Reliant 501 Natural Gas won't stay lit


Reliance water heater?
Thermocouple is good if the pilot stays lit continuously.

501 is older model. Unknown if this unit has FVIR protection and sealed combustion chamber or open air intake on front of unit.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Reliance-2006-Service-Handbook.pdf

With FVIR protection:
Get more fresh air to the unit.
Clean the flame arrestor screen.
Test and replace the thermocouple:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-thermocouple.html
Inspect and clean burner and combustion parts
Test gas pressure, bleed air out of gas line.
Replace gas control valve.
Test draft air by lighting match and see if smoke is pulled into the vent pipe at draft hood on top of tank.

I have a haywood H150 and checked current using a dcv meter and getting .56 volts from thermocoupler. Also checked current throughout unit and volts reading the same everywhere but pilot won't stay...


The solenoid inside the gas valve, the part that is supposed to assume the pilot light once the thermocouple is hot, is failing. You need a new gas valve. Your part number is HAXGSV0001 for natural gas or HAXGSVS0003 for propane.

Have electtric forced air 40.ooo, btu unit. have 10 psi regulator. am useing tank hookup from grill.wont stay lit.


I hope & pray, that the grill tank is not indoors with the heater. In any event, if you're using a grill regulator too, it's not going to provide the 11 to 13 water column inches of pressure that is required for 40,000 BTU's. That's why the heater wont stay lit. Nor, is it going to burn very long, as that grill tank only holds 2 gallons of gas

This is a gas appliance that is safe when installed and operated properly. Don't try to jury rig something that could come back to bite you in the end. Injuring or killing you and your family.

Propane heater wont stay running


is the sensor for the thermocouple located in the right spot in the flame,remove it and if you have access to a propane torch,heat the end till its red hot and leave it connected to the gas valve,then start the unit and this will tell you if the sensor is properly positioned in the pilot flame on the unit itself,if not you could have a defective new thermocouple or another safety device keeping it from staying lit or the gas valve is faulty

Pilot light wont stay lit


If this is a new item then you will need to let the gas run alittle bit longer. If this is a used item then it sounds like you are going to need to replace the flame sensor. You may have to even do it on the new item. But usually for the first start you willl need to hold the pilot down for about 1 minute to really let things heat up in there then when you release all will work
