Sometimes it can take a while to get propane in for the first light after puttin on a new bottle. Even longer if u r runnin a hose off a 20#.try using a lighter to light the pilot,u will see if u got air or propane coming out.

I brought my Buddy heater out of storage and now my pilot will not light?

Spiders get into the pilot tube. Remove the front grill and use cotton tipped cleaner or a pipe cleaner and wet it with alcohol. Push it into the pilot tube a full two (2) inches. Now twist the pipe cleaner around a couple of times and pull it out and blow out the tube with compressed air.

if you are running it off a big tank with a hose, it can take several minutes to purge the line.

just a thought

This /\ if you store them laying on there sides the tip over safety will and does stick on them give it a good shake and it should then light up
