We bought a big buddy 2 days ago and now it wont work.


Push red button down to start, maybe 3 times, then push red button down HALF way down then turn to low.
IT COULD BE YOUR PROPANE TANK, got a new one but had problems, so I left it on all night and it lit in the morning.
BUT when I got it filled the next time the man said the stem in the tank might need to take it outside and bang the tank several times, stem in the top gets stuck a lot he said.
But last is to take the tank outside and use a flat head screwdriver and turn the screw? on the side where the hose would be connected to let some out.

My 2 year old (rusted and looking like a 10 year old) Pilot goes on lights the heater, burns for about 2 minutes and goes out. I tried another regulator, same problem. Gas tank is full. The pilot light...


Heaters that have rusted are tin plated or chrome finish, it can be hard to get a stainless steel heaters since some traders sell heaters as stainless steel but don't tell you the burner is made of tin. If you get a new heater just ask the question, is the burner tin or stainless steel? The problem with a burner that goes out can be a simple as changing the thermocouple, these are consumable and last between 2 to 5 years depending on use and storage. But if you have a yellow tipping this is not good, this can be caused by wrong fuel mix or faulty gas valve and is not an easy fix. Found this site very useful patio heater problem solving. Lots of info.

Turn the LP Tank Valve OFF and disconnect the heater from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the heater to the tank. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion slow). Nor light the heater and turn it to high. Allow it to burn on high for several minutes, before tuning it to low. If this solved the problem, the OPD tank valve was shooting to much pressure to the heater regulator. Turning it on slowly, helps alleviate that problem.

My heater is not getting hot i can not tell if their is a pilot light or a reset button i don know what to do with the heater it is very different how can i heat my water heater


Reliance makes gas and electric water heaters.
http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/

Best way to start is to look at label on side of tank.
Label has serial number, model number, plus it will say if heater is gas or electric.
Reliance water heater age is shown in serial number: first digit is letter, second two digits are numbers: for example numbers 02 would be the year 2002.
If water heater is 8-12 years old, it might be time to consider new tank.

Gas water heater has 3 inch metal flue pipe coming out of top of tank.
Gas pilot is probably off.
Relight pilot light: Most gas water heaters today have instructions on side of tank just above gas valve that say how to relight pilot light. Instructions vary by model.
If you have gas water heater that is older, it might be easier to call a plumber.

Electric water heater has panels on front.
Open top panel and push in red reset button.
If you have electric water heater of any age, you can usually fix it yourself same day:

Tank-top propane unit won't stay lit


I had to replace the regulator. If you have a propane appliance shop near you, you can probably just get the nipple that goes into the bottle. It's aboit 3/16" diameter, 3/4" long and may have a 6 sided end up inside the screw on cap of the regulator.
