Hello. Two things are possible. If your pilot is ok after lighting, and it goes out only when you additionally turn on the thermostat, most likely your thermopile is internally shorted, and is able to produce enough voltage to actuate the pilot portion of the valve, but opening the main part via the thermostat requires more load than the thermopile can produce, thus it now drops out the entire circuit.
The other is that your pilot is dirty, and is not heating the thermopile to a adequate temperature, to again, be able to handle the load of the entire circuit, as the thermopile is the only thing producing voltage/current for the heating circuit, thus no outlet to plug it into etc.. you could have loose/dirty connections, or low gas pressure, or one of the wires of the circuit is touching the frame, however, those are less likely from the problem you describe, not impossible, but less likely.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

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 lite won't stay lit


Thermostat flame sensor. Do you see a little rod next to the pilot? That is what tells the main gas valve that the pilot is lit and it is safe to give gas. Easy swap, and you can usually just pick up a generic one.

Hi there.
The thermostat will only shut down burner flame but not pilot flame.
Try tightening all wiring connections.
By using an ohm meter, check the continuity across the hi limit terminals when the pilot goes off, your hi limit may be tripping prematurely causing pilot flame to shut down.
Regards.

Why does pilot light turns on gas burner only to have it go out about 10 seconds later? 30 to 40 sec later repeats,without lighting. What is problem? once in awhile, it will light..not often. The burner...


Hello
Sounds like the thermocouple is going bad.The thermocouple is a thin tube that runs from the pilot lite to the gas valve.
What it does is it sences the heat from the pilot lite and keeps the gas valve open to allow the pilot to stay on.
This can be easily repaird by shutting off power and gas to your heater and removeing the thermocouple from the gas valve,then unclip or unscrew it from the pilot lite area.
Any plumbing supply store or home depot or lowes should have these.

Once you get a new one,install to gas valve and pilot lite area then turn on power and gas to heater and follow pilot lighting procedure,you may need to hold gas on for 60 seconds.

Here is a picture of the thermocouple so you know what to look for.

Fryer lights off, but won't turn off when the thermostat is turned to the off position


The pilot flame will stay lighted even when the thermostat is off, you have to turn the gas valve knob to off position in order to shut the pilot flame.
But when burner flame remains on after shutting off the thermostat, the thermostat's mechanical contacts are shorted or remained engaged. If this is tha case, you have to replace the thermostat.

Internittent gas valve shut off. Thermostats working properly, 24vac from transformer, controller ok, pilot light working properly, ground wire intact. Runs a minute or two a shuts off.


Check to see if thermocouple is positioned properly. It should be in direct contact with the pilot flame. This adjustment is made by loosening the screw that holds that end of the thermocouple and adjusting it or by bending the bracket a little. The pilot flame is also adjustable, look on the gas valve and you should see pilot adjust, you may have to increase the pilot flame. If this doesn't fix probably faulty gas valve. Hope this helps.

Gas furnace does not work


Simple things first. Is the gas turned on? Some furnaces have a gas line fitting to shut off during summer months. The gas valve should line up in the direction of the gas line. Two: is the pilot lighting. Can you see a flame? It may also have an electronic igniter. When it comes on you should see a glowing hot stick or something similar in the pilot viewing hole. If you have a combination valve for you pilot. You must first turn it to pilot, hold it in and light it manually. Hold that button in until the pilot stays lit, then trun it to "on". If the thermostat is in the "heat " position and the thermostat is set to call for heat by turning the emo up higher than the current room temperature, the main flame should come on. Otherwise something complex is wrong with your system

Your problem is the pilot generator where the flame is by the burners. This needs to be repalced. That is what is causing the pilot to go out and not start. It is a flame sensor and also tells the gas valve when to release more or less gas.

Furnace pilot problem


check the pilot gas pressure, might be too weak and blowing out when the blower starts, the clicking noise is the gas valve shutting down when it detecks no pilot flame, that park is normal.

Rheem gas furnace pilot lights, but no burners or fan


If the burners do not fully ignite, the sensor will shut the furnace down. The lack of sufficient burner flame is a gas valve or gas pressure problem within the valve.
Replacing the gas valve with the original one may get you going. I surely suggest a professional service company for safety reasons and a thorough inspection. A 20 year old furnace is past it's normal life span.
