SOURCE: Hi, my old Vulcan wall

Check if there is contact between the terminals of the thermostat using an ohm meter when set to a higher temp, if the reading is infinite or open, you have to replace the thermostat. Also check if the thermopile is receiving enough heat from pilot flame for it will generate a little amount of electricity to energize the main valve and fire up the burner.

SOURCE: 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

My pool heater doesn't come on. The pilot is lit, and the valve to the ON position. I turn the front knub to heat but when I turn the switch on the front panel to ON it doesn't fire on (...

If your pilot light is lit, then you do have some gas flow, so it is probably the thermocoupler (the part heated by the pilot light) that is not telling the gas valve to open the main line. Sometimes it is just a case of residue on the thermocoupler that is not letting it get up to temperature and sometimes it has been knocked out of alignment and the pilot light is not putting direct heat on it.

A cleaning with steel wool (don't overdo it) would take care of the residue, and you can GENTLY move the thermocoupler back over the pilot flame. If neither of that helps then replace the thermocoupler.
