Two burner Infra-red wall heater. How can pilot flame be ajusted?


if the flame is more than 2" high, most likely faulty unit. I've not seen that brand that was adjustable. OKC Mont

Pilot flame seems too high. How can I adjust and how tall should flame be?


The pilot flame should be a firm blue color impinging directly on the thermocouple enough to turn it red hot after a few minutes. Generally, the pilot flame need not go past the thermocouple more than a 1/4 - 3/8" and should not be a lazy yellow color. As far as adjustment to the pilot flame, it depends on the heater brand you have. Look at the gas control for a small adjustment screw near where the silver pilot tubing connects from it (it connects to the pilot assembly on the other end). Adjusting it counter-clockwise will lower the flame size, if necessary. If the pilot has a lazy yellow flame, the pilot orifice may just be dirty. With the pilot flame off, use a can of compressed air (with attached straw) to blow out any debris/dust from inside the pilot assemble where the orifice is. Good luck.

Pilot light pressure to high blowing itself out, any advice?


pilot should sound like a little jet and not have a lazy flame. My instincts tell me your pilot is fine but you have a faulty thermocouple or the pilot flame is not hitting it good.

Pilot flame flickers when burners on and drops out valve


You should either do a smoke test or use a candle to check for drafts to be sure that it is not a gas pressure issue.

Converted HotPoint RGA720 to LP, burners and oven work fine, all pilots flames are still too high?


I have this model too and have had to replace two thermocouples because the pilot is so high it frys them. We replaced the whole modulator last time and it still goes out so I have to relight The pilot is at the lowest setting, it's a GE/Hotpoint issue that was not recalled. I do like the hot 125 degree oven for drying sun dried tomatoes and keeping plates warm.

Pilot light wont stay lit, even when on high


Pilot lights are supposed to stay on when the flames are burning. If they didn't the flames would go out, because the pilot flame against the Thermocouple keeps the pilot burning. It's a safety feature.

Pool heater pilot lights, goes out when heat called for


No, that would just cause you to have huge flame. There is another high pressure switch located next to the flame sensor/ pilot genator that can cause this problem it is the size of a quarter and is screwed down with 2 phillip head screws

Flame goes out


If this unit has a pilot flame, the breather around the pilot flame has become dusty. The best way to clean it out is with high pressure air.
It wouldn't hurt to clean with high pressure air anyhow.
See how that goes.

Pilot adjustment on Williams wall heater


The insert sounds like the cap covering the adjustment screw. Pin hole is for cap removal. Wondering why flame is so high?! Shouldn't have orange flame. If heater doesn't light with lower flame... thermocouple (thing that the flame heats up) may be bad.
