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

50K - 80K BTU LP Convection Heater is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 116.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Works great and doesn't put off a terrible smell like so many other heaters.
Date published: 2016-11-10
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Problems with ignition I just purchased this and used it yesterday for the first time with great results. It heated my three car garage from about 50 to 75. I don't recall how long it took but I was able turn it off and since the garage is attached and insulated, it kept it within a comfortable 60 degree range for most of the rest of the day. The real test will come when it gets really cold out. However, today, I spent about 20 minutes trying to get it started and it just would not start. I was preparing to return it to the store when I tried it one more time and it fortunately it did start. I should have paid more attention to the all of the reviews here with regard to ignition problems before purchasing. It would not be so bad if there were a hole in the bottom to insert a long match or lighter but it was not designed for manual lighting even though the ignition problems seem to be well documented in the reviews. Maybe the company can comment on if it is advisable to manually light these along with the proper method. IT IS NICE THAT THE COMPANY IS TROLLING THE REVIEWS ASKING PEOPLE TO CALL THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE NUMBER BUT IT WOULD BE MORE HELPFUL IF THEY COULD POST USEFUL SOLUTIONS HERE SO THAT OTHERS COULD ALSO BENEFIT. THEY MIGHT ALSO SELL MORE UNITS IF PEOPLE HAD MORE CONFIDENCE THAT IT WILL WORK WHEN IT IS SUPPOSED TO. I just will just cross my fingers and hope that it works the third time I try to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from According to Dyna-glo 100# tank required I have had this heater for 15 days, using a 20 or 30# tank. No problems at all the first 10 days. The last couple of days it wouldn't stay on or shut off after a few minutes. This didn't happen all the time, when it did happen it wouldn't stay on until after about 45 min. So it was a sporadic problem. I contacted Dyna-glo, after 42 minutes on hold I was told that I needed a 100# tank. They couldn't explain why it worked for 10 days. They asked if it was cold where I lived as that could be the problem. I told them I used it in my garage and that the garage doesn't get below 45 or 50. I also tried their customer service Web sight. By the time I got the information entered model,serial numbers, my name,phone number, email, and explained the problem it timed me out. The customer service rep was very polite, however made it clear that I should have read the manual as on page 4 it shows the # of 100# tanks needed. In my mind needing 1 or more 100# tanks is not very portable. I am returning the heater tomorrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring on the cold I was using a forced air kerosene heater for about a year and it started having problems. 2nd one to do this. Wont stay running blah blah... Not to mention kerosene at $4 gallon. So my brother had one of these and he brought it out for the weekend. It heated my 800SF garage all weekend on a 20lb tank. It was in the 20's outside and a in the 70's inside. The noise compared too the forced air kerosene is minimal. We also live in a house with all electric heat. Now if the power goes out in the winter, I could take this inside and use as emergency heat without worrying about the fumes with our dogs. If you are looking to heat a garage or shed that you want to spend some hours in over the winter, this is the heater you want. Dont know how I ever did without one!
