I am guessing that this is a propane model. If so, when it is sparking, can you hear any propane flowing at the pilot. It will sound like a light hiss. If not, either the pilot is plugged, caused my many reasons, or the regulator on the propane hose is stuck. If you are able to access the pilot assemble, you can take a small wire, or even a sewing needle to clear the orifice. If that does not help, you may need to replace the regulator or the connection for the tank.

Patio heater phs won't ignite


Hi, First check if you have a full tank and that the pipes are clear of any insects, water or debris. Next see if you have a spark where the pilot is, if you can hear the piezo clicking but cannot see a spark then check the lead. Sometimes the lead can get loose and short out lower down and prevent the spark from reaching the pilot. You may need to take the lead out to fully check. If you have a spark and gas is reaching the pilot then check the tilt switch, if faulty it can turn the gas valve off. To check you can just short out the tilt switch, found this site very useful patio heater problem solving.

The lid on our Endless Summer Patio Heater 200209 is bent. Can it be fixed? If not, where can I purchase a replacement?


If you are referring to the heat deflector top on the upper most portion of the heater. yes, it can be repaired , if it is not to severely bent. It would require removing it from the heater to straighten it. If the metal is creased, it's not worth repairing.

Blue Rhino is the manufacturer for Endless Summer Patio Heaters, as well as several other brands. You can contact them for replacement parts @ 1.800.762.1142

Pilot light won't stay lit when I let go of the igniter knob. Flame is yellow and long.


Sounds like the Thermocouple has failed and needs to be replaced. It's not difficult to do. But, finding the part may be. Blue Rhino, is the manufacturer for Endless Summer Patio Heaters, so start there.

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.

Replacement regulator required for Endless Summer patio heater


These regulators can usually be purchased from Canadian Tire or Home Depot. If you are unable to locate the exact replacement, email the model number located on the regulator and I will locate one for you. I am in the GTA and can be contacted via company website. www.emshvac.com
But one question, why do you think the regulator is defective? These rarely fail.

Left Patio Heater out for winter, now won't ignite


It could be just a blockage in the pilot assembly, you have to take the head apart to find and clear the blockage. While you are in there you check for a blockage in the main burner orifice as well. If it is just a blockage, then you don't have to replace anything.

If this doesn't get the gas flowing, try replacing the regulator.

Patio heater ignites and stays lit with pilot. Then goes out.


Press and hold for 60 seconds and then it should stay lit (this is a safty feature on most models!)
