Richmond gas hot water heater. After I light pilot and main burner why does it flame out in 15 seconds?


If you had to light the main burner manually, something is wrong. Once you light the pilot and it stays lit, the flame heats the thermocouple to open the gas valve and fire the main burner. Either or both of the components you replaced could be defective.

Laars pool heater's burner wont stay lit


Check the burner, the holes may be plugged, especially at the beginning of the season. Same happens to the pilot light tube. Spiders love to make nests inside those small holes clogging everything up.

Gas burner wont stay lit


Is it the Pilot, or the main burner that won't stay lit?

The pilot has a little 'flame rod' in the path of the pilot flame, that conducts a tiny current thru the flame, to a detection circuit-- assuring that there is a pilot flame-- If that rod get's dirty, it can cause false trips. Is that any help?- Mack B

Hot water tank doesn't stay on


Suspect the thermocouple that senses that the pilot is lit. This device prevents the gas burner from coming on when if the pilot goes out, but if it's defective could cause the burner to shut down even when there is a pilot flame. Also check the position of the thermocouple in relation to the pilot flame. The tip of the thermocouple should be right in the middle pilot flame.

The pilot won't stay lit on gas hot water tank.


Make sure thermocouple tip is seated inside the burner flame.
Make sure thermocouple is not overtightened. Finger-tight + 1/4 turn.
If the pilot lights, then ECO energy cut off is not tripped, but gas control valve might be bad.
Check color of pilot flame: it should be strong and clear blue.
If pilot flame is weak, or color of flame is yellow-orange: Clean pilot orifice and burner and combustion parts on yearly basis.
Clean air intake screen if applicable.
Increase air supply to water heater. Open a window and see what happens.
Check for adequate draft going up chimney using match under vent hood to see if smoke drafts immediately upwards.
Bleed air out of gas line.
Check gas pressure.

Pilot lite does not lit please advise what to do.the burner stays on if lit directly with open flame.is this dangerous.


What you describe is typically caused by a faulty thermocouple. The thermocouple senses the heat from the pilot light and TURNS OFF the pilot when it no longer senses the heat.
When the thermocouple turns off the pilot, it's not necessarily dangerous, but the water heater won't turn on without help.

We change the burner for the water heater, it stay li ari=ound 35 minutes, heat the water and after is turning on completely, even the small flame don't stay lit. What we need to do?


you mean it is only staying on for 35 minutes, if this is the case, then readjust or replace thermal coupling, if bad it will not sense the flame or pilot light. it has to be in pilot light flame as to work properly. ( this is for a gas hot water heater). if bad it will shut gas off to heater.

Pilot won't stay lit


What color is the pilot flame? Yellow/orange or blue? Look at the tip of the thermocouple where the pilot flame is heating. It should be a smooth round tip. If the tip is partially burn't off or ridgid, replace the thermocouple. After the pilot is initially lit, does the burner come on too? Take a flashlight and look up inside the water heater above the burner. Do you see a lot of soot build-up? Light a match at the top of the water heater at the draft diverter (it attaches the venting to the water heater) and blow it out and see if the smoke gets sucked into the diverter or blown out. It should get sucked in. If not you may have vent blockage or soot build-up.
