Either the burner tube is resrticted or the thermo-coupler is not working. Try cleaning the burner tube.

Schematic patio heater sunjoy g ph018pss


You will not be able to blow through a gas valve when it's disconnected. You may have air in the lines which would cause the pilot to go off when knob is released if not held in long enough. Try lighting again. Once the pilot lights - hold knob in for 5 minutes then release. Try twice, if pilot will not stay lit it's probably the thermal coupler. (metal prong right next to flame of pilot burner.)

The Sunjoy MLPHO18PSS will light but will only stay lit for about 15 minutes and then it goes out. We've replaced the propane tanks thinking it was low but that wasn't the case. Thank you! shar...


More than likely, the Thermocouple is loose where it attaches to the control valve. Or the Thermocouple is going bad.

Sunjoy is manufactured by Uniflame, which is owned by Blue Rhino Corp.

If you end up needing to purchase a new Thermocouple call 800-672-1142

Hope this helps resolve your problem.

My heater lights but then does not stay lit (goes out after about 30 seconds). Any suggestions??


Sounds like the thermocouple is failed or really dirty with soote. When the flame lights and the thermocouple is in touch with the flame...it will create a minute amount of electricity which is sensed by the controler of the system. If it does not sense the flame then it will time out and shut off the gas supply regulator valve and pilot tube!

Burner lites but goes out after 2 or 3 min.


the white rodgers gas control needs to be replaced;
the way it works is: the thermocouple opens the pilot gas circuit and, holds it open
when it heats up by creating a magnetic field in the gas control then: when you turn
the knob on the gas control to "on" a valve inside the gas valve opens the main gas circuit and, electricity supplied by your RV keeps it open.
the main gas coil inside the gas valve is defective and, can not hold the main gas circuit to the burner open anymore.

My electrolux oven won't stay lit


Right above your pilot light, there is a little temperature probe. It either needs to be cleaned, replaced, or adjusted closer to the top of the pilot flame. Hope this helps. Good luck!

My magic chef kitchen range oven won't turn on, no gas


Some of the models require you to push in the oven thermostat knob to set the pilot if it blows out. So try pushing in the knob and hold it while lighting the pilot. When the pilot lights continue to hold the knob in for about a minute. When you let go of the knob the pilot should stay lit. If it does not stay lit then try it one more time. If it continues to go out the thermocouple or aso might be bad and will need service.

Dyna-glo rmc-fa100a won't stay lit after releasing pilot knob


You should hold the pilot knob in at least 1 to 2 minutes, if it still goes out you need to replace the thermocouple. I hope this helps you out.

Patio heater


There must be a blockage in the hose and regulator or your large tank may be checking and not allowing the unit to stay lit. Remove the large bottle. Let the gas line equalize for about 30 seconds and then reattach the bottle. Very slowly, open the knob on the large tank and I mean very slowly. Did I say open it slowly. The new OPD propane tanks often have a very touchie excess control valve that won't allow enough gas through if opened too rapidly. Now tray and light the heater. If you still experience the same, get a technician involved so they can inspect the gas pressure.
