I have an old (Meaning 1960s) Dynavent wall mounted propane

Customer Question

I have an old (Meaning 1960s) Dynavent wall mounted propane fired heater in my cabin in Maine. The pilot will light, fan starts in response to a thermostat call, but burners do not light. Is there someone who might be able to repair the unit? The unit will slide out of the case which is permanently installed in the wall.

Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

Any gas tech or plumber with experience servicing older gas fired units should be able to handle this. It sounds like you may have a weak thermopile as a possible culprit.
