Pilot light on Dyna Glo gas heater won't stay lit

When I light the heater...it will stay lit anywhere from 10 seconds to 24 hours. While the pilot light is lit...it appears strong...doesn't flicker. Then all of the sudden the flame will go out. The heater is about 6 years old, and has worked perfectly up until this year. I've tried to make sure any air has been bled out of the line, but it appears that maybe air is still getting in there.

My water heater pilot light won't stay lit


I would try cleaning the thermo couple surfaces with some steel wool... Both where the flame contacts the sensor, and the electrical contacts. Even a small increase in voltage may be enough to hold the pilot valve open. Both black, and white soot on the sensor end, can act as an temperature insulator, lowering the output voltage.
As for finding the part numbers for replacement: http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/media/48391/242117_RPPCR01111-Reliance-Parts-Catalog.pdf

Heater pilot light will not stay lit after knob is released


99% of the time it is just dirt and dust in the pilot light. NOT a bad thermocouple! These units generate their own power through the pilot light and it has to burn perfectly. Turn off gas supply, remove the cover and the pilot light assembly, including disconnecting the tiny gas line from the gas valve. Blow compressed air in, around and through it to get dust out. Replace everything, use soap bubbles at gas fittings to leak test and light the pilot. I bet it stays lit.

The pilot light won't stay lit, sometimes it will stay lit and start the heater, but then it just turns off within 5- 10 seconds?


Probably the thermocouple is bad and needs to be replaced. I assume you have enough fuel? . Is this a new unti or is it a bit old?
