Pressure is set, will fire, won't stay lit

I've checked the pressure and adjusted it. This heater was turned on by thermostat and kicked of and on several times throughough one day, then i turned it off for the night. Came back the next day and it would fire just for a second, might even fire 2 or 3 times, but will not stay lie after that first day. Any ideas?

    owners manual recommended 6.0 psi and set it to that. I found the solution.....out of fuel. The furnace was purchased 3 days ago and the guage read 3/4 of a tank. It was spraying fuel, but just enough to get the flame started. Yeah, don't trust the guage, they hang up really easy. I started to move it to a new place to work on it and didn't notice a slosh. Thanx tho

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.

Pilot light on the gas boiler won't stay lit it's


The pilot flame must touch (burn) the tip oqef the t-couple to hold the magnet in the gas value open.make sure the pilot orifice (hole) is clear.the pilot pressure (in the tube) is factory set full open & can only be adjusted down (less). Also check the gas **** didn't get closed or turned half way.? Assuming its not the t-couple. If all is good & it still won't stay on. Replace the gas value.!

Most gas water heater problems can be solved by having service technician perform yearly maintenance. Or by doing maintenance yourself.
This maintenance includes cleaning burner parts and combustion chamber, checking gas pressure and supply, bleeding air out of gas line, checking vent draft, making sure air supply is adequate and not exposed to chemicals, cleaning air intake. Also adjusting flame sensor so it is positioned correctly. If water heater is connected to electric circuit, the outlet must have correct polarity.

You can get gas to appliance indicates the gas control valve and water heater are not locked out. But the gas control valve thermostat can still be bad.

Pilot is lit but the heater won't fire up


A few things dictate when the main burner turns on. One is a thermocouple not getting hot enough, the other is a bad thermostat ot thermostat wire, and another is the gas valve. First look at the gas valve located on the heater and make sure it is in the On position and not in the Pilot position. Remove your thermostat and jump the two wires together. The heater should light. If not, go back to the gas valve and find the wires up to the thermostat, the should be attached to terminals marked TH and MV or something similar. Jump the terminals. The heater should start. If not, you may need to replace the thermocouple.
