Hi,
I,d suggest that you have either a case seal Damaged, allowing air into the casing.
Also possible fault may lie within the Flue air pressure Valve/Switch If applicable.
The heater/Boiler will have certain conditions to meet.
The Fan/flue switch ( Pressure switch. Will be designed to speed up the fan, before firing the main Burner.
As for the Noises, i,d suggest that the boiler is whats commonly known or reffered to As Kettling. Which usually indicates Overheating. This would cause the main-burner to distinguish as a fail safe.

Recommendations:- De-scale the heater, with a commercial descaler. Thoroughly flush the System. Then re-fill with required Amount Of Commisioning Fluid. i.e Fernox Or Sentinel et,c.

Also get the Fan/flue checked out for correct running speeds.

Mike @ compurepair.

SOURCE: Glo Warm propane heater won't light

There is really not a lot to go wrong with the heater itself so my first guess would be that the regulator is bad, not letting the proper amount of gas through. You can check it for leaks with a bottlee of soapy water but even if you don't see a leak there is a rubber gasket inside with a pressure spring that is probably bad.

SOURCE: My glo-warm propane heater keeps shutting off automatically-pilot and all.

my heater says if the pilot light keeps going off automatically it is a safety function that means it does not have enough fresh air to operate

Without the model number of the heater it is hard to give an accurate answer but I will give you some suggestions.

I would start with cleaning the pilot ODS assembly.
http://www.msservice.net/ts/reseat_thermo-clean_pilot-ODS.htm

I would check the regulator on the heater...if it is propane these gas get raw gases in the regulator and cause the unit not to pressure up correctly.

Give these items a try first before replacing any parts.

Thanks

There may be dust building up in the ODS safety pilot assembly. The simplest way toresolve this is to flish the pilot with rust buster. Why rustbuster? It has a telescoping tube that makes it easy to direct the squirt into the pilot. Let it dry then retry. You will be amazed.

Propane heater has spark but wont light


ODS/Pilot may be clogged make sure you clean it out according to the instructions in your owner's manual. If you need a copy of the manual let me know and I will try to find it for you. If it is still not working it could be the gas regulator or the ignitor cable. For Glow warm parts contact Master Parts at 800-446-1446 or you also can find them online at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps you!

We had a problem keeping the pilot light to stay on, and this site recommended that it could possibly be the thermocoupler that was causing our problems also. We ordered the thermocouple, put it on,hooked it back up and it worked great! Thank you so much.
ordered thermocouple from www.masterparts.net
