I have a LP gas log heater, the thermostat is in the living room and I would like to shut this room off this winter. Is it possible to add a second thermostat elsewhere in the house so this can be done?

Yes. If the thermostat is connected with electrical wires you can buy some wire and move the thermostat or add a second thermostat. Just be aware that dual thermostats can cause people to forget that they have to shut both of them off to stop the heater.

Hi. I have a Cozy CDV255B wall-mount heater. The burner stopped working suddenly. The pilot is on. I jumped the two wires connected to thermostat and that did not help. Then I replaced the thermostat and...

Did someone possibly turn the control knob from ON position to the Pilot Position. If that's the case, the burner won't come on.

Another thing that might cause your problem is low gas pressure. If you have LP Gas, the regulator on the gas tank may be frozen or the tank may be almost empty.. This happens frequently when temperatures remain well below freezing. To test this theory, soak a bath towel in hot water, ring it out and quickly place it around the LP tank's regulator. This will thaw the regulator and allow gas to flow smoothly to your heater. Remove the wet towel from the regulator once it has thawed.

If the freezing continues to occur, wrap insulation around and inside the bonnet of the tank. You may also want to contact your propane provider about this. As they may need to add some ethanol to your tank.

How do you start the heater for the first time in the spring?I don't know where to begin. The pool pump is on and working.

Make sure all gas is on to the heater and the gas valve inside the heater. Be sure all winterize plugs are in place and tight then make sure all valves are letting flow to the heater. If the heater won't start at this point be sure you have enough gas if it is LP. You need at least 30% in the tanks to get the heater to fire. Then you will have a shut off valve just outside the heater. Shut this off and you will fine a union near this, crack the union open and turn the gas back on for a few seconds till you smell gas then shut off and tighten the union back up. let it sit for 15 or 20 min. to let the gas clear then try again. If it still won't start it may be time for a repairman. I hope this helps, good luck.

How do you shut down

the pilot light always stays on, its designed to allow your heater to turn on by itself without you needing to light a match every time. if the pilot light is burning you have nothing to worry about. its when the pilot light goes out that a small amount of gas leaks into the room. and by small i mean smaller than a hand held lighter... if you still want to shut the entire thing down you could turn off the gas line feeding the heater or possibly the whole house, otherwise the pilot light will stay on. as far as the actual heater turning off, thats probably controlled by some sort of thermostat somewhere. if you set the temp to very cold it should stay off. if that doesn't work then you may need a new thermostat.

My new RHFE-1004FA has a slight whistle to it.

May have a bad regulator on the tank or bad gas pressure. The colder it is, the less gas pressure you get out of the tank.
