Pull the gas manifold out from the bottom of the unit along with the gas valve. A couple screws and removal of the gas flex is all it should take
Sometimes the manifold gets build up of dirt and cause hard ignition due the the fact that the gas is not being pushed out of the manifold holes that is by the piolt assembly

Empire wall furnace pushing down the pilot button trying to light the pilot found too much gas flowing


Is the button on the gas valve or a red button in the line to the pilot assembly? If its in the line, there is a regulator upstream of the button. If the gas is coming from the gas valve, there is a small screw covered hole in line with the pilot line in the gas valve. If neither of these apply, you may need to replace the orifice in the pilot assembly. Let me know how it goes.

I've got a 23 yr old 30DV3 whose pilot light works, and the thermostat & heating element seem to work, but not well. With the thermostat set at full hot, it just barely throws out any heat at all. ...


As I'm sure you already know, Empire Comforts Systems, no longer makes that model heater and hasn't for some years, now. I mentioned that, because if your unit needs parts, they may be almost impossible to get. In any event, there are a several things that may be causing the problem.

  • Low Gas Pressure - Burner is not receiving enough gas. Check for obstructions and have gas pressure at the unit checked.
  • Clogged burner or air intake (venturi valve) is partially clogged. Clean burner ports and venturi valve.
  • Gas line Shut Off Valve at heater not fully open. Check Gas line Shut Off Valve.
At 23 years old, you've gotten your money's worth out of this unit and it may be time to replace it. Empire makes several Direct Vent Wall Furnaces that are rated as High Efficiency Furnaces. In the long run, the money saved in fuel cost, would be worth installing a new one.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

Adjust resonance screw makes loud noise on start up


I'm not sure what you mean "adjust resonance screw". I'm going to guess the adjustment screw your talking about is under at screw cover and is the appliance regulator screw. It adjust the gas input to your burners. Too low pressure is caused by backing the screw off and can result in delayed ignition or a "loud noise". It's really a small explosion caused by built up gas and damage your heater. Too high of pressure is caused by turning the screw in too far and can over-fire the heater which is also dangerous. I'm assuming you burn natural gas because with propane the appliance regulator is wide open. Your gas company may come and use a manometer to set the manifold pressure to factory settings (3.5 to 4.0 W.C.) for you. Otherwise, turn the screw back in until the ignition is not delayed and the loud noise is replaced by a nice quick ignition. Good luck.

Empire wall heater with wall vent pilot light


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!!

Is this unit originally set up for natural gas? If so, the burner oriface and the gas valve need to be retro-fitted to propane. This is something only a qualified service technician should attempt as an incorrect retro-fit could cause an explosion resulting in someone getting hurt or even killed.
