Question about Blue Rhino Uniflame Patio Heater Stainless Steel Commercial Triple Dome
I can't get gas to flow up to the burner, much less the pilot, is this a saftey feature that is malfunctioning?
Your regulator has a thermocouple that senses the pilot before allowing the valve to open. It is sensitive to the miniscule amount of energy that is produced from the flame. Your thermocouple is bad or covered in soot and needs replacement/cleaning/adjustment.
Locate the thermocouple, and sometimes it can be cleaned with fine sandpaper. If it is not in the line of the pilot flame, make an adjustment. You cannot keep the pilot lit if the thermocouple does not sense the flame. It will go out when you release the button.
Clean or replace the thermocouple to fix.

Please be careful
when converting appliances form natural gas to propane. Depending on the
equipment there are several changes that need to be made. You will at least
have to change burner orifices and convert or replace the gas valve. Some gas
valves are not convertible. What many people over look are changing the pilot
orifice and on some appliances like braising pans, griddles and char broilers
there is a runner tube orifice. The gas valve also needs to be adjusted to the
proper manifold pressure and pilot adjustments will be required. I recommend on Vulcan equipment that you
contact Hobart Service since they are factory trained on all Vulcan cooking equipment.
