You need a new thermocouple they are about 5 bucks at a hvac supply store. Or you can get them at a hardware store. you can take the one out and go down and get the same length. In brief the thermocouple keeps the gas supply open to the pilot light.

Relight combi pilot light?


These are designed not to light once the thermocouple fails.the thermocouple has a small wire that positions in to the pilot light which checks the pilot is on and keeps the gas governed.once the temperature drops it shuts off the gas to prevent a build up of gas in a room where a pilot light has gone out.this is why you need to hold the button in on reignition to allow the thermocouple to heat up so the gas keeps open.
Try to relight by turning on the gas ....pressing down and holding the button for at least 10 seconds whilst firing the piezo to ignite flame.do not release gas button for at least 10 seconds then slowly release.if the flame on the pilot will not stay alight....then it is likely the thermo has failed.try cleaning the metal wire that is above the pilot jet.still no joy then it needs replacing.hope my comment is of help...please vote.

Just need to know how to light the pilot on a Montgomery Ward wall furnace model sfb-50219


I can't speak to the specific model but with most pilot lights, there is a switch setting or button for lighting. If you release that switch or button too soon, the pilot will not remain light. Hold the switch or button ON while you light the pilot. Keep holding the switch or button for about a minute until the heat sensor is sufficiently warmed that the pilot light stays on. Good luck.

I have a readyheater model 65-85 the flame will not stay lit im thinking thermal couple is there a way to test this part? or could it be another problem?


If your pilot light will not stay lit when you release pilot light button then chances are that your thermocouple is bad. Make sure that the tip of thermocouple is directly in line with pilot light. Tip of thermocouple should be cherry red if it is properly placed. If pilot will not stay lit then replace it. If you aren't sure about placement of thermocouple you can heat thermocouple with a seperate heat source. If you do this and pilot light stays lit then reposition thermocouple in pilot flame. If it still won't keep pilot burning then replace thermocouple. Hope this helps. Thanks.

Light pilot on Royal deep fryer. Pilot will not stay lit. Second fryer has larger pilot have no trouble keeping it lit. How can I adjust the pilot so that it will stay lit?


there is a small adjustment screw on the gas valve,turn it clockwise to increase pilot,if that does not work the vent cap on the gas regulator on the back of the unit could be stopped up,remove that cap ,clean out or replace unit can operate without it just fine.If you increase the pilot and it still wont stay lit replace the thermocouple

Dear Experts, I am having problems with my heater.It's pilot light keeps on going out.Do you know what to do to help solve the problem? Thanks, Mystery Guest


light pilot, after pilot is kit hold valve button to keep gas manually coming out when valve is set to on pilot should stay lit, if pilot goes out right away you can gently sand thermocouple to clean foreign material off the end if this does not work thermocouple may need to be replaced.

The pilot light will not stay lit to light the heater.


The power pile (pilot generator) is defective. It produces a milivolt signal to ensure to keep the gas valve open. If it goes bad, the valve thinks the pilot is out, even when you are holding the button down, so when you release the button, it shuts the gas off to prevent excess gas buildup and a possible explosion.

My pilot light will light, but will not stay lit? I have a gas whirpool water heater aprox 1 1/2 years old.Thisis the first time we have encountered any problems with our appliance.


Once the flame has struck it heats up a thermocouple that in turn holds the gas valve open

It is a safety measure in case the flame blows out and the gas keeps on coming.

Sometimes the end of the thermocouple gets dirty and a scrub with a fine emery board does the trick

If not it is a new part (They are not that expensive)

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!
