SOURCE: Pro-Com Gas Heater Some times the pilot light goes

Many times the thermocouple will build up so corrosion where it seats into the gas valve. This will cause the heater to just go out at random time. When the pilot goes out it will turn the gas valve off so no gas will escape from the valve.

Try cleaning the end of the thermocouple and see it that takes care of your problem.

How to clean a pilot light part for a delonghi gas portable heater


Try using an old toothbrush, as it is stiff enough to clean most of the deposits, yet soft enough not to damage the thermocouple and flame seat. Just make sure that the unit has cooled down first!

Pilot light keeps going off jazz rocco gas fire


So we are talking about the same won't stay lit I will describe both ways. One is when you lift your fingers off the knob it goes out that instant which is probably the thermocouple needs replaced,look to make sure the tip of the thermocouple is in the flame of the pilot light first. The secound version of it is it goes out in a few minutes up to a few hours.The second version is most common.There is a part called a Thermocouple that is mounted next to the pilot light, it is around 3/16 of a inch diameter 1 to 2 inches long and should be mounted so the tip is in the flame of the pilot light. This is what tells the gas valve the pilot light is burning. If any dust ,cat hair ,dog fur what have you gets around the base of the hole the gas from this pilot light comes out of it will bend the gas, which move the flame so it does not hit the thermocouple like it should, this is below the flame so what ever is in there diverting the flame dose not burn up.A draft from a fan or door could do it also.I have used a procom ventless heater as my only heat for 7 years and have to blow it out twice a year. I bought a new thermocouple at the same time I bought the heater to have in the closet in case it went bad some night, it is still hanging there .Because it sucks air in from the bottom past the flame and out the top everything in the air gets burnt into a fine ash dust. So if you use compressed air to blow out your unit you might want to hold a wet towel up in front of it hoping a lot of that white powder dust will stick to it instead of flying around the room . My flame always looks so much better ,less orange and more blue after this .

I have a new Atwood G6A-7 water heater. The pilot lights fine but gas flow, when it turns on, is so strong it will blow the pilot out. Certain times, it sounds and looks like a mini fire ball going


Clean burner tube with proper brush, such as long spring type for bar-b-Q burner tube that are available at most hardware stores, and make sure you have new burner tube aligned properly (straight on) with brass orifice on gas control. Then be sure to adjust air shutter for nice blue flame, with little orange at tip. Do not give so much air that flame roars or jumps off the end of the burner tube. Too many people think more air, less fuel, but actually, when flame roaring and jumping off end of tube, the heat passes through faster and it takes longer to heat the water inside the tank. Like I said, only enough air to have quiet, steady blue flame. If your not giving it enough air, you'll see dark soot on trailer above water heater, which indicates burning too rich, need more air, or perhaps pilot is partially plugged. Pilot flame should also be blue, not yellow/orange. Small air intake hole on side of fitting just before pilot tube can get spider web, or debris in it as well. Use air to blow that out or a piece of wire like a paper-clip to clean inside that hole.

The pilot light will not stay on for more than 5min. If I light the fire when its on,it just goes out. The fire is a Fusion 2/7


I assume this is a gas log? If so, you have dust in your pilot assembly. Turn everything off and let it cool. Note the opening where the pilot flames burns. Use the wand from your vacuum cleaner and place it over the opening for the pilot flame. Gently tap the side of the pilot assembly while holdign the vacuum above the opening. This will lift the minute dust particles out and allow the flame to burn nice and blue again. These logs have Oxygen Depletion Valves on them. The pilots are very sensitive to dust.

Charm glow gas heater won't stay lit changed thermocouple and it worked for 2 days


Dust build up inside the pilot light burner assembly. A clean pilot makes noise and has a blue flame when it is burning. A dirty pilot has a quiet and smaller flame with an orange tip.

My therma gas heater will not stay on . It ignits correctly, it also steps up to 3 pannels burning correctly, but you have to hold the grey gas button down for it to work. The pilot-type flame will not...


You need to replace the thermocouple. This is a small metal rod that is positioned in such a manner that when the pilot light is burning, the flame is contacting the thermocouple. When heated by the flame, the thermocouple produces a very small amount of electricity that it sends to the gas valve. The valve then interperets the electricity as confirmation that the pilot is burning and it is safe to conitinue delivering gas. Thermocouples wear out and stop producing power. The gas valve thinks that the pilot has gone out and thus turns the gas off for safety.

Pilot light seems to high


there may be an adjustment screw for pilot height. you'll have to look at the valve. a pilot should have an inner cone of greenish blue color and the surrounding flame should be a deep blue no yellow or orange tips. the pilot burns pure fuel no air. the main valve does mix air with the gas in order to burn.
