Pressure in your tank drops with cold; you may need to tent it and provide a moderate heat source to keep up the pressure. Just like tire pressure- drops when cold. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.

Pilot light wont stay lit, even when on high


Pilot lights are supposed to stay on when the flames are burning. If they didn't the flames would go out, because the pilot flame against the Thermocouple keeps the pilot burning. It's a safety feature.

I have a pro heater 50,000 to 80,000 Model # A661767 propane, and when I try to light it it comes on with the button held in but when I let go of the button after one minute it goes out and will not stay...


It sounds like you have a thermocouple problem. Locate the thermocouple and make sure it is in the flame while the pilot is lit. If the pilot flame is weak, try to correct. Some pilots have a small air hole in the tip a short distance back from the flame that can get clogged with dust. Some don't have this hole. Your thermocouple may just need to be cleaned. This can be accomplished with some fine steelwool or emory cloth. Let me know if you have any questions.

Removed Dyna-Glo RMC 1601SS from closet, installed two new propane cylindars, igniter sparks but pilot will not light.


I also just pulled my unit down. Maybe I was lucky. At first it would not light, but I pressed the knob down for almost a minute. I then got a small flame that went out and soon I was able to light the pilot light.

Can i get a new pilot light assembly for a vulcan cx 90 ducted heater


If you can not,do this,take a piece of 3/16 tubing,and cut it to fit over the pilot light,and make sure the tubing is cut long enough to extend into the flame of the pilot light,this will save you money,and time,most of the time the problem with the pilot light is,that it burns away over time,and does not stay into the flame .If this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

Delayed ignition of a Ruud high efficiency upflow 90 plus propane


It sounds like the first thing to do is have burners and pilot cleaned and adjusted so ignitor and pilot flame is close to main burner ignition rail.

The "whoosh" is due to delayed ignition because the pilot flame does not come in contact with main gas.

One more thing that should be tested is the gas pressure and combustable air mixture to be sure it is correct.

It is always best to have a qualified technician do this for you, In many areas the gas supplier with check and safety test this for you.

I have a vent-free Glo warm propane stove (as in fireplace type).Pilot is yellow and stays on enough to get fire going, but then whole thing shuts off. Does it need new part/cleaning?


Hi, and yes it does need to be cleaned. The pilot flame should be a nice strong blue with just a little yellow at the tip.You should have a flame sensor next to the pilot that should be engulfed by the pilot flame.Should be made of ceramic and have a metal rod coming from end into flame. Clean the metal gently with steel wool, not sand paper. Try this to see if it solves the problem and let me know if I am wrong as far as having this sensor. Clean pilot anyway, as flame is not correct.Get back to me, Sincerely,

My therma gas heater will not stay on . It ignits correctly, it also steps up to 3 pannels burning correctly, but you have to hold the grey gas button down for it to work. The pilot-type flame will not...


You need to replace the thermocouple. This is a small metal rod that is positioned in such a manner that when the pilot light is burning, the flame is contacting the thermocouple. When heated by the flame, the thermocouple produces a very small amount of electricity that it sends to the gas valve. The valve then interperets the electricity as confirmation that the pilot is burning and it is safe to conitinue delivering gas. Thermocouples wear out and stop producing power. The gas valve thinks that the pilot has gone out and thus turns the gas off for safety.

I have an old gas heater when i go to light it the piolet light wont stay on when i turn the knob to make it hotter.


Old heaters that have a "standing" pilot light that burns all of the time use a device called a thermocouple. The thermocouple sits in the flame of the pilot and when heated by the pilot, produces a very small amount of electricity (approx 30 mV) which the heater interperets as proof that the pilot is burning and indicating that it is okay to turn the main burner on. The thermocouple is a part that wears out and when it fails causes the exact problem that you are describing.
