I am will look for a manual but only having HSS type / style heater to search for a manual is not enough information to get assembly insturctions, operation or repair data. Help me help you please. See if you can find a model number somewhere on the unit and respond with the model number.

    After much more research Instituto Giordano is the Labratory testing service that provides the testing and safety certification of the unit in Italy. It looks like we are faced with... simply an HSS Patio heater.

    Try looking at the manuals on this page:

    You will have to download them one at a time and view them. Most of these manuals are for Natural gas heaters.

    This might be the manual your looking for:

    Some where on that unit there has to be a model data plate even if it is on the bottom or next to the gas valve. It is possible they used an adhesive decal and it is no longer on the unit.....

    The manuals in my previous post cover most all patio heaters in their various forms. Did you look at the manuals at all? Regretfully the AA type is of little assistance.

    Is there are particular problem your having?

We were given an 87" stainless steel propane patio heater. Our deck ceiling is 96". Will that be enough clearance?

Had a look at the manual on a BFX750 patio heater and the distance required is 50cm above (18") and 60cm to the side (24"). If its the same type with around 13kw or 44,000BTU/h of power then this is the clearance is needed for air and heat.

How much does the hss-a-ss stainless steel patio heater cost?

There are many generic patio heaters that use standard model codes, it can be very difficult to find who the supplier is. HSS or SS is a standard Chinese factory code, to find a price and supplier take a look locally or via the web and ask for Chinese patio heaters. Worth asking if they have a stainless steel burner, many just fit a chrome or tin plated burner, for more information found this very useful specialist patio heaters.

We have a hss-a-sh patio heater and we are having problems lighting. i know it could be the termocouple,but is the switch with 2 wires on it a tip over switch to cut off the gas. can we jump it out to...

Simple answer is yes, by shorting out the tilt switch it will let you know if the tilt switch is working. Before getting a new thermcouple check the thread size, the main ones out of China are 8mm but some are 10mm. On average a thermocouple will last between 2 years up to 6 years.

I need a manual for a Garden Sun Model HSS-A-SS. The box didn't come with instructions

Did you get an answer to your question? Trying to pursue MFG warranty but for the life of me can't figure out who to call. Tried Home Depot where we purchased - no clue.

My patio heater snapped off, in half, where the pole meets the base. It was on a deck that has walls so it isn't like there was even a lot of wind hitting it. Anyone know if I can get this covered? I have...

The Warranty information is on page 12 for the HSS-A-SS model. I had the exact same thing happen to my patio heater and am interested in any response from people that have had success getting this problem fixed in a fair manor.
The failure on my patio heater was at the weld of the lower pole to the base flange. I'm an engineer and know that that weld should not fail without a huge stress and lots of obvious bending around the weld prior to failure. Mine had no signs of bending around the failure so I believe this is a faulty or very low quality weld issue from the manufacture. I called the number in the manual and was basically told that they do not warranty tip overs but I could take it back to Home Depot and see if they would replace it. I never mentioned that my heater had tipped over! Garden Sun is obviously not in the business of protecting its name and will put words in your mouth to try and get out of something that is obviously a product quality issue. They appear to be exercising loop holes in the Garden Sun warranty. I'm sure there are other loop holes as well because the representative asked me if I had pets (what does that have to do with the strength of their product).
Please pas along if and how you were able to resolve this issue and I'll update if I'm successful at Home Depot.

I purchased GardenSun Patio Heater Model: HSS-A-SH and no screws or bolts came with it. How do I get or replace them? Thanks

Go back to where you got it and tell them. They should provide the needed pieces, free. If you have to buy them, they still should know what to give you. Good luck...Lee

RTA International Patio Heater Won't Burn Properly

I would check the burner is not blocked and check the injector as well.
