Why does my pilot light keep going out when heating is on ?


Water heater and house heater are sharing the same vent?
Then vent is bad, and heater is pushing combustion by-product down into the water heater and blowing out pilot.
Call technician immediately to avoid CO poisoning.
Look for black soot on top of water heater... test the vent:

How do you relight the pilot light after it has blown out or the gas supplied has been turned off.


Instructions for relighting pilot on Tankless water heater are in the product manual:
Model number is on label located on side of unit.
Open following link to help identify product and download possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Bosch-Tankless-water-heater.html

For tank-type water heater, the lighting instructions are usually printed on side of tank in addition to the product manual.

Find the model number and re-post question with as much information as possible for more assistance.

My heater is not getting hot i can not tell if their is a pilot light or a reset button i don know what to do with the heater it is very different how can i heat my water heater


Reliance makes gas and electric water heaters.
http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/

Best way to start is to look at label on side of tank.
Label has serial number, model number, plus it will say if heater is gas or electric.
Reliance water heater age is shown in serial number: first digit is letter, second two digits are numbers: for example numbers 02 would be the year 2002.
If water heater is 8-12 years old, it might be time to consider new tank.

Gas water heater has 3 inch metal flue pipe coming out of top of tank.
Gas pilot is probably off.
Relight pilot light: Most gas water heaters today have instructions on side of tank just above gas valve that say how to relight pilot light. Instructions vary by model.
If you have gas water heater that is older, it might be easier to call a plumber.

Electric water heater has panels on front.
Open top panel and push in red reset button.
If you have electric water heater of any age, you can usually fix it yourself same day:

Pilot light goes out after every use(shower).It must be relit each time


If the pilot is going out after it cycles this is normally the gas valve that is cutting off the pilot after the heater is satisfied. The only exception to this is if your heater is very old you may try to change the thermocouple first. However, if this does not work then it sounds like the gas valve.
Please refer to the manufacturer for the correct parts your heater uses. You will normally find the manufacturer's phone number on the side of your heater along with your model and serial number.

PILOT LIGHT KEEPS GOING OUT.


If the pilot flame is weak, when the main burner is ignited, there can be enough 'whoosh' of air and gas to blow out the pilot. There may be a little of grit in the pilot valve jet hole restricting the flow, hence the weak flame. Try using a piece of fine wire to clear the obstruction. If that does not help the pilot jet will have to be unscrewed and cleaned with compressed air. Ensure the gas is turned off before attempting any maintenance.

I have a 40 galon GE Smart shield water heater, Model: SH40T12AVH00, Serial # GELN0805V13908. The pilot light is lit but the burner will not stay on for more than 2 secods and then shuts-off.


I believe this unit does not have a standing pilot light and lights each time? Have you reinstalled all doors back into the heater? It sounds like the main burner is blowing the pilot off the thermocouple. You might try replacing the thermocouple. You can download a manual here: http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SpecPage&Sku=SG40T12AVH00

Why does the pilot light keep going out?


Make sure your pilot flame is hitting the thermocoupler. If not then use air to clean pilot port and try again.

Pilot light keeps going out


Either the pilot light orfice is dirty, and you will need to pull it out and clean it, or the thermocouple is bad. If the pilot goes out as soon as you let the button go then it is most likely the thermocouple. If the pilot stays lit for a few days or hours then you will need to clean the pilot orfice, heres how:
1 turn off the gas supply
2 unhook the main burner gas line from the thermostat, this is the line that goes to the burner
3 unhook the pilot supply line it is usually next to the main burner line
4 unhook the thermocouple from the thermostat
5 remove the burner assembly
6 take the orfice out of the pilot line and clean it out by blowing thru it, use an air compressor if needed.
7 reassemble and light pilot
