Pilot went out. While attempting to re-light it, it stayed on as long as the shaft was depressed (more than two minutes). When the depression was relaxed, the pilot went out...tried it three times. Is the pilot too low? It did not seem low. Can the strength of the flame be increased? It's two feet below floor level.

Re: Floor furnace pilot won't stay on.
Change the flame sensor (Thermocouple) Then go ahead and fire it up. If the flame sensor is not sensing the flame you will be able to light the pilot then everything will shut off. There is a way to agjust the pilot but 99.9% of the time the adjustment is ok, Specially with a floor furnace so change the thermocouple and you will be ok. You can get one at Ace, Home Depot Lowes, or a local appliance store

You have a gas washing machine? If you are talking about a dryer, shut off gas valve, get a vaccuum and clean burner area well, then make sure connections are tight and the line to pilot light is not crimped, and hold match near pilot light while turning on gas.
Go back to Lowe's with all receipts including the your purchase receipt, the plumber's bills and whatever records you have while speaking to the Whirlpool technician, and raise hell. What water heater is unsuited for your home?? Is Whirlpool crazy? Lowe's would not sell you an inappropriate water heater. You should have done this 3 months ago.
i think there might be some programming fault . so set the timer again or
start pause button
after having selected the required programme press this button to start the machine the corressponding pilot light stop falshig. to interrupt the programme which is running depress the start/ pause button the corresponding light start to flash. to restart the programme from the point at which it was interupteed press the start/puase bitton again.
Turn the gas knob to the PILOT position Press down and hold whilst lighting the pilot When the flame holds on its own turn the knob to the ON position. Then turn on the wall thermostat or whatever you have to control the fireplace.
if the pilot light is working it must be the thermal bulb is not sensing the heat, you can try and use a long nosed lighter and try to heat the bulb up and turn the gas on and the added heat might help it kick on. Give it a try.
It should have a diagnostic set of leds on the board, with the code list on the door and the control board itself. If it get to the pilot stage and the shuts down its most likely the gas valve. You can check for continuity from mv to c on valve, you should have it. Then with a valtage test from mv to a ground or common as you here the next click of a relay on the board after the pilot has had a few seconds.
This model should be electronic ignition and does not use a pilot light. The igniter may be faulty.or the gas module may be faulty. Pilots are a thing of the past! This requires a tech to test it with equipment.
