Troubleshooting Camco Olympian Wave 3 Catalytic Safety Heater That Does Not Stay Lit


I have a problem with heater it will burn as long as you hold gas control valve in but will not light complete across filter...I have held control valve down for five minutes and when you turn it loose flame goes away.Any help would be appreciated.

The flame is supposed to go out when you switch the valve from "start" to "high". Check out the demonstration video I attached which goes through the whole process of starting and using the Camco Olympian Wave 3 Catalytic Safety Heater for Small RVs # CAM57331. You want to first open a window to ensure complete combustion and make sure the gas is turned on. Push and hold the start knob for 10 seconds then hit the sparker button until you see a flame. After 60 seconds you can let go of the start knob and switch it to high. The flame should go out and the catalytic combustion process should take place.

If issues persist then let me know and I will look more into the issue that you are having.
