is an intermittent igniter. The flame seems to "roll back" when it...

Your GMS unit should not be intermittent ignition but direct electronic ignition. In any case the flame should never roll out of the chamber. There can be a few reasons for the roll out but sometimes a good cleaning of the heat exchanger and a combustion analysis can cure that. The intermittent flame issue is probably a dirty flame sensor and can be cleaned with light sand paper or steel wool. Be careful not to touch the igniter only the flame sensor. It is usually on the opposite side of the burners from the ignition source. Hope this helps :)

if you have incorrect gas line size when it kicks on the lack of gas pressure to the unit will cause a wistling. make sure you have enough gas to the unit
