Question about Williams (5009622) Ceramic Gas Wall Mounted Panel Heater

Open Question

I just installed a new gas wall furnace and the gas smell is very strong. I checked all of the connections for leaks and they're all good. Do I need to turn the pilot down? If so, how do I do that?

SOURCE: my new wall furnace was working fine, shut off now

Jump the two thermostat wires together to test the thermostat. Next, jump the terminals at the heater to test the thermostat wires. If the unit fires, you have found your problem. If it does not, you will need to turn the thermostat to the highest setting and check for 24 volts at the gas valve. If yes, bad gas valve, if no, bad transformer.

SOURCE: I have Wiiliams direct vent wall furnace. I smell

Dear Alex191: I am shocked and amazed that the Williams heater company is STILL knowingly and willingly selling faulty direct vent gas heaters. My problems took place in 1988! I bought a 30,000 BTU Williams DIRECT VENT from The Home Depot. I took the time to remove window sashes and run gas line to the Williams heater that I had placed in the window aperture. I was glad to finally have heat and be able to heat the area of the house where I stayed. Then I began to smell gas when the Williams was OFF. I traced it to the area where the pilot light gas tubing entered the combustion chamber. I removed the Williams unit and replaced it with an identical make and model and the SAME THING HAPPENED!!! I sat on my bed and almost cried. I had the gas company come out and they labled the problem as a "fuzz leak". The warranty repairman came out and had no idea what to do. Tightening the retaining nut did nothing. I called Williams and even back then they said that they were aware of the problem. They called me back and wanted to send me a part and asked me, "Can you work on it?" I returned the Williams and bought a Perfection-Schwank CONSOL heater that burns the air in the room and vents horizontally to a 4 inch vertical gas vent and was very satisfied with it. When they went out of business I bought an "Empire" brand gas heater. I don't know if I'll ever buy another direct vent heater from anyone. I will be glad to write an affidavit should you decide to suit the Williams company.

SOURCE: Williams 3003622 Wall Mounted 30,000 BTU The pilot

I'm having the same exact problem... At first we thought was the vent... but the way the flames goes out... it seems that there is "not enough oxygen" more than "blown out by the wind"... right after both main & pilot goes out, I can't even light any external flame inside the chamber... and it doesn't feel like the outside cold air coming in... it just feel like there is some sort of gas in the chamber that's so strong, it prevents flame... and the only thing I can think of is that it doesn't have enough oxygen, but too much natural gas, and flame can't sustain.

There is a strong smell of gas from my cooker, pipe from cyclinder to cooker appears ok , new world 55wlg


Do not light anything if you are smelling gas. Make up a soapy solution in a spray bottle and apply to all connections and look for bubbles. Most common place to leak is hook-up at cylinder and hook-up at cooker. If you can't find the leak and continue to smell gas, do not use it. Also make sure your cylinder is not empty.

We had our furnace repair turn on our Aprilaire 760 last summer. It gives off a very strong smell similar to an air freshener. We'd like that to be less in intensity. Furnance company says it's just fine....


I hope this helps you, have the repair person check to see if a furnace filter air freshener was installed at your last furnace check up without your knowledge. Also checked all wall and or floor registers to make sure the source of smell is not coming from them, it may be circulating though the duct system.last thing is to replace media pad in humidifier along with furnace filters, if you have air cleaner wash filters with hot water and baking soda, wipe & let dry before re- installing them. Your repair person may have use a strong smelling cleaning solution in humidifier that is now circulating though out your home, good luck.

When I first turn on my air-conditioner (it's attached to the furnace) a smell of raw gas comes through the vents. My air conditioner is a Lennox.


Obviously you have a leak in/at/near the furnace. Most gas companies will come out at no cost and do a leak search. Strongly recommend you do that.

Based on your description I would guess that there is a "leak" somewhere between the gas valve and the actual fire. Use soap bubbles to check the connections at the gas valve. Also check the gaskets in the Gas valve the same way. Lastly there may be a cracked or misaligned burner causing the "leak". Best of Luck!

Smell gas through vents when furnace is running


I would strongly suggest a carbon monoxide detector first. Also your gas provider should do a free leak check. This is nothing to play with.
