There are two things which could cause this.
First, if there is insufficient air flow, and second would be if one of the coils on the gas valve open up as it warms (as current flows through it). If you have good air flow out the outside exhaust with this problem, replace the gas valve. (coils are not available individually, even though you can swap out the coils from the old and new valve without physically changing the entire valve)

Jandy lite 2 pool heater will not stay lit.


I'm having the same issue as the above user with Jandy Lite 2 (which from what I can tell stands for the number of times that you can get this POS to work annually)!
The unit LIGHTS OFF, but WON'T STAY LIT! Igniter engages, gas valve opens, unit lights, burns for 10 seconds, and flames out. Error code FL 2, after third attempt, already replaced the flame sensor....

Goodman furnace gmh95090cxac wont stay lit keeps clicking will lite then clicks back off what would be the problem


Hello, if the burners light but do not stay on for more than 10 seconds, I would clean the flame sensor. The flame sensor is a metal rod that is on the opposite side of the Igniter, sometimes it gets coated by oxidation and does not sense the burner flame and shuts the Furnace down. To clean to kill power to tje furnace, remove flame sensor and clean with a steel wool, then reinstall and start Furnce back up. If this does not work then most likely the Igniter is too weak to ignite the gas and will have ro be replaced.

Why does pilot light turns on gas burner only to have it go out about 10 seconds later? 30 to 40 sec later repeats,without lighting. What is problem? once in awhile, it will light..not often. The burner...


Hello
Sounds like the thermocouple is going bad.The thermocouple is a thin tube that runs from the pilot lite to the gas valve.
What it does is it sences the heat from the pilot lite and keeps the gas valve open to allow the pilot to stay on.
This can be easily repaird by shutting off power and gas to your heater and removeing the thermocouple from the gas valve,then unclip or unscrew it from the pilot lite area.
Any plumbing supply store or home depot or lowes should have these.

Once you get a new one,install to gas valve and pilot lite area then turn on power and gas to heater and follow pilot lighting procedure,you may need to hold gas on for 60 seconds.

Here is a picture of the thermocouple so you know what to look for.

Kenmore Gas Range. Top burners work fine. Oven is slow to preheat. Igniter has a yellow glow and the burner lights within about 20-30 seconds later. However, the burner has a very small flame and it takes...


the ignitor should glow bright orange.it sounds like you have a weak ignitor but if the flame lites within 20 to 30 seconds it sounds like it's ok,it could be braking down though when it gets hot,it doesn't matter if it glows,it has to be putting out 3.2 amps,if you have an amp meter with a clamp on it you can read out the amps,if the broiler works ok i would change out the ignitor,then follow the tube down to the bottom and stick a paper clip in the orifice hole where the gas comes out and make sure that's clear,also there's a shutter on the tube to adjust the air flow,see if it's closed,it's usually almost wide open,check the tube to make sure the ignitor didn't burn a hole through it.i've found tubes with holes in them from a lazy ignitor,most of the time if there's a problem it will be the ignitor

Gas or Electric? If Gas at the bottom of oven where Oven burner is there is a glow plug ,or some might call ignitor. When it get a signal to ignite gas that glow plug gets hot and ignites gas. and that does goes Bad .

My Amana gas oven won't heat up gas smell strong


Sounds like a sticking gas valve or a defective hot surface igniter. Open the broiler drawer or remove the bottom cover in the oven compartment. The oven usually has a hot surface igniter or a spark igniter. Turn on the oven and watch for the hot surface igniter to start glowing. It should glow very bright. Once it is glowing the burner gas should come on. If you hear the gas come on it should light right away. If there is any delay shut off the oven and stay back. Let the gas clear out then inspect the area near the igniter and make sure the burner is not plugged(the little holes may have debris in them). If you turn on the oven and the igniter comes,glows brightly,no gas is heard but you can smell gas it is either a blocked burner orfice/assembly or sticking gas control valve. Try giving the burner and gas control valve a tap and see if it comes on. If you tap the control valve and it starts working then shut of the oven and try it several times. If it starts to come on and off now you may have cleared whatever debris was causing the problem. If it does it again then it could be the control valve or a weak hot surface igniter. The igniter can be tested with a ohm meter. Most of the time when I get this complaint it is the oven control valve that is sticking. Be very careful when doing these procedures....gas can build up in the oven compartment very quicky and flash if ignited. Always have the gas shut off valve at the back of the range within reach and the electrical outlet in case you need to unplug it.

Maytag gas dryer wont stay hot


Check the exhaust to see if it is clogged. If not, you may need a pair of gas valve coils (not very hard.)
Replace the coils if you see the ignitor glow and shut off, without the gas valve opening up.
