Patio Heater pilot lights won't stay lit

I read this thread and I can light my patio heater but the pilot light will not stay lit after the on/pilot/med/high know is un-depressed. I put the knob on med or high with a lighted flame where the pilot light is and nothing happens. Any ideas?

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)

Why won't my patio heater light


The thermocouple has to be in contact with the flame at all times when pilot is lit, this heats up and sends mill-volts back to the safety valve to keep the gas on, if not it won't let the gas through, otherwise you need to clean the pilot or replace the thermocouple if everything else is ok..

Pilot light will light and stay lit, but will go out when you turn on the burner.


The most likley cause for patio heaters that light but go out when turned up is a worn thermocouple. These are consumable items that need changing when the patio heaters fails to light. Found this site very useful:

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.

Pilot light won't stay lit when I let go of the igniter knob. Flame is yellow and long.


Sounds like the Thermocouple has failed and needs to be replaced. It's not difficult to do. But, finding the part may be. Blue Rhino, is the manufacturer for Endless Summer Patio Heaters, so start there.

Pilot on my patio heater will not stay lit. goes out when i release the knob


If the heater is the same as this type of patio heater and it lights on pilot and goes out it is generally a worn thermocouple. These are designed to switch off the patio heater when something is wrong, changing one fixed 90% of the problems. Sometimes it can also be caused by a worn tilt switch but always start with the most likley and work backwards. Found this site very useful, patio heater problem solving page.

Patio heater ignites and stays lit with pilot. Then goes out.


Press and hold for 60 seconds and then it should stay lit (this is a safty feature on most models!)

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.
