Question about Desa International Blower Glow Warm Wall Heater

1 Answer

My glowarm wall heater does not always respond to the electronic spark. Repeated pressing the button does not always ignite the propane. A simple bang on the left side works ever time. Do I have dirt or debris in the gas valve. In atlanta ga. Where can I get this annoying problem resolved. Can the heater be returned to the factory or authorized repair service?

I have a very similar problem with an empire unvented heater in my shop and what I have found that works the best for me is to give pilot and burners a thourgh cleaning every couple weeks. I get a lot of fine dust and saw dust in it and I use my air compressor to blow out all that I can then run vacumn over burners. I hope this helps you. Thank you. P.S. I hit mine to if I'm to busy to clean right then and it does work.

I have a GloWarm propane/lp gas space heater. Can I use bottled propane tanks?


no you can't, and aren't you worried about carbon monoxide poisoning? Where does the burnt air go?

GloWarm Heaters - ventfree infrared heaters
GloWarm Infrared heaters are residential gas space heaters that are ventfree,
so no venting is required

GloWarm Plaque Infrared heaters direct heat from radiant plaques that
"warm like the sun."

Infrared heaters heat objects in the room before the air,
making them ideal for un-insulated rooms in your home.

All propane heaters require a 100 lb. tank or larger!

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.

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

The serviceman said we needed a thermacouple for GloWarm Model FBS-28000LP wall-mounted propane heater. Where can I buy one?


Bring the old one to a good hardware store or home center, they should be able to match it up. Find a store that sells heaters and you will have a better chance.

Propane heater has spark but wont light


ODS/Pilot may be clogged make sure you clean it out according to the instructions in your owner's manual. If you need a copy of the manual let me know and I will try to find it for you. If it is still not working it could be the gas regulator or the ignitor cable. For Glow warm parts contact Master Parts at 800-446-1446 or you also can find them online at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps you!

Hello, I have Propane wall mount heater -GLOWARM FBS-20BB and I would like to change the thermocoupler. I need to know if you need to do anything more than turn off the internal ball valve propane shutoff....


Hi,

Once you turn the gas off, be sure to unplug it if your model has one. While you do this you should also clean the inside with a light brush and shop vac.

Natural Gas To Propane on a model # Vn2000bt


There should be a conversion kit that came with the unit plus installation instructions. If not, then the type of kit you need will be identified in the unit paperwork. You may want to have a technician perform this task if you are unsure in just the slightest. Natural gas and propane use different sized nozzels for dispersing the gas for proper ignition. If not installed properly it could cause incomplete combustion, which = CARBON MONOXIDE = ETERNAL SLEEP. Hope this helps!

How to install an igniter?


if the heater uses a hot surface igniter its a simple matter of unscrewing the igniter and replacing it with another unit. if it is a spark ignition, the spark wire is a heavy insulated wire that goes to the gap. check out white-rodgers for a replacement. if your furnace uses a purge mode get a purge cycle programmable igniter.
