If you have a Viking, Alfresco, Vintage, or another grill that uses the 9V Spark Generators in the pictures below.

The manufacturer has discontinued them. This means that the available supply will start to dwindle and the cost will go up, for example, Alfresco has them in stock, but the price has gone up from $75.00 to $150.00 each.

I have a source for these same spark generators, my source has told me they should have a supply for the next two years. I will have them available for my customers that have a genuine need. I will not be selling them to the general public.

If you have a grill that uses the spark generators and I service your grill and you actually need a replacement I will sell you one. I will not be selling "back ups".

Portable Patio Heater Service and Repair*
After years of frustration trying to repair patio heaters from Costco, Sam's Club, Home Depot, Lowe's, Target or the internet that are not meant to be taken apart and repaired and parts are difficult or impossible to fine, I no longer service and repair portable Chinese import patio heaters.

I do repair the following brands of portable patio heaters, Patio Comfort and Sunglo
plus the cost of parts. 
second trip (if needed) $50.00 minimum.

If you own a Dayva portable patio heater, Dayva has it's own service and repair program.  Remove the heater head and ship it to Dayva and they will service and repair the heater head and ship it back to you.

If you need me to remove the heater head, ship it to Dayva, and re-install the heater head, I am willing to do that.  The cost is $100.00.

Regularly Scheduled Maintenance $100.00
plus the cost of parts for scheduled maintenance and upkeep on your grill or patio heater.

*The above rates are for service on a single grill or single patio heater. I charge extra $75.00 for each additional patio heater. Repair and servicing rates above do not include damage caused by fire. 

Fire Damage

Fire causes very extensive damage to a grill or patio heater.  The appliance has to be taken completely apart just to diagnose what parts have been damaged and need to be replaced.  The parts have to be ordered, and a return trip is needed to install the parts, leak test and fire test the grill or heater.

Fire Damage Inspection $70.00

Repair Parts

I have access to parts for all major brands of outdoor grills and patio heaters, I also have access to a huge inventory of aftermarket grill parts.
