After 12 years of use, and admittedly heavy abuse, our Portable Buddy heater just would’t fire up the pilot light. We really didn’t need it this year at all, I was simply going through and cleaning / maintaining all the white gas and propane appliances when this was discovered to be non functional.
I have seen where lots of guys simply throw in the towel on these units when they won’t light, but they are such a simple fix, it is well worth a try. With a street price of $70.00, it’s not a huge loss if you just replace it, but then again, that could cover a new Harbor Freight Pocket Hole jig at full price, AND get you a Starbucks on the way back home. It’s worth a shot.
And like always, I don’t gloss over where I make mistakes. Sorry if you are expecting a video of somebody doing something perfectly. If you are expecting that, find a different blogger / vlogger… I am FAR from perfect!
