Question about Coleman 5040-751 BackHome Open Flame Patio Heater

Patio Heater SRPH02 will not light in cold weather

With a newly filled propane tank, in cold weather, the propane seems not to be traveling up the vertical feed pipe to the burner. Displacing the cold air in the pipe seems to be an issue. Pre-heating the body of the unit with high powered heat lamps will, after much time heat the air in the pipe and the propane will slowly flow upward to be ignited.
As the heater's intent is to allow patio use in cold weather, this defeats the purpose. As the ambient temperature rises, the heater lights much more easily.
How can I get the heater to work more easily in the colder weather I purchased it for?

You may need someone to come in and adjust your pressure regulator that is inline to heater this is what controls the output of propane and should only be adjusted by a pro

Hear sound after few minutes and then shuts down


Check the gas cylinder is full and using propane (butane is not good in very cold weather). Make sure there are no leaks, to do a leakage test see patio heater problem solving. If all OK the most likely cause will be a worn thermocouple, this can cause the burner to turn off.

Model JDS032 Tabe top Heater. No gas flow


Start with the cylinder, make sure you have plenty of fuel, if down to the last bit it can slow right down. Make sure it's propane (butane will not work in cold weather) and check for leaks. Found this site very useful patio heater problem solving, they have lots of help pages.

Frontgate patio heater, serial number 01A02 0023562, model number SRPH02, cust number SHCDPH, pilot light won't light (checked gas tank already)


First check that you are getting a spark, if not check lead and ignitor. If getting a spark make sure that there are no leaks, to do a gas leakage test see Patio heater problem solving. Next check the tilt switch if fitted, just short it out by joining up the two leads. If OK look for any debris/insects around the pilot and clean. A worn thermocouple will turn the gas off, these can last anywhere for 2 years up to 6 years but will at some point need replacing.

Burner on Charmglow patio heater will not stay on.


believe it or not, the propane tank may be too full. The vapor space is taken up and you have very little vapor. Run some warm water over the tank. The garden hose may be enough but if you get no frost line the water will need to be warmer. The warm water causes the liquid fuel to turn into vapor. Do not use boiling hot water. Another thing is oening the valve. Most propane tanks have safety valves. If the gas escapes faster than a normal rate, the valve closes. Open the valve slowlyand lt it burn for about 10 minutes before opening the valve further. It will get better as the fuel is used up and the vapor space in the tank increases. In real cold climates a heater blanket, sleeve is used tho keep the bottle warm. The vapor also creates the the needed pressure to move the gas through the system to the burners. Good Luck-Ned_
