The insert sounds like the cap covering the adjustment screw. Pin hole is for cap removal. Wondering why flame is so high?! Shouldn't have orange flame. If heater doesn't light with lower flame... thermocouple (thing that the flame heats up) may be bad.

SOURCE: Heatilator Pilot Issue

Any pilot adjustment would be under a large screw with a flat blade slot in it. There would be a smalled flat blade screw under it. Warning: Too small of a flame and your safety device won't work.

SOURCE: pilot light flame is mostly yellow. LP gas

Hi,
Thr thing you need to do is take the pilot assembly all apart and blow the dust and dirt out of it.
After burning for many, many hours the air that is move up through the pilot assembly leaves dust and dirt which plugs off a bit of the air and makes the flame run rich. Meaning that it does not get enough air mixed in for complete combustion.
When you clean it you will see the dirt and dust com out of it.
Reassemble carefully just as you took it apart and it will be back to working great again!!

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

SOURCE: how to light the pilot on a dearborn room heater

Turn the knob to PILOT. press the knob down. Light the pilot and hold the knob till the pilot stays lit by itself. Then advance the knob to the ON position. Turn up the thermostat.

Pilot flame seems too high. How can I adjust and how tall should flame be?


The pilot flame should be a firm blue color impinging directly on the thermocouple enough to turn it red hot after a few minutes. Generally, the pilot flame need not go past the thermocouple more than a 1/4 - 3/8" and should not be a lazy yellow color. As far as adjustment to the pilot flame, it depends on the heater brand you have. Look at the gas control for a small adjustment screw near where the silver pilot tubing connects from it (it connects to the pilot assembly on the other end). Adjusting it counter-clockwise will lower the flame size, if necessary. If the pilot has a lazy yellow flame, the pilot orifice may just be dirty. With the pilot flame off, use a can of compressed air (with attached straw) to blow out any debris/dust from inside the pilot assemble where the orifice is. Good luck.

My gas Dearborn model#drc40mc pilot light stays lit.when I turn to on position and heater comes on , it burns high , even on low number setting, then after few seconds goes out taking pilot out also


clean/replace the flame sensor. Your heater doesn't recognize that it has lit and continues to try and light the gas. when the sensor doesn't tell the 'brain' it lit? it shuts down the gas for safety reasons.

I can"t keep my pilot light going.


I am assuming this is a patio heater. I have extensive experience with gas appliances. The most common problem with pilot light issues is the thermocouple it is a probe that is directly over the flame , it senses the flame and allows gas to flow, if it senses no flame the gas valve closes. Patio heaters are also quite finicky, sometimes a simple adjustment of the thermocouple will do the trick. Also thorough cleaning of the orifice is necessary at least 1 x a year.

Have a vent free lp wall mounted heater.40 lp tank with regulater. pilot light will light but only the tip of pilot light is flame.there is a space between pilot light and tube where lp comes out. does not...


Too much gas pressure. Are you sure that this is a LP heater and not a Natural gas heater? Is the regulator you have rated under 1/2 pound pressure? Try to throttle down the shutoff on the tank to see if pilot gets better. If so, you have a pressure issue. Gas you adjust the pilot gas valve?

Pilot light won't light on ventless fireplace


Ventless Gas logs, Vanguard, VS30PR. Propane gas
Pilot light stays lit various times, sometimes for several days then other times for a few minutes. Lights best when temp outside is below freezing. Pilot flame appears to receive too much air. How do you adjust the pilot flame? Is this done using two screws marked A & E? Do you have suggestions?
Thanks,
Ed

Pilot flame does not reach the ignite point(VENTLESS SPACE HEATER


The pilot jet may be contaminated with with oxidized metal particles; wipe its 'nose.'
If that doesn't help, most of the regulators on gas appliances have a small screw to adjust the flame length/height.

Can't raise flame level


Obviously, if you read my post, I DIDN'T solve the problem because the problem WASN'T with a PRINTER but with a HEATER. I know that there are Dearborn heaters all over the place, but for some reason your site doesn't want to address them.
