The best way is to get a gas fitter to check the millibars coming through the pipe. it should be 20 miliibars at the meter or more and not less than 19millibars at the cooker. if its less it needs bigger pipe. simple test to do. if its wrong at the meter the gas supplier must turn it up.

Hello,
This covers the basics on no burner flame or pilot outage issues on standard tank gas water heaters. As always, safety first; if you do not understand what you are doing, do not attempt to make repairs on your own. This is just a guide to help you figure out what may be wrong.

1) Let's take care of the obvious things first. If you have a propane gas water heater, make sure you are not out of gas! Go to the tank, lift the lid, look at the % gauge. If it's pointing at 5% or less, you may be empty or about to run out of gas. If it says you have plenty of gas, make sure the gauge is not sticking and bang the lid down. If the gauge drops down to 5% or less, order a gas delivery.

2) Remove the panel on the water heater to view the burner. Is the pilot still lit? Yes, then make sure the control knob is in the "ON" position. Also make sure the temp dial is not on "Vacation" setting or set at a very low temp setting. Typical dial settings are at medium "arrow" selection or "A" selection.

3) Is the pilot flame out? If you smell gas, do not attempt to light. Turn gas off at shut off valve on gasline to water heater and call your gas co. Otherwise, follow the manufacturer's lighting instructions on the water heater to relight. Pilot still won't light? Then you may have a dirty pilot orifice that needs cleaned. Or if you were out of gas and just got filled, you may have air in the lines and lighting the pilot will take longer than normal to light. It's best to have the gasman light this when he is there to fill your tank. It's also possible you have a control that is locked out or defective, which will require a serviceman to repair or replace the control.

Let's say you get the pilot flame lit. When you release the button, does it stay lit? No, then you might not have held the button down long enough, Try again. Still goes out? Is the pilot flame a strong blue color and actually making the thermocouple red hot? If so, and it won't stay lit, replace the thermocouple. Or is it a lazy yellow flame? If so, it may have burn't the tip off the thermocouple and it will need to be replaced. This condition is caused by a dirty pilot orifice, which will need to be cleaned with a broach to prevent it from ruining the new thermocouple you install.

4) Ok, let's say you relight the pilot and get the main burner to light as well, but later they both go out again. This only happens, of course, after the service tech has left. With it still off, get a flashlight and look inside the access panel in the area above the main burner? Do you see a lot of black soot build-up? If so, this make be causing your problem. Have your water heater serviced. If no soot, then check for blockage in your vent. Look for a bird nest or even a dead bird. Your vent cap is either going through your roof or through a wall to the outside. You'll need a ladder to check either. If it has bends and elbows, check those out for blockage too.

5) No blockage? Sometimes a vent is installed wrong (like under an eave) or you are getting a strong down draft. Make sure your vent cap is still attached on top of your vent too. Strong winds can blow out the pilot flame.

6) Here's another test you can do, if the pilot and burner shut down. Relight it as you did before and with the burner lit, reinstall the access panel. Now light a match at the draft diverter (standard water heaters have these on top which connect the water heater to the venting) Blow out the match near the edge of the draft diverter and watch where the smoke goes. (Shining a flashlight there also helps you see the smoke better) If it gets pulled into the draft diverter, it's working properly, pulling outside air in. If the smoke gets pushed out, you have a drafting problem. To make matters worse, you are also allowing carbon monoxide into the home. Have your water heater serviced immediately. I also recommend having a carbon monoxide detector located on every level in houses that have gas or oil appliances.

These are just a few ideas to help you figure out your common lighting issues. There are other issues that I did not cover, which may require a repairman. I hope you find these useful. If you still have concerns, please ask away! That's why we are here! Douglas

Hello,

If your GE hot water heater fails to light, the first thing you should do is make sure the gas is turned on. Before checking the gas be sure to turn the control knob over to "Pilot." This will prevent the heater from coming on unexpectedly while you are checking the unit. After making sure that the knob is set to "Pilot," carefully remove the cover and look for the flame at the end of the gas line.
If the pilot light is not on, it is possible that the gas inlet valve is partially or totally closed. To check, turn the handle next to the line and follow the instructions on the tank to relight the pilot light. Keep the cover off of the unit and look for the pilot light to go on. If the pilot light does not light, gas may not be flowing. If you suspect a problem with the gas line, be sure to contact your utility company right away.
If you suspect that the burner on your GE hot water heater is not on, remove the cover and carefully look at the burner. If the burner is not on, make sure that the thermostat is set properly. The thermostat should be set to approximately 120 degrees Fahrenheit - if the setting it not right adjust it and then turn on a hot water faucet and allow it to run for several minutes. After the faucet has been running for a few minutes, look at the burner again. If the burner does not ignite, try adjusting the thermostat up and down until the burner comes on.
Good luck.

Adjustment for in house ng regulator


Don't adjust the regulator. Problems with the regulator are rare, and if you don't have the special pressure gauge you cant safely adjust it anyway. Your problem is with the thermocouple. This shuts off the gas valve if the burner goes out. Replacements can be found at Home Depot.

Rangemaster 110 grill flame.


to find out if the regulator is good or bad, turn any of the burners that do not have the problem, one at a time but take a close look at the flame and see if the flame goes lower and lower as you turn a second burner and a third and the fourth one, if the flame goes lower and lower the regulator is bad. but if the problem is with just the grill one , it has to much air, you can turned down the air where the burner meets the valve that supplies gas to it the burner has a vent, it needs to be close a little bit, you can close it little by little and testing the burner on the on position until the splutter goes away.
