Question about Endless Summer 200209 Open Flame Patio Heater

1 Answer

All of a sudden my patio heater will not stay lit.

I have never had trouble with this patio heater. It is about 3 years old. I do not use it a LOT but it has always worked fine. Tonight I lit it and it was fine and then it went out. I thought the gas tank was empty so I swapped it with a new, full tank that I had as a back up and it still keeps going out. It will stay lit for a minute or two and then just goes out. I have checked the connection and it is tight... the hose is NOT kinked and the valve is open full. I just checked the "empty" tank and it seems like it is not really totally empty. What could be the problem?

Describe the pilot. Is it a strong blue flame or lazy yellow? Is the thermocouple getting red hot by the pilot flame? I'm wondering if the pilot is impinging enough on the thermocouple to keep it lit. It may be dirty, so try blowing out the pilot orifice with a can of compressed air and see if that helps. Also make sure the thermocouple tip is not burn't. If you feel the tip and it feels jagged, then replace it. Hope that helps. Douglas

I have a Kirkland patio heater model # PTH-106SS-3G the pilot will not stay lit. Do I need to replace the whole pilot assembly


Hi, If the pilot light goes out when you turn the gas knob to full power on lighting them the most likely cause will be a worn thermocouple, these usually last between 2 years up to 6 years. Found this site very helpful, patio heater problem solving. They have a few solutions to checking patio heaters.

Nexgrill Won't Stay Lit


Is this a patio heater or a grill? In either case, the first thing to replace is the regulator. If that doesn't work, I need to know if it is a grill or heater.

Kirkland outdoor heater will not stay lit


The thermocouple is bad. That is the part right next to the pilot light that sense's the flame and hold the gas valve open to the pilot. Take the old thermocouple off and go to hard ware store and get a 18" one of what ever length you need and replace. 5 dollar part.

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.

Patio Heater pilot lights won't stay lit


crappy pilot flame (not properly heating the thermocouple), bad thermocouple, thermocouple loose where it screws into the pilot safety valve, bad safety valve magnet.

One or more of those is the problem.

Oh...there is also a saftey switch...in case it tips over. It will also cause the pilot to not stay lit (if the switch or wires that go to i are faulty)
