Question about Desa International Blower Glow Warm Wall Heater

1 Answer

My Glo Warm keeps automatically shutting off.

When it gets extremely cold outside and the glo warm reaches its set temp, it not only shuts off but the pilot goes out too and I have to relight the pilot which is also a headache at this point.

    Pilot keeps going out?

  • RonnieIsaacs Oct 28, 2008

    Mine don't have a set temp but it just randomly shuts off everything does. I have lived here for about 5 years and never had a problem with it. Then when I went to get it going this year it started doing this. At first I thought it was just contaminates in the line but I know I have had it running long enough that it has cleared the line.

My water heater will heat up the water, once it comes to temp, the pilot light goes out.

depends on the year it was made , but if it was made after 2010 there is a high possibility it has electronic ignition, these models don't have a standing pilot and all signs of flame go away after it reaches temperature, I guess the best way is to see if it relights after using some of the hot water and it adds some cold water into itself , if its this type it will relight itself and burn to heat up cold water

When I turn the oven down the gas goes off and have to start again

read the user manual as the temp should be thermostat controlled were with gas there is always a pilot light burning when the oven is in use and when the set temp is reached the gas burner is shut off and when the temp fall below set point , the gas is turned on again and the pilot light starts the burner
by using the timer , when the time is reached the gas is turned off and of course you will have to relight it
if you do not have a user manual , download one from google or talk with a gas repair shop

Lights but turns off in about a minute

It might have a built in thermostat that will light the heater when room temp falls below a certain temp. It should then relight and warm things back up. As long as the pilot stays lit it should work just fine.

My natural gas glo warm gwn6 wall heater keeps shutting off

Julie, the problem you're having with your DESA, Gas Glo Warm heater may be the result of a clogged Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) which is part of the pilot. I have included a link on how to clean the pilot and the ODS, as well as the burner, that you can download and print for future reference.

In addition, the thermocouple may be failing and will need to be replaced. To troubleshoot this, here is another link that will help you.

If after doing all of the above and you fin it's necessary to replace the Thermocouple, You can purchase one from A & B Sales

Seems like it shuts off when its gets to a certane temp have to relight pilot

Check if the oil temp does not reach 450F because if it does, it will trip the high limit device that will shut off the burner flame as well as the pilot flame. But if high limit device trips off prematurely (at temperature less than 450F) you have to replace it. Just make sure that its sensing bulb does not touch the fire tube.
