ok, your unit must be propane. look on the back where the propane line feeds the nozzle. there should be a very small copper line with two spade connectors on it. this is your millivolt generator line. with a flame at the nozzle the generator makes a very small electrical current which feeds to the main valve and keeps it open. take a piece of wire and jumper these two spade connections together and try lighting the unit again. if it stays on, the hi limit is shot. you can get by with the connections jumped out, you just don't have the safety margin if it were connected. IF with the spade connections jumped out the unit still shuts off, the generator tube needs to be changed.

It sound like the pivot inside the regulator is damaged. I think that you will need to replace the regulator.

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.

No propane comes thourgh pilot on mr buddy heater


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.
