Pilot lite will not stay on when I release the igniter pressure knob REH-18-N wall heater!


IS there gas? YES ok. So if you can get the pilot lit, but when you let up on the button it goes out. Few things to check. On some heaters the manf. install a safety switch to drop the pilot out if its not venting or if its over heating.

Pilot lites; but, as soon as I turn on gas flame


sounds like your thermacouplar is going out and needs replaced. Sometimes these will act like they are working fine , but when the pilot stays on for awhile and later goes out it is a sure sign that it is bad

It sounds like a thermocouple has gone bad. this is a very common problem with gas powered things ie; water heaters, furnaces, hot tubs. The telltale sign is when you release the pilot light button it won't stay lit. This is a safety feature and is relatively inexpensive and easy to repair.

Water heater will not stay lit even after replacing thermal coupl


The pilot must encompass the thermocouple "bulb" in order for the thermocouple to generate enough current to keep the pilot valve on. You must also hold the red button down for a long enough period to get the thermocouple hot. If the pilot is not large enough, it could be due to a clog in the pilot orifice at the pilot itself. Sometimes a couple of passes over the end of it with fine steel wool is all it takes to clear it.

Hope this helps. Feel free to share what you found. Thanks.

ES 160000 Endless Summer Patio heater won't stay lit


Bad thermocouple that senses the heat from the pilot light. This would be evident if you lite the pilot while holding the button down for about 30 seconds. If the pilot goes out as you release the button on the gas valve replace the thermocouple.
