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.

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 standing pilot that wont stay lit.


If you have a standing pilot that wont stay lit and you have to keep relighting it, it can only be a couple of things that will do this.<br /> 1. Try tighting the thermocouple at the gas valve. (this is a thin copper line that goes from the gas valve and goes to the pilot light.)<br /> 2. Make sure that the tip of the thermocouple is in the pilot light flame.<br /> 3. Make sure that the thermocouple is clean.<br /> <br /> if you have done these and it still doesnt stay lit, buy a new thermocouple.

I have a Dayton 3E290 wall heater that was installed new 30 years ago. The pilot light started to extinguish a few years ago. Gradually this began to occur more frequently. I've changed the...


The pilot assembly may need cleaned out and the orifice cleaned, also the gas valve may need to be replaced, to check for proper voltage from the thermocouple you need a flame source and it takes a meter that can register DC milliamps, and should be 350 to 750 millivolts. Heat the thermocouple with the pilot or other flame source and check, if OK, gas valve is weak.

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.

My propane fireplace pilot light wont stay lighted help


Most gas valves have a flame sensor, which is a metal bulb at the end of a wire. The pilot light heats this bulb, and the valve stays open because there's a flame. If the flame has been out, you'll need to hold down the pilot light button for as much as two minutes after lighting the flame to allow the flame to heat the flame sensor up enough to keep supplying gas when you release the button.

Sometimes when you turn a gas heater off for some time, if the source tank has been turned off, the line will bleed the propane and the line will contain mostly air. This is especially true if the supply line is long. In order to light the pilot, you will have to hold the pilot lighting button down for a while (a full minute or longer, depending on the size and length of the supply line) before pure propane arrives at the pilot light jet. You should keep a lighted lighter at the jet so that when the gas arrives, the lighter will light it. After the pilot lights, you will have to keep the button pressed long enough for the thermocouple to get hot enough to set the pilot to stay on. When it is hot enough, you should be able to release the pressed lighting button and the pilot should stay on. If it does, you should be able to light the heater. If the pilot jet never lights, gas is not getting to the regulator. If the pilot will not stay lit after a period of time waiting for it to heat the thermocouple, the thermocouple or the regulator may be bad and need replacement. :-)

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.

when you light the pilot you hold down the knob for the coupler to get hot at this time don't let go of the knob turn it to on position as quickly as you can. If that doesn't fix it you need to replace the thermal coupler. try that

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!
