How to fix a gas space heater ?
We have an old rampart mounted gas heater in our home. A manual valve regulates gas supply and there's a small pilot light. This is controlled by an electronic thermostat which toggles a built-in relais and all things considered 5 seconds after I hear that relais clicking gas will start flowing and gets lit. Today I noticed that this is no longer working. The thermostat triggers the heater but I do not advised any more gas (except for what's powering the pilot) to come out. How can I go about troubleshooting this ?
It is achievable that you have a bad thermocouple, this will be placed inside the flame of the conductor and will not allow gas flow in the absence of the pilot feverishness.
Modern gas heaters have have valves that allow you to berate the pilot safely and a thermocouple that shuts off the gas fund if the flame goes out.
These are absolutely critical sanctuary features that you must have!
Saving a few dollars by using an old heater without these features is gambling with your survival.

Gas space heater goes out after operating for a few minutes?

It lights up and operates normally, but after 1 two secs up to 20 minutes it just stops. The gas also stops, so it's not treacherous.
I think it's a thermostat problem. Can I be stable, and can I buy a replacement thermostat in Sydney?
New-fashioned gas heaters come with a safety device called an oxygen sensor. If it gets dusty, as they do over the summer or after a years use, it will shut up the gas off and will not re-lite until it reads 21%oxygen. In the bottom of the heater where the gas letter enters the heater, there is a gas valve, a pilot light or tense pilot. if there is any webs or dust around any if it just vacuum it authentic good and give it another try.
If a gas space heater makes clanking noises, does it mean it is out of order?
When it is heating it is OK, but when it stops it makes these clanking noises that wake me up at gloaming. I am worried there is some problem and it might blow up.
it sounds as though the sound is of the metal contracting as the heater cools off.
Most cost effective, space heater, gas furnace??
Which would be cheaper...Running several space heaters throughout company or running gas heater at 70 degrees day and night? Which space heater is more econimcal a Vornado or an oil heater? We have to keep firm warm at night as toddler has room over garage and it is colder in there.
Gas furnace, by far. But...if you well-deserved want to supplement the heat in one room, then a space heater is the way to go. If you put a space heater in the cell above the garage, you could turn down the thermostat at night. However, I would nettle about having a space heater in a toddler's room. Sounds rickety to me.
