Question about Ace Hardware ML250TPA Infra-Red Wall Mounted Panel Heater

1 Answer

Heater doesnt stay on when the temp gets colder

It seems that when the temp outside drops below 35 deg, the heater wont stay on. Also the pilot constantly flickers and will eventually go out.
Is this a tank problem or the outside regulator?
I have blown air through the pilot vent and that didnt work.
please help, its cold :(

Ventless heaters such as these have an oxygen depletion sensor that monitors O2 levels at the burner and shuts the unit off if it drops below a certain percentage (assuming that there will be carbon monoxide production). Check your owner's manual for any requirements such as a window or door needing to be open while this heater is in use.
There also is the possibility that there is water in the regulator of your propane line (if it is outside) that freezes and inhibits the regualtor's function.

PILOT FOR EMPIRE WALL HEATER WONT STAY LIT. I HAVE ALREADY REPLACED THE THERMOCOUPLE


are you sure the problem is with the thermocouple? is the pilot sharp and blue? it is unconnon for the magnet in a gas valve to go bad but it does happen. place the thermocouple in the valve and with it in front of you heat it with a match or lighter for 30 sec. now try and light the pilot quickly. if it lights the the problem would be the pilot, if not then the valve. is this a milivolt system or hydrolic t stat.

Lasko 5141 - I set the temp to hold @ 68 degrees at night but it seems to ignore the setting and gets into the high 70's. This is with the rotation switch on if that makes a difference. Any Help ? Thanks


Remember it is always colder at the floor level, the heater is pretty close to temp when it is above 40 degrees outside, but as the temperature gets colder outside so does the temperature at the floor level in your house because heat rises.

I use my house furnace thermostat mounted half way up the wall as a guide, When the temp outside is in the teens, I have seen as much difference between the floor temp on the heater and the wall to be 4-6 degrees different. So this means as the tempurature outside drops you need to regulate the thermostat on the heater downward to compensate for the colder floor temperatures.

Pilot light won't light on ventless fireplace


Ventless Gas logs, Vanguard, VS30PR. Propane gas
Pilot light stays lit various times, sometimes for several days then other times for a few minutes. Lights best when temp outside is below freezing. Pilot flame appears to receive too much air. How do you adjust the pilot flame? Is this done using two screws marked A & E? Do you have suggestions?
Thanks,
Ed

The Thermostat Wizard is an interactive tool that will guide you through wiring and troubleshooting your thermostat, as well as programming it to the most comfortable settings for you and your family.

However - the problem is probably not with your thermostat but with your furnace. It is most likely a dirty flame sensor - a maintenance issue. If you have not had your furnace serviced recently (more than 1 year) that is where you should start. Modern furnaces require regular maintenance.

Loss of temperature control


Is the heater staying on all the time? Most likely cause of themostat trouble is the sensor. Try to find it and measure its resistance at different temps to verify the trouble.
