If you can jump out the thermostat connections on the gas valve and the heater still does not turn on, check to make sure the thermopile is well into the pilot and getting hot. If it is, replace it. That is the safety for the main burner.It will have two wires wrapped with metal and note which terminals it is connected to on the gas valve.

I have a GloWarm propane/lp gas space heater. Can I use bottled propane tanks?


no you can't, and aren't you worried about carbon monoxide poisoning? Where does the burnt air go?

GloWarm Heaters - ventfree infrared heaters
GloWarm Infrared heaters are residential gas space heaters that are ventfree,
so no venting is required

GloWarm Plaque Infrared heaters direct heat from radiant plaques that
"warm like the sun."

Infrared heaters heat objects in the room before the air,
making them ideal for un-insulated rooms in your home.

All propane heaters require a 100 lb. tank or larger!

Gas conversion lp kit 8927 has 2 pilot orifices...I only need 1, correct?


The smallest pilot orifice is used for LP. Make sure you read the instructions thoroughly. Usually the gas valve pressure regulator is disabled and the burner orifices are also changed. Good luck and hope this helps.

Too much gas pressure. Are you sure that this is a LP heater and not a Natural gas heater? Is the regulator you have rated under 1/2 pound pressure? Try to throttle down the shutoff on the tank to see if pilot gets better. If so, you have a pressure issue. Gas you adjust the pilot gas valve?

Empire wall heater with wall vent pilot light


It sounds like the gas valve is dropping out. Make sure the system is venting the exhaust(no restrictions). Then make sure all your wiring connections in the unit are tight. In a millivolt system if all wiring connections aren't tight and clean your circuit will drop in millivolts and the gas valve will drop out. The gas valve requires a certain millivolt to stay open. I hope I was of some assistance!! Good luck!!

In reading about ventless propane heaters a month ago or so, most require a 100 pound or larger propane tank so there will be enough pressure. Could that be the problem?
