Not too familiar with this product, but it looks like a vent free heater. ALL vent free heaters are required to have an ODS pilot light. These pilots monitor the oxygen level in the room and if it detects a low oxygen level, it shuts down the whole heater. This is what I think is really happening. And the solution is simple. Near the rear of the metal tube where the pilot light flame comes out, you will find two very small holes. If these holes get even a little plugged up with dust you will have this problem. Just get a can of air or use an air compressor and blow air through these holes. I bet that this will solve your problem. It is also a good idea to keep the area around your heater clean and free of dust. I have a free standing gas log heater and at the start of each season I take the logs out and vacuum everything, inside and out, and also underneath the unit. Then I use my air compressor to blow out any remaining dust, especially around the pilot light, and of course, I then blow air through the two tiny holes in the pilot light tube. Since I started doing this, I have not had any problems with my heater.

SOURCE: charmglow model cgl300tq. cannot seem to get

You will need a manometer to determine your gas pressure, the amount required is posted on your appliance. Take both a static and dynamic reading on the inlet side of the gas valve. If it is not high enough consult a plumber. If it is take a reading on the manifold side. If the gas pressure is too low again consult a plumber. If it is within spec check orifaces and burner tubes if any for debris and spiders.

Depends what is actually wrong with fan, if tis the blower barrel part you can by replacements but if its the fan and you van't find manufacturer try an commercial or indutrial fan place to match the one you have be careful to make sure that it is electrically compatible and that it will connect to heater safely and do as old fan did as fan speeds on heaters can be important

Burner on Charmglow patio heater will not stay on.


believe it or not, the propane tank may be too full. The vapor space is taken up and you have very little vapor. Run some warm water over the tank. The garden hose may be enough but if you get no frost line the water will need to be warmer. The warm water causes the liquid fuel to turn into vapor. Do not use boiling hot water. Another thing is oening the valve. Most propane tanks have safety valves. If the gas escapes faster than a normal rate, the valve closes. Open the valve slowlyand lt it burn for about 10 minutes before opening the valve further. It will get better as the fuel is used up and the vapor space in the tank increases. In real cold climates a heater blanket, sleeve is used tho keep the bottle warm. The vapor also creates the the needed pressure to move the gas through the system to the burners. Good Luck-Ned_
