Endless Summer Patio Heaters won't stay lit

I have two patio heaters.  My table top (Model Number GWT501A - Serial #0506000433) lits up, but once you let go of the dial to set the temperature if turns off.

 

My other patio heater won't start (Model #153100 - Serial #0608001324).

 

New propane tanks.  Used an air compressor to blow out all dust and bugs.

Hi ColdinSF,

You need to remove the covers from the unit and blow out the gas lines with compressed air. If you can remove the gas lines blow out the lines and what they connect to like the pilot light and main feed line to the burner. Usually they gunk up with use and just need to be blown out with compressed air to clear the lines again. Maybe you have some dirt or foreign object from your gas tank which has clogged the line. Also check the igniter electric lines as well and make sure everything is connected properly. Especially make sure you tighten the gas lines you remove. Hope this helps.

Regards
Bryan

Had the same problem with my table top heater, and I followed solemna13au's advice. I removed the propane source, opened up the gas valve and ran compressed air in from the propane input connection. I blasted it a 1/2 dozen times with the air, reconnected my propane, and everything works properly now.

Pilot light won't stay lit when I let go of the igniter knob. Flame is yellow and long.


Sounds like the Thermocouple has failed and needs to be replaced. It's not difficult to do. But, finding the part may be. Blue Rhino, is the manufacturer for Endless Summer Patio Heaters, so start there.

I have an endless summer patio heater the pilot lights but the does not stay on when you turn the knob to start the heater. Got it on once but then the flame blew out and could not start again


You need to replace the Thermocouple. Endless Summer Patio Heaters are manufactured by Uniflame, which is owned by Blue Rhino. You can order the Thermocouple direct ly from either company. Just make sure you have your Model Number handy.

Patio Heater won't stay lit?


The first possibility is a bad regulator, easy and cheap to replace. The second possibility is a bad thermocouple, and the third possibility is a blockage in the pilot assembly. The last two problems require you to take the head apart to replace the thermocouple or clear the blockage. If you are not comfortable taking the head apart, hire someone to do it.

Patio heater ignites and stays lit with pilot. Then goes out.


Press and hold for 60 seconds and then it should stay lit (this is a safty feature on most models!)

Outdoor patio heater won't stay lit


I'm told by Charmglow that the problem is the Thermocouple. iHowever,it took me several calls to get someone to admit this. They are sending a new thermocoupler. My heater is less than a year old and under warranty--but it's a shame things like this happen.

Originally I was told it could'nt be the thermocoupler as they normally last at least 5 years.

Try it--as it may solve your problem as well.

IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE SOME KIND OF BURNER PROBLEM. YOU ARE USING THE RIGHT KIND OF GAS =L..P. OR PROPANE? ALSO, SOMETIMES A LEAK IN THE GAS SYSTEM WILL CAUSE SIMILAR PROBLEMS. YOU CAN CHECK THIS WITH THE OLD SOAP BUBBLE SOLUTION ON THE FITTINGS TECHNIQUE.
