Question about Endless Summer 2009 Open Flame Patio Heater
I have a patio heater which does not light. I have a new cylinder bottle, and i cannot hear gas coming out, nor can i get the pilot to light, even if i try and use a match to light. admittedly, i had left the heater outside uncovered for 12 months unused. I recently assembled it, but can't get it to work.
i am not sure what the make of the heater is. i randomly picked one from the product list as i am required to do so to submit my question

You have to hold the button down for 30 seconds at least before turning the knob to ON. If you are doing this and it still goes out after you let up on the knob, then it needs a new flame sensor, or thermocouple. Same thing different names.

THe thermocouple either has 2 wires or a coppr tube going to the gas valve. They can be bought at a good hardware store or a plumbing supply. The length of the wires or copper tube will be the determining factor as to which one you need. As these thermocouples, when heated generate a small electric charge tha keeps the gas valve open. Should cost no more than $10-15 USD

Hi, If the pilot light goes out when you turn the gas knob to full power on lighting them the most likely cause will be a worn thermocouple, these usually last between 2 years up to 6 years. Found this site very helpful, patio heater problem solving. They have a few solutions to checking patio heaters.
