Pilot Light won't stay lit on wall furance

New Wall Furnace. I connected the thermostat and tried lighting the pilot light. Held pilot button in for a minute or more and it still goes out when I release the button. Tried many times. I see thermocouple replacement mentioned many times here on this board but this unit is brand new. Can the wiring I did for the Thermostat have anything to do with it?

Thanks for any help

    The person I was trying to help to get it to work wound up calling someone who knew about the furnace and they got it going. No sure what the fix was.

    Thanks for your input

The low voltage wiring and the thermostat has noting to do with the pilot function of the wall furnace, check to see if when you have the pilot lit manually, while holding the button in does the flame impinge on the thermocouple and does the flame try to wrap around the thermocouple? if not the thermocouple and pilot flame need to be adjusted so that it impinges on the TC, if it does have a good flame impingment, then you probably have a bad TC from the factory, call them and have them send you a new one if still under warrenty.

Pilot light lights but will not stay lit with full Propane tank.


Unscrew the thermocouple at the gas valve. Lightly sand the connections,seat and thermocouple end. Sometimes the tiny current generated that keeps a gas valve open will be diminished by corrosion. don-ohio

My Coleman furnace 4322/729 model lights the pilot but won't cut in . What could be problem ? Cleared lines Complete


Gas valve not opening? Does it have the exhaust blower that pulls vacuum switch allowing burner to light?
(1) Thermostat not working? Has to complete the circuit in or gas valve to open.
(2)Can be a stuck or bad gas valve. Try tapping the side of the gas valve body while thermostat is calling for heat. Tapping,not pounding. Like lightly,yannow? don-ohio (:^)

Cannot get gas to flow to pilot flame with main valve parallel to gas pipe. Is there something I must push to make gas flow to the pilot flame pipe?


you said, in effect: Cannot get gas to light the pilot flame even though manual supply valve is open. Is there something I must push to light [ignite] the pilot? Permalink
The gas supply valve is open, and the pilot gas cutoff valve is open but [it seems like] gas will not flow to the pilot flame because it will not light when I supply a match or lighter flame. I remember there is a button or something I need to press...but where it it? I cannot find it.
