    Does it go out when you turn the knob on the gas valve to the "on" position or does it go out when you turn on the furnace with the thermostat? I would like to help:)

You either have a bad thermocouple or you need to reset the burner control.

There's a little screw that adjusts the pilot light. It is usually on the block with all the other valves. Follow the pilot lite supply line to where the screw probably is located.

My Kozy heater turns off after a few minutes, I then have to re light it and when it kicks on again after a few mins it turns off again. It will stay lite if I turn it down but when it goes on agin it will...


If you have a standing pilot that wont stay lit and you have to keep relighting it, it can only be a couple of things that will do this.
1. Try tighting the thermocouple at the gas valve. (this is a thin copper line that goes from the gas valve and goes to the pilot light.)
2. Make sure that the tip of the thermocouple is in the pilot light flame.
3. Make sure that the thermocouple is clean.

I can not lite the pilot


Turn the control knob to "pilot", while holding the knob down, press the piezoelectric spark button repeatedly until you see the pilot light through the observation glass. Once its lit, hold the button for approximately 30 secs. If it stays lit when you release the knob, turn to "on" Then operate normally. If the piezoelectric is not sparking, you can open the glass and light manually. Good luck and please rate my answer if it was helpful.

Pilots lites , holds ok for minutes,but once move


Hello KJGreen, It sounds, based on your description, as though the thermocouple is faulty and should be replaced. If the pilot light stays lit and you've left it on for several minutes before turning the knob on to light the log set, then that indicates that the thermocouple is bad.

The thermocouple is a safety device (heat sensor) designed to stop the flow of gas to the burner in the event the gas flame goes out and the pilot goes out. The sensor will only allow the gas valve to open once it has reached the preset temperature.

To confirm that the thermocouple is defective, I would light the pilot light and allow it to remain lit for up to 10 minutes before I attempted to turn on the log burner. If, after 10 minutes, the log burner still won't stay lit, then you know that the thermocouple needs to be replaced. Otherwise, the burner should light, since after 10 minutes, the sensor should be hot enough to signal the gas valve to open.

If you are going to have this replaced, please make sure you use only an approved supplier, since an incorrect replacement part could cause an unwelcome malfunction of the gas log burner. Safety should be primary when dealing with open flame burners.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

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

Rinnai wall heater won't lite.


You may need to take the pilot assembly apart and clean the pilot orifice. If the pilot does not stay lite you may need a new thermocouple. Good Luck.
