Could be moisture in the gas supply line - get your gas fitter to purge the line at the meter.

SOURCE: Pilot light won't stay lit

Look for dust and lint. Look for them in places where gas should be freely flowing. I had a similar problem with an Empire Corcho wall-mounted propane ceramic catalyst heater. First it was the pilot light, then the #2 ceramic mantle. After horsing around with the gas lines and pressure regulators and trying to re-aim the pilot, it all turned out to be dust and lint in the gas passages. A little dust bunny in the brass pilot tube gave me a pilot light the shape and color of a banana. One puff of compressed air, and I got back my razor-sharp pilot. And some dust in the chimney of the #2 burner kept it burning blue/yellow and blistering paint off the upper surfaces of the heater. A bit of cleaning with a shop-vac put that right. "Passive" heaters are very much prone to this sort of problem because they rely on convection currents (i.e. LOW velocity) to get the job done. Convection currents are notorious dust collectors, as in COBWEB CITY.

SOURCE: Burners on our Brivis Buffalo 52 Ducted heater aren't getting gas

test thermosat for proper operation ie-broken wire-power if good jump stat and check if unit goes on if it does than stat internal problem or wiring problem and needs replacement or repair --if stat good check fan safety/high limit sensor if good would need to check and test thermocouple thats the tube that the pilot flame burns on may be enough to keep pilot burning but not enough to open valve for heat demand

Why won't control knob on water heater turn to off or pilot position so that I can relight


It usually needs to be pushed straight down, or into the valve body, if it is on the side.

Pilot light of gas fireplace went out. Normally the pilot light is lit, and you turn on the fireplace with a light switch on the wall. Is it safe to relight the pilot with a match ?


if the stove or fireplace doesn't have electronic ignition then yes its looking for a pilot lite I used to have a old water heater that did this , turns out the problem was defective gas regulator making the pressures go up/down also was leaking outside that's what made it noticable

Hi there i recently had another gas appliance installed and the gas was turned off while this work was done, so my hot water service pilot light went out. the guys who did this work didn't relight the...


First turn the dial on the hot water heater to the off position and wait for 5 minutes. Then turn the dial on the water heater to the pilot position. Press in the dial and use a gas grill lighter, long wooden match, or similar device to light the pilot. Once the pilot is lit, continue to hold in the dial for about 1 minute then release and turn the dial to the temperature setting that's comfortable for you.

What is the best way to leave a garage heater that will not be used for several days?Gas valve on position,pilot lit,main AC power off ?


Keep the pilot on, it really should not use much gas and are pains to relight sometimes. If you don't have to worry about things freezing, just turn the gas valve to the pilot setting. If freezing is an issue, turn down thermostat to 45 degrees.

Heater won't relight or turn back on after the thermostat turns


Verify that your pilot is staying on if you have a pilot.
Some may have electronic ignition.

Brivis Buffalo 85 central heating unit - fan stays on problem


I have exactly the same problem. When I have the cover off there is a red light on, from what I can tell is the "Over Heat Fan" this seems to keep the fan on, and because it is in error prevents the system igniting. Haven't got a solution yet it only happened last night. Stu.

Heating isn't working, can't find the red button to relight the pilot


Many times the knob to turn the gas on on the valve is also the pilot knob. Turn it to pilot and hold it down while you light the pilot. Hold it for up to a minute and release. If the pilot stays on then turn it to on. If not you need a new thermocouple.
