I have an eco-therm MV120 direct vent propane heater that will not stay lit.

9 posts in this topic

This unit will lite and stay lit for 10 minute to an hour and just quit. I have a nearly full propane tank. Thinking possibly a bad thermocouple any ideas chuck

If you follow the Maintenance Instruction in the manual provided by RegUs-PatOff you will most likely correct your problem.

Good Job posting the outcome ! Was the regulator you replaced of the same pressure/voulume ? Did you refill the tank at the same time ?

It was the same exact regulator only new. Did not fill the tank.

Install a drip leg on the gas supply line at the regulator to keep moisture from fouling the new regulator and causing new problems.

Remember to drain the drip leg yearly.
