HI it sounds like the fire cement between them needs replacing you can buy this at home hardware or heating supplier this should stop the flame down the middle , it stops air getting in and it will burn better , hope this helps you ?

After connecting new 20 lb. LP gas tank to the fire pit and turning on the gas, I find that gas is not being delivered to the pilot, thus making it impossible to light a fire. Any suggestions?

tank safety valve. turn it off, turn it on several times with burner off.
if you hear a definate little snap,, thats when it activates the internal safety cutoff valve. when you get the valve on without the snap your good to go. I have had some bottles that I had to jar the bottom of bottle on the ground to get the valve to drop and to give out the gas. Then when all else fails take it back. always keep it upright..

I have an AIM 3 Panel Gas Heater. I have just purchased a 9kg gas, connected everything as I normally did (last year), however the gas is not flowing through as it should. There is an ignition spark, but...

More than likely, there is air in the line from the gas bottle to the heater. Purging the air, by holding the heater's control knob down while in the Pilot position, until you smell gas, will solve the problem. This may take several minutes, so be patient. Once you smell gas, release the control knob and wait 5 minutes before attempting to light the pilot.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a junkers boiler when i turn the water on it reads EA on the panel and there it is not firing up

EA on mind means out of gas. Connect new gas bottle and press and hold, for a couple of seconds, the red light which is flashing, to reset.

Why wont the ignition click the gas to come on. It clicks for about 10 seconds then turns off.

Make sure the gas is on first and that if you are on bottled gas that the bottles are not empty.
What type of heater is it?

Patio heater

There must be a blockage in the hose and regulator or your large tank may be checking and not allowing the unit to stay lit. Remove the large bottle. Let the gas line equalize for about 30 seconds and then reattach the bottle. Very slowly, open the knob on the large tank and I mean very slowly. Did I say open it slowly. The new OPD propane tanks often have a very touchie excess control valve that won't allow enough gas through if opened too rapidly. Now tray and light the heater. If you still experience the same, get a technician involved so they can inspect the gas pressure.

Gas supply keeps cutting out

I'd be checking what the operating gas pressure is correct - when it's operating, not when it's stopped or off. My suspicion is that the gas pressure is incorrect & the regulator needs adjusting, or that the gas bottle is simply too small for the heater & can't evaporate enough gas to keep it going. You really need a gas expert to advise on site. Regards, Greg (Aussie gasfitter - too far to do house calls)
