Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PJSfromMD Great Heater - Just DONT use the knob!
Like several others, the knob on my previous single burner heater broke. With the exception of the knob, these heaters work well. You can get a replacement by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, (they replaced mine for free). As advised in another review, set the knob and high and then leave it alone. From then on, just always use the LPG tank shutoff to control the output.
This double unit heater produces a lot of heat. I mostly use it in my garage and out on my patio. It keeps me warm in sub-freezing temps (except when windy). If you like your eyebrows, make sure you put a lit flame on the burner BEFORE pressing the gas button to ignite the burners.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 THIS BRAND IS GARBAGE
I Use to have an older version of this made by another brand and the product lasted for about 4 years. It was time to replace the old one because the screen mesh was falling apart after all the use. I bought this one, since is the new version of the previous one and in the first month the shut off safety valves sometimes take a minute to warm up. Now the temperature adjust valve, which is a piece of plastic garbage in metal is broken and my unit no longer works. Will cost me at least 30 dollars to fix it myself with a replacement which might only last for another 3 months of use. Dyna-glo should be embarrassed to make such garbage, when I know they can make better.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Nice features but on/off knob will break easily!
I have purchased 3 double burners and 1 single burner. I have returned 1 double burner because it quit working after one day. I returned the single burner because the control knob broke off after about 4 uses. The design of the control knob is really terrible. Just two little wrap around tabs that hold it on. It will break easily! There really aren't many choices for tank top heaters in this price range. I have to admit the heater does work very nicely. Having the ability to use 1 or both heating elements with 3 heat settings (sort of!) and being able to swivel (a bit) is really useful!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pebbles2 Regulatro Asssembly faulty
These heaters are great. the swivel top is a big added plus.
However if you buy this product you'll need this part number.17314. It's the number for a new replacement regulator.
I have 4 of these and the regulator has broken and been replaced on all, after someone who doesn't know about this flaw trys to turn it off. Warning, if you don't want to buy a new regulator ($15 ) only turn it on and off at the tank valve. Don't try to use the 3 position, valve on the supply hose. Mr. Heater, Dyna Glow, or SunRite, They are all the same. There aren't many substitutes

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Steve this product performs well but quality is very bad
this heater is very efficient but has several flaws, the rivets that hold it together get hot and break after only a month of usage and the plastic knob that controls the gas flow broke after only a month of use, good heat poor workmanship

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hammie Stopped working after 13 months
One of the burners doesn't stay lit. The instruction manual says replace the thermocouple or replace tilt switch or replace the gas valve assembly. However it does't provide any suggestions on how to determine what is wrong, so I'll have to order all three and put them on one at a time, then remove the two unnecessary parts and hope that CSA will refund their price. What a pain!
What I'm actually going to do is throw it in the trash and shop elsewhere.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cheesegrits Low quality but does the job
If you are looking for a contractor grade unit, look elsewhere. if you just need something for occasional home use that will pump out heat like crazy and last forever on a tank, get it. Just read the reviews, understand what you are getting, and be careful with the plastic knobs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by heaterhater luck of the draw
I purchased this same product from Lowes. It worked perfect for about a week then started acting up. I returned it & purchased one at HD. It worked perfect for he first few days.... and still works better than the other one but read the reviews. You'll find about 50% are very happy and the other hate it.
When the product works, it can't be beat. When it acts up, you want to BEAT IT!
You'd think by 2012 they could make a heater like this that works all the time.
