Answer: 
It sounds like you need to replace the thermocoupling. They are easy to replace, using a small open end wrench. You can purchase a replacement coupling at Home Depot. I suggest you bring the old one with you, since they are available in several different lengths.

Answer: 
Mine does the same. You have to let the line bleed after the initial light up. Hold the knob in for a few extra seconds, then move to the desired setting. I figured this out through trial and error. Seems to help remedy the situation.

Answer: 
Only in California :) There are no quick disconnects supplied with these units. Typically the male hose end that is threaded screws into the female end of the quick disconnect on the tank. All quick disconnects are designed this way because not all tanks are used on grills only.

Answer: 
There is no documentation to suggest that it does but whenever it will not start or whenever it automatically shuts off, I open my garage door to let fresh air in and it works fine after that. I have a carbon monoxide detector in my three car insulated garage and it has never detected any high levels. I do not have a CO2 detector.

Answer: 
There is no documentation to suggest that it does but this would be the only explanation I can think of for why it shuts off for no reason or will not start for no apparent reason. When this happens, I open my garage door for a few seconds to let in fresh air and it works just fine.

Answer: 
Yes, nothing else is needed. Keep in mind that this heater does have the older style POL connector fitting rather than the newer style ACME fitting. BUT, the newer (since 2000 or so) ACME cylinder valves have external right hand AND the old style internal left hand threads so they ARE backwards compatible with the POL coupler fittings.

Answer: 
No. Your propane tank can take both the external or internal screw on type hose. Look at the propane tank's brass receptacle, inside and outside - you should see threads in both areas.
The new heater you're looking at uses the internal threads.
you don't need an adapter

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 115 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Propane Heater! Powerful, Portable and Safe & Easy to use I've purchased quite a few electric heaters over the years to warm our 20x20 garage in the winter. I was always disappointed in the output and all of them seemed to quit working prematurely. I needed a heater that was 1. Powerful - that would quickly heat my space 2. Portable - to use in emergencies or while outdoors 3. Mechanical - simple moving parts that won't break 4. Efficient - use a relatively cheap fuel source. 5. Safe & Easy. The Dyna-Glow 80,000 BTU Portable Convection Tower Propane Heater RMC-LPC80DG exceeded my expectations and can heat up my garage in a matter of minutes allowing me to either shut it off of turn it all the way down and conserve fuel. I would caution that when turning the starter and igniting the pilot the for the first time it may startle you, but no need to worry as the flames stay tucked inside the canister. Also, be sure and hold the starter knob down while igniting the pilot for a 1-2 seconds even after it lights to ensure it is fully lit. I've done a lot of research and believe that for the price this heater is an exceptional value compared to the plug and heat models. January 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for a two car garage! I purchased this heater to heat my uninsulated garage. The garage is around 600sf with 2 uninsulated garage doors and no insulation in the walls. This heater warmed it up from 28 degrees to 80 degrees in 8 minutes on the highest setting. After reaching 80 degrees i adjusted the selector to the lowest setting and it held the temp at 80. I only wish the hose was a little longer so it could be connected to a 100 lb tank and have enough hose to get under the garage door and get the heater far enough from the inside of the garage door. The supplied hose measures 10 feet. A 15 to 20 ft hose would be nice. Overall i would highly recommend this heater. January 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth the money I purchased this product a few weeks ago to use in my wood working shop that I have been building. I use to have a torpedo style propane heater and it worked very well. But I really like how much quieter this style is comparatively to the other. It does seem to use more propane though than the torpedo heater. It may just be because of the temperature outside, it has been in the low teens the past couple of weeks? Also the igniter doesn’t want to work as the temperatures fall closer to zero degrees. So bring some long matches? Other than that, I have no complaints, it does what it’s supposed to do. December 12, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Heat and dump If you need temporary heat for short periods at a time, buy this,it will get the job done. If you are like me and need this for a contacting job, be prepared to return the product when the thermostat breaks down. This heater will keep you warm at full blast/daily use for about 2/3 months and then it will die and you can not get replacement parts, I'm on my second one this season. I gave it 3 stars because it works, just no long life! But spend extra $$ if you want something for commercial use! March 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works for my space... Easy to assemble. The only cons are that it sucks gas and you need to keep your space well ventilated. Which helps to defeat the purpose in cold weather. Other than that it kicks heat out great. 1500 sq ft garage and it stays toasty. January 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Heater For the Price After my 35 year old heater died, I went and purchased this one. I am very pleased with it. It is adequate to take the chill out of small work spaces. Don't expect to be in your skivvies when it's 25 degrees out and your trying to heat 2000 sq. ft. It will keep you comfortable. If it's crazy cold out ( 0 degrees like it's been lately) Then don't expect to get to toasty and break a sweat. Running this unit on high, non-stop, will suck down a 20lb. tank in no time; it's meant to keep your work zone/area tolerable. It all depends on the area you want to heat ( smaller the better), the level of insulation in the structure and how cold it actually is both outdoors and in. I like this propane type heater over any kerosene type unit because I think there is much less odor and the fuel is easier to deal with. January 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome! Started this little puppy up when it was 9 degrees out and within an hour, it was 72 in my garage. It is insulated but no drywall or roof insulation. Also garage doors aren't sealed. If you need heat quick, this is where it's at. A little propane thirsty but that's expected. I just run it at the lowest setting. March 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Everything I Wanted My only experience with propane heaters was a single round unit that sat on top of the propane tank. That unit caught fire last night and I made this purchase today. The volume of flames concerned me regarding working with sawdust, chemicals, and loose clothing. Flames often protrude the top. Everything is working out fine. I did burn some arm hairs during the first ignition. Of course, I never read the instructions. I now wear a bbq glove with fireproof gaunlet. I would recommend keeping your face low and at a distance upon ignition. I'm using a 100 lb tank that is estimated to last a month of Saturdays at full blast. December 5, 2015
