I had this same problem and it was the hot surface ignitor. It got hot enough to light the gas but not hot enough to satisfy the flame rectifier. It would light the gas then go out. This was soon after changing the coils on the gas valve. If it doesn't glow almost white hot the gas won't stay on.

Jandy lite 2 pool heater will not stay lit.


I'm having the same issue as the above user with Jandy Lite 2 (which from what I can tell stands for the number of times that you can get this POS to work annually)!
The unit LIGHTS OFF, but WON'T STAY LIT! Igniter engages, gas valve opens, unit lights, burns for 10 seconds, and flames out. Error code FL 2, after third attempt, already replaced the flame sensor....

Pilot lite won't stay lit


Thermostat flame sensor. Do you see a little rod next to the pilot? That is what tells the main gas valve that the pilot is lit and it is safe to give gas. Easy swap, and you can usually just pick up a generic one.

Atwood motorhome furnace won't stay lit


I would say this is your electronic ignition system but it sounds like it is not getting gas. This is why they do a 3 time try and shut off. Check you supply line right down to the regulator. Hose could have got partially kinked along the line as well.

Goodman furnace gmh95090cxac wont stay lit keeps clicking will lite then clicks back off what would be the problem


Hello, if the burners light but do not stay on for more than 10 seconds, I would clean the flame sensor. The flame sensor is a metal rod that is on the opposite side of the Igniter, sometimes it gets coated by oxidation and does not sense the burner flame and shuts the Furnace down. To clean to kill power to tje furnace, remove flame sensor and clean with a steel wool, then reinstall and start Furnce back up. If this does not work then most likely the Igniter is too weak to ignite the gas and will have ro be replaced.

Have a Maytag gas dryer, model#:LDG7314AAE, flame wont stay lit.


Clean/repair your dryer vent. The flame when it exits the funnel should not touch or just barely touch the funnel end. This indicates good airflow. A good test for the clogged/damaged vent is to disconnect the vent hose from the dryer and run it as is. If the flame stays - clean vent. If not - clean air path inside the dryer

Gas dryer not heating properly


This sounds like the flame sensor is bad to me.

If it does not work properly, the unit will shut off for safety. The machine assumes that the burner did not light and rather than run gas into your house, it shuts off. It may try to start a certain number of times and then shut off.

You may be able to remove and clean it (flame sensor) lightly with a scotch brite pad and it may work properly again.

Otherwise it will need replacement.

This is a very common problem and the part is probably in stock.

Post a comment on your progress as this solution is likely to be useful to many people.

Thanks,

Tim

The problem is not the gas valve.
