The ticking noise is the ignigtor. If the gas tank is full, and the regulator is on, then try lighting with a match or fire of some sort. Be careful of the spark-er! If it lights, then the spark needs to be adjusted so it catches the gas better. If it doesn't lite, then the hole for the pilot is plugged. An outside heater is common for a spider or other creature to make this his home. You need to clean it out. Compressed air even another flame may do it. if not It needs to be removed and cleaned out. If you can see the little hole, trey poking a thin piece of wire into it, it may get it.

crappy pilot flame (not properly heating the thermocouple), bad thermocouple, thermocouple loose where it screws into the pilot safety valve, bad safety valve magnet.
One or more of those is the problem.
Oh...there is also a saftey switch...in case it tips over. It will also cause the pilot to not stay lit (if the switch or wires that go to i 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.
