Need help diagnosing my non-working gas wall heater.? Answered
Hello, I live in Arizona so we just tried to use our gas wall heater for the first time tonight (hasn't been necessary before now). This is the type of heater we have installed in our hallway/bedroom. http://www.homedepot.com/buy/williams-monterey-50-000-btu-natural-gas-top-vent-wall-furnace-5009622.html#.UJ-qvYaElhE
I lit the pilot and then moved up to the thermostat that is mounted on the wall. I moved the dial from the left (which starts at 50) over to the far right (which stops at 90). I felt and heard the thermostat click over at about the 65 degree mark (which seems accurate to me), but nothing happens. Usually, immediately after the thermostat clicks over, the gas flow increases, and the heater starts to do its thing.
I have included some pictures of the thermostat, and heater itself. If someone could tell me which connections I need to check with a volt meter, it would be greatly appreciated. One thing I want to add, we had a light socket go out on the same wall about a month ago, that doesn't seem to be getting any power. I have tried several new bulbs and it doesn't work. So I would need to figure out how to check if the thermostat is even getting power as well. It's possible that the thermostat isn't even getting power. Thanks
SOLVED: Thanks everyone for your replies. It actually was the solenoid inside of the heater, but the good news is it works fine, a wire just came loose. Everything is working great now. I wouldn't have thought to look there if it wasn't for your comments. Thanks again!
