Question about Heating & Cooling
Gas flow is good and Pilot is remaining lit with strong flame Changed thermo-coupler and cleaned pilot areas and burners(3 burners) Checked fan and electrical - All is working properly- Fan starts when turned on Also replaced thermostat When thermostat is turned up the burners will not start up - suspect that natural gas is not being fed to the burners although a continuous gas flow is being fed to the pilot
The gas valve is not lifting hence no gas flow , check pressure switch if fitted jump out thermostat see if it lights ,

sounds like your thermacouplar is going out and needs replaced. Sometimes these will act like they are working fine , but when the pilot stays on for awhile and later goes out it is a sure sign that it is bad

Go to www.grainger.com and look for a "power pile generator" this is a millivolt thermocouple that may be just what you need to make your heater work again

Hi, this heater doesn't have a thermocouple, it uses a pilot generator which is more reliable so I doubt you need to change it out. First thing to check is that you have a clean "sharp" blue pilot, you should be able to hear it quietly roar. If it is yellow and appears "soft", the pilot need to be cleaned. The easiest way is to use a straw or tubing of some sort to blow into the pilot, gently tapping the pilot assembly. That should clean it up and heat the pilot generator properly. Tighten the the screw terminals at the control valve to assure good electrical connections and last but not least turn off the thermostat until you get a standing pilot. Good luck and stay warm.
