Re: lighting a glo warm heater

Is this a new heater or have you had it awhile? If new, yuo may have air in the line that will need to be bled out. The heater has a gas valve with a pilot setting on it. Make sure the gas is turned on. Turn the knob to the pilot setting and depress the handle. Holding it down and at the same time, press down on the red button that sparks. You may have to repeat this a few times. Once the pilot lights, continue to hold down on the pilot knob for about 30 seconds. When uou release the knob, the flame should stay o. If it does not, replace the thermocouple. Once the pilot flame is steady, turn the gas valve knob to on.

SOURCE: pilotlight will not light, getting spark, but no propane.

make sure you have the gas valve knob on turned to pilot while pressing that down while pushing the spark it should light or it is tripped on a safety like rollout switch or oxygen depletion sensor if equipped which all ventless heaters are

SOURCE: dyna glo tag along propane heater pilot stays on but when turning

sounds like either a bad thermocouple or more likely a pressure regulator problem. should have unit checked by someone familiar with propane systems.

SOURCE: My glo-warm propane heater keeps shutting off automatically-pilot and all.

Clean the pilot and if that does not help replace the thermocouple. Also make sure you have correct ventilation to the room as that can also cause this type of heater to shut down.

Sounds like a bad thermocouple. When they go bad, they won't open the gas valve when switched from pilot to on.

I have a 3000btu dnya glo unvented gas fied room

I'm not familiar with these heaters but I assume there is button or something you push to get the pilot to light. There will be air in the pipe between where the gas comes in and the pilot light. You have to give it enough time for the gas to push this air out of the line. Hope this helps.

May need to be cleaned. Get a can of air used for computers and blow out the burners and pilot. Re-light the pilot when complete.
