The mr heater series units have a millivolt generator connected to a very small sensitive electromagnet in the valve body. inside the generator is a small insulated wire connected to the very tip of the generator. that and the outside copper tube forms the j-k junction. at the other end, the part that goes into the valve is a silver button and a gland nut. this forms the other part of the electric circuit. the inside of the valve has a spring and an iron slug with a rubber pad. the slug gets sucked into the electromagnet when the magnet is operating and holds the pad off its seat allowing propane to go through the regulator and valve. change out your generator and I'm sure your problems will be solved. mr heater has a web site.
