Hello there :\
wow i didnt think i would see one of these heaters again i own 3 of them and they all had the same problem wat i did to fix this is to turn off he unit and take the 2 screws out of the side towards the bottom and remove the front panel now you can get to the pilot light areea i took a can of canned aitr and blew into the pilot area really good and blew out every thing really good then i took the line off that goes to the tiles and blew into them really well and that is it i lit it and it lit right off the bat like it should then i turned it up on high and they all lit up i put he front cover on and all worked well
also you have 2 gas controle valves on the right side on one of my units one was faulty so i replaced it so check them out too then you should have no problems after this ok
So please try this out I hope this is very helpful for you

I need to know just how much backsplash to buy for a kitchen wall it is 9 ft 7ins X 1FT 2INS and 3 FT 2 INS X 1 FT. and if I need 2 boxes how would I order it in 1 square feet?


Hi Connie

Did you get that roof fixed? ;>)

You have to round these figures out a bit, and you always needs a few extra tiles in case of breaks or bad cuts.

So your 9ft 7 ins X 1ft 2ins is 10 foot x 1.5 feet is 15 square feet, or 1.66 square yards.

Your 3ft 2 ins x 1 ft is 3 square feet or .33 square yards.

Add the 2 together 1.66 plus .33 and as near as makes no matter, you want 2 square yards. I just had a quick check and wall tiles are packed in Square FEET. You need 18 Square Feet.

If you are careful, one box like this will do as it 17 square feet.

https://www.rona.ca/en/ceramic-wall-tile-04775020--1

Description This cream-colored wall ceramic from Bravo has a glossy finish and is made for interior use. One box contains 136 3" x 6" tiles and covers 17 sq. ft.

Get yourself a notched trowel to put the adhesive on.

And a grouting squeegee to spread the grout.

And one of these to smooth the edge of the grout into the joints.

Another consideration is that some tiles are self spacing, but on others you need to use spacers to have a gap between them. Link in this article.

If you have to cut tiles, tile cutters are expensive, but the big box DIY stores will rent you one.

How do you know the temperature heater is running at when set on light orange 1st or 2nd square


The only way to tell is to use a thermometer as the outlet heat is based upon the surounding air temperature.

Low does not work, medium and high do


You probably cant fix it, this sounds like a multispeed blower with hi/medium/lo settings. You
can either replace the motor or connect one of the
working speeds to low/med or low/hi. or bump med to low and high to medium.

Empire corcho ventless propane wall heater 15000 btu


LOL.... your fuel is not boiling.... the closer propane gets to its vaporization point (-44%F) the less vapor it produces. clean the snow off of the 100# or lay it on its side to give it more surface area for vaporization.

go to a radio shack to find replacement knobs. get something called a "bar knob." this has a set screw which holds the knob on the thermo shaft. use a marker and print lo med high and off on the unit or use a brother p touch label maker.
