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.

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.
