SOURCE: Unable To Keep Pilot Light Lit!

I have a Williams top vent gravity wall furnace (model 5009622) and I had the same problem. I had to take the cover off the furnace -- screw on top and two at the bottom (open the access door and there is one screw on each side) to get to the reset button for the vent safety shutoff system. On my furnace it's on the left side toward the top of the unit. I pressed the little red reset button and it's been working ever since. If your furnace is properly installed and doesn't have bird's nest in the chimney, it should work fine. Good luck!

SOURCE: Propane fireplace insert won't light

Gas apliances have safety features built into them so you don't blow yourself up. The pilot heats a thermocoupler which tells the gas valve there is a flame, open the main gas to the burner. If you can see the flame area of the pilot look for a round post about 3/16 inch in diamiter. This should be directly in the flame, if not bend the bracket so it is in one side of the pilot flame. The thermocouple is attached to a mounting bracket. This will be held in place by a 1/4 inch hex screw. remove the screw and the capilary tube leading to the gas control valve. Before you do anything, close the main gas supply to the fireplace and disconnect the power to the fan. You may need to semi dismantle the fireplace to get the thermocouple. The gas valve end is a brass 1/4 pipe thread plug. Turn the outer nut and remove without twisting the tube. Reverse this order to install a new one. Besure not to twist the capilary tube, tighten brass nut 1/4 turn past hand tight. Your better heating supply house will have these in stock. Restarting the pilot will take a few tries because the gas was off. Your gas suplier would charge about $75 to fix this. if you don't have the proper tools and it dosen't look pretty stright forward don't do it. You could get dead.

SOURCE: pilot light will not stay lit

Clean the pliot light tube with a Q-Tip and alcohol. Clean 2 inches deep. This will increase the pilot light flame and it will heat up the thermocoupler so it will stay lit.

SOURCE: Gas fireplace pilot flame won't stay lit.

Hi , you can try and pull the panel on the bottom of fireplace out and check the adapter in fireplace. Sometimes they go bad. When you open in also check to see if there is an adapter plugged in and a option to use the battery operated function. If this goes bad the pilot will not stay lit.

SOURCE: Pilot light won't stay lit

Look for dust and lint. Look for them in places where gas should be freely flowing. I had a similar problem with an Empire Corcho wall-mounted propane ceramic catalyst heater. First it was the pilot light, then the #2 ceramic mantle. After horsing around with the gas lines and pressure regulators and trying to re-aim the pilot, it all turned out to be dust and lint in the gas passages. A little dust bunny in the brass pilot tube gave me a pilot light the shape and color of a banana. One puff of compressed air, and I got back my razor-sharp pilot. And some dust in the chimney of the #2 burner kept it burning blue/yellow and blistering paint off the upper surfaces of the heater. A bit of cleaning with a shop-vac put that right. "Passive" heaters are very much prone to this sort of problem because they rely on convection currents (i.e. LOW velocity) to get the job done. Convection currents are notorious dust collectors, as in COBWEB CITY.

Pilot light wont stay lit on gas logs


If the pilot lite comes on, but will not stay on after it has had enough time to heat the thermocouple, you got a bad or the wrong thermocouple. It does take some time to heat that thermocouple.

Pilot wont light


If the pilot light goes out when you release the primer,then the thermocouple is bad.You can try to adjust the thermocouple,if it can be.It needs to be in the pilot flame.If the thermocouple is not in the flame,it will not stay lit.If you can not get the pilot to light at all,with the primer pushed down,then replace the regulator.To light the pilot light,you need to turn the dial to pilot.Then press the primer button down and hold it.The primer is either built into the turn knob,or it is a res button.Hold the primer down,and light the pilot,continue holding the primer down for at least 40 seconds.Then release the primer slowly,and if the pilot light starts to get weak,and try to go out,then push back down,and hold 30 seconds more.After the pilot stays lit,turn the knob to furnace or low,or whatever the directions say.

I HAVE A DESA LP VENTLESS FIREPLACE AND THE PILOT WILL NOT STAY LIT


the heater makes use of a millivolt generator which generates a small dc voltage (500-750mv) that is applied to the pilot valve of your main gas valve. when you light your pilot, the flame bathes the generator with a flame. after a delay you release the pilot button. if the generator is working, the pilot valve will stay lit. if the generator is not working the flame will go out as soon as you release the pilot button. change the generator.

Can't find instructions on lennox gf 8 series furnace


Does it have a standing pilot light? On new units, there is an igniter and not a pilot. But if you have a standing pilot, you will move the gas valve to "pilot" and push down the red button while holding a flame under the pilot located by one of the jets. Once it lights continue to hold the button down for a minute or so and then release the button. The pilot should stay lit. Then turn the dial to the on position. That's it.......... If the pilot won't stay lit then the thermocouple is bad and needs to be replaced.
