Question about Mr. Heater Model MH12TS - Single Tank-top Propane Heater

Open Question

I have a new 15,000 btu tank top heater. After I light the pilot flame and go thru the start up procedure the screen (head) does not glow bright orange and very little heat comes off it. The L shaped tubing at feeding the head glows quite a bit and the air rushing in the tube makes a swrrling sound. Am I doing somthing wrong with this at start up? thanks - Bill

SOURCE: tank-top propane unit won't stay lit

I had to replace the regulator. If you have a propane appliance shop near you, you can probably just get the nipple that goes into the bottle. It's aboit 3/16" diameter, 3/4" long and may have a 6 sided end up inside the screw on cap of the regulator.

I can"t keep my pilot light going.


I am assuming this is a patio heater. I have extensive experience with gas appliances. The most common problem with pilot light issues is the thermocouple it is a probe that is directly over the flame , it senses the flame and allows gas to flow, if it senses no flame the gas valve closes. Patio heaters are also quite finicky, sometimes a simple adjustment of the thermocouple will do the trick. Also thorough cleaning of the orifice is necessary at least 1 x a year.

Heater does not fire or run while top cover is on. take it off it runs perfect try to put the cover on while running it shuts off.


The air pump pressure could be off a little causing incorrect fuel delivery. Follow this link for instructions.

The nozzle could be worn to a point where a spray is being produced rather than a fog. By removing the top lid you are changing the aerodynamics and the safety system likes the color of the flame (falsely). Replace the nozzle. Follow this link.

Too much gas pressure. Are you sure that this is a LP heater and not a Natural gas heater? Is the regulator you have rated under 1/2 pound pressure? Try to throttle down the shutoff on the tank to see if pilot gets better. If so, you have a pressure issue. Gas you adjust the pilot gas valve?

Wall mount propane heater ignites, but won't stay lit


I have a Reddyheat IWH16NLTD with this problem. When the heater fan turns on it blows the pilot light slightly up and away from the thermocouple causing the safety valve to close after the ceramic cools down. The manual says that low gas line pressure can cause the flame to rise too far from the thermocouple causing this problem, so either it is a problem with gas pressure, or it is an assembly plant problem.
