Question about Williams 1403622 Gas Compact Heater

1 Answer

Pilot light keeps cutting off

I have a Williams wall LPG gas heater that is about 8 years old and the it keeps cutting off.
The pilot light will not stay on unless I try and adjust the copper tubbing from the gas valve (sensor that detects gas). If I move this tube around the pilot will stay on and heater will work fine for about two days or it may work for seveal hours then cut off. I then have to adjust the tubing to get it to work.
I have taken the tube out of the valve and made sure it is good and clean.
I have tried to find this part (tubing, thermocouple) but no luck.
Seems like there is nothing wrong with the copper tubing.
Could there be water or air pockets in the gas line coming into the house?
Where can I find this part? The part number is PIL3291
Thanks

How do you turn the pilot light back on? This is an older model, probably about 10 years old or so.


Move the gas valve knob to the PILOT position and press down on the knob. You will be pressing down on a spring loaded safety magnet. Now light the pilot and keep holding down the knob till the thermocouple gets hot enough to produce electrical current and hold that spring loaded magnet in. This is your safety device. If the heat gets too hot the furnace has a fuse in line with that magnet.
When the pilot stays lit by itself without you having to hold down the button then advance the knob to the ON position. Then go to the wall thermostat and turn on the heater.

Williams debonair wall heater + pilot light problems


THE flame from the pilot should shoot past the thermo-couple and heat this up and make a small amount of mili- amps to prove the pilot light is lit. ..So if the flame doesn,t go past the thermo-couple it won, make mili-amps or its tme to change out the thermo-couple, They only cost lest than $8:00 and you can change it!
