Question about Endless Summer 2009 Open Flame Patio Heater

1 Answer

My Blue Rhino Endless Summer infrared patio heater will light, but after a few minutes, it will go out. I suspect the thermocouple. I took the entire heater apart, removed some dead wasps, dirt, etc. Reassembled and it would light, but after a few minutes, would still go out. So, I still suspect the thermocouple. I need a reference to where to buy a thermocouple replacement unit, and/or maybe a complete new pilot assembly, and/or maybe a replacement burner unit if not too much more expesive (so I don't have to disemble and reassemble).

Sounds like the Thermocouple has failed and needs to be replaced. It's not difficult to do. But, finding the part may be. Blue Rhino, is the manufacturer for Endless Summer Patio Heaters, so start there.

Flame goes out after 5 to 10 min then have to wait until it cools to relight


Unless, it's the wind blowing the flame out, I'd say the Thermocouple needs to be replaced. This is based on what you said, " have to wait until it cools to relight." The reason for that, is that the burner control valve has to reset itself. You can also check the pilot and pilot orifice for obstructions. Blowing it out with a can of compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with) may also help solve the problem. As insects like to build nests in these heaters, when they are not in use.

Endless Summer Patio Heaters are manufactured by Blue Rhino under the name Uniflame and Endless Summer. You can purchase any necessary parts from them online, if necessary.

Hope this helps you to solve your problem.

I would have suggested the same thing. It may not be cleaning it needs. If the thermocouple has failed, then it needs to be replaced. I sure would start by giving it all a good cleaning though.

I have an Endless Summer (Blue Rhino) patio heater with model number 153100 and the pilot flame is not strong enough to keep the thermal coupling open. What has to be done to fix that?


The pilot jet may be clogged. If there is a flame, it must be small and blue. A large flame that is orange or yellow tipped means that there is a partial blockage in the pilot assembly which needs to be cleared. The pilot flame must also touch the thermocouple in order to heat it correctly. Make sure that the pilot jet and thermocouple are positioned correctly. If you have an extremely small pilot flame, try repalcing the regulator and hose as the regulator may be failing.

Pilot assembly parts or thermocouples


Hardware store thermocouples don't work on patio heaters. The fittings are not the same thread and they are not set up for the anti tilt safety switch. You'll need to purchase the parts from Blue Rhino.

Try replacing the regulator, easy fix. If it is not the regulator, the thermocouple could be bad, or the pilot flame may not be strong enough to heat the thermocouple. Take apart the head, if you are comfortable with it, and see if there is a blockage in the pilot assembly.

Outdoor patio heater won't stay lit


I'm told by Charmglow that the problem is the Thermocouple. iHowever,it took me several calls to get someone to admit this. They are sending a new thermocoupler. My heater is less than a year old and under warranty--but it's a shame things like this happen.

Originally I was told it could'nt be the thermocoupler as they normally last at least 5 years.

Try it--as it may solve your problem as well.
