Cover not sealed would that make polot keep going out


General causes for pilot going out: downward draft of air from outdoors, back-venting of furnace into water heater vent, bad thermocouple, or burner parts need cleaning, or bad gas control valve, or air in gas line.
Water heater in attic: hot attic conditions stop natural flow of vent gas upward.

Check venting by lighting a match under the vent hood and see if smoke drafts immediately upward.

I have a Kenmore Power Miser 12 gas water heater that the pilot light keeps going out. The water heater has been in service for 45 months. The pilot light has a blue flame with some orange flame flares...


check and or replace the thermal coupling. the coupling goes into the main gas control, if the coupling is bad it will shut off gas supply. as a safety measure.

Pilot keeps going out after it cycles a few times


Hot water heaters that have problems with pilot lights going out are usually fixed by adjusting or replacing the thermocouple. The thermocouple is the brass tube that is in or near the flame of the pilot light. The thermocouple acts as a valve to allow the gas to flow to the pilot light. If the thermocouple begins to go bad, it may shut the gas flow off to the pilot light. There could be other gas supply issues, but this is about the least expensive first step for the home owner. REMEMBER, you are working with gas. Take your time and be safe or have a professional replace the thermocouple.

Pilot light keeps going out


Either the pilot light orfice is dirty, and you will need to pull it out and clean it, or the thermocouple is bad. If the pilot goes out as soon as you let the button go then it is most likely the thermocouple. If the pilot stays lit for a few days or hours then you will need to clean the pilot orfice, heres how:
1 turn off the gas supply
2 unhook the main burner gas line from the thermostat, this is the line that goes to the burner
3 unhook the pilot supply line it is usually next to the main burner line
4 unhook the thermocouple from the thermostat
5 remove the burner assembly
6 take the orfice out of the pilot line and clean it out by blowing thru it, use an air compressor if needed.
7 reassemble and light pilot

Pilot light keeps going out


probably need to clean the pilot orfice out. You will have to pull the entire burner assembly to get it out. Pull the tube going to the pilot light out and the orfice will be in the end closest to the pilot light. Once you get it out there might be a white fuzzy substance on it, clean it off, the hole in the orfice is very small, DO NOT make it any bigger, find something to push thru it like a single strand off a wire brush. After cleaning re assemble and re light, this should cure your pilot problems.

Natural gas hot water heater not stying lit


Probably a bad solenoid in the gas valve. Higher voltage of a new thermocouple keeps it open longer but it still fails over a period of time. Look into a new gas valve for the water heater.

Water wizard 10P pilot light keeps going out


If the thermocoupler is defective the gas to everything is shut off. The coupler is the bulb that sits ib the pilot flame If it doesn't heat up it will sense no pilot and shut the gas off. They don't cost much and are easy to change. Good Luck, Ned
