Question about RTO Garden Sun Stainless Steel & Green Outdoor Table Top Patio Heater 44,000 BT
New T35PHLPTable Top Heater. Used twice. Now when I insert the propane tank and turn to pilot no propane at the top. Same for full open. Reseated tank,chamged tank, same problem.
The nib that goes into the gas bottle has a built in filter. Quite often, it looks like tiny brass beads. Moisture gets into the filter and causes corrosion. The heater can work one day and not the next, depending on how much moisture got in. The weather conditions alone, or the condensation from changing bottles is enough to swell the corrosion to the point of totally stopping the gas flow. Try soaking it in a tarnish remover like Tarn-X. It might or might not work. Another liquid to try would be pure white vinegar. It will need to be blown out with high pressure air and thoroughly dried INSIDE, before reinstalling it.

Not sure where you are in the world. But where i am we have to use regulators on all propane units. If you have one fitted remove it and do a direct connect. This should eliminate a faulty regulator if propane is getting through now.
Also at the pilot jet, check that it is not blocked by carbon. use a "pricker" to clean the jet.
Thanks for using FIXYA

This is a multiple part answer, is this the first time this year you have tried to use it? And when it was stored did you store it with the tank on it? If Not what might have happened is that there is dirt or possibly some insect has tried to make a nest in the nozzle of the heater, I would try and clean after inspecting it for contamination. I would use a cleaner that dries and if you have compressed air all the better to blow out afterwards. This would be the cheapest way to first try and fix if not then the control assembly would possibly have to be replaced. Also you are sure that the tanks being used do have fuel in them and they are seated fully? When you turn to pilot are you making sure to push in the button to light? Let me know and I will try and help further.
