Installed Dyna Glo BF30DTDG-1 NG Heater, pilot / gas knob won't turn-why?

Before turning on gas line valve I installed battery to test igniter, noticed knob won't turn at all one way or the other, even when depressed for pilot lighting mode. Is there a reason or do I have a defective unit?

skypainter, I also am having the exact problem you are. After reading what buffalo said, I removed my glass cover and knocked the pilot piece a couple of times with my screwdriver handle and so far so good. Guess it loosened up the spring. Just hope to get through the cold season.

SOURCE: Torpedo heater wont stay lit.

Do you have the serial number or the manufacture date? There are some design changes and I would need to know the year of manufacture to assist accurately. Usually it is a relay or the thermocouple connection that will affect the unit staying lit.

SOURCE: comfort glo propane ventless heater won't light

I have several of these heaters in my rent houses and love them. The most problem I have is not being able to ignite the pilot with the user control igniter. Remove the screws that hold the front cover in place along with the front cover. Hold the pilot control down and ignite with a lighter. Keep the pilot engaged until thermocouple is warm enough to keep pilot gas flowing. If it will light this way then you need to blow out the pilot orifice. It seems that every year I have to go in after the summer season when the heater is off and clean the pilot/orifice lines with high pressure air. I believe spiders/bugs/dust block pilot orifice when it is not in use. You can also tell that orifice is blocked when you don't get a good blue pilot flame with pressure behind it allowing the flame to submerse the thermocouple. If the the thermocouple is not getting enought heat it will turn pilot gas off for safety reasons.

SOURCE: dyna glo tag along propane heater pilot stays on but when turning

sounds like either a bad thermocouple or more likely a pressure regulator problem. should have unit checked by someone familiar with propane systems.

Heater pilot light will not stay lit after knob is released


99% of the time it is just dirt and dust in the pilot light. NOT a bad thermocouple! These units generate their own power through the pilot light and it has to burn perfectly. Turn off gas supply, remove the cover and the pilot light assembly, including disconnecting the tiny gas line from the gas valve. Blow compressed air in, around and through it to get dust out. Replace everything, use soap bubbles at gas fittings to leak test and light the pilot. I bet it stays lit.

Dyna-Glo 8000pgh. Gas not coming through, Pilot will not light. Any suggestions...besides buying a new one?


First, make sure that On/Off Valve on the gas supply line to the heater is turned ON.

Second, if your burning Propane Gas from a tank, be sure there's gas in the tank.

Thirdly, be sure that the control knob is exactly in the PILOT position. If the Control Knob doesn't go all the way in and you don't feel strong pressure (other than spring pressure) pushing back at you, the knob may be off by a hair one way or the other. Try repositioning the knob and pushing in on it and attempt to light the pilot, again.

The above, are 3 of the most common things that will lead you to believe there's no gas coming through. It's very, very rare for the control valve to fail. Generally, it's caused by forcing the valve to turn when it "appears" to be locked up.

I suspect, that one of the three solutions listed will solve your problem. If not, please get back to me.

How do i adjust the flame on ,my glo-warm propane heater?


if there is any adjustment it will be on the gas valve itself under the front of the unit....should have a little door that pulls down....you should see a knob that says "Higher....Lower" something like that....if the knob only says "ON , Off and Pilot" there is no adjustment

Pilot won't stay lit on Dyna glo wall mounted heater


I would check the flue out side first to make sure it is not blocked. If flue looks good i would try cleaning or replace thermalcoupl. Most of the dyna glo heater i have worked on have a thermal pile instead of thermalcoupl. If you have a thermal pile then i would lite pilot and hold knob down for about 3-5 minutes before you turn gas valve knob to on. If that doesnt work let me no and i can give you somemore ideas. I hope you get it working. What is the tempature out side?

Heater will not light


My first thought is that you have no gas! Check this by loosening the supply connections to the heater until you smell no gas. Then work backward till you find the obstruction.

My heater will not burn unless you hold the knob in once release it shut off


Are you getting the pilot light to work? some gas valves are finicky about where the knob is positioned when trying to light the pilot.

Lighting a glo warm heater


Is this a new heater or have you had it awhile? If new, yuo may have air in the line that will need to be bled out. The heater has a gas valve with a pilot setting on it. Make sure the gas is turned on. Turn the knob to the pilot setting and depress the handle. Holding it down and at the same time, press down on the red button that sparks. You may have to repeat this a few times. Once the pilot lights, continue to hold down on the pilot knob for about 30 seconds. When uou release the knob, the flame should stay o. If it does not, replace the thermocouple. Once the pilot flame is steady, turn the gas valve knob to on.
