Question about Heaters
The glo warm heater keeps shutting itself off My Glo-Warm heater goes out without warning on "low", and I can't run it at all on the "med" or "high" setting. It just goes out...If it were the oxygen depletion sensor, it wouldn't re-light immediately... but mine will. The when the heater is running, the pilot flame looks like it blows away from the pilot orfice-sounds like wind blowing in a microphone and then blows itself out-which turns off the gas to the burner. The pilot will stay lit if I don't turn the heater up-and with no noise. I have a natural gas model with no pressure regulator between the city gas and the heater (but installation instructions don't call for a regulator on natural gas either). My furnace and water heater operate just fine on the city gas without a regulator. Can I adjust the pilot flame to keep it from blowing out?
I,d suggest that you have either a case seal Damaged, allowing air into the casing.
Also possible fault may lie within the Flue air pressure Valve/Switch If applicable.
The heater/Boiler will have certain conditions to meet.
The Fan/flue switch ( Pressure switch. Will be designed to speed up the fan, before firing the main Burner.
As for the Noises, i,d suggest that the boiler is whats commonly known or reffered to As Kettling. Which usually indicates Overheating. This would cause the main-burner to distinguish as a fail safe.
Recommendations:- De-scale the heater, with a commercial descaler. Thoroughly flush the System. Then re-fill with required Amount Of Commisioning Fluid. i.e Fernox Or Sentinel et,c.
Also get the Fan/flue checked out for correct running speeds.

The regulator IS not only the issue, but it's a major safety benefit,..the pilot flame is non adunstable..get a cheap regulator(like the ones for the outdoor bbq's)
