My pilot stays on on my propane furnace but will not light up


The Little Giant units use a Unitrol gas valve very similar to a water heater in the home. #1,urn the Unitrol gas valve to the "PILOT" position to ignite the pilot. Depress the plunger and hold it down then push the spark igniter button until you can see the pilot flame ignite.
You have a lit pilot so this is not a problem for you.
The pilot light stays on continuously by design.
Once the pilot flame is established, you then turn the on/off/pilot valve to the "ON" position and set the thermostat to the desired temperature range., it should then fire its main burner until the desired temperature is reached. Once the temperature is reached, the main burner will shut off and the heater will go into a standby mode with the pilot flame still burning.
If you have turned the pilot valve to on and set the temperature high, it should come on, if not a new gas valve is required, they can be very difficult to replace due to rust.and most cases require a new unit,

Pilot light keeps going out during hot days


Solution is probably better ventilation to gas water heater.
On hot days, heat and lack of ventilation can cause pilot outage.
Hot air causes oxygen molecules to move farther apart, and combustion is no longer supported so pilot goes out.

Pilot light keeps going out


Either the pilot light orfice is dirty, and you will need to pull it out and clean it, or the thermocouple is bad. If the pilot goes out as soon as you let the button go then it is most likely the thermocouple. If the pilot stays lit for a few days or hours then you will need to clean the pilot orfice, heres how:
1 turn off the gas supply
2 unhook the main burner gas line from the thermostat, this is the line that goes to the burner
3 unhook the pilot supply line it is usually next to the main burner line
4 unhook the thermocouple from the thermostat
5 remove the burner assembly
6 take the orfice out of the pilot line and clean it out by blowing thru it, use an air compressor if needed.
7 reassemble and light pilot

Pilot light wont stay onfor outside pool heater. gas co made a service call & relit the pilot light, it went out again 4 days later.


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

Has anyone replaced the pilot generator yet? A millivolt heater (one with a pilot light) requires about .75 volts from the generator to operate. As the generator ages it puts out less and less voltage and eventually gets to weak to even hold the pilot gas valve open. Replacing it with a new generator will usually fix the problem you describe.

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

Pilot light keeps going out


probably need to clean the pilot orfice out. You will have to pull the entire burner assembly to get it out. Pull the tube going to the pilot light out and the orfice will be in the end closest to the pilot light. Once you get it out there might be a white fuzzy substance on it, clean it off, the hole in the orfice is very small, DO NOT make it any bigger, find something to push thru it like a single strand off a wire brush. After cleaning re assemble and re light, this should cure your pilot problems.

Oven pilot went out due to power outage. I don't know where the pilot oven light is. where is the pilot light to light the oven?Ge XL44


pilot over lights do not require power to stay light or should it go out in a power outage! do you have to normally light pilot with a match? if not you have a glow coil and its a electronic ignition range and power will affect it. once power is restored you should just be able to turn on over and everything would be ok.if it is a pilot light you need to remove the bottom door stick arm in to back and you'll see the pilot assembly at back if you look up! hopethis helps...
