Wall heater not working properly--sputtering blue flame

My 30,000 btu propane wall mounted heater was working fine till yesterday, when it started sputtering, and having a blue flame on the tiles. The last tile seems like it does not even want to light up, and just puffs off and on. I took off the long tube at the bottom, and the little holes are all opened for the gas to get through. I also used air to blow the tube clean, but did not find any blockages there.
Any suggestions?? Thanks in advance for any advice I can get on this. I also tried another full 20 lb. propane tank, but with the same results.

Ok, either your fuel pressure is too low or too high.. When you light the unit, Light it in low, then turn it up slowly Just crack open your tank valve.about1/4 turn. The air in the tubes has to be displaced with gas before you get a good flame

Hi, I have a sunrise 2001 outdoor heater. It was given to me and is missing the tube that goes from the propane hook up - up to the flame. How and where do I get this part?


You would need to contact the maker of the product. This website doesn't sell parts or have any means of looking them up in this kind of product.
