    Sorry, not familiar with your heater,so this is just general advice,..

    You say you have plenty of gas, have you proved that by lighting the cooker burners.. a failing gas regulator may pass some gas but not enough for the heater..

    If that's ok, then it could be the gas valve in the heater, bad/corroded connections, NO 12v supply, (check fuses) , failed circuit board .. it's almost impossible to say without checking it over..

    For advice, this company should be able to help, the guy is called Gary, give him a call or email ..http://www.arcsystems.biz/

    they also have a help forum.. http://community.preloved.co.uk/forums/discussion/8909

    I suppose you're on propane and not butane? It's a bit colder than a month ago. :Smile:

    Possibly the thermo couple if its not gas too cold.

    Make sure it is correctly positioned in the flame
