    I replaced thermopile prior to replacing regulator, also replaced thermostat at that time. that seemed to help at that time-but now back to same problem.

    Have you ever replaced the thermopile? It is similar to thermocouple.

You have some limit switches located around the unit one high one or two around the middle one of them is opening and not closing. You need to take off the cover and locate the limits undo the wires and ohm them out you should have complete circuit now the one that is open when you find it is bad and needs to be replaced with the same rated heat temperature as original. Your t-stat goes through these limits and one open would kill the whole circuit. Let me know how it goes. ken

Chances are good that the thermocouple is bad. It is a small probe that the pilot light keep hot. Take it out and get one at HDepot or at a RV store.

Yes your pilot light may not be surrounding the thermocouple. Check and see it the pilot is burning blue and surrounds the thermocouple . These units are very sensitive if even a little breeze across the unit. You can clean the pilot with compressed air or maybe even a small wire brush. If this doesn't work you may have to change the thermocouple.

You will need to relite the pilot if this is a standing pilot furnace........If this has an electronic lite for the pilot then cycle power to the furnace and set thermostat to heat. and retry sequence. Once you get the pilot to lite then watch it to see if the main gas comes on. if it doesn't then you need to check and see if you are getting 24 volts to the gas valve with a volt meter. If you don't feel comfortable with doing this then you will have done everything that is simple. You will have to call a service tech. Problems that it could be are gas valve, limits not closed, ignition control board, main limit open because the blowor motor locked up or motor has open winding or run capacitor open.

First turn the dial on the hot water heater to the off position and wait for 5 minutes. Then turn the dial on the water heater to the pilot position. Press in the dial and use a gas grill lighter, long wooden match, or similar device to light the pilot. Once the pilot is lit, continue to hold in the dial for about 1 minute then release and turn the dial to the temperature setting that's comfortable for you.

The heater in my central heating is not getting turn on but the fresh air and cooling is getting turn on


Check the pilot light.Older standing pilot systems use thermocouples to verify the pilot is burning before the gas valve opens.If the pilot wont stay lit replace the thermocouple.
Newer systems light the pilot.On a call for heat the igniter lights the pilot. When the heat is verified the gas valve opens . Some systems use an circuit board with flashing led lights to help troubleshooting.

If your pilot looks a little weak chances are the pilot tube has a sight blockage in it. You will need to turn the gas off remove the pilot tube and get access to the opening of the tube and blow it out with your mouth air compressor or something. Reinstall pilot tube turn gas back on and re-try lighting the pilot. Now should look stronger and if it don't hold the thermocouple is bad and will need to replace it. You might be able to get one at Lowes or a hardware store like Ace Hardware. let me know what happens . ken
