Question about GPS
Hi. We just moved to NH and the house has a propane heater in the basement. I've never used propane and have no idea where the pilot light is located. We've looked over the heater and the instructions 'imply' a level of knowledge on the various components that we don't have. I would appreciate some clear direction, if possible.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

John Mac here...the solution was that we had shut the pilot off for the summer, and birds had made a nest inside the heat exchanger...coming in through the direct vent. Cleaned out the nest, and it works perfectly. My technician recommends that I leave the pilot buring through the summer to prevent this in the future.

Could be a number of things
Sounds like it the gas valve. If the gas Valve isn't opening or is burnt out then no gas will flow through it.
Also it the pilot is blocked then you wont get and gas coming through to light it up.
I am forever replacing gas valves on the buffalo series units and have found this to be quite a common problem on older units.

SOURCE: Pilot light keeps going out
Dan, Since you just had the tank filled and the heatewr installed a tinty piece of trash could have entered the pilot orfice. Un do the lower floor panel take off the pilot assy. Blow out the small pilot orfice. Blow reverse from normal gas flow to unlodge the debre. Re asemble and light.
If this dosen't work It may be the pilot air intake is too open causing the pilot to blow itself out.If thats the case close off the air adjustment some. It will be located behind where the flame exits the pilot orfice.

Check with Ebay seller s.a.w.inc for available thermocouples. If that doesn't solve the problem the valve unit will likely need replaced.

sounds like an obstruction in pilot assembly.try using canned compressed air to blow directly into pilot. this technique is successful about 70%. if not,pilot assembly must be removed and cleaned thorougly
