How to turn on a propane heater
- Open the valve control knob on the propane tank by turning it counterclockwise.
- Press the button on the front or side of the oven and turn it to the start or light position.
- Press and hold to unlock the propane valve in the radiator and supply gas to the unit.
- Find the start button to turn on the gas stove.
- Turn the pilot knob, then press the power button.
- When the light is on, press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds.
- Set the wall heating temperature to the desired heating level.
If the thermocouple is too far from the flame, the pilot flame may go out and shut down the propane heater. You can easily solve this problem by bringing the thermocouple closer to the flame. If the propane stove is flashing but not burning, the gas cylinder that powers it may be empty or the gas may also be turned off.
Steps to safely ignite a wall-mounted gas stove
- Have a match or long lighter ready to light the pilot.
- Find the valve in the oven and turn on the pilot.
- Push the valve. You should hear a hiss from the valve.
- Let go of the valve and strike the match.
- Release the valve after one minute.
The ignition tube is a metal tube under the burner block and is characteristic of the slight rise at the end. When the pilot lights up, it becomes clear that the blue flame is finally burning. If you don’t see a small blue flame burning, the lights are out.
A small gas pipe with its own valve is connected to the pilot flame. When the stove is on, this valve opens and the electric spark ignites the pilot. A flame monitor detects ignition of the pilot burner, opens the burner valve and the pilot burner ignites the burners.
When you have had time to release the throttle, turn the knob to Pilot. Then, hold the reset button and bring the flame to a long lighter near the pilot hole. This should illuminate the stove pilot. When you’re sure the light is on, release the reset button.
Propane or natural gas heating solutions pose a real risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, which is why wall heaters are a popular option for those who want to avoid the risk of gas or propane. A good example of such a safe and reliable wall device is the Envi Heater.
Light the fire. The heat setting on the thermostat is very similar to the cooling option setting. Use the same switch or button to slide until you reach the heat. You can then use the same arrows used to set the cooling temperature to set the heating temperature.
CAUSE: The most common cause of electric heater failure is blown fuses. If the fuses are or have blown, the fuse can be replaced or, if necessary, the circuit breakers reset. Reconnect the device and turn it back on. See if the problem has been solved.
If you have an old gas stove, your heater uses a small blue flame called a pilot to make sure the burners ignite. Stoves, gas fireplaces, and older gas stoves often have similar indicator lights. Since the indicator must remain active, the oven always uses gas.
The indicator light is easy to find on some ovens because it is located directly behind the oven. For others, open the burner chamber lid or remove it completely and follow the gas connection from the main gas supply to the pilot burner. The control lamp is located in the oven behind a metal plate.
Switch the control lamp back on. Turn the knob to pilot and let the gas flow to the pilot. Light a lighter or match, then press the reset button. Hold the flame until the lights open. Press and hold the reset button until the indicator lights up continuously.
Locate the pilot unit including the throttle valve with on, off and pilot settings and the pilot reset button. Turn the valve to the closed position and wait a few minutes.
For many years, stoves have used a small continuous-burning flame called a pilot to ignite the burners during each heating cycle. While there are still warning lights in homes with older systems, most newly installed stoves use electronic ignition instead.
