When was the last time you cleaned the pilot? In your owners manual there is a cleaning procedure. If you can't find the manual, go to www.rinnai.us. You may be able to download one from their site.

SOURCE: Heater shutting off

It was suggested I clean the pilot. I bought pipe cleaners and cleaned the pilot and now it works as it should. Thank you for the help.

Any idea why my Atwood water heater will shut the main burner and the pilot light off at the same time? Sometimes runs for 20 minutes, sometimes 2. I hear a clicking sound, then they both shut off.


The thermostat shuts off the main burner.The pilot light gas is controlled by the thermocouple which the side of the pilot flame has to envelop. If the flame is too small or too far away from the flame, it shuts the gas off to the pilot. The thermocouple generates a small voltage which keeps the pilot gas open. It can over time fail itself, so look at replacing it. The thermostat sounds like it's failing too.

Y does my glw-warm heater keep shutting off


Is this an unvented heater? They have oxygen depletion sensors which shut off the heater to prevent burning up all the oxygen in the room. Heaters over 10,000 btu's should not be used in small rooms like bedrooms and bathrooms. Other causes could be a dirty pilot orifice. Turn off the unit (so pilot is off) and use a can of compressed air with attached straw, to blow out any dust from the pilot assembly. (Where the pilot flame comes out). This will allow the pilot to burn a strong blue color and keep the thermocouple heated properly. If it's a thermostatically controlled heater, make sure your thermostat bulb is cleaned off regularly. Dust will insulate the bulb from sensing the room temp and will not operate properly. Hope this helps.

Pilot light keeps going out


pilot light keeps going out! more then likely its the thermal coupling doing this. if bad it shut all gas to heater for a safety measure. just shut power off, then turn gas off and replace it. then you should be ready to go. to relight heater hold down on gas vavle knob in the pilot position, hold down and light it at the coupling where gas comes out. when it is lit, continue to hold down for 60 seconds. release knob very slow. then if its lit, turn to the run position. if flme goes out, wait at least 5 minutes to expel the gas fumes and turn to pilot and try again. good-day !

Our pilot light does not stay on...sometimes when temperature changes out side


The pilot light has a thermocouple that allows gas to the pilot light while the flame is burning. If flame goes out it shuts gas off to the pilot jet. It seems that your thermocouple is faulty and needs to be replaced if pilot light keeps going out as the outside air cools.

My pro comp heater will light the pilot but will not light the heater. It just sparks attempting to light, after a while it will shut off completely.


Could be your thermocouple. The spark should light the pilot and the pilot lights the main burner but if the thermocouple doesn't pick up the heat from the pilot the igniter will keep trying to light it until it times out and shuts off to prevent gas buildup.

VN18TB PILOT LITE GOES OUT STAY LITE TILL HEATER COMES ON AFTER THE HEAT RUNS AND TURNS OFF THE PILOT LITE SHUTS OFF NATURAL GAS VANGUARD


Sounds like a weak thermocouple. With the extra heat of the main burner running it can keep the pilot solenoid open...without it it fails shut. Try replacing the thermocouple. (small rod the pilot flame burns against with a skinny copper tube going to gas valve).

Water wizard 10P pilot light keeps going out


If the thermocoupler is defective the gas to everything is shut off. The coupler is the bulb that sits ib the pilot flame If it doesn't heat up it will sense no pilot and shut the gas off. They don't cost much and are easy to change. Good Luck, Ned
