The pilot light does not remain on when the button is released. While holding the button in and turning on the water no ignition happens. Gas cylinder is full. Please assist. Thanks! Mark


Your gas valve works in conjunction with a therm o electric valve it is a 2 stage operation. 1 is when you push it in and light the pilot. 2 is when you release the button. This prevents full gas to the burner and prevents ignition taking place if the pilot light fails. The thermo-couple provides a small electric current around 30ma which holds the therm o electric valve open and in turn keeps the pilot light on. The thermo-couple needs to be replaced, if it still cuts out then ths therm o electric valve which is a n integral part of the gas valve has failed and a replacement gas valve would be needed.

Pilot light keeps cutting out


Most water heaters have a small screen underneath them. When this screen gets clogged with dust or debris, the pilot does not get enough oxygen to stay lit. Use a brush attachment on a vacuum and clean it out.

Why does the pilot light keep going out?


Make sure your pilot flame is hitting the thermocoupler. If not then use air to clean pilot port and try again.

My pilot light will light, but will not stay lit? I have a gas whirpool water heater aprox 1 1/2 years old.Thisis the first time we have encountered any problems with our appliance.


Once the flame has struck it heats up a thermocouple that in turn holds the gas valve open

It is a safety measure in case the flame blows out and the gas keeps on coming.

Sometimes the end of the thermocouple gets dirty and a scrub with a fine emery board does the trick

If not it is a new part (They are not that expensive)
