    so damage would only occur if I turned the pilot screw correct...and the throttle stop knob just makes the idle run slower or faster correct...thanks steve

You don't have to keep it at the factory setting, it's one of those things you're allowed to adjust as you please, for the most part. If it's pretty close to where you had it before, it'll be fine. You don't want the idle too low, though... that could cause oil starvation problems.

Electric went off the control panel is dark and no hot water


It sounds like you have electronic ignition for your burner and not a gas pilot. If it's an electric water heater than the problem is probably similar. There is a small transformer that interfaces with the knob that controls the water temperature. Sometimes they need a reset. Turn off the breaker , wait a few seconds, and than turn back on. If it's a gas pilot type it still has a transformer but the breaker trick may not be the solution...though it doesn't hurt to try. If this is the case you may need to relight the pilot. Follow the instructions located normally just above the water temperature control knob

I accidently turned the pilot off and I can't get it to turn on Williams Model# 2001622


Turn the control valve to the PILOT position and push down and hold it in. Press the Ignitor Button and continue to hold the Control knob down, once the pilot lights. Wait one minute, release the Control Knob and if the pilot remains burning, turn the Control Knob counterclockwise to the ON Position. If after the burners light and burn for a few minutes, you can turn the Control Knob back (Clockwise) to the Pilot position (if you don't want the heater to come on automatically) and the pilot should remain lit.

Hope this helped to get you back up and burning.

My empire wall furnace does not ignite. It has gas flowing because the pilot is light, i have changed the thermostat and wired it two different ways in case I reversed them. What is next? Could it be the...


It could be several things: Is the Control Knob turned from Pilot to ON? If that is the case, wait a few minutes after turning it to ON. That will allow the Thermopile to heat up sufficiently. Be sure the flame is touching the Thermopile. If everything looks correct turn up your Thermostat to higher than the ambient room temperature and see if the burners light. Remember to turn your Wall Thermostat down to the lowest temperature setting before turning the knob from Pilot to ON.

FYI - That Wall Furnace does not have a Thermocouple. It uses a Thermopile instead to generate millivolts of electricity to open the gas valve and maintain the pilot flame.

If it is the Thermopile, you can order it directly from Empire Comfort Systems, as well as download your Owners Manual at www.empirecomfort.com
