Turn the knob on the gas valve t the PILOT position. Press down on the knob so that gas can get to the pilot. Light the pilot. Keep holding down the knob till the thermocouple gets hot enough to hold the safety magnet open and keep the pilot burning. Then move the knob to the ON position. Once that is done raise your thermostat setting till the heater comes on then adjust according to you comfort and party on Amigo!

GE furnace pilot won't ignite


Check for 24 volts at the pilot valve on the gas valve, if there is voltage, take an amp reading, if you get amperage it's trying to work, see if pilot orifice is obstructed by webs etc. very common to see this.

Pitco frialator excessive pilot flame


If you didn't figure it out already you lost the orifice on the pilot light. It's a little metal cup with a tiny hole in it that slips over the end of the gas tube in the pilot assembly. The orifice controls the size of the pilot light. Need to get a new one or find the lost part.

Pilot light on the gas boiler won't stay lit it's


The pilot flame must touch (burn) the tip oqef the t-couple to hold the magnet in the gas value open.make sure the pilot orifice (hole) is clear.the pilot pressure (in the tube) is factory set full open & can only be adjusted down (less). Also check the gas **** didn't get closed or turned half way.? Assuming its not the t-couple. If all is good & it still won't stay on. Replace the gas value.!

How do I change the pilot light as it is not working anymore.


It won't be the pilot light, It will be the gas valve control, if the pilot light actually lights but the burners won't light,, then you need to check the thermocouple , its that little round thing that sits inside the flame of the pilot light, and has (usually) a copper tube that runs back to the actual gas valve, If its gone bad, the signal to the gas valve is lost so the gas never gets released so nothing lights

The patio lamp will not light - have replaced propane tank but gas not getting to ignitor


It's not the ignitor that you need to worry about, it's the pilot assembly (which may need cleaning) or the lamp's gas regulator.But, since you just replaced the tank, let's try something else first.

Turn the gas tank's valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.
Open the tank's gas valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).
Once the valve is fully open, try lighting the lamp again. IT may take a few clicks of the ignitor, so be patient. If the pilot lights and holds, you've solved the problem. Remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If the above didn't solve the r, it may very well be tat the pilot is clogged and needs to be cleaned. Use canned compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with) to blow out the tip of the pilot and any other debris that you see. If that doesn't do the trick, you will need to replace the lamp's Hose/Regulator Assembly, as your is locked up. You can use a grill Hose/Regulator Assembly, which runs about $30.00 at hardware stores & home centers that sell gas grills and accessories.

I hope this helped you troubleshoot & solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Pilot light gone out. How do I relight? Which


In general, large button from gas valve push in & hold 20-30 secs at same time push electronic lighter/ignition button to light pilot. Remember to hold in only gas button. the pilot light heats up a thermo couple [u can see this in the flame] and when hot enough allows the main gas through and the pilot to remain on.
If not then either thermo couple not heated for long enough or
it may need replacing

Pilot light goes out frequlently. This is 630yort. Manual has been lost. Remember a vent screen somewhere that needs cleaning. Where is it?


first check your exhaust ducting make sure it is in good condition (no holes ie..) if everything is okey this is usually caused by weak thermocouple. it is the small tube located by the pilot light the one that the one that the pilot flame is constantly heating up.
