I have a propane heater that sits on the tank and has the ceramic plates for dissipating the heat. Instead of a nice blue flame, it has a lot of orange flame. Why?

I would shut off valve to heater and remove it from propane bottle. Carefully clean with soft bristle brush and blow out with medium pressure air. Reinstall and light heater and see if flame quality has improved. Often dirt,dust,and lint can build up in burner and cause fuel to not get good enough air to fully combust. Hope this helps you.Thanks

Propane blue flame heater. Why does it flare/pop when the flame shuts off.Lights well ,flame is nice and blue but when the thermostat shuts it off it pops.?


Its just a small explosion from the mixture of propane and the oxygen rite at the time it gets to the percentage of O2-ph. Its safe. An oxy/acetlene set up does the same thing when the mix is to high in O2.

My whirlpool water heater that i just installed is not heating up...it is for a mobil home...help


Are you on propane? and did you use a natural gas water heater for a replacement? If you did, it will not hardly have a flame.
You would need to install a propane water heater, which the info that you gave, that is about all I can come up with.
If you can give me some more info, I can help you.
Please rate the new guy :)
And get back to me with an answer to the above and also, what does the current flame look like? Nice blue flame, with 1/4" yellow tips? Total flame should be 3 to 5 inches tall.
Good Luck,
Paul Gibson

If you didn't use it for a while and stored it outside. Spiders like to build nests in the orfis and if it is clogged it will restrict the air and give you a flame instead hot heat.

Wall heater not working properly--sputtering blue flame


Ok, either your fuel pressure is too low or too high.. When you light the unit, Light it in low, then turn it up slowly Just crack open your tank valve.about1/4 turn. The air in the tubes has to be displaced with gas before you get a good flame

Lack of heat


The plates protect the burners and help disperse the flame more evenly across the grill surface. Make sure the tank is completely open (knob on top of tank) and that when the burner is turned up to high, the flames out of the burners are about 1 1/2 to 2" long, mostly blue in color. If they are smaller, and the tank is open all the way, the regulator hose may be defective.
