I light pI lot and it stays lit burners light and reach temp but then burners wont relight to keep temp unless I tap gas valve..is it my gas valve


A lot of pilot lights have a thermal coupler... the pilot light must be lit for several min to open the coupler so the pilot light will not go out.... the newer systems use an electronic ignition and no pilot light and need power to autostart but the coupler may be gone if you are holding that pilot start button down for several min and the pilot light is still going out..ps.. leave it in pilot mode for several min after initial start up before turning turning full burner operation operation operation operation operation operation operation it will snuff out the pilot light.

Under the gas valve is a removable panel. On models of that era there should also be a second panel behind the first. remove both.

the pilot light should be clearly visible.

If no pilot, turn the gas valve to OFF. wait 60 seconds. locate the tubes from the gas valve to the pilot location. turn the valve to pilot, and with a long match or grill lighter lit, place flame at the pilot location and press down on the pilot button beside the main valve.

pilot should light. If not shut off the gas and call a technician. If yes, hold the pilot button for 60 seconds, then slowly release. Pilot should stay lit. If not, shut off gas and replace thermocouple, start relight sequence over. If pilot stays lit, replace inner cover and adjust temp to 120 deg. If heater fires up, replace outer cover. Done.

If heater does not light, replace gas valve or entire unit. Water heaters have a limited life expectancy, and if my recollection is correct your unit is 10yrs past warranty.

Pilot Orifice


Okay you don't ream pilot injectors hence the 3 inch pilot which is now no good to you nothing to be done with that .

Take you manual to heating / plumbing shop tell them you need a new injector for you pilot block they might be able to sell you just the injector or a new pilot block Most pilot injectors are the same size . Or get you gas fitter back to replace it as the injector was only blocked and needed a clean . in 40 years of gas fitting I have never reamed a injector .

When I try to light the pilot, the flame light at the small hole on the outside on the pilot burner


You have a plugged pilot orifice. That small hole is basically an air intake for pilot when working properly, and when it gets a spider web or something in it, the pilot flame will burn rich (orange/yellow). When pilot orifice is plugged, that"s the next closest place for propane to escape, thus, flame . You need to either blow compressed air in to pilot tube end where flame is normally at, and hope it cleans debris out, or use a 3/8 and 5/16 wrench and disconnect pilot tube from end and remove orifice in pilot assy, and make sure small pinhole is cleared in center of orifice. Be careful when removing tube, as it is aluminum and can crack very easily, especially if older. The best thing to do would be to stop at RV store and get a new pilot tube and thermocouple assy, and install new. Not very expensive, and troubles should be over for years to come with regular servicing. New assy, comes with new orifice etc.

Rheem NatGas hot water heater model 41V50, basement flooded pilot went our how do I relight?


At the controls there should be a knob that says " Pilot"... "ON" Turn the knob to pilot and hold it down while lighting the pilot lite. Keep holding it down until it gets warm enough that when you leave it up the pilot stays on. Once the pilot lite stays on on it's own turn it to on.

Pilot wont stay on


Thermocouple has failed., replace thermocouple or dirty pilot assembly, not enough heat being genrated to produce the 30 mili volts D.C. current to hold the pilot valve open. Clean pilot orfice. Remove assembly and pilot tubing from gas valve. Blow into pilot tubing to remove dirt.. Make sure pilot flame is engulfing the thermocouple.

Pilot is not heating thermalcoupler


You may have a dirty pilot orifice. Try this. Turn off the pilot by turning the control knob to off. Remove the front panel to get access to the pilot orifice. Use a can of compressed air with attached straw (the same stuff you use to clean computer keyboards) and blow out the pilot orifice, which is inside the pilot assembly where the pilot flame burns. Blow it out from the top and from the sides through the air holes. Then relight the pilot and see if that improves the flame size and color (blue) to heat the thermocouple. Douglas

My 1.5 yr old gas water heater has a pilot light problem


YOUR WATER HEATER HAS WHAT IS CALLED A STANDING PILOT-STAYS LIT ALWAYS WHEN THE PILOT GOES OUT YOU LOOSE EVERYTHING. YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE THERMOCOUPLE WHICH KEEP THE PILOT LIT. ONCE THE PILOT IS LIT THE THERMOCOUPLE SENDS IN MILLIVOLTS TO THE BURNER TO SAY ITS READY FOR BURNING
IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILURE WITH THIS REPLACEMENT PLEASE FIND SOME ONE WHO CAN. IT IS NOT HARD TO DO ASK A NABOR OR FRIENDS SOME HAS TO KNOW HOW. SERVICE COMPANYS ARE OUT FOR THE MONEY FOR A 10 MINUTE JOB
