All Pro SPC85

Must hold or "prop" closed the on plunger to operate. (not advised to do this)

The entire plunger assembly can be pulled from the heater. I think something has fallen off.

Pump not pumping

Just repaired a 60 and a 115. Neither was pumping air to fuel nozzle. Both rotor assemblies were bad. Pull off the filter assembly and then take off the plate on the back of the motor. You will probably find that the rotor is in several pieces.

No problems, would like to find out the best way to remove blower for cleaning on an intertherm gas furnace mgh 075 ina mobile home

Generally ther is two screws at the base of the blower housing which hold it in place, remove the screws and pull, slide the entire assembly out. You will have to disconnect the electrical wiring to the blower and possibly the limit switch on the side if equip.

I have a 25000 btu Empire and I can not get the pilot light to stay lit. Any thoughts

The pilot safety is bad. It is also called a thermocouple. If you look at the pilot through the viewing port you will see a copper probe that will work its way to the gas valve. This is the thermocouple. To remove it, remove the 10 or so screws holding the burner box to the bottom of the combustion chamber, remove the screw holding the pilot assembly to the burner and slowly wiggle out the entire pilot assembly. Unscrew the copper probe from the gas valve than turn it out of the pilot assembly Take it to a good hardware store and match up the length. You may have to purchase a longer one but you can coil up any extra. Reverse the removal procedure to install and make sure you seal up the burner box with high temp silicon prior to lighting.

I 50,000-85,000 All Pro Propane heater release red button fireout

If the red button has to be held down for a period of time to get the heater going it overrides the shutoff mechanism. If you are holding it the prescibed amount of time then either the hydraulic system which keeps your unit running is bad or out of place or the metering valve is bad. Check for a copper line with a bulb on the end. It should probably be in the fire created by the heater, if not bend it to be in the heat or very close. If this is ok then you may need to get a new burner for the unit which would probably mean buying an entire new unit as the cost would probably exceed the cost of a new unit. Let me know how you make out.

How do I unscrew the pilot light and the coupler to check for blockage? I can barely get my hands in the panel, and there is no room to wrench it off!? My problem is that the pilot goes out after I hold...

Welcome to my world. Look for a screw holding the pilot assembly to the burner. You may need a long screw driver or extension socket. Disconnect the pilot tube and thermocouple from the gas valve using a 3/8" and 7/16" wrench. Pull out the entire assembly and work on it. Be careful, there is a small orifice that is easily lost once you unscrew the pilot tube from the pilot assembly.

How do i change the wick?

You need a pair of Pliers, a flat-tip screwdriver and a plastic bag (for old wick)
ALSO - make sure the tank is empty (or as close as possible)
1. Turn the control knob to OFF.
2. On the left and right side (bottom, just under the wire cage are two cabinet screws. Remove these.
3. Using the handle, lift straight up to remove the cabinet (entire upper assembly)
4. Gently pull off the wick adjustment knob (you will need to push in the little square button.
5. Remove the "dressing plate" (the ring about 3" high) that the "Off" "Low" and "High" markings. The chain attaches this the fuel cap, but you don't have to remove the cap. Just set the "dress plate" ring aside as far as the chain lets you.
6. Either trip the manual shut-off or push against the wobbly pendulum to the left of the control knob shaft to drop the wick all the way down.
7. Remove the four wing nuts that holds the heater on the wick assembly and carefilly lift teh sick assembly from the heater.
8. Reset the automatic shut-off, put the know back on temporarily and raise the wick all the way.
9. Turn the Wick Assembly upside down. Place the white plastic strip, packed with the new Wick, on the Wick Cover to protect your fingers.
10. While holding the Wick Assembly upside down, pull off the Wick Cover with a sharp tug.
11. Remove the Wick while folding it to the inside. (Remove the Wick Sleeve together with the Wick).
12. Take the new wick and insert the Wick pins into the three holes of the Wick Sleeve. (Make sure the short portion of the Wick is UP.)
13. Attach the Wick wo the retainer teeth of the Wick Sleeve stick into it, making sure the Wick fits evenly arount the inside with no wrinkles or bunching.
14. Fit the Wick and Wick Sleeve back onto the Wick Guide, making sure you fit the pins through the slanted grooves of the Wick Guide and Press on each of the three pins from the back, making sure they are inserted securely through the holes on the Wick Guide. (This is where most people screw up Wick Replacement, so make sure you get this right)
15. Turn the Wick Adjustment Knob to make sure the Wick slides up and down freely. (Note, the wick should automatically be set to 3/8 of an inch when fully raised.)
16. Turn the Wick Assembly upside down and replace the Wick Cover by: Align the four tabs on teh Wick Cover with the four screw holes on the bottom of teh assembly and snap it into place.
17. Hold the Set Lever to down position with your finger.
18. Remove the protective strips from the Wick Cover. Turn the Wick Adjustment Knob to the fully raised position and light pull on the "skirt" of the Wick to remove any slack. Then press the skirt lightly onto the teeth on the Wick Cover to hold it in place.
19. Replace the Wick Assembly on the heater WITH THE WICK RAISED. Replace the wing nuts, tightening gradually, tightening opposites sides first(If counting clockwise, tighten screw 1, 3, 4, 2 - go through several rounds, tightening gradually so it seats evenly
20. Before further reassembly, trip the Auto shut-off and reset it to make sure it works properly. Test the Wick adjustment knob to make sure Wick slides up AND down freely.
21. Remove the knob and replace the "dressing plate ring.
22. Replace the entire upper assembly "Heater Cabinet" and repalce the two screws. Replace the Wick Adjustment Knob.
