Question about Stainless Patio Comfort Natural Gas Steel Patio Heater

Patio comfort heater won't light

My patio comfort natural gas heater will not light. The gas is on and pilot is on and pushed in for many minutes. When holding a match to the  pilot light it barely flickers the match flame and does not light. I cannot smell any gas either. My ng  bbq is also hooked up and works well. I've tried a fine wire in the pilot hole to clear any obstructions as well as blowing with compressed air. Any help would be appreciated...  Thankyou      ps the heater is one and a half years old

Sometimes you have to completely disassemble the pilot assembly to clear the blockage, the orifice for the pilot jet is very small and you can not get directly to it unless you take it apart. If this does not help, you may need a new valve.

My gas endless summer heater shuts the flame off abruptly after 5 minutes or so. why??


The first consumable part to fail on a gas patio heater is the thermcouple, these can last anywhere between 1 year to 6 years. When faulty it will cause the heater to shut off when turned on at pilot. Found this site very useful patio heater problem solving.

Flame stops suddenly after running for a while. Yes, there is fuel.


Check that there are no leaks, to do a leakage test see patio guide to problem solving. If OK then check the thermocouple, when worn out they will cause the pilot to switch off.

Pilot light wont ignite on patio heater


It may be that your cylinder is malfunctioning, cylinder has a leak, or the pilot is clogged. Please see steps below to troubleshoot. Note:Regular maintenance is critical to the successful operation of your patio heater.
  1. Is the cylinder valve closed? If so, open the cylinder valve but not fully.
  2. Check to see if you can light it manually. If the unit lights manually but not with igniter, service or replace igniter switch.
  3. Ensure that there is no air in the gas line. Open the gas line and bleed it (pressing control knob in) for not more than 1 - 2 minutes or until you smell gas.
  4. There may be a blockage in the orifice or pilot tube? Bugs and spiders get into the pilot assembly, venturi tube and burner ports causing the unit to either not light or poor performance.
  5. Is the regulator hose pinched or kinked?
  6. Cleaning the pilot assembly.
  7. If the piezo igniter won't spark to light the pilot, check the wiring to the igniter, It may simply have lost it's ground. Slide the wire off the igniter prong (looks like a thick needle) on the pilot assembly and then push it back on. That usually will reestablish the ground.
If you continue to have problems with the heater, contact Blue Rhino (the manufacturer) Customer Care 800-762-1142.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know.

Have a vent free lp wall mounted heater.40 lp tank with regulater. pilot light will light but only the tip of pilot light is flame.there is a space between pilot light and tube where lp comes out. does not...


Too much gas pressure. Are you sure that this is a LP heater and not a Natural gas heater? Is the regulator you have rated under 1/2 pound pressure? Try to throttle down the shutoff on the tank to see if pilot gets better. If so, you have a pressure issue. Gas you adjust the pilot gas valve?

Charmglow gas patio heater


Your thermocoupler seems at fault. The thermocoupler is that probe that sits in the pilot flame. It controls the main fuel valve. Make sure that probe is in the pilot flame, better at the tip of the flame and hold the button down for a minute or so after lighting the pilot. If pilot extinguishes, the coupler is faulty. If pilot stays on the heater should fire up when you let up on the pilot button.. Good luck

Patio heater won't lite


There is possibly a spider web or wad of web blocking the gas flow between the valve and pilot.Take the line off between the valve and pilot and blow it out with compressed air and it should fix the problem.
