Question about Uniflame 200209 Open Flame Patio Heater

1 Answer

Lack of heat

Hi. I have a Uniflame "Richmond" model grill bought at Walmart.There are no briquettes with this model. My problem is that, even with a full tank of propane, I cannot get "real" heat from the unit. I feel that the cover above the flame inhibits the true grilling experience. It is very frustrating. Any ideas please send to me by email at jrj2@shaw.ca
Thank you.

The plates protect the burners and help disperse the flame more evenly across the grill surface. Make sure the tank is completely open (knob on top of tank) and that when the burner is turned up to high, the flames out of the burners are about 1 1/2 to 2" long, mostly blue in color. If they are smaller, and the tank is open all the way, the regulator hose may be defective.

After one heat cycle, the blower motor keeps running, even after cool down is complete. The furnace will not refire until i turn off the power and wait about 20 minutes for a reset.


your limit switch is opening up, that causes constant fan. Check for flashing codes after flame shuts off and fan continues. Check airflow, filters, lack on return air for possible hi temp limit problems.

I have a sunjoy patio heater and i can light it be after about 30 seconds it makes a click noise and goes out like gas is cut off. What is the problem and where can i order parts?


The thermocouple needs to be replaced. If you still have your Owners Manual it will show you a parts breakdown and how to replace it. If you don't have it, go to the Uniflame home page and search for the owners manual for that model heater. You then can download it in a pdf format.

I believe the website address is www.uniflame.com. Uniflame is owned and manufactured by Blue Rhino.

Dear Sir, Mod. ES800 Btu800/hr. I get white flame instead of blue. How do I adjust the air mix?


Each one of their models or a little different, so I went to their website to view one of the Owners Manuals. It appears that that the air shutter control valve or air intake valve as you called it is not adjustable. It's preset at the factory. However, I may be wrong and would advise you to call Uniflame Customer Service @ 800-762-1141 for further information. From the few I have replaced parts on, they can be a bear to work on.

Bought model (I think this is model #) 29456 at yard sale; using it to heat garage -- do I need to vent? door open ok? or can I use ventless?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Anything that burns produces Carbon monoxide. There is no way to physically vent the space heater but you can leave a side door open for air. The key is to notice the signs of nausea, the lack of ability to do things requiring manual dexterity / clumsiness, dizziness or a headache when your using the unit. Also... it is a good idea to have someone check on you about every 30 minutes if your working alone in a garage. Make sure they know how to turn off the heater and how to open your garage door. (just common sense stuff)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Yes but you need to replace the valves, burner orifices as well as the regulator the screws into the propane tank. Go to cagrills.com and search their models for the proper parts.

Forced Hot Air Heating system doesn't maintain thermostat setting


It sounds like you may have issues with the furnace. A qualified professional can go over the system and the house to let you know if the system and unit are properly sized. The poor performance of a furnace can be a sign of carbon buildup in the furnace.
Good luck, hope this helps.

Pilot light lit but no heat


the pilot's millivolt generator may be at fault.  if you have a meter that is capable of measuring a very small DC voltage, connect it up to the very end of the thermocouple and the copper cappillary. the thermocouple has a welded bead at the very end inside that generates a small DC voltage. Same principle of a J-K thermocouple. Iron constintan  - two dissimiller metals where joined together produce a voltage when heated.  the thermocouple actuates a millivolt electromagnet inside the valve to keep the valve pellet open.  no voltage there it won't actuate the electromagnet.
