Answer: 
For what it's worth, our problem was solved when we took it all apart and cleaned, then made sure to set pilot at 9pm not 11pm (where the word pilot is located). Then yes, definitely took much longer than 30 seconds for thermocouple to get hot enough for main flame to light. Thanks for the advice here!

Answer: 
Same problem with mine. I purchased a new thermocouple and replaced it, but it still would not stay lit. The problem with my unit turned out to be the anti-tilt switch which is the electrical part of the thermocouple circuit.
Good luck, Dutch

Very likely, you are having a problem with your thermocoupler. As a safety precaution, gas appliances have a small sensor that detects the presence of a flame. when the flame goes out, the gas is cut off.
This is why you have to hold the priming button down for a few minutes. The sensor has to get hot in order to produce the proper signal and keep the gas line open.

Very likely, you are having a problem with your thermocoupler. As a safety precaution, gas appliances have a small sensor that detects the presence of a flame. when the flame goes out, the gas is cut off.
This is why you have to hold the priming button down for a few minutes. The sensor has to get hot in order to produce the proper signal and keep the gas line open.
Sometimes, the sensor goes bad, sometimes it slips so that it is not positioned directly in the flame.
In the case of a bad sensor, you can usually buy a replacement at a hardware of plumbing store. They are used in gas appliances such as water heaters and some gas stoves.
In the case of one that is slipped out of place, loosen the screws holding it into place and reposition it directly in the flame.

Answer: 
Howdy Bob,
The first thing to check would be the regulator having a leak, the second would be thermocoupling defect, and lastly the regulator being loose or full of air in the line.
Another test would be to spray soapy water on the line that take the propane from the tank to the heater. Again, make sure it is tight.
Happy Heating,
Coach Dave

Definitely don't use this in a garage. As for running ducts off your existing heating system.......although a creative idea, it is also dangerous as well as a strain on your existing system. Dangerous because the exhaust from your cars will leak through the system but so will any other smells in your garage. Possibly strain your system because if the system was sized for you home correctly the extra airflow requirements may cause your system to fail much sooner not to mention, reduce air flow to the main home. You're obviously doing your research so I'm sure you will or have figured out the best method. If not, it doesn't cost a dime to get an estimate from a reputable heating and a/c company. You can take their ideas and do it yourself. Hope this helps. Read Less

Assembled per instructions and unable to light. Tube from the tank OK, gas coming out although not going the pilot apparatus to the top pilot light. followed the directions, holding the knob down 30 seconds (even longer) and attempted the ignition switch but not lighting. took the top off and continued to trouble shoot, no gas is getting from the propane connector through to the top. Attempted to light pilot using grill lighter to bypass ignition switch, still unable to light. Problem must be in the pre-assembled pilot apparatus.

Eric is correct. You need to turn the knob to the 9 oclock position and hold for 30 seconds to purge the initial air and get the propane to flow enough for the ignitor to lite the pilot.

Answer: 
It states in the manual to turn the knob to the "Pilot" setting and push down the knob for at least 5 minutes. This is definitely the case with this heater and may require pushing down the red ignitior button a few times before the pilot flame stays on. Once you see the pilot flame on, just turn the knob on high and presto; a nice and consistent source of heat! Enjoy!

Answer: 
It will absolutely not have a 15ft radius where you can feel the heat. Maybe 5ft and that's pushing it while on the highest flame setting. Not to mention, the propane gas will run our within 2 to 3 hours on the highest setting. I suggest getting the electric version of this heater and use 2 heaters to cover 15 ft.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 350 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heating it up on those chilly nights I purchased this heater and I feel in love with my backyard. Just what I needed. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heart Warming Value We've been using this heater outside, under a pergola in our outside dog training arena to provide a "cone of heat" for our volunteers. It's not a contained area, but that's what this is for. It work's wonderful and is easy for all to use. It's really efficient too...we're still on the first tank of propane after several weeks...although it's not used everyday. It has started quickly and easily in sub-Zero temps. It was easy to put together too. I highly recommend this as a great value for the money - I paid $99 bucks for this as an impulse buy as I was checking out and am glad I did. January 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great price, great product The product was delivered to my front door. Easy to assemble, I had both of mine together in less than an hour. I have one for upstairs and one for down stairs patio. They throw off great heat. I found that if I run the ceiling fans on low it moves the heat around the patio better. We enjoy them on these cold nights, sitting outside to have a glass of wine. I told my neighbor about them and he ran out and got one. December 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Great product.. works very well. very sturdy and at a great price June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Fantastic! Works fantastic, puts of an excellent amount of heat (ensure it's got good clearance on top and sides, as it gets extremely hot, which is good!), lights VERY easily. June 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by So poorly made that we returned it The materials used in this heater are of such low quality that we returned it before even using it. The top shield is so lightweight that it bent under the weight of the cover - the cover that was sold separately but designed specifically for this unit. I cannot speak to how it works since we never got past assembling it. June 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great heater @ a very reasonable price 7' stainless steel patio heater for $99. Couldn't beat the price. It's a great value, even if you have to pay the list price ($159.95). Very easy to assemble. Very good quality .... sturdy .... I have it on the deck next to my hot tub. Keeps the towels and robes warm during these cold months in NE. BONUS: Melts the snow on the stairs from the upper deck to the lower hot tub deck!!! Would recommend this to anyone looking for a good quality patio heater. NOTE: The first time you light it ... be patient ... you'll think something is broken ... takes about 20 pushes of the igniter to light the pilot ... after than ... piece of cake.... January 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EXCEEDS MY EXPECTATIONS Needed to replace a $200 patio heater I bought 4 years ago. Was hesitant to purchase this one because of the low price and some of the comments I read. Glad my intuition won and I purchased it. It was easy to assemble (and I am a 65-year-old female), it is very attractive and, once I realized that the pilot knob needs to be turned all the way to the stopping point, it lights the first time, every time. I spend a lot of time outside, so I turn it on more than 5 times a day. It puts out great heat so, unless it is 30 degrees or less outside, I turn it to a lower position and don't use as much propane. Very happy with this heater. January 9, 2013
