SOURCE: pilot light goes out

The Tstat has a capillary that looks like a thermocouple but it isn't, its a bulb with liquid that expands and contracts based on temperature. A pilot can go out due to a high limit switch being week or getting to hot and that can be shaped like a thermostat capillary or can be simply a disc with a button if even there is a high limit on your stove. There likely isnt. So see the next suggestion.
I suggest lighting the pilot, turning on the main burners while watching the pilot. If the pilot shrinks in size, then check your gas pressures before and after turning it on and seeing if there is a wide variation. I would suggest the pilot is dirty or the pressure regulator is faulty.

SOURCE: TEC Sterling II, Pilot light

The gas may not be reaching the burners. Try match lighting a burner to see if it is. If it isn't do the following.

To solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. If you're using as 1 Lb
Canister tank. Turn the valve off and remove the canister.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Reinsert the canister.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. Or you will have to replace the Canister Assembly. For that you'll have to go to Tec Grills. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

There could be several issues here. First is the pilot is weak. You may have something clogging the pilot oriface, or it could be turned down too low. Second is the thermocouple could be bad. And last, the main control valve could be bad. There are some tests that can tell you which of the last two may be your issue but they generally require a qualified tech.

Not light


check to make sure that the poilet lite flame is touching the tip or top of the thermocouple.
the pilot lite needs to heat up the thermocouple so that the thermocouple opens the gas to the main gas log. a cold thermocouple shuts off the gas to the main gas log or gas burner and a hot thermocouple opens the gas to the main burner.
the pilot lite flame must be touching the thermocouple to heat it up.
pilot lite orface needs to be clear to let the pilot flame gas through with enough pressure so that the little flame can reach & touch the thermocouple. Pilot lite gas feed tube must be clear to let gas through. Use compressed air or a fine sewing needle, or even carb cleaner to clear out orface hole and gas feed line to pilot lite.

important!! WARNING:
if you use carb cleaner,make sure all the carb cleaner is dry,soaked up with paper towell or kleanex tissue and blowed out with compressed air , because carb cleaner can burn just like gasoline; so any carb cleaner must be compleatly gone before you attempt to lite the pilot lite.

Pool Heater Light main burner then goes out


take millivolt reads while main burner is on.i suspect you will see a drop in voltage until you get to point where it will no longer operate burner(around 200mv).if this is the case you probably have poor pilot characteristics due to dirty pilot,pilot out of adjustment ,obstruction or insufficient gas pressure

Main burner will not light. pilot has now gone out


shut off the gas at the gas **** and gas valve. the pilot tube is held in place by a 7/16 compression nut. remove it then remove the 2 screws for the thermopile "generator". follow the pilot tube and the pilot assembly should be held in by one or two screws. usually you don't have to remove the main burners. hopefully this helps
