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.

SOURCE: No Gas in Heating Element

If you are using the heater at temperatures below 40 degrees, ther will not be enough gas vapor to run the heater. If the temperature is above 40, look for an obstruction in the gas piping or gas valve itself. There is a small screen on the inlet side of the gas valve that you can inspect if you remove the inlet hose. Make sure you reinstall the hose using a teflon base pipe sealant on the threads.

The ticking noise is the ignigtor. If the gas tank is full, and the regulator is on, then try lighting with a match or fire of some sort. Be careful of the spark-er! If it lights, then the spark needs to be adjusted so it catches the gas better. If it doesn't lite, then the hole for the pilot is plugged. An outside heater is common for a spider or other creature to make this his home. You need to clean it out. Compressed air even another flame may do it. if not It needs to be removed and cleaned out. If you can see the little hole, trey poking a thin piece of wire into it, it may get it.

BE VERY CAREFUL sticking matches in any propane appliance! With the gas OFF see if you can physically see the spark when you push the ignitor, if yes, the problem may be the regulator or bottle pressure the only test i am aware of for the regulator is replacement.

Pilot turns on but when I switch to turn it on,


When you light the pilot, are you holding it down for 30-60 seconds. When you release the pilot button, does the pilot flame stay lit? Or does it only go out when you turn the knob to on position. Make sure the pilot flame is heating the end of the thermocouple and that it's a strong blue flame, not a lazy yellow pilot flame. Make sure the tip of the thermocouple is not burn't off, which usually happens with lazy yellow pilot flames. Replace thermocouple is nothing else works.

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

This must be a top secret heater design. Coleman is dwfinately of no help. The whites go to the ignitors or the output of the spark generator. The black is generaly a ground. Good luck.
