Sounds like the thermocouple is not working or the flame is not hitting the thermocouple. It may take 30 seconds of flame or longer to keep it on. Check for a loose connection at the gas valve.

Either a 30# or 110# tank of propane will work. You might even get by for a short period of time using a gas grill tank, depending upon how cold it is outside.

What you are experiencing is common if the plaques are either out of alignment or the burner is dirty. I know you said you cleaned it with low pressure air, but you need at least 120 PS. of air to clean the burner and plaques as per the owners manual.

SOURCE: B vent configuration of direct vent propane heaters

Yes, the design of the combustion chamber is limited at how much fresh air and combustion air can enter it. If you lengthen the venting, you will be causing more restriction and there will not be enough natural air movement to make it work. It will start, run for a minute or two and poof out. Not to mention you will be circumventing it's UL rating and if you sell your home with it installed, you are liable for any fatality or damage. Do you want to risk that? Don't even think of doing it! There are "Box" heaters out there sized from about 5,000 Btu's on up to 100,000 Btu's. Check the web.

SOURCE: i have reddy pro 100 lp gas heater when i run it

are you using it in a closed room? you should be using it where there is air circulation. what's happening is the heater is using up oxygen and is producing carbon monoxide which is poisonous and if you are not careful IT WILL KILL YOU!

It sounds like the gas valve is dropping out. Make sure the system is venting the exhaust(no restrictions). Then make sure all your wiring connections in the unit are tight. In a millivolt system if all wiring connections aren't tight and clean your circuit will drop in millivolts and the gas valve will drop out. The gas valve requires a certain millivolt to stay open. I hope I was of some assistance!! Good luck!!

I brougt glowarm space heater model HDB30PT for propane gas but I needed a natural gas space heater.Can I covert it to natural gas and how can do it for me


I'm sorry to report there is no gas conversion for your DESA heater. In fact, no vent-free (vent-less) gas heating appliance (that includes gas log sets) is approved to be converted from one gas type to another. If you bought it from a retail store, exchange it for a LP Gas Model or a refund.

Hope this answered your question and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Have a NG unit need to convert to LP gas. wath can i do.????


Unfortunately, there is absolutely nothing you can safely do to convert it from Natural Gas to LPG.
Each unit is manufacutered and tested for the specific gas type. Attempting to change it, puts all the liability on you, if something should go wrong. There are some on this site that will tell you all you have to do, is change the pilot orifice. That's fine for a Vented heating appliance, but not a Vent-free Heater like yours. In your case, you'd need a new control valve assembly, pilot assembly, burner, etc. That alone is about the cost of a new LPG Vent-free Heater. Besides, DESA Interantional has been out of business for 3 or 4 years now. So, parts would be an issue.

Sell the heater to someone who has Natural Gas and use the proceeds toward a new LPG Vent-free Heater. Always remember and don't every forget, it's always safety first when it comes to gas appliances.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a wall mount vent free heater and a 10 gal propane tank how do hook it up so it will work


First off, Dave, the tank cannot be inside the house, motor home, camper, garage, etc. By the way, I believe your 10 gallon tank, is what's called a 40LB cylinder. Anyway, 10 gallons is not going to last very long, if the heater you plan to install is 20,000 Btu output or higher. If it's going in a bedroom, the maximum Btu output can not exceed 10,000 Btu's.

To install one, you'll need 1/2" flexible copper gas piping. An in-line LP Gas regulator, that has the capacity to carry whatever the maximum Btu output of you heater is. In addition, you will need a 1/2 NPT to 3/8" Flare nipple to go into the back of the heater. Assorted Flare Nuts in assorted sizes for the gas line connections.

Tools needed: Flaring tool, 2 adjustable wrenches, Phillips Head Screw Driver & Leak Detector Solution. To make sure it's done correctly, a Mechanical/Plumbing Permit from you city or county's Building Inspection Department. And last, but not least, a friend that has a lot of knowledge in the installation of Vent-free Supplemental Gas Heating Appliances.

If installed properly, these appliances are very safe. If installed improperly, they can be very dangerous.

I bought a comfort glow vent-less space heater model # CJ18NL. It had a natural gas valve on it and the guy said I could put on a propane valve, which I did. It's not lighting. Is this model only good...


According to the Comfort Glow Website, this is a Natural Gas unit. If you use propane you will need
a minumum 100# LP Cylinder and a pressure regulator. I have a Comfort Glow unit and went through the same process.

If you have it hooked up to a 30lb cylinder without a regulator I would think that if you purged the gas line
of air you should be able to light the pilot.

On a new unit you can expect to push the spark ignitor button at least a dozen times while holding
down the gas valve button.

Good Luck

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?

Have a dayton hanging garage heater when trys to start acts like gas valve not opening heaters brand new.what should i look for


I have never seen a dayton gas heater but I will try. If this is an LP Gas
System are you using a 30lb. Cylinder, 100 lb cylinder or a whole house
Tank.

Next are you sure you got the right gas unit for the right gas system?
If using LP gas did you put an external pressure regulator before the unit?

Next is the a hot surface glow coil or a spark system ignition system?
If you have to hold the controller down and press a button similar to a outdoor gas grille is it sparking?

If it is sparking,did you bleed all of the air out? This could take several
tries on a new unit. Does this have a wall mounted thermostat that
controls the heater? Finally check to make sure that the gas valve
is switched on if it has that option.

Good Luck

I have a direct vent wall heater that I switched from a larger lp tank to a double 100 lb cylander tank, now the pilot will light but when I turn the thermostat up the heater won't start.


If you can jump out the thermostat connections on the gas valve and the heater still does not turn on, check to make sure the thermopile is well into the pilot and getting hot. If it is, replace it. That is the safety for the main burner.It will have two wires wrapped with metal and note which terminals it is connected to on the gas valve.

Pilot lights but when ignition pops back up the flame goes out


will either be the unitrol control box or the thermocouple, when you push down you are holding two magnets together and waiting for a small charge to be created from the probe in the flame , if this is not working you have no charge and the magnets won;t stick to allow the valve to open, change the thermo and see if that works first, its way cheaper than a new controler
