Customer Question
I own a model...

I own a model KWP324 wall mount propane heater. With the gas turned on but the heater shut off we smell no propane gas. When I turn the heater on, within minutes thee is a smell of gas. Even if I run it for a couple of hours the smell doesn't go away. we are afraid to sleep in the small 700 cub ft home. what do you sugggest?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Just the past week. Last year we used it infrequently and never smelled the gas.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I would prefer having someone who is familiar with this type of heater but if this isn''t practicall, I would try and repair the problem.my self

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

What type of service man could I ccall and how far away would they have to travel?
