Disclaimer: Diagnosis and repair should only be undertaken by qualified personnel. As noted in previous posts, complete fuel combustion requires sufficient air. Without the right amount of oxygen, incomplete combustion will occur and produce a dangerous amount of carbon monoxide. The American National Standards Institute mandates that unvented gas heaters be automatically turned off when the specified oxygen level is not achieved. The oxygen depletion sensor or ODS pilot system controls the automatic shut-off. The ODS system is part of the pilot assembly designed to regulate the flame performance. The pilot flame is consistent only within a very narrow range, so if oxygen {+}
During a combustion process, hydrogen and carbon atoms of the gas come in contact with the oxygen atoms. Heat is introduced to the mixture, increasing the molecular speed of the gas and oxygen molecules. The speed causes the molecules to collide with enough energy to break old bonds and create new ones. Molecules then release additional heat, resulting in a self-sustained combustion. Carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapor (H2O) are new products produced. Incomplete combustion is due to inadequate oxygen in the air-to-fuel mixture. This can be caused by one or all of the following.
  1. An inadequate primary air setting.
  2. Cooling of the flame by the flame contacting the log
