Question about Heating & Cooling
SOURCE: I have an older Teledyne
You need to see what what pressure is required to turn the heater on. If you don't have enough flow or pressue, the heater will not ignite. Was it working before?

did you also change out the oriface to the pilot assembly. you have to do that, also do you have a manometer (preferably digital) to check the gas pressure on theinlet and outlet of the gas valve? do this and set it up to the manfacture's recommendations and you should be good to go. Thanks for using Fixya and Merry Christmas!!

I know all too well what the issue is. Sometimes it self corrects and sometimes not - then you take apart the top side of your heater and pull the manifold/tubes. There are rubber gaskets that probably dried out over the winter. You can try to just tighten the manifold cast iron headers to the tube flange but, if you have it this far, just install the new gaskets. Teledyne Laars sells them in a pack of 18.
