The burner needs to be cleaned at least once a year. Just upstream of the burner is a small mixing chamber where air is mixed with the gas. Cobb webs and dust collect in the chamber and the gas cannot get mixed properly. Just blow out the dirt and junk in ther and remember to clean any soot residue from the burner tip. and then relight. This should eliminate your problem of the burner going out.
Hope this helps.
believe it or not, the propane tank may be too full. The vapor space is taken up and you have very little vapor. Run some warm water over the tank. The garden hose may be enough but if you get no frost line the water will need to be warmer. The warm water causes the liquid fuel to turn into vapor. Do not use boiling hot water. Another thing is oening the valve. Most propane tanks have safety valves. If the gas escapes faster than a normal rate, the valve closes. Open the valve slowlyand lt it burn for about 10 minutes before opening the valve further. It will get better as the fuel is used up and the vapor space in the tank increases. In real cold climates a heater blanket, sleeve is used tho keep the bottle warm. The vapor also creates the the needed pressure to move the gas through the system to the burners. Good Luck-Ned_
I'm having the exact same issue as of Nov 2010 with my Charmglow Patio Heater. Only used it a few times and once I get the pilot light lite, It will not migrate over to the burn section of the themostat. Any suggestions?
There will be sufficient gas flow to light the pilot and get a flame prove, then the main burner lights, you will probably see the pilot flame reduce somewhat, and no longer fully surround the flame prove sensor.
When the unit is relighted, the complete sequence starts all over again.
Have the gas regulator checked and adjusted (if adjustable) or replaced by a qualified technician.
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.
