Question about Coleman 5040-751 BackHome Open Flame Patio Heater
Light gets gas and will ignite but heater does not.
can't smell any gas when knob is turned to full on position.
does not light even when trying to use match at pilot area of burner.
replaced burner assembly last year but did not solve problem
I called Nexgrill technical support at 1-800-913-8999. They are sending me a new thermo couple to keep the valve open when ignited - so the patio heater will stay on. I needed to give them the serial number (inside the propane tank door) and fax them a copy of the receipt.
Hope this helps.

Your thermocoupler seems at fault. The thermocoupler is that probe that sits in the pilot flame. It controls the main fuel valve. Make sure that probe is in the pilot flame, better at the tip of the flame and hold the button down for a minute or so after lighting the pilot. If pilot extinguishes, the coupler is faulty. If pilot stays on the heater should fire up when you let up on the pilot button.. Good luck

BE VERY CAREFUL sticking matches in any propane appliance! With the gas OFF see if you can physically see the spark when you push the ignitor, if yes, the problem may be the regulator or bottle pressure the only test i am aware of for the regulator is replacement.

Go to www.grainger.com and look for a "power pile generator" this is a millivolt thermocouple that may be just what you need to make your heater work again

Check the tip over senser,,, it is a plastic senser located under the screen, usually near the knob. It has 2 wires running to it, jumper them together and try it,, then order a new senser from the manufature.
