Pilot is probably clogged with the tinyest bit of dirt ... blow it out with compressed air.

My MR heater ignites but shuts off in about 7 seconds. Same thing happens every time I restart it.


You are not giving enough info to help you.
Is your pilot light hitting the thermocouple? if not, is your propane supply full. If on a 1 lb tank, if it gets low, the pressure goes down and the pilot will get smaller and won't heat the thermocouple properly.
Try cleaning out the pilot tube, bugs tend to nest anywhere the find a hole and it does not take much to slow down the propane flow.
Your problem points to the pilot or the thermocouple and odds are its the pilot / propane supply / pilot jet

Why suburban rv water heater won't fire?


Is the propane tank actually full? Is the valve turned on? You might want to try a different regulator on it.

Lights while holding primer/pilot button then runs out of propane within seconds. If you wait a minute it builds up then does the same thing like the propane tank is empty but it is full.


Turn off the propane tank and disconnect the heater hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the heater hose/regulator to the propane t. Turn the tank valve on very, very slowly until it's completely open again. Now, try lighting the heater. If you are using a 20lb LP grill type tank, that should solve your problem.

Hope that helped.

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.

The pilot on my Procom QL300TYLA will not light. It appears that no propane is getting to the pilot. I tried lighting the pilot and burner with a BBQ lighter but nothing. No propane getting to the unit....


sounds like you have a blocked pilot injector. normally part of the pilot head. if you can remove it , blow it out with compressed air but it must be removed from the pilot head. commonly known as a Pilot restrictor,Pilot spud or Pilot injector

Can't get an outdoor propane heater to light.


turn off propan and heater. Undo the connector hose. then rehook hosewith heater valve off, Turn on propane valve real slow. Propane bottle valves have a safety that senses rapid escape, like in a wide open dump. This should reset it.Then light the pilot . should work.

No propane comes thourgh pilot on mr buddy heater


If the pilot will not light get a q-tip and alcohol and remove the wire grill and be sure the cotton doesn't come off the end of the stick wet the cotton with the alcohol and twist it and push it down into the pilot tube 2 full inches. Let the alcohol soak for 30 seconds and while twisting pull the q-tip out. Try this until the pilot lights.
