Propane torpedo heater not working

Posted by elvis_presley (My Page) on

I have a Mr. Heater 75-125k BTU propane heater.
It fires-up and works while the fuel, (or start) button is depressed, but shuts off as soon as it is released. (I know you are supposed to hold the button down for at least 15 seconds and i do.)
What do you think is wrong with it and where should i buy the part?

You need a thermocouple. Hardware stores carry them.
