Try replacing the thermo coupler.There should be a little bulb shaped part(like a pencil eraser) that the pilot light heats up .The other end screw into the gas valve.If this is going bad or has gone bad the pilot light will not stay lit.Most of these are under$10.Well good luck and try to stay warm.

Pilot light on my Charmglow SRPH02 patio heater will not stay light in order ot light the burner. I have tried all of your suggestions in the manual except replacing the Thermocouple. What is that? I...


The themal couple is probably the culprit. You will see one end of it hanging into the pilot. The pilot heats that end creating a small electric current that allows gas valve to operate. There is a small copper line from the tip near pilot other end goes into gas valve. You can buy universal replacement kits. Usually around $15.00. RV parts store good place to look.

Outdoor patio heater won't stay lit


I'm told by Charmglow that the problem is the Thermocouple. iHowever,it took me several calls to get someone to admit this. They are sending a new thermocoupler. My heater is less than a year old and under warranty--but it's a shame things like this happen.

Originally I was told it could'nt be the thermocoupler as they normally last at least 5 years.

Try it--as it may solve your problem as well.
