If the pilot will not light at all, then first check to make sure your propane cylinder is not empty. Second disconnect the tank and reconnect, but very slowly turn the tank valve back on and try relighting it again. Third, if the above two do not solve it, then get a can of compressed air (like you use to clean computer keyboards) and blow out the dirt/spiderweb from the pilot orifice, where the pilot flame normally lights. It may just be plugged/dirty. Douglas

The regulator covered with frost is the problem. It freezes the gas and the gas line up. But, usually this only occurs when it has been exposed to subfreezing (in the teens) temperature for a long period of time. The quick fix, is to soak a bath towel in hot water, ring it out and quickly wrap it around the regulator. Once it thaws, the gas will start flowing again and you can light the burner. Generally, once it's flowing and being used, it won't freeze up again, right a way. Most propane companies add ethanol to the propane in the winter, to help keep it from freezing in the lines and the regulator.

Hope this helped answer you question and provided, at least a quick fix solution.

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.
