It could be a few things:
1.Not enough fresh air or the unit is too large for the room it is installed.
(Try to open a window)
2. It could be low gas pressure. This can happen it your LP tank is low or something is wrong with the line.
(Call your gas or LP company)
3. ODS Pilot may be clogged.
(Use a vaccum cleaner, pressurized air, or a small, soft bristled brush to clean).

If this does not fix the problem you may need to replace the pilot. You can contact them at 800-446-1446 or on-line at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps!

Wiallwialliams wall heater wont stay on installed new thermo coup aready


Get a AA battery and tape a wire on each end, then attach the wires where the pilot generator wires to, mv/pv and pv usually,if it runs this way the valves good, the pilot generator makes 750mv or 3/4 of 1 volt, by the dissimilar metals in the pilot generators numerous thermocouples, they make 30mv each and are used on water heaters only now.
Dont run it with the battery if you sleep! test only.

I have a rheem fury 50gal gas water heater that will not stay on. I have replaced the thermo couple, it did lite but then went out.


I would like to know how old this heater is. This information can be found on either model or serial numbers.It won't appear obvious but last six numbers will tell you. You have already changed thermo-couple so I would check to see that it's properly centered in pilot flame.When you light it hold pilot button down for two-three mins.while watching thermo-couple.It should be a nice cherry red. If it is and pilot goes out after you release button then you either have another bad thermo-couple or gas valve is bad.If it does not get cherry red at least on tip then you need to reposition thermo-couple and try again. If gas valve is bad and heater is less then six years old valve will be covered under warrenty,however labor won't typically be covered unless you have extened service contract.Hope this helps.Thanks.

I have a ventless gas heater. the pilot lights


It just has a little dust in the pilot safety and that makes it think low oxygen levels are present. Ti correct that situation I flush the pilot safety device with rust buster, I relight the heater with pretty good success. I have a page which shows where to clean and has a nice demo which shows exactly how it works HERE

My living room gas heater will not stayb lit


Try replacing the thermo coupler.There should be a little bulb shaped part(like a pencil eraser) that the pilot light heats up .The other end screw into the gas valve.If this is going bad or has gone bad the pilot light will not stay lit.Most of these are under$10.Well good luck and try to stay warm.

Propane heater goes out after heat cycle


I've seen excessive draft draw the pilot flame away from the thermo couple when the burners light so when the burners shut down so does the pilot.
