Question about Vanguard International Blue Flame - Medium Open Flame Patio Heater
I have a Vanguard natural gas blue flame heater and only the pilot is yellow, not the flame. I was told it was dirt. Can I take the tube off the pilot and air blast it to make it blue again?

All it needs is a good blow out with compressed air. They tend to carbon up in the pilot light area. You will probably also find it is very dusty inside. Easiest way to clean the carbon out is to remove the hose at the heater and with compressed air blow through the fitting where you have removed the hose. Make sure you hold down the start button so the air can get through to the pilot light and jets. Don't connect the electricity for the fan when you do this. If you can get to the top of the pilot light it may help to give that a blow out too.
To clean it out internally you only need to remove the front panelling. Just follow the screw configurations *** you go. I asm not familiar with that type of heater so thats about the best I can do. Regards Bryan
