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

Will only throw flames if holdin button in


the thermal coupler could be bad. try and hold the gas button down for about 15 to 20 seconds and see if the flame will stay on after that amount of time when button is released. if it still goes out - then replace the coupling with a new one and all should be good after that.

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.
