Question about Dyna-Glo Heating & Cooling
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.

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.

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.

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