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)

Well, I just went out this morning and worked on the heater after it would not light last night. Turns out that a spider or moth set up camp in the pilot light intake housing and plugged up the two small mixer holes that pull in air for the pilot light. This would explain the 'yellow-flame'. I took a punch awl and some compressed air and cleaned out the hole, then re-installed the cover and knob. Lastly, I turned and depressed the knob and the pilot light ignited almost instantly, stayed on when I let the knob up, and the heater turned on normally after that. Good luck, I hope this helps.

Try a little longer, sometimes it takes a full minute to heat the thermocouple. Check and make sure thermocouple is in flame. If all this is ok. then your going to have to change the valve.

I have an endless summer patio heater the pilot lights but the does not stay on when you turn the knob to start the heater. Got it on once but then the flame blew out and could not start again


You need to replace the Thermocouple. Endless Summer Patio Heaters are manufactured by Uniflame, which is owned by Blue Rhino. You can order the Thermocouple direct ly from either company. Just make sure you have your Model Number handy.

How di i light the pilot light


Be sure that the gas line to the heater is ON.

Looking at the Control Knob on top of the heater, you note that he knob has 3- positions: OFF, Pilot, ON.

Turn the control knob to the Pilot position and push down on it. If it does not go all the way in and your do not feel strong pressure pushing back at you, it is not directly in the pilot position. (Reposition the knob slightly and try again). Once You're sure the knob is directly in the pilot position and the knob is depressed, continue to hold it in and press the Ignitor button next to it. You will hear a loud click. If possible, watch the pilot assembly inside the heater when you do this. That way you can see if the pilot lit the first time. If not repeat, pushing the ignitor.

If the gas line had been turned off to the heater, the pilot may not light the first couple of tries, due to air being in the gas line. If that is the case, hold the control knob in until you smell gas, let off, wait 5 minutes and repeat the lighting sequence.

Once the pilot does light, continue to hold the control knob in for 1 minute. This will allow the Thermocouple to heat up completely. Ease off the control knob and the pilot should remain lit. If it does, turn the control knob to ON and the burner will light.

Now you're ready to set the temperature or comfort level. You do this by raising or lowering the flame height. The higher the flames, the more heat it puts out. The lower the flames, the less heat it puts out. The stripe on the knob represents the flame heights - Narrow stripe, lowest setting, widest strip, highest setting. Or your specific model may simply say Low, Medium, High.

If you do not have the Owners Manual for this heater go to http://www.desatech.com/
click on Wall Heaters and enter the Model Number of your heater. You can then download and print the Owners Manual.

Hope this helped to get you up and runnig.

Pilot turns on but when I switch to turn it on,


When you light the pilot, are you holding it down for 30-60 seconds. When you release the pilot button, does the pilot flame stay lit? Or does it only go out when you turn the knob to on position. Make sure the pilot flame is heating the end of the thermocouple and that it's a strong blue flame, not a lazy yellow pilot flame. Make sure the tip of the thermocouple is not burn't off, which usually happens with lazy yellow pilot flames. Replace thermocouple is nothing else works.

Push knob in and lights fine wont stay lit after started goes out when knob comes out.


Most likely the regulator is bad. The second culprit could be the thermocouple.

I go thru the process of lighting the pilot light following the directions exactly, but as soon as I let the pilot light switch pop out so that I can turn it to the left to light the heater the flame goes...


The system works off of a thermocouple that is heated by the pilot. The thermocouple creates millivolts that magnetize a head behind the control knob. When you push in the knob the magnetized head behind the knob holds the gas valve open. So obviously the head is not being magnetized. First make sure that the pilot is not plugged and the flame is large enough to heat the thermocouple. Also sometimes you may need to hold the knob for several minutes before the pilot will stay on. Also patio heaters have a safety feature that will cut the millivolt circuit if the heater falls over. It is possible that this safety device is tripped or defective causing the pilot to not stay lit. Also check for any loose wires on the millivolt system.

You have to hold the button down for 30 seconds at least before turning the knob to ON. If you are doing this and it still goes out after you let up on the knob, then it needs a new flame sensor, or thermocouple. Same thing different names.

Lighting a glo warm heater


Is this a new heater or have you had it awhile? If new, yuo may have air in the line that will need to be bled out. The heater has a gas valve with a pilot setting on it. Make sure the gas is turned on. Turn the knob to the pilot setting and depress the handle. Holding it down and at the same time, press down on the red button that sparks. You may have to repeat this a few times. Once the pilot lights, continue to hold down on the pilot knob for about 30 seconds. When uou release the knob, the flame should stay o. If it does not, replace the thermocouple. Once the pilot flame is steady, turn the gas valve knob to on.
