I've got good flame replaced Powerpile pilot won&#t stay lit

The flame sensor is not producing enough volts to hold the gas valve open for the pilot light. Make sure the SIDE of the pilot flame is touching the sensor. If it in engulfed by the flame it won't work right.

I have a whirlpool hot water heater and the piolit light wont stay lit can you tell me wher the screen is to make sure its clean?

Not sure what screen you refer to, but the simple fix, assuming you have done all the correct pilot re-light procedure's, the cheapest part to try is a Thermocouple, easy enough to try it DIY.

Furnance lights and then burner goes out

I'm assuming this is a remote sensor... if so, you need to read the MicroAmps that the flame is generating. If it is anything less than 4, then either the flame is not hitting the sensor enough, or the sensor needs replaced.

The pilot light is not on how do I switch it back on?

Turn the gas valve off all the way, make sure you don't smell gas and wait an hour or so. The gas valve should have an on setting and a pilot light setting. Turn the gas valve to pilot light and you should be able to push the vlv button down. At this time hold a flame to the pilot light outlet. It should light and when it does keep holding the vlv down for about 15-30 seconds. IF you let off of the vlv and the pilot light goes out, you may have a faulty sensor. IF it stays lit when you let off the vlv. back your face away from the unit and turn the valve to the on position. Operate the cooker as usual making sure that the burner does indeed light when called for. If the pilot light will not stay lit, make sure the sensor is enveloped in the flame. If the flame is too small you may have to change or clean the pilot flame outlet. To replace the sensor, remove it from the mount by the pilot outlet(once it has cooled) then follow it back to the control valve and remove it useing a line wrench. YOu should be able to get one at the nearest hardware store.

LLG325N Larrs heater wont stay running. Replaced the pilot assembly. It fired up for about 10 seconds and then quit.

You should have a flame sensor wire going to your pilot. Make sure that it is hooked up correctly. If the sensor isn't relaying flame to the control box it will think you don't have a flame and will shut off gas flow for safty reasons. So be sure the wire is connected and in good shape. I hope this helps.

I have a sv9500m 2674 tha has a sticker that says it has been converted to L P gas. The ignitor lights the pilot and the fan comes on. The pilot stays lit and the main furnace fan comes on but the burner...

Hello,If you cleaned the flame sensor and it is in the pilot flame,Try adding a ground wire from the pilot assembly to any close screw to boost the (pilot on) signal.Also if the valve has been sitting for a while give a tap once during (pilot on) to make sure the diaphram is just not hung up.I would hate to replace the valve and still have the same problem.

Exhaust fan turns on for a few min, then shuts down. No heat

There is a gas valve that controls the burner and has a flame sensor that keeps it from supplying gas when there's no flame. There's a chance that the unit overheated and caused a heat overload protector to fail, which was a safety feature to keep the unit from becoming dangerous. You may need to replace that overload protector. The pilot light may have just went out, and you'll need to light it again and make sure the gas valve is set to on. The flame sensor may be dirty and thinking the pilot is not on. The flame sensor will be a wire or probe mounted close to the pilot light. The gas valve may have failed and need to be replaced. You probably can't cause a lot of damage by just looking around in there and cleaning the flame sensor, but you're dealing with fire here, and you should leave anything like taking the gas line apart to a professional.

Have a zephaire GL when you first turn on the

"sparks pilot lights" , "reset button comes on" can you be more specific on these terms you used? I know this posting is an old posting, but I maybe be able to help you as I have fixed all the problems (multiple with 6 G-L's zephaire. Here I'll try to "assume" your terms. The g-l has one light at the front panel. If you mean it comes on and off (the light that is), this is the due to continuous try ignition module, not reading the "flame sensor input right", assuming there is no flame at the pilot. This might be caused by a mulfunction of the ignition module, or by a bad "flame sensor wire" or sensor. See if the pilot spark / flame comes on when you turn the oven on. See if the white wire coming out of it is good and not chewed by rats or something. If the ingition control (the blue box) is reading flame sensor input right, it will light the main burners, (red wire on the valve) if I recall correctly. The ignition control works properly on max 150 F and the ventilation fan on top if it's not working should be replaced. They sell them on line, and also grainger has it for around $32. The o modules go for around $129 to 170. and sometimes you find them on ebay for around 50. Hope this helps.
