Side by side the 2HT and the 3HT there should be no difference in how long it takes to light . 2HT for 8 years and now the 3 HT for 1 1/2 years .@Ymetimme hey timme today i tried my lg 3ht heater, i noticed that it takes time to light this with the new parts, the hose that connects from the propane to the heater is kinda long and i am thinking that when ever i release the valve on the propane tank it takes some time that gas to travel up to the heater and here i am press holding the red button seems for ever by the time it fires up when i am pressing the ignite. how do you do it?
10' 1/2 black gas pipe from the tanks . I shut the gas off at the 3HT and remove tanks (after closing valve) at night when parking in heated garage (furnace in garage). Warmer weather the tanks never come off. Tanks out side in below freezing weather.
Try this : SLIGHTLY Crack open valve at the tank . Wait 3-5 minutes before you fully open it . Try a long reach BBQ lighter instead of the igniter ....if it lights with the BBQ lighter you may have your igniter out of whack.
Operating at true 2GPM now and the heat is blazing and continuous.
Hasn't "froze" again ....so far.
