SOURCE: I have a coleman furnace with a pilot light that

Remove the burner and gas valve from the furnace and use compressed air to blow the area under the pilot area ans all around it. The dust and stuff usually cause a condition called "Lazy Pilot" and the flame is probably not going in the designed directions. While you have it out Id replace the thermocouple with a new one reassemble and re-lite and note the difference. The flame should be mostly Blue and no yellow (or vary little at the top end of the flame only) Orange in the top area indicates a good burning flame and the closer to the base the bluer it gets.


While you have the burner out look inside and inspect the inner heat exchanger for cracks or rusted open holes there should be none. Turn on your fan while inspecting and see if you feel the steady blow of air from it inside the heat exchanger indicating a hole. Don't confuse the air that may come down the flue with the air from the blower though. A little breeze is expected from this.

This will take care of over 90% of the problems with the "Blow out" symptom.

If you still have problems you can try and "turn up the pilot". Usually a screw close to the pilot tubing is covering the adjustment screw. Put some soap bubbles around it so you can see if it leaks or not and turn the screw out for more flame (CCW) and in (CW) for less.

Hope this helps Please grade me accordingly and good luck.

Is there any way I can relight my pilot light by myself? The fan is on but the furnace is not heating up.


You should never attempt to manually relight the pilot on this model. It has a hot surface igniter that is probably cracked. Most HVAC techs carry theses on their service trucks. However you may find one at an Ace hardware store in more rural communities for 30-$75.00. The higher priced ones are for the more universal replacements.

Hi, I have an amanna sv80 natural gas furnace, I lost power to my home , my question is will the pilot need to be re-lit or will the furnace restart on its own? Thank you


The pilot light will be fine it is gas. The only way you need to relight pilot light is if you turn off the gas. The furnace should restart itself when the power comes back on.

Pilot light is out of our coleman 7900 mobile home furnace and we can't get it re-ignited


The thermo couple or the gas valve itself is most likely bad. Cheap enough to start with the thermo couple.

The pilot light for the oven went out.



Relighting Your Furnace's Pilot Light

furnace1.jpg - Turn off the gas at the main valve at your utility box - Wait five to ten minutes for gas fumes to waft away - Get a long match—yes, a fireplace match, not a standard match - Set the gas valve on your furnace to "pilot" - Press the red button as you hold the match to the pilot valve - Keep pressing the red button for 30-60 seconds so the pilot can heat the thermocouple. Release the button and see if the pilot remains lit - If pilot goes out, wait five to ten minutes and repeat the process - Once the pilot stays lit, turn the main gas valve back on - If the pilot light continues to go out, call a technician, who may need to adjust or replace your thermocouple or adjust your pilot
