Question about Heating & Cooling
I have a coleman propane heater model5080a751 and it will not work. the propane tank is full. there is a little flame when you push the ignitor button but as soon as you let go it seems like the propane stops flowing. it just wont get to the full flame like it is suppose to. it was working for about ten minutes and then it just shut off,almost like there is a problem with the propane staying flowing. any ideas?
Sounds like a dirty pilot orfice. Or you may need to replace the thermocouple. The thermocouple generates voltage from the heat of the pilot and energizes a magnet in the gas valve and when you release the button it should stay on. Once the pilot is established, the main burner should work...There is no primer function....cheers.

I'm not sure about that model, but I think you have to hold that button down for a minute or more to "prime" it.
I have a different model coleman propane heater that sits on the 20# tank. Mine is probably getting rusty, last time I used it I had to hold that button down for a long time.
I'm looking for a new heater now myself, as mine won't stay lit outdoors in much wind.
