Question about Heaters

1 Answer

Medallion Vermont Casting model CF9080

The burners on my grill do not come to full strength. I replaced the gas tank with a newly filled tank. Since I was having pressure issues, I had the attendant purge air from the tank while he filled it. With 3 of 5 burners lite the flames struggled to stay lite. The temperature stopped at 250 degree after 30 minutes. When I light the side burner it pulls gas from the other burners to a point where they almost extinguish themselves. I can't see an clogged lines. The outside temperature is 40 degrees. Could the regulator be an issue? What else should I do? Thanks, Harcourt

Sounds like the regulator. there isn't much of anything left to go wrong! the gas comes out of a very small orifice in the burner tube and mixes with atmospheric air before being burned at the jet.

I cannot get the pilot light to stay lit. I disconnected the burner orifice and to see if the gas was getting through as it seems as if it is.


Several things can cause the problem you're having.

1. Low gas pressure due to a near empty tank or the heaters regulator is locked up and only
allows a small amount of gas to get the pilot. To solve this, turn the gas tank valve OFF & dis-
connect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes & reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the gas
valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the pilot
and hold the gas control valve in for 30 seconds to 60 seconds. After that time, release the control
valve knob. Did the pilot stay lit? If so, problem solved. If it didn't you will need to replace the
heater's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can use the same one that's for a gas grill. And find it at
any hardware store or home center that sells grills and accessories for about $30.00.

2. The pilot is dirty and needs to be cleaned. Use a can of compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with) to blow out the pilot tip.

3. The thermocouple has failed and needs to be replaced. If this is the case, you can order a new thermocouple for Blue Rhino (1.800.762.1142) , the manufacturer of your Patio Heater.

I have not used my endless summer patio heater since last fall. I bought a new tank of propaned, cleaned out the cobwebs checked all connections and tried to light up the heater. It does not work. I can...


Mike, the problem started when you turned the new tank ON. But, it is correctable most of the time.

Turn the LP tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the gas valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the tank valve is fully open, light the pilot and hold the gas control valve in for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Release the control valve and turn it to the ON position. Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Just remember to always turn the tank valve on Very, Very Slowly.

If the above didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the heater's Hose/Regulator Assembly. A gas Grill's Hose Regulator Assembly should work and you can purchase one from any hardware store of home center that sells grills & accessories for about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have an endless summer 92000 table top propane heater. Lights fine, but the flame does not burn at the edge of the burner. Instead, it only burns in the very center of the burner... much like a Bunsen...


Actually, it's a gas pressure issue. But, it's fairly easy to solve. First, you need to be sure that your LP Tank has a sufficient amount of gas. If it does, turn the propane tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Then reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner as you normally do and turn the burner flames to HIGH. Has the burner flame returned to normal? If so, you solved the problem. Just remember to always turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly.

If it didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the heater's hose/regulator assembly. Generally, i's the same type that a gas grill uses. So, it won't be hard to find one.

Hope this helped to troubleshoot and solve your problem. Please let me know.

Help, Im trying to start my parents Vermont casting stove, with a remote. But When I get the pilot lit it wont" stat lit. No matter how long Im holding it. My father is coming home from hospital...


You need to look at the thermocouple, this senses heat and lets the gas valve stay on. Some manufacturers call it a flame generator none the less it is what keeps the gas valve on. Some times you get lucky by cleaning it with steel wool and position it directly over the flame tip where it is hottest. this usually will take care of the pilot problem. Good luck and hope dad is fine.

Lack of heat


The plates protect the burners and help disperse the flame more evenly across the grill surface. Make sure the tank is completely open (knob on top of tank) and that when the burner is turned up to high, the flames out of the burners are about 1 1/2 to 2" long, mostly blue in color. If they are smaller, and the tank is open all the way, the regulator hose may be defective.

Regulator


If this heater is hooked up to a propane tank with an "OPD" valve, with the heater on; turn the gas off at the bottle. Allow it to set 30 seconds or so. Now turn off the heater. Slowly and I mean SLOWLY, turn on the tank. Now light the heater.
