My brand new patio heater wont turn on


To get your patio heater to light first check the tank has plenty of LPG/gas and the regulator is turned to on. Next turn the gas control knob to pilot (on some heaters this is a red line on others it has a spark symbol) and press in - hold for at least 30 secs. Press the piezo ignitor several times and continue to hold for another 60 secs. Gently ease off the pilot to release and turn to full power. You should hear the gas jet come on. If there is air in the pipes you might have to repeat. Fould this site very useful patio heater top repair tips.

My 2 year old (rusted and looking like a 10 year old) Pilot goes on lights the heater, burns for about 2 minutes and goes out. I tried another regulator, same problem. Gas tank is full. The pilot light...


Heaters that have rusted are tin plated or chrome finish, it can be hard to get a stainless steel heaters since some traders sell heaters as stainless steel but don't tell you the burner is made of tin. If you get a new heater just ask the question, is the burner tin or stainless steel? The problem with a burner that goes out can be a simple as changing the thermocouple, these are consumable and last between 2 to 5 years depending on use and storage. But if you have a yellow tipping this is not good, this can be caused by wrong fuel mix or faulty gas valve and is not an easy fix. Found this site very useful patio heater problem solving. Lots of info.

I have a Kirkland patio heater model # PTH-106SS-3G the pilot will not stay lit. Do I need to replace the whole pilot assembly


Hi, If the pilot light goes out when you turn the gas knob to full power on lighting them the most likely cause will be a worn thermocouple, these usually last between 2 years up to 6 years. Found this site very helpful, patio heater problem solving. They have a few solutions to checking patio heaters.

Frontgate patio heater, serial number 01A02 0023562, model number SRPH02, cust number SHCDPH, pilot light won't light (checked gas tank already)


First check that you are getting a spark, if not check lead and ignitor. If getting a spark make sure that there are no leaks, to do a gas leakage test see Patio heater problem solving. Next check the tilt switch if fitted, just short it out by joining up the two leads. If OK look for any debris/insects around the pilot and clean. A worn thermocouple will turn the gas off, these can last anywhere for 2 years up to 6 years but will at some point need replacing.

All Pro patio heater modle SPC54PHW, PHB, PHT, PHS. Pilot will not light and burner will not light.I installed a new regulatoe, propane tank is full. Took the gas pipes apart from bottom to top and no...


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!

All of a sudden my patio heater will not stay lit.


Describe the pilot. Is it a strong blue flame or lazy yellow? Is the thermocouple getting red hot by the pilot flame? I'm wondering if the pilot is impinging enough on the thermocouple to keep it lit. It may be dirty, so try blowing out the pilot orifice with a can of compressed air and see if that helps. Also make sure the thermocouple tip is not burn't. If you feel the tip and it feels jagged, then replace it. Hope that helps. Douglas
