SOURCE: I have an RTA International

Gas Valves are not meant to be repaired only replaced. So I would have them replace the part and have them warranty there work. If the heater is very old and the replacement part is going to be half the cost of a new one You might want to put that Money on a new one and get a New manufactures warranty in the deal. Just another point of view....... Hope this helps

Patio heater goes out


If your patio heater goes out when you turn on the pilot and let go, this is usually a worn thermocouple. They last between 1 year (if you are unlucky) up to 6 years and are a consumable item. Found this site very useful patio heater problem solving.

Patio heater phs won't ignite


Hi, First check if you have a full tank and that the pipes are clear of any insects, water or debris. Next see if you have a spark where the pilot is, if you can hear the piezo clicking but cannot see a spark then check the lead. Sometimes the lead can get loose and short out lower down and prevent the spark from reaching the pilot. You may need to take the lead out to fully check. If you have a spark and gas is reaching the pilot then check the tilt switch, if faulty it can turn the gas valve off. To check you can just short out the tilt switch, found this site very useful patio heater problem solving.

I have a giordano heater that won't light. There is a narrow pipe that diverts gas to the igniter spark. The pipe is capped by a small metal regulator with what looks like a very small hole in it to...


Never drill or try to make the pilot hole larger, this will cause a large flame that cannot be controlled. Check the main parts, first see if you have a spark, next check for leaks, to see how to do a leakage test see patio heater problem solving page. If no leak try changing the thermocouple, these will wear out and can last up to 6 years. Also check the electromagnetic valve that sits inside the gas control valve and if fitted check the tilt switch works. The tilt switch can be shorted out to see if it works.

I have afrontgate propane patio heater and the pilot lights but when I try to put it into position to warm it goes out and will not stay lite.


Most common problem is a worn thermocouple, this will cause the pilot to light but go out when turned to full. There can be other issues but start by changing the thermcouple as these generally last between 2 to 6 years. If it still has problems check the tilt switch by shorting it out, found this site very useful, patio heater problem solving.

Frontgate patio heater, serial number 01A02 0023562, model number SRPH02, cust number SHCDPH, pilot light won't light (checked gas tank already)


First check that you are getting a spark, if not check lead and ignitor. If getting a spark make sure that there are no leaks, to do a gas leakage test see Patio heater problem solving. Next check the tilt switch if fitted, just short it out by joining up the two leads. If OK look for any debris/insects around the pilot and clean. A worn thermocouple will turn the gas off, these can last anywhere for 2 years up to 6 years but will at some point need replacing.

I can light the pilot light, but there is no gas flow to the heating element, thus heater will not light. Looking to replace control value, but can't locate one online. Where can I go to order new...


Gas control valve are very robust and will last last for years. If the pilot is not lighting the first thing is to check the fuel line from the cylinder up. Always run a leakage test as this will cause problems if you have a steel pipe that runs inside the pole - these can get loose and gas leaks from the locking nut. Use some plumbers tape/seal, for info on problem solving and leakage test see patio heater guide. Also check your tilt switch and try shorting it out before changing the gas valve.
