Pilot Light Goes Out

I have a Cozy VC701A-R and It will light and burn fine for a while, but the pilot light will go out when the thermostat cuts off the burners. What can I do to solve this problem?

    I have a timberflame IB35 ETR. When it heats to the right temp and drops back to the pilot lights it will occassionally shut down completely showing error 11. Once this happens it is almost impossible to get restarted. Have had it serviced a couple of times, goes ok for a while then it starts happening again. What can I do. Is there an adjustment I can make?

The VC701 has a safety switch located on the back of he heater that may be tripping after the call for heat is satisfied. Check that there is a good draft by testing with a match. Make sure the flame is drawn toward the vent system when the unit is off and cooling down. Check it at the draft diverter located below where the vent pipe is attached. It is a box with an open bottom. If the draft is not pulling air toward the vent system, the heat from the cooling heater will trigger the safety switch and shut off the pilot. You may have to raise the vent pipe to establish a draft.

I have a Cozy W355D wall furnace. It's difficult to turn on. Replaced the thermostat, that helped some, but still have to turn it off, wait a few minutes, and turn it back on. Often still won't light.

So are you saying the pilot stays lit, but the main burner won't always fire. If this is a millivolt system you could have a weak pilot flame, not getting the pilot generator hot enough or you could have a weak pilot generator. If you are handy you can try cleaning the pilot. It may be better for a qualified service tech.

I would be inclined to look seriously at the gas valve as the source of your problem. First I would check all wiring connections and make sure there is no breakage in the insulation. It's is really hard to say with something that acts differently like that but I would make sure that your pilot flame was good and strong and the thermocouple is as centered in the flames as you can get it. I would also clean burners and pilot light . When burner is on try tapping gently on the valve and main gas line to burners,when you do this the flame shoul burn more orange or yellow and then settle back down. Sometimes you can get tiny particles broke loose and burned on out.
You can bypass the turn over switch but I would only do this for test purposes. Hope this help. Thank you.

in front of the burner it is next to a copper tube(black if it has been burned)! it angles a little towards the copper tube! u turn the knob on gas valve to pilot then hold down and light hold for one minute then turn it to the on position (u might have to push down slightly as u turn the knob) make sure u have thermostat to the lowest setting before u light the pilot so it won't turn on while u have your face too close to the heater then turn your thermostat up to desired temperature when it is on the the on position! Good Luck!!

Noisy pilot light Vulcan Quasar 40

Simply clean out the jet tube with a fine wire, the sound you hear is the gas blowing by the irregular edges, and swirling and not mixing and producing sound waves, (Bit like a flute) So, you need to clean the tube right out, and smooth off the end again, & sorta "Countersink", Flame the end too, at the end.use a very fine needle file, and make it look like new, that will sort your problem out. Then adjust so you have a good gas flow. Also check out it isn't blocked too.

Cozy heater 35000 btu pilot light goes out every 4 days

The thermocouple needs to get red hot. If the pilot flame is too low or too high or if it is not pointed on the thermocouple well, it won't stay hot enough. If the pilot flame is too low, a draft caused by opening a door could blow it out. If correcting this doesn't fix it, it could be a bad thermocouple or control. The factory assembly on these heaters is not the best.
