SOURCE: heater won't stay on
This product does indeed have a problem with the safety switch, that is only supposed to kick in when the unit is turned over. I had a total of 3 units sent to me from Kaz. Each time the unit would work for a short time, then slowly begin to turn off and on. I finally decided to take the unit apart and look for any obvious problems. There is a weighted swivel that will raise a contact point to turn the unit off in an emergency. The contact points would spark off and on, depositing a black carbon on them until they would no longer allow power to pass through. I cleaned the contacts with a fine finger nail file and bent one of the contact arms inward to make better tension between the contacts. This allowed the unit to stay on for longer periods of time. But even with the thermo-stat turned all the way up, the unit does not stay on long enough to heat the room. In effect, what happens is the contacts will continue to ark, putting black deposits on the contacts until you're back to square one. Apparently the unit also has a thermo-stat related problem. I'm sending the unit back again (they only made me send the power cord last time), but will insist on a different model this time. Good Luck

SOURCE: Heater will not stay light
90% of the time, this problem is caused by either a clogged gas orifice on the pilot light's gas line, or by dust/debris in the pilot air intake, as stated by tradesman1. Start by blowing compressed air through the pilot air intake, both directions. If that doesn't solve the problem, remove the pilot assembly, then the pilot orifice, and blow compressed air backwards through the small orifice. The bottom line is that anything that causes the pilot flame to reduce in size will trigger the oxygen depletion system and that will result in the unit shutting itself off. This is a safety measure. Other possible causes: insufficient gas pressure to the unit, high altitude, defective thermocouple.

You're drawing more amps than your line is equipped for. Rather than modifying your electric, unplug something on the same line to reduce the current draw.
