Table propane fire pit flames waaaay too low!

We inherited a bar height outdoor table with a propane fire pit in the middle of the top. it lights, but the flame is really low, and we cannot put lava rocks and/or logs on it or the flames will be non-existent! suggestions? We made sure the holes are clear and blew air through just to make sure there was nothing blocking anywhere. Other propane fire pits i've seen have great flames that look quite similar to a real fire...ours....not so much :o) Please help! we'd love to be sitting out of our back deck enjoying the fire with the cooler weather!

Make sure the grate is in the holder like the others, and nothing is blocking the bottom of it. They often slip back where the fire misses the inside where it should hit.

SOURCE: One burner has low flame

Try looking for webs back to where the burner tube meets the valve. Otherwise you need to remove burner tube to access back of valve to clean with a torch tip cleaner or compressed air, (remember to disconnect grill from gas source first) inside valve orifice.  Usually the back of valve can be removed with a wrench. Worst case you always get a new valve off internet if you can't resolve the plug. Hope this helps, good luck.

SOURCE: Flames shooting up from back of Coleman stove.

Buy a new one. do not attempt to use this one again. There could be a pin hole in the propane lines or just a small crack. If you can hear it then there's a problem.

However if you really want to fix this one try putting water on the propane lines and then putting on a new tank and opening the valve. DO NOT LIGHT THE STOVE. where there are bubbles there is your leak. When you find it seal it with a Flame retardent sealent or clamp the line. Also I believe Lowe's sells parts that may work. just find out which line is leaking and replace the whole line.

I highly recommend just buying a new one and destroying the old one. DO NOT just throw it away please. Some one out there will grab it and try and use it. They will find out the hard way and maybe get hurt badly themselves or hurt someone else. Just imagine the guy who grabs it and goes camping with his family. Him and his son start it up. the son is right next to the unit. The guy fires it up and boom the son gets burned. Is it just me or would you feel bad if you knew this guy. I have seen it first hand. trust me it sucks. A buddy of mine did this and his son was in hospital for 3 days. he said he will never do that again.

So for safety sake please just buy the new one. don't take unnessecary risks if you don't have too.

SOURCE: flame blow back

Add a high wind stack to ensure positive vent pressure. It is a seperate option available from whomever in your area carries Purex heater parts.

I have a fire pit and when attempting to light it with the internal proprane valve; it will light, but when I quit depressing the valve, it eventually burns itself out.


You you have only two options...

move the thermocouple closer to the heat source (keeping it out of the direct flame (which will drastically shorten the useful-life)...

Or your thermocouple is defective and need to be replace.

A make & model did not come through on this end of the question... Or you would have gotten a more precise response.

Enjoy your pit.. They are great.

How do I keep my gas fire pit lit?


My guess is hold in the button for 30 seconds and the slowly release the button. The thermocouple has to first warm up before you release the knob. Remember wait and then release slowly. Just a guess.

Patio glow outdoor propane fire pit does not stay lit


Fire pits motivated by gas. Need suffocation. A natural fire needs oxygen. Gas fires need suffocation. Take the wood or rocks and make it tighter over the gas holes. Meaning Pile the rocks on top of gasoline tighter or more generously so the gas and the flame are not coming out hitting straight oxygen. Give the fire something to hold onto. Natural fires need the opposite. Propelled fires need a sauna /steam room / hot rock type of relationship.

I am getting an ignition lockout code on the digital readout. what would be the cause? it sparks and calls for heat and will fire for about 2 seconds and then the ignition lockout code is displayed as the...


Ignition Lockout on this unit means #1 that it is set up on propane. If you are low on propane, or were low on propane and just refilled, low/no gas pressure could be the issue. If you ran out of propane, thre is now air in the gas line that needs to be fully blead out.
If propane level is not the issue, replace the ignitor.

The ignitor on these units is also the flame rectifier (flame sensor). If the unit is firing up, but the computer thinks that it is not, then it is not sensing a flame. Replacing the flame rectifier/ignitor will fix the problem in this case.

Low gas flow - low heat


Hi Lyon,
Yeah, it's the regulator. Fortunately, they're cheap and easy to replace!

You can look on line for part number 80012. Or you can remove yours and take it to Home Depot or Lowe's in the outdoor cooking area and match up a replacement. <--- they're all the same... just make sure the compression fitting (the brass end) is the same size.

The only other thing I could recommend is this... Turn the LP bottle completely off. Then completely remove the big plastic knurled knob from the tank. Now replace the knob back onto the tank (all the way and make sure it's tight). Then S L O W L Y turn the gas back on. Now try your pit. If you get the same flame, it's the regulator. If you get full flame, you just reset the safety device inside the tank.

I'm betting regulator. Good luck and happy cookin'!
