 My sunflower heater will not stay on and it sometimes starts humming

It will stay lit if I hold in the button but goes out when I release it

Anyone know what is going wrong?

Mine is more like a high pitched scream and will do this for the first 3-4 minutes of running. I light it and let it run while I drill some more holes or it would explode my ear drums. Not sure why it does it, but thankfully it only last for a few minutes. It never goes out on its own though

I agree the thermo coupler need tho be cleaned or replaced, also John R my heater screams alittle when I first start it. i just turn it up to high for a few sec and it will quit and then you can turn it back to low or  whatever setting  you want. see if this helps you always works for my heater.. weird but works

Mine did this. Just had to bend the bracket that holds the thermostat or whatever it is closer to the heat. Now when I light mine I have to hold the plunger in for 7-10 seconds and it stays on.
