Re: floor furnace

That is the control for the main gas valve. These old ones have a gas valve separate from the pilot. Also the regulator is separate unit. You have to turn these controls with a long rod, right?

Ward Floor Heater, Model 570 EDR, works but is outputting much less heat than normal. Any information about where to look, parts I might need, etc would be greatly appreciated.

"The valve stem labeled Hot at 12 oclock and Off at 3 oclock,"
Is probably the problem. I'd try wd-40 overnight to see if it would free up the valve. It worked on a similar problem outside gas grill valve.

We have an old furnace. Model # em50743b Serial #55673 45k - 65k BTU Piloit stays lite. Very low flame when furnace kicks on...then humming noise begans and gets louder. Now will not come back on.


That sounds like your gas valve went bad...

If it is very old you may have a very hard time finding a replacement for it...
depending on the configuration of the gas train you may be able to update to a newr valve but then maybe not...

You may have to get a new furnace...

How do i light the pilot on a ward floor furnace madel 570 edr

You need a very kong wire and a kitchen match. Turn the knob on top to pilot and push down have your flame already down thru the pilot hole at the bottom of the inside of furnace. Hold for a few seconds and release knob trun to heat. This unit works on a power pile systm and generates milivolts from the flame. Rus

Floor heater won't light

At the gas valve on the furnace, jump the two connections where the thermostat wires attach to, I think TH and TP may be marked on terminals. If it lights, you have bad wire(s) going to thermostat. If it still refuses to light, you may be looking at a new gas valve.

Wall furnace model # SFB50146B Thermal Coupler. Does it have 2 wires?

if the pilot light stays lit, but the burners don't kick on, it's a problem with the thermostat or thermostat wiring, or a problem with the valve inside the gas actuator

Ward Heater Company M0021

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.
