Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tip Over switch is actually a "shake" switch I bought this to use in my golf cart. When I read about it I did see that it had a "tip over" switch. However, when I began to use it, I found out that the least little shake will cause the tip over switch to cut the gas completely off. I had to start it again each time that the cart moved. It does heat well and it starts easily but what a bummer that it cuts off with the least little shake. Would be great for a small area heater but it is not good at all for anything where it will be moving, like a golf cart.

How long will the 1 pound cylinder last and does it fit inside the unit?

Asked by: ReneeD
The bottle can last 4 hours.. on high ...give or take. With the variables I recommend to test on a timer to give a dialed in result to determine the number of bottles needed for your use. thanks, Rich Mr Heater

using this in a golf cart can you remove the shut off when bumped to remain on?

Asked by: Spike 61
Thank you for your inquiry. This heater cannot be used in a golf cart and the tip switch cannot be removed. We do however sell a specific golf cart heater that does not shut off when bumped.

I have the mr buddy heater,worked perfect last winter,then put back in the box until now, have it hooked to a 20lb propane tank which I just filled , held pilot knob down repeatedly for 1 to 3 minutes, igniter works but pilot will not lite, what’s wrong?

Asked by: Dale8709
HI Dale, Give the ceramic and pilot tube a blast with canned air. Relight. If that does not work. Dip qtips in alcohol into the tube and let sit for a minute. Look at the behavior of the pilot flame ... does it touch the wire end of the thermocouple? is it curled? is it yellow. continue cleaning until the flame is blue and straight and it will keep the burners on.
