I have a DESA propane vent free heater; model CBT30PT (4 yrs old). The heater was cleaned and worked fine until this year. The pilot lights and the heater functions for about 15 - 2o min. then the heater completely shuts down. It will restart and run for a while then shuts down again., Any suggestions?

Remove the small copper colores tubing going from the gas valve to the pilot assembly. Take it to a good hardware store that sells heaters and ask them for a new one.It is called a thermocouple.

Propane heater


I recently had a similar problem with my DESA wall-mounted vent-free natural gas heater. We had it repaired but the problem recurred annually until it wouldn't stay on, even on low. There is a part known as an oxygen depletion sensor (sometimes called a flame sensor) that is part of the pilot assembly. When it is working properly, it sends a very tiny current that lets the heater know to keep feeding gas. After a few years the sensor can get rusty, which interferes with its electrical job, causing it to tell the heater to shut off so it doesn't kill you. A temporary repair can be effected by removing the part and cleaning it with sandpaper or emery paper. I suppose compressed air might work too but probably not for long if it is impeded by rust and not just dust. I found all this out from the repairman who thought he had it fixed and then it went out as he was leaving. He couldn't find the part but I found it online at a DESA-authorized distributor and it was about $40. He installed it in about 10 minutes and it has now worked like new (it's at least 15 years old) for over a month.
