How long do you leave the pilot on before you turn on heat. The thermal pile will take 3-5 minutes to heat up before it will send a signal to gas valve. If thermal pile doesn't send signal then gas valve closes. You might need a new thermal pile.

I have a VC Wonderfire model 2610. The pilot flame is perfect blue on both sides... however, when I hit the switch for the main burner to come on...the pilot goes out... any ideas ???


You may have moved the safety sensor or pilot flame tip. The pilot light heats a wire. The wire is the safety sensor. The wire has to be clean and in the pilot flame near the flame tip.

My water heater won't light. The pilot light works. But, when I try to swtch the pilot to regualr, the flame goes out.


You probably have a defective thermocouple. The thermocouple sits in the flame of the pilot, and the heat generates a small electrical current conducted back to the gas valve, keeping the pilot gas line open after you switch it to the "on" position. That's why you have to manually hold the gas valve depressed (on) during lighting in the "pilot" position, allowing the thermocouple time to heat up enough to generate its current. A defective thermocouple will not generate the holding current.

How di i light the pilot light


Be sure that the gas line to the heater is ON.

Looking at the Control Knob on top of the heater, you note that he knob has 3- positions: OFF, Pilot, ON.

Turn the control knob to the Pilot position and push down on it. If it does not go all the way in and your do not feel strong pressure pushing back at you, it is not directly in the pilot position. (Reposition the knob slightly and try again). Once You're sure the knob is directly in the pilot position and the knob is depressed, continue to hold it in and press the Ignitor button next to it. You will hear a loud click. If possible, watch the pilot assembly inside the heater when you do this. That way you can see if the pilot lit the first time. If not repeat, pushing the ignitor.

If the gas line had been turned off to the heater, the pilot may not light the first couple of tries, due to air being in the gas line. If that is the case, hold the control knob in until you smell gas, let off, wait 5 minutes and repeat the lighting sequence.

Once the pilot does light, continue to hold the control knob in for 1 minute. This will allow the Thermocouple to heat up completely. Ease off the control knob and the pilot should remain lit. If it does, turn the control knob to ON and the burner will light.

Now you're ready to set the temperature or comfort level. You do this by raising or lowering the flame height. The higher the flames, the more heat it puts out. The lower the flames, the less heat it puts out. The stripe on the knob represents the flame heights - Narrow stripe, lowest setting, widest strip, highest setting. Or your specific model may simply say Low, Medium, High.

If you do not have the Owners Manual for this heater go to http://www.desatech.com/
click on Wall Heaters and enter the Model Number of your heater. You can then download and print the Owners Manual.

Hope this helped to get you up and runnig.

I just bought a brand new Kozy World blue flame heater and the pilot light will not stay lit and when it is lit, it goes out as soon as I turn up the nob.


The thermocouple is bad or not aligned properly. It is the metal bar in front of the pilot light. This bar senses the heat put off by the pilot light. If it does not get hot it will not allow the gas to flow. You either need to align it so that it is in front of the pilot light and receives enough heat to allow the gas valve to operate or possibly the thermocouple has gone bad and needs replacing.

It could also be that you are not waiting long enough. The thermocouple must sense the heat for at least one minute or more before it will let the gas valve turn on. Turn everything to off for at least five minutes. Re-light the pilot light and let it burn for at least one minute and then try turning the knob to on.

My patio mushroom heater lights up ok but keeps going out by itself after about 5 to 10 minutes and then can be started again inatantainiously by starting pilot light and away you go until it goes out...


Hello,
Here's a few things to check. When you light the pilot, is it a strong blue pilot flame, a weak blue flame or a lazy yellow flame? Is it heating the thermocouple enough to make it red hot after a few minutes? If the pilot is small blue or lazy yellow flame, it may be dirty and need cleaned. When the burner lights, the weak pilot flame may diminish causing the thermocouple to cool off enough to shut down the main burner. Clean the dirty pilot orifice by using a can of compressed air with attached straw. (The same canned air you use to clean computer keyboards) Blow it into the pilot assembly where the pilot flame burns out from and blow thru the air holes on the side, if applicable. You might also check the thermocouple itself to make sure the tip is not partially burn't off. It should be a smooth, rounded tip. Replace the thermocouple if cleaning the pilot orifice doesn't solve the problem. Douglas

Pilot turns on but when I switch to turn it on,


When you light the pilot, are you holding it down for 30-60 seconds. When you release the pilot button, does the pilot flame stay lit? Or does it only go out when you turn the knob to on position. Make sure the pilot flame is heating the end of the thermocouple and that it's a strong blue flame, not a lazy yellow pilot flame. Make sure the tip of the thermocouple is not burn't off, which usually happens with lazy yellow pilot flames. Replace thermocouple is nothing else works.

Pilot light goes out after when unit turns off> have replaced thermocouple and pilot lights instantly but after unit runs and cycles off pilot goes out. Flame from pilot appears to be too large


Either you have a weak gas valve that will have to be changed or thir may be a partial blockage in the vent system or crack in heat exchanger. Does the flame change when the blower comes on? If so, crack! Check the venting system to make sure it is getting good fresh air and no exhaust is being sucked back in.

My pilot light kept going out. I cleaned it


You may have to get a new thermocouple.

This is a small copper tube that goes from the pilot light area to tha gas valve.

It feels the heat from the pilot and keeps the gas valve open for gas to flow to the pilot or to the logs when in the lit position.

Without the gas valve will stay closed.

My heat n glow fireplace comes on fine with all burners running but shuts off about 5 seconds later. it seems the sensor that detects a flame thinks the fire has not started and shuts down the gas. Is...


You may have a few sensors, one may be a thermopile that energizes the pilot. It is a very thin but long bulb located in the pilot flame. Then you may have something called a thermopile which is also located in the pilot flame that energizes the main gas valve. It is a larger diameter bulb and will have metal wrapped wireg going to the gas valve. If the pilot stays on but the flame goes out under the logs, change your thermopile and look for a bad connection at the gas valve or switch. If both the main burner and the pilot goes out you may have a gas valve problem or a plugged vent pipe. If the flame just disappears it is most likely a gas valve. If the flame changes colors and lifts from the burner, that is a sign of a plugged vent. Good luck.

the little copper tube that sits in the pilot flame is faulty. this is called a flame sensor. replace this and you should have no problems
