Gas not lighting so not heating

The system is supposed to have an igniter instead of a pilot light. The gas is not lighting. I also do not smell gas.

DON''T FIDDLE WITH GAS. CALL A SUPPLIER OF THE UNIT YOU HAVE AND ASK FOR THE MOST COMPITENT SEVICER THEY CAN RECOMMEND. SOUNDS LIKE A BAD IGNITOR TO ME.

Why would the pilot light ignite then turn off?


If it is a true "pilot" light, it needs to be held down long enough to generate the milivolts needed to prove to the gas valve that he is ready to open, other wise the gas valve would open, not igniting, thus causing a "gas leak". Turn the t-stat OFF, turn gas valve to pilot, push down on pilot knob, light pilot and hold for 2 minutes. After 2 mins let go, and if pilot stays lit, turn gas valve to ON, and turn the stat to heat and turn it up to desired temp. If pilot does not stay lit after doing above, try sanding thermo couple( the thing the flame is sitting in) or just spend the $15 bucks and replace therm couple. azeddysac@yahoo.com

No spark on unit


Need more info! Is it a Gas heat unit that is package or split unit? Is it force draft induced? Is there any sounds or audible noise that it is trying to call for heat and ignite? Does the inducer fan spin-up prior to calling for pilot. Is it a pilot light or a Hot surface ingition? Is it a direct spark ignition system?

We have a Rinnai 2000D heater. The pilot light goes out and is then difficult or impossible to restart. The igniter is working and there is the smell of gas, just doesnt seem to be enough gas there to...


you can try cleaning the pilot light with sand paper, (where the hole in the end is where the gas comes out) they get carbon built up over time and causes the hole to get smaller which makes the pilot light not want to stay light because of the small amount of gas coming out.

Im trying to figure out how to light my neighbors 7900 series gas furnace. Followed instructions pressing pilet light etc. Just cant figure where to ignite inside furnace door.


Hi, Just follow the pilot light tube back, the aluminum tube, back under to where it stops at the pilot burner. You may need to open the door to reach back there or you may have that piece of metal that you put the match in to reach back far enough to light it. Just turn the knob to pilot, and hold it down and you should be able to hear and smell the gas. Light the match and stick it along side of the pilot tube at the very end and it will light as long as you hold the knob down. After it lights hold it for about another minute and release it slowly. It should stay light. If not wait 5 minutes and try again. Very easy to do when you follow the tube that supplies gas back to the pilot, that's where you stick the match or lighter. Look back there with a good strong light and you can see where the tube stops. This is where the gas comes out. Please let me no, and don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind. You will find it. If you can't get it, you can call out your local gas company and they will light it for free of charge, no cost to you.

Gas furnace does not work


Simple things first. Is the gas turned on? Some furnaces have a gas line fitting to shut off during summer months. The gas valve should line up in the direction of the gas line. Two: is the pilot lighting. Can you see a flame? It may also have an electronic igniter. When it comes on you should see a glowing hot stick or something similar in the pilot viewing hole. If you have a combination valve for you pilot. You must first turn it to pilot, hold it in and light it manually. Hold that button in until the pilot stays lit, then trun it to "on". If the thermostat is in the "heat " position and the thermostat is set to call for heat by turning the emo up higher than the current room temperature, the main flame should come on. Otherwise something complex is wrong with your system

Gas heater won't ignite


I agree. Either the pilot flame is dirty and is not making good contact to heat up the bi metal strip on the pilot assembly, or the pilot assembly is defective. 90% of the time if you clean the pilot orfice and the pilot burner it will take care of the problem

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.
