How To Turn on and Ignite a Gas Wall Heater?

Sometimes figuring out how to turn on and ignite a gas wall heater can gradually turn into a very difficult and arduous process. In fact, learning how to turn on a wall heater does not require superior intelligence and it can be done quickly and safely without any of the hassle. Lighting the Pilot The pilot is simply a small flame inside of the heater that is constantly burning whether the heater is on or off. It’s there to ignite the gas when needed. Instead of immediately jumping into lighting the pilot, it’s a good idea to make sure the pilot is not already lit. If it’s not, then you are ready to light it. Search for a knob that reads “Pilot” and make sure it is turned to that setting. After turning it to the “Pilot” position, hold down the knob until you smell gas emitting. Release the knob and the pilot should stay lit. If the knob is not able to be pressed down, search for a red knob or something similar that can be pressed in. After holding the knob down for at least a minute, let go and the pilot should stay lit. If the pilot doesn’t stay lit, repeat the process of lighting the pilot again. If the pilot still refuses to light, there might be a problem with the heater. Powering On the Gas Now that your pilot is lit, you’ll want to turn the gas on so that your wall heater can begin actually producing heat. Locate the same knob that you turned to the “Pilot” position, and turn it to the “On” or “Operate” position. Doing this can be a little troublesome because it may take a few tries. Also remember that the flames might be a little intense if the knob is turned over to the “On” position too quickly. Setting the Desired Temperature Now that your gas has been turned on, you’re ready to set the temperature. Search for a knob with temperatures or numbers, and twist to the desired level.
