Why won't my patio heater light


The thermocouple has to be in contact with the flame at all times when pilot is lit, this heats up and sends mill-volts back to the safety valve to keep the gas on, if not it won't let the gas through, otherwise you need to clean the pilot or replace the thermocouple if everything else is ok..

The patio heater starts fine and heats well. Then after about a half hour of use the flame will go out. It can be restarted and will heat again but the same thing will happen again, this time after about...


First thing to check is the fuel, if running on butane it will on cold nights slow down, pop and then go out. It will then run again when it's be left for a while. Butane works best on warm nights but for all year use switch to propane, this will work to -6 degrees. For information on fuel see different types of fuel. If that does not not fix it try this help pages patio heater top repair tips.

I go thru the process of lighting the pilot light following the directions exactly, but as soon as I let the pilot light switch pop out so that I can turn it to the left to light the heater the flame goes...


The system works off of a thermocouple that is heated by the pilot. The thermocouple creates millivolts that magnetize a head behind the control knob. When you push in the knob the magnetized head behind the knob holds the gas valve open. So obviously the head is not being magnetized. First make sure that the pilot is not plugged and the flame is large enough to heat the thermocouple. Also sometimes you may need to hold the knob for several minutes before the pilot will stay on. Also patio heaters have a safety feature that will cut the millivolt circuit if the heater falls over. It is possible that this safety device is tripped or defective causing the pilot to not stay lit. Also check for any loose wires on the millivolt system.

Have Endless Summer patio heater. I got the burner to run but after 3-5 minutes the heater shuts down. Also having problems getting the unit to fire after lighting pilot light Maybe thermo coupler?


It could be the thermocouple, but you have to take the head apart to replace it. If you got the main burner to fire, then the thermocouple is probably ok. Try changing the regulator, easy to do and not to expensive. If that doesn't work, try taking the head apart and cleaning the pilot and main burner orifices, do both while you are in there. If you are not comfortable doing this, hire someone.

Patio Heater constantly goes out for no apparent reason


I wrote this for another person with a heater problem and thought it may help you as well.

Before you go changing parts, clean up the pilot assembly. When you heat metal and let it cool and heat it again it causes it to corrode. Also for some reason these areas seem to attract little spiders who make their homes here. This causes gas flow problems which in turn could affect the size and direction the pilot flame. For if it does not touch the thermocouple, thermopile or whatever that little thingy is called that tells the gas valve to allow the gas to flow...it will not tell the gas valvle to let it flow. Remove the corrosion, spiders, spider webs and any other insects then sand the thermocouple, thermopile or whatever that little thingy is with a rough sandpaper to remove corrosion. It will likely work after that.

I had them do the same thing. The gas flow problem caused a week pilot. Any slight breese pulled the pilot off of the thermocouple and out it went.
Pull the gas line off of the pilot and make sure you have good gas pressure when you press the pilot button. If you feel, hear and smell it it is good gas pressure.

Coleman patio heater 5040A770


These heaters are not designed to be operated below 40 degrees F. If the heater is used below 40 and if you have a gas tank containing less than 25%, the unit will not operate for long and will start going out. If the heater all of a sudden goes out without showing any flickering or pulsations, you have a bad gas valve, there is no thermocouple on this model. Fill your tank and try the heater again. If it continues, give Coleman a call at 800-835-3278.
