Customer Questions & Answers

unable to get unit to light, propane not getting to the pilot

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.

Pilot will light but heater will not stay on soon as I turn it to on flame goes out

Asked by: Bob
The thermocouple located right at the pilot light is bad. The thermocouple detects heat once the pilot light warm up the thermocouple tip and allows gas to continue flowing to the pilot light and the main heater after the round rotational switch is no longer pressed. That is why as soon as you release the pushbutton starting round knob, the pilot light goes out, but it will relight as long as the round knob is pushed in.

41,000 BTU Stainless Steel Propane Patio Heater is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 411.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Problem with Pilot Light I bought this unit several months ago (great price) and had problems lighting it, even after several tries (absolutely followed the directions). I tried it again for a Super Bowl party and I couldn't get a flame. After several attempts, I got the pilot to start, but EVERY time I tried to shift the control knob to "min," the flame would extinguish. I followed the the troubleshooting guide (of minimal use). I had a refreshly filled gas tank and cleaned all areas. Nice looking unit at a great price, but a heater that won't heat is worthless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect The only drawback to this unit is that the regulator assembly is straight off the tank and therefore causes chaffing of the gas hose when the body is lowered. It should have had a 90 degree elbow off the tank which would have prevented that. Assembly was about an hour and it fired right up. Great unit for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tall Patio Heater We love using this product. Was very happy with product and easy to put together. We use this quite often and the heat area is wider than I thought so it's nice that you don't have to actually be sitting right under it! Very inexpensive compared to other heaters I had looked at. Might be buying another one for the other side of the patio :) We truly enjoy this on the patio for morning coffee and in the evening for watching TV on the back porch...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheap parts, cheap materials, cheap price Bought one yesterday in a last minute emergency type situation. It operates as advertised, but I would caution that the quality is very poor. The materials are light weight and the hardware is cheap. I do not anticipate this will last more than one season. Be forewarned not to overly tighten the bolts. I have about medium experience working with tools/projects like this and I stripped a bolt with minimal pressure. It is the lowest cost option out there and just know what you're getting into. In a year, if you're lucky, you will probably need to spend $200+ to replace it with a decent quality heater.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Incredibly quiet and efficient Purchased this patio heater for our barn and it works splendidly. It's very quiet and puts out just the right amount of heat. The only negative aspect is that sometimes it's difficult to start with the electronic sparker, but if you just turn off the gas for a minute and retry, it starts up every time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pilot light trouble. REALLY hard to light the pilot. Have used it only 3 times in nearly two years because it has been nearly impossible to get the pilot to light. Very disappointed in the product. I certainly would not buy one ! We received this as a gift.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Problems When you can light it, it works great. But as mentioned in an earlier review I simply cannot get mine to light, and I've only used it a dozen times and just three months... Very marginal on the quality in my opinion

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot beat this heater for the price! Heater was easy to put together. All parts were there and heater worked first try. Gives out an adequate amount of heat and will extend the use of our patio in the cooler evenings. It even comes with a cover! The only minor criticism is that there are no wheels to move it around. For $99 it was such a good deal that I bought two!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only lasted 1 year (season) My neighbor and I each bought these last year, and used them in the spring/fall. They did the job, could be a little slow to light sometimes, but I was always to get mine fired up. The failure came over the winter when I came outside to see both of mine snapped in two where the pole meets the base. Upon closer inspection it is simply a poorly made product in this area. The weld was weak, and quickly rusted out. I've been trying to work with the phone numbers provided in the manual to get replacement parts, but so far no luck. The first replacement they sent me was the wrong size. I'm giving this two stars because it did a good enough job last season, it just wasn't built to last. I guess you get what you pay for in this case!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only works once or twice I purchased one of these units about a year ago. After about a month, it did not work. Took it back and HD replaced it. After using the new unit 2-3 times, gas does not flow to the burners. I took the unit apart, cleaned it, still nothing. Don't waste your money, I cant believe I happen to get 2 lemons.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value, read the directions (they're short!) Works very well. Many users complain that it wont start right away, and then after hitting the ignition 50 times, the ignition breaks. Well, you can avoid both problems by reading the instructions. After hooking up the propane tank and opening the valve, hold the knob down in "pilot" position for at LEAST 30 seconds. Try the ignition once. If it doesnt light, the gas isnt all the way up the hose yet, just wait ten more seconds and try it again. The ignition system is a two prong arc (a super-hot spark jumps from on one to the other) ignition. If you hit the button many times in a row, the prongs will begin to melt, and eventually fail. Thats true for a $500 system, or a cheaper one like this one. I have used mine about ten times, about two hours at a time on average. One tank lasts about 9 hours on a medium-high setting. If you can, store it in the garage, to avoid rust on the screws from moisture. Also, to avoid stressing the metal mesh, turn the heat to low for a minute or two before turning the unit off. If you dont want to take the time to learn the heater to avoid damaging it, dont buy it. Would definitely recommend it so far. My brother in law has one that came out when Home Depot starting selling these (a year and a half ago?) and its still working like new using the above techniques.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Product, Good Value The heater is not difficult to put together. Except for the heat reflector, it is of high quality. The heat reflector could look more substantial, but is no worse than others I have looked and works fine. So far it has worked flawlessly and throws out good heat. There is easy access to the propane tank area by simply sliding up the tank cover and resting it on the supports. It could have wheels to make it easier to move when the propane tank is in it, but I would buy it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from REFUSES TO LIGHT Just bought it for $99 on Black Friday. The assembly instructions are typical poor translation from another language. The quality is less than expected, even at 99 bucks. And finally, after using the photo on the box as a better assembly guide, the thing won't light. Not a problem with my tank - tested it on my barbecue, so thanks for coming out to play but sorry Home Depot, your product is gonna be returned tomorrow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Price, but Poor Quality Have owned this unit for exactly 1 year, and it has a great price and gives out great heat - but quality is poor. As others have mentioned, the regulator sticks straight out from the tank (instead of a 90 degree bend) which makes it impossible to install an inline level gauge as well as kinks the hose majorly against the sliding tank cover. My hose has just begun to leak and availability of OEM regulator and hose assembly is zero. The pilot lighting mechanism works poorly, and requires 20+ (loud) pushes which wakes up the whole neighborhood. I've stopped using it and just keep a butane lighter for the purpose now. Not happy 1 year later.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great You get what you pay for. This has no wheels making it virtually impossible to move around and heat it just ok. If you stand up right next to it you will stay warm. Move a foot away and it might as well not be on.
Date published: 2016-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Very easy to assemble and light weight to move around would be easier if it had wheels but worked great in the winter to keep warm especially out at a ranch. You first have trouble getting it started but once you get it, its easy the next time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pilot light will not light I just bought this on Friday, assembled it yesterday, and after repeated attempts, the pilot light will not light. Even tried a fireplace lighter. Nothing. The tank is good. Used it on the BBQ after giving up on the heater. Judging on the small amount of gas released from the tank when unscrewed, I think it's the regulator. Either way, it's going back. And I'll get one with wheels next time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great for a reasonable price. For the price this is a great patio heater, yes the gas hose should have a 90 degree fitting, but over all easy to assemble with basic tools and skills, and it really puts out the heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from patio heater Last year we bought this heater on black friday at home depot of Edgewood MD. We have used this heater at our open houses and in our 20 x 40 tent that we rent. We will add two more this year and for the money this is well worth the price. You do need to add the tank and it was very easy to put together and to fire up each time. I think we burn for 5-6 hours at a time no problem. We love ours.
