Other Common Problems
Make sure that the thermocouple and electrode
are correctly positioned.
The igniter housing has been removed from the
illustration to the right to better show positioning;
however, you should be able to look through
the openings of the igniter housing to verify this
without removing it.
Thermocouple - The thermocouple tip should
be located close to the burner, aligned with a
burn port so that ﬂames contact it directly. Make
sure the ﬂames are making contact with the
Electrode - The electrode is where the spark is
generated to ignite your ﬁre table. Make sure that
you can see this sparking when the igniter button
If the igniter housing and the thermocouple tip are clear of debris and the ﬂame is clearly contacting
the tip of the thermocouple, but the ﬁre table will still not stay lit, the thermocouple may be
damaged. Look beneath the table and ﬁnd the copper thermocouple wire coming out of the back of
the valve. Examine the length of it for any signs of damage. Sharp bends, kinks or damage can cause
the thermocouple to not function correctly. If you ﬁnd damage to the thermocouple contact Real
Flame at 1-800-654-1704 for a replacement.
Clogged or Obstructed Burner
It is common for bugs, especially spiders, to make webs or nests inside of burner tubes. If it seems
like you are getting low or no gas ﬂow, visually check all openings in the burner for signs of clogs. If
you see anything clogging the burner try using compressed air to remove the debris.
Out of Gas
Be sure that your tank is not empty. Low tanks can result in lower ﬂames.
Cold temperatures outside may result in lower tank pressures causing the ﬂames to be lower. Do not
use your ﬁre table in extreme temperature conditions. Allow the temperature of your tank to rise
and as the pressure in the tank increases the ﬂame size will increase. NEVER heat your tank; allow it
to warm up naturally.
Your ﬁre table is designed to operate in winds up to 10 mph. High winds may cause the ﬂame to
blow out. Do not operate your ﬁre table in high wind conditions.
Make sure ﬂame
is contacting this.
You should see this
spark when pushing
the igniter button.
