Question about All-Pro SPC-85 Utility Heater

All-Pro SPC-85 Utility Heater

Hello,
After lending my heater to a "friend", I now have to hold the igniter button on to keep the flame lit. Is this repairable or do I need replacement parts.
If so, do you sell them, or can you tell me where I can obtain them?
Thanks much

    I have the same problem as Grogs with my heater. Can the thermocouple be replaced with an after market product?

  • Anonymous Mar 27, 2008

    The problem with going to a hardware store is finding a thermocouple that has the two spade connectors used to inform the logic board that heat is present. All I'm finding are standard water heater thermocouples w/o the spades.

    yes, I have the same prolem. Is it the thermocoupler that is not keeping the gas valve open and is that a replaceable part.

Check the thermocouple, it is a very small diameter copper wire that goes from the gas valve to the burner. Make sure it is being hit by the flame. If it is, remove it and go to a good hardware store with it and get a new one.

Heater wont stay lit when i let go of primer button after a few seconds


try holding down the button for 15 to 20 seconds and then let go ( this will let the system heat up to the proper temp ),, if it still will not stay lit then the thermal coupling is bad and needs to be replaced.

Unit will not stay lit unless the bottom is held down manually.


This indicates you have a bad thermocouple. It's the copper probe that goes down to the flame. You may be able to pick up one at a good hardware store such as Ace.
