Question about All-Pro Heating & Cooling

Open Question

Wont ignite I bought this all pro propane heater used.. Well the thing won't ignite.. When you push in the gas button isn't the electric igniter supposed to be clicking? Also since this is my first one and its used.. I don't have an instruction manual.. when I press the gas button i can hear the gas coming thru the heater with a loud sshhh sound.. Is there another method to lighting it without blowing yourself up.. LOL Anything you can tell me on how to operate it would be great.. Possibly some instructions too if you can.. Thanks, James

The ticking noise is the ignigtor. If the gas tank is full, and the regulator is on, then try lighting with a match or fire of some sort. Be careful of the spark-er! If it lights, then the spark needs to be adjusted so it catches the gas better. If it doesn't lite, then the hole for the pilot is plugged. An outside heater is common for a spider or other creature to make this his home. You need to clean it out. Compressed air even another flame may do it. if not It needs to be removed and cleaned out. If you can see the little hole, trey poking a thin piece of wire into it, it may get it.

SOURCE: comfort glo propane ventless heater won't light

I have several of these heaters in my rent houses and love them. The most problem I have is not being able to ignite the pilot with the user control igniter. Remove the screws that hold the front cover in place along with the front cover. Hold the pilot control down and ignite with a lighter. Keep the pilot engaged until thermocouple is warm enough to keep pilot gas flowing. If it will light this way then you need to blow out the pilot orifice. It seems that every year I have to go in after the summer season when the heater is off and clean the pilot/orifice lines with high pressure air. I believe spiders/bugs/dust block pilot orifice when it is not in use. You can also tell that orifice is blocked when you don't get a good blue pilot flame with pressure behind it allowing the flame to submerse the thermocouple. If the the thermocouple is not getting enought heat it will turn pilot gas off for safety reasons.

SOURCE: 150,000 BTU propane Reddy Heater shuts off after ignition

Is there a frost line on your LP tank, if so you may need to replace the tank with a larger tank or refill your tank. This can happen if the tank your using is too low or too small (use 100 lb tank or greater). If there is no frost line it may be an issue with the thermocouple. The manufacturer offers a service manual and owner's manuals on there site. This should assist you... www.desatech.com Thank you

SOURCE: The Goodman Heater was installed in 2004.

Problem: Your furnace will not ignite the gas to produce heat for your home. When a furnace has a bad ignitor what I see most of the time is the following sequence of operation:


1. Thermostat calls for heat. 2. Draft inducer motor starts. 3. Pressure switch attached by a small plastic or rubber tube senses the negative pressure produced by the draft inducer and closes. 4. Draft inducer runs for 30 seconds to a minute before you hear a gas hissing sound. The ignitor did not glow, the flame sensor (a small metal probe about 1/8" in diameter, with a white porcelain base) does not sense the flame, so after 8 to 10 seconds the hissing sounds stops with no ignition of gas to heat your home. Your furnace shuts down and goes into a lock out condition until you turn your power switch back off and on again. Then the sequence starts all over again with no ignition of the gas. Solution:You probably need to purchase and install a new ignitor. I would suggest that you inspect your ignitor closely for cracks. Make sure you do not touch the ignitor with your bare hands. If you do not visually see a crack, then you could have a furnace control board problem or a limit, rollout switch problem. The furnace's control board might not be supplying the voltage to the ignitor. If your furnace lights and the gas stays on for 8 to 10 seconds, then shuts right back off, then you need to clean your flame sensor with light sand paper or steel wool. You might need a new flame sensor, but most of the time they can be cleaned an will work well after cleaning.

Have 85000 but all-pro propane heater. starts fine good flame, release the gas valve button, heater shuts down no gas


If you have a thermocouple and standing pilot as described the gas cannot flow full to the burners with the gas valve button depressed because the position of the gas valve to allow the button to be depressed is not in the 'on' position....its in the 'pilot' position.

Are you sure you cleaned the 'thermocouple' and not just a 'spark ignition electrode' ?? One with spark ignition will not have a gas valve that has a pilot position.... Kinda confusing and conflicting data to sort through ..... Hmmmm....

If you have the spark ignition style, the problem COULD be in the 'flame rectification' circuit. IF it has the ignition electrode, the other side of the furnace will contain the 'flame sensor' that senses the flame and completes the ground circuit of the electronic module through the flame. Its not doing it, so either it is oxidized up inhibiting its ability to conduct electricity through the flame or there is residual oxidation within some of the terminal connections of the ground circuit.

IF what you have is the 'standing pilot', the first suggestion is to replace the thermocouple. A more remote possibility is the gas valve has a defective safety coil that drops out when you release the pilot button.

My 40-FAC heater will not ignite and run. The igniter has been replaced. What should I check next?


These models require electrical power to run the blower fan.
When you connect the electrical cord, the fan should turn on, then you should be able to start / ignite the propane. if the fan does not turn on when you connect the power cord, you will not be able to ignite the propane.

Hayward H series propane pool heater, how do I convert to gas?.


I used to be able to get it through my supplier but the link is now dead and shows product not available. I am sure you can get this through Hayward direct. The last kit I bought was around $200 (my cost, not retail). As for a used kit, I seriously doubt that is an option.

My brand new 38 gallon GE water heater does not ignite. I follow the instructions, hold down button in pilot position, heater dial in pilot mode and push the piezoelectric button several times. I look...


Check that gas is turned ON. Gas handle is parallel same direction as gas line.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Gas-water-heater-89-valve-2.jpg
Make sure that type of gas matches water heater. Natural gas and propane gas are two different types of gas. check label on side of tank for type of gas NG or LP.

We believe we are to turn on the water electric button to start the heater. Directions say the light should go out when ignition occurs. It won't go out.


If your water heater has an electric element, as well as electronic ignition for gas operation, you may be getting them mixed up. One switch should show like a lightning bolt beside it,(that's for hydro use) the other will show a small gas flame beside it.(that's to turn on ignition for gas operation.)
If you only have one, my guess is it's for electronic ignition. When you turn that on, you should hear the water heater trying to ignite outside.("click,click,click) and then burner should ignite if you have your propane on. Get back to me with your model number of the heater, behind cover outside, and I can tell by that what you have as far as just gas, gas and electric, etc.
