Re: Pilot goes out

If the pilot won't stay lit, the thermocouple may be loose or faulty, the pilot orifice may be clogged, or the pilot light's flame may be set too low and needs to be adjusted. You can clear a clogged orifice with a piece of thin wire, such as a bread tie with the paper stripped off of it. Be sure to turn off the gas to the furnace first! Also shut off the switch or circuit breaker that controls power to the furnace. Just poke the thin wire into the tiny orifice where the pilot flame normally burns to knock off any ash or debris. Some pilots have a flame adjustment screw for adjusting the flame. To adjust this, refer to your owner's manual. Normally, this is simply a matter of turning the flame adjustment screw to achieve a full, steady 1 1/2-inch to 2-inch flame that doesn't have any yellow in it.

Have a home depot ducane 5 burner. just replaced burner tubes. have never used the rotisserie burner on it before. it lights but won't stay lite after releasing knob...any suggestions? Thanks

Infrared burners requite that the gas control knob be held in for 2 minutes or so, to allow the thermocouple on the infrared burner to heat up completely. If it's windy were you are, the wind can blow the burner out, while trying to light it. That's why it has a thermocouple on it, to stop the gas if the burner goes out. All cooking on the rotisserie is doon with the lid/hood closed, at temperatures around 250 degrees F. Once the infrared burner turns bright red, release the control knob.

Hope this helped you to get it lit. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My living room gas heater will not stayb lit

Try replacing the thermo coupler.There should be a little bulb shaped part(like a pencil eraser) that the pilot light heats up .The other end screw into the gas valve.If this is going bad or has gone bad the pilot light will not stay lit.Most of these are under$10.Well good luck and try to stay warm.

No gas coming out of the pilot tube. Therefore, no ignition. No idea why not. Gas coming out of main gas jet, but not pilot.

sounds like the pilot tube is clogged. Take the pilot tube loose and get a small piece of tubeing and blow out the tube and the orfice of the pilot housing. should fix the problem. If not you may need to purchase new pilot housing and/or lines. Hope that does it.

Pilot light goes out

The Tstat has a capillary that looks like a thermocouple but it isn't, its a bulb with liquid that expands and contracts based on temperature. A pilot can go out due to a high limit switch being week or getting to hot and that can be shaped like a thermostat capillary or can be simply a disc with a button if even there is a high limit on your stove. There likely isnt. So see the next suggestion.
I suggest lighting the pilot, turning on the main burners while watching the pilot. If the pilot shrinks in size, then check your gas pressures before and after turning it on and seeing if there is a wide variation. I would suggest the pilot is dirty or the pressure regulator is faulty.

check thermo coupling., its purpose is to keep heat at flame area-helps keep flame lit,like a pilot light... clean it with a finger nail file LIGHTLY- or use sand paper LIGHTLY, just to clean surface..

Gas Fireplace pilot light continually goes out

You may have a problem with the flame sensing capillary. It may need to be replaced, or it may need to be positioned into the pilot flame better, or you may need a new gas safety valve. Sometime there is an adjustment screw for the pilot which can make the flame bigger or smaller. If will be on the safety valve.
