Question about Dayton Gas Furnace Heater
My ageing Vulcan Quasar 40 gas wall heater stopped working yesterday - the pilot light went out. When I try relighting it, it goes out as soon as I release the button.
I have tried turning power off at the mains, waiting 15 mins and starting the process again, but the pilot still won't stay lit. I have a wall mounted Dayton gas furnace model 3E475B. The unit has worked well for 18-years. The pilot has been frequently going out but would relight fine. The pilot will light normally but when I release the button it goes out. I replaced the thermocouple but the pilot still will not stay lit when I release the button, even when I hold it in for 2 minnutes before releasing it.
Looking for a little help. Thanks.
Everything is fine except the on-off swith. The entire switch can be replaced. Its a small part you will get in any repair shop and can be replaced easily.
