Bernzomatic patio heater keeps shutting off.

Propane patio heater fires up no problem, then shuts off sporadically after 5-10 minutes each time. It is a fairly new model.

Hi Scott,

this is clear thermostat issue. The part is no longer able to sustain the heat and the heat coil indicator may also be damaged as it is the part telling the thermostat if the heater is too hot and it had to shut down or it is still cold so it has to heat up more.

Opening the unit is an option if you have the service manual. but this involves propane gas which is flamable and very dangerous if it is leaked. Have it checked by your dealer or an authorized technician.

hope this helps.

regards,

voodoo

What is the part number for the control knob for the Bernzomatic Patio Heater model # PH3250N?


Bernzomatic does not provide nor sell replacement parts for their products - they consider them disposable.
If the plastic knob is the only piece you need, Amazon sells a few replacement knobs for patio heaters. I searched Amazon with the terms:

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.

My patio heater will light and run for about three to five minutes then shuts off, I can wait a few minutes and relight and it will do the same thing.


Hi, This can be caused by using butane during cold nights. Butane will start to freeze on cold nights but propane will work up to -6 . If already using propane then the most likely problem will be a worn thermocouple, these are consumable items. Found this site very useful, patio heaters problem solving.
