My Armstrong gas furnace model #m921-g6 pilot blew out and now I can't get it to stay lighted .


Most instruction are similar but read How to light pilot carefully.
Did you apply a flame to the thermocouple until you could have pilot light lite?
most will have you hold flame for a couple minutes then rotate knob to on from pilot position.
remember be careful with gas and if still issue call plumber.

Why does burners and pilot forced off after burners are engaged


We get asked this question many times.

If you light your pilot light, hold in the button and then when you release it and the pilot light goes out, generally you need a new thermocouple. Gas repairs can only be undertaken by a qualified gas technician so you can't do this job yourself.

The thermocouple is a safety device that recognises that the pilot has a good flame and is enough to ignite the main burners. The thermocouple open that valve to the burner.

In limited circumstances the thermocouple doesn't need replacing, either the shield that aims the flame to the thermocouple has become dislodged, or the pilot jet is a little blocked by debris. Either way, having the appliance serviced by a qualified gas fitter is the way to go. I am sure you will have seen news stories about explosions caused by gas leaks and faulty appliances.

Not light


check to make sure that the poilet lite flame is touching the tip or top of the thermocouple.
the pilot lite needs to heat up the thermocouple so that the thermocouple opens the gas to the main gas log. a cold thermocouple shuts off the gas to the main gas log or gas burner and a hot thermocouple opens the gas to the main burner.
the pilot lite flame must be touching the thermocouple to heat it up.
pilot lite orface needs to be clear to let the pilot flame gas through with enough pressure so that the little flame can reach & touch the thermocouple. Pilot lite gas feed tube must be clear to let gas through. Use compressed air or a fine sewing needle, or even carb cleaner to clear out orface hole and gas feed line to pilot lite.

important!! WARNING:
if you use carb cleaner,make sure all the carb cleaner is dry,soaked up with paper towell or kleanex tissue and blowed out with compressed air , because carb cleaner can burn just like gasoline; so any carb cleaner must be compleatly gone before you attempt to lite the pilot lite.

Pilot lite won't stay lit


Thermostat flame sensor. Do you see a little rod next to the pilot? That is what tells the main gas valve that the pilot is lit and it is safe to give gas. Easy swap, and you can usually just pick up a generic one.

It runs out of fuel


sound like pilot lite is not getting thermocouple hot.
check that pilot lite flame is extending out to and touching thermocouple. If not, clean out pilot lite orface and pilot lite gas feed pipe all the way back to the main gas valve if necessary.
If pilot lite flame is touching thermocouple, then replace thermocouple

It's easier to replace the entire Pilot Assembly. The Part Number is 78422 and you can order it direct from Mr. Heater. For parts call 800-251-0001. It should run about $30.00.

Hope this helps you. Please let me know.

Pilot lights but main burner dose not light when turned on


possibly a fowled thermocouple if the thermocouple doesn's sense the pilot flame then it will not send a signal to the gas valve telling it that its okay to open cause the pilot is lit.

Laars lite 2 pool heater burner not lite


If the pilot flame is not strong enough, it will not tell the gas valve to open, or if the gas valve is not getting the signal to open, it won't. Check all wire connections at the thermostat and gas valve. Check ground wires. Clean the pilot light and flame rod.
