Disadvantages

Using products that run on propane can pose certain health hazards if care is not taken. Because the heater uses gas to generate heat, igniting it will require the use of a lighter with a long nozzle; using a match or a small lighter can cause burns.

If the pressure of the gas is too strong, the heater can flare and cause the metal grills to be burned. Users should take note that working with gas requires care and observation of recommended safety measures

The pressure on the gas tank and the amount of gas left in the tank will affect the heater. If there is too little gas, the heater will not stay lit. The gas inside the tank moves which can also affect the flow to the lamp, and may shut off if not placed on a level surface.
