SOURCE: wont stay lit

go to this site www dot desatech dot com. Here you'll find parts to repair your heater. a propane heater uses a millivolt generator to sense the flame. along it's cappilary are two push on spde connectors. these connect to the high limit temperature sensor which is mounted on the flame backplate of your heater. to see if it is the high limit shutting down your heater, jumper across the two spade connectors. if the heater stays on, this is your problem. if the flame still goes out, then the millivolt generator is shot.

SOURCE: Torpedo heater wont stay lit.

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.

Bending it will ruin it. You need to find out why the pilot flame is not as strong as it should be.

It is usually caused by bugs or spiders having gotten into the small air mix jet of the pilot assembly and died or built a web or, there is some dirt from the fuel that is partially clogging the fuel tube leading up to the pilot assembly, or plugging the orifice.

my mr heater mh9b won't stay lit. The pilot flame starts acting wierd and making noise after ten to fifteen minutes of being lit and then goes out completely. It can be re-lit but goes out again in a bit. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: pilot light on water heater wont stay lit

The thermocouple has failed. It is the temp probe that goes from the pilot lite burner area to the control valve. Go to your local plumbng repair shop and buy one. Most appliance parts stores have them also. Take the old one with you and they will hook you up with an exact replacement. They are not that hard to change. Usually a nut or 2 screws in the temp bulb area at the burner end and a nut that threads into the control valve.
Make sure before you install the new one that the area where it mates to the gas valve is clean. Should be about a 20 min job including clean up with replacement parts in hand.

I have propane pilot wont stay lit


Sounds like a fuel flow problem. On the wall units, spiders like to get into the pilot an plug it. Try some compressed air in a can.

Propane torpedo lights but doesnt stay lit


I'm confused. First you listed this as a propane torpedo heater. Second, it's a problem with and All Pro PK115 T Forced Air Kerosene Space Heater. And finally, you say "propane torpedo lights but doesn't stay lit."

Which is it? To really help you, I'll need the correct manufacturer's name & model number. And whether it's propane or kerosene fired?

Thanks.
