If the pilot will not light get a q-tip and alcohol and remove the wire grill and be sure the cotton doesn't come off the end of the stick wet the cotton with the alcohol and twist it and push it down into the pilot tube 2 full inches. Let the alcohol soak for 30 seconds and while twisting pull the q-tip out. Try this until the pilot lights.

When commected to 20 lbs tank the pilot light does not stay on; however, when connected to a 1 lb propane bottle everything works propertly. I have replaced the fuel filter, I have tried using different...


The new 20lb LPG cylinders now have what called an OPD Valve. Reconnect to a 20lb cylinder and turn the tank valve on very very slowly, This will help prevent the OPD Valve from locking up the heater's regulator. Your 1lb cylinder is not required to have this OPD Valve.

By the way, this happens quite frequently with LP Gas Portable Grills.

Put a new tank on and no gas coming through to the ignition. Was stored in the garge and got dusty, if plugged how do you clean or other possible issues


You will have to clean (possibly with a fine wire) the gas line orifice due to spider web blockage or rust. Not a big job, just start from the full tank and test the hose to see if gas blows through it. Then go to the next component, check on down the path. You'll find something.

Pilot after a few minutes of operation flutters and slowly goes out. lil Buddy Heater


The thermocouple is bad or not aligned properly. It is the metal bar in front of the pilot light. This bar senses the heat put off by the pilot light. If it does not get hot it will not allow the gas to flow. You either need to align it so that it is in front of the pilot light and receives enough heat to allow the gas valve to operate or possibly the thermocouple has gone bad and needs replacing.

Stays lit for 25 minutes and shuts off


How large and sealed of an area are you using it in? I ask because those units have a low oxygen sensor which will shut it down if there is not enough oxygen in the space.(kinda prevents that pesky suffocation thing). Otherwise if using it in larger cold spaces, the issue is can be from the smaller tanks. As mentioned above, a larger tank can solve this, because these units have a fairly good input rate, which will cause the smaller tanks to freeze, and lower the propane temperature and evaporation rate, basically runs out of gas until the tank warms back up.
