Is this a new heater or have you had it awhile? If new, yuo may have air in the line that will need to be bled out. The heater has a gas valve with a pilot setting on it. Make sure the gas is turned on. Turn the knob to the pilot setting and depress the handle. Holding it down and at the same time, press down on the red button that sparks. You may have to repeat this a few times. Once the pilot lights, continue to hold down on the pilot knob for about 30 seconds. When uou release the knob, the flame should stay o. If it does not, replace the thermocouple. Once the pilot flame is steady, turn the gas valve knob to on.

SOURCE: pilotlight will not light, getting spark, but no propane.

make sure you have the gas valve knob on turned to pilot while pressing that down while pushing the spark it should light or it is tripped on a safety like rollout switch or oxygen depletion sensor if equipped which all ventless heaters are

SOURCE: dyna glo tag along propane heater pilot stays on but when turning

sounds like either a bad thermocouple or more likely a pressure regulator problem. should have unit checked by someone familiar with propane systems.

SOURCE: My glo-warm propane heater keeps shutting off automatically-pilot and all.

Clean the pilot and if that does not help replace the thermocouple. Also make sure you have correct ventilation to the room as that can also cause this type of heater to shut down.

Sounds like a bad thermocouple. When they go bad, they won't open the gas valve when switched from pilot to on.

Pilot light wont light will spark, but no propane

verify the inlet pressure to the heater. those pezioelectric spark lighters are garbage. make sure all manual shut off valves to the heater are open. Pilot tubing may also be blocked

My glo warm heater is not burning clean it is leaving a odor and making our eyes burn what causes this and can it be fixed

May need to be cleaned. Get a can of air used for computers and blow out the burners and pilot. Re-light the pilot when complete.

We had a problem keeping the pilot light to stay on, and this site recommended that it could possibly be the thermocoupler that was causing our problems also. We ordered the thermocouple, put it on,hooked it back up and it worked great! Thank you so much.
ordered thermocouple from www.masterparts.net
