Question about Procom ML300HGA Heater

1 Answer

I can get pilot light to light and it will light the heater but after a few minutes the pilot light will shrink and the unit goes out. I got a full tank of propane. Why won't it stay lit? I bought it February of this year and it worked fine. Turned off for the summer. And tried to warm the house on chilly mornings and no heat. Thanks for any assistance provided.

When I press down and turn the know the pilot lights but as soon as you let up on the knob to turn it there is a click and the pilot light goes out.. This is on my Mr. Heater Big Buddy


When the pilot lights continue holding the button down for a full minute and then release. It should stay lit then to allow you to turn it to the on position. If the pilot will not stay lit after holding it for the full minute, then the thermocouple will need to be replaced.
Hope this helps.

If you have a standing pilot that wont stay lit and you have to keep relighting it, it can only be a couple of things that will do this.
1. Try tighting the thermocouple at the gas valve. (this is a thin copper line that goes from the gas valve and goes to the pilot light.)
2. Make sure that the tip of the thermocouple is in the pilot light flame.
3. Make sure that the thermocouple is clean.

Pilot after a few minutes of operation flutters and slowly goes out. lil Buddy Heater


The thermocouple is bad or not aligned properly. It is the metal bar in front of the pilot light. This bar senses the heat put off by the pilot light. If it does not get hot it will not allow the gas to flow. You either need to align it so that it is in front of the pilot light and receives enough heat to allow the gas valve to operate or possibly the thermocouple has gone bad and needs replacing.

Have a Raypak RP2100. When I turn it on the pilot lights fine but after a few minutes (~30 minutes) the heater turns off and PLT is indicated on the control panel. If I recycle the power it lights fine and...


If your Raypack (mine is a 2100 but most have the same electronic ignition pilot) lights and runs for about 2-5 minutes an then shuts off, you need to clean the pilot sensor. The pilot sensor tells the unit the Burners are running. If the pilot sensor becomes corroded, carbon, etc. the unit will light but will shut off after a few minutes as it thinks the unit is not operating properly. The unit will try to re light, but fail, and then PLT will show on the main programming screen. To fix the probelm, shut off the unit power. Remove the pilot assembly which is located at the bottom right of the unit. There is one screw holding the pilot assembly in place. Gently remove the pilot assembly. There is a fork like probe sensor (not the one with ignition and gas feed) that needs to be cleaned. Take some rough sand paper and clean it thoroughly. Re insert pilot assembly and fire the unit. If this fails, clean the sensor again. Problem solved!

Pilot goes out afeter a few minutes


I bet you have a dirty pilot assmbley which caused the thermocouple to go bad. Remove the assembley clean it well (including the small oriface inside the assembley). then install a new thermocouple (probably 12-15 dollars) this should solve your problem.
