Question about DCS PHFS Phoenix III Outdoor Patio Heater
So the pilot flame stays lit after you release the pilot button, but goes out when you turn the knob to on. First make sure the pilot flame is a strong blue flame that is actually heating the thermocouple. If it's a lazy yellow flame, then it is dirty and will need to be blown out with a can of air with attached straw (to remove dust, spiderwebs, etc). You also might check the burner and orifice to make sure they are not blocked by a bug nests, etc and clean out as needed.
Make sure the thermocouple tip is not burn't off from the pilot flame. It should be a smooth rounded tip. If it's not, then replace it.
Lastly, make sure you're not turning the propane tank valve on too fast. To check this; disconnect the tank, reconnect it and then turn the valve on very slowly. Hopefully one of these solutions will fix your problem. Have a great weekend! Douglas
