Question about Williams 2509612 Ceramic Mid-Size Heater
My charmglow patio heater has been working great for all of last year...
but this week end it went out and would not light...the tank was still half full
but I changed it anyway...the pilot light will lite but as soon as I let off the knob it will go out...the pilot light is burning a very yellow flame that it has not done before...tapped on the regulator and the heater worked for about 2 minutes....help...I love my heater....
Kirk same problem pilot will light but as soon as I release the knob the flame goes out
This is caused by a blockage in the pilot.
Disassemble and clean the Pilot light assemble especially the venturi tube.
Completely disassemble the venturi tube, it has an insert where the gas line is connected and you cant get to it unless you disconnect the gas line.

Looks like the knob or the contacts are faulty.

Well, I just went out this morning and worked on the heater after it would not light last night. Turns out that a spider or moth set up camp in the pilot light intake housing and plugged up the two small mixer holes that pull in air for the pilot light. This would explain the 'yellow-flame'. I took a punch awl and some compressed air and cleaned out the hole, then re-installed the cover and knob. Lastly, I turned and depressed the knob and the pilot light ignited almost instantly, stayed on when I let the knob up, and the heater turned on normally after that. Good luck, I hope this helps.
