The most likely problem is a bad thermocouple. Pilot-equipped appliances have a thermocouple to make sure the pilot is lit before turning on the main gas flow. You'll see the end of the thermocouple looking like a metal rod sticking into the pilot flame. Replacing the thermocouple is not difficult. There's a nut that holds the thermocouple into the pilot assembly, and another that holds the thermocouple lead into the main gas valve. Universal replacements are available for under $10. Several websites have good step-by-step instructions if you need them.

SOURCE: pilot light

Pilot orifice may be clogged. Remove pilot tube and orifice. Blow out orifice with compressed air only and reassemble. Also, control valve may be bad.

Have a goodman gas pack and we lost power due to winter storm over night so now my unit is running but only cold air coming out


the pilot light runs from a very small gas jet and should not be affected by the power outage
however that is not to say that the jet may have frozen over and become blocked putting out the pilot light
AS the system needs power to drive the fan it is possible that without the fan and safety system working , the main gas supply solenoid would have shut down and that could have affected the pilot light
with the power reinstalled try lighting the pilot light
I would say that there would be a pizo starter on the front of the unit to light the pilot loght

Put knob in pilot position push down and hold for at least 30 seconds or longer then if there is an igniter push and release it push and release till pilot light comes on .Continue to hold pilot light button down for another 10 seconds or so, release pilot button and turn button to on or up a number or set T stat
Main flame should come on and burn

HEATER WILL NOT STAY LIT


this happened to me as well. my pilot light had 3 settings.
"off" which is in the middle.
"up" is for priming/starting the pilot light.
"down" is what you move it to AFTER the pilot light is lit.

prior to lighting the pilot light, I had get city get city to verify gas was coming into house. It was not. someone thought they had turned gas on, but in fact did not.

so I had two problems.

I don't think my pilot is lite. I need to know How to light the pilot


Hi, open the front panel of the furnace, At the bottom of the furnace you will see a gas valve with a red button, or nob of some kind. Place the nob on pilot, then push in and light the gas coming out of the pilot don't let go of the button for at least 30 seconds because the sensor will not detect flame. If this dose not work you make have a bad gas valve or a bad pilot generator.

I HAVE A VERMONT CASTINGS RADIANCE HEATER MY PILOT LIGHT WONT STAY LIT I HEAR THE THERMOCOUPLER TRIP THE VALVE BUT THE FLAME WILL GO OUT


We had this problem and struggled with it for over a year. We finally hired someone to come in and service the stove he cleaned everything and blew a piece of crud from the pilot line. NO Problem for 2 years since.
He told me the pilot light should look strong pointed like a pencil not curved up like a candle. He removed the pilot and disassembleed the line and used compressed air.

the pilot light is operated off a millivolt generator. that is the small tube directly in the pilot flame. its purpose is to generate a small dc current which is connected to the pilot valve inside the main valve. setting the control to pilot opens just the pilot gas supply. when operating normally the millivolt generator keeps a small electromagnet pulled in that keeps the pilot gas supply open. if it don't work the pilot gas supply valve closes. replace the thermocouple.
