Amana GUCA Pilot Light

The pilot light on our Amana GUCA won't come on. We have our furnace in the garage and the wind is really blowing outside. We had this problem once before but I can't remember how we get the pilot back on.

Sound to me that the pilot had gotten blowen out.
Turn the gas valve to Pilot and depress the knob while lighting the pilot. If it does not stay lite you may have to clean the thermocouple off. Thats the poart that the flame hits. try to use a scrub pad to clean it with.

Pilot on my gas furnace won't stay lit


Try cleaning the thermocouple tip if you can see ashes or any buildup on it. If you know the wind isn't blowing it out (had mine blow out from high winds before) then I would change the thermocouple before anything else.

The wind keeps on blowing out pilot light in the Intertherm Gas Furnace


The wind is probably not the culprit here. You probably have a crack in the heat exchanger, which allows the air from the blower to escape and blow out the pilot light.

When I tried to light my furnace, the electrical wires from the thermostat don't spark all the time, therefore my furnace won't stay lighted. What can I do to fix this?


Is this an older furnace where you have a pilot light? Are you saying the pilot light will not stay lit? If thats the case then likely you need a new thermal couple. That is what the pilot light keeps hot while it stays lit. It is a safety device that is there so your furnace will not come on if there is no pilot light present. Very common. Hardware store item. Need Furnace's make and model #'s.
If this is an electronically controlled furnace, you will need a service call.

I have an Ascot wall hanging hot water heater.The wind frequently blows out the pilot light. Can I make a safe housing around it to protect it from wind and rain


Yes you can, but make sure that it has access to air. Leave at least 6" of space between the shelter and the pilot. Is it outside? I've never seen one outside.
