You need to test the thermocouple, to test a thermocouple, you heath it up, and at the same time read voltages and continuity at the terminals using a multimeter.

I have an old gas furnace. The thermostat is working but the burner won`t ignite. It`s 40 + years old but has been maintained it`s whole life. A new furnace is not possible at this time.


You should have a thermocouple in the unit for the pilot light. See if the pilot is lit, if not you may need to replace the thermocouple, if it is then check the voltage to the gas valve, if you have volts 24 volts there, your gas valve is bad. If you do not have 24 volts to the gas valve, then it's probably a limit switch.

Empire wall furnace pushing down the pilot button trying to light the pilot found too much gas flowing


Is the button on the gas valve or a red button in the line to the pilot assembly? If its in the line, there is a regulator upstream of the button. If the gas is coming from the gas valve, there is a small screw covered hole in line with the pilot line in the gas valve. If neither of these apply, you may need to replace the orifice in the pilot assembly. Let me know how it goes.

Is it possible to find parts for old Coleman floor furnaces? I have a 35,000 BTU, Colman Super Performance gas furnace model 22. It's old but operates great. My concern is on the cracked glass in a...


Dear Sir,
That glass inspection cap is not made anymore, and it is very dangerous to operate with out one in place. Many people are in the same spot as you are.
I have had success working with glass companies, they can make a glass piece out of glass that can withstand high heat, it is time consuming and expensive, so you will have to shop around, but it can be done, but not for cheap.
Those old floor furnaces can heat so nice, Just for the information these floor furnaces are still being made, though they heat a bit differently as they don't get as hot, just a new code put into place, to keep children from burning thier little feet.
"Cozy" is one of the new manufactures.
I hope I have answered your questions.
Sincerely,
Paul Gibson

We have a teledyne gas furnace whose pilot won't stay lit. Any ideas?


Is this a standing pilot,or pilot always on.

If so a bad thermocouple will cause pilot to go out.

Thermocouple is a small copper tube running from the pilot light area to the gas valve. easy to replace.

Assuming the pilot is clean and sharp. Before replacing the valve, clean any spade connections, those going up to the spill switch in particular. Clean and tighten all 4 connections. Good luck.

It sounds like a thermocouple has gone bad. this is a very common problem with gas powered things ie; water heaters, furnaces, hot tubs. The telltale sign is when you release the pilot light button it won't stay lit. This is a safety feature and is relatively inexpensive and easy to repair.
