Patio heater not working

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

    I was given a patio heater that I can't get to light. I have a new propane cylinder but although the ignition works no gas seems to be going though to the top. I know it was left outdoors for at least a year without being used.

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 pilot light has to heat up the thermocouple. Is the thermocouple in the flame? If so, the them. could be bad. Replace

SOURCE: need parts: pilot assembly and thermocouple

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.

Sahara big burn patio heater


From the Troubleshooting Guide - Check the Obvious Turn on the gas and listen at the burner to see if you can hear the gas arriving.
If the patio heater has an electronic ignition system make sure that there is a spark. If there is a spark but the heater will not light up, try using a lighter or burning spill to light the gas. Be ready for a flash over if you have been trying to light the gas for a while-there might be a small cloud of gas near the burner.

Start at the Bottom The most likely reason that a gas heater will not work is that there is no gas. Take out the empty gas cylinder and replace it with a full one. Often you will feel that there is still gas in an empty cylinder but there is not enough to create the pressure needed to drive the gas burner. An empty cylinder will feel light.

Check the Gas Regulator The gas regulator is the connection of the gas cylinder to the gas pipe that takes the gas up to the burner. Some regulators have a flip switch that prevents the valve in the top of the cylinder from being depressed-effectively an "off" switch. If there is such a switch, make sure that it is in the "on" position.

Check the Gas Pipe Although it is most unlikely that the gas pipe can get blocked, remove the gas pipe from the regulator and from the gas inlet at the top of the heater. This pipe is pressure fitted and held in place by pipe clips. Blow air through the pipe to ensure that it is clear.

Check the Burner The burner will be a very simple assembly. Take each part off in turn and check for any blockages. Also check that the burner apertures are set correctly. Beneath each burner is a small chamber in which air and gas are mixed. Make sure that the gas and air inlets are clear.

If Your Heater has a Pilot Light If your heater has a pilot light, there is the possibility that the thermo couple has failed. The thermo couple is usually shaped like an inverted "v" and sits in the flame of the pilot light. The temperature acts on the thermocouple to keep the gas supply to the burner open. A good indication that the thermocouple has broken down is that the pilot light goes out when you try to turn the heater on. Thermo couples are readily available patio heater parts and usually available from stock.

If you have carried out all the checks and the heater will still not light, you can repeat all the checks more slowly and carefully or take your heater to a specialist for a service.

My brand new patio heater wont turn on


To get your patio heater to light first check the tank has plenty of LPG/gas and the regulator is turned to on. Next turn the gas control knob to pilot (on some heaters this is a red line on others it has a spark symbol) and press in - hold for at least 30 secs. Press the piezo ignitor several times and continue to hold for another 60 secs. Gently ease off the pilot to release and turn to full power. You should hear the gas jet come on. If there is air in the pipes you might have to repeat. Fould this site very useful patio heater top repair tips.

I hooked up my patio heater...but cannot get it to light...not hearing any gas sound...nothing seems to get it to go...any suggestions?


Some of the newer heaters have a pulse pilot, this is a very small flame that pulses away and can be hard to light first time. If it's new make sure to vent and clear all the air out. If an old heater take a look at this patio heater help pages, they have some help pages which I found very useful.

Not getting any propain to my patio heater


First check the gas, connect the regulator to the cylinder but unclip the hose and do not light the heater. Turn the gas on for a second to see if the regulator is working OK. Next make sure there are no blockages in the pipes up to the burner. If all clear then vent the pipes to clear all air. If still not getting any gas the problem could be a faulty tilt switch cutting the gas supply or a worn thermocouple. Short out the tilt switch to test and if not fixed then change the thermocouple.

The pilot light ignights but as soon as I let the knob out to light the heater the pilot goes out. I also noticed that when I depress the pilot knob I can not hear the gas coming out like I use too. I have...


i suggest you change thermocouple on heater it is the pilot control, firstly i would find where it attach's to valve and make sure it is screwed into valve properly (do not over tighten). If the pilot still doesn't go change the thermopile and if that don't work change the valve, but it most likely the thermocouple

I need to replace my patio gas bottle...


always remember the threads are reverse on a gas cylinder and you are likely tightening this joint if your going the wrong way. some also have a quick disconnect and are like an air chuck and should be removed this way.

Coleman 5040 Patio Heater w/ Light - Light works, Heater does not


BE VERY CAREFUL sticking matches in any propane appliance! With the gas OFF see if you can physically see the spark when you push the ignitor, if yes, the problem may be the regulator or bottle pressure the only test i am aware of for the regulator is replacement.

Napoleon PTH10PSS Infra-Red Patio Heater


If you have a piezo ignition, then all you will hear is one click when you turn the knob. If I am guessing correctly, when you push in the knob and turn it, the gas flows to the pilot assembly, when you turn the knob far enough it will clilck and that sends the spark to the pilot assembly to light the pilot. Try turning the knob slowly before you get to the click, that will allow more gas to flow to the pilot. If this does not work, then you may have a blockage in the pilot.

There must be a blockage in the hose and regulator or your large tank may be checking and not allowing the unit to stay lit. Remove the large bottle. Let the gas line equalize for about 30 seconds and then reattach the bottle. Very slowly, open the knob on the large tank and I mean very slowly. Did I say open it slowly. The new OPD propane tanks often have a very touchie excess control valve that won't allow enough gas through if opened too rapidly. Now tray and light the heater. If you still experience the same, get a technician involved so they can inspect the gas pressure.
