Hello GAVIN Change the the thermocouple anyway if you already did'nt.Check the pilot flame itself it should be stronger than a lighter.It can be turned up/down @ the gas valve.Lastly & very rare I have heard of a sticking gas meter @low pressures in standby mode starving the pilot out.Also when the main burners shut down it should be smooth with out any (snap) blowing it out.

Tip

Vent free heater tune up


An ODS space heater is a nice way to keep warm on the nastiest winter nights. It does not require power either so when the lights go out the ODS space heater keeps on truckin. This vent -free system is used on most fireplaces and space heaters today. A heater/fireplace using the vent-free system sits idle in summer months and dust gets a chance to accumulate in the pilot safety. After lighting the pilot and starting the heater all will be fine for a few minutes then the pilot goes out and heat fades away. The thermocouple for these is a superior grade one that is much costlier to buy than an ordinary t-couple. Lots of folks buy a new thermocouple only to realize that didn't fix the prob. Well I have the solution. I took some photos:


Each year just before the cold season you should at least vacuum the grates for flame unity and blow the cobwebs out the pilot to avoid having problems. Hope this helps someone.
A nice video from Micheal Holigan which explains how it works.

Pilot lights but won't stay on in my older style vulcan space heater. thermo couple was replaced last year.any ideas that i could try thanks


Most common cause of pilot light problems is air movement. If your space heater exhausts gas through the roof, ensure the cap is on and level. If not, outside air movement will blow out the pilot. If you do not have an exhaust gas duct, check that the unit is positioned so that it does not blow air back onto itself from walls, furniture, etc, and ensure no other devices that move air are aimed towards the unit. The unit also needs to be placed away from central ducting, including return vents.

Hope this helps!

Have a vent free lp wall mounted heater.40 lp tank with regulater. pilot light will light but only the tip of pilot light is flame.there is a space between pilot light and tube where lp comes out. does not...


Too much gas pressure. Are you sure that this is a LP heater and not a Natural gas heater? Is the regulator you have rated under 1/2 pound pressure? Try to throttle down the shutoff on the tank to see if pilot gets better. If so, you have a pressure issue. Gas you adjust the pilot gas valve?

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

Pilot won't light


You may have to bleed some more air out of the system.

Your ODS pilot may be clogged with dust or lint and needs to be blown out with air(less than 30 psi).

Your regulator or gas valve may be faulty.

Have Model CGP30TB Copmfort Glow propane heater. Pilot light won't stay lit. Flames also coming from what seem to be air vents just below flame on pilot light.


sounds like an obstruction in pilot assembly.try using canned compressed air to blow directly into pilot. this technique is successful about 70%. if not,pilot assembly must be removed and cleaned thorougly
