Patio heater will not stay lit

Our Ace Trading SRPH02 patio heater pilot light will ignite, but it will not stay lit. When last working, it would stay lit for about 5 minutes before turning off. Now, it will not turn on at all.

    same problem

    Same problem, Pilot works well but will not light main after waiting 30 - 60 seconds and releasing the button. Took it apart and blew compressed air thru hose and valve. Air seemed to travel in only one direction. Does the valve have some type of gate that opens up once its warm enough to stay lit?

SOURCE: Patio Heater pilot lights won't stay lit

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)

The pilot light has to heat up the thermocouple. Is the thermocouple in the flame? If so, the them. could be bad. Replace

Why won't my patio heater light


The thermocouple has to be in contact with the flame at all times when pilot is lit, this heats up and sends mill-volts back to the safety valve to keep the gas on, if not it won't let the gas through, otherwise you need to clean the pilot or replace the thermocouple if everything else is ok..

I have a Kirkland patio heater model # PTH-106SS-3G the pilot will not stay lit. Do I need to replace the whole pilot assembly


Hi, If the pilot light goes out when you turn the gas knob to full power on lighting them the most likely cause will be a worn thermocouple, these usually last between 2 years up to 6 years. Found this site very helpful, patio heater problem solving. They have a few solutions to checking patio heaters.

Frontgate patio heater, serial number 01A02 0023562, model number SRPH02, cust number SHCDPH, pilot light won't light (checked gas tank already)


First check that you are getting a spark, if not check lead and ignitor. If getting a spark make sure that there are no leaks, to do a gas leakage test see Patio heater problem solving. Next check the tilt switch if fitted, just short it out by joining up the two leads. If OK look for any debris/insects around the pilot and clean. A worn thermocouple will turn the gas off, these can last anywhere for 2 years up to 6 years but will at some point need replacing.

Pilot light on my Charmglow SRPH02 patio heater will not stay light in order ot light the burner. I have tried all of your suggestions in the manual except replacing the Thermocouple. What is that? I...


The themal couple is probably the culprit. You will see one end of it hanging into the pilot. The pilot heats that end creating a small electric current that allows gas valve to operate. There is a small copper line from the tip near pilot other end goes into gas valve. You can buy universal replacement kits. Usually around $15.00. RV parts store good place to look.

Patio heater ignites and stays lit with pilot. Then goes out.


Press and hold for 60 seconds and then it should stay lit (this is a safty feature on most models!)

Outdoor patio heater won't stay lit


I'm told by Charmglow that the problem is the Thermocouple. iHowever,it took me several calls to get someone to admit this. They are sending a new thermocoupler. My heater is less than a year old and under warranty--but it's a shame things like this happen.

Originally I was told it could'nt be the thermocoupler as they normally last at least 5 years.

Try it--as it may solve your problem as well.
