Probably dust in the pilot safety ODS chamber. I like to flush the pilot with rust buster. but shop air will work. More here

The thermocouple is bad or not aligned properly. It is the metal bar in front of the pilot light. This bar senses the heat put off by the pilot light. If it does not get hot it will not allow the gas to flow. You either need to align it so that it is in front of the pilot light and receives enough heat to allow the gas valve to operate or possibly the thermocouple has gone bad and needs replacing.

It could also be that you are not waiting long enough. The thermocouple must sense the heat for at least one minute or more before it will let the gas valve turn on. Turn everything to off for at least five minutes. Re-light the pilot light and let it burn for at least one minute and then try turning the knob to on.

From what you have described there appears to be dust, dirt or pet hair in the pilot or the pilot tubing, as well as the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS). OR your heater may be the wrong gas type. In other words, you have Propane Gas and the heater is a Natural Gas heater (or vise versa). Look for the manufacturers tag on the side or back of the heater. It will tell you the model number, serial number and gas type. Even with this, on rare occasions, the manufacturer's plate may be incorrect. The only way to be sure is to remove the front cover of the heater and look at the control valve. It should be marked LPG or NG.

Why does my blue flame ventless propane heater go out for no reason?


Did the gas man use a manometer when the gas pressure was adjusted up? The three basic types are 1. round needle guage capable of measuring approximately 30" water column pressure, 2. U-tube manometer filled with a clear or red glycol, and 3. digital guage.

It sounds like the gas pressure is a few inches water column too high which could cause the pilot flame to actually lift off the thermocouple tip causing flame failure after the gas valve opens. More is not necessarily better when it comes to gas pressure. Normal propane manifold pressure is around 10.5" w.c. with maximum inlet pressure of 14" w.c. This pressure can be accurately measured with one of the above listed manometers by tapping into the manifold downstream of the gas valve or in the pressure tap on the downstream side of the gas valve. Most normal 100% redundant gas controls have an individual pilot adjusting screw in the valve itself for adjusting the pilot size and pressure independent of manifold pressure.

The pilot ignites without a problem. It will stay lit. However, when you try to kick the flame on, it will burn for about 15-20 seconds then the whole unit kicks off.


Sounds like a over heating or a thermostat problem. Is there a safety (high limit) thermo in that unit? Replace it or jumper it temporarily to see waht happens.
Before you do that, make sure the air flow is in no way restricted causing over heating in the unit and for the thermo to open, shutting down the unit.

My Kozy heater turns off after a few minutes, I then have to re light it and when it kicks on again after a few mins it turns off again. It will stay lite if I turn it down but when it goes on agin it will...


If you have a standing pilot that wont stay lit and you have to keep relighting it, it can only be a couple of things that will do this.
1. Try tighting the thermocouple at the gas valve. (this is a thin copper line that goes from the gas valve and goes to the pilot light.)
2. Make sure that the tip of the thermocouple is in the pilot light flame.
3. Make sure that the thermocouple is clean.

The pilot works and the flame comes on but when the flame goes out so does the pilot light


Hi,
Uswually when that happens it is because the pilot is too weak... the pilot is not focused on the thermocouple properly or the thermocouple is weak...

You will need to figure out which of these things are causing your problems...
