Sounds as though your heater is a bit different than mune - I havwe no gas supply button, at least I don't think so. I just replaced my nozzle however at the recommedation of a recent contact to this site. It worked. The replacement packaging suggests annual replacement, so I think I was due - after ~12 years!

My 35000 btu will not stay lit. after i take my finger off the propane gas butten the flame goes off. what is wrong. this is a ready heater


I would venture to say that it is the thermocouple not picking up signal to keep the gas valve open. You can try cleaning the bulb end with steel wool and positioning it in the flame remember the hottest part of the flame is out on the end.

I have a propane reddi heater and I can't get it to stay on after I light it, it won't stay on. Is there something that needs to be cleaned or replaced


Generally speaking a propane heater stays lite because the pilot stays lite. The pilot flame touches a thermocouple which produces a current which keeps the main valve open. Pilot goes out or you have a bad thermocouple or the pilot is slightly clogged (reduced heat to thermocouple) or maybe the thermocouple is not touching the flame enough. Most times when a propane heater goes out the problem is somewhere in that neighborhood. Thermocouple - pilot. I have always had luck carefully taking those parts off, cleaning, and reassembling, but check the position of the thermocouple first. Looks like a small brass rod which sticks into the flame. This is a safety mechanism to prevent the flame being blown out and leaving the gas on. Good luck

Sounds like the thermocouple is not working or the flame is not hitting the thermocouple. It may take 30 seconds of flame or longer to keep it on. Check for a loose connection at the gas valve.

Either a 30# or 110# tank of propane will work. You might even get by for a short period of time using a gas grill tank, depending upon how cold it is outside.
