Pilot light won't stay lit on convection heater.

Bought the heater last year and it worked fine. I push the button in to light the pilot light and hold for 30 seconds to a minute. When I let off the button the pilot will not stay lit.

Make sure the gas valve is on. The thermocouple may need to be cleaned in order for the pilot to stay lit.

How do i light the pilot?


Turn the Gas Control Knob inside the heater compartment from OFF to PILOT. Push in the knob and hold it, at the sametime push the ignitor button (will probably be a Red button). Once the pilot lights, continue to hold the Control Knob down for one minute. Then ease off of it. If the pilot stays lit, turn the Control Knob to the ON position. The burner should light, if the Thermostat is set higher than the ambient temperature in the house. If the Ignitor button doesn't work, you can match light the pilot. Just be careful and follow the instructions above, once it's lit.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

Pilot will not light


The Pilot indicator will appear to line up with the arrow on the base, and even push in as though allowing gas to flow, but if it is just 1mm out of alignment, no gas will flow. So the solution is to move the valve in the Pilot mode slightly in one direction or the other to see if/when gas flows.

Pilot light won't stay lit


Look for dust and lint. Look for them in places where gas should be freely flowing. I had a similar problem with an Empire Corcho wall-mounted propane ceramic catalyst heater. First it was the pilot light, then the #2 ceramic mantle. After horsing around with the gas lines and pressure regulators and trying to re-aim the pilot, it all turned out to be dust and lint in the gas passages. A little dust bunny in the brass pilot tube gave me a pilot light the shape and color of a banana. One puff of compressed air, and I got back my razor-sharp pilot. And some dust in the chimney of the #2 burner kept it burning blue/yellow and blistering paint off the upper surfaces of the heater. A bit of cleaning with a shop-vac put that right. "Passive" heaters are very much prone to this sort of problem because they rely on convection currents (i.e. LOW velocity) to get the job done. Convection currents are notorious dust collectors, as in COBWEB CITY.

Unable To Keep Pilot Light Lit!


I have a Williams top vent gravity wall furnace (model 5009622) and I had the same problem. I had to take the cover off the furnace -- screw on top and two at the bottom (open the access door and there is one screw on each side) to get to the reset button for the vent safety shutoff system. On my furnace it's on the left side toward the top of the unit. I pressed the little red reset button and it's been working ever since. If your furnace is properly installed and doesn't have bird's nest in the chimney, it should work fine. Good luck!
