Not getting any propain to my patio heater


First check the gas, connect the regulator to the cylinder but unclip the hose and do not light the heater. Turn the gas on for a second to see if the regulator is working OK. Next make sure there are no blockages in the pipes up to the burner. If all clear then vent the pipes to clear all air. If still not getting any gas the problem could be a faulty tilt switch cutting the gas supply or a worn thermocouple. Short out the tilt switch to test and if not fixed then change the thermocouple.

Can establish pilot flame but cannot get main flame on my jumbuck tall patio heater. everything switches off. is it the tilt switch? how do I fix this


The first thing to wear out is a thermocouple, these will cause the pilot to go out when you turn to full. To check if the tilt switch is working just short it out by joining the leads up. Found this site very useful in solutions to Patio Heater Problems.

I have an RTA International Patio Heater, Model 385.001 with a clogged pilot light valve. I need a way to fix the problem or a new replacement part. I have a commercial gas heating repair company working...


Gas Valves are not meant to be repaired only replaced. So I would have them replace the part and have them warranty there work. If the heater is very old and the replacement part is going to be half the cost of a new one You might want to put that Money on a new one and get a New manufactures warranty in the deal. Just another point of view....... Hope this helps

On my patio heater the pilot light will light but goes out as soon as I release it, even after holding it down a long time. I can't get it to stay on to light the heater.


Check that the pilot light is directed at the thermocouple, a copper 'tube' that heats up when the pilot light is lit. You should be able to see a copper coloured small tube that the pilot light is directed at - if the pilot flame is not heating that tube then the main burner will not light.

If the thermocouple is being heated correctly, then it could be a fault with the thermocouple itself (can be replaced) or the gas valve.

If the pilot flame is not heating the end of the thermocouple you should be able to adjust its position so that the pilot flame is directed at it more accurately

The heater you have is not sold by RTA INTERNATIONAL. We are the distributor for GARDENSUN patio heaters. From what you say, I would think you have a pressure problem or a bad thermocouple. Check all your fittings by spraying them with soapy water. Be sure you turn on your gas to check.

Check the tip of your thermocouple. Be sure the tip is tapered and not burned through on the tip. If it is, you need a new thermocouple.
