    I have a Comfort Glow that I run off natural gas in my garage. I've used it for 5 winters. Went to start the pilot, it lights but will not stay on. Ive tried letting is burn for quite some time hoping it was just air in the line, but after several tries for at least 15 minutes each, it still wont stay lit. Anyone out there have any advice? Email me please, [email protected]

    Exact same problem here. I replaced the thermocouple but still won't stay lit (nor will it kick the upper burner on).

    I have a comfort glow Natural gas vent less heater and it will not stay lit either. I tried vacuuming it out in case of dust or lint. I thought maybe there was air in the line. Now i am wondering if there is not enough gas pressure or a gas leak....

Coleman heater model 5445c700 propane camp heater wont light. It did work fine. When I hold the knob in the light position you can hear gas but it barely ignites then goes out. I've tried new gas and...


If you're using a 20lb propane tank (Gas Grill Tank), that may be the problem. Turn off the propane tank at the tank valve and disconnect it from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reattach the heater hose to the tank. Turn the propane tank valve on very,very slowly until it's all the way open. Try lighting your heater now. If the pilot flame height returned to normal, that was the problem.

FYI - The Thermocouple has nothing to do with the length of the pilot flame. It's a safety feature that stops the gas if the pilot flame goes out for any reason.

Hope that solves your problem. Please let me know.

sounds like you have a blocked pilot injector. normally part of the pilot head. if you can remove it , blow it out with compressed air but it must be removed from the pilot head. commonly known as a Pilot restrictor,Pilot spud or Pilot injector

I bought a comfort glow vent-less space heater model # CJ18NL. It had a natural gas valve on it and the guy said I could put on a propane valve, which I did. It's not lighting. Is this model only good...


According to the Comfort Glow Website, this is a Natural Gas unit. If you use propane you will need
a minumum 100# LP Cylinder and a pressure regulator. I have a Comfort Glow unit and went through the same process.

If you have it hooked up to a 30lb cylinder without a regulator I would think that if you purged the gas line
of air you should be able to light the pilot.

On a new unit you can expect to push the spark ignitor button at least a dozen times while holding
down the gas valve button.

Good Luck

If you have a pilot, you have a thermocouple. I would start with the thermocouple. The thermocouple is supposed to be heated by the piolet and to keep the pilot gas on. If it is faulty, the pilot will quit and the heater will not reignite until you light it again. Good luck...Lee

Have Model CGP30TB Copmfort Glow propane heater. Pilot light won't stay lit. Flames also coming from what seem to be air vents just below flame on pilot light.


sounds like an obstruction in pilot assembly.try using canned compressed air to blow directly into pilot. this technique is successful about 70%. if not,pilot assembly must be removed and cleaned thorougly

Pilot light will not light


you should have to push the dial or a seperate button in to manually open the pilot gas valve. If you find this not to be true and you have a spark either the pilot burner assembly needs to be pulled and cleaned.

Pilot light keeps going out


Dan, Since you just had the tank filled and the heatewr installed a tinty piece of trash could have entered the pilot orfice. Un do the lower floor panel take off the pilot assy. Blow out the small pilot orfice. Blow reverse from normal gas flow to unlodge the debre. Re asemble and light.
If this dosen't work It may be the pilot air intake is too open causing the pilot to blow itself out.If thats the case close off the air adjustment some. It will be located behind where the flame exits the pilot orfice.

LOL.... your fuel is not boiling.... the closer propane gets to its vaporization point (-44%F) the less vapor it produces. clean the snow off of the 100# or lay it on its side to give it more surface area for vaporization.
