Check with Ebay seller s.a.w.inc for available thermocouples. If that doesn't solve the problem the valve unit will likely need replaced.

SOURCE: wont stay lit

If the pilot flame does not touch the thermocouple, the heater will do exactly what you describe.

Get a short piece of copper tubing that will fit snugly over the thermocouple and bend the short piece so that it is in the pilot flame.

SOURCE: need parts: pilot assembly and thermocouple

THe thermocouple either has 2 wires or a coppr tube going to the gas valve. They can be bought at a good hardware store or a plumbing supply. The length of the wires or copper tube will be the determining factor as to which one you need. As these thermocouples, when heated generate a small electric charge tha keeps the gas valve open. Should cost no more than $10-15 USD

SOURCE: Pilot on logs won't stay lit

Hold pilot button longer. if this doesn't work your Thermopile has gone bad and will not generate enough Millivolts to keep gas valve pilot open. A new thermopile will generate 750 millivolts. It cost less than $20 dollars but is difficult to replace. You should call a certified technician. They will charge you about $100.00

I have a Vanguard wall heater model VN18TB that will not stay lit and the electric igniter won't work


The ignitor is battery operated. Remove the button and replace the AAA battery wit the (+) going INTO the body (-) against the button.

The heater has a pilot with an Oxygen Depletion Sensing (ODS) safety shutoff system. The ODS/pilot is a required feature for vent-free room heaters. The ODS/pilot shuts off the heater if there is not enough fresh air. If the heater will not stay lit with plenty of fresh air available - this may be faulting. Likewise, a mispositioned thermocouple will not sense a flame and fail, too.

Your DESA/Vanguard Vent-free, Blue Flame Heater has a pilot assembly that is equipped with and Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) . When this becomes clogged with dust, lint, spider web, etc, the pilot may light and burn for a few minutes, but will soon shut down. As the ODS senses that there is not enough oxygen for safe combustion. This mimics a faulty thermocouple. A good indication that the pilot is dirty, is when the pilot flame curls upward and looses contact with the thermocouple. Cleaning the pilot and it's ODS with canned air and a straw nozzle (like you clean your compute with) should solve the problem.

To further help you, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual for your Model, as well as a link to how to clean the pilot & ODS

Pilot light too big, how do we adjust pilot light on a Vanguard KV1800?


There is no adjustment for a Pilot Flame's Length on a Vent-free Gas Appliance. However, if you're using Natural Gas and it's a Natural Gas Heater, the normal length of the pilot flame is 2 to 2 1/2".
If it's a Propane Gas Heater and the pilot flame is as long as previously stated, you probably have a pressure problem from your tank. Contact your Propane provider to have them check the pressure on their tank regulator.

Change from natural gas to propane


You could do it but it would be very expensive. You would need to change the ODS pilot and the gas valve itself. I am not sure even then it would work correctly. These are not conversion ready.
