Try looking at the jets ,the gas jet fires into a tube with the end open so its either bigger or has slot either side ,now what i suspect has happened is a insect has made its nest in the jet hole or this mixer orrifice ,and its normally a wasp that paralises a spider lays its egg on the live paralised spider and then seals it in with mud .This is a common occurance by the way .

If your propane tank has an OPD valve.. in other words if when the tank is disconnected and you open the tank valve and no gas escapes..it's an OPD valve..these are pretty much standard especially on the exchangeable tanks.

The problem sometimes is at the connection hose..it too of course must be an OPD connector to depress the internal ring on the tank valve before any gas will come out.

Chances are the knurled knob is either cross threading or is cracked..and won't snug up enough to depress that internal ring on the tank valve. Or you have miss matched components.. unlikely if you bought genuine replacement parts.

The All Pro Heater you have requires a specific part (fitting) to be added when using a universal regulator (Part number 6122) which is a 3/8 connector male.

This of course is assuming you hear no gas hissing.. cannot light it manually..

Sounds simple..but I have seen this problem on outdoor BB'Q's many times.. cracked knob on the connector hose and a few times simply backing it off and putting it back on.. tight enough to depress that ring..

Best of luck!

I need to convert a Endless Summer Blue Rhino patio heater Mod. No. 233010 from naturalm gas to propane , what do i need


You would need new pilot and main burner orifices. You would also have to ask the dealer/manufacturer if the valve on the propane heater will work with propane. It may not because the propane tank will have to be connected to the heater using an LP hose and regulator. You would then need to take apart the heater to install the new orifices. Considering the cost of a new heater that is set up for LP, I do not believe the conversion to be practical.

Sounds like the thermocouple is not working or you are not keeping the start or pilot button depressed long enough before turning gas valve to on position. Check to see if thermocouple end hasn't come loose, the pilot should be hitting it. This produces the small electrical current necessary to open gas valve. Hope this helps.

It does not light either by pilot light switch or with a match


If you are sure that your propane tank is not empty you may have a safety feature malfunction. Unscrew the propane tank. wait two minutes and then reinstall the tank. That will reset the safety feature.

Coleman 5040 Patio Heater w/ Light - Light works, Heater does not


BE VERY CAREFUL sticking matches in any propane appliance! With the gas OFF see if you can physically see the spark when you push the ignitor, if yes, the problem may be the regulator or bottle pressure the only test i am aware of for the regulator is replacement.

Endless Summer Patio Heaters won't stay lit


Hi ColdinSF,

You need to remove the covers from the unit and blow out the gas lines with compressed air. If you can remove the gas lines blow out the lines and what they connect to like the pilot light and main feed line to the burner. Usually they gunk up with use and just need to be blown out with compressed air to clear the lines again. Maybe you have some dirt or foreign object from your gas tank which has clogged the line. Also check the igniter electric lines as well and make sure everything is connected properly. Especially make sure you tighten the gas lines you remove. Hope this helps.

Regards
Bryan
