How Do You Light the Pilot Light on an Empire Corcho Wall Heater Model R-15?

If the heater's sensors detect a safe atmosphere, any match or lighter can be used to ignite the heater's pilot light. If the atmosphere is not safe or the pilot is clogged, it may not light without cleaning or ventilation.

Empire Corcho wall heaters require the same care and attention any complex machinery does. Users should understand how the machines work and what maintenance they need.

  1. Read the sensors
  2. Make sure the atmosphere is safe. The heaters' sensors can detect low oxygen levels and the presence of contaminants.

  3. Clean pilot
  4. The pilot light must be kept clean. The pilot apparatus should be unscrewed and cleaned regularly.

  5. Use open flame
  6. A match or lighter can do the job.
