SOURCE: Pilot light will not stay on my provence gas

first thing to do is make sure you got gas? figure you know that so here we go.
where the gas comes out for the pilot flame. use a pipe cleaner and run it down in it about 2 or 3" .
sometimes a spider web will block the flow of gas and it's not enough to heat the probe that keeps the pilot flame lit. or the flame sensor is bad. it's rare to have the sensor go bad but it can. a can of air and blow it out good is always a good thing. Good luck. always be careful.......

SOURCE: Dayton 3VE59 Gas Utility/Portable Heater won't

Just repaired one of these, problem was that main gas valve was not opening, valve is controlled by a vacuum switch, vacuum is created as fan blows air down tube past bent up metal flap near front bottom of heater (slight low pressure zone created). If vacuum switch is miss adjusted it will not close when fan is running and no gas flows. this is easy to check as vacuum switch also has a pressure port on it. With gas disconnected, remove bottom cover, locate vacuum switch (it has a hose clear plastic hose connected to it, in opposite corner is another hose connection, attach a length of hose to it that you can blow lightly into. With heater plugged in and no gas connected (USE CAUTION OF WIRE!!!), turn heater on you should hear after a few seconds the ignition and then a loud click as the gas valve opens, if no click blow lightly into end of your added tube, if you now hear a click the gas valve just opened. if you stop blowing you might hear the gas valve click again as it re-closes. If this is the case the vacuum switch needs to be adjusted slightly. THIS switch is hear for your safety, Adjust at your own risk!!! This can be done with a screw drive in the top, rotate screw slightly while checking if the fan alone causes enough vacuum to make the switch work. DO NOT over adjust. check safety operation before hooking up gas by placing a piece of cardboard or wood over the air intake and the exhaust to block airflow, if the air flow is blocked you should hear the gas valve drop out and reconnect as air flow is reestablished. Hope this helps

SOURCE: our delonghi portable gas heater's

The problem you described can be caused by 3- things. A dirty pilot, a failed thermocouple or thermopile or low gas pressure.

Cleaning the pilot with a can of compressed air with a straw nozzle (like to clean your computer with) will take car of the dirty pilot. The two other things, may require a service technician depending on if you's handy or not with tools and familiar with gas heating products and can get the necessary parts.. The low gas pressure situation is definitely a job for a pro.

New burners need to be run for a bit to burn off factory oils and the like for a bit (making sure of good ventilation in the house first). If this has been done and your smoke detectors are also carbon monoxide detectors turn the unit off and call a service tech before continuing use.

I recently bought a Provence Calor Gas Stove for the house. The portable heater type. It is brand new but every time we switch it on, all of the smoke detectors in the house go off. Whats up with that?

Propane heater wont stay running


is the sensor for the thermocouple located in the right spot in the flame,remove it and if you have access to a propane torch,heat the end till its red hot and leave it connected to the gas valve,then start the unit and this will tell you if the sensor is properly positioned in the pilot flame on the unit itself,if not you could have a defective new thermocouple or another safety device keeping it from staying lit or the gas valve is faulty
