ok

Sounds silly but are you sure batteries are properly installed (+/-) in both remote and receiver. More times than you can imagine we have determined one battery was installed backwards.

will check and let you know, however this is the second set of new batterys
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 8 months ago

Also verify the simple things.PLugged in to power, control known on valve turned to On (not left in pilot position)

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
ok batterys are in right, power is plugged in and control is positioned to on
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 8 months ago

Next have you verfiied the codes match on receiver and remote (that no one messed around and changed )

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Codes are both at A1
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 8 months ago

OK the only other thing mentioned in the manual is a clogged burner orifice or gas pressure issue which could be gas inlet pressure or bad valve.You could clean the orifice but checking valve and inlet pressure would require getting a technician with a manometer to do.

ok thanks can you suggest technician for this heater in the area of 48042
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 8 months ago

Unfortunately I am in in south Alabama so not sure about who in Michigan would service. You might try calling around to local heating contractors.

Since Desa filed bankruptcy in 2009 an is no longer around, there is no longer a service provider locator site online.
