Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Floor furnace pilot won't stay on.

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.

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

I've got good flame replaced Powerpile pilot won&#t stay lit


The flame sensor is not producing enough volts to hold the gas valve open for the pilot light. Make sure the SIDE of the pilot flame is touching the sensor. If it in engulfed by the flame it won't work right.

Furnace Pilot Light Won't Stay Lit


Here is something similar that happened to me. I went through the same steps you went through and upon closer inspection, I found a spider had made a web inside the supply line only letting a small trickle of gas through. Have you verified there is nothing blocking the line?

When I tried to light my furnace, the electrical wires from the thermostat don't spark all the time, therefore my furnace won't stay lighted. What can I do to fix this?


Is this an older furnace where you have a pilot light? Are you saying the pilot light will not stay lit? If thats the case then likely you need a new thermal couple. That is what the pilot light keeps hot while it stays lit. It is a safety device that is there so your furnace will not come on if there is no pilot light present. Very common. Hardware store item. Need Furnace's make and model #'s.
If this is an electronically controlled furnace, you will need a service call.

Is that pilot automatic? If so then a quick easy fix for this is to located the sensor and replace it or clean it up with sand paper. After ignition the control is looking for verification of ignition from that sensor. How to videos

Cozy wall heater lights fine then goes out after 3 or 4 minutes


Make sure all the wire connections are good and tight. Next lift off the cover and look for a little thermal disc mounted up by top of the heat exchanger. Most have a re-set button but not all. If you have this ,by-pass it ,see if that solves the problem, if so it may be defective, or doing its job and you have a venting problem. If you don't have this and have changed the thermocouple (was it a copper tube with a fitting that screwed into the gas valve, or did it have 2 wires, that is a pilot generator, kind of same thing) make sure the probe is set correct, with the pilot flame heating the top 1/3rd of the probe. The only thing left is the gas valve.
