Why wont my everdure gas heater stay alight


Some heaters have to be "warmed up" by holding the button down for approx. 30 seconds after it lights. These are ones with whats called a "thermocouple". The thermocouple has to remain a certain temp. or the unit will shut off. If the thermocouple goes bad, it can be replaced

Hi, I have an Everdure natural gas room heater and the pilot light has increased in size recently, comes halfway up the heating panels/plates. The heater is also hard to light sometimes.


Mark, Natural Gas pilot flames are fairly long. Usually about 2" to 2 1/2" long. However from what you are describing about the pilot flame licking the ceramic plaques of the heater is not normal. Plus, you indicated that you're having a hard time lighting the pilot. All of this leads me to believe, that the unit needs to be thoroughly cleaned inside and out. Especially, if it hasn't been professionally serviced on at least, an annual basis. Vent-free or Flue-less heating appliances collect a lot of dust, lint, etc when in operation. Because whatever is floating in the household is going to eventually work it's way into the heater and clog things up.

Cleaning the unit is something you can do yourself, with minimal tools. A vacuum cleaner with a hose, brush attachment, crevice tool and a can of compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean you computer with) is all you need. The compressed air with a straw nozzle is used to blow out the pilot tip. this won't be mentioned in the Owner's Manual. http://www.everdure.com/MANUALS/HEATERs/Gas/EC%20&%20ECR%20User%20manual.pdf

I hope all of this will help you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Cheers....

I have a everdure 6 burner gas heater. its pretty old and works sometimes. the problem is that it take a while to turn on and once it started it just turns its self off with in minutes. this happens...


Your flue-less gas heater may simply need a a good interior cleaning and servicing. From what you described it sounds like the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) may be clogged with dust, lint etc. The ODS is part of the pilot assembly and constantly reads the oxygen level in the room, when the heater is in use.If the oxygen level drops to 25% the ODS shuts the unit OFF by closing the gas valve. This can occur if the ODS is dirty, because it's falsely reading the oxygen level.

One other thing that can mimic this problem is a faulty Thermocouple. With age, they wear out. It's also a safety feature that controls the gas flow to the pilot.

Everything I have mentioned is repairable. But, if you want to make it a DIY project, it will require some dismantling of the heater cabinet to access everything and replace parts. If the heater is as you say "pretty old", you may want to consider buying a new heater. Sometimes, it's just not worth the time and effort to repair an old heater.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

No gas coming threw to heater everdure brigadire there is spark but no flame or gas


Check to make sure that the gas line to the unit is in fact, turned ON. Check the pilot for obstructions, as it may need cleaning. In addition, the gas control valve on the heater, may be in the wrong position or setting for lighting the furnace. And finally, check any other gas appliances you have, to see if they are functioning properly. If they're not, your gas may have been turned OFF, by your gas provider.
