I know you don’t know much about the Mr Buddy heater, but maybe you know about the flame on these type heaters. I have an old one over ten years old. I had to take it apart last year and soaked the orfices. I did get the pilot to light and turned it on low. The flame seems to be dancing all around the ceramic grating. The grating turns red at the top and starts down, all the while the flame is dancing. Then it seems to concentrate on a space a little above and to the left of the pilot light (which is in the center). I turned it off, and it left black carbon stains where the flame was concentrating. It was producing heat, but I shut it off because of the abnormal flame. Do you have any idea what is going on? Could I have damaged the main orfice? All I did was soak it.
I was searching, for a portable heater that wasnt heavy and complicated to take outdoors for my daughters softball games in the winter. The Mr Big Buddy heater does just that. Produces good heat at high from about 2 feet away and the 2 propane canister is lasting more than 4 hours, may be longer since I still havent changed it. The cool down process is minimal. Great overall product
