When I try to use my Thermolaire model SU402E, the pilot lights( and stays lit), but the main burner will NOT ignite.. any suggestions as to what could cause this if the pilot stays lit?


Bad igniter? When you 1st try it the gas valve will give enough gas that you would get the burner lit if the igniter was glowing red. If you're desperate you can light the igniter area w/ an aim n flame, but you definitely want to do that w/ caution and crank up your t-stat so the furnace stays on awhile Cuz you'll have to do it again for heat or buy an igniter($40 or so)

American range fryer will not light...the knob you turn to light the pilot light will not turn.you can push it in but won't turn.please help


From the Owners' manual:
LIGHTING
1. Before attempting to light this appliance, the door if so equipped, shall be open.
2. Turn the appliance manual gas shut-off valve to the OFF position.
3. Turn the combination gas control knob to the OFF position.
4. Turn the thermostat control to the OFF position.
5. Wait 5 minutes.
6. Turn the appliance manual gas shut-off valve to the ON position.
7. Turn the combination gas control knob to the PILOT position.
8. Light the pilot with a match while depressing and holding the combination gas control knob until the pilot remains
lit upon releasing the gas control knob.
9. Turn the combination gas control knob to the ON position.
10. Turn the thermostat control knob to the desired temperature to turn burners ON.
11. Ensure that the door is closed during operation.
12. For complete shut-down, repeat steps 2, 3, and 4.

It won't turn any further until the pilot is lit and stays lit.

My heat won't come on.


Newer furnaces do not have a pilot light. If yours does, you will have to relight it. Find the gas valve inside the furnace and follow the lighting directions. Generally, you turn the valve to the pilot position, press a button and hold it while you light the pilot. Hold it for about a minute and then release. If the pilot stays lit, then you can go ahead and set the thermostat to call for heat. If it does not stay lit, or the furnace still will not light, I think you need to call a repairmen or someone with knowledge of how to troubleshoot the problem.

My jotul 200 direct vent gas stove pilot light won't stay lit. The pilot lights normally, and fires when the thermostat calls for heat. But when it turns off the pilot goes out as well. We cleaned ou


There's a little screw that adjusts the pilot light. It is usually on the block with all the other valves. Follow the pilot lite supply line to where the screw probably is located.

How do i light pilot light?


Remove front cover,or just lower section if you can. they usually just need to be lifted up about an inch or so and pulled out. However some have covers that snap in place. After you remove cover locate gas valve. It should have a control knob on top with markings for on, off, and pilot. Set control to pilot. Follow lines from gas valve to burner compartment, one goes to main burner one ,small copper colored line is the thermocouple, other line is the pilot. Turn thermostat down as far as it will go. Make sure gas supply valve in line to heater is on and then depress pilot control , when you have pilot control depressed have a match or other small flame source close to pilot assembly. If it lights then hold down on pilot control for a couple of mins. Slowly release pilot control and if it stays lit turn gas control to on. Turn thermostat up to call for heat and burner should light. If pilot doesn't stay lit when you release pilot control then try again holding pilot down longer. If it still won't stay lit then thermocouple will need replace. Good luck. Thanks

Im calling for heat from the thermastat and control panel, the boiler light and and the fan is running, but no matter how many times i keep re trying the pilot and burner will not commence, is there...


I would check to make sure control on gas valve is in on position and pilot is lit if you have a standing pilot. If you have a spark or hot surface ignitor make sure they are trying to lit pilot. If you have standing pilot model and pilot lit is not on. Turn control on gas valve to off,wait five mins. then turn to pilot. Depress botton and try to light pilot. If it lights hold down for a couple of mins. then release.. If pilot stays lit turn control to on. If thermostat is calling for heat this should bring main burner on. If pilot does not stay lit then replace thermocouple. Hope this helps. Thanks

How do i relight my standing wall heater light, where is it?


There should be a removable panel on the bottom front. Remove this panel and you should see gas valve with two lines going into combustion chamber. The larger of the two will be for burner and the smaller to the pilot light. There may be lighting instructions on the inside of panel,or on front of burner compartment. If not look at gas valve and see if you can see where it is marked off pilot and on. Turn thermostat to lowest setting and gas valve to pilot ,locate pilot light and hold match to it while you depress pilot button . Pilot should light. If it does hold button depressed for 1 to 2 mins. Release pilot button and if pilot stays lit turn valve to on. Turn thermostat up to desired setting and see if burner comes on. If it does you should be done. Put cover back on. If pilot light does not stay lit or burner won't light I Would recommend you call a service tech as there are several things that could be wrong. Hope this helps you.Thanks

Try cleaning the orfice for the pilot light. You will have to dis-assemble the fuel lines from the thermostat to the burner to get at it. The orfice has an extremly small hole in it, do not make it any larger, just clean it out.
