Make sure the gas knob is turned to on, usually switch located on valve. You could also try to bleed any air in the line by taking the drip leg apart for a few
seconds.

Check to see if yhou have 24volts at the gas valve, if
you do and you have gas to the valve, then you will probably need a new gas valve.

Frontgate patio heater, serial number 01A02 0023562, model number SRPH02, cust number SHCDPH, pilot light won't light (checked gas tank already)


First check that you are getting a spark, if not check lead and ignitor. If getting a spark make sure that there are no leaks, to do a gas leakage test see Patio heater problem solving. Next check the tilt switch if fitted, just short it out by joining up the two leads. If OK look for any debris/insects around the pilot and clean. A worn thermocouple will turn the gas off, these can last anywhere for 2 years up to 6 years but will at some point need replacing.

I have a full tank of propane - my pilot light is sparking but it will not light? Any ideas on what to check? Thank you, Korby


Korby, I think you meant, your ignitor is sparking and you're not getting gas to the pilot. Since you have a full tank of propane, I can rule out that the tank is empty. However, I believe the tank or at least the tank valve is playing a role in this.

Turn the tank valve completely OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion, slow) until the valve is fully open. Then light the pilot as you normally would. If the pilot lights, you solved the problem. If it didn't, either the pilot light is clogged and needs to be cleaned or the heater's hose/regulator assembly needs to be replaced.

Endless Summer Patio Heaters are made by Blue Rhino. So, if you need parts, that's where you can get them. Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

If you're using a 20lb propane tank (Gas Grill Tank), that may be the problem. Turn off the propane tank at the tank valve and disconnect it from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reattach the heater hose to the tank. Turn the propane tank valve on very,very slowly until it's all the way open. Try lighting your heater now. If the pilot flame height returned to normal, that was the problem.

FYI - The Thermocouple has nothing to do with the length of the pilot flame. It's a safety feature that stops the gas if the pilot flame goes out for any reason.

Hope that solves your problem. Please let me know.

they will be air in the gas line , and the pilot injector being so small it will take ages for gas to come through , you need to purge the gas line undo a union or nut or pilot suppy to purge the line of air test joints after with soapy water .

Pilotlight will not light, getting spark, but no propane.


make sure you have the gas valve knob on turned to pilot while pressing that down while pushing the spark it should light or it is tripped on a safety like rollout switch or oxygen depletion sensor if equipped which all ventless heaters are
