The wheels fell off

How do I attach the wheels if they fell off after accidentally hitting it with my car? Will this be covered under warranty?
Asked by: Matt
Hi Matt, per Dyna-Glo's warranty which can be found in the PDF file that I have linked below and is also present on the Homedepot.com Product Page, it states: "This warranty does not cover claims which do not involve defective workmanship or materials". Hope that helps! http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/5c/5c6ff1a6-684e-40de-9106-8759cc31a31a.pdf We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future.

Propane Source required?

In the manual it says this heater must be used with a liquid vaporization system. Can this unit be hooked up to a standard 20 lb propane tank or is something else required? Thanks.
Asked by: gpwdy
Best source is a standard 20lb grill cylinder. Larger cylinders could be attached but it would be hard to move and would require a longer hose.

18K BTU Propane Cabinet Gas Portable Heater is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 168.

Very nice Construction Heater - like a construction site where the building is not closed up, that is what it says in the manual. Great for my drafty cabin. The gas fitting does fit onto the coarse threads of a standard 20 pound BBQ propane bottle except it screws to the inside fine threads, not the outside. The pilot light stays lit after 30 seconds according to the manual, although mine seems to stay lit after about 10 seconds. One tip - the wheels are not all the same. There is a bigger locking pair which go in the back and a smaller non-locking pair which go in the front.

I have purchased 12 of them in the last 2 years and 5 of them worked well enough to keep. Thanks to Home Depot's return policy, I am performing a much needed quality control service and it seems to be effective. If the pilot light does not stay lit after 4 seconds, take it back, it will only get worse. Last year, only about 30% of those purchased worked well enough to keep. This year about 80% of those purchased work well enough to keep. Well done!

This is an UPDATE to a previous review entitled "Simply will not light" entered on Jan 17, 2017. Yes, allow me to clarify... upon finally accepting the advice of my wife, I swapped out propane tanks and wouldn't you know it, the heater instantly came to life and has consistently been working the past couple weeks in my well ventilated garage. Heats very nicely when you use a propane tank that works! Apologies to the manufacturer for the initial poor rating, unfortunately I am not able to edit my prior rating, as confirmed by Home Depot Associate. Next time, listen to wife first!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Supplemental Heater This product performed as expected right out of the box! The three settings (Low-Med-High) had a burner for each setting and allowed for a quick heat up as well as conserving propane while running on only one burner. The only complaint I have after using the unit for 10 days is that the pilot light goes out easy, either from a light wind, or simply rolling the unit to another area of the room. However, the pilot re-lights easily.

It starts easily, operates quietly, and really puts out some heat without any of the nasty smell typical of kerosene space heaters. I only didn't give it 5 stars because I don't know yet know how long a tank of gas will last or how the heater will hold up over time. But so far I'm very happy with it. I like that it radiates heat out the front instead of all around and doesn't require electricity to operate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty Product Didn't stay lit right out of the box. This is what many other reviewers have also said. I should have heeded their warnings. Nice idea for a heater, but just has serious problems.
