This could have to do with the main gas feeds to the ceramic panels . they might be obstructed with a spider web or dirt,foriegn material etc.
easiest fix is to take a air compresser with a blow gun tip and blow out ant foriegn material or spider webs from the gas feed pipes to
the ceramic burners.
the gas feed pipes have large air induction holes that a small blow gun can fit its nozzle into to blow out the gas feed pipes without
having to disassemble them.
that is a big time & work saver.
I took my gas feed lines to the ceramic burners all apart, only to get out a spider web that i could have blown out with compressed air and saved myself 2 hours work.

anything inside the gas feed pipes to the ceramic burners will result in dark spots or the panels not staying lite, irratic burning
or no burning at all.
the gas needs to be able to get through unimpeded at proper flow and proper pressure for proper burning.
a spider web will mess up proper gas flow. some gas, but not enough gas will get through and ceramic wont burn well and might not hold a flame.


clean out the foriegn material from the ceramic gas feed lines.


Rare posibility,if the gas behind the ceramic element escapes around the edges of the ceramic, through a bad seal of the gasket,
this also will stop the ceramic from burning well.


mr heater is not made for easy diaassembly so try not to do more work than you have to.


use compressed air rather than taking mr heater all apart to clean out a gas feed pipe.

My delonghi blue flame heater has a continuous yellow flame is this normal and should it have ceramic panels


Yello is bad. The tips of the flame must be blue for proper combustion . There is an air mixture adjustment that must be made to decrease the amount of carbon monoxide. On the burner, there is a metal part that has slots on it and a screw holding it in place. Loosen the screw and , with the heater flame on, rotate that metal part until blue flame tips are seen.

How do I fix the flame sensor in a baxter oven?


Take off the right side panel and open the control panel door. Take a long screw driver and stick it in the hole where the flame sensor wire goes and remove the screw holding the flame sensor in place. Clean the metal rod on the flame sensor with a piece of fine grit sandpaper or emory cloth. Put flame sensor back in, make sure no insulation is touching the exposed metal part of the wire connector.

My water heater won't light. The pilot light works. But, when I try to swtch the pilot to regualr, the flame goes out.


You probably have a defective thermocouple. The thermocouple sits in the flame of the pilot, and the heat generates a small electrical current conducted back to the gas valve, keeping the pilot gas line open after you switch it to the "on" position. That's why you have to manually hold the gas valve depressed (on) during lighting in the "pilot" position, allowing the thermocouple time to heat up enough to generate its current. A defective thermocouple will not generate the holding current.

Williams debonair wall heater + pilot light problems


THE flame from the pilot should shoot past the thermo-couple and heat this up and make a small amount of mili- amps to prove the pilot light is lit. ..So if the flame doesn,t go past the thermo-couple it won, make mili-amps or its tme to change out the thermo-couple, They only cost lest than $8:00 and you can change it!

One year old heater


Try to hold the button down for 30 seconds at least before turning the knob to ON.
If you are doing this and it still goes out after you let up on the knob, then it may needs a new flame sensor.

Pilot lights but when ignition pops back up the flame goes out


will either be the unitrol control box or the thermocouple, when you push down you are holding two magnets together and waiting for a small charge to be created from the probe in the flame , if this is not working you have no charge and the magnets won;t stick to allow the valve to open, change the thermo and see if that works first, its way cheaper than a new controler
