Well you have a old furnace which is hard to light ,so here goes there is a round plate on the front above the gas valve about 8inches up remove this plate ,there may be a second plate ? you need to look down to the burner to see the pilot (alight we help you see it ) A flexable BBU light in needed so you can get it to light the pilot not easy but this way works .

SOURCE: Pilot light keeps going out on furnace. Ruud gas furnace, (20+)

When a pilot lite habitually goes out the thermocople has failed. The are pretty cheap. If you remove yours and go to a local applicane parts center they can provide you with one the same lenght as your current one for a much cheaper price than a plumbing and heating source. In the process of changing the thermocouple when you disconnect it from the gas control valve take a Q-tip and clean the mating area as best you can. You can try cleaning that mating area before changing the thermocouple first. You might just get lucky and not have to buy a new one.
This is not a hard task. It is a bit tedious to get to the area near the flame head but I am pretty sure you can do this. Just make sure the new thermocople is positioned like the one you removed.

There is a very very remote possibility that the gas control itself is failing but I doubt it. You still would have to change the thermocouple first in order to troubleshoot.

Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: The pilot will not stay lit in our Cozy Direct

There is a wind shield for this unit, call 502-589-5380 and ask for a drawing for the wind shield and have it made out of 26 gauge sheet metal.

Why wont furnace light past the thermol coupler


There is really not enough information here to go on. If this furnace has a thermocoupling, the pilot will need to be lit manually. Follow the manufacturers lighting instructions carefully. If it still will not light you may have a dirty pilot assembly or a defective gas valve. Modern furnaces do not use a thermocoupling. There is no standing pilot light. Each time the furnace needs to be lit it will be done electronically. Many reasons why it wont light in this case. Safety control could be preventing it from lighting for safety reasons. A bad ignitor, ignition module, circuit board, gas valve, pressure switch, gas supply, induced draft motor, blocked or restricted flue pipe, cracked heat exchanger, dirty flame sensor, ect. ect. ect.

How to light a pilot light on a gas furnace


If your gas furnace is an older type with a standing pilot light, this video is for you.


If your furnace is a newer, more efficient type, it most like has either an Electronic Spark Ignitor or Hot Surface Ignitor that does not allow you to relight.

REMEMBER: If you don't have a CO Detector less than 5 years old in both your main living area and in your bedroom - get them today. CO is colorless, odorless, and deadly.

Why heater coils glow?


It sounds like you're describing one of two things. The hot surface ignitor in a gas-fired furnace, or the resistive heat strips in an electric furnace.

The hot surface ignitor in a gas-fired furnace lights the burners. This ignitor in modern furnaces serves the same purpose as the standing pilot flame did in older furnaces. It provides the required heat to ignite the gas at the burners. Without an ignition source, a gas-fired furnace cannot provide heat. When the ignitor is activated it will glow bright orange or yellow.

The resistive heat strips in an electric furnace actually provide the heat to a home or building. When the furnace turns on, the heat strips are activated and usually glow orange when they reach peak temperature. In almost all cases, the heat strips are not easily seen or accessed without removing covers or panels inside the furnace.

Where is the pilot light located on the furnace?


Depending on what kind of furnace you have and how old it is, you may not have a standing pilot. Newer furnaces use electronic ignition systems. Hot surface ignitors and spark ignition.

How to light a American Standard furnace


If it is an old furnace with a manual pilot light there are pilot lighting instructions usually on a door or panel. If it is 15 years old or newer it probably has either a spark ignition or a hot surface ignitor. These can't be lit manually. If they fail they usually require parts to be repaired.

Pilot light?


If memory serves me right you do not have a pilot on that furnace. You have a hot surface ignitor. You should not see a continuous flame inside. You may have a bad ignitor.
