Once I press the button to start the heater must wait a good 30 seconds or more before it stays lit when button is released.


That's normal. It's the correct way to allow the the Thermocouple and/or Thermopile to fully heat up.
If you have been turning the pilot light OFF after each use and then relighting it when you want to use the heater, that's really not necessary. Leaving the pilot lit during the heating season is a better way to go. If you think you're saying gas by turning the pilot light OFF and then relighting it again, when you want heat, you're really not saving a significant amount of gas or money. The pilot burning continuously, uses very little gas.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks

Hi. I have moved into a new home and have a Rinnai Gas Heater Model RHFE 1001FT. When I turn it on the green light comes on and it sounds like its going to start up but after about 30 seconds it turns...


Mela, the problem may be that the thermostat/temperature control is not set high enough, for the heater to sense that there's a need for heat. So, there for, the pilot won't light.

To assist you now and in the future, I have included a link to the Owners Manual for your model heater. You can download and print it for future reference, if you like.

Hi i have a york diamond heater in my attic. I went up in the attic and revomed the grill and the four burners are not coming on. it clicks and u smeal gas but it will shut off. the little blower motor...


If your furnace uses an electrical glow element to light the pilot light, the Glow Element will need to be replaced. Glow Elements are general used on 90+ High Efficiency Gas Furnaces.

If it uses a standing pilot light rather than the Electrical Glow Element, you need to manually relight the pilot. Since I can't see your furnace, you will need to locate and read your Owners Manual on how to do this or look in the side or inside the pilot light compartment for instructions on how to light it.
Be sure you have stick match or a butane grill lighter with you before you try to light it.

If it's a manual pilot ... if after lighting it, it doesn't hold when turned to the ON position, more thank likely you'll need to have the Thermocouple replaced.

And above all, BE CAREFUL. If you don't feel comfortable lighting a gas furnace, call a professional.

Furnace will not start. a/c seems to work ok. i


HI; I need more info. How old is the equipment. name brand of equipment. Also to answer Your question ...Yes the tstat wire goes into the furnace to make several connections then a seperate cable(brown) will follow Your freon lines out to the condensor.Also try removing the cover and have a good light. Get someone to turn on heat at tstat and watch for clicking sound.Sounds like You have a spark assist pilot system. When the sparking starts the pilot light should come on. Then once the pilot sensor feels the heat comming from pilot light it will allow the gas valve to come on...BE CAREFULL...I ASSUME NO RESPONSABILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS...alpharome416 PS.usually there is nothing to worry about just keep Your space to begin with ok.

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

I have had the gas off for two years. I got the pilot light to work but when I turn the thermostat up to get some heat it got the heater going about three times in over twenty-five tries over a couple


you need to clean the burner assembly. Over time dust and settled inside the unit and it is possibly restricting the flow of gas through the burners. This is a dangerous situation. get it cleaned before you try again.

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.

I have an old gas heater when i go to light it the piolet light wont stay on when i turn the knob to make it hotter.


Old heaters that have a "standing" pilot light that burns all of the time use a device called a thermocouple. The thermocouple sits in the flame of the pilot and when heated by the pilot, produces a very small amount of electricity (approx 30 mV) which the heater interperets as proof that the pilot is burning and indicating that it is okay to turn the main burner on. The thermocouple is a part that wears out and when it fails causes the exact problem that you are describing.

Home gas heater


Need more info. Does it have a pilot light? Some are spark ignition and some hot surface which both light themselves, except for pilot style.
