Pilot light keeps blowing out. When I do get it working it only works for a little while and the pilot light goes out again. It seems like there is to much presure. I have regular 5 gal propane bottle...

dmartin - Unless there is a strong draft, pilots don't normally don't blow out.

What you described, sounds more like the interior of the heater needs a thorough cleaning. Especially, the pilot assembly and the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS), which is part of the pilot. Also, the placement of the gas grill tank you're using to fuel the heater, may also being playing a role in it, too.
How far away is the tank from the heater and what size gas line is running from the tank to the heater and was it professionally installed? If you live in a high altitude are (above 2000 feet) this may also, be causing the problem.

I have included a link, which demonstrates the proper way to clean a pilot assembly and the ODS sensor. This should be a big help to you.

Please let me know about my questions above and I can provide you with more information on further troubleshooting the problem.

The pilot light won't stay lit.

all the solutions quoted have nothing to do with my problem.
if any of them applied, it wouldn't be a problem with 2 new heaters, as well as the 3 year old heater.
the flame of the pilot jumps away from the orifice after varying periods of time.

there is an overheat switch attached to the draft inducer box where the vent attaches to the heater. It could be getting weak. If you can jump it to test, you may be able to replace it with a universal thermodisc if you can find out at what temperature is opens. Once you figure that out, go to and view their selection of bi-metal switches.

Pilotlight won't stay lit.

It should like you may need to replace the ODS Pilot. This comes with the thermocouple, orifice, electrode, and the bracket that holds them altogether. If you need this part you can purchase it by calling 800-446-1446. Master parts is the part distributor for ProCom units. Thank you
