Question about Mr. Heater Mr Heater Portable Buddy Propane Heater
Just got a Big Buddy heater. Took it home and fired it up. Seemed to work pretty good. took it out a couple of hours later and attempted to fire it up agian, but the gas knob would not go past Pilot, seems to be locked in that position. WTF is wrong with this thing!?!
Unfortunately, Mr. Heater does a very poor job of writing user manuals, I didn’t even know my unit had a quick connect until I saw it on the side of the box. As it turns out, the spring loaded fuel **** has three positions; full up for safety lock, fully depressed to select/ignite the pilot, and half depressed to select the heat levels. I guess it was just dumb luck that I managed to get it to work the first time since there is nothing in the manual about this. Since I discovered the third position (sheerly by accident) I have not had any more problems.
