Kirkland outdoor heater will not stay lit

The propane tank seems to be full, is open and I can get the pilot to light. But, when I stop depressing the button to turn it on it will not stay lit unless I keep the button depressed even fully "on".

The thermocouple is bad. That is the part right next to the pilot light that sense's the flame and hold the gas valve open to the pilot. Take the old thermocouple off and go to hard ware store and get a 18" one of what ever length you need and replace. 5 dollar part.

Check your propane tanks (are they full?), make sure the valve is on, then check to make sure gas is making its way to the hot water tank, if the pilot lights but won't stay lit your flame sensor is faulty.

If your propane tank has an OPD valve.. in other words if when the tank is disconnected and you open the tank valve and no gas escapes..it's an OPD valve..these are pretty much standard especially on the exchangeable tanks.

The problem sometimes is at the connection hose..it too of course must be an OPD connector to depress the internal ring on the tank valve before any gas will come out.

Chances are the knurled knob is either cross threading or is cracked..and won't snug up enough to depress that internal ring on the tank valve. Or you have miss matched components.. unlikely if you bought genuine replacement parts.

The All Pro Heater you have requires a specific part (fitting) to be added when using a universal regulator (Part number 6122) which is a 3/8 connector male.

This of course is assuming you hear no gas hissing.. cannot light it manually..

Sounds simple..but I have seen this problem on outdoor BB'Q's many times.. cracked knob on the connector hose and a few times simply backing it off and putting it back on.. tight enough to depress that ring..

Best of luck!

Typically there is a safety device directly above the pilot light that must be up to temp for the gas to flow. You did not specify if the pilot is lit. If not, hold the lighter at the pilot light while depressing the button for one minute. This allows the sensor to warm to operating temp, thus allowing gas flow. Once pilot is lit adjust the temperature accordingly.

It sounds like a thermocouple has gone bad. this is a very common problem with gas powered things ie; water heaters, furnaces, hot tubs. The telltale sign is when you release the pilot light button it won't stay lit. This is a safety feature and is relatively inexpensive and easy to repair.

Torpedo heater wont stay lit.


Do you have the serial number or the manufacture date? There are some design changes and I would need to know the year of manufacture to assist accurately. Usually it is a relay or the thermocouple connection that will affect the unit staying lit.

Propane heater wont work


I'm not sure about that model, but I think you have to hold that button down for a minute or more to "prime" it.

I have a different model coleman propane heater that sits on the 20# tank. Mine is probably getting rusty, last time I used it I had to hold that button down for a long time.

I'm looking for a new heater now myself, as mine won't stay lit outdoors in much wind.
