Looks like the knob or the contacts are faulty.

Well, I just went out this morning and worked on the heater after it would not light last night. Turns out that a spider or moth set up camp in the pilot light intake housing and plugged up the two small mixer holes that pull in air for the pilot light. This would explain the 'yellow-flame'. I took a punch awl and some compressed air and cleaned out the hole, then re-installed the cover and knob. Lastly, I turned and depressed the knob and the pilot light ignited almost instantly, stayed on when I let the knob up, and the heater turned on normally after that. Good luck, I hope this helps.

The yhernocoupler would snuff the pilot if bad. What ignites the overhead burners? and what regulates the overhead gas supply? Look into this. Too much gas will not light as easily as proper balance gas and air. Even more so in a tower type heater.. Turn the gas on low and the pilot should grab it. Good luck

You got to heat the thermocouple to get the gas valve to open ... I guess you know that ... You checked for spider web???

Charmglow Ventless Heater. Pilot will not stay lit. Replace?


If you are lighting it correctly I am guessing the thermocouple is defective or has been dislodged so that it does not end up in the pilot flame. It may need replaced.

Pool heater pilot lights, goes out when heat called for


No, that would just cause you to have huge flame. There is another high pressure switch located next to the flame sensor/ pilot genator that can cause this problem it is the size of a quarter and is screwed down with 2 phillip head screws
