Pilot light keeps going out when we turn heater down, not sure why and what numbers selection means, please help


You didn't mention what type of heater it is. If it is a gas heater then the problem is most likely the thermocouple. This is because there must be a standing flame that keeps the end of thermocouple hot which in turn lets the gas valve stay on and that lets the gas to the burners.

Good luck,

Marty

Following removal of filters from Rinnai gas heater (2 years old), I vacuumed both filter and back of gas heater but it still smells ilke gas when filters putr back on and heater tunred on.


Although you cleaned the filter and vacuumed the outside of the heater, there is probably a dust and dirt build up inside the heater, that also needs to be cleaned out. A dust build up can clog the burners so that they do not burn cleanly and thereby produce a gas odor, Be sure you turn the heater OFF and let it cool completely, before removing the heater's cabinet. A Shop Vac with a brush attachment on the hose and a can of compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with) works well in performing the cleaning process. Be sure to not only clean the burners, also clean the pilot and the pilot assembly.

If after completing the above, you still get a gas odor (if it doesn't smell like rotten eggs, it's not gas), it would be wise to perform a leak check on all the fittings. With that said, it's normal to get a whiff of gas when the burner lights and turns OFF, But, it should dissipate quickly.

Hope this helps you further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have a Lennox Gas Heater that will work for a while and then stop working (or fail to turn on when it cools down in the house). I changed the thermostat in the hallway about 6 months ago so I don't think...


Hi, i've found out that the flame sensor (rod that sits within the flame) is fouled with carbon on the surface. I believe this shields the rod from proper heat detection and the sensor reports that there is no flame and to shut off the gas valve to avoid explosion. Once you pull out the rod and cleaned it with a wire brush, it should fix the problem whatsoever.

I have a dyna-glo double tank top propane heater. turned it off by on/off valve and now the switch won't turn on..just turns..no propane coming out and it doesn't work..Please Help?


Don't them heaters have a safety thermacouple? You gotta push in on the heater and light it and hold in the knob a minute for the heat to get the magnet to hold open the gas valve? Then advance it over to where t will burn in single r dual mode right?

My therma gas heater will not stay on . It ignits correctly, it also steps up to 3 pannels burning correctly, but you have to hold the grey gas button down for it to work. The pilot-type flame will not...


You need to replace the thermocouple. This is a small metal rod that is positioned in such a manner that when the pilot light is burning, the flame is contacting the thermocouple. When heated by the flame, the thermocouple produces a very small amount of electricity that it sends to the gas valve. The valve then interperets the electricity as confirmation that the pilot is burning and it is safe to conitinue delivering gas. Thermocouples wear out and stop producing power. The gas valve thinks that the pilot has gone out and thus turns the gas off for safety.

Thank You,
