Do you have a good pilot flame? Is it wrapping around the thermocouple good? You may need a new pilot orifice.

Propane heater wont stay running


is the sensor for the thermocouple located in the right spot in the flame,remove it and if you have access to a propane torch,heat the end till its red hot and leave it connected to the gas valve,then start the unit and this will tell you if the sensor is properly positioned in the pilot flame on the unit itself,if not you could have a defective new thermocouple or another safety device keeping it from staying lit or the gas valve is faulty

It sounds like a thermocouple has gone bad. this is a very common problem with gas powered things ie; water heaters, furnaces, hot tubs. The telltale sign is when you release the pilot light button it won't stay lit. This is a safety feature and is relatively inexpensive and easy to repair.

I have universal 350,000 propane heater. Fan runs, but switch will not turn on to allow propane to burner.


The thermo coupler is at fault. If pilot won't stay lit thermo coupler keeps gas off. So, Unless it is a bbQ , make sure the pilot is on or the thermocoupler stays hot while the gas is on.

Wont Stay Lit


I would suggest that you replace the thermo-couple. It is a long, slender copper "wire" that runs from the control unit to inside of the unit. THe thermo couple's job is to regulate the pilot light and the lit flame as well.

They generally cost about $10 and take 10 minutes to replace. Some of them are reversed threaded (rights loosen, lefty tighty) and some of them are regular threaded (righty tighty, lefty loosen). TUrn off the gas supply at the meter or an external valve and remove the thermo couple by unthreading it at the control unit. Bring that with you to the hardware store (lowes or Homedepot) to make finding the correct one a simple task.


I hope this helps.
