That is a bad air/fuel mix... could be anything like clogged orifice or just needs to be adjusted.

Check out your warranty support first... and keep in mind poorly burning gas appliance can be EXTREMELY DANGEROUS.

Consider putting in carbon gas detectors in addition to a liberal sprinkling of smoke detectors!!

Be safe

Sounds like a gas pressure problem. Have your gas company check the pressure.

SOURCE: have a comfort glow heater ventless natural gas.

Look for a small hole or two in the part the pilot flame comes out of. These may be partly blocked. They allow air to mix with the gas for the pilot.

I have a Mr Heater infra red propane wall heater. My problem is it turns itself off (pilot light) after running for an hour or two. I have no problem getting it turned back on but for some reason it d


Your pilot flame should be blue with a small yellow tip, and it should cover the thermocouple (a small rod in front of the pilot light). If the flame is too small and doesn't cover the thermocouple, it may be adjusted too low, or you have low gas pressure or you have a leak in your gas line coming in to the heater. If the flame looks like a lazy yellow flame, you are probably not getting enough air to the flame. Check that your air openings around the pilot are not clogged up. If the flame looks like a waving blue flame then you probably have excessive draft at the pilot. If the pilot flame looks good and covers the thermocouple, then the thermocouple might be bad. Best of luck. I hope I have helped.

The heater ignites well, but if it gets a clear blue flame (and it burns very quiet), the thermocouple will glow red and the heater stays on, but when it gets a opaque blue flame (it makes a sound when...


I would start by replacing the thermocouple. It is suppose to keep the gas valve open when in operation. If the mercury in the thermocouple dries out it won't keep the gas valve open and thus the flame goes out. If that does not work then you have a gas valve problem.

My 30,000 btu Blue Flame gas wall heater wont stay lit, pilot light stays lit but the blue flame went out and had smell of gas I shut off the gas supply but, dont know what is the problem thanks, marty


you could have a overdraft problem causing your flame to go out. check your draft setting at the burner and make sure it's not open too wide. If it is, simply close it it slowly and make sure that the flame remains totally blue.

Pilot light flame is mostly yellow. LP gas


Hi,
Thr thing you need to do is take the pilot assembly all apart and blow the dust and dirt out of it.
After burning for many, many hours the air that is move up through the pilot assembly leaves dust and dirt which plugs off a bit of the air and makes the flame run rich. Meaning that it does not get enough air mixed in for complete combustion.
When you clean it you will see the dirt and dust com out of it.
Reassemble carefully just as you took it apart and it will be back to working great again!!

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Cad flame sensor


go to Mr.heater.com and get a CAD flame sensor for any heater with the same btu output. They are all basically the same. The wires will be a different color so just splice them to you old wire harness, there is no wrong way to connect them. I just did the same thing with my dyna glo and it works perfectly. Most heater parts ar interchangeable they just have different wireing.

Well, I just went out this morning and worked on the heater after it would not light last night. Turns out that a spider or moth set up camp in the pilot light intake housing and plugged up the two small mixer holes that pull in air for the pilot light. This would explain the 'yellow-flame'. I took a punch awl and some compressed air and cleaned out the hole, then re-installed the cover and knob. Lastly, I turned and depressed the knob and the pilot light ignited almost instantly, stayed on when I let the knob up, and the heater turned on normally after that. Good luck, I hope this helps.
