The 16.4 oz propane bottle contains 1.02 pounds of propane.
1.02 lbs propane equals 16.320 oz
16.320 oz equals 22.032 BTU’s.
The RMC-8001SS has two settings, maximum and minimum
The Max setting is rated at 8,000 BTU hour.
22.032 divided by 8,000 equals 2.754 or 2-3/4 hours
The Min setting is rated at 4,500 BTU hour.
22.032 divided by 4,500 equals 4.896 or 4.8 hours

One 16.4 ounce bottle will burn 22.032 BTU’s @8,000 BTU’s per hour for a period of approximately 2-3/4 hours and @ 4,500 BTU’s per hour for a period of approximately 4.8 hours.

Seems like the valve is not opening up fully or the adjustment is out of adjustment. Try adjusting the flame.

LOL.... your fuel is not boiling.... the closer propane gets to its vaporization point (-44%F) the less vapor it produces. clean the snow off of the 100# or lay it on its side to give it more surface area for vaporization.

Hi Teresa,
The problem is with the pilot flame and the way that it hits the thermocouple....the flame needs to contact the thermocouple all the time or it cools off and goes out. The heat from the main flame will keep it on when on high fire, but when turned sown the pilot does not keep it hot enough and often will "pull" the pilot flame away from the thermocouple and cause it to go out.
I have had to bend the pilot assemblies and/or the hood or cover over the pilot flame to make it stay on...
This takes time and experimentation and often the installer just does not want to do that because they are contracted by the job and fiddling around costs them money...but it IS their responsibility to make sure the equipment works properly and safely before they leave...
Don't be afraid to raise a ruckus to get your heater working properly...

### How di i light the pilot light

Be sure that the gas line to the heater is ON.

Looking at the Control Knob on top of the heater, you note that he knob has 3- positions: OFF, Pilot, ON.

Turn the control knob to the Pilot position and push down on it. If it does not go all the way in and your do not feel strong pressure pushing back at you, it is not directly in the pilot position. (Reposition the knob slightly and try again). Once You're sure the knob is directly in the pilot position and the knob is depressed, continue to hold it in and press the Ignitor button next to it. You will hear a loud click. If possible, watch the pilot assembly inside the heater when you do this. That way you can see if the pilot lit the first time. If not repeat, pushing the ignitor.

If the gas line had been turned off to the heater, the pilot may not light the first couple of tries, due to air being in the gas line. If that is the case, hold the control knob in until you smell gas, let off, wait 5 minutes and repeat the lighting sequence.

Once the pilot does light, continue to hold the control knob in for 1 minute. This will allow the Thermocouple to heat up completely. Ease off the control knob and the pilot should remain lit. If it does, turn the control knob to ON and the burner will light.

Now you're ready to set the temperature or comfort level. You do this by raising or lowering the flame height. The higher the flames, the more heat it puts out. The lower the flames, the less heat it puts out. The stripe on the knob represents the flame heights - Narrow stripe, lowest setting, widest strip, highest setting. Or your specific model may simply say Low, Medium, High.

If you do not have the Owners Manual for this heater go to http://www.desatech.com/
click on Wall Heaters and enter the Model Number of your heater. You can then download and print the Owners Manual.

Hope this helped to get you up and runnig.

### I have a TT15S serial number 06 005818 Single Tank top heater. Gas is coming out around the black off, low, medium, high knob. And yes it lights up fire if I try to light the main heater

If its leaking gas STOP using it immediately and turn off the gas line shutoff valve to the heater. Then call a professional service person to check and/or repair the unit. This is a very dangerous situation.

### I have a propane heater that sits on the tank and has the ceramic plates for dissipating the heat. Instead of a nice blue flame, it has a lot of orange flame. Why?

I would shut off valve to heater and remove it from propane bottle. Carefully clean with soft bristle brush and blow out with medium pressure air. Reinstall and light heater and see if flame quality has improved. Often dirt,dust,and lint can build up in burner and cause fuel to not get good enough air to fully combust. Hope this helps you.Thanks

### Mr. Heater Buddy Portable Problems...

ok, your unit must be propane. look on the back where the propane line feeds the nozzle. there should be a very small copper line with two spade connectors on it. this is your millivolt generator line. with a flame at the nozzle the generator makes a very small electrical current which feeds to the main valve and keeps it open. take a piece of wire and jumper these two spade connections together and try lighting the unit again. if it stays on, the hi limit is shot. you can get by with the connections jumped out, you just don't have the safety margin if it were connected. IF with the spade connections jumped out the unit still shuts off, the generator tube needs to be changed.
