Hi there my home is about 3 years old. i have noteced black dust on the doors window frames basically everywhere. i don't know why.


Does this unit have an blower? If so there is no filter and this can happen.
Direct vent means no open flame in the house but you might still have a combustion problem. Open the front cover and check for black soot. Also check outside at the flue for soot. If so then you need to get this thing checked. Also make sure the little door for the pilot is closed. May have a improper install here if only 3-years.

I've got a 23 yr old 30DV3 whose pilot light works, and the thermostat & heating element seem to work, but not well. With the thermostat set at full hot, it just barely throws out any heat at all. ...


As I'm sure you already know, Empire Comforts Systems, no longer makes that model heater and hasn't for some years, now. I mentioned that, because if your unit needs parts, they may be almost impossible to get. In any event, there are a several things that may be causing the problem.

  • Low Gas Pressure - Burner is not receiving enough gas. Check for obstructions and have gas pressure at the unit checked.
  • Clogged burner or air intake (venturi valve) is partially clogged. Clean burner ports and venturi valve.
  • Gas line Shut Off Valve at heater not fully open. Check Gas line Shut Off Valve.
At 23 years old, you've gotten your money's worth out of this unit and it may be time to replace it. Empire makes several Direct Vent Wall Furnaces that are rated as High Efficiency Furnaces. In the long run, the money saved in fuel cost, would be worth installing a new one.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

I have a wall mount 25000 btu empire. It keeps clicking on and off trying to light up. after about 4 or five tryes it starts, runes for a short time and shuts off. A funny noise comes from the burner area....


You're heading in the right direction. Especially, with a 10 year old heater that's never been cleaned.
Using a vacuum (a shop vac is great for this) that has a hose and brush attachment will do the job. Also, canned compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with) can be used to blow out the pilot tip and reach areas the vacuum can't.

After you've cleaned the heater, check for wear and damage to any of the internal parts. Especially, any wiring that may look burned or frayed. Also, be sure that the exhaust vent damper is working properly and the exhaust vent piping is free from obstructions. The clicking you heard may have been from the automatic safety damper switch.

If after 10 years you can't find your Owners Manual, here's a link to it. It will assist you any cleaning the unit and spot any problems.

Good luck and remember to clean the wall heater annually.

Need an electrical diagram for an empire WFA 35s wall heater. It is at least 30 years old. Thanks


Unfortunately, Empire Comfort Systems hasn't made that wall heater in years. Never the less, you may get lucky by calling Empire direct @ 800-851-3153 and ask for Technical Service. Maybe one of the old timers can help you out.

Empire wall heater with wall vent pilot light


It sounds like the gas valve is dropping out. Make sure the system is venting the exhaust(no restrictions). Then make sure all your wiring connections in the unit are tight. In a millivolt system if all wiring connections aren't tight and clean your circuit will drop in millivolts and the gas valve will drop out. The gas valve requires a certain millivolt to stay open. I hope I was of some assistance!! Good luck!!

Empire DV35 not hot enough


sounds like heater needs to be cleaned . I would recamend that you call a heating and cooling company to come out and take heater apart and clean. You can take front panel off and make sure you are getting go airflow through bottom of heater. If you feel comfortable with cleaning the heater yourself you can buy a burner brush at your local hardware store. If you decide to do this let me know and i can try an and help you with what you need to do. If you have the manual it will also tell you what to do to clean.
