    Heat stays lite aslong as Hold the botton in. I am thinking about by passing the sensor against the back plate. Also , my thermo coupler is not mounted solid. It can be pushed in and pulled out. I looked at a new model and that coupler is solid. I am going to try to find parts.

I contacted ReddyParts.com and talked with their support department (866-883-9312). They instantly stated "your thermal coupler is bad". They had 1 in stock for 19.99 + shipping. I ordered it and plan to have it installed and tested by next weekend. The model I have is Reddy Heater Propane 35k to 55k (RLP55V).

I have a PRO100 Reddy Heater would not stay lit when you release the ignite button. I replaced the thermocouple and it did nothing. What else could be the problem besides the valve?


I had the same problem. Heater was propane with a long hose for movement.

I put the heater on my garage work bench and the thermocouple tested okay.
Tried to restart and it ran like a champ. Reassembled bottom panel, retested great.
When I set it on the floor, it went out! Hmmmm.

Restarted back on the benck. Great. No good on floor....Very cold (28 F) in the garage.

Think the propane might be going liquid in the hose...when heater hose has a "drip loop"
it works fine.

Maybe this is nuts, but it works keeping the heater up a bit on a STABLE surface.

Forced air propane heater won't stay lit


two items come into play here - 1) the hot surface cutout and 2) the flame detect Cd cell. Check alignment of the Cd cell or just replace it. The hot surface cutout has two terminals that plug into the two tabs on the millivolt generator.
