Try to take pilot assembly apart and clean real good. This will work most of the time. If it does not work for you, you will need to replace the gas valve. It's expensive but I'm about positive that cleaning it will fix it. Gas burns dirty and after a couple seasons a scale builds up that causes this problem. It's pretty common and nothing to worry about after it's cleaned. Good luck.

yes you can, but is complicated, involves changing injector, burner, and reprogramming the PCB for the new gas type. Get a pro to do it for you

Hold the lock button down for approximately one second to switch between locked and unlock. If it is locked when you turn it on you will need to do this first

SOURCE: I have a smell that
Hi David, this sounds to me like an internal problem with incomplete combustion, and this is why you have this continuing smell, as the fuel is not being completely burned off. Even with the main and secondary filters on this type of heater, they can and will pick up matter and cause this type of problem. These are very dependable heaters, and very much worth it to have it serviced by a shop that is near you that can work on this type of heater. To be honest with you, if you are still smelling this petrol, something is not working properly, so I would take it in for a deeper service. After getting this minor problem solved, it is very important to continue to clean the filters as most people will not take the time until they loose all operation and wonder why? So, yes if you can take it in this I recommend, as I am not on site to help you trouble shoot it properly. But, the problem is incomplete combustion due to an obstruction of some king, and with these fumes I wouldn't want you to have what we call is delayed combustion which is not good! I hope this has been of help to you David, and please keep me posted.
