Question about Montgomery Ward (223600UP) Heater
I have a floor heater, that is pretty old, maybe 50 years or so. I can't read the Model Number. The pilot stay lit, but when I adjust the thermostat for heat, nothing happens. The burner doesn't click on. It did work the last time it was cold, about six months ago. The gas company says it may be the blower. Most of the unit is under the house, it is a pretty deep unit.
Thanks for your help.
I have same in old house I live on the last 43 yrs. I replace the thermocouple this part when gets hot makes gas open,bought it in heating and air condition parts here in los angeles, calif cost me about $25 and very easy to replace. You have to crawl under luckily I have plenty space. good luck.

These old units have a simple gas valve and a separate regulator. Your best bet may be to replace the gas valve to something more modern. Trouble shooting this most likely be a waste of time, as parts probably aren't available, other than the thermostat. by-pass it, (connect the 2 wires together) and see if it comes on. The blower shouldn't stop the burner to come on. Sounds like the gas company doesn't want to crawl under there to light it.
