Sahara big burn patio heater


From the Troubleshooting Guide - Check the Obvious Turn on the gas and listen at the burner to see if you can hear the gas arriving.
If the patio heater has an electronic ignition system make sure that there is a spark. If there is a spark but the heater will not light up, try using a lighter or burning spill to light the gas. Be ready for a flash over if you have been trying to light the gas for a while-there might be a small cloud of gas near the burner.

Start at the Bottom The most likely reason that a gas heater will not work is that there is no gas. Take out the empty gas cylinder and replace it with a full one. Often you will feel that there is still gas in an empty cylinder but there is not enough to create the pressure needed to drive the gas burner. An empty cylinder will feel light.

Check the Gas Regulator The gas regulator is the connection of the gas cylinder to the gas pipe that takes the gas up to the burner. Some regulators have a flip switch that prevents the valve in the top of the cylinder from being depressed-effectively an "off" switch. If there is such a switch, make sure that it is in the "on" position.

Check the Gas Pipe Although it is most unlikely that the gas pipe can get blocked, remove the gas pipe from the regulator and from the gas inlet at the top of the heater. This pipe is pressure fitted and held in place by pipe clips. Blow air through the pipe to ensure that it is clear.

Check the Burner The burner will be a very simple assembly. Take each part off in turn and check for any blockages. Also check that the burner apertures are set correctly. Beneath each burner is a small chamber in which air and gas are mixed. Make sure that the gas and air inlets are clear.

If Your Heater has a Pilot Light If your heater has a pilot light, there is the possibility that the thermo couple has failed. The thermo couple is usually shaped like an inverted "v" and sits in the flame of the pilot light. The temperature acts on the thermocouple to keep the gas supply to the burner open. A good indication that the thermocouple has broken down is that the pilot light goes out when you try to turn the heater on. Thermo couples are readily available patio heater parts and usually available from stock.

If you have carried out all the checks and the heater will still not light, you can repeat all the checks more slowly and carefully or take your heater to a specialist for a service.

The above link unfortunately states Benzomatic no longer provides parts for their patio heaters. There may be a comparable generic part out here that you can substitue for the original part.

Need parts list for a Sunjoy brand model G-ph018pss stainless steel patio heater.


Patio Heaters Genuine Spares And Replacement Parts

This is the best that I could find. I believe that items like this are imported from China with no support stock of spare parts. In the old days, one could locate the manufacturer in the US and buy any individual part he wanted.

My sunstar patio heater fell over in the wind and now I cannot get it to turn on. Where is the safety shut off and how do I reset it?


I went through the parts diagram and could not find a saftey shut off in the parts list. It may be that when it fell over, the electrode got knocked out of place. If you get gas to the pilot, but the ignitor will not light the pilot you have to take apart the head and see if the electrode gap is to big for the spark to ark across. If you aren't getting gas then there may be a blockage in the pilot assembly and you have to take the head apart for that also. You can replace the regulator, easy to do and not very expensive first.

Desa TD 104 Patio Gas heater


Sounds like you may not be getting enough gas up to the main burner. Bugs, such as spiders, love to make homes out of the main supply lines. Does your pilot light burn blue, and strong? If not, it may need to be cleared of the obstruction. Also, when opening the the gas tank valve, are you opening it slowly?
