There is a small (usually ) aluminum slide door. You need to air out the immediately area of any possible gas, then turn the knob on the regulater to pilot, hold the button down for a minute or so then use a long match to light the pilot light inside that little door. Hold lit matches up to the little tube until it lights. Then turn knob to temp.
Have you checked the fuse? Do you have power to the switch? Do you have power from switch to regulater? If so than you need to replace window regulater. Of you can hear the window regulater working but the windows isn't moving it could be as simple as some plastic clips. If so remember to clean and lube the tracks.
Are they both ran off of the same regulator? Is the vent open on the regulator? Do you have a full tank of propane or bottle?. Acts like you are running out of gas. Is there any other appliance that use the same gas supply and are they working? Just asking ? so maybe you can narrow down what the cause is..... Hard to tell with out putting a manometer to check gas pressure. Should be 11 to 14" of water column to gas valve and 10 to 11"WC manifold pressure. Hope this helps.
Too much gas pressure. Are you sure that this is a LP heater and not a Natural gas heater? Is the regulator you have rated under 1/2 pound pressure? Try to throttle down the shutoff on the tank to see if pilot gets better. If so, you have a pressure issue. Gas you adjust the pilot gas valve?
if you don't have a 3/4 line from the meter with 2lbs and a regulater on it the 3/4 line is for volume and the regulater if for surging and making sure it doen's go below the volume of gas needed. if you have this you will have no problem, if you don't you have a problem good luck
Not at all uncommon. New heaters have to glaze over the file tile in the burner chamber and will often smoke and smell during the first week or so of operation.
Using a mirror, check to see that your flames are about 4" proud of the burner tubes when running. As long as they are and the color is a nice blue with little to no yellow/orange color, the heater is fine.
First of all make sure your battery is in good condition, and then get a voltmeter attached to battery, before start & after to confirm what your inside gauge is telling you is correct. Check and clean all connections to & from battery. Otherwise it's pointing back at regulator again.
i would look into the valve/regulater at which you connected the gas line, off to the side or somewhere on the regulater itself there should be a shut off for the oven control, simply flick to open positon and you should start right up. it would shut off gas to oven but allow burners to light.
