Question about Stoves Monessen Variable Thermostat Controlled Forced Air Blower Heater

1 Answer

I have a monessen vent-free DIS33N fireplace. The pilot flame bends upwards and will not light with the piezo ignitor. Once lit with a match the unit stays on and operates. How do I adjust, correct, or clean the pilot?

I have a pro com 30000 btu vent free heater.it keeps shutting off.how do I fix it.


If the thermocouple is bad, the pilot light will not stay lit. Sometimes the pilot will stay lit but when the unit turns on the gas for heat, things change a bit and the nearly bad thermocouple doesn't see the flame it should and causes the gas to shut off.
You can google the make / model of your unit with the word 'thermocouple' and see replacements for sale. Usually not much more than $25. Thermocouple Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Mmonessen MODEL DIS33N PILOT WILL NOT STAY LITE


Is the flame [when lit] in contact with the thermocouple? Does the flame hit the thermal couple and climb it? How long do you attempt to heat it up before allowing it to run on its own?

If the flame is correct placement, color, and contact with the thermocouple and you've attempted to light it and had it running manually for 30 secs or more ... you may need a new thermocouple and/or pilot assembly. If unsure, have a certified technician come out and examine it for you.

Contact the Monessen site below and they might be able to help you or get you in touch with a dealer in your area to fix the issue. I know there was a recall on the Monessen remote systems a while back and your system might be part of that recall. Get with Monessen directly to find out.

Pilot light wont stay lit on gas logs


If the pilot lite comes on, but will not stay on after it has had enough time to heat the thermocouple, you got a bad or the wrong thermocouple. It does take some time to heat that thermocouple.

Lighting pilot light on kitchenaid dryer


It is all automatic, when you press start the power is sent to the gas assembly (if the timer is set for heat). The power originates from the cord to the timer to the temp control (on the blower housing) to the fuse next to the control, and to the gas assembly. The solenoids ignitor and flame sensor are all energized at once. The solenoids cannot release the gas unless the ignitor drops out of the circuit. That is the job of the flame sensor. Once the sensors bi-metal bends and opens the circuit, no more power goes to the ignitor< hoever, once the ignitor is glowing it generats a signal and becomes a thermogenerator with holds open the solenoid (holding coil) If for some reason the gas did not ignite the glow coil will cool off and shut down the solenoid. So what can go wrong? Lint buildup in the blower housing cause the fuse to melt. No power can be sent to the gas assembly. The flame sensor is open and not allowing power to the ignitor, the ignitor is open and not glowing. Old timey dryers had a pilot light. You hold down on the red lever and light the flame. Then release the lever and the pilot stays lit. I doubt if yours has a standing pilot. How modern gas dryer work:

The pilot won't stay lit on gas hot water tank.


Make sure thermocouple tip is seated inside the burner flame.
Make sure thermocouple is not overtightened. Finger-tight + 1/4 turn.
If the pilot lights, then ECO energy cut off is not tripped, but gas control valve might be bad.
Check color of pilot flame: it should be strong and clear blue.
If pilot flame is weak, or color of flame is yellow-orange: Clean pilot orifice and burner and combustion parts on yearly basis.
Clean air intake screen if applicable.
Increase air supply to water heater. Open a window and see what happens.
Check for adequate draft going up chimney using match under vent hood to see if smoke drafts immediately upwards.
Bleed air out of gas line.
Check gas pressure.

Fireplace will start but shuts off in about 30 seconds


Here's a few things to look for. After you light the pilot and turn on the burner, look at the pilot flame. Is it still a strong blue flame and it is still heating the thermocouple? If the pilot flame is a lazy yellow, it may not be able to keep a good enough flame on the thermocouple to keep it hot. The solution? Turn it all off and let it cool down. Take a can of compressed air, like you use to clean computer keyboards, and using the attached straw, blow out the dust or spider web that's partially blocking your pilot orifice. Where the pilot flame is usually lit, blow right down that flange, as well as through the air hole that is on the side of the pilot assembly. If you do it right, the pilot flame should be a nice and strong blue color. Another thought. Is this a vented or unvented fireplace? If it's vented, make sure it has the oxygen it needs to burn by checking for blocked vents or opening a closed fireplace fume above it.

I have a Model 792864B. Before you attempt to light the pilot light - make sure that any wall control switch or remote control for the fireplace is in the off position. Locate the gas supply line. There should be a gas supply valve to turn on the gas supply. The valve is usually painted a different color than the supply line like blue, green or yellow. Open the valve by pivoting the handle to be parallel to the gas line, usually counter-clockwise. When it is closed it is at a 90 degree angle from the supply line. Locate the pilot light assembly - this is the pilot light. There should also be a red or black ignitor button and a black or green valve control knob with the words "on" "off" and "pilot" on it. It may be located inside a black box, mine is marked heatolator, that has a lift off top. Lift off the top of the box. Push in the valve control knob and turn it until the word "pilot" is in line with the arrow (my arrow is red) or indicator line. While pressing and holding in the valve control knob - it presses in about 1/4", press the red or black ignitor button repeatedly (once per second) until the pilot ignites. Once the pilot is lit, continue to hold the valve knob in for about 30 seconds and then slowly release. The pilot should remain lit. If it remains lit, press in and turn the valve control knob to the "on" position. The on/off wall or remote control switch should now light your fireplace. If the pilot doesn't ignite, turn off gas supply valve, wait about 5 minutes and try it again.
