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.

Have electtric forced air 40.ooo, btu unit. have 10 psi regulator. am useing tank hookup from grill.wont stay lit.


I hope & pray, that the grill tank is not indoors with the heater. In any event, if you're using a grill regulator too, it's not going to provide the 11 to 13 water column inches of pressure that is required for 40,000 BTU's. That's why the heater wont stay lit. Nor, is it going to burn very long, as that grill tank only holds 2 gallons of gas

This is a gas appliance that is safe when installed and operated properly. Don't try to jury rig something that could come back to bite you in the end. Injuring or killing you and your family.

HAD A similiar problem last week with a customer who had just installed a pool and running off of propane tank for gouse as well... he let tank go empty and started having problems ..what we ended up finding is that not only was his regulator on tank bad he needed a additional regulator to regulate the different psi pressure to the appliances... get them to check your regulator out

make sure your thermocouple is located in the direct path of the pilot flame. if not the thermocouple will not heat up enough to send the low voltage signal to the gas valve.

I have purchased a Procom ventless heater (ML250TPA) and need to know if I have to put a low pressurer reg. on the system outside or will this model heater reduce the propane pressurer coming from my 500...


This heater is designed to work with LP gas. You will need a regulator from the tank to the heater set at 11"wc .that's standard for any LP gas system. Your existing piping system should have a regulator already outside of your house before the gas inters your home .If it does not then you will have to install one. The regulator can be inside but you will have to run a vent line in copper from the regulators vent to the outside of your house.

Hope this helps ......

Ventless gas wall heater. Pilot lights but wont stay lit.


The thermocouple may be worn out.
The thermocouple may have come loose from the valve.
The ODS pilot may be clogged with dust or lint and may need to be cleaned with air(less than 30psi)
The valve or regulator may be faulty.

Pilot light will stay lit Lennox G8D2-82


You may need to replace the Thermocoupler. It screws into the gas regulator and the sensor end is set in the flame of the pilot light. You can get one at any appliance parts store. The Thermocoupler simply feels the heat of the pilot light and sends a very small amount of voltage to the gas switch that opens when your thermostat calls for heat. If the pilot light isnt lit, no voltage from the sensor and no gas can be released by the regulator.
Anyone can replace one. Just find the tip that sits in the the pilot flame when you try to ignite the pilot light. Follow it down to the regulator and unscrew it. There is no gas involved. It is Ultra Low Voltage. No danger.
Be sure to turn off the power to the unit before you begin removal. Take it to the parts store along with your furnace brand and model number. If you see any identifiers on the regulator, note them and take them with. When you replace it be sure to have the sensor end up in the flame of the pilot.

I'm trying to convert a Jandy 250 BTU propaine pool heater to natural gas and I need the parts


go to the pool store or supply house or call the manufacture if anyone there speaks good english. and tell them what you got and that you need the propane orfices and the propane gas valve and regulator for your pool heater. you'll need to change the orfices, gas valve and regulator.

Can't get propane heater to lite


Not enough information to solve the problem correctly but I'll take a guess at it......

This heater requires a 100lb propane tank (approx. 25gal) with 1/2" or larger piping to deliver the correct volume of gas to the heater. If you are using a smaller tank (like a 10gal) or the piping is not the correct size you will not get enough gas to the heater to light the pilot. Also you should have a regulator set at 11" to 14" of water column installed between the tank and the heater. If the tank is connected directly to the heater you may have damaged the internal regulator in the heater.

Pilot will stay lit but will go out when unit is turned to low


is the pressure regulator right for the type of gas your using...? i had the same problem.i found out that my regulator was for both lp and nat.gas.i also found out there is a small nylon pin underneath the brass cap on top of the regulator.i unscrewed the cap and the fitting was set for lp.and i was using nat. gas.i just pulled the nylon pin out,flipped it around and replaced the cap...works fine now.if your regulator is like mine the nylon pin is maked LP on one end and NAT. on the other.might be worth a try

Medallion Vermont Casting model CF9080


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.
